Q. How is the adhering ability (adhering to the intestine walls) determined in Life 9™?
A. The strains chosen for Life 9™ were chosen for their ability to adhere properly to the walls of the intestines. While other companies may choose to use lower cost alternatives, Young Living® only uses the finest quality ingredients and products and will settle for nothing less.
Q. How many cultures are in Life 9™?
A. There is a minimum of 17 billion CFUs (colony forming unit) in Life 9™ at the time of manufacture.
Q. Does Life 9™ contains 17 billion live cultures per capsule or in each bottle?
A. Life 9™ ™ contains at least 17 billion live cultures per capsule at the time of manufacture.
Q. How can you assure me that the strains in Life 9™ are “live”?
A. The bacteria strains in Life 9™ have been freeze dried, which means that they have been frozen in suspended animation. When you take a capsule of Life 9™, the bacteria become exposed to water, which in turn, reanimates them. Once they reach your gut, they are living bacteria.
Q. How do I know that 17 billion live cultures are enough for me?
A. Probiotic supplements in the market offer a range from 1 billion to 10 billion strains. The amount of strains needed by an individual varies according to one’s previous conditions and current health. Life 9™ offers at least 17 billion live cultures to ensure everyone can benefit from taking it. Although the amount sounds high, probiotics are safe and one cannot be harmed by taking extra.
Q. Why isn’t Life 9™ refrigerated before opening, like most of the probiotics in the stores?
A. Life 9™ is vacuum sealed and packaged to provide optimal protection (glass bottle, plastisol lined metal lid, delayed release capsule, and desiccant). This packaging protects the strains during shipping conditions as well.
It is recommended that you refrigerate Life 9™ after opening.
Additional questions that were asked on my Facebook page
Q: Does Life 9 contain dairy?
A: No it does not contain any dairy.
Q: Can I continue to consume Life 9 once opened without refrigerated for 10 days? Didn’t know about refrigeration.
A: When traveling my Life 9 is not refrigerated. The delicate probiotics lose potency when not refrigerated, so the longer they are out, the less effective the supplement is.
