Aid good digestion and support your overall health with USANA Probiotic. It supports harmony in your GI tract by helping to establish a better microbial balance with a boost of friendly bacteria.*
1—contains two strains of bacteria shown to colonize the intestines and deliver health results
Each stick pack of USANA Probiotic contains a unique 50/50 mixture of two of the most studied probiotic bacteria strains: Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis (BB-12®) and Lactobacillus rhamnosus (LGG®). These bacteria are similar to the Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus that are part of a natural gut flora (primarily found in the colon). Dozens of studies on these strains have demonstrated benefits for digestive health and immunity.*
These strains are so effective, in part, because they survive transit through the harsh, acidic environment of the stomach to colonize the intestines. Reaching the intestines alive is essential for getting results from your probiotic. The strength of the strains is boosted by a small amount of inulin fiber in the formula. Inulin acts a prebiotic, which feeds your natural beneficial bacteria and may further support establishment of Bifidobacterium in the intestine.*
2—delivers a reliable amount of live bacteria to provide real benefits—even after 18 months
Generally, at least one billion Colony Forming Units (CFU) of total active bacteria are needed daily to provide probiotic effects throughout the GI tract. But most of the yogurts or other foods people rely on to get their beneficial bacteria contain an unspecified or unverified number of viable bacteria.
So, if you’re relying on yogurts to replenish your beneficial bacteria, it certainly won’t hurt your health. But it might not really be helping it either.
Take away the guesswork with a product that you can trust will deliver an amount of bacteria with real belly benefits. USANA Probiotic is guaranteed to contain 12 billion CFU of active bacteria when it’s made—a level shown to be effective in clinical studies.*
And even months after manufacture, USANA’s 12 billion CFU-level is still stable.
Stability can be a challenge with some strains of bacteria—even when refrigerated. So, their shelf-life is short. But USANA’s blend is designed to remain stable at room temperature (25° C) for 18 months. This stability has been verified in independent and in-house tests. And, you can preserve your probiotics even longer by storing them in the refrigerator (which is advised in hot or humid climates).
