Protocol Ortho Dophilus is a unique combination of 8 different species of beneficial bacteria designed to support gastrointestinal health and proper immune system functions. This is important, because we live in an era where we are exposed to a variety of challenges, from environmental toxins to invasion from undesireable particles.
Beneficial bacteria (often called probiotics) such as Acidophilus and Bifidus, act to rebuild and maintain healthy flora in the gastrointestinal tract. They are also helpful in aiding proper digestion and detoxification. The addition of FOS is used to support healthy intestinal flora, providing them with nutrients.
Because each capsule is enteric coated, Protocol for Life Balance Ortho Dophilus delivers its microflora directly to the intestine, bypassing the harsh acidic conditions of the stomach. Ortho Dophilus requires no refrigeration, though it may increase long-term potency. Four Billion organisms guaranteed at expiration. Health Functions:
