Ultra Flora IB is an enhanced potency probiotic formula designed to help relieve bowel irritation and related functional discomforts by promoting a healthy balance of intestinal microflora. Specific, strain-identified beneficial microflora—such as the probiotics Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM and Bifidobacterium lactis found in UltraFlora IB—have been demonstrated clinically effective in relieving these symptoms and improving reported quality of life.
Who would benefit from Ultra Flora IB™?
Health care professionals typically recommend this "good" bacteria supplement for those with occasional, minor intestinal irritation accompanied by abdominal discomfort and bowel distress (cramping, occasional urgent bowel movements, occasional constipation).
How does Ultra Flora IB™ work?
As a nutraceutical, this product is formulated to complement dietary recommendations to promote gastrointestinal and immune health. This formula is designed to encourage growth of beneficial bacteria and support healthy immune function, intestinal integrity, and healthy digestive function. It delivers an ultra concentrated dose of specific, strain-identified beneficial microflora: B. lactis BI-07 and L. acidophilus NCFM®—one of the most extensively tested acidophilus species available. Bifidobacterium is one of the most abundant and perhaps most important types of bacteria in humans.
How does Ultra Flora IB™ compare to other products or approaches?
Not all bacterial strains are suitable for all health purposes. And probiotic formulas should only contain strains of beneficial bacteria. Metagenics probiotic formulas not only provide scientifically identified strains with recognized health benefits, but also a guarantee of potency at the date of expiration (not the date of manufacture like many other product offerings). Ultra Flora IB offers a reliable approach for support for both lower and upper intestinal health with a trustworthy combination of probiotic strains to help relieve minor intestinal irritation. This product delivers our most concentrated dose of these specific beneficial probiotic strains.
How long is Ultra Flora IB™ typically recommended?
This formula was designed for strategic, short-term gastrointestinal and immune health support. Individual results and recommendations may vary based on your specific needs. For best results, follow your health care professional's guidelines.
Why is Ultra Flora IB™ safe?
It contains a blend of natural ingredients with an excellent safety profile. For a higher degree of reliability and predicted safety, Metagenics probiotic formulas contain only identity-verified bacterial strains with established health benefits.
