Bio-Culture contains up to 10 billion "friendly" bacteria, Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium lactis known as probiotics. Probiotics are scientifically proven to help in the digestive system by replacing only the good bacteria. They may also help strengthen the lining of the intestines so that bad bacteria cannot pass through. Bio-Culture is necessary for helping to maintain a healthy digestive system at times of stress, at times of illness (particularly after courses of antibiotics), after the occasional over-indulgence, during/after holidays, for women on the contraceptive pill. Bio-Culture may also help maintain a healthy immune system, since the intestinal tract forms an important barrier against harmful organisms as part of the body´s normal immune defence. Bio-Culture is specifically formulated to be stable at room temperature which sets Bio-Culture apart from many other probiotic products which need to be stored in a refrigerator which is inconvenient for travellers.
