    Probiotics FAQ

    What is a Probiotic supplement?

    A probiotic supplement is a product that is used to introduce beneficial, “friendly” bacteria into your body.

    Why would I need to put bacteria in my body?

    There are already billions of bacteria in your digestive system; some are considered harmful, while others are beneficial. While you can't completely eliminate all the harmful bacteria, maximizing the number of friendly bacteria in your system can make an amazing difference in your overall health, since about 70% of your immune system is located in your gut. Additionally, friendly bacteria help to build a healthy digestive system and play a role in producing vitamin K and some B-vitamins.

    Are there other ways to get these friendly bacteria?

    There are two popular ways to get your probiotics: through food or taking supplements. Yogurt is the most common food that contains live, friendly bacteria. While it's a healthy choice, it most likely contains only 1 or 2 strains and since yogurt usually does not contain prebiotics, the friendly bacteria in yogurt may not survive all the way to the gut.

    What are prebiotics?

    Prebiotics are nondigestible nutrients that are used as an energy source by certain beneficial bacteria. Prebiotics are sometimes known as fermentable fiber.

    Probiotics, in contrast, are the beneficial, or friendly, bacteria themselves. By acting as a food source, prebiotics help sustain the probiotic bacteria.

    What is Flora Protect?

    Flora Protect is a multi-strain probiotic supplement that helps promote a healthy digestive system and maintain a healthy immune system.*

Close cap tightly after each use and store this product in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. If you refrigerate this product, bring it to room temperature before opening to avoid condensation. This product is sensitive to moisture.

    What results can I expect from taking Flora Protect Probiotics?

    Flora Protect Probiotics add good bacteria to your digestive system. Not having enough good bacteria in the digestive system can lead to occasional digestive issues, such as gas, bloating and constipation. Each of the eight strains of good bacteria in Flora Protect plays a unique role in helping to restore the balance of good bacteria in your digestive system. They are known to help with occasional digestive issues such as gas, bloating and constipation. Overall, you can expect Flora Protect to maintain a healthy immune system and support good digestion.*

    When will I see results with Flora Protect?

    Restoring digestive balance is a process. Some people may see results within the first few days, while for others, it may require weeks to restore your body's natural defense against occasional digestive upsets like gas, bloating and irregularity. For best results, take Flora Protect every night before bed, preferably on an empty stomach.

    Is Flora Protect approved by the FDA?

    Flora Protect is a dietary supplement, which does not require approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Our products are in compliance with the FDA's dietary supplement regulations, called the “Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act” (DSHEA), and comply with current Good Manufacturing Practices created by the FDA.

    Why does DrNatura recommend using Flora Protect Probiotics? Is Colonix harming the good bacteria in my body?

    The reason we recommend Flora Protect with the Colonix Program is NOT because the Colonix Program may harm good bacteria in the colon, but because modern diet (sugar, caffeine, white bread), the use of antibiotics and certain other medications, and other factors may result in reduction of good bacteria in the GI tract.

    Not only will Flora Protect maximize the effectiveness of the Colonix Program, it may also help address specific issues, such as digestive issues. While the Colonix Program is 100% effective on its own, Flora Protect complements its effectiveness and can be taken over the long-term to maintain a healthy immune system and support good digestion.*
