    Natren - Gastro-pH Strawberry - 90 Wafers

    Natren Gastro-pH Strawberry contains exclusively Lactobacillus bulgaricus LB-51 super strain, 1 billion cfu per 2 wafers. Lactobacillus bulgaricus LB-51 super strain is the natural microorganism found in selected Bulgarian style yogurt that helps the body digest food more efficiently. Helps to alleviate gas, bloating and upper GI problems. Proper digestion a key to health.

    The Lactobacillus bulgaricus LB-51 super strain in Gastro-pH actually travels along with the food as it's being processed, to naturally aid digestion while deterring harmful bacteria. It maximizes the body's ability to complete the digestion process and may discourage the use of intestinal stimulants and antacids. This beneficial bacteria may help maintain our natural electrolyte balance, particularly as we age and become less active. Lactobacillus bulgaricus produces lactase, the enzyme that breaks down lactose in our digestive tracts, so it is helpful to those who are lactose intolerant. Lactobacillus bulgaricus was named by Dr. Metchnikoff, after the long-lived healthy Bulgarians who consumed this bacteria in their daily diet of Bulgarian yogurt. Gastro-pH is cultured with super strain LB-51 which, according to 30 years of Bulgarian research, is one of the most beneficial strains of the 450 known bulgaricus strains.

    Nutritional Actions:

    • Nutritionally helps to deter yeast overgrowth (candida) from the large intestine up into the small intestine.
    • Helps to stimulate regularity.
    • Aids in lactose metabolism and enhances the digestion of milk products.
    • Encourages an acidic intestinal environment which strongly inhibits less desirable microorganisms.
    • Contributes to the growth and viability of the beneficial resident microorganisms (Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium. bifidum, etc.) by supporting their growth and activity.
    • Helps the body digest complex carbohydrates and proteins. Bulgaricus is very proteolytic, therefore it can easily break down proteins.
    • Helps to increase the bio-availability of minerals, especially calcium. The absorption is doubly important in lactose-intolerant individuals who may also experience a deficiency of dietary calcium.
    • May also produce antimicrobial substances antagonistic to various bad bacteria.

    Natren Frequently Asked Questions
    What are the differences between powdered probiotics and capsules?
    The capsules contain the same freeze-dried probiotics as the powders. The powders allow you to use the amount you desire and are better suited for people who have trouble swallowing capsules. The capsules offer the convenience of a pre-measured dose. Individual preference is the determining factor in selecting which one is right for you.

    Why do the products need to be refrigerated?
    Like all living creatures, probiotics need to be protected from harsh environments. Their life-spans are diminished by heat, light and moisture. Natren products are shipped in dark glass bottles with tin lids to protect them from harmful light and moisture. They are shipped with refrigeration to keep them cool and extend their lives so they have guaranteed potency through the printed expiration date. Without such care and a guarantee, you may be wasting your money.

    How long can probiotics stay un-refrigerated before they lose their potency?
    There is no way to guarantee the potency of probiotics if they have been without refrigeration at any time. When probiotic products are shipped without refrigeration, they can be exposed to very high temperatures. Since probiotics are living organisms, you can be guaranteed of their potency only if they have been shipped and stored refrigerated. Natren products are refrigerated from manufacturing throughout the entire shipping process. This has always been Natren's standard when other companies have misrepresented the potency of their probiotic products by claiming they are shelf-stable; they conveniently don't mention that their products are not stable when exposed to harsh temperatures in the warehouse, shipping and distribution processes. If other companies cannot guarantee potency of each strain through a printed expiry date, how can you trust any of their claims?

    What is the best way to protect probiotic bacteria from stomach acid?
    The powder products are protected with the intrinsic supernatant, part of the original nourishing and protective culture medium, which provides a natural buffer against gastric acid. Micro-enrobing with a unique oil matrix is the best way to protect probiotic bacteria from stomach acid. Natren Trenev Trio is the first to introduce a micro-enrobing, unique delivery system – a hard gel capsule in which three super strains of probiotic bacteria are suspended in sunflower oil and vitamin E to keep the bacteria separate, noncompetitive and protected from gastric digestive juices for optimum absorption. The bacteria strains must be bile-resistant. All Natren probiotics have laboratory-tested bile-resistant strains which will survive bile salts.

    About Natren
    Natren relishes its role as the leader in the probiotic industry. Led by Natasha and Yordan Trenev, the company actively seeks opportunities to inform the public about "friendly bacteria" and change the prevailing perception that all bacteria are bad. "In 1960 and 1970, we were going to food shows introducing people to yogurt. People in the United States and Canada did not know what yogurt was, let alone that it was considered the world's oldest health food. Now yogurt is in every store," Yordan remarks. "We want to do the same with probiotics. We want everyone to know what probiotics are within the next few years." Evidenced by the company's immense growth and its support among healthcare professionals, Natren is making impressive progress toward this goal.

    Suggested Use
    Chew two wafers, before or after meals or during periods of occasional indigestion.* May be taken on an empty stomach. Product removed from refrigerated bottle for daily use should be consumed within 24 hours for maximum potency. Do not give chewable wafers to children under four years of age, to avoid the possibility of choking. There is no known toxic dose, as the wafers are nontoxic at any level, thus they may be taken repeatedly to achieve results.

    Warnings

    Do not freeze or expose to moisture, heat, or direct sunlight. Do not accept if seal is broken. Keep refrigerated and dry to maintain potency guarantee.
