Bright Nutrition Vegan Probiotic 8 is a shelf stable probiotic with 8 different species of beneficial bacteria to promote gastrointestinal health and immune system function. FOS is also included in this product to assist healthy growth of acidophilus and bifidus organisms. The probiotic is also enteric coated which allows for the product to deliver its microflora directly to the intestine, bypassing the harsh acidic conditions of the stomach.
Each capsule contains 11 billion live organisms at time of manufacture. Store the bottle in a cool dry place.

Probiotics are measured in colony forming units (CFU). CFUs are generally measured in the millions or billions per serving. Probiotics are most commonly beneficial bacteria, but can also be friendly fungal or other organisms, that are typically freeze dried to stabilize them in an inert state during storage and production. Then their continued stability and viability, as measured by CFU counts when cultured, is dependent on limiting their exposure to stimulating environmental conditions such as warmth and moisture. Besides refrigeration, this protection can be done by packaging in glass, as well as by adding freshness packets that help to absorb and reduce moisture in the package.
Temperature plays a role in the stability of probiotics. Colder air holds less moisture and is not in the ideal temperature range for the bacteria to commonly grow and thrive, thus inhibiting reactivation of the dormant organisms by depriving them of the warmth and moisture that represent their ideal growing conditions. High heat can also degrade the viability of these organisms.
Even under ideal storage conditions, the number of colony forming units will slowly decline as months go on. For example, a typical number is a drop of 5% per month when packed in glass and non-refrigerated. Refrigeration will prolong the potency and viability of most probiotics to maintain higher counts over a longer period of time.
