Recommended Intake: Take 2 tablets daily preferably after the main meals of the day. To make the most of the beneficial effect of the probiotics, take them at least 2 hours apart from your antibiotics, because this way less of the ‘good bacteria’ will get eliminated by the antibiotics.
One of the effects of ageing is that the body naturally loses more of the friendly bacteria (bifidobacteria in particular) needed to maintain a healthy digestive system. The seven strains of friendly bacteria in Balance+ help boost the microflora levels, which together with extra vitamins helps maintain a healthy immune system. This combination works to seed the gut with high concentrations of probiotics whilst adding vitamins to the diet. High concentrations of Bifidobacterium species contained in this formula are important in maintaining digestive function particularly in the case of digestive disorders or in the older person's gut where these beneficial microorganisms are known to decline in concentration with age.

It is useful to know that the lactic acid bacteria are sensitive to commonly used antibiotics. Therefore, a period of at least 3 hours should separate the consumption of the antibiotic and Protexin supplement. The product does not replace a balanced diet. The recommended daily intake is not to be exceeded. Keep out of reach of children.
