What is a Probiotic?
Probiotics are live microorganisms, often referred to as “good” bacteria, that have numerous health benefits. Good bacteria live in our digestive tract and are necessary for our bodies to function properly. Good bacteria help our body digest food, destroy disease-causing “bad” bacteria, and produce important vitamins, along with many other essential functions. Probiotics need to be alive, stabilized and robust to properly adhere to the intestinal tract and produce beneficial health effects.
What is Biotik™?
Biotik™ is the new way to take your probiotic. It is an Australian Probiotic brand that uses the unique DRYCAP™ technology to deliver fresh, live stable probiotics in a great tasting micro-shot. Biotik™ contains one of the world’s leading Lactobacilli strains featured in numerous human clinical studies, LP-DG™ (Lactobacillus paracasei CNCM I-1572). The LPDG™ strain is proven to Survive, Thrive and Multiply making it highly effective.
Why should I take Biotik™?

When should I take Biotik™?
Biotik™ should be taken before food (ideally first thing in the morning). When on a course of antibiotics, take one micro-shot daily, 3 hours before or after taking the antibiotic. The LPDG™ strain in Biotik™ has excellent adhesion qualities allowing high colonization and growth to occur meaning Biotik™ micro-shots can be taken daily or every 2-3 days and still deliver excellent daily digestive health.

Our unique strain LPDG™ is resistant to the gastric acids found in the stomach allowing it to survive its journey to the intestine (clinical trials have proven its robustness and survivability).
How long does it take to realise the benefits of Biotik?
Results from Biotik™ may be tangible within a few days, but expect to see improved digestion and immunity after a week to 10 days.
Does Biotik™ need to be kept in Fridge?
Biotik™ probiotics stand out among other probiotic brands because they are stable and effective over time without requiring refrigeration. Biotik™ probiotics come in a unique micro-shot system that separates the powder probiotic from the plant extract and vitamin-fortified liquid, until the moment the packaging seal is broken and the two are combined. This system keeps the probiotic fresh, dry and stable.
Can Probiotics help with Diahorea?
Yes. Probiotics play a key role in preventing and improving diarrhea symptoms. Diarrhea occurs when the normal process of gastrointestinal absorption has been disrupted, either by an infection or by an imbalance in the bacteria in our gut, creating the general inability of our gastrointestinal tract to break down and absorb ingested nutrients. When this happens, foods and fluids pass too quickly through the digestive system, resulting in loose and watery stools three or more times a day. A common cause of diarrhea is also the use of antibiotic treatments which, while eliminating bad bacteria, also destroy healthy microflora.
If I am on a course of Antibiotics, when should I take a Probiotic?
Although some health-care practitioners suggest taking probiotics after we are done with a course of antibiotics, it is also a good idea to take probiotics at the same time we take antibiotics. This is because the antibiotics work to wipe out all microorganisms in our gut, both good and bad. Taking probiotics during this time will help repopulate the good bacteria we need during this time to facilitate digestion, immunity and other health benefits of good bacteria. It will not hurt us to rebuild the good bacteria in our gut while we are eliminating the bad bacteria in our gut, and it will help our digestive tract continue to function properly. Ideally, we want to continue taking probiotics daily, but be sure to continue a course of probiotics for at least two weeks after stopping antibiotics.
