Probiotics HCP 150

Critical Support Probiotic

Your intestines are home to trillions of bacteria cells that need your help to stay in balance. HCP150 offers all the health promoting benefits of HCP30 and HCP70, but at a maximum strength potency for times when a more therapeutic dose has been recommended, or when critical support is required on a temporary basis to restore proper gastrointestinal balance.

This Critical Support formula, when taken as directed, provides 150 billion active cells per day. It features 6 human strains that implant healthy flora throughout the entire digestive tract. It has also been cryoprotected and a family of stabilizing support nutrients has been added to help ensure the viability of the flora.

Benefits:

  • Improves intestinal health
  • Supports healthy digestion
  • Aids immune function
  • Increases absorption of vitamins and minerals

Features:

  • Complete GI tract protection
  • 150 billion active cells for those who need greater gastrointestinal support
  • 100% human strain for optimum compatibility with your digestive system
  • All colonizing flora that adhere to the intestinal wall for more lasting results
  • Cryoprotected to help ensure the viability of the flora, all the way to expiry

Suggested Use (Adults)
Consume 1 capsule after breakfast and 1 capsule after dinner for a total of 2 capsules per day. After 6 months of continuous use, you may reduce the dosage to 1 capsule per day with the meal of your choice. Keep refrigerated whenever possible.

High Potency
HCP150 provides 150 billion active cells (per 2 capsules) at time of expiry. Current research has shown that probiotic formulas with more strain variety and higher potencies offer greater activity and overall health benefits.

All Human Strain
HCP150 contains 100% human strains. Human microflora is, by far, the most compatible with your digestive system. It has the ability to colonize and multiply within the gastrointestinal tract whereas other forms (dairy and plant) sometimes fail to stick to the intestinal wall or simply die off after ingestion.

Entire GI Tract Protection
HCP150 is specifically designed to inhabit and protect the entire length of the GI tract. The Lactobacilli (Rhamnosus, Acidophilus and Salivarius) primarily colonize within the small intestine, while the Bifidobacteria (Breve, Bifidum and Longum) are most prevalent within the large intestine. Consideration was also given to ensure oral and vaginal probiotic health.

Optimum Stability:

HCP150 Probiotic is manufactured using a cryoprotective process that ensures the viability of the flora. This cold temperature process removes all the available moisture and microencapsulates the strains for optimum stability. It is further enhanced by the addition of a family of stabilizing support nutrients that contribute to the longevity of the active cells.

Solani Amylum and Silica act as natural desiccants helping to keep the moisture content as low as possible.

Magnesium Stearate (plant source) a natural lubricant that reduces the creation of heat during the encapsulation process which would otherwise damage the sensitive micro flora.

Vitamin C reduces oxidation which preserves and extends the lifespan of the probiotics.

Vegetable Capsules have a lower water activity level than standard gelatin capsules helping to maintain a moisture free environment. While the above measures have a profound impact on the lifespan of the microflora allowing it to withstand room temperature for prolonged periods of time, we still recommend that you refrigerate HCP150 Probiotic whenever possible.

HCP150 Probiotic Is Not Enteric Coated
Some debate exists on whether enteric coating a probiotic supplement will reduce the amount of gastric damage following ingestion. Fermented foods have been acting as our primary source of dietary probiotics for centuries without being enteric coated. As well, enteric coatings typically use a polymer of acrylic acid (a synthetic chemical) which conflicts with HCP150 Probiotic's all natural approach. During a meal our stomach pH increases and becomes more alkaline (between pH3 and pH4.5). The strains in HCP150 Probiotic are acid tolerant and can be exposed to a gastric solution in this range without suffering any bacterial loss, eliminating the need for enteric coating. We simply encourage you to take HCP150 Probiotic with food.
