Each bottle contains 15 capsules with 50 billion probiotic bacteria

  • Helps provide optimal reinforcement to the intestinal flora
  • Each capsule features targeted release technology – with an enterosoluble coating – ensuring that their component bacteria survive their passage through to the intestinal tract (main action site).
  • The capsule is slightly larger than the 12.5 Billion capsule
  • Yellowish-white colour.
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.
Adults:
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.

Antibiotic-associated diarrhea

Antibiotics, mainly the broad-spectrum varieties, not only eliminate bad bacteria (pathogens) that cause infections, but also a significant quantity of the good bacteria found in our intestines.

By reducing the amount of bacteria that help digestion, antibiotic treatments may occasionally cause diarrhea 1, 2, a symptom that may seem trivial to some, but for others could be inconvenient enough to lead them to stop their antibiotic course. In such a case, the infection is no longer treated, which could lead to complications.
