Goodbio Products

The best effects for our product occur when one capsule is taken per day.

Our GoodBio Adult and Women’s capsules are delayed-release, which allows more of the 50 billion CFU's to survive stomach acid, bile, and oxidation.

GoodBio Women's Probiotic contains Lactobacillus Jensenii, which is not present in our Adult Probiotic. This strain is particular to the lower reproductive tract in healthy women and makes up 23% of vaginal microflora that is naturally occurring in the body.

While we do recommend our Children’s Probiotic tablet to be chewed, they can be crushed and put into food.

Ages 4 and up.

Ours is a naturally occurring strain.

Yes, all GoodBio Probiotics are vegetarian.

Yes, all GoodBio Probiotics are dairy-free.

No.

No, each product is free of dairy, eggs, wheat, soy, shellfish, nuts and gluten.

Prebiotic

A prebiotic is a special type of plant fiber that selectively nourishes the good bacteria
in the gut which, in turn, produces many health benefits

Taking a prebiotic you nourish beneficial gut bacteria and can improve your health.

Without enough prebiotic fiber, the “bad” bacteria may take over the digestive system and cause dysbiosis symptoms like constipation, diarrhea, and other digestive distress. 

Prebiotics have no known interactions with medications. However, you should always check with your physician about the impact of any supplement.

The best time to take prebiotics and probiotics is regularly. Both can be taken at the same time, daily. We recommend taking them at the same time each day in order to establish a healthy routine. Your gut microbiome will be grateful!

When prebiotics are fermented, they produce short-chain fatty acids like butyrate that help keep the colon healthy, maintain blood sugar balance, and even affect brain neuroplasticity.

Probiotic

Probiotics are live microorganisms intended to provide health benefits when consumed, generally by improving or restoring the gut flora.

Yes, probiotics are described by their genus (e.g., Lactobacillus), their species (e.g.,rhamnosus) and their strain (e.g., GG). This degree of specificity in describing a probiotic is essential since functions can be strain-specific. For example, Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG may have different effects from L. rhamnosus GR-1. The strongest recommendation is for probiotics that are supported by strain-specific research.

Our strains have a very high stability. GoodBio Probiotics do not need to be refrigerated to retain their efficacy.

Live cultures are microbes associated with foods, often as food fermentation agents. Many of these have not been directly tested for health benefits. Probiotics are live microbes that have been shown to have a health effect. Also, some probiotics are microbes that would not typically be associated with foods (such as E. coli), and as such would not typically be referred to as “live cultures.”

The important consideration is that you are getting high enough numbers of a strain or combination of strains that have been tested for efficacy and works for you. Supplements can be more convenient for some people and may provide higher levels of probiotic.

The dose must be based on studies which show an effect.

Over 90% of all probiotics in your body live in your small intestine, large intestine and colon. Since most of our digestive processes take place in our intestines and colon, it makes sense that probiotics strongly affect our digestion. Very recent research has shown that a lack of probiotics in the intestines also strongly contributes to intestinal permeability (aka. leaky gut), IBS, etc. improve intestinal barrier function (heal leaky gut).
