ProGood 30 Billion Premium Probiotics + Prebiotics (formerly called EntraLIVE Maximal) is a premium pre-biotics and pro-probiotic formula with scientific studies and research backing it. Formulated by microbiologist John Ellerman, it is based on 8 years of research that also involes researchers from The University of NSW and the CSIRO.
ProGood contains a selection of the best possible probiotic cultures, including Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium lactis. The prebiotics (which are food for the probiotic cultures to allow them to successfully grow in the gut) include Arabinogalactan and Inulin from the Jerusalem Artichoke. These can both resist digestion and significantly multiply the probiotic cultures in your intestinal tract.
The thing that makes this a unique formula is the indepth research in to the specific strains of probiotic and the specific type and quantity of the prebiotic in the formula that have been matched and tested by scientific researchers over a period of 8 years, including scientists from the CSIRO. It is the first of its kind that we've found that's shelf stable and packaged in such a way to extend its shelf life out of the fridge for such a long time (up to a year). The way this is done is by splitting the ingredients for each dose in to two different sachets. This makes the sachets ideal for travelling, sending overseas or under any conditions where prolonged periods of room temperature are needed.
This version of ProGood contains 30 billion Lactobacillus acidophilus LAFTI strain L10 and Bifidobacterium lactis LAFTI strain B94 per serving. These strains have been selected based on scientific research that showed these strains were the best of around 50 strains of commercially available probiotic strains tested, suppressing the growth of harmful E. coli bacteria. Some alternative strains that are sold as probiotics were also tested (including some alternate Lactobacillus acidophilus strains), and shown to actually promote the growth of harmful E. coli, proving that when it comes to probiotics, they are certainly not all created equal.
ProGood has been formulated for individuals that have sensitivity reactions* to ingredients commonly used in foods. It contains cultures, trehalose and the prebiotic fibre ingredients arabinogalactan (from the Larch tree*) and inulin (from Jerusalem artichokes). It is free of all flavourings and preservatives.
*Note: Almost all probiotic cultures available on the market today (including those in ProGood) contain traces of milk proteins reflecting the medium on which they were grown. These are mostly removed during the concentration of the cells and the levels are insignificant to all but a small minority of highly sensitive individuals who are anaphylactic for dairy. The arabinogalactan is not suitable for individuals with an allergy to pine trees.
Unlike any other shelf stable pro-biotic we have seen on the market, each dose is packed in to two separate sachets that are mixed together as you take it. The separation of the good bacteria from other more moist ingredients in the formula keeps it viable for up to 3 years from manufacture. While this is a shelf stable product, it is best kept in the fridge or freezer until use to get the full shelf life advertised on the packaging. When out of the fridge, the shelf life is shortened by approx 2/3rds. Your product is kept in the fridge in our warehouse and only spent 24 hours in transit to our facility + the time it look to ship to you. It is perfectly safe for you to travel with for weeks on end without keeping it in the fridge. Simply adjust the used by date accordingly.
