Product Label

  • High Bifido Acute Care Probiotic
  • 50 Billion Active Live Cultures per capsule
  • 10 Probiotic Strains
  • Relieves Digestive Discomfort**
  • Supports Natural Defenses**
  • Allergen Free
  • Potency Garunteed Until Expiration

  • One a Day
  • Contains no yeast, wheat, gluten, soy, corn, salt, dairy, binders, fillers or artificial ingredients.
  • The Ultimate Flora Probiotic Difference
  • Higher Potency
  • Ultimate Flora Critical Care 50 Billion™ is a therapeutic-strength one-a-day probiotic specially formulated for people with acute care needs. Each capsule contains 50 billion active cultures of 10 strains of beneficial flora, more than most other intensive care probiotics.**
  • Superior health Begins in the Digestive System: More than 70 percent of our body's natural defenses are found in the digestive tract, where beneficial flora called probiotics work to:
  • Promote Regularity**
  • Help Restore Digestive Balance**
  • Enhance Natural Defenses**
  • Crowd Out Harmful Microbes**
  • High Bifido for Optimal Benefits:
  • Bifidobacteria are the most prevalent type of good bacteria in a healthy colon (or large intestine). They play a vital role in promoting digestive health and supporting the body's defenses.**
  • In middle age, our level of Bifidobacteria declines. This has been linked to increased digestive disorders and a decline in overall health. Ulitmate Flora Critical Care 50 Billion contains 30 billion Bifidobacteria to replenish healthy flora and more closely represent the ratio of Bifido to Lactobacilli found in the digestive system.**

    This probiotic has been an incredible godsend. When combined with plain yogurt daily, it cured severe constipation that persisted for over a year, after a surgery that necessitated multiple courses of antibiotics that killed off all the friendly flora. At one point, my doc even had sent me to a GI surgeon, who was talking about the possibility of an ileostomy (surgical removal of the colon) because the constipation was so bad. Yikes! An alternative medicine doctor suggested probiotics, but the problem is that different formulations work for different people. This is the seventh one I tried. Apparently, this one is higher in Bifidobacteria which are prevalent in the colon, as opposed to Lactobacilli which are prevalent in the small intestine. With age, the Bifidobacteria decline. With plain yogurt, this works extremely well for me. This is so much healthier than laxatives, which make your colon lazy in the long run. YMMV. I wanted to thank the previous reviewer, Morts, whose positive review made me consider this probiotic in the first place. The price is a little high, but saving my colon function is worth it.

    I don't know if this product is good or not because I did not notice a difference. But then again I used it to maintain since I have a very healthy lifestyle. The only problem I now have with "refrigerated" probiotics is that they no longer function as intended when in contact with our 98.6 natural body heat because they are "alive" when refrigerated or cold. My understanding in order for they to do as intended probiotics need to be encapsulated or extracted when "alive" and with their food source in order for they to "thrive" when in contact with our body heat otherwise they die and not colonize.

    >> A Vitamin Shoppe Customer commented on this review on 2012-02-13
    this isn't exactly true. These probiotics aren't even shipped to the vitamin shoppe refrigerated. Some companies just prefer them refrigerated to maintain maximum viability. Just don't leave them in extreme heat.

                Within 24 hours of taking this product, I noticed a huge difference. I had been taking the Renew Life 15 billion, but that didn't seem to help with the bowel flora as I needed it to. After taking the RL50 billion, the next morning, everything "moved along" quite well. I will definitely be reordering as needed! This product is pricey, but it is worth it!

                    This is the only thing that worked to combat the side effects from very strong antibiotics for my husband. Nothing else worked for 'explosive diarhea'. Pepto Bismol Imodiam AD and the strongest A.D. remedies didn't work. Has been good for maintaining normal digestive health as well.

                    I had my annual physical a week ago, and told the doctor that I was taking this product and why. I asked him how long I could stay on it, and his answer was "Forever, if you'd like. Probiotics are great!" So for anyone who is wondering if it is safe to take such a potent probiotic long-term, my doctor, at least, says "Yes!"

                      I had a nasty stomach virus that lasted for a week with bad cramping and nausea. During that week, the only thing that gave me relief was Pepto Bismol, and I took all 4 allowed doses per day! After the worst of it passed, I was left completely stopped up, and my stomach had bloated to the point that I looked pregnant. A friend recommended probiotics, and after doing some Web research into the best ones for my problem and reading reviews by users, I chose this one. What a difference it has made! The cramping disappeared entirely within 48 hours, and my digestion and elimination has returned almost to normal. The bloating has also subsided, and as a plus, I have much less gas than I have ever had normally. Now, I'm just trying to find out whether it is something that is safe to be on long-term, or whether I should wean off of it after a week or so.

