Natural Factors Critical Care Probiotic 55 Billion Active Cells
Natural Factors Critical Care Probiotic 55 Billion Active Cells is a 9-strain formula that includes five strains of Bifidobacteria and four strains of Lactobacilli. This potent formulation includes L. paracasei, L. rhamnosus, L. acidophilus, L. plantarum, and B. bifidum, proven to help eliminate or reduce the growth of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), and to lower incidence of Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea.
This multistrain formula can quickly restore the diversity of microflora after antibiotic use, with L. acidophilus particularly helpful in counteracting antibiotic-associated diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and constipation*.
Each strain in this formulation has been carefully selected for its natural resistance to gastric acid, allowing the probiotics to reach the intestines at full potency*. Critical Care Probiotic 55 Billion Active Cells has a guaranteed potency of 95 billion active cells per capsule at manufacture and at least 55 billion at expiry.
