Probiotic 100 Billion Benefits
I recommend probiotics to everyone. In fact, probiotics are one of the four essential supplements that I recommend my patients take every day. We have more bacteria in and on our bodies than we have actual human cells in our body. We live symbiotically with them, and when they are in balance, they promote optimal digestion and immunity, both of which are crucial to every aspect of your health and well being.
My Probiotic Capsules 100 Billion are some of the strongest probiotics on the market today. When I formulated my 100 Billion strength probiotics, I chose 14 of the most important strains, and made absolutely sure that there were enough viable CFU’s (Colony Forming Units) in each capsule to support maximum digestive health and immune function. Take a look at the probiotics at your local health-food store. You’ll find that most of them don’t even come close to the potency of my Probiotic Capsules 100 Billion.
This Probiotic Doesn’t Include Fillers
Probiotics 100 Billion Capsules don’t play the ‘fillers’ game. I combined these 14 super probiotic strains in amounts that are actually therapeutic; they’re not simply included as fillers because they’re inexpensive, as happens with so many other company’s probiotic supplements.
A Probiotic for Both Women and Men
Formulated for women and men. Among the strains I included are Lactobacillus rhamnosus, which can help support healthy bowel function, particularly when it’s been compromised by antibiotics. IBS is a major women's health issue. In fact, of the estimated 25 to 40 million people in the U.S. alone who have it, women make up roughly two-thirds of the people who have IBS. I saw thousands of patients in my clinic with digestive distress, so I made sure to include strains such as Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium lactis, Lactobacillus plantarum, and Streptococcus thermophilus to help support a woman’s body and provide us the best strains to support your optimal gut health.
Support Full Body Wellness, Not Just Digestive Health
My Probiotics 100 Billion support your entire body and mind, not just digestive health! I also chose to include Lactobacillus gasseri, which may support weight loss as well as Lactobacillus reuteri and Lactococcus lactis both of which impact bowel transit time in several ways. Because maintaining your gut health is so important to the production of the feel-good hormone serotonin, which is primarily produced in the gut, I included Lactobacillus helveticus to support your optimal gut health. And, of course, all the Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium strains in my probiotics work together not only to support optimal vaginal wellness; they also boost your overall gut health where most of your immune system is found.
What about viability and refrigeration? I made absolutely certain that my probiotic capsules are sealed in a high quality injection molded bottle to protect the capsules from factors proven to compromise the stability of probiotics such as heat, light, moisture, and oxygen. They do not require refrigeration during shipping or storage.
Probiotics support optimal digestive health and can help you ‘beat the bloat.’ While it’s true that probiotics live in your sinuses, your nostrils, on your skin, and even in your mouth, most of the probiotics in your body reside in your digestive tract, specifically your large intestine and colon. When stress, illness, antibiotic use, or a poor diet compromise the probiotic bacteria population in these areas of the body, digestive symptoms are imminent. Gas, bloating, and a disruption of normal bowel habits are often the first signs that something has gone awry. Supplementation with a top quality probiotic can help repopulate these areas with beneficial bacteria, often helping to restore normal digestion, and helping you ‘beat the bloat.
A Probiotic to Support Weight Loss
Probiotics assist with healthy weight loss. It’s absolutely true. The correct balance of probiotic bacteria in your gut supports your body’s fat burning efforts and helps maintain and control a healthy weight Probiotics also help digest your food, break down fiber, produce water soluble B vitamins, as well as fat soluble vitamins such as vitamin K. These beneficial bacteria also produce short chain fatty acids that can boost your metabolism which also supports healthy weight management.
Immune System Support
Probiotics are critical for a fine tuned immune system. If you haven’t heard me say it before, allow me to say it again here: 60-80% of your body’s immune system is located in your gut. This is in large part because your gut microbiology is so critical to the way your immune system operates. Probiotics also support the adaptive immune system as well as immune homeostasis and your body’s inflammation response.
