Dr Mercola has taken his Award-Winning Probiotics to the next level to help you take control of your gut health. Many probiotic formulas are simply a waste of your time and money as the probiotics don’t make it to your small intestine where they do their best work. This acid- and bile-resistant Complete Probiotics now come in a revolutionary delayed release capsule for an extra layer of stomach acid-resistance protection and better colonisation in your gut.
Modern life can affect your gut’s microbiome and alter its pH, impact your absorption of nutrients, inflammatory response, immune function, digestion and ability to fight invaders. Your gut health depends on having the proper balance between beneficial bacteria and potentially pathogenic bacteria, as well as the health and integrity of your gut lining. When your microbiome falls out of balance or loses its diversity, or your gut lining becomes compromised, it can impact many processes in your body and your risk of chronic disease. This is where probiotics can have a profound effect... not just on your gastrointestinal health, but on your overall health.

Supporting your Healthy Bacteria Naturally
A Different Class of Probiotics
Probiotic formulas are available with many different types of bacterial strains... with the most common being Lactobacillus acidophilus. But not all probiotics are created equal or properly produced to provide optimal benefits. Five key factors that differentiate good probiotic formulas from ineffective ones... Contain effective bacterial strains (must be strain specific). Are viable and dose specific. Thrive in the intestine. Remain stable and viable for a long time. Have the ability to survive harsh stomach acids to reach the intestine. While Dr Mercola insists on a few specific probiotic strains, there's one strain he highly recommend for everyone: Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS®-1. Lactobacillus acidophilusDDS®-1 is a highly studied strain of beneficial bacteria, and, as you’ll soon see, the "DDS®-1" is really important.
The DDS®-1 Probiotic Superstrain – A Study in Benefits. Over the years, studies have demonstrated the diverse effectiveness of DDS®-1: A major midwestern university study showed that after 60 days of treatment, most subjects reported significant improvement in abdominal health, bloating and occasional elimination irregularities. This study suggests that DDS®-1 may help increase the healthy microflora in the gastrointestinal tract. In another study, DDS®-1 helped to support the health of human epithelial cell lines when evaluated as part of a probiotic blend. From the Cultured Dairy Product Journal, DDS®-1 was shown to produce a compound called ‘acidophilin” which demonstrates activity against a variety of pathogenic bacteria. In laboratory research, isolated evaluation of DDS®-1 supported the normal production of immune components.* DDS®-1 performed this better than three other strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus or Bifidobacterium bifidum. Other laboratory studies show the potential beneficial effects of DDS®-1 on cholesterol. A clinical study was done showing daily ingestion of DDS®-1 in combination with 3 Bifidobacterium strains provided significant improvement in gastrointestinal issues like bloating, gas, diarrhea, constipation in the majority of participants.

Lactobacillus Probiotic Strains
Unique Lactobacillus Probiotic Strains that can help reduce your absorption of brain-destroying pesticides and mycotoxin toxicity. Pesticide exposure has become a serious threat to human and animal health. And one class of pesticides in particular has come into the spotlight for its brain-destroying effects: organophosphates. Organophosphates were first developed as a nerve gas during World War II. These chemical warfare agents act the same way organophosphate pesticides do today – they prevent your nervous system from working properly.
Pesticide Syndrome, or the exposure to these nerve agents can cause eye pain and tearing, drooling, sweating, vomiting and seizures. They adversely affect your central nervous system and your brain as well as your heart. Organophosphates are especially hazardous for children and pregnant women... These brain-destroying pesticides are linked to attention and memory deficit as well as reduced IQ. Mycotoxin exposure is just as concerning. Substances formed by molds, mycotoxins frequently contaminate grains and other agricultural products. Aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) is considered the most deadly mycotoxin and is classified as a carcinogen. Zearalenone or ZEA is another common, major contaminant regularly found in corn and corn byproducts. It can cause serious estrogenic effects and has been shown to cause infertility in farm animals. A special strain of Lactobacillus, L. rhamnosus, has been shown to reduce the toxic effects of organophosphate pesticides. Another strain of Lactobacillus, L. plantarum helps reduce the negative effects of mycotoxin exposure. Complete Probiotics contains both of these important probiotic strains.

