The NCFM® strain of Lactobacillus acidophilus is an extensively tested and effective acidophilus strain.
Bifidobacterium lactis Bi-07® is an abundant type of bacteria in humans.
Saccharomyces boulardii is a unique, safe, non-pathogenic yeast that is antibiotic resistant.
The combination of the 4 strains of live bacteria used in Ultra Probioplex Duo have previously been demonstrated in a double-blind, placebo-controlled study to help restore the levels of good bacteria in the gut following antibiotic use.
The addition of Saccharomyces boulardii means this product is suitable for use both during and after antibiotic therapy.

Ultra Probioplex Duo is an exciting new formula providing not only 4 strains of live bacteria, but also Saccharomyces boulardii, as well as blackberry extract and vitamin D. This is a super stable formula that does not need to be refrigerated, making it perfect for “on the go” and when travelling.
The 4 strains of well-studied live bacteria include L. acidophilus NCFM®, L. paracasei Lpc-37, B. lactis Bi-07® and Bi-04. Each capsule provides 8.5 billion of these live organisms.
A combination of these strains has been shown in studies to reduce the incidence, duration and severity of antibiotic-associated diarrhoea. It is suitable for those taking antibiotics and may be helpful to replenish intestinal flora following antibiotic use or diagnostic stool testing.
Ultra Probioplex™ Duo may help support normal bowel movements and has broad gastrointestinal and immune system support functions.
Each capsule of Ultra Probioplex™ Duo contains 6 billion Saccharomyces boulardii. S. boulardii is a non-pathogenic yeast strain isolated from the skins of tropical fruits.
Saccharomyces boulardii has been significantly researched, and its anti-bacterial effects have been well studied, indicating that several mechanisms are used to protect against pathogenic bacteria, as well as acting directly on pathogenic organisms. Human clinical studies have found S. boulardii to be effective for the management of gastrointestinal bacterial infection in both children and adults.
The majority of evidence shows that Saccharomyces boulardii orally can help prevent antibiotic-associated diarrhoea in both adults and children.
The efficacy of S. boulardii for preventing traveller’s diarrhoea has been demonstrated in a large cohort of travellers, where it has been shown to significantly reduce the incidence of diarrhoea in a dose-dependent manner.
Research has shown that taking Saccharomyces boulardii orally in combination with vancomycin or metronidazole, reduces the reoccurrence of Clostridium difficile diarrhoea in adults and children. And there is evidence to suggest it may protect against infection relapse.
Studies have collectively suggested the beneficial effect of S. boulardii in inflammatory bowel disease, although more research is needed.
Research has shown that blackberries (Rubus fructicosus L.) help to feed friendly bacteria and support a diverse and balanced gut microbial environment. Blackberries not only provide health-promoting compounds including anthocyanins and ellagitannins but can also act as a prebiotic to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria such as Bifidobacteria and Lactobacillus.
Blackberries have a long traditional history in soothing the gut and providing comfort. They contain anthocyanins, which studies have shown, are further broken down in the gut into smaller compounds which have been shown to have anti-inflammatory activity, which may help to soothe a struggling gut.
Research has also found that blackberry juice has anti-microbial effects against food-borne pathogens including Listeria, Salmonella and E. coli. The results showed that blackberry juice significantly inhibited the growth of these unwanted pathogens, and yet stimulated the growth of friendly bacteria.
Ultra Probioplex™ Duo also contains vitamin D, which contributes to the normal function of the immune system.
