How long should I take probiotics?

The best way to use LB17 may be to take 2 capsules daily or every other day after the initial regime of establishing the probiotic bacteria strains in their gut.

Are probiotics safe?

LB17 is so safe even babies who are 1 month or older can take it. LB17 will help the child mature and improve his or her immune system.

For a child between 1 month to 1 year, it is suggested that 1/2 a spoon of the biomass or 1 probiotic capsule daily is sufficient, for older children, 2 capsules can be taken.

Taking probiotics when pregnant

Its perfectly safe to take LB17 while pregnant and in fact may be beneficial to both mother and child. It may help the child from usual digestive problems and also from asthmatic symptoms.

When to take probiotics

LB17 probiotic is encapsulated in a soft vegetable gel capsule made of seaweed, this protects the probiotic bacteria from the strong stomach acids to properly deliver the bacterium to the intestines where the bacterium works best.

So when to take probiotic capsules is not an issue they can be taken any time and work effectively.

LB17 probiotic biomass is in paste form and is best taken after food. The stomach acids would be diluted by the food consumed so that the bacterium can survive and also work in the stomach area for those that have digestive health issues in the stomach area such as ulcers.

Do LB17 have to be refrigerated?

Due to the way that LB17 live probiotic is exposed to extremes in temperature (summer and winter) during the fermentation process, the bacteria in LB17 are potent, resilient and are able to stay alive for up to 3 years at room temperature without the need for refrigeration.
