What is the outer coating of the Probiotic Pearls™ Immune made of?
The outer coating components are part of the True Delivery™ Technology system, which protects the probiotic bacteria from the harsh stomach acid so that they can be released into the intestines. The coating ingredients, pectin and gelatin, are listed on the label.
Why does Probiotic Pearls™ Immune active cultures contain only 1 billion bacteria? Some other probiotic supplements contain several billion.
Our company offers many different probiotics in different amounts to suit different needs. Probiotic Pearls™ Immune offers 1 billion cfu, the general daily recommendation, in a tiny pearl-shaped capsule. This amount confers health benefits because the probiotics are protected from heat, moisture, and stomach acid so they can arrive intact in the intestines.
What is the color of the Probiotic Pearls™ Immune capsule?
Unlike the original Acidophilus PearlsTM active cultures, the Probiotic Pearls™ Immune capsule is brownish pink in color. Probiotic Pearls™ Immune contains lactoferrin, an iron-binding protein, responsible for the brownish pink color.
Does the lactoferrin in Probiotic Pearls™ Immune contain iron?
Lactoferrin is a powerful immune-enhancing protein, first isolated in milk.† Because of its high affinity for iron, lactoferrin will retain a small amount of iron—very small. For all intents, the highly concentrated brand of lactoferrin found in Probiotic Pearls™ Immune is essentially iron-free.
Does it matter when I take Probiotic Pearls™ Immune?
Take them with meals, between meals, or whenever it is easiest for you to remember.
