About Omni-Biotic: Targeted Clinically Tested Probiotic Formulations Multispecies & Multistrain Indication Focused Formulations: Each Omni-Biotic probiotic is a multistrain and multispecies formulation. Every strain is identified and extensively analyzed to determine strengths and suitability for its specific indication-focused formulation. All strains used in our products have FDA GRAS status.
Final Formulations Validated in Clinical Studies: Each Omni-Biotic formulation is validated through preclinical studies and controlled human trials. More than 50 studies using Omni-Biotic are published in high-ranked peer-reviewed journals such as AP&T and the American Journal of Gastroenterology.
Highly Effective Delivery Mechanism: Omni-Biotic probiotics have a much higher survival rate through the digestive tract, compared to capsule brands. Our powder contains freeze-dried bacteria (for extra shelf life) and prebiotic nutrients (as food for the probiotic bacteria). When Omni-Biotic is dissolved in water, the good bacteria rehydrate and nourish on the prebiotic nutrients. This makes the probiotics strong for the passage through the acidic environment of the stomach and small intestine. 85% of probiotic bacteria arrive in the large intestine alive, compared to less than 5% in many probiotic capsules.
Formulated by Gut Microbiome Experts: All Omni-Biotic formulations are developed by Institut Allergosan, an internationally recognized center for microbiome science and research. Founded in 1991 and headquartered in Austria, Institut Allergosan is dedicated to expanding the frontiers of microbiome research. They currently have more than 25 research partnerships with universities, including the Charite in Berlin. The Omni-Biotic product portfolio is highly awarded, including Winner "Best OTC performance" (IQVIA Austria Awards 2018), Winner "Quality Award" (IQVIA 2015, 2016 and 2017), and winner of "Europe's most innovative OTC product" (Nicholas Hall, 2016/2017).
Made for Performance & Convenience: Omni-Biotic comes as a powder, packaged in individual sachets. Each sachet is carefully designed to keep light and moisture out. The daily-dose sachets also make it convenient for travel and on-the-go. The probiotic bacteria in Omni-Biotic probiotics are freeze-dried and therefore do not require refrigeration. Their shelf life is generally 24 to 36 months, depending on the specific formulation.
