Probiotic Synergy

Designs for Healths reformulated Probiotic Synergy uses the most advanced patented delivery and shelf stability technology available to ensure maximum potency and viability. This is achieved using the latest techniques designed to protect fragile probiotic organisms from harsh stomach acid and deliver the highest number of live organisms to the intestinal tract.

Designs for Healths Probiotic Synergy takes advantage of a new patented delivery technology. It is designed to ensure that the bacteria survive passage through the stomach to the small intestine. The polysaccharide matrix is a delivery system involving gel-forming polysaccharides that are insoluble at a low (acidic) pH like that in the stomach.

Summary of Benefits for Probiotic Synergy:

  1. Advanced technology capsule forms a gel matrix to protect from stomach acid
  2. Probiotic Synergy is stored and shipped cold to prevent overheating, which can lower viability.
  3. It is also stored and shipped to you in a glass bottle, with two high-tech desiccant packets, providing even more protection and stability to these live probiotics.
  4. Four strain formula, including the Bifidobacterium BB-12 and Lactobacillus Acidophilus LA-5, backed by human research

Why Did DFH Choose These Strains?
Designs for Health gets the probiotic strains for this unique, powdered formula from the largest, most trusted producer of dietary supplement probiotics in the United States. This allows us to take advantage of decades of technical expertise, professional know-how from world experts in microbiology, and a state-of-the-art Quality Control department that ensures both the safety and efficacy of these well-researched strains.

The probiotic strains in this formula were produced using a patented stabilization system; the end-result of a 3-year R&D program performed in the United States. So, as long as you keep this product cool or at room temperature, you can trust these probiotics to be stable and viable for 2 full years, as well as inherently acid and bile-resistant. That means you can simply add 1/2 teaspoon of Probiotic Synergy powder to water, to your PaleoMeal shake, or sprinkle them into yogurt or on any cold food, and you will receive the full benefits of the best researched probiotics in the world.

Lactobacillus plantarum was chosen because of its ability to produce high amounts of beneficial enzymes such as protease for aiding protein digestion.

Bifidobacterium lactis and longum have a tremendous amount of research behind them and are very hearty, stable strains. Bifidobacterium lactis will populate the lower intestine whereas the Lactobacillus plantarum will populate the upper intestine. Lactobacillus plantarum also helps lower the pH, making the environment better for the Bifidobacterium lactis.

Regular consumption of probiotics may improve diarrhea, constipation, immune response, mucin production, dysbiosis, bacterial infections, yeast overgrowth, and should be considered during or after use of antibiotics.

This translates to better results through increased levels of protected bacteria optimally released throughout the entire digestive tract.

Factors which increase the need for probiotics:

  • Infants being delivered by C-section or that are not breast fed long enough to establish a strong friendly flora for immunological health
  • Pasteurization of foods and low consumption of fermented foods
  • Increase in the use of antibiotics in our livestock
  • Overuse of antibiotics in treating human infections which may not be caused by bacteria
  • Over consumption of sugar and carbohydrates which promote yeast overgrowth
  • Over consumption of alcohol which promotes yeast overgrowth

Research Indicates Probiotic Supplementation Helps:

  • Immune defense at the intestinal and systemic level
  • Minimize the side effects of antibiotics
  • Minimize allergic responses
  • Prevention/alleviation of traveler's diarrhea
  • Prevention/alleviation of diarrhea and constipation in infants, adults and elderly
  • Inhibit growth of pathogenic organisms: bacteria, yeast, parasites
  • Improve digestion of lactose
  • Alleviate inflammatory bowel disease/ulcerative colitis
  • Vitamin K synthesis
  • Alleviate atopic dermatitis

Glass Bottle
The product is also stored in glass bottles which provide added potency protection. Designs for Health chose these glass bottles because they are best able to protect these moisture and heat sensitive live organisms from UV rays, moisture and heat.

Since taking it, my recurrent yeast infections that would occur after every menstrual cycle resolved. I also notice a great improvement in my constipation. I use this in combination with Zinc & Omega-3 supplements as recommended by the site for adult acne control.

Reviewed by HutchMom from Boston.
This is an excellent product. It helps me keep my gut flora in good shape and keeps me regular. What's not to like? Also, since it's in powder form instead of capsules, I can take more or less as needed. I highly recommend it.

Reviewed by Daniel from Mississippi.
I have been suffering from Candida for about a year from indoor black mold, overly acidic diet and not realizing about our bodies needing Alkalinity and a 7.365 balance. Thanks to Dr. Mann Agoura Hills Center for Healing in Beverly Hills with her Patch Adams hospitality staff...Robin.... and off course curezone.com... I am now feeling better with less symptoms and more balance. Thanks to Rockwell nutrition I was able to order this with a cold pack and the extra cold pack with next day delivery and the powder was cold as a refrigerator!!!!!

Reviewed by I. Miklos from Brooklyn, New York.
In the past I ordered the product in pill form and this time I accidently ordered it in powder form. I like the product very much, but I will not make the mistake of ordering it in powder form again; it is messy.

5 star rating Excellent Probiotic 2/11/2010 Probiotic Synergy by Designs For Health (DFH) 5
Reviewed by Happy from Pittsboro NC.
Great product. Keeps my intestines happy. Have tried many types over the years and this one is the best. The only drawback is the shape -- a round sphere which can be slightly difficult to swallow -- but not too difficult to turn me away. They are still my first choice.

4 star rating feeling good 12/8/2009 Probiotic Synergy by Designs For Health (DFH) 4
Reviewed by Renee from Minneapolis, MN.
My naturopath suggested this product and I have been happy with the results. I really like the fact that it can be taken with food as many others need to be taken on an empty stomach, which requires more planning. I plan to continue taking this indefinitely.

Reviewed by Fleur from Fort Worth, TX.
I have Chron''s disease and went to a naturopath who suggested this probiotic in combination with GI-Microbiotix and Digestizmes. Now I have almost no symptoms and have lost 9 lbs. The powdered form of this probiotic is my favorite and it tastes fine, but I always take it before a meal as it sometimes sticks to the roof of my mouth! This is a great product!

5 star rating Healthy, stable, tolerant digestive system 10/13/2008 Probiotic Synergy by Designs For Health (DFH) 5
Reviewed by G Ferguson from Suwanee, GA.
I have suffered from Crohn''s disease in the past and, though my Crohn''s has been in remission for years, my digestive system was very reactive. I began taking this particular probiotic at the advice of my nutritionist. Since then my digestive tract has been much healthier. I am less susceptible to the effects of too much stress and not enough sleep and my "system" is much more stable and "tolerant" when I stray from an ideal diet.
