Support a healthy bacterial balance even during periods of gastrointestinal stress with high-potency Probiata Critical Care from Wakunaga. Each vegetarian capsule has 50 billion live cells of 100% pure-strain culture LP229V, a strain of Lactobacillus from human intestinal mucosa. It can survive stomach and bile acid, allowing beneficial probiotics to attach themselves to the intestinal wall to form a barrier against harmful microbes. Studies have shown Probiata to improve the status of intestinal mucosa and also support the gut’s healthy inflammatory response. Taking just one Probiata Critical Care capsule per day fights against the constipation, diarrhea, gas and abdominal bloating that may be caused by stress, antibiotics, poor diet or travel.

For gentler, everyday gut health support, turn to Wakunaga’s Probiata Digestion Support, which has 15 billion live pure-strain culture LP229V cells in each capsule. Other competitor probiotic products often include mixed strains that have not been studied for effectiveness. Taking one per day can help the body maintain healthy bacterial balance in the gut for optimal digestive function. The probiotic balances digestive flora, builds intestinal strength and supports regularity.

“We are delighted to add these two Probiata products to Wakunaga’s family of digestive supplements,” says Jay Levy, director of sales for Wakunaga of America. Critical Care and Digestion Support vegetarian capsules are easy to swallow and come in blister packs that are convenient for travel. Both products are free of dairy, gluten, sugar, artificial colors and flavors, yeast and preservatives and are guaranteed potent until the expiration date on the box.
