Probiotics (from the Greek pro-bios, “supporting life”) are microorganisms (often bacteria) which are also commonly referred to as “live cultures”. The FAO and WHO offer this definition: “live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host”.
Probiotics act primarily in the intestinal tract, but their beneficial effects extend throughout the body. In particular, they act wherever there is a greater bacterial load in the body. This means that in addition to the intestine, they are also active within the oral cavity, on the skin, and in the vaginal area.
Our CultureScience portfolio features clinically studied probiotics strains, targeting a wide number of important health areas while supporting every stage of life.
Our CultureScience probiotics are offered as single strains or pre-formulated blends that have proven their health benefits through gold-standard human clinical trials.
Our CultureScience probiotics strains are manufactured following the highest quality standards to guarantee activity and viability during your finished product’s shelf life.
