Hyperbiotics Pro-15 is a popular probiotic supplement and a best seller on Amazon.com. It has received much praise from satisfied customers in the past. This is an updated review to check Hyperbiotics manufacturing principles, composition, choice of bacteria, and how the supplement works overall. I also included comments on other supplements in their Pro series.
Hyperbiotics Pro-15 features
Here are the main features:
- Each pill contains 5 billion CFU delivered through a patented delivery system to ensure that bacteria are protected and delivered live through the harsh stomach environment.
- They’ve packed 15 bacteria strains of three major types into a very small pearl.
- Their homepage has a decent amount of information about manufacturing, production, goals and who they are. It all looks reliable.
- They ensure shelf-life stability which might make refrigeration unnecessary.
- The pills are small and easy to swallow.
- Uses time release.
The regular bottle with 60 capsules sells for around $27 which is a bit expensive. This is otherwise a great supplement that seems to cover the needs of many people. However, some might need a stronger supplement with much more bacteria. Hyperbiotics has become a trusted brand, offering a range of good quality products. In addition, many satisfied customers add much trust.
How to take
Take the pills on an empty stomach. Since Hyperbiotics uses a time-release, some prefer taking it in the morning to allow for the bacteria to be released into the gut during the day. However, taking probiotics at any time will most likely bring similar benefits.
The recommended serving is one pill per day. But as with most supplements, adjust the dose according to your gut feeling. Taking 3-7 pills per day would not be a problem. Or try Hyperbiotics Advanced Strength below.
