Frequently Asked Questions about Flora FoodWho should use AIM FloraFood®?
Anyone concerned about digestive health should consider using AIM FloraFood®. You should definitely take it if you are undergoing or have recently undergone an antibiotics course, as antibiotics destroy friendly bacteria. Those who are traveling can also greatly benefit. Anyone exposed to stress could also benefit, since stress upsets our digestive tract.
Why doesn’t AIM FloraFood® need to be refrigerated?
The bacteria in AIM FloraFood® are stable at room temperature due to the unique and proprietary processing methods used in its manufacture. Therefore, AIM FloraFood® does not require refrigeration.
The reason other probiotics DO require refrigeration is similar to why we refrigerate our food; it slows down how quickly the probiotic spoils. However, the process is only slowed down, not suspended, and this does not guarantee that at the time of consumption, you are not taking ineffective, dead bacteria. Due to our sophisticated and careful processing method, our bacteria are dormant and do not become active until introduced to moisture, as when consumed with a liquid.
May children and pregnant and lactating women take AIM FloraFood®?
