Mercola’s new probiotics formula offers enhanced digestive and immune support

Hoffman Estates, IL (PRNEWSWIRE) April 21, 2016 – Research shows that approximately 80 percent of immune function is located in the digestive tract—meaning good gut health is essential to overall great health. To help people get the beneficial bacteria their gut needs, Mercola has added Complete Probiotics 100 Billion CFU to its line of premium probiotics products.

"There are many reasons that people might want to take a high-potency probiotic,” said Dr. Joseph Mercola, founder of Mercola. “For instance they may have recently taken an antibiotic, they might drink fluoridated water, or they might simply wish their immune function was stronger.”

Featuring 10 powerful probiotic strains including super strain Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS-1, Complete Probiotics 100 Billion CFU provides advanced gut support. Adapting naturally to the human body, it also contains no bioengineered ingredients, and is acid and bile-resistant for maximum product survival and results.

Complete Probiotics 100 Billion CFU can help to:

  • Support digestive and colon health*
  • Produce vitamins B12, folic acid, and vitamin B6*
  • Support cellular health
  • Support cholesterol levels already in a healthy, normal range*
  • Promote normal stools*

Complete Probiotics 100 Billion CFU also uses patented DRcaps™ capsules to help protect the probiotics from stomach acid. These acid-resistant hard capsules are made of a vegetable substance that slows down capsule opening after swallowing—a real plus for the fragile probiotic strains that work best in the intestine.

For optimal potency and results, Complete Probiotics 100 Billion CFU requires refrigeration.
