Restore Digestive and Immune Support*
Kyo-Dophilus® Fifty+ Probiotic was formulated with older adults in mind. As we age, changes to diet, activity levels, medication use and increased inflammation can cause the microflora of our GI system to diminish. Daily use of Fifty+ Probiotic can help restore good bacteria and elevate immune system effectiveness*.
The three biocompatible human strains in Fifty+ Probiotic, The Friendly Trio®, have been clinically studied to document the efficacy of these strains to support a healthy gut microbiome.*

Your gut comprises about 70% of your immune system and is critical for brain function, to balance body chemistry, and for converting nutrients into a usable form the body can absorb. When your microflora (gut bacteria) is imbalanced, your health suffers. Probiotics are important for replenishing and restoring microfloral balance. Probiotics are live microorganisms that are believed to be good for overall health, and specifically for digestive health. To help alleviate the symptoms and conditions that harmful bacteria can cause, we need to maintain our beneficial bacteria. Known as ‘friendly’ or beneficial bacteria, probiotics produce a variety of compounds, including natural lactic acids that help to inhibit the growth of the harmful bacteria, thereby preventing them from gaining a foothold and causing illness. Probiotics can be found naturally in some foods, in fermented drinks, and in supplements.
Yes. Supplementing with probiotics will re-introduce bacteria into the gut. However, this effort is futile without prebiotics, which feed the bacteria and ensure that they flourish. If you are new to probiotics, try supplementing every day to establish a healthy colony. But once it’s up and running, supplementing with prebiotics is critical to keeping bacteria healthy over time. Maintain health by supplementing with both prebiotics and probiotics regularly in order to keep the existing bacteria population intact.
Yogurt may be a healthy snack choice but, bacteria-wise, it doesn’t necessarily measure up to a comprehensive probiotic supplement. First, yogurt may not be as probiotic-rich as you think. Many yogurts on supermarket shelves are heat-treated (pasteurized) to give the products a longer shelf life which, unfortunately, kills off the live cultures. Plus, while most yogurt contains just three strains of probiotics, many supplements offer more. Finally, foods just don’t seem to have the amount of probiotics necessary to provide the benefits that supplementation can.
Most supplements are measured in milligrams. Probiotics, on the other hand, are measured in CFUs (Colony Forming Units). This refers to the amount of viable, live bacteria that are capable of dividing and forming colonies. CFU counts are generally stated in billions.
Generally speaking, most people will notice the digestive benefits within the first month of taking a probiotic. You may notice more regular bowel movements, less gas and bloating and even a better sense of well-being. If you are taking a probiotic to help alleviate antibiotic-associated diarrhea or for travelers diarrhea you likely will notice the benefits within the first few days. For those taking probiotics to help with Crohn’s, Colitis or IBS symptoms, be patient and allow at least 3 to 4 weeks to gauge the benefits. Probiotics can also support the health of the immune system and this effect could be noticed within a few months with less respiratory infections during the cold and flu season. Consistency matters so take your probiotics daily to achieve the best results.
Probiotics don’t boost the immune system per se; rather they support and modulate various aspects of immunity to achieve balance. Research suggests that probiotic supplements can help reduce the risk of respiratory tract infections, such as cold and flu. It is best to take a probiotic on a daily basis to achieve the best results.
Yes, probiotics can be taken along with other supplements. They are also safe to take with most medications. If you are taking antibiotics, separate the probiotics by at least 2 hours.
They both offer benefits for helping alleviate gas and bloating, but they differ in how they work to support digestion. Digestive enzymes help the body break down the main components of food, namely carbohydrates, protein and fat so that the nutrients can be absorbed. Digestive enzymes are produced by various organs in our body and also obtained from food. If there is inadequate digestive enzymes available, food does not get properly broken down and the undigested food particles can ferment in the colon and cause gas and bloating. A good quality digestive enzyme can assist the body in breaking down food. Probiotics provide beneficial bacteria that support our microbiome and they also play a role in supporting digestion and nutrient absorption. There are supplements that combine both digestive enzymes and probiotics in one formula.
Diarrhea is one of the most common side effects of taking antibiotics. It occurs because the antibiotics not only destroy the harmful or pathogenic bacteria but also the good/beneficial bacteria. Probiotics help alleviate diarrhea by replenishing the beneficial bacteria that is normally in the gut. Look for a probiotic that has clinically studied strains and provides a higher level of bacteria, such as 50 Billion CFUs.
