UP4 Frequently Asked Questions
GOT A QUESTION ABOUT PROBIOTICS? ASK DR. GREG.
Need help understanding the basics? Dr. Greg, their Chief Scientific Officer, is here to help. Read the questions below to see if they covered your query-otherwise drop him a line at [email protected]
WHAT'S THE NO.1 THING I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PROBIOTICS?
Dr. Greg: To be of benefit, probiotics must be viable (alive) and their potency must be guaranteed on the label for the entire shelf life. That simple!
HOW DO I KNOW WHICH OF UP4'S PROBIOTICS I NEED?
Dr. Greg: Good question. Well I can go into the science, but my advice would be to read through the product info and compare the differences. UP4 has special formulas geared to specific needs, like a Women's product with certified organic cranberry or KIDS CUBES that make it easy for children to enjoy a daily probiotic. UP4 color code their products, too, so you can find them easily once you settle on the product you want.
WHAT'S A CFU/G?
Dr. Greg: It's an industry-wide term. It's the way they measure probiotic potency. The CFU stands for colony-forming units and the "g" means grams.
10 BILLION CFU? 25 BILLION CFU? MORE IS BETTER, RIGHT?
Dr. Greg: Not necessarily. So much depends on you, and the quality of the strain. For kids, I'd say 1 billion CFU/g works great. For the average, healthy adult 5 billion CFU/g. Seniors will want to go to a higher 25 billion CFU/g. I've seen crazy-high CFUs out there. It doesn't necessarily mean they are better, the point is quality-not quantity!
DO I NEED TO REFRIGERATE UP4?
Dr. Greg: You don't need to, but it does help to prolong the product. They're premium products. I like to keep them in the refrigerator. If in doubt apply the hot car rule: Never leave dogs, chocolates or UP4 probiotics in temps above 70° F.
DOES THE POTENCY WEAKEN OVER TIME?
Dr. Greg: Another great question! And one UP4 gets asked a lot. UP4's formulas are designed with premium quality and precision to give you the very-best results from Day One to Day 30 ?(or Day 60 in the case of their two-month supply options). So, I guess the short answer is, no, all their products are guaranteed for label potency at the time of expiration.
WHY DO SOME PROBIOTICS HAVE COATING ON THEM?
Dr. Greg: That's because their viable (or live strains) can't survive stomach acid. UP4's award-winning signature strain Lactobacillus acidophilsus DDS-1 is a rock star in that department—its live strains are naturally resistant to stomach acid and bile.
WHEN DO I TAKE PROBIOTICS? HOW SOON WILL THEY START TO WORK?
Dr. Greg: UP4 recommend taking UP4 first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach. KIDS CUBES are fine any time. You'll start to see results in a few days.
I'M ON ANTIBIOTICS, CAN I TAKE PROBIOTICS? WON'T THEY CANCEL EACH OTHER OUT?
Dr. Greg: Before my science-geek side starts to show, let's just say "anti" biotics kill bacteria and sometimes they take out some of the good guys. "Pro"biotics are there help to supplement that "good" bacteria. I always say, if you're unsure, check with your doctor.
WHY TAKE PROBIOTICS WHEN I CAN GET SOME IN MY YOGURT?
Dr. Greg: Well, you'd have to eat something like 20 containers of regular yogurt a day to get the same daily effects. Or six or seven of the probiotic-touting ones. Plus, there is the additional sugar to think of. But, hey, UP4 loves yogurt and they're not knocking it. It's just that they're not comparing apples to apples.
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
UP4 started life as UAS Laboratories in 1979, founded by Dr. S. K. Dash. UP4's first mission was to share with the world a premium strain of probiotic bacteria called Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS-1. To this day, they're proud to say, their trademarked strain is still unsurpassed in probiotic performance. UP4 soon added more formulas specifically designed for adults, children, women and people with special digestive needs. And, as their product assortment expanded, so did the need to develop new manufacturing technology to ensure their probiotics remain stable and viable (so you get to enjoy the maximum benefits). So, in short, their probiotic experts mastered both the science and the art of producing premium probiotics. And they focus development and production on ONLY probiotics because of the unique needs of manufacturing and maintaining their premium formulas. In fact, today UP4 is tripling their production capacity at their custom-built operation in Wausau, Wisconsin, one of the few dedicated probiotic facilities in the world.
As you can imagine, after so many years leading the charge in the industry, UP4 is dedicated to "pushing the envelope" on probiotic production. It begins with formulation. As experts in the field, the scientists at UAS LifeSciences use only scientifically validated strains that have the innate toughness to withstand distribution and storage at less than optimum temperatures and maintain viability for over 24 months. And it is only these strains that will make it into UAS LifeSciences formulas. Then their product is made. UP4 use a specialized blending technology to ensure the appropriate balance of each probiotic strain. During every step of the way, their quality process assures that the formula remains as originally intended. The blend is then further processed as capsules and powders–all processes that have unique requirements when working with live micro-organisms. Finally, packaging. UP4's operation—both systems and packaging—is designed to deliver to you the most live and effective probiotics they can.