                      I was having serious issues with digestion, bloating, gas and actually ordered this product from another vendor - the price was the same, but I didn't want to wait until Wednesday or Thursday of next week to receive it. Needed relief immediately and when I saw the reviews of the product I had to give it a try. Visited my local Vitamin Shoppe and got a 30 day supply. Took a capsule Saturday at 10:30 and felt better within the hour. The rest of my weekend went well. Drinking lots of water and exercising helps also, not to mention avoiding those "trigger" foods, but before I tried this product nothing else worked.

                      Ultimate Flora has been great for me so far although I know it's early. I highly recommend it none the less and if you have similar symptoms as I and have time, check out their website. Very interesting info about digestive issues in general.

                          I have been using this product for over 6 months. I love it! I would always suffer from travelers constipation and would one go to the restroom once every other day! Since I have been using this product I go three times a day like I used to when I was a kid. I recommend this to everyone who is not regular and wants to live a healthier life. I wish it wasn't so expensive I would get some for my kids. this product makes me feel young again.

                                  Comments about Renew Life Ultimate Flora 50 Billion - 60 Capsules:

                                  I caught C. Diff in the hospital and fought it with flagyl antibiotic. The doctor started me on acidophilus, but it did not stop the C. Diff problems. I found this product and used it daily to stop the C. Diff problems. It works. When I am feeling fine, I go off it, but I start taking it again at the first signs of symptoms.

                                  A Vitamin Shoppe customer asked: I read that most probiotics are dead by the time they reach your gut. They either die on the shelf or the gut acids kill most of them before they are able to do any good. What does this product have that prevents that? I read that microencapsulation works but I don't see that this product has done that. Apr 26, 2014

                                  Kuei-chih L: This product has a special coating which allow the capsule to pass through the stomach juice to reach the intestines. For added assurance, I drink two table spoons of fresh lemon juice in a quarter glass of distilled water, wait for ~10 minutes and take the capsule. The lemon juice will cause the gut to become alkaline and it will not be hostile to the flora. one may want to do this with a empty stomach and take a cup of flora rich yogurt afterward. May 1, 2014

                                  Donald W: With regard to shelf-life and whether or not the probiotics are dead before they hit the intestines, I have no insight to pass along. But I can tell you that Ultimate Flora is always refrigerated: at Vitamin Shoppe it is sold right out of the refrigerator and my wife and I keep it in our fridge all the time. I can also tell you that Critical Care (50 Billion) has helped me to avoid many, many colds over the past few winters since we started buying it. Ordinarily I'd get two or three colds over the course of one winter--but now, whenever the symptoms begin to appear, I take a "50 billion" as we call it. In fact, if I even just sneeze or cough, my wife says "Go get yourself a 50 billion--right now!" So I guess I can say: "This product works for me!" Apr 27, 2014

                                  Mary G: I have used many probiotics including some that "went beyond the gut", but this product has been one of the best because of the number of bacteria and the types. I have recommended this product to several friends and we all love it. Remember to refrigerate it after you open it as that preserves the product. Hope this helps. Apr 26, 2014

                                  I do know that a supplement that works for one person may not work for another. All I can speak to is the fact that this supplement works extremely well for me.

                                  Gale P: This product is refrigerated at the store to help keep it fresh and as long as you keep it refrigerated also, it will help keep it fresh. My doctor recommend the refrigerated 50 billion probiotic for me to use. Apr 26, 2014

                                  Elaine D: Hi Caryn,
                                  It depends on the condition of your digestive/elimination systems when you begin taking it. I had already been taking another probiotic for many years. But, when I was diagnosed with a lung infection and had to start taking a three antibiotic cocktail, I started taking Ultimate Flora at the same time. For me, it pretty much worked in the first week. I was on the antibiotics for seven months and my bowels were functioning even better than they were before and I never got a yeast infection or any other problems that antibiotics usually cause. Best of luck!

                                  Kuei-chih L: It takes a week or so if the conditions are good for the flora to survive in the gut. As the stomach secretions are lethal to the flora, one must help to create an environment more friendly to it. I found it work better when I took the capsule with an empty stomach, and I think it is better if I take it with a cup of non-fat plain cultured yogurt along at the same time. One may want to create an alkaline gut by taking fresh lemon juice to clean out the bad germs. Mar 29, 2013

                                  Jane W: Depending on the state of your health you may see a difference within a couple days to a week. I take daily to maintain optimal immune support and have been free of sickness all winter. Mar 30, 2013

                                  Michelle L: Yes, the ultimate flora should stay cold as the potency diminishes in non-frigde temperatures. However, I think there's still some benefit if left out in room temparature over short periods of time (e.g. going on vacation for a week) Feb 11, 2014

                                  Wendy S: I wouldn't worry about it being too much. The problem is too little probiotics to kill the fungi and bacteria. FDA? They like unhealthy small doses that are not enough for wellness. Dec 10, 2013
