RENO, NV--(Marketwired - January 07, 2015) - Winter, and particularly the start of the New Year, mark a time to focus on revitalizing a person's health. Probiotics have become established as an important category in the nutritional supplement industry and Kirkman® supplies the most pure and effective probiotics on the market.

Approximately 100 trillion bacteria live in the human body, and generally healthy individuals have a ratio of about 85 percent good bacteria to 15 percent bad bacteria. Probiotics provide good bacteria in the gut, which help to improve gastrointestinal health, improve immune response and aid in digestion. Good bacteria also break down toxic by-products of bad bacteria, which can help alleviate various gastrointestinal problems, such as constipation. 

Kirkman® has the most rigid procedures in the industry for manufacturing, packaging, storing and shipping probiotics. The steps Kirkman® takes in formulation, shipping, manufacturing and storage provide assurance in customers receiving a fully potent, highly efficacious product with accurate strain designations.

In addition, Kirkman® guarantees its probiotics are hypoallergenic and free of common allergens. The capsule shells are made of plant cellulose in order to eliminate animal gelatin, which can be a concern to some individuals.
