Natural Factors Critical Care Probiotic - A 9 strain formula containing 100 billion active cells. This potent
one-a-day formulation contains four Lactobacilli strains and B. bifidum,
proven to help eliminate or reduce the growth of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus
aureus (MRSA) and to lower incidence of Clostridium difficile-associated
diarrhea. Offering significant numbers of colony-forming units (cfu) of L.
paracasei, L. plantarum, B. breve, and L. acidophilus, Natural
Factors Critical Care Probiotic can quickly restore the diversity of microflora
after antibiotic use, as well as reduce the incidence of antibiotic-associated
diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and constipation. Enteric coating is not required for all probiotic strains. With regards to stomach acid resistance, not all strains are created equal. Natural Factors has carefully selected naturally acid-resistant strains so they may be consumed at any time, with or without meals, and are safely delivered to the intestine unharmed.
