Probiotics perfect for pockets, purses and on-the-go people. Primadophilus® Optima 50B Digestive Balance probiotic contains 50 billion active probiotics including researched strains NCFM® and Bl-04. Helps support intestinal/gastrointestinal health. Guaranteed potency through date of expiration and no refrigeration required! Dairy and gluten free!
Delayed Release Capsules: Primadophilus® Optima formulas deliver probiotics in a capsule that helps resist stomach acid better than standard capsules to help deliver probiotics directly into your intestine.
Our formula combines 15 strains, carefully selected for whole body health. In a temperature- and humidity-controlled environment, the strains are cleaned to remove toxins and weak cells. A vegan, delayed-release capsule with a fermented prebiotic ensures that the strains pass through the stomach acid, reaching the gut where they thrive. The resulting probiotic is stable at room temperature, and the label claim is guaranteed at expiry.
Multi strain probiotics are proven to be more effective than single strain therapy because multi strains work together synergistically – 1+1=3! Our carefully selected mix of bifido and lacto bacteria mimic the balance found in the human microbiome, with strains chosen to benefit the whole body.
We’ve formulated a unique natural, vegan and allergen-free delayed-release capsule so that it gets to where it needs to go. Free of allergens, and plastic (ew!)

Probiotic supplementation provides live microorganisms that temporarily modify gut flora, helping to maintain natural intestinal balance, improve digestion and immunity. Natural Factors Ultimate Multi Probiotic contains active cells of a blend of specially cultured strains of probiotics, chosen for their compatibility and ability to survive stomach acidity.
Natural Factors Ultimate Multi Probiotic provides probiotic strains that support digestive health and immunity. Each strain has been specially selected and cultured for their compatibility and natural resistance to gastric acid, allowing the probiotics to reach the intestines at full potency. This formulation offers both Lactobacilli to support small intestine health, along with Bifidobacteria, the most prevalent friendly bacteria in the large intestine.
Together, these strains of probiotics help maintain the permeability of the intestinal barrier, and support overall health and well-being. With age, illness, and antibiotic use, healthy gut bacteria begin to decline, increasing susceptibility to pathogenic colonization and resulting in inflammation, tissue damage, and immune system dysfunction.
Each strain in the formula has natural resistance to gastric acids. Gastric resistance is critical to surviving the stomach’s acidity without an enteric coating and reaching the intestines at full potency.
Natural Factors Acidophilus & Bifidus contains three strains of probiotics to assist with the maintenance of normal intestinal health. Each capsule contains goat milk powder to provide an excellent environment for lactic bacteria to grow. Supplementing with Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium will crowd out unwanted bacteria by repopulating the gastrointestinal tract.
Supplemental bacteria are called probiotics, meaning “for life” or “in support of life”, because they are the natural guardians of robust intestinal health and vitality. Friendly or probiotic bacteria toil 24 hours a day, holding at bay and dominating the many pathogenic bacteria, viruses, yeast, and other microorganisms that unavoidably inhabit the intestinal tract. Given opportunity, the pathogens succeed in colonizing by adhering to the intestinal tract, inflicting disruptions to our intestinal health and throughout the whole body. Beneficial bacteria also have a profound effect on the immune system, boosting immunity to combat allergies, flu, and the common cold.
The human intestinal tract contains trillions of bacteria in a natural but delicate state of balance between the beneficial bacteria and their good effects, and the pathogenic microorganisms and their potentially adverse effects. Under conditions of high stress or prolonged stress, antibiotic therapy, vacation or business travel, and encounters with food or water-borne pathogens, this natural protective balance can be disrupted, resulting in a decline in the number of beneficial or probiotic bacteria.
Natural Factors Acidophilus & Bifidus contains three strains of probiotics to assist with the maintenance of normal intestinal health: Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Lactobacillus acidophilus, and Bifidobacterium bifidum. The capsules contain goat milk powder to provide an excellent environment to grow lactic bacteria.Show Less

URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS AFFECT 80% OF WOMEN
Canadian women make about 500,000 visits to doctors per year due to UTIs. Half of all women over the age of 65 experience at least one infection per year. UTIs affect 80 percent of women at least once in their lifetime.
The vast majority of UTIs are caused by bacteria (E. coli) that are commonly found in the vagina and/or colon and rectal area and are introduced through the urethra (the tube that carries urine out of the body). Women are more susceptible to infection than men because their urethra is shorter and situated closer to the anus. Risks that can create a vulnerability to UTIs are blockages in the urethra (due to either past infections or structural abnormalities), stress, pregnancy, food allergies, sexual intercourse, oral contraceptive use, diaphragms, diabetes, a weakened immune system and hormonal imbalances brought on by menopause. Waiting too long to urinate also increases your risk. Candida overgrowth is also a contributing factor. Women with recurring vaginal infections have more UTIs.
Antibiotic therapy is the most common treatment. Bacterial resistance, candida yeast overgrowth, irritable bowel and stomach upset are a few side effects from this treatment. Furthermore, if you have recurring UTIs, antibiotics can become less effective. Today, many experts recommend that natural treatments using cranberry and probiotics be used first before antibiotics if no fever or pain is present.
Cranberries effectively treat UTIs. The proanthocyanidins (tannins) in cranberry inhibit E. coli from sticking to bladder walls and halt infection. The cranberry in PROBIOTIC plus contains all the vital parts are used including the pulp, seeds, skin and juice. Most cranberry products use only dehyrated juice.
In a Current Bioactive Compounds study, ninety women between 18 and 40 years of age were followed for 90 days. The subjects were randomly assigned to three groups including a placebo group, a low dose treatment group (500 mg daily) and a high dose treatment group (1000 mg daily). The study found that a daily dose of 500 mg of whole cranberry was shown to significantly reduce the presence of E. coli in test subjects and provided symptomatic relief.
Probiotics, "friendly bacteria," are essential for preventing and treating not only yeast infections but also UTIs. Bifidobacterium longum (BB536) has been extensively researched for 30 years and has been proven to prevent and treat candida yeast infections and to replenish good bacteria after antibiotic use. BB536 supports the immune system and lowers cholesterol too. It has also been shown to reduce E. coli infection and to prevent diarrhea and constipation.
BB536 is shelf stable so it does not require refrigeration and it has the highest count of friendly, good bacteria found in these types of supplements. PROBIOTIC plus is an affordable combination of whole cranberry and BB536 Bifidobacterium to help eliminate UTIs and reduce the need for antibiotic therapy with its side effects.
