Nordic Naturals debuts allergen-free, vegetarian probiotic

Non-GMO Nordic Probiotic combines 12 billion live cultures, including Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS-1, with prebiotics to promote digestive health.

Nordic Naturals introduces Nordic Probiotic™, an allergen-free probiotic that contains no dairy, wheat, gluten, corn or soy. Packaged in 60-count bottles, the vegetarian capsules can be used by everyone, including individuals with digestive issues or food sensitivities. Nordic Probiotic is 100 percent vegetarian and non-GMO. This highly stable formulation requires no refrigeration, making it a great option for travel and those on the go.

Nordic Probiotic combines 12 billion live cultures—including Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS-1—with prebiotics to help support the growth of friendly bacteria while promoting digestive system balance. “This is important for 20 percent of Americans who experience some type of digestive discomfort regularly,” says Keri Marshall, MS, ND, chief medical officer of Nordic Naturals.

According to Marshall, “The current standard American diet, along with therapies that diminish our intestinal flora, warrant maintaining healthy levels of bacteria in the gut. This high-quality probiotic supports not only the gastrointestinal tract, but also healthy immune function. Taking a quality probiotic can be an important part of a daily wellness program.”

For optimal benefit, Nordic Probiotic can be combined with any Nordic Naturals omega-3 product. 

Nordic Naturals specializes in omega-3 essential fatty acids, which are foundational to optimal health. The company also offers a handful of specialty products that complement the health benefits of omega-3s and overall wellness. Dr. Marshall notes, “Just as omega-3s are integral to cellular health, probiotics are foundational to digestive health.”
