Whether in tablets, capsules, or liquid form, the method of delivery for your probiotic has little impact on its effectiveness. All that really matters is that the probiotic bacteria are able to make it to your gut alive. Probiotic companies like to brag about how many billions of live cultures their probiotics include in each dose, but they don’t tell you that most of these cultures die before they reach the small intestine unless the probiotic has been properly prepared.
Companies have been trying a wide range of preparation methods to increase survival rates, like freeze-drying and microencapsulation. One preparation method that has been scientifically proven to increase survival rates is the liquid acid coating used in Probonix. It places the probiotics in a resilient state that helps them to survive the harsh environment of the stomach. Watch the video on Truth #3 to find out more!
