The Science Behind the Superiority Studies show that without protection most probiotics entering the stomach won't survive to reach optimal sites within the gastrointestinal tract. Most powders, liquids, capsules and even cultured dairy products retain only 4% of these sensitive organisms during passage through the stomach's harsh environment. The good news: with the patented BIO-tract protection and time-release technology, we have increased this number to a remarkable 60%.
The BIO-tract Difference When the pearl capsule is moistened by fluids in the stomach, the patented gel matrix creates a protective layer, shielding beneficial organisms from stomach acids and directing them to release later in their journey.
Once inside the gastrointestinal tract, probiotics begin to release at consistent levels from the pearl core, delivering a potent percentage of our living organisms throughout the day and throughout your gut, traveling deep into your intestinal tract where they are needed most. This is the only controlled-release technology available for probiotics on the market today and is patented in 31 countries.
