Acidophilus Probiotics supplement, Bio-Culture complements the friendly bacteria in your stomach to aid digestion. Each Pharma Nord Bio-Culture capsule contains 4 billion live bacteria, protected within a stomach resistant gel. Many probiotic products are unable to deliver viable bacteria to the small intestine because the bacteria are killed off by stomach acid before reaching their destination. Bio Culture capsules feature a special gel matrix that is formed in the stomach once the capsule dissolves. The matrix contains the bacteria in a safe, acid-resistant environment and does not release them until they have reached the small intestine – the point of absorption.

Ever get that awful 'holiday tummy' when travelling abroad? Help maintain your body's natural intestinal flora with Bio-Culture, Pharma Nord's Acidophilus Probiotics.

Why Pharma Nord Bio-Culture:

  • Manufactured to pharmaceutical standards.
  • Each capsule contains 4 billion live bacteria.
  • MSG Free (mono-sodium glutamate).
  • Gluten Free.
  • Ideal for travelling (stable at room temperature).

What are Probiotics?

Probiotics are dietary supplements containing living microrganisms that help maintain healthy functioning of the gastrointestinal tract, altering the balance of intestinal bacterial flora in favour of beneficial organisms. The best-studied probiotics are the lactic acid bacterial strains Lactobacillus acidophilus (preferentially colonizing the small intestine) and Bifidobacterium lactis (preferentially colonizing the large intestine), which are components of the natural intestinal flora.

Pharma Nord's Acidophilus Probiotics, Bio Culture contains both Lactobacilus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium lactis.

What do Probiotics do?

Supplementation with Bio-Culture increases the number of 'friendly' bacteria which then competes with the 'bad' bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract for nutrients, space and oxygen. These friendly bacteria also produce chemical substances that inhibit the growth of bad bacteria, helping to maintain a healthy immune function.

How much should you take?

Pharma Nord recommends 1 capsule 3 times per day, or as directed by a physician.

Suitable for vegetarians.

Nutrient Reference Values
No nutrient reference value. Levels of naturally occurring probiotic lactic acid bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract decrease with age and are reduced following the intake of alcohol and certain medicines.

I can't go without these! I get bloated very easily after meals and it stops when I take these. The tube is handy for keeping my other vitamins with me too.

P Hudson, County Durham | 24/08/2011

After a long stint on antibiotics, I was recommended bio-culture to help restore the healthy bacteria in my gut.

These capsules are designed to survive until they reach your intestine for maximum effect. I've been taking 2 per day and have felt less discomfort.

I don't want to eat probiotic yoghurts due to the fat and sugar, so the culture is perfect!
