Probiotic Pearls 30 caps (136001) and 90 caps (136002)
Probiotic Pearls are a blend of active cultures including Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium for digestive health in an easy to swallow capsule.*
Normal bowel microflora, such as Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria species, support digestive health.*
However, everyday factors such as poor diet, stress, and travel can disrupt the healthy balance of bacteria in your digestive tract. Probiotic Pearls were developed to help support digestive balance and colon and immune health.*
WITH TRIPLE-LAYER TRUE DELIVERY™ TECHNOLOGY
Probiotic Pearls use True Delivery™ Technology, an advanced triple-layer coating system that protects probiotics from heat, air, moisture and stomach acid to maximize survival and delivery to the intestine where they are needed most. The unique encapsulation also ensures Probiotic Pearls are shelf-stable and require no refrigeration, while maintaining full potency through the product’s shelf life.

A. Acidophilus Pearls™ provides Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium longum, two probiotic bacteria with the greatest amount of research and clinical support. In fact, over 75 years of published research has shown that beneficial bacteria in general, (and Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium longum in particular) are the most effective in maintaining a healthy balance of intestinal flora every day.*
A. The gelatin in Probiotic Pearls™ is derived from fish (tilapia).
A. Recent research on probiotics has suggested that many people can take daily dosages in amounts far in excess of the 1 billion CFU per day delivered by Probiotic Pearls™. While the optimal daily dose is unknown and may vary from person to person, studies have looked at doses as high as 100-200 billion cfu/day. It is always a good idea to confer with your health care professional when deciding what daily dose of probiotics may be optimal for you.
A. Take them with meals, between meals, or whenever it is easiest for you to remember.
A. Integrative Therapeutics is committed to stewardship and sustainability in the service of positive social and environmental outcomes. The fact that Enzymatic Therapy does not purchase wild harvest and strives to cultivate sustainable vendor relationships are two examples of this commitment. We have and continue to implement procedures company-wide to improve our efficiency and in turn, reduce our carbon footprint. Palm oil is an important ingredient in Probiotic Pearls™ and plays an crucial role in the True Delivery™ Technology. Put in perspective, the amount of palm oil found in Probiotic Pearls™ is very small – far less than the amount found in one commercially manufactured cookie. The level is insignificant and when compared to other uses of palm oil, doesn’t have a substantial impact on the palm oil supply and subsequently on deforestation.
A. Individuals with fish allergies should not take Pearls™ products with gelatin from Tilapia.
A. Yes, clinical research has confirmed that probiotic cultures, like those present in Pearls, with the exception of Pearls Immune, can be safely taken by pregnant and nursing women.†1-3 There are no ingredients in the formula that pose a safety risk to women or the developing fetus. Pearls Immune has added lactoferrin, which has not been studied for use by pregnant or nursing women. References: 1. Kaplas N, Isolauri E, Lampi AM, Ojala T, Laitinen K.
