HCP 30 (Human Colonizing Probiotic, 30 Billion Cells) is a Full Spectrum Probiotic supplement featuring 6 human strains that implant healthy flora throughout the entire digestive tract. It provides all the health promoting benefits of the original HCP 70 High Potency Probiotic, but at a more modest dosage making it more ideal for continuous ongoing use.
Progressive HCP 30 Probiotic is manufactured using a cryoprotective process that ensures the viability of the flora. This cold temperature process removes all the available moisture and microencapsulates the strains for optimum stability. It is further enhanced by the addition of a family of stabilizing support nutrients that contribute to the longevity of the active cells.
Progressive HCP 30 Probiotic Is Not Enteric Coated
Some debate exists on whether enteric coating a probiotic supplement will reduce the amount of gastric damage following ingestion. Fermented foods have been acting as our primary source of dietary probiotics for centuries without being enteric coated. As well, enteric coatings typically use a polymer of acrylic acid (a synthetic chemical) which conflicts with HCP 30 Probiotic's all natural approach. During a meal our stomach pH increases and becomes more alkaline (between pH3 and pH4.5). The strains in HCP 30 Probiotic are acid tolerant and can be exposed to a gastric solution in this range without suffering any bacterial loss, eliminating the need for enteric coating. We simply encourage you to take HCP 30 Probiotic with food.
Full Spectrum: Current research has shown that probiotic formulas with more strain variety and higher potencies offer greater activity and overall health benefits.
All Human Strain: HCP 30 contains 100% human strains. Human microflora is, by far, the most compatible with your digestive system. It has the ability to colonize and multiply within the gastrointestinal tract whereas other forms (dairy and plant) sometimes fail to stick to the intestinal wall or simply die off after ingestion.
Entire GI Tract Protection: HCP 30 is specifically designed to inhabit and protect the entire length of the GI tract. The Lactobacilli (Rhamnosus, Acidophilus and Salivarius) primarily colonize within the small intestine, while the Bifidobacteria (Breve, Bifidum and Longum) are most prevalent within the large intestine. Consideration was also given to ensure oral and vaginal probiotic health.
HCP30 is designed to be taken with food to help ensure optimum stomach pH). Consume 1 capsule after breakfast and 1 capsule after dinner for a total of 2 capsules per day. Keep refrigerated whenever possible."
