World-renowned nutrition expert Udo Erasmus has created 7 different formulas to provide the right probiotic supplement for every member of the family.
Udo’s Choice® Probiotic Blends are tailored to meet your needs. The type and amount of probiotic bacterial strains needed for best results will change at different stages of life and under different health conditions.* All 7 blends of Udo’s probiotics use only medicinal strains of friendly, probiotic bacteria.
By using the right probiotic supplement, you can take a proactive approach to maintaining gastrointestinal well-being, a core foundation of overall good health.
Udo’s Choice® Probiotic Blends are best taken after meals. All of the bacterial strains chosen have been specially developed and tested for their gastric resistance. Unlike the live bacterial content of many foods being marketed today, the probiotic strains in Udo’s blends are able to survive the stomach acids to reach the intestinal tract at full potency.
Why do we need probiotic supplements?
While most people assume they have a healthy intestinal tract, lifestyle and environmental factors can compromise the digestive system. This allows undesirable bacteria to take hold and cause problems. Such factors may include poor eating habits, excess alcohol consumption, chlorinated drinking water, stress, the use of antibiotics in food production and medical treatments, and a number of other factors, including health problems and simply aging, which can greatly reduce the number of friendly bacteria in our systems.
When the ratio of good bacteria to bad is out of balance, problems begin to arise such as poor absorption of nutrients and intestinal toxicity. This can result in gas, bloating, diarrhea and constipation, among other discomforts. If this imbalance is left untreated, the symptoms can become chronic and can compromise the immune system and lead to other serious health concerns.
Healthy microflora can be compromised by the prolonged use of prescription drugs. In fact, many women who use antibiotics over a prolonged period of time develop yeast infections. That’s because antibiotics not only kill off pathogenic bacteria, they also eliminate good bacteria. This may enable yeast overgrowth and other imbalances to thrive.
Udo’s Choice Probiotic Blends help support the growth of a healthy natural microflora. These friendly bacteria are necessary for limiting the proliferation of undesirable bacteria, fortifying the immune system, while helping the body carry out the digestive process as nature intended.
Udo’s Choice® product integrity is ensured by the use of recyclable, nitrogen-flushed glass bottles and metal caps that do not allow air or light to affect the contents. Our probiotics contain only an average of 1% dairy and soy lecithin combined.
Refrigeration ensures maximum potency and stability of active bacterial cells, right up to the expiry date on the label, so look for Udo’s Choice® Probiotics in the cooler section of your health food store.
Some products which are fine out of the refrigerator for shipping, may require refrigeration upon arrival or after opening. Please check labels for details.
