Florastor(R) Receives ConsumerLab.com Certification

he enteric protection of the product, meaning the microorganisms' ability to survive as they make their way through stomach acid and into the small intestine where bacteria would flourish.

"Florastor is the most widely used probiotic in the world and is the product of extensive and ongoing research," says Berry. "It is very important to us that its claims have been validated by a reputable third party so that U.S. consumers can have confidence in the product."

Florastor, which utilizes a freeze-dried form of a beneficial yeast called Saccharomyces boulardii (S. boulardii), was voluntarily submitted for ConsumerLab.com testing and passed the organization's review criteria by meeting its listed number of 10 billion probiotic organisms in a maximum suggested daily serving, as well as being free of microbial contamination and exhibiting sufficient enteric protection.

Florastor is supported by numerous clinical studies and is the only probiotic mentioned by the World Health Organization (WHO) for use in managing recurrent disease associated with the Clostridium difficile (C. diff) infection(1). It is clinically proven to be effective in helping to manage intestinal issues ranging from acute diarrhea to chronic inflammatory conditions (such as Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis). Florastor has also been clinically proven to be particularly effective in combating antibiotic-associated diarrhea, since, unlike bacteria-based probiotics, the beneficial yeast in Florastor cannot be killed by the antibiotic treatment itself.

Probiotics are defined by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, as "live microorganisms administered in adequate amounts, which confer a beneficial health effect on the host." Florastor has shown in more than 50 years of extensive international use to be safe and effective, with an estimated 1.7 billion daily doses sold to date.

Florastor is available in most retail chain pharmacies, and at
