OLLY Probiotic is a probiotic that is made to be gentle on your stomach and to help restore healthy digestion. It is made with a patented fermentation process that helps it survive the harsh digestive environment of your small intestine, which means it can’t be killed by acid. This bacteria has been shown to reduce lactose intolerance and lessen the severity of digestive problems such as bloating, constipation, IBS, diarrhea, and ulcerative colitis.
Characteristics of OLLY Probiotic
1. Time-Release Cap
The patented time-release cap on the OLLY Probiotic bottle provides a long time for the bacteria to be exposed to your stomach, called the gastric phase. This is why it can survive in the acidic conditions of your stomach.
2. Patented Fermentation Process
Many probiotics are created with a simple milk fermentation process, which ends up destroying many of the good bacteria because they are killed off by the harsh digestive environment in your small intestine where absorption takes place. The patented fermentation process used by OLLY Probiotic creates a totally different environment, allowing them to survive and then continue thriving as they are released in your intestines – called the intestinal phase.
Even though the release of the OLLY Probiotic occurs very slowly, it remains in your small intestine for over a month. This means that the bacteria in OLLY Probiotic have time to thrive before they leave your body, so you may see benefits from taking them for longer than a few weeks at a time.
4. No Refrigeration Required
Unlike other probiotics, which need to be refrigerated after opening, OLLY Probiotic is shelf-stable and can be used right away.
The OLLY Probiotic strain called the AMALAKI strain is used to help with IBS symptoms such as bloating, constipation, and diarrhea. This can help decrease the pain and discomfort you feel from these problems.
