6 Targeted Probiotic Strains (including Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium) because bacterial diversity is key when it comes to gut health.
White Kidney Bean Extract has been clinically studied to help with the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates. This helps reduce the caloric impact of any starchy foods you eat and supports healthy blood sugar levels already within a normal range.
Orafti P95 Prebiotics have been studied to support weight management by encouraging your probiotics to set up shop and thrive in your gut. In short, prebiotics are to probiotics what fertilizer is to a garden.
Long Shelf Life & No Refrigeration Necessary. With the patented LiveBac® manufacturing process, we offer a guaranteed, extended shelf life with zero refrigeration. Many probiotics don't provide a date of any kind because their organisms die so quickly after being manufactured.
5 Billion Colony Forming Units† per BIO-tract® tablet, which is equivalent to 75 Billion CFU (colony forming units) of standard probiotic capsules!‡
That's it. Because with time-release delivery, the benefits are being delivered deep inside your gut hour by hour.
Made in the USA. Our probiotics are manufactured in Washington and Colorado in facilities that are GMP certified through NSF. We adhere to the strictest quality control and FDA guidelines and perform rigorous testing on every lot to ensure they are survivable and as the label states.
Premium Probiotic Supplement. This formula is vegetarian, non-GMO, and free of dairy, gluten, and yeast. There is also no soy, sugar, nuts, artificial flavors, artificial colors, or preservatives.
Better Body does not contain any strains that are not resident to the human gut, like Soil Based Organisms (SBOs) or active yeasts.
The Science Behind the Survivability
Hyperbiotics Better Body Has 15x More Survivability Than Capsules.‡
Let us explain…
Probiotics help replenish the beneficial gut bacteria that may have been depleted as a result of modern life and they help support overall health and well-being.
However, studies show that without protection most probiotics entering the stomach won't survive to reach optimal sites within the gastrointestinal tract. Most probiotic products retain only 4% of these sensitive organisms during passage through the stomach's harsh environment.
The good news: with the patented BIO-tract® protection and time-release delivery, we have increased this number to a remarkable 60%.
The BIO-tract® Difference
When the tablet is moistened by gastric fluids, a gel matrix forms that creates a protective layer, shielding beneficial organisms from stomach acids and directing them to release later in their journey.
Once inside the gastrointestinal tract, probiotics begin to release at consistent levels from the tablet core, delivering a potent percentage of our living organisms throughout the day and throughout your gut, traveling deep into your intestinal tract where they are needed most.
This is the only controlled-release delivery available for probiotics on the market today and is patented in 31 countries (US Patent 8,007,777 and 7,150,623).
BIO-tract® vs. Enteric Coated and Veggie Capsules
Most probiotic supplements are in veggie capsules that offer no protection from a harsh stomach environment, meaning that many of the beneficial organisms do not survive long enough to deliver the full benefit.
Enteric coated probiotic capsules offer some protection from stomach acids with a few drawbacks. Most enteric coatings are made of a synthetic chemical that the capsule is then dipped into. In addition to unwanted added chemicals, the capsule contains air and the coating contains moisture that may be detrimental to the probiotic organisms. You see, freeze-dried probiotic powder is ‘hygroscopic,’ meaning that it seeks out moisture. The beneficial flora will start wicking the moisture away from the air and the coating, which may start killing the living probiotics inside. Essentially, the air inside both veggie capsules and enteric coated capsules can cause the living organisms inside to self-destruct, leading to a far less potent product.
Instead of a coating or a capsule, we tablet our formulas using a patented manufacturing process called LiveBac® and a patented delivery method called BIO-tract®, which provide protection for the beneficial flora while on the shelf (as there is minimal air and moisture) and as the tablet travels through the harsh environment of your stomach acids. Simply put, this leads to greater probiotic delivery to your gut, and potentially greater health benefits for you. Furthermore, BIO-tract® ensures that the active organisms are released slowly over an 8-10 hour period while making the journey through the intestinal tract, successfully bypassing your stomach acids so that they can colonize in your small and large intestine, where you need them.
