Natural Power to Maintain Healthy Digestion & Immunity.
Bio-Kult is a unique multi-species, multi-strain live bacterial supplement containing 14 probiotic strains for everyday use. Each human being hosts hundreds of different bacterial strains in their gut and each strain has unique properties and health benefits. All of the strains in Bio-Kult probiotics have been shown to work synergistically to promote health and healing.
The probiotic strains in Bio-Kult are cryoprotected during the freeze drying process, which gives two main benefits:
- They are protected from the harsh acid environment of the stomach and are therefore able to colonize the full length of the gastrointestinal tract.
- The process allows Bio-Kult to be stored at room temperature without the need for refrigeration.
The result is a naturally powerful advanced probiotic that is guaranteed to maintain potency for the duration of the shelf life.
Bio-Kult probiotics can be used on a continuous basis or for a short period of time, e.g. when taking antibiotics or traveling. These multi-strain probiotic supplements have also been shown to improve intestinal permeability and reduce inflammation in sufferers of leaky gut syndrome.
Bio-Kult may contain traces of non-GMO soy and milk as these items are used in the growth media of the strains. Traces of milk are at a level that would not affect lactose intolerance sufferers. See the FAQs for more information.
Bio-Kult contains the following strains at a minimum of 2 billion probiotic microorganisms per capsule:
Bacillus subtilis, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium breve, Bifidobacterium infantis, Bifidobacterium longum, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus delbrueckii ssp. bulgaricus, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Lactobacillus helveticus, Lactobacillus salivarius, Lactococcus lactis ssp. lactis, Streptococcus thermophilus.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is the recommended serving size for general use?
A. 1-2 capsules once or twice daily with food. If taking two or more capsules daily, you may wish to split the dose. Bio-Kult capsules can be pulled apart and the contents sprinkled onto food, mixed in a drink or swallowed whole.
Q. What is the recommended serving size if I am taking antibiotics?
A. Take 4 capsules daily, ideally at a different time of the day from the antibiotics. Continue taking for at least 2 weeks after completion of the antibiotic course.
Q. What is the recommended serving size if I am traveling?
A. 2 weeks before travel, follow the guidelines for general use. During travel, take 4 capsules daily. Continue to take for at least 2 weeks following the end of travel.
Q. How should I store Bio-Kult?
A. Store in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight. Can be stored at room temperature without the need for refrigeration. Total viable count is guaranteed to the end of the 2-year shelf-life.
Q. Does Bio-Kult contain milk or soy?
A. Each of the specific live bacteria strains need various nutrition sources to aid in their growth in culture. Cow's milk and soy are used in the fermentation process and also in the protective coating used on the strains before freeze drying to enhance stability. Although they go through a filtration process a number of times, small traces of milk proteins (casein and beta lacto globulin) have been detected in Bio-Kult, making it unsuitable for those with severe dairy allergies. Only Non-GMO ingredients are used.
Q. Is Bio-Kult suitable if I am lactose-intolerant?
A. The level of milk proteins in Bio-Kult is so low that it is typically not an issue for those with lactose intolerance. BioTests have shown that many of the probiotic strains also produce lactase, the enzyme necessary to breakdown lactose. The products are, therefore, suitable for those with a lactose intolerance.
This is a great mild probiotic and seems to be working very well. I have taken other brands of probiotic in the past and experienced pain, bloating, urgency, etc. I am happy to report these symptoms have not occurred with Bio-Kult and I will continue to take them.
