The trademarked superstrain in up4® Probiotics, Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS®-1, is backed by over 35 years of clinical research in the areas of digestive and immune health and is safe for use as directed.*
That’s because their viable (or live strains) can’t survive stomach acid. All of the probiotic strains we choose, including our superstrain Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS®-1, are naturally resistant to stomach acid and bile. That means they will not only survive the harsh conditions of your stomach, but go on to reach your small and large intestines.*
Taking the probiotics in up4® every day helps maintain a healthy balance of the good and non-beneficial bacteria in your body.* This promotes digestive, immune and overall health.* If you stop taking up4®, your body loses the DDS®-1 advantage in about 1–2 weeks. After you stop taking up4®, diet, occasional stress, travel and even some medications may cause occasional imbalance of the good bacteria and non-beneficial bacteria in the intestinal tract.* That’s why we recommend a daily serving of the probiotics in up4® to help maintain optimal health.*
