Frequently Asked Questions

Probiotics are live, “good” bacteria that help keep your body healthy. Our body has a balance of “good” and “bad” bacteria. When “bad” bacteria outweigh the “good”, we can feel unwell. In order to restore balance, supplemental “good” bacteria can help. Probiotics help renew the normal friendly bacteria that has been lost – allowing you to feel better while you’re getting better.

An effective probiotic must have the right strains at the right cell count. The human body contains trillions of microorganisms and in order to help that natural “good” bacteria, a probiotic with billions of cells is needed. Not only does the cell count matter, but each “good” bacteria strain has an important purpose:
  • Lactobacillus is active in the digestive, vaginal and urinary tracts and helps to regulate a healthy pH
  • Bifidobacterium is active in the small intestine and helps to protect the lining of the gut
Florajen Probiotics were founded by bacteriologists over 25 years ago with the intent of creating effective, affordable options to help people avoid the unpleasant side effects of antibiotics.  Florajen is known for having the right strains at the right cell counts and maintaining a Cold Chain Commitment™, keeping our probiotics refrigerated, fresh and potent from manufacture to delivery. Available at the pharmacy counter, all of our 30 counts retail under $20.

Many people take Florajen every day, while others take Florajen whenever they feel their digestive system needs a boost. Two main reasons you should take Florajen Probiotics are for antibiotic side effects and maintaining everyday health.

Antibiotics don’t discriminate between good and bad bacteria, they kill both, and disrupt the natural intestinal and vaginal microbial balance. Florajen Probiotics help restore the good flora and maintain the natural microbial balance the body needs to stay healthy.

Florajen Probiotics are also helpful for maintaining everyday health. Your body needs to be continually balanced and nurtured, and Florajen helps your body maintain an internal microbial balance, particularly in your digestive and vaginal tracts.

The bacteria within Florajen Probiotics are all studied and proven to be both stomach acid resistant and bile tolerant.

Florajen Women and Florajen Acidophilus are both safe and effective probiotics that offer potency and consistency to you.  Florajen Acidophilus continues to be an excellent choice for immune, digestive, vaginal and urinary health.

Florajen Women was developed in response to overwhelming request for a women’s health focused probiotic.  This formulation was studied specifically on it’s ability to help maintain and restore vaginal flora and pH.

Traveling usually means being off of your normal routine, eating different foods, and maybe at different times, which often leads to irregularity or uncomfortable digestive issues.  Florajen Probiotics are helpful for maintaining everyday health. Your body needs to be continually balanced and nurtured, and Florajen helps your body maintain an internal microbial balance.
Probiotics are live bacteria, and when left unrefrigerated the cells naturally die off at a faster rate. Florajen maintains a Cold Chain Commitment™ meaning that from the time our probiotics are manufactured, delivered to the pharmacy, and placed in your hands, Florajen is kept cold. This allows the cell counts within Florajen Probiotics to remain as potent and consistent as possible through the expiration date. Florajen should be refrigerated for maximum freshness and potency. It can be stored at room temperature for up to two weeks and still maintain effectiveness.

Some GI discomfort can occur when taking probiotics. These symptoms should be transient in nature and resolve within 2 weeks. Please consult a healthcare professional if symptoms worsen or persist.
Florajen Probiotics contain high cell counts to deliver a level of potency with real and significant health benefits. In fact, one capsule of Florajen is equivalent to 10+ cups of yogurt.
