Multiple mechanisms of action are believed to be responsible for the benefits of supplemental probiotics. Some are believed to secrete beneficial substances. Some have the ability to adhere to the intestinal walls, preventing attachment and residence of less-friendly microorganisms. Immune benefits are partially attributed to stimulation of Immunoglobulin A. Benevolent microbes also participate in the decomposition of fecal matter, contributing to nutrient absorption and producing vitamins B, D and K as metabolic byproducts(1).
Probiotic Eleven™ represents a unique combination of healthful probiotics to help replenish a depleted supply. These microorganisms provide essential functions in the body and are easily destroyed or harmed by aging, adverse intestinal pH, microbial interactions, environmental and dietary temperatures, stress, physiologic factors, peristalsis, bile acids, host secretions, immune responses and antibiotic therapy.
Probiotic Eleven™ provides 11 species of live microorganisms that exert many beneficial health effects. Among other things, they support digestion, promote immunity and aid in the elimination of toxins and relief of occasional bloating, gas, sour stomach and constipation. Probiotics also help regulate intestinal functions and can greatly improve colon distress. This specially formulated blend contains strains of important gut-beneficial organisms and prebiotics (non-digestible foodstuffs including fiber) that serve as food for the probiotics in the colon.
Over 200 clinical studies have proven the ability of short and long-chain fructooligosaccharides (FOS) to improve growth of friendly bacteria, enhance mineral absorption, soothe an irritable bowel and increase resistance to harmful bacteria.
Ingredients include deleted strains of Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium infantis, Bifidobacterium longum, Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Lactobacillus brevis, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Lactobacillus salivarius, Streptococcus thermophilus, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus caseii and inulin.
This product is recommended for individuals who regularly experience sluggish bowel or diarrhea, yeast overgrowth and other minor concerns of the gastrointestinal tract. It is also recommended after colon cleansing.
L. plantarum, L. salivarius, S. thermophilus and L. acidophilus have demonstrated the ability to break down lactose, the milk sugar responsible for lactose-intolerance. L. salivarius has demonstrated marked digestive support for the stomach. L. bulgaricus and L. plantarumare associated with immune activities.
You can also make your own yogurt with Probiotic Eleven. It will thicken milk to make a natural yogurt that is full of live culture. Just add 8-10 capsules to a quart of warm milk (organic is best and regular milk often contains anti-biotics). It takes 4-6 hours to thicken and you need to keep it warm. To have a thicker finished product, add 1/3 cup of dry milk to the warm milk. You can use about 1/2 cup of the yogurt you made as a culture to start another quart of milk.*

Other Ingredients: FOS (short and long chain), kosher gelatin, and water. FOS (short and long chain) is a blend of dietary fiber (prebiotic) that promotes the growth of friendly bacteria. Cultures are freeze-dried to preserve viability, and designed to populate the intestinal tract. This probiotic supplement provides living organisms to optimize the repopulation of beneficial bacteria in the intestinal tract. It’s prebiotic blend ensures optimal viability of these organisms in the digestive tract.
