I would like to thank you so much for your dairy-free probiotics. I have severe IBS and have been taking Bio-K+® for over two months now and have noticed my IBS improving.
C. difficile outbreak in Ontario, Canada. Bio-K+ can help!
Since May 28th, C. difficile outbreak occurs in 16 hospitals in Ontario. An article from The Toronto Star (july 8th, 2011), mentions that a federally funded scientist says all elderly hospital patients on antibiotics should be given probiotics that have been scientifically proven, specifically Bio-K+, to stop the spread of a superbug now plaguing the Niagara Region.
Dr Karen Madsen said that there is an increasing evidence that probiotics are effective to prevent C. difficile infection. She cited a study published last year in the American Journal of Gastroenterology that showed a 95 per cent drop in the number of patients who contracted Clostridium-difficile after being given two doses of Bio-K+ 50 billion capsules.
