Bio-K+ Regular, Strong and Extra-Strength capsules are made by freeze-drying the L. acidophilus CL1285 and L. casei LBC80R probiotic strains and then protecting them with an enteric coating. Consumers should bear in mind that probiotics in powdered form do not endure stomach acids and bile salts. They must be encapsulated within an enteric coating that dissolves when the capsule reaches the small intestine and the colon where the pH level is basic rather than acidic1,2.
Bacterial probiotic culture containing the unique and patented formula of L. acidophilus and L. casei
Live bacteria protected by an enteric coating
Safe for children and seniors, provided they are able to swallow the capsule.

Adults and teenagers (aged 12 and up):
Take 1 to 2 capsules per day for optimal intestinal flora support. Capsules may be taken at any time of day.
It is strongly recommended not to open any capsule, as their component probiotic bacteria may be greatly affected by acidity and bile salts during their passage through the gastrointestinal tract, thereby impeding the product’s effectiveness.
To decrease the risk of antibiotic-associated diarrhea, take 2 capsules per day throughout your antibiotic course, as well as for 5 days after the end of your antibiotic treatment. Bio-K+® capsules must be taken at least 2 hours before or after taking the antibiotic dose. This is to prevent the antibiotics from eliminating the probiotic bacteria, not because probiotics interfere with antibiotic medication.
Caution and warning: Should symptoms of digestive upset (e.g. diarrhea) occur, worsen or persist beyond 3 days, discontinue use and consult a health professional.
