"I've tried many probiotics over the years, but none have worked until I tried this one. I don’t just like it; I depend on it!"

Have you heard the old adage, “Good health begins in the gut”? I believe there’s a lot of truth in that statement, and I’m not alone. As far back as the late 1800s, researchers like Nobel Prize-winning scientist Elie Metchnikoff began to recognize the importance of microorganisms in the gut as they relate to everything from digestion to immune health. Dr. Metchnikoff published a groundbreaking book called The Prolongation of Life, in which he argued that consumption of live bacteria can be beneficial not only for gastrointestinal health but for total-body wellness and even longevity. That was in 1908. Since that time, countless scientists inspired by Metchnikoff have succeeded in confirming these theories and developing new ways to effectively introduce beneficial microorganisms into the human body. Over 100 years later, Dr. Metchnikoff’s “radical” theories have become accepted physiological facts. One of the people who followed Dr. Metchnikoff’s lead was my dear friend, the late Dr. William Crook, who achieved fame with his publication of The Yeast Connection. Dr. Crook spent his professional career convincing me and millions of others that Metchnikoff was right and that bacteria—beneficial and otherwise—have great impact on our health and well-being. Because I’ve been using probiotics myself for many years, and because I keep up with the latest research and development of new supplemental ingredients, I wanted to create the ultimate supplement, one that would make both Metchnikoff and Crook proud. The result is my Ultimate Probiotic Formula, designed with “next generation” probiotic ingredients guaranteed to survive the stomach environment for successful colonization.
When formulating this product for my personal use, I selected six of the most effective strains of beneficial bacteria. I chose them for their proven stability and their demonstrated ability to colonize within the gastrointestinal tract. I also added Kyolic’s® proprietary Kyo-Dophilus® blend, which I’ve had great success with over the years. And finally, I included the patented fructooligosaccharide NutraFlora® scFOS,® which “feeds” the bacteria and helps them thrive. All in all, my Ultimate Probiotic Formula gives you 60 billion viable organisms per capsule in a precision blend guaranteed to remain stable in the bottle and viable inside your body. It works for me, and I know it will work for you.
