Bio-Kult Advanced Probiotic, 120 count
Bio-Kult Advanced Probiotic - 120 Capsules
Bio-Kult provides a high concentration of multispecies, multistrain probiotics that provide targeted support to the colonization sites in the gut to promote healthy, comfortable digestive function.
The beneficial bacteria in Bio-Kult are micro-encapsulated during the freeze-drying process, providing two main benefits:
• These live probiotics are protected from the harsh acid environment of the stomach and are therefore able to colonize the full length of the gastrointestinal tract.
• The process allows Bio-Kult to be stored at room temperature without the need for refrigeration.
How Gut Bacteria can support health
Probiotics populate the gut with beneficial bacteria, which support a healthy digestive process and the body’s ability to efficiently digest food, improve nutrient absorption and toxin elimination.
Additionally, about 80 percent of the immune system resides in the gastrointestinal tract in the form of receptor cells. Because of this prime location, what happens in the gut can profoundly influence immune function, making the balance between “good” and “bad” bacteria of paramount importance.
A healthy gut possesses a large, thriving population of beneficial or friendly bacteria, or probiotics, supporting immune system receptor cells. They help form a protective barrier within the colon and intestines. Probiotics support immune function by preventing the build-up of harmful microorganisms, which can lead to health compromise and a weaker immune function. This protective barrier also provides protection from infection and plays an important role in immune responses, making the gut a significant factor in maintaining a healthy immune system.
Bio-Kult Advanced Probiotic was formulated by a team of doctors, including Gut and Psychology Syndrome author Dr. Campbell McBride, and is recommended for those on the GAPS Nutritional Program. The GAPS program for digestive healing includes diet, supplementation, and detoxification and life-style changes.
The number one essential supplement for GAPS patients is an effective therapeutic strength probiotic.
Bio-Kult capsules can be pulled apart and the contents sprinkled on to food, mixed in a drink or swallowed whole.

Bio-Kult contains traces of milk that would not affect lactose intolerant sufferers, but if you have an allergy to milk, we would suggest you talk to your practitioner before taking Bio-Kult.
Are there any side effects from taking Bio-Kult?
Bio-Kult contains a high concentration of beneficial microorganisms. If there is a pathogenic overload in your gut, and you start off with a high dose of Bio-Kult, in a small number of people a ‘die-off’ side effect, such as bloating, may be experienced for a few days.

- • A good probiotic should have as many different species of beneficial bacteria as possible
- • A mixture of strains from different groups of probiotic bacteria is more beneficial than just one group.
- • A good probiotic should have a concentrated amount of bacteria, at least 8 billion cells of bacteria per gram
- • The manufacturer of the probiotic should test every batch for strength and bacterial composition and be prepared to publish the results
Bio-Kult is doctor developed and GAPS compliant to restore intestinal balance and nourish digestive healing.
