How are probiotics made and where are they sourced from?
Commercially used probiotic bacteria strains can have a variety of origins including human, animal and plant sources.
Bacteria are initially isolated from their origin and then cultured (grown) using specific nutrients suitable for each strain. These beneficial bacteria thrive and multiply from the addition of these nutrients via a process called fermentation. The probiotic bacteria are then rapidly frozen (freeze-dried) under strict controlled conditions.
How to Use
How often should I consume probiotics?

What is the small canister in the probiotic jar for?
The canister is the desiccant. It helps absorb moisture and is used to maintain the probiotic product. Please leave the desiccant(s) in the jar after opening.

Do high temperatures affect stability of the bacteria? Does temperature in transit affect product?
The probiotics are generally stable even with slight fluctuations of temperature above 30 degrees. It could pose more of a problem with prolonged exposure to higher temperatures.
My probiotic product is still within its expiry date but has turned brown. Can I still take them?
The probiotic capsules need to be consumed within 3 months after opening, regardless of expiry date.
Probiotic bacteria count diminishes over time. Will your probiotic product still contain the amount of probiotic stated on the label by the expiry date?
Probiotics do diminish over time, so to ensure Life-Space probiotics stay viable until the expiry date, we add an overage of bacteria to allow for a natural decline over time. However, the probiotic products do need to be stored at below 30 degrees and in a low humidity environment to ensure product integrity is maintained.
