doTERRA PB Assist+ Probiotic - 2 Pack
It’s no secret probiotics are great for your gut. With them, your digestive system (not to mention your immune system) can function at its best. The prebiotics and probiotics in PB Assist+ encourage good bacteria growth in your gastrointestinal tract. PB Assist+ can also support optimal metabolism and better absorption of food nutrients. The capsule is specifically designed with a time-release, double-layered system to protect the probiotics from stomach acid.
PB Assist+ combines a proprietary formula of prebiotic fiber and six strains of probiotic microorganisms in a unique double-layer vegetable capsule. It delivers six billion CFUs of active probiotic cultures and soluble prebiotic fructooligosaccharides (FOS) that encourage friendly bacterial growth. The timed-release double-capsule delivery system protects the sensitive probiotic cultures from stomach acid, meaning PB Assist+ safely and effectively delivers the well-recognized digestive and immune benefits of probiotics.
Your 25-foot gastrointestinal (GI) tract is responsible for digesting and absorbing nutrients from food, while also eliminating waste from your body. The GI tract—particularly the intestines—also performs important immune functions. A healthy intestinal tract is critical for optimal digestive and immune function.

Q: Why do I need six strains and 6 billion CFUs of probiotics?
A: Having six unique strains helps promote healthy colonization and function of microflora. They support healthy digestive and immune functions throughout the intestines. Each of these unique strains has been demonstrated to have superior
propensity for intestinal adhesion and colonization. Six billion CFUs provide a beneficial amount of good bacteria in each capsule.
Q: What is the difference between probiotics and prebiotics?
A: Prebiotics are indigestible fibers that are found in fruits and vegetables and have the ability to selectively promote the growth of friendly bacteria while discouraging the growth of less friendly intestinal microbes. Probiotics are microorganisms that support healthy colonies of friendly microflora in the gut.
Q: Why are probiotics and prebiotics separated by an inner and outer capsule?
A: This unique delivery system is designed to help ensure the live active cultures will be released in the small intestine. The outer capsule must be dissolved, the FOS prebiotic fiber suspended in a thick viscous fluid must be dissolved away in the digestive fluid, and then the inner capsule must dissolve.
Q: Does the green inner capsule have any synthetic colorants?
A: The green color in the PB Assist+ inner capsule comes from chlorophyll, the all-natural green pigment found in all plants.
Q: Should I take PB Assist+ at the same time that I take GX Assist®?
A: We recommend using GX Assist for ten days (three capsules per day with meals) followed by PB Assist+ for ten days (three capsules), then PB Assist+ (one capsule per day) after that.
Q: Do I need to keep PB Assist+ refrigerated?
A: Although it is best to keep PB Assist+ out of the heat, it is not necessary to refrigerate. PB Assist+ is tested for shelf life and stability and will retain its activity level when stored under normal conditions. Dry probiotic cultures such as the ones used in our PB Assist+ capsules are not activated until they are released in the gut and exposed to moisture.
Q: Is PB Assist safe for everyone to take?
A: Yes, PB Assist+ is safe to use for all members of your family.
