ADM Protexin’s Bio-Kult probiotic brand is growing its lineup with two products — one aimed at maximizing probiotic benefits, and another meant to help during travel. Both also offer immune-boosting ingredients.
Bio-Kult Boosted is the first new product, complementing the 14-strain probiotics of Bio-Kult’s original formulation with a whopping 8 billion colony-forming units, or CFUs, making it four times more concentrated than the original formulation. The extra CFUs mean that consumers only need to take one capsule per day and vitamin B12 means that the product also supports the normal functioning of the immune system, according to the company.
Also joining the brand’s lineup is Bio-Kult S. Boulardii, which contains the live yeast Saccharomyces boulardii CNCM I-3799 — which is regularly recommended by nutritional therapists for travel support. The product also contains Preplex and vitamins D3 and B12.
Both products sport new, slimmer packaging, which the company said was designed with ease of use and the environment in mind. Like all other Bio-Kult products, the launches are gluten-free, non-GMO and vegetarian friendly. They also do not require refrigeration, since the bacteria are cryoprotected during the freeze-drying process.
Bio-Kult Boosted carries a suggested retail price of $36.95 for a 30-count bottle and Bio-Kult S. Boulardii has a suggested retail piece of $22.95 for 30 capsules. The products have launched on Bio-Kult’s website and Amazon.com.
