Q. What does probiotic culture count mean? Is more better?
A. Probiotic culture count refers to the total live bacterial Colony Forming Units (CFU) count per dosage unit (e.g. tablet , capsule) of a probiotic product. Depending on the probiotic product, the culture count can be in the millions or even in the billions. But more is not necessarily better. Probiotic products can be formulated using different probiotic strains and culture counts, have different dosing instructions and conditions of use. Therefore it is important to always read the product label before use.
Multibionta’s probiotic culture count is 1x107 CFU and this claimed amount has been clinically proven to be safe and effective. Also, Multibionta uses a special manufacturing process which prepares and preserves its probiotic cultures. Finally, each caplet has a special film-coating that protects the probiotics to ensure high survival through the stomach and gastric juices.
