Ester-C® with Probiotics combines patented, non-acidic Ester-C® with a multi-strain vegetarian complex of 6 billion bio-active probiotic microorganisms^**. This breakthrough formula is enhanced with BIO-tract® a controlled delivery technology that protects probiotics from harsh stomach acid, releasing both probiotics and Ester-C® throughout the intestinal tract, hour after hour...for the "feel good" difference you can count on.
With BIO-tract®, probiotics get past stomach acid without breaking down. Moistened by fluids in the stomach, a gel-like enteric coated shield develops around the tablet, protecting it from gastric acid and a harsh stomach environment. Once the tablet reaches the intestinal tract, bio-active organisms are released through the protective layer and into the digestive system, where they are most needed. This allows good probiotics to populate throughout the intestinal tract.*
