NF's Spectra Probiotic provides eight specially selected strains of microflora. Each capsule contains billions of bacteria in NF's unique protein matrix coating. This coating protects each of the individual bacteria from harsh stomach acids and digestive juices so it can get to the intestines where it was intended to go. When antibiotics are used many practitioners forget the second half of the equation and leave out the probiotics that help re-establish the good bacteria that were killed off with the bad. Without a Probiotic many women find that yeast proliferate beyond control and can lead to sore nipples, intra-ductal inflammation and possibly mastitis. Truly an ounce of prevention here is worth well over a pound of cure!
