  • Enhance detoxification
  • Help control inflammation in the body
  • Improve the strength and function of the intestinal lining
  • Maintain regularity and health of the bowel
  • Produce digestive enzymes and aid in mineral absorption

That supplement is a probiotic. Probiotics are the friendly bacteria that live in our bodies. In fact, there are more bacteria in your body right now, than there have ever been human beings on the planet! The bacteria outnumber human cells 10 to 1, (about 100 trillion bacteria). That is staggering to think about and when you understand the vital role they play in many functions within the body, you realize how important it is to supplement with probiotics every single day.


If you think yogurt is enough, think again. You would need to eat at least 10 canisters of yogurt daily to obtain the amount of beneficial probiotics in a single dose of Ultimate Flora Kids Probiotic. It is a delicious chewable probiotic for kids. Each tablet contains 10 billion beneficial bacteria from 9 strains. They can help to support your child’s digestion, ease constipation and/or diarrhea and boost immunity. The simple addition of a daily probiotic is one way to ensure a healthy gut and a healthy child!

Supplementing with Probiotics, Why Yogurt is NOT Enough

By Caroline Farquhar RHN, BA, EMP

Unless you live under a rock, you have likely heard about probiotics. They are popping up everywhere and for good reason. Research shows that friendly bacteria play a vital role in the digestive system by alleviating constipation, diarrhea and inflammatory bowel conditions; controlling the overgrowth of harmful bacteria and fungus; improving respiratory and allergy responses; supporting the immune system; manufacturing vitamins; protecting against pathogens; enhancing detoxification and much more.

Inside each of us lives about 100 trillion bacteria, most of which reside in the gut. This is 10 TIMES the number of human cells in our body! More and more research is showing the link between a healthy gut, strong immunity and even mental health.

Since the healthy bacteria in our gut is destroyed by many factors such as medications, stress, age, hormonal changes, poor diet and nutrient deficiencies, it is important to supplement. But is yogurt enough? You would need to eat at least 50 servings of yogurt a day to get the same amount of beneficial probiotics as you would in a single dose of Ultimate Flora Critical Care.


Ultimate Flora Critical Care has 50 billion friendly bacteria per capsule. It is comprised of 10 different strains that are prevalent in our digestive tracts and the capsules are enteric coated to protect the probiotics through the harsh environment of the stomach, so they get to where they need to go. It is a much easier and more economical way to ensure you are getting the good bacteria your body needs each day.

Taking care of your digestive health is one of the most profound things you can do for your overall health. You take a multivitamin every day to fill the holes in your diet; think of probiotics as a multivitamin for your gut!
