Pro8–Forte™ contains 8 strains of beneficial probiotic organisms to assist in maintaining or improving your general wellbeing. This strong high potency, multistrain probiotic supports healthy immune function and may assist in alleviating symptoms associated with intestinal flora imbalance such as diarrhoea and constipation.
There are 114 billion bacteria in one capsule and 8 strains of probiotics.
Spectrumceuticals source specific probiotic strains to encapsulate and within this formula in high potency dosages are human trialled scientifically studied strains Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG, Lactobacillus acidophilus LA02, Lactobacillus plantarum LP01, Bifidobacterium lactis HN019, Bifidobacterium breve M16V and Bifidobacterium longum BB536. This formula also contains Lactobacillus casei and Lactobacillus gasseri probiotic strains.
The capsules are made of hydroxypropylmethylcellulose (HPMC) which is 100% vegetable cellulose and suitable for vegetarians.
Ideally, probiotics should be taken with or just prior to a meal containing some fats. Recent studies suggest that the survival of the bacteria is linked with the fat content more than protein. Probiotics given 30 minutes after a meal do not survive in as high numbers.
Pro8-Forte™ can be stored at room temperature, approximately 25°C for up to one month without having a major effect on potency. If it is left at room temperature for long periods of time or exposed to excessive heat, the number of beneﬁcial bacteria can greatly reduce.
Mild bloating may occur during the ﬁrst few days after starting use. This is usually due to the changing intestinal microflora. If you experience bloating, you may need to reduce your daily intake to allow this adjustment. If diarrhoea persists for more than 6 hours in infants under 6 months; 12 hours in children under 3 years; 24 hours in children aged 3–6 years; or 48 hours in adults and children over 6 years, seek medical advice. Drink plenty of water. If symptoms persist consult your healthcare practitioner.
Pro8-Forte™ is believed to be compatible with most types of drugs, however always consult with your doctor regarding medications and interactions. If taken with antibiotics, Pro8-Forte™ should be consumed away from antibiotic doses thereby maximising its efficacy.
