Probiotics are live microorganisms that exert many beneficial health effects . They provide essential functions in the body whose populations can be changed by microbial interactions, stress, host secretions and immune responses .
Probiotic Eleven contains 11 strains of important, gut-beneficial organisms for promotion of gut health and immune functions. This product is recommended to populate the intestinal tract with a variety of beneficial microorganisms that may be removed in colon cleansing or after times of intestinal stress.

How It Works
Multiple mechanisms of action are believed to be responsible for the benefits of supplemental probiotics . Some are believed to secrete beneficial substances. Some have the ability to adhere to the intestinal walls, preventing attachment and residence of less-friendly microorganisms. Immune benefits are partially attributed to stimulation of Immunoglobulin A. Benevolent microbes also participate in the decomposition of fecal matter, contributing to nutrient absorption and producing vitamins B, D and K as metabolic byproducts . 1
Nature's Sunshine Products Advantage
Probiotic Eleven is formulated with a blend of short -and long-chain fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), which are non-digestible foodstuffs (fiber and other oligosaccharides) that serve as food for the probiotics in the colon. Over 200 clinical studies report health benefits of short-chain FOS, such as improved mineral absorption and bone health, improved immunity and relief of occasional bloating, gas, sour stomach and constipation.
L. plantarum, L. salivarius, S. thermophilus and L . acidophilus have demonstrated the ability to break down lactose, the milk sugar responsible for lactose-intolerance. L. salivarius has demonstrated marked digestive support for the stomach. L. bulgaricus and L. plantarum are associated with immune activities.
Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium infantis, Bifidobacterium longum, Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Lactobacillus brevis, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus rhamnosus , Lactobacillus salivarius, Streptococcus thermophilus, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei and FOS (short- and long-chain).
This supplement provides 11 different strains of living probiotics (friendly bacteria) to help optimize the repopulation of beneficial bacteria in the intestinal tract. Proper amounts of friendly bacteria may result in improved immune function and overall intestinal health. Probiotic Eleven also contains both short and long chain FOS, also known as prebiotic dietary fiber, that promotes friendly bacteria growth in the intestinal tract.
Each capsule provides 6 billion live microorganisms.
Take 12 capsules daily. Recommended for use following colon cleansing or other times of intestinal imbalance. Keep refrigerated or frozen.
