Most probiotic supplements are made from fragile, lactic-acid based organisms. Prescript-Assist is different.

Be Confident Your Probiotic Supplement Will Deliver
Why worry whether your probiotic contains adequate, living flora sufficient to improve your health?
Unlike fragile probiotics that require refrigeration and novel, untested manufacturing techniques to be effective, Prescript-Assist™ is a proprietary formulation of 29 naturally resilient strains that support your body's natural intestinal balance.
It's time to move past the stranglehold of lactic-acid based bacteria to a next generation of stronger, inherently viable strains.3 The Prescript-Assist solution is convenient, traditionally-derived, and clinically proven to enhance GI health and promote a healthy balance of good bacteria in the gut.
Why do we need probiotics?
When your GI tract isn’t functioning at peak performance, you may experience the following signs of occasional GI distress:
- Abdominal discomfort/bloating
- Irregular bowel patterns
- Feeling “out of sorts” (malaise)
GI distress can be the result of an imbalance in the makeup of healthy bacteria found in your intestines.
And ongoing medical studies continue to reveal the importance of gut-friendly bacteria for daily health. From immune stimulation to vitamin production to anti-microbial agents and even emotional health, the good bacteria in our digestive system play an important part in how our body stays healthy and performs.4, 5
Introducing the Human Microbiome
Researchers have now learned that the number of bacterial cells in our bodies is more than 10 times the number of human cells. This collection of living cells is essentially an extension of our own bodies, and has been labeled the "human microbiome" by medical scientists.6, 7
Perhaps unsurprisingly, it has also become clear that the number and types of species found in the gut spell the difference between an optimal digestive and immune system and an unhealthy one. Individuals with higher levels of gastrointestinal distress and gut irregularities have been found to have a correspondingly lower variety of helpful bacteria in the intestines.8
“Individuals with higher levels of GI distress have been found to have a lower variety of helpful bacteria in the intestines.”
What's wrong with other probiotic supplements?
Most probiotic supplements on the market today rely on 1 or 2 strains of fragile, lactic-acid based bacteria. Prescript-Assist is different.
Basic Viability vs. Engineered Delivery
Unlike other probiotics, Prescript-Assist has inherent viability. That means the species selected for inclusion are naturally adapted for survival in the human GI tract. Among the 29 beneficial organisms found in Prescript-Assist are a class of bacteria commonly referred to as "spore-formers".
Dr. Mehmet Oz of the well-known Dr. Oz Show has said:
"Spore form probiotics are the Chuck Norris of probiotics: total tough guys."9
While other manufacturers struggle to invent novel manufacturing techniques such as patented nano-encapsulation and hard-shelled enteric-coated capsules in an attempt to essentially "force feed" lactic-acid based organisms into survival, the environmentally based (SBO) species included in Prescript-Assist are selected from the terrestrial microbiome where they have prospered and adapted for millenia to beneficially co-exist with humans.
Benefits of Prescript-Assist
Unlike other probiotic supplements, Prescript-Assist™ is a synergistic blend of not one or two, but a full 29 probiotic strains, specifically chosen to mimic the natural flora found in traditional and paleolithic diets.10, 11 But Prescript-Assist goes further.
Human clinical research — including a published peer-reviewed, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial — shows that Prescript-Assist:
- Replenishes healthy GI microflora*
- Promotes a healthy gastro-intestinal environment*
- Relieves occasional abdominal discomfort and bloating*
- Alleviates occasional indigestion and nausea*
- Promotes a normal bowel pattern*
- Reduces flatulence*
- Supports overall wellness and vitality*
Available through healthcare practitioners, Prescript-Assist is a next-generation, clinically proven probiotic supplement that is unlike any other probiotic on the market — supported by peer-reviewed clinical studies, and inherently acid-resistant and shelf-stable without refrigeration.
