Frequently Asked Questions
Will transportation effect the stability of my probiotic order?
For small orders of probiotics, we ship within a fit for purpose foil insulated bubble-wrapped post pack with frozen therma gel to protect against extreme heat.
On arrival to your premise or residence the pack and bottle will be at ambient temperature, our stability data shows that the probiotics have not deteriorated and are shelf stable for up to one month.
If left on the shelf our probiotics will deteriorate over time so we suggest that you place them in the refrigerator upon receipt. So everyday our probiotics are left at room temperature they lose one day of expiration date.
If the probiotics are kept refrigerated they will meet the colon forming unit (CFU) count on the label up to the expiry date on the label.
Even once opened our probiotics are stable until the expiration date on the bottle.
