SymBiotics with FOS Powder by Nutricology
SymBiotics with FOS puts the probiotics all together in one convenient powdered formula! Some suppliers claim that the probiotic strains can only work if given one at a time, and that certain single strains have near magical properties. Yet the intestinal micro-ecosystem typically carries up to 400 strains of bacteria. From the point of view of intestinal health, a product that provides bacteria for the different probiotic niches makes a lot more sense. The nine strains in SymBiotics include Lactobacillus acidophilus; L. rhamnosus A and L. rhamnosus B (both more versatile and hardier than L. acidophilus); L. bulgaricus and L. casei (major contributors to fermented foods); and L. sporogenes (Bacillus coagulans), a particularly hardy and antibiotic resistant probiotic strain. Bifidobacterium longum and B. breve, two of the hardier bifidobacteria, are also present in high potency, as is Streptococcus thermophilus. The bifidobacteria thrive on the FOS provided in this formulation, and ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is added as a stabilizer. SymBiotics with FOS provides more than 4 billion viable organisms per serving. Lyophilized (freeze dried).
As a dietary supplement, 1 level teaspoon two or three times daily, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
