Choose Alflorex® Choose Freedom
PrecisionBiotics® cultures are elite bacterial strains. It is the specific strain of bacteria, not the genus or species, that determines its effect. The unique 35624® culture is a Bifidobacteria, part of the B. infantis family, and has been specially selected for targeted action.
Alflorex® is a food supplement with the unique  35624® culture. Alflorex® can help you reclaim your freedom to travel, eat out and enjoy life without interruption.
Alflorex® is the only product in Europe that contains the targeted 35624® culture, part of the B.infantis family. The 35624® culture was isolated from a healthy human colon and has been extensively characterised and tested by scientists, clinicians and gastroenterologists at Alimentary Health Ltd and the APC Microbiome Institute at University College Cork, Ireland. University College Cork is among the world’s leading institutions in gut health. The 35624®culture is backed by over 15 years of research and over 75 publications.
The 35624® culture in Alflorex® will disappear from your gut very soon after you stop taking it. Take Alflorex® daily as part of a healthy lifestyle. When starting, take Alflorex® for 4 weeks to prime your gut and continue to use it thereafter. In a small minority of cases the 35624® culture may take longer than 4 weeks to prime your gut, sometimes up to 12 weeks. If you think this might be the case for you please feel free to contact us . If you stop taking Alflorex®, it will completely leave your system within two weeks.
You may experience temporary changes in bowel habits as you begin to take Alflorex®, but it is important to stick with it! It is recommended that you take Alflorex® every day for 4 weeks in order to prime your gut and then continue to use on a daily basis as part of a healthy lifestyle.

During clinical studies, participants took the 35624® culture in the morning. However many customers take it at different times of the day. Taking it consistently on a daily basis is the most important thing. We recommend that you take Alflorex® as part of your daily routine, at a time that will be easy to remember, such as when you take your usual vitamins or medications.
