GNC Ultra Probiotic Complex 100
Overall Rating: 4.25/5
The first thing you might have noticed is that this complex claims to contain a CFU of 100 Billion! Unfortunately, this is just a repetition of the same type of deception we have seen time after time in the supplement community: claims do not always measure up to reality!
This is not a bad product, but test results were not remotely as positive as our top rated probiotic product, BlueBiology BlueBiotics Ultimate Care. Our analysis concluded that only 27% of the colonies were still alive! However, this still means that the effective CFU level is right around 27 Billion.
What to expect from the strains
GNC Ultra Probiotic Complex is a fairly diverse probiotic blend. The benefits associated with the specific strains include: increased metabolism and moderate to high levels of weight loss; as well as a reduction in symptoms such as upset stomach, diarrhea, constipation, and any antibiotic-associated symptoms. The cultures in GNC Ultra Probiotic Complex reduce the likelihood of bacterial infections within the sinuses and throughout the digestive tract.
GNC Ultra is composed of very well-documented probiotic strains and is an effective addition to any lifestyle, capable of conferring a wide variety of health benefits.
The probiotic strains are not only diverse, they were also resilient to outside influences and, in many cases, were successful in establishing colonies within the digestive tracts of study participants. Individuals participating in our studies also reported moderate to significant weight loss.
This product is safe for pets and children, but it is always wise to consult a physician before taking any supplement if you are pregnant or nursing.
Despite the hefty CFU advertised by GNC Ultra, a large portion of the probiotic colonies were no longer alive upon analysis. This resulted in the effective CFU being roughly one third of what was claimed by the product. The result was a compromise in the integrity of the overall product, although it must be said that even at one third of the claimed value the CFU still scored well within the upper spectrum of general probiotics.
