No. Even without being refrigerated, PROGUT probiotics is stable under high temperature up to 50°C.
Yes, PROGUT’s probiotics is safe for pregnant mothers and infants to consume.
Yes. PROGUT can be taken even if you are taking your doctor’s medication, if you are worried that PROGUT might interfere with your medication then you take it 30 minutes apart.
Antibiotic kills every microorganism and you may take PROGUT immediately after your course of antibiotic to prevent and strengthen your immunity.
Yes. PROGUT’s friendly bacteria can survive under harsh and acidic condition because it starts from the very beginning of probiotic selection where only the best strains are selected. PROGUT’s probiotic survive acidic condition as low as pH1.2 (which is very acidic). Other products in the market will only survive between pH2-pH3.
Many probiotic manufacturers want you to believe that a special type of coating, called enteric coating, is necessary for the beneficial bacteria to survive. Basically, enteric coating is a type of layer put on the capsule itself to supposedly ensure survival of the beneficial bacteria in your GI tract. Honestly we have two issues with enteric coating that can be summed up as follows;
According to probiotic experts, selecting specific acid- and bile-resistant strains coupled with high-quality manufacturing processes, negate the need for enteric coating. In fact, the process of enteric coating could potentially add to the cost which will be more expensive.
Many enteric coatings use synthetic ingredients. Most enteric coated probiotics are treated with a polymer of acrylic acid... a synthetic chemical often sprayed onto the capsule.
So, why would a high-quality probiotic supplement such as PROGUT require coating that is synthetic, which is unnecessary and if use in a long term may cause side effects.
Prebiotics are non-digestible carbohydrates that act as food for probiotics. The prebiotics that feed the "good" bacteria in your GI tract primarily come from carbohydrate fibers called “inulin” which derived from the plant “Chicory” from Belgium (which is organic) that you don't digest easily. They remain in your digestive system to help boost the growth of beneficial bacteria.
The sweetness of PROGUT comes from “inulin” (prebiotic) and not to worry as it is well tolerable by diabetic people. The nutritional content is 1.2g of carbohydrate per sachet and is less than a table spoon of white rice.
PROGUT consists of probiotics and prebiotics, the sticky substance is actually "Prebiotic" which is "INULIN" that derives from the plant "chicory". This inulin fiber is a carbohydrate belonging to a class of compounds known as fructans. Because inulin fiber is resistant to digestion in the upper gastrointestinal tract it reaches the large intestine essentially intact, where it is fermented by indigenous bacteria (help flourish the growth of good bacteria).
