Proprietary Probiotic Blend
Each of our probiotic supplements are grounded in science and powered by a proprietary 5-strain probiotic blend backed by over 700 research studies.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG is one of the first strains to be patented thanks to its ability to survive and grow rapidly in the gut.15 It is the #1 clinically studied probiotic strain backed by over 500 research studies and over 100 clinical studies. The proprietary Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG strain in Bio360® has been shown to be helpful in supporting healthy digestion*, stimulating an immune response* and inhibiting the growth of harmful bacteria to support a healthy inflammation response*.15,16 Lactobacillus rhamnosus has also shown benefits for cognitive health* and other gut-related disorders*.5,17

Strain 2: Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis
Referenced in 300 scientific publications and backed by over 130 clinical studies, Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis strain is the world’s most documented probiotic Bifidobacterium and the second most studied probiotic species.18 Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis is known for its superior ability to survive the gastric acids and deliver a full-range of benefits.* The benefits of Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis strain in Bio360® includes improved digestive health*, increased regularity*, strengthened immune system* and reduced respiratory infections*.18

Strain 3: Lactobacillus plantarum (WCFS1)
Supported by over 200 research studies, Lactobacillus plantarum (WCFS1™) is the most independently studied probiotic and is often described as a ‘super probiotic’.2 Lactobacillus plantarum is known for its potential to support intestinal integrity in adults and in kids.* It helps keep unfriendly microbes, toxins, and allergens from wreaking havoc* in your gut.2 The specific Lactobacillus plantarum strain (WCFS1™) used in Bio360® has shown benefits for immune health* and its ability to survive gastric stress*.2 Lactobacillus plantarum strains have also shown benefits for skin health* and rebuilding the intestinal lining to support those with leaky gut*.9,17

Strain 4: Lactobacillus fermentum
Lactobacillus fermentum, a probiotic strain known to survive the harshest conditions19 of the human gut, can be found naturally in the mouth, gastrointestinal tract and vaginal tract. The specific Lactobacillus fermentum used in Bio360® has shown benefits for digestive health* and effectively support vaginal health* as part of a multispecies formulation.20,21 Lactobacillus fermentum strains have also been studied for health of expectant mothers and new-borns*, immune health benefits in athletes*, and for cholesterol-lowering* properties.22,23,24

Strain 5: Lactobacillus paracasei
Lactobacillus paracasei rounds out our proprietary five-strain blend that is backed by over 700 studies. The specific Lactobacillus paracasei strain in Bio360® is known for its immuno-modulating properties* and can support immune health*.25 Lactobacillus paracasei strains have also shown benefits for managing a balanced inflammatory response* and addressing leaky gut*.25
