According to traditional medicine, all well being originates in the intestines. Long before the invention of microscopes or the term ‘friendly bacteria’ was coined, it is astounding how this was intuitively known. Today science tells us that an important key to wellness indeed lies in the trillions of bacteria that exist in our digestive tract, specifically in the balance we maintain between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ bacteria. While some types of intestinal bacteria are potentially harmful, others known as ‘friendly’ bacteria keep these harmful microorganisms in check. They also produce beneficial enzymes and important nutrients and aid in digestion, metabolism, detoxification, etc. A strong level of friendly bacteria is associated with better overall health and stronger immunity, and many researchers believe that great benefits of good bacteria are yet to be discovered.

“The truth is that feeling well depends on keeping your friendly bacteria happy,” says Marcelle Pick, OB/GYN. “You can keep this community thriving with a good diet, good health habits, and supplementing with probiotics.”

Bifidobacteria Delivered Alive

Bifidobacterium longum is widely considered the most important friendly intestinal bacterium. Healthy levels of bifidobacteria are depleted by aging, antibiotics, alcohol, caffeine, stress, pollutants, etc. Yet, because this anaerobic bacteria cannot survive stomach acid, heat, or oxygen, supplementing with an effective live dose has been next to impossible — until Bifa-15®.

EDEN Bifa-15 is a one-of-a-kind probiotic food supplement harnessing state of the art food science technology to help us restore vital balance. Its most unique feature is its patented tiny seamless micro capsules, designed to deliver bifidobacteria alive to the large intestine, their natural home address. The capsules protect the bacteria from air, stomach acid, and heat, only releasing into the large intestine. Each dose of Bifa-15 delivers two billion living bifidobacteria (Bifidobacterium longum) and one billion friendly lactic acid producing bacteria (Lactobacillus acidophilus and Enterococcus faecium) in convenient, single dose tubes.

Refreshing, Easy, and Handy

Bifa-15 tubes are easy to use and handy for purses, pockets, briefcases … wherever you may go. Each tube contains the patented micro capsules along with pleasantly flavored granules of oligosaccharide, a complex sugar that helps bifidobacteria to grow and multiply. You can take Bifa-15 any time of day, with or without food. Just tear at the dotted end and pour into your mouth. Its refreshing, citrus plant essences prompt saliva, making Bifa-15 easy to swallow. You can also take it with water. Bifa 15 does not require refrigeration, but it should be protected from high heat. For example, please don't leave it in a hot car. Please read and follow all package instructions and cautions, and Enjoy Intestinal Fortitude! For more information, full ingredients, etc. and to order, visit bifa-15.com.
