Keep Your Family Healthy on Vacation this Summer with Good Bacteria!

We all look forward to vacation, a time of family fun and a break from the daily grind.  As we load up our car with clothes, food, games and such, we also need to make sure we take supplies of sunscreen, ointments, bug sprays and vitamins.  But, is that enough to protect our family?  Whether it’s from bug bites, too much sun or food we’re not accustomed to, our intestinal health needs to be protected.  If it’s not working well, we can experience stomach problems, diarrhea etc.  That’s why we need clinically-proven probiotics before and during travel to ensure our families’ health.

But, there’s still confusion about what to look for when choosing probiotics.  Experts agree that the proprieties and performance of a probiotic product are directly related to the strain of bacteria, and not all probiotic strains work alike.  For example, in Bio-K+ the strains are L. acidophilus CL1285 and L. Casei LBC80R and this combination has been proven to be effective in published clinical trials available on Bio-K+’s website.  Also, it’s important to note that a probiotic is defined by its genus, species, and strain; however, probiotics within the same genus or even species do not necessarily provide the same benefits. It is the specificity of strains that differentiate probiotics from having potentially therapeutic effects, or even harmful effects. The strain is a combination of letters and numbers identified after the genus and species.  In the case of Bio-K+ probiotics, the product label will read:  L. (Lactobacillus) acidophilus CL1285.  

All Bio-K+ probiotics are supported by clinical studies to ensure that they perform the way they should.  Each probiotic capsule has an enteric coating to protect it from gastric acids in the stomach so it can get to work in the intestines. Bio-K+ supplements come in capsules containing 12.5, 25 and 50 billion bacteria each and the Bio-K+ bottle of dairy culture contains 50 billion friendly bacteria.  Bio-K+ is also certified gluten-free and is offered in a range of fermented substrates such as dairy, soy and organic rice. It also has convenient supplements for individuals with Celiac disease as well as those who follow a dairy-free, soy-free or sugar-free diet. All Bio-K+ CL1285® products can safely be taken daily, for prolonged periods.

Bio-K+ International specializes in the production, marketing and distribution of 100% probiotic products devoted to promoting health and ensuring quality of life.  The company distributes its products in natural food stores, pharmacies, and supermarkets across North America.
