Which Probiotic Supplement Is Right For You?
As a gastric bypass, gastric sleeve patient, we at GastricHealth believe there are six very specific things you want to consider when choosing a probiotic supplement in capsule form:
1. Formulated For Weight Loss Surgery Patients:
Select a probiotic supplement that has 10 or more probiotic strains as diversity leads to survivability, which leads to colonization+, which is the primary consideration for effectiveness.
Strains that are proven to have the greatest impact for weight loss surgery patients are Lactobacillus species which improve the health of the small intestine, and Bifidobacterium species which are important for the colon and provide benefit throughout the GI tract.
2. Acid Stable Matrix:
In order to absolutely guarantee survivability of strains through the acidic stomach and duodenum, make certain your probiotic supplements have been manufactured to delivery potency within the small intestine and lower GI tract.
3. High Colony Forming Unit (CFU) Count:
Choose a probiotic brand that has a higher number of probiotics, from 25 billion to 50 billion and make sure this potency is guaranteed through EXPIRATION . * Most probiotics that are not temperature controlled only guarantee potency at date of MANUFACTURE. This will be identified by checking the fine print on the label.
4. Validated Potency Through Date of Expiration:
In order to guarantee potency through the expiration date, make sure your probiotic supplements are manufactured with sufficient overages, stored under refrigerated conditions, and provide temperature-controlled packaging for shipping to ensure that, when properly stored and refrigerated, they will retain their stated potency through the date of expiration
5. Free From All Major Allergens:
To guarantee maximum effectiveness make sure your probiotic species are cultured on growth media free from of all 8 common allergens: milk/casein, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat/gluten, and soybeans.
6. GMP Manufacturing Facilities and NSF certified:
Good Manufacturing Practices are guidelines that provide a system of processes, procedures and documentation to assure a product has the identity, strength, composition, quality and purity that appear on its label.
NSF International independently registers manufacturers as meeting GMP requirements. The program is open not just to manufacturers of dietary supplements but also to manufacturers of ingredients and raw materials, as well as distribution, warehousing and packaging companies, who want to demonstrate their commitment to public safety.
We highly recommend you avoid any supplements (probiotics included) without the GMP and NSF seal of approval
GastricHealth probiotics are made with the highest quality ingredients to create the absolute best product.
12 Strains of Bacteria
We have went above and beyond to ensure you receive guaranteed benefit from your probiotics by utilizing 12 strains of beneficial bacteria with 3 separate species as opposed to the average of 4-6 strains found in most probiotic supplements.
- 6 Colonizing Strains of Lactobacillus – A study produced in JAMA Surg. 2013 Jun, titled “ The Human Gut Microbiome A review of the Effect of Obesity and surgically Induced Weight Loss” provided the following results.
“Our group showed that in post-RYGB patients, supplementation with lactobacillus probiotics (phylum Firmicutes) led to greater weight loss and less bacterial overgrowth (as measured by the hydrogen breath test) than in RYGB patients given placebo.”
- 4 Colonizing strains of Bifidobacterium – Healthy bacteria that vie for dominance in the colon
- 2 Colonizing strains of Lactic Acid Bacteria – used for millennia as starter cultures for yogurt
Protective Delivery System
Outer capsule is dissolved by the gastric acid of the stomach. Upon exposure to gastric acid, Intactic® forms a gel-like matrix that surrounds and protects the probiotic bacteria. This action facilitates the survival of the probiotics while passing through the acidic stomach.
In the small inestines, the Intactic® shield dissolves to release high numbers of viable, intact probiotics to begin exerting their health-promoting functions.

25 Billion Colony Forming Units (CFU’s) per capsule guaranteed through expiration when properly stored and refrigerated