Probiotics support regular and healthy bowel habits. Did you know that probiotic bacteria account for up to 70% of the bulk of a healthy bowel movement? Without adequate probiotic bacteria in your large intestine and colon, stool often does not have enough bulk to stimulate peristalsis (the contractions of the colon that help you have a bowel movement). Well formed stool is just one piece of the puzzle though. Your large intestine and colon should also be protected by a thin, healthy layer of mucus. This layer helps bowel movements pass easily, but without adequate probiotic bacteria, it is often compromised, leading to poorly formed and difficult to pass stool.

Because of the probiotic strains I chose, and the way the capsule delivers the probiotics to your digestive tract, you may take these with or without food, day or night. Try them at different times to see what time of the day works best for you!
Is it safe to give probiotics to children?
I generally recommend my less potent 30 Billion Probiotic for children and teenagers. Because everyone tolerates probiotics differently, I always recommend raising this question with your child’s pediatrician, so that their health history and individual circumstances may be taken into account when forming a decision and before starting supplementation.
How often should I take probiotics?
Take one capsule per day, ideally before a meal to increase the chances of survival of the probiotics through the stomach acid and reaching the gut. However, I recommend you consult with your physician before use to determine what works best for you.
Is it safe to take probiotics when I am on antibiotics?
It is generally safe to take probiotics while on antibiotics, however it's important to speak with your physician first. Antibiotics can disrupt the balance of bacteria in the gut, and probiotics can help replenish the beneficial bacteria. However, certain antibiotics may not be compatible with all probiotics. It's also a good idea to take probiotics a couple of hours before or after taking antibiotics to avoid any irritation and ensure their effectiveness.
Is it possible to take too many probiotic capsules?
It is possible to take too many probiotic capsules. Taking high doses of probiotics can lead to digestive side effects, such as gas, bloating and diarrhea. In some cases, taking too many probiotics can also lead to an overgrowth of bad bacteria in the gut. It's

Why Buy from Amy Myers MD?
Finally, supplements from a source you can actually trust. After receiving my medical degree (M.D.) at Louisiana State University, I completed my residency in Emergency Medicine at the University of Maryland Medical Center. In 2012, I became a certified functional medicine physician, so I could help my patients get to the root cause of their health problems.
Since then, I’ve gone on to write 2 New York Times bestselling books, as well as the Amazon #1 bestseller The Autoimmune Solution Cookbook. I’ve been a guest on the Dr. Oz Show 7 times, have starred in my own PBS special, and been featured in dozens of television, radio, and magazine interviews.
Many other supplement brands are run by fly-by-night operations looking to turn a quick buck. Not so with Amy Myers MD® — it’s one of the only health and wellness brands owned and operated by a real medical doctor (that’s me)!
You’ll know exactly what you’re getting because all products are 3rd party tested and verified. You may be surprised to know that the supplement industry is not regulated by the FDA and it’s up to the manufacturer to ensure they’re delivering high-quality products that contain what they say they do.
All of the supplements I carry in my store carry the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) seal, meaning they have been 3rd party tested for purity, quality, potency, and composition, so you can rest assured that you’re getting the key nutrients you’re paying for and that your body needs.
High-potency, pharmaceutical grade supplements to maximize value and impact.
Because I am a licensed physician, the supplements I carry are pharmaceutical grade, meaning they are higher quality and typically higher dosages than you can find in a health food store or online retailer.
This is vital because cost per unit is a key metric to look at when choosing supplements. If you look at a supplement such as my 100 Billion probiotic, you will find that you may need to take nearly an entire bottle of other probiotics to achieve the same potency.
My supplements contain no gluten, dairy, soy, GMOs, preservatives, dyes, or toxic ingredients. You’re not eating these inflammatory foods or toxins so why would you want them in your supplements?! I source all of the ingredients in my supplements from pure, clean sources.
There are a few incredibly rare exceptions where products contain trace amounts of dairy or egg because of the way they need to be formulated, however they are clearly marked on the product page and are in such low quantities that even my very sensitive patients typically have not had a reaction.
The highest quality ingredients in the form that is best absorbed and utilized by your body. The form and formulation of the vitamins and nutrients in your supplements make a difference! I have specifically sourced and formulated the ingredients in my products to be in their most bioavailable forms for maximum effectiveness.
