How many bacteria does each capsule of Alflorex® contain?
A single Alflorex® capsule contains around 1 billion bacteria, or 1 x 109 colony forming units (CFUs). The number of bacteria in each capsule has been scientifically studied and chosen for optimal effectiveness. The dose in the capsule remains effective throughout its shelf life.

How long should I take Alflorex® for and what happens if I stop?
The 35624® bacterial culture in Alflorex® stays in your gut for as long as you continue to take the product and then will naturally be swept out by regular bowel movements.

It is a food supplement containing bacteria belonging to a species that may be passed naturally from mother to baby at birth, and which may live naturally in the gut. The safety of the bacteria contained in Alflorex® has been confirmed by research studies in humans. During the first few weeks of taking Alflorex®, some people may experience mild and temporary changes in their gut.

Can I take the product with medicines? Can I take the product with antibiotics?
There are no known adverse interactions of Alflorex® with medicines. If you are prescribed antibiotics, it is best to take Alflorex® at a different time of day from the antibiotics because the bacteria in Alflorex® can be inactivated by antibiotics.

Suggested Use

Take 1 capsule daily with or without food.

Alflorex® can be taken with or without food, at any time of the day. However, fruit juices are generally acidic and acid can damage the 35624® culture so we recommend taking it with water or milk or less acidic drinks e.g. soya, almond or rice milks. However, Alflorex® can be taken as part of a meal that has fruit juice, as the food will help protect the 35624® culture.

Do not exceed the stated dosage. Food supplements should not be used as substitutes for a varied diet and a healthy lifestyle. Keep out of the reach of children. Store below 30°C.

No refrigeration required.

Consume within 1 month of opening. For best results we recommend you store Alflorex® in the original container with the lid securely closed.
