Bio-Kult Probiotics is an award winning formula developed by a team of respected nutritional specialists. It’s also very popular and has received many positive reviews. Here is a summary of pros and cons of buying Bio-Kult probiotics:
Many satisfied costumers report good results with Bio-Kult. What are the reviews saying? That Bio-Kult improves the digestive tract, lessens constipation, IBS, and lowers inflammations. Some say they use Bio-Kult to prepare fermented milk products which I find curious. The 14 probiotic bacteria strains is a nice feature as the gut loves diversity (list below).
The recommended dose is 1-2 capsules once or twice daily. Let your individual needs determine how you take. Increasing the dose is good when on antibiotics, travelling, or when fighting an infection. A package with 120 capsules cost around $35. If the capsules feel to large, try emptying the in a glass of juice or water.
Is it worth trying?
Absolutely. It has a great variety of probiotic bacteria and can be used by the entire family for a wide range of digestive problems. Many satisfied customers indicate that it works well.
Bio-Kult Probiotics series
They offer several different probiotic supplements aimed at specific needs. Here’s a summary of some of them. Most of these supplements are also Amazon Choices.
Bio-Kult Boosted. Contains eight billion CFU which I think is better for an adult with gut issues than the standard two billion. It includes vitamin B12. However, I think it’s too expensive. If you want more bacteria at a lower price, check Now Foods Probiotic-10.
Bio-Kult Candéa. Contains garlic and grapefruit seed extract that strengthens and widens the effect of the probiotic bacteria. Many customer reviews claim it works well for yeast overgrowth. It contains seven bacteria strains (1 billion CFU per capsule). The capsules can be pulled apart and the powder used on food or in drinks.
It contains the following:
- Garlic (60mg) for Candida and other harmful microorganisms
