This product provides a high concentration of probiotics (15 billion per capsule) to support intestinal health as well as Prunella to address the mucus and/or hemorrhoid issues of an irritable bowel. Probiotics are "friendly bacteria" naturally present in our intestinal tract. Their primary role is to support digestion and regularity as well as prevent pathogens from invading the intestinal tract. These living microorganisms are one of the body's primary natural defenses. Prunella is the fruit of a shrub commonly known as Blackthorn due to its pointed thorn like spur shoots and very dark bark. Its fruits produce an astringent effect, meaning that they reduce the production of intestinal mucus and help control diarrhea.
Directions: Adults take 2 capsules daily. For use during an antibiotic treatment: Take at least 2-3 hours before or after taking antibiotics.
