Progressive Perfect Probiotics for Adults +50, 60 Capsules
Your gut changes with age, which means a “one-size-fits-all” probiotic may not be enough. Progressive Perfect Probiotic for Adults 50+ provides the strains that decline with age so you can stay youthful and balanced. It offers twice the amount of Bifidobacterium than our regular adult formulas to help create a more favourable Bifido to Lactobacillus ratio.
- Helps support gastrointestinal health
- Promotes a favourable gut flora
50 Billion CFU (colony forming units)
For optimal protection, your daily intake of 50 billion units is best in divided doses. Take one 25 billion capsule with breakfast and a second with dinner.
Our flora decreases in Bifidobacterium as we age. In addition, our diet, stress and medications often push us even further into Bifidobacterium decline. Perfect Probiotic™ for Adults 50+ contains 60% Bifidobacterium (twice our normal amount) to help protect against that shift.
10 Strains for optimum efficacy
Perfect Probiotic™ for Adults 50+ contains a family of 10 human strain probiotics to promote a favourable gut flora throughout the entire gastrointestinal tract.
Stabilized for long life
Support nutrients, including Silica and Vitamin C, help stabilize and protect the viability of the probiotic strains. In addition, vegetable capsules are used, which have a lower moisture content than gelatin. These methods help ensure that every daily dose contains a full 50 billion probiotic potency, even at time of expiry.
All Human Strain
Perfect Probiotic for Adults 50+ 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
Perfect Probiotic for Adults 50+ 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.
Perfect Probiotic for Adults 50+ 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 HCP®70 Probiotic whenever possible.
HCP®70 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 HCP®70 Probiotic's all natural approach. During a meal our stomach pH increases and becomes more alkaline (between pH3 and pH4.5). The strains in HCP®70 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 HCP®70 Probiotic with food.
