Each UniBac Essential 9 capsule:
- Provides 9 species of bacteria to support a healthy gut, including the Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus strains which have been shown to alleviate IBS symptoms.
- Increases the bio-availability of macro and micro nutrients, including Vitamins B, K, lactase, calcium, and essential fatty acids.
- Supports the immune system's role in destroying viruses, fungi, pathogenic bacteria and parasites.

- Supports recovery from antibiotic use, restoring intestinal flora destroyed by antibiotics and restoring natural balance.
- Helps with both constipation and diarrhoea which are often indicators of an imbalance in gut bacteria.
- When the intestinal walls are coated with friendly bacteria, it provides a barrier to pathogens and supports the production of lactoferrin, an iron-binding protein that helps us obtain iron from the foods we eat and promotes healthy red blood cells.
- Sweetens the breath by reducing yeast infections in the upper digestive tract and throat, especially Candida Albicans, the cause of Oral Thrush.

Lactobacillus Rhamnosus GG (LGG)
There are many products, including yogurts with active cultures that contain Lactobacillus acidophilus. While Lactobacillus acidophilus is advertised as a beneficial probiotic, it is not the same as Lactobacillus Rhamnosus GG (LGG). Read the label carefully to be sure you're a getting a product that contains LGG. Lactobacillus Rhamnosus survives passage through the human gut to better support the body in overcoming both pathogens and parasites.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Are Probiotics?
Probiotics are naturally occurring live bacteria that are available in certain foods. Fermented vegetables, sauerkraut and live yogurt are examples that we all know of. Probiotic means "promoting life", which suggests that they have a very important role in health because probiotics help to populate your gut with good bacteria.
Aren't Bacteria bad?
After decades of trying to destroy bacteria with soap and antibiotics, we are coming to a greater understanding of the symbiotic relationship we have with bacteria in our bodies. While some make us sick, others play essential roles in digestion, human immunity and are even thought to produce chemicals that determine our moods. Around 100 trillion microorganisms and 500 different species live in every normal, healthy bowel. These microorganisms are not normally harmful. Quite the opposite in fact! Gut-dwelling bacteria keep pathogens (harmful microorganisms) in check and are essential to many digestive processes that enable us to absorb nutrients from food, and they are consequently at the very heart of immune function.
Are Probiotics good for IBS?
Although scientists aren't fully aware of the reasons yet, probiotics have been shown to alleviate IBS symptoms including abdominal pain, bloating, and irregular bowel movements. The Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus strains, both included in the 9 strains found in UniBac, have been shown to be particularly beneficial. Both of these strains are also commonly found in yogurts.
How do Probiotics Work?
When gut bacteria become out of balance, for whatever reason, it would appear humans become out of balance too. In fact, our gut is populated in a delicately and regularly evolving kaleidoscope of gut bacteria: there are good bacteria, bad bacteria, and very bad bacteria and the situation changes according to diet, antibiotic use etc. When we have an imbalance and the bad bacteria are winning, we are more likely to become ill and even depressed (gut bacteria produce neurochemicals that regulate basic psychological processes). It is now believed that the human gut needs to be diversely populated with a range of competing microbial inhabitants for us to be healthy.
When people first start taking probiotic supplements, there's a tendency to develop gas and bloating in the first few days. Apart from these temporary symptoms, probiotics are generally considered safe as part of a healthy diet. Some people however, should avoid probiotics either in foods or supplements, and they include people with weakened immune systems, or cancer patients. Speak to you doctor about any concerns.
What's the difference between Probiotics and Prebiotics?
Probiotics are live, beneficial bacteria found in fermented foods such as yogurt and Kefir. Prebiotics are a special type of fibre that fertilize or feed the Probiotics once they've reached the large intestine. Foods such as Apples, Bananas, Onions, Garlic and Oats contain some fibre that passes through the small intestine undigested, reaching the lower part of the gastrointestinal tract where it begins to ferment. This fermentation process then nourishes the Probiotics that have reached the large intestine, helping them to multiply and enhance the beneficial effects.
Do I need Probiotics?
If you are struggling with digestive issues like constipation, diarrhoea, acid reflex, irritable bowel, or leaky gut, or you have had courses of antibiotics in the last 3-5 years, you may consider a probiotic supplement to support a healthy diet and lifestyle.
Can I source probiotics from food?
You can! Yoghurt, Kefir and Sauerkraut are excellent sources. A low-glycaemic, whole food diet that includes healthy proteins, fats and fibre, along with probiotics can improve the health of your gut significantly. Prebiotics are also highly useful non-digestible carbohydrates that provide food for friendly bacteria: food sources include beans, garlic, onions and leeks.
Will probiotics survive stomach acid and make it to the digestive tract?
Probiotics must survive in the acidic gastric environment if they are to reach the small intestine and colonize the host, thereby imparting their benefits. Lactobacillus species are considered intrinsically resistant to acid.
When is the best time to take a probiotic?
The best time to take probiotics is alongside your meals. Right before or just after the meal is best for getting the most out of our probiotics. By taking your probiotic with food you provide a buffering system for the supplement and aid its safe passage through the digestive tract. Taking alongside a healthy, high fibre meal provides the best chance of getting the most out of your probiotics.
What's the best storage method for probiotics?
In a cool, dark place or in the refrigerator, however refrigeration is not necessary with our standardised new product.
What are UniBac's capsules made from?
Our capsules are made from Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose. HPMC is used in both the pharmaceutical and supplement fields as a stable alternative to gelatin which is derived from animals and carries the risk of transmissible disease. HPMC is both FDA and EU (since 2011) approved as a food additive.
