The Science Behind the Survivability
Hyperbiotics BIO-tract® Tablets Deliver 15x More Probiotics than Standard Veggie 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.
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.
Hyperbiotics formulas have a guaranteed, extended shelf life with zero refrigeration.

‡ Patented BIO-tract® delivery method consistently delivers as many as 15 times, or more, the number of live, viable probiotic organisms past simulated stomach acids than veggie capsules as demonstrated through in vitro lab testing.
