It’s the secret that everyone knows: NOT ALL BACTERIA ARE BAD.
Everyone has bacteria in their intestinal tract, or gut. But busy schedules lead to quick meals or processed foods that are more convenient to make and consume. Over the course of time, this can lead to an unbalance in the gut, which in turn slows down the body processes as it changes its focus to the intestinal system.
Building up good bacteria can be a struggle without dietary changes (consistently followed); and assistance is necessary to get things back in line and functioning properly. All the processes of the body are literally tied to the intestinal tract and its overall health and balance. When it is out of whack, the other processes also tend to suffer or become less effective.
The PROBIOTIC DEFENSE FORMULA is a proprietary formula of pre-biotic fiber and six strains of probiotic microorganisms in a unique double layer vegetable capsule. It delivers 6 billion CFUs of active probiotic cultures and soluble pre-biotic FOS (fructooligosaccharides) that encourage friendly bacterial growth.* The time-release, double-capsule delivery system is designed to help protect the sensitive probiotic cultures from stomach acid. PROBIOTIC DEFENSE FORMULA offers a unique, safe, and effective way to deliver the well-recognized digestive and immune system support benefits of probiotics.*
• Promotes a positive balance and proliferation of beneficial bacteria.*

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Take one double-layer capsule three times daily with food for 10 days each month to promote colonization of friendly digestive flora.* Can be used more frequently and for extended periods of time when digestive flora has been compromised by digestive stressors. PROBIOTIC DEFENSE FORMULA also may be used when traveling to boost digestive immunities, or once a day as an ongoing maintenance program for people with occasional digestive discomfort.*
Some people may experience an initial change to digestive schedule and function when they begin using pre-biotic FOS and probiotics. For most people, these symptoms are mild and should disappear after a few days. Pregnant or nursing women and people with known medical conditions should consult a physician before using. Do not use if bottle is opened or capsules are broken. Note: Although the PROBIOTIC DEFENSE FORMULA double-layer encapsulation technology makes it unnecessary to refrigerate, it is suggested that unopened bottles of PROBIOTIC DEFENSE FORMULA be stored in a cool, dry place and opened bottles be refrigerated when possible.
