OptiBiotic 22 is a uniquely formulated probiotic designed to deliver seven proven, active probiotic strains. These strains were chosen for their ability to adhere to the intestinal tract while surviving the GI environment. for superior results. Our GI tracts are finely balanced environments containing approximately 500 different strains of bacteria that compete for space and nutrients. When there is a healthy balance of these bacteria (eubiosis), we experience few symptoms, if any. But when this environment experiences an overabundance of potentially harmful bacteria (dysbiosis) can occur and is associated with disease and discomfort. OptiBiotic 22 utilizes advanced encapsulation technology, known as BioShield® to preserve the probiotic organisms for targeted release and optimal benefits.