Prebiotics: Helping Beneficial Probiotics Grow & Thrive
Prebiotics are non-digestible foods that help beneficial probiotics grow and flourish. They act as a type of fertiliser for the good bacteria in your gut. Complete Probiotics contains beneficial prebiotics in the form of Fructooligosaccharide (FOS). FOS is a favorite food for Lactobacilli and Bifobacterium strains as they can efficiently ferment and utilise it for energy. These prebiotics remain in your digestive system to help boost the growth of beneficial bacteria. While Fructooligosaccharides are a form of carbohydrate, they contain less calories than sugar and do not cause a spike in blood sugar. And they are added in very small quantities as to not cause any digestive upset. Adding prebiotics to a high-quality probiotic benefits the entire formula and helps you get the benefits you expect. An Extra Layer of Stomach Acid-Resistance Protection, Thanks to our Revolutionary Delayed Response Capsule... You may have noticed that many probiotics come packed in standard vegetarian capsules. These capsules can’t always protect probiotic strains from harsh stomach acids and bile. If the strains aren’t acid- and bile-resistant, you may end up paying for benefits you never receive.
Dr Mercola 70 CFU Complete Probiotics, is uniquely different... Probiotics do their best work in your intestines and not in your stomach. Yet to make it through your stomach’s harsh acidic environment unscathed, the probiotic strains need protection. We specifically select probiotic strains that are naturally resistant to stomach acid and bile. And, unlike many other manufacturers, we test our probiotic strains for survivability. After all, if the probiotics can’t survive their journey to their target – your intestines – you may be wasting your money. First, Dr Mercola Complete Probiotics contains 80% probiotic strains that are greater than 90 percent acid- and bile-resistant. The manufacturer uses patented delayed release capsules called DRcaps™ to provide additional protection from stomach acid. The first of their kind, these acid-resistant hard capsules are made of a vegetable substance that slows down capsule opening after swallowing. They even tested them on human subjects using an independent lab… The capsule manufacturers measured how long it took the hard capsules to reach the intestines and release their contents so they could be confident that the probiotics wouldn’t be harmed. DRcaps capsules displayed delayed release properties as designed. Disintegration started 45 minutes after ingestion versus 5 minutes for a typical immediate release capsule. For the majority of subjects, complete release occurred in the intestine. Release was complete within 20 minutes after onset. The DRcaps capsules’ delayed opening was sufficient to protect a probiotic’s fragile bacteria strains from the harsh acidic environment of the stomach.

The Secret to Improving your Mental Health...
The effects of a healthy microbiome reach far more widely than just your gut. Your gut flora affect much more than your digestive health – it affects the health of your entire body, including your brain. And while many don’t realise it, your gut even affects your mood. Your gut contains a network of neurons or brain cells called your enteric nervous system (ENS). Your ENS controls both digestion and mental well-being. Changes in your gut bacteria can have a noticeable effect on your mood and sleeping patterns. You actually have two brains – one inside your skull and one in your gut. They’re connected by what’s known as the gut-brain connection. That link explains how your microbiome can influences your mood and brain health.
In one study, women who regularly consumed yogurt containing beneficial bacteria had improved brain function in two specific areas, compared to those that did not consume any probiotics. The two areas affected were the: Insular cortex, which plays a role in functions associated with emotion, including perception, motor control, self-awareness, cognitive functioning and interpersonal experience. Somatosensory cortex, which aids the body in interpreting a wide variety of sensations. The group who consumed yogurt with beneficial probiotics also showed greater connectivity between regions of your brain associated with cognition. You can see how important it is to keep your gut bacteria healthy, both for physical and emotional wellbeing.
Eating commercial Yogurt doesn't take the place of probiotics, most yogurts are not a good source of probiotics. Many have little to no live probiotics. Unless you make your own yogurt at home with a high quality culture starter, you can’t be sure that you’re getting any significant probiotic benefit. Even the natura, organic lovely eco-packaging ones have likely had the beneficial bacteria reduced or wiped out by the heat-intensive pasteurisation processes. This is very similar to why we now have less bacteria overall in our everyday environments. Antibacterial products, including hand sanitisers, have made for a world that may be a whole lot cleaner, but not exactly healthier. With less helpful bacteria available in our food and our environment, we're even more convinced of how crucial it is to take a high-quality probiotic supplement. We also recommend you read up on Spore biotics (See Complete Spore Restore Probiotics in related products) for total gut health.
