Probiotic supplements are made up of various strains of beneficial bacteria which support the gastrointestinal tract (the gut). By having a balance of good bugs in our tummies we support our bodies immune systems. There are actually 500 different strains of bacteria in our GI tract which need to live in balance to support our health.
When things get out of balance it can really upset our bodies immune responses. The delicate balance of microflora can easily be upset by diet, lifestyle factors, antibiotics (which wipe out all of the bugs, both good and bad) and environmental toxins.
Probiotic Supplements offer support for the body and assist your body to restore balance to the gut again.
- Supporting the balance and harmony of bacteria in the gut.
- Assisting the body with nutritional support after a course of antibiotics.
- Thousands of times stronger than the strains found in yoghurt

Probiotics for kids
You can find probiotics in a number of kids supplements from your favourite brands including Bioglan, Nutra Life and Inner Health, all of which you will find in our range.
It can be useful to choose a probiotic that also contains prebiotics, Think of prebiotics like the fuel that nourishes the good bugs in your probiotic to support them being used by the body, while the probiotic is the actual beneficial bacteria themselves.
Spore Forming Probiotics
We stock one spore forming probiotic, called Prescript Assist, in our catalogue. Prescript Assist is a little different to the probiotics you are used to seeing as it is super strong, highly viable in the gut, and because is made from soil based organisms rather than that of the dairy cow. It is great for people with food intolerances or on a vegan or paleo diet. It has also been coined a "probiotic gut buster" for the way it supports your body's natural ability to manage the desire to consume excess calories from food. Page updated 06/04/18 12:47:36 p.m.
