Bio Kult 120 capsules
Bio-Kult was formulated by a team of doctors, nutritionists and scientists dedicated to advancing the research and use of health supplements.
The healthy body naturally hosts trillions of beneficial bacteria. Amongst other things, they help to support and maintain a strong immune system and a healthy digestive system. Today’s lifestyle of stress and poor nutrition can compromise these essential functions. The complete formula in Bio-Kult helps balance and maintain these natural systems against pathogenic and opportunistic organisms.
It is of fundamental importance that we have an adequate level of these probiotic bacteria in our bodies at all times. With fourteen strains of beneficial bacteria at a concentration of 10 billion per gram, Bio-Kult is one of the most powerful available.
What are probiotics?
Dr Roy Fuller defined a probiotic as: “A preparation of viable microorganisms which is consumed by humans or other animals with the aim of inducing beneficial effects, qualitatively or quantitatively, influencing their gut microflora and/or modifying their immune status.” (Fuller, 2004). This definition emphasises the importance of viable living cells as essential components of probiotics.
The word probiosis originated from the Greek pro (for) and biosis (life), and is therefore opposite in meaning to antibiosis, which promotes the proliferation of bacterial species within the gastrointestinal tract. Probiosis is defined as 'the property of the normal adult flora to resist the overgrowth of component strains and the establishment of foreign strains’ and is reinforced or re-established by probiotics. The concept of probiotics applied to preventative medicine is claimed to have originated from Eli Metchnikoff. He postulated that the longevity observed in the Balkan people was due to the regular consumption of soured milk containing Lactobacillus bulgaricus.
Bio-Kult is on a Maltodextrin base, with a guaranteed minimum probiotic count of 10 billion per gram. The capsule size is 200 mg, hence 2 billion active probiotics per capsule. We feel strongly that our customers should be able to check that the product is what it says.
Every batch of Bio-Kult is tested by a UKAS-certified, independent laboratory for bacterial count. CLICK HERE...
