Body Biotics mimic nature so closely as to provide the full benefits of true bacterial cultures. GMO free, toxin free, chemical free, nutrient rich host medium. They are naturally dehydrated (not freeze-dried), rendered dormant as in nature, and waiting to be ingested with an aqueous solution so they can, once again, thrive. Once thriving, they provide the same bio-identical health benefits we used to enjoy before the introduction of harsh chemicals into our farming world in the mid-1950s. Body Biotics are dormant, alive and thriving in their own natural Prebiotics ancestral food source. They DO NOT have a finite number. When activated with water or juice, these"alive and thriving" organisms, trained in nature to withstand the harshest of environments, awaken and begin immediately to multiply. Therefore, listing a CFU amount on the Body Biotics label would be inaccurate and misleading. Each individual will experience a multiplication of the number of organisms in one capsule of Body Biotics.
