Why Intelligent Labs Live Cultures are different?
We don’t just manufacture live cultures at 50 billion CFU per capsule, we guarantee our capsules will stay at a minimum of 50 billion CFU for their entire lifespan. We can do this because we use:
- Active Packaging Technology
- Delayed Release Veggie Capsules
- Add Fibre
- Specially Selected, Patented Live Culture Strains
Active Packaging Technology
Live cultures will degrade whenever they are exposed to moisture and oxygen. This means that most brands of cultures are significantly weaker by the time you take them, compared to when they were manufactured. We control the exposure of our live cultures to moisture and water by using a uniquely engineered Activ-Polymer™ bottle which features an impenetrable desiccant sleeve wrapped around the cultures so they are virtually moisture free.
We also use an Oxyfree® desiccant to absorb any oxygen and remove any residual moisture from inside the bottle, meaning we can reduce oxygen levels to 0.01% for the entire lifespan of the product.
Delayed Release Veggie Capsules
Each Intelligent Labs Women’s Live Culture capsule contains the non-digestible fibres, Sunfiber® & FOS.
Specially Selected, Patented Acid and Bile Resistant Live Culture Strains
THE OTHER INGREDIENTS IN EACH CAPSULE
Sunfiber® is a tasteless and odourless fibre without the excess gas, bloating and loose stools usually associated with a fibre supplement.
Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) also sometimes called oligofructose or oligofructan, are aften used as an alternative to sweetener and is produced from inulin.
We make our capsules out of vegetable cellulose to ensure they are vegan friendly. The cellulose also causes a delayed release, spreading the bacteria release out over the entire day.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS.
Some live culture supplements are cheap, whilst others are expensive. How do I know which supplement offers the best value for money?
They key is looking at the strength or Colony Forming Unit’s (CFU) or strength. It’s also important to understand how many of those CFU’s will still be alive in the capsule by the time you take it. We over-manufacture our live cultures and use Active Packaging Technology and fibre to ensure the strength that is on the bottle is the strength you get in your gut.
Many other manufacturers will offer live cultures that will be significantly less in number by the time you take them, than when they are manufactured.
Will I experience gas, bloating or diarrhoea?
It’s quite a common side effect to get gas, bloating or diarrhoea in the first few days after you start taking live cultures. However, its nothing to worry about and usually passes in a few days.
Does it contain Soy, Dairy, Wheat, Egg, Animal derivatives?
No our Live Cultures contain no Soy, no Wheat, no Eggs, no Animal Derivatives no Yeast, no Salt, no Sugar, no Artificial Flavors or Preservatives and are Non Dairy Live Cultures.
I am on Anti-biotics, should I take live cultures?
Yes, you can take live cultures with Antibiotics. We recommend to take your live cultures and antibiotics at least 2 hours apart to reduce the possibility of the antibiotic killing the live cultures.
When is the best time to take Live Cultures?
We generally recommend with a meal, ideally breakfast in the morning.
