What are probiotics? Bio-Kult contains 14 live probiotic strains to complement the existing gut ﬂora naturally present in a healthy person’s digestive system. There are trillions of microorganisms including different types of bacteria that live in our gut – the gut microbiome. They reside naturally within your body’s gastrointestinal tract & play an important role in maintaining overall well-being. What is ‘gut dysbiosis’? Sometimes, the balance of bacteria in your gut can become imbalanced from things such as ill health, poor diet and/or antibiotics (which can kill off the necessary bacteria in your system), resulting in something called ‘gut dysbiosis’. You can help restore the balance in your digestive system by eating a diet with a rich rainbow of fruit and vegetables and can further assist this by taking a bacterial supplement.About Bio-Kult: Our award-winning nutritional probiotic supplement (see images further down) is a scientiﬁcally developed, advanced multi-strain formulation containing 14 live probiotic strains designed to target the digestive system. Bio-Kult does not need to be refrigerated and is suitable to be taken alongside antibiotics, by babies, toddlers, children, when pregnant, when travelling, by vegetarians and as part of a healthy diet.How do I use Bio-Kult Advanced? Our capsules can be pulled apart and the contents sprinkled onto food, mixed with a drink or swallowed whole. Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied diet and a healthy lifestyle. Keep out of reach of children. Store in a cool dry place – out of direct sunlight.Don’t probiotics need to be kept in the fridge? As with all Bio-Kult products, there is no need to refrigerate and they can be stored at room temperature. This is in thanks to our unique freeze-drying process where the probiotics in the Bio-Kult range are encapsulated during the freeze drying (lyophilisation) process, which may aid protection from the harsh acid environment of the stomach. Won’t the stomach acid kill all the bacteria off before they can start working? All our Bio-Kult products are proven to survive the high acidity of stomach acid.
