Identification:ŚćThis testing ensures that the raw material that is received is exactly what is indicated and ordered. Yeast and Mold:ŚćThis test ensures that yeast and mold are not present. Total Aerobic Count:ŚćThis test determines that bacteria levels in the raw material are below the allowable limits. E-Coli, Salmonella, Staphylococcus aureus:ŚćThis test determines that these three items are not detectable in raw material.

Finished Product Testing Once production is complete, the Quality Control Department takes samples of product from each lot number and sends them to a third party laboratory for final confirmatory testing. Finished products are tested for: Potency:ŚćThe same methods are used as in raw material testing; only now, the finished product may require multiple potency tests for each ingredient, depending on the formulation. Identification:ŚćIn the finished product, certain ingredient markers are used to ensure that potency has been met. Weight Variation:ŚćUsing a representative sample of the finished product, the weights are recorded and the average is obtained. The weight variation from the average must match the finished product specification (which is approved by Health Canada). Disintegration:ŚćThis test determines how long it will take for a tablet or capsule to disintegrate once swallowed. This must match the limits as per their finished product specification. Yeast and Mold:ŚćThis test ensures that yeast and mold are not present in the final product. Total Aerobic Count:ŚćThis test determines that bacteria levels in the final product are below the allowable limits. E-Coli, Salmonella, Staphylococcus aureus:ŚćThis test determines that these three items are not detectable in the finished product. Heavy Metals:ŚćThis testing ensures that heavy metals (mercury, arsenic, cadmium, and lead) are not present in quantities that are above the acceptable range.

FloraSMART EXTRA STRENGTH is a therapeutic strength probiotic. ItŚćis formulated to provideŚć6 different strains ofŚćäóÖgood bacteriaäó» to the intestinal tract and colon. FloraSMART EXTRA STRENGTH is designed for those whoŚćare travelling and want to protect themselves againstŚćparasites and travellersäó» diarrhea, or for those who haveŚćdigestive issues that are under control. FloraSMART EXTRA STRENGTH works to ensure that the bacterial environment in the intestine and colon is at an optimal level for good health. ItŚćcontains a blend ofŚć6 probiotics which helps to ensure a healthy bacterial environment in the intestinal tract and colon. FloraSMART EXTRA STRENGTH is different from all other probiotics on the market in that it uses the BIO-tractŚ¬Śćadvanced delivery system. BIO-tractŚ¬Śćdelivery technology protects the probiotics through the harsh environment of the stomach and delivers them into the intestinal tract where they can be utilized. No other probiotic can make this claim. Recent research shows that probiotics help to improve gastrointestinal functions, respiratory and allergy responses; as well as help to counter the negative effects of antibiotic use. Probiotics support the immune system, balance the intestinal environment, and inhibit the growth of pathogenic organisms (ex. Candida albacans). Further, these beneficial bacteria help the body to: produce vitamins digest foods control overgrowth of bad bacteria and fungus. What is FloraSMART EXTRA STRENGTH? FloraSMART EXTRA STRENGTH is a maintenance probiotic for those with chronic intestinal complaints that are currently under control. It is a patented blend of probiotics which is formulated to provide äóÖfriendly bacteriaäó» to the intestinal tract and colon. This helps to ensure that the bacterial environment in the intestine and colon is at an optimal level for good health. It does not require refrigeration which makes it an ideal product to take on trips in order to avoid travellersäó» diarrhea and parasites. How is it delivered? FloraSMART EXTRA STRENGTH uses BIO-tractŚ¬Śćdelivery technology which is engineered to deliver probiotics to their optimal location in the intestinal tract. BiotractTM is a patented, controlled delivery technology developed specifically for micro organisms. The BIO-tractŚ¬Śćprotective layer ensures the product is less susceptible to heat, moisture, and oxidative stress, making FloraSMART EXTRA STRENGTH more stable at room temperature. How does it work? FloraSMART EXTRA STRENGTH uses the BIO-tractŚ¬Śćdelivery technology, which delivers probiotics through the harsh environment of the stomach and into the intestinal tract where they can be utilized. After swallowing the FloraSMART EXTRA STRENGTH tablet, a protective gel layer surrounds the tablet and effectively isolates the bacteria (probiotics) to reduce harmful interaction with the acidic environment in the stomach. Once passing through the stomach, it releases the probiotics in a controlled fashion over time, delivering the living bacteria to the small intestines so that it can populate throughout the intestinal tract. This is different than other probiotic supplements, where the majority of the probiotics are destroyed in the stomach, leaving very little left to be delivered to the intestinal tract. What can I expect? FloraSMART EXTRA STRENGTH can help to keep bowel movements regular. Many people notice an overall feeling of good health.
