Many products fail to reach the intestines because they are destroyed by the acid environment of the stomach. The bacteria in Bio-Culture are encapsulated within a stomach resistant gel matrix. The capsule is dissolved by acid in the stomach, but the bacteria remains protected by the gel, which in turn dissolves in the intestine to release the bacteria for maximum benefit.
Bacteria are freeze dried and packed into a hermetically sealed aluminium tube which keeps them fresh and prolongs the shelf life once opened.
Live cultures/ strains are food supplements containing living microrganisms that help maintain healthy functioning of the gastrointestinal tract, altering the balance of intestinal bacterial flora in favour of beneficial organisms.
Directions for use:
Pharma-Nord recommends 1-3 capsules daily
There is no Recommended Daily Intake for live cultures/ strains. Levels of naturally occurring lactic acid bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract decrease with age, and are reduced following the intake of alcohol and certain medicines.
MSG Free (mono-sodium glutamate)
Lactose Free – though the cultures in this product may contain residues of milk protein and are not milk free. This product is therefore suitable for people with lactose intolerance, but it is not recommended for people who are allergic to milk proteins.

Guaranteed to contain 4 billon bacteria per capsule
Stable at room temperature – ideal for travelling as it doesn’t have to kept refrigerated
Oral administration is well tolerated and safe. There are no reported adverse effects, and no known risk of overdose. This product can be taken by pregnant and lactating women.
Each Bio-Culture capsule guarantees at least 4 billion live beneficial bacteria, and is designed to be stable at room temperature. Many commercial formulations need to be stored in a refrigerator (inconvenient for travellers), contain relatively few viable bacteria (typically 0.1-2 billion), or are inactivated by the adverse environment of the stomach (before reaching the intestines).
Bio-Culture is manufactured under Danish pharmaceutical control.
