Bio-K+ Probiotic Review
Yogurt isn’t the only way to get your probiotics. In fact, there’s another way for you to get 100% probiotic bacteria AND has a shelf life three times longer than your average yogurt. That probiotic is Bio-K+!
Bio-K+ is a probiotic made of 100% patented probiotic bacteria: L. acidophilus CL1285 and L. casei LBC80R. These are live bacteria with billions good bacteria per bottle! That’s one thing I always check for when I’m shopping for probiotics. I want to know if they are live and how many there are in each bottle. I always look for ones with large amounts like Bio-K+.
I’ve been taking probiotics on and off for the past six years. I started taking them after having a series of yeast infections and my naturopath recommended them for me. I guess my flora was all messed up and needed to brought back into balance again.
Probiotics have other benefits as well like:
- Improving digestive health
- Strengthen immune system
- Balances your intestinal flora
This is my first time trying Bio-K+ and it’s been going great. The are available at my local Atlantic Superstore so I don’t have to make a special trip to health store to buy them. There’s a store locator on their site so you can see where you can buy them in your local area.
I prefer the capsule form of Bio-K+, although it does come in drink format. There are three different types of capsules depending on what your needs are:
- Regular (12.5 billion bacteria): Maintains balance
- Strong (25 billion bacteria): Strengthens natural defenses
- Extra-Strong (50 billion bacteria): Protects against harmful micro-organisms
I’m taking the Regular formula. However, if I had to take antibiotics, I would likely switch to the Extra-Strong formula to try to prevent myself from getting a yeast infection.
Bio-K+ have published clinical studies on efficacy and are recommended by many health professionals both in the US & Canada. I’ll likely end up continue taking them because they’ve been doing a great job so far!
