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 maintain 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 maintain and regulate a healthy state.
  • Bifidobacterium is active in the small intestine and helps to protect the lining of the gut.

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