Probiotics FAQs

Commonly asked questions from patients and professionals alike


Probiotics are good bacteria that are essential to overall health including digestive balance and supporting immune health*. The World Health Organization has defined probiotics as, “live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host.”


Some people may experience an increase in gas or bloating due to the higher amounts of probiotic bacteria in the digestive system. However, this should subside within a few days to a week as the body adapts to the increase in probiotic bacteria. If issues last for more than a week, we recommend reducing the amount of probiotics taken and slowly working back to the full recommended dose.


Not all probiotics are created equal. In fact, there are a number of things to consider when choosing a probiotic supplement. Quality probiotic products, such as Fortify, should:

  • Contain prebiotics, a food source for good bacteria*
  • Include researched strains at the amount clinically shown to support digestive balance and immune health*
  • Require no refrigeration
  • Guarantee potency through shelf life or expiration date, not just at time of manufacture
  • Be resistant to harsh stomach acid
  • Include full strain description on packaging
  • Clearly denote minimum potency per serving

Every serving of Fortify delivers 11 probiotic strains. Fortify is powerful ally with HN019, HN001, Bi-04®, Bi-07® researched probiotic strains in the amount researched to support digestive and immune health.* Not only that, but Fortify probiotics go through rigorous quality control procedures during the manufacturing process to ensure consumers receive a high quality product and we even go an extra step to ensure our products are Non-GMO Project verified.


Probiotics are transient ‘guests’ within the digestive tract. Therefore, it’s a great idea to make probiotics a part of a daily routine to help maintain digestive balance and support immune health.* We recommend adults and children take one capsule, chewable tablet, or powder packet per day, with or without food. If taking the gummy formula, adults chew 2 gummies per day, with or without food.


Some probiotics require refrigeration; however, Fortify probiotics are formulated to ensure best-in-class stability. When stored in a dry place, not in direct sunlight at or below 73° F / 23° C, Fortify is designed to maintain potency through the expiration date as noted on the bottom of the carton.


Many of our formulas feature prebiotics, a food source for probiotics. In addition, we offer specialized formulas for women, adults age 50+, immune defense, heart health, and mood and stress.*


CFU is an acronym that refers to “colony forming unit” and is a measurement used by microbiologists to denote the amount of active cultures, or good bacteria, found in a probiotic product. Our Fortify Everyday and Extra Strength formulas feature 30 billion and 50 billion CFUs per capsule, respectively.
