Advance - Probiotic

Advance Probiotic is an oral supplement of live, beneficial intestinal micro-organisms for nutritional health and well-being. It is taken to restore the normal microflora of the gastrointestinal tract and other tissues of the body normally inhabited by friendly bacteria. When potent probiotic supplements, such as Advance Probiotic, are supplied regularly, chances are greatly increased for establishing and maintaining a healthy population of beneficial intestinal microorganisms. Bacteria are continually in competition for colonization space. If harmful microorganisms proliferate, the equilibrium is disturbed, and it becomes difficult for friendly bacteria to maintain their necessary territory to colonize the intestine. Antibiotics tend to kill off both beneficial and harmful bacteria, and thus may disturb the normal, healthy balance of intestinal microorganisms.

Advance Probiotic may be taken by infants, children, adults or the elderly. The dose can be individualized for any age or condition. It contains 14 strains of friendly bacteria that colonize both the large and small intestine.
