NORTH BERGEN, N.J., Feb. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ProBioCare™, a new, premium line of probiotic supplements, is now exclusively available at the Vitamin Shoppe® and VitaminShoppe.com. ProBioCare contains "friendly" bacteria that help support digestion and a healthy immune system by inhibiting the growth of harmful bacteria and promoting a healthy balance in the intestines.
"So many of our customers have been searching for a probiotic that is non-GMO, allergen-free, and does not need to be refrigerated, to help with their digestive concerns," said Doug Jones, Senior Vice President, Merchandising. "ProBioCare meets these needs by promising to be allergen-free, acid-resistant and stable at room temperature, so our customers can have confidence in these supplements."
There is a growing amount of public interest in, and awareness of, the benefit of probiotics. A number of lifestyle factors, including poor diet, stress and certain medications, may result in an unfavorable balance in the digestive system for some individuals. Many people turn to probiotics to help with digestive concerns and for immune support. Additionally, people often take a probiotic to replenish beneficial bacteria following treatment with antibiotics.
ProBioCare supplements are non-GMO and free of common allergens including gluten, dairy, egg, wheat, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts and soy. They are also formulated to survive the acidic stomach environment and to ensure potency through the expiration date.
