Ultra Probioplex IB is an extra high strength version of our popular long-standing product Ultra Probioplex. It helps to support a healthy balance of intestinal flora and has broad-ranging intestinal, digestive and immune system support functions.
Which Strains Are Included? - Ultra Probioplex IB contains a non-dairy live bacteria formula featuring enhanced potency and highly viable, pure strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus (NCFM strain) and Bifidobacterium lactis (Bi-07) to support lower bowel health.
Number of Bacteria at Date of Consumption? – Ultra Probioplex IB provides a guaranteed potency of 60 billion live organisms per serving, all the way through until the expiry date. To assure maximum survival and potency, it’s produced in a freeze-dried form and then refrigerated throughout storage and shipping, and should also be refrigerated at home.
Can the Bacteria Survive Stomach Acidity? - The 50:50 ratio of L. acidophilus and B. lactis have been chosen specifically as they are two extremely well-researched bacteria strains that are known for their ability to survive the acidic stomach environment and their ability to adhere to the intestinal wall. Adherence to the intestinal wall is essential in order for a live bacteria supplement to be effective.
Is it Suitable for Children? - Yes, this product can be taken from 8 years. Recommended dosage for children: 8-12 years: 1 capsule daily

Are there any side effects from taking probiotics? You may experience a change in bowel function/habits for a few days which may present as a gurgling/wind/change in bowel frequency. This is perfectly natural with taking any probiotic and will generally settle down after a week or so. Reducing the dosage may help alleviate this.

Although this product seems expensive you get what you pay for, nothing compares to the strength of these. If the normal version (Ultraprobioplex ND) doesn't seem to do the job then these should be considered if re population and re balancing of your gut microbiome is the aim.
