Prebiotic + ProbioticBioavailability is one of the most important aspects of your supplement quality, which is why we have included prebiotic phages in our probiotic formula. This increases the survivability of probiotics and prevents gas and bloating.
Four Phages and Seven Probiotic Strains
Probiotic Pro is a dairy-free, specialized bacteriophage formulation that combines four types of phages (as the proprietary bacteriophage blend PrePhage™) along with seven strains of beneficial probiotics. We designed this formula to support the proliferation of beneficial bacteria throughout the small and large intestines, to promote GI and immune function.
We use delay-released capsule technology to increase intact delivery to the small intestine by protecting the organisms from stomach acid. Many probiotics are unfortunately killed off before they can travel and disperse in the intestines like they are designed to do. Not with our formulation!
What is a Bacteriophage?
Bacteriophages, or phages, which translates to “eat” or “devour” in Greek, are the most abundant naturally occurring organisms on Earth. We are surrounded by phages in soil, food and drinking water. A single drop of seawater can hold millions of phages and the human body contains billions of them. They prey only on bacteria, never human cells, and bacteria have trouble becoming immune to them. They are a safe and effective way to help reduce specific pathogenic bacterial populations!
We Knew 100 Years Ago…
Bacteriophages were of high interest in 1919 when it was demonstrated that they could be used to treat infectious diseases, but the U.S. lost interest with the advent of antibiotics. Research continued in the former Soviet Union, (just like it did with adaptogens), where bacteriophages are widely used to this day.

Common conditions associated with E. coli:
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Many studies have linked irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) with small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). (Pyleris E, et al. Dig Dis Sci. 2012)
- Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) and other infections of the urinary tract: UTIs are the most common infections caused by E. coli; most often caused by bacteria from the GI tract being spread to the urethra and then traveling from the urinary tract to the bladder. (Srivastava R, et al. J Med Microbiol. 2014)
- Vaginitis: E. coli, which is a normal inhabitant of the rectum, can cause bacterial vaginitis if spread to the vaginal area. (Cook SW, et al. Infect Dis Obstet Gynecol. 2001)
