High Potency Micro Encapsulated Probiotic
For several years, we have recommended that our GC® GoutCare (item 1221 for Gout) customer base strongly consider taking a high-quality Probiotic. It is imperative to offer one with room temperature stability that possesses an extensive shelf life and yields extreme consistency in quality and quantity. A good formula must ensure the survival of these friendly bacteria strains through the stomach acids and into the intestines.
We are proud to carry a top-notch formula that is second to none- Friendly Fighters Pro®. This formula not only provides an extensive shelf life and room temperature stability but is also able to resist gastric acids and heat. Friendly Fighters® are a select blend of beneficial bacteria most effective in colonizing in the intestines for optimal health benefits. Learn more about the importance of Probiotic use below.
Micro-Encapsulated Friendly Fighters Pro®
Are more cells always better? Not necessarily. Everyone’s body and needs are different. ALL strains are beneficial to all walks of life, while some strains can assist on a deeper level with specific health issues. Our 2 billion cell formula could easily provide more benefit to one individual vs. other formulas with higher cell counts. Often times, other products pack billions of cells in hopes of at least some making it through the stomach acids to provide their benefits. We circumvent this issue entirely by providing these micro-encapsulated products.
Our bodies are constantly challenged by various, and different, factors each day that kill off these vital strains of friendly bacteria. We can help keep these numbers at sufficient levels to fight against discomfort and disease from every angle. Still new to learning about probiotics? Read all about them below. Our individual product page offers more specific information on the strains and their benefits.
Our guarantee states that 2 billion viable cells will survive the stomach acids in order to take residence in the intestines and do their jobs. 20% of our population have health conditions that contribute to a higher level of stomach acids and intestinal disorders that cause a lower level of probiotics to survive the stomach and duodenum.
What exactly are Probiotics?
The intestinal flora serves as a barrier, protecting against infections by avoiding the colonization of disease-causing pathogens in the GI tract. It does so by providing antimicrobial substances, as well as stimulating the body’s own natural defenses. The word probiotic literally means ‘for life’ – and that is exactly what they do, they help promote life. Unfortunately, our modern lifestyle works against their survival and the activity of suitable intestinal flora balance.
Factors that disrupt and destroy the good bacteria in our bodies include:
- Birth Control Pills
- NSAIDS, ASA, Indomethacin, Aspirin
- Chlorine in Water (drinking and bathing in it)
Other Factors Include:
- Well Done/Fried Foods
- Refined Sugars and Grains
- High Fructose Corn Syrup
- Hydrogenated Fats and Oils
The list goes on. These challengers make it virtually impossible to achieve balance and tend to shift the intestinal conditions into a more acidic and disease hosting environment. By supplementing with probiotics, you are stimulating natural re-colonization while depriving the bad bacteria of continued growth.
Bad bacteria = Toxins and Toxins = Disease. Eliminate its growth and eliminate the environment in which disease can flourish.
Probiotics have been shown in studies to:
- Stimulate the immune system

With regard to Gout, in particular, it has shown to help lower uric acid levels. The bowels are responsible for over 30% of uric acid elimination. Probiotics aid to improve digestion. Further, by improving digestive function and regularity, you can facilitate intensified uric acid excretion. Improved digestion will also allow the GC® Gout Care herbal blend for Gout to be properly absorbed and utilized to its maximum potential, while boosting your immune system to help expedite your cleansing and healing process.
Probiotic therapy is advantageous for all walks of life, especially in today’s modern society and lifestyle. Probiotics not only aid to maximize nutrient and supplement assimilation but are also extremely useful in providing your body with extra protection from disease in general by stimulating your own body’s natural defenses!
