Progressive HCP 70 Full Sectrum Probiotic Details

High Potency Probiotic

HCP70 (Human Colonizing Probiotic, 70 Billion Cells) is a High Potency Probiotic supplement featuring 6 human strains that implant healthy flora throughout the entire digestive tract. It has also been cryoprotected and a family of stabilizing support nutrients has been added to help ensure the viability of the flora.

Benefits of Progressive HCP 70 Full Sectrum Probiotic:

  • Improves intestinal health
  • Supports immune function
  • Increases absorption of vitamins and minerals
  • Healthier skin through the reduction of acne, eczema and psoriasis
  • Prevention and treatment of vaginal and urinary tract infections
  • Reduced symptoms of Dysbiosis (imbalance between good and bad bacteria)
  • Reduced fatigue
  • Reduced Distention, bloating and flatulence
  • Reduced constipation and diarrhea
  • Improved digestion
  • Reduced Hypoglycemia
  • Reduced food allergies
  • Reduced lactose intolerance
  • Reduced Leaky Gut Syndrome

Progressive HCP 70 Full Sectrum Probiotic Features:

  • Complete GI tract protection
  • 70 billion active cells
  • 100% human strains
  • All colonizing flora
  • Cryoprotected for greater stability

The Progressive Advantage

High Potency
HCP70 provides 70 billion active cells (per 2 capsules) at time of expiry. Current research has shown that probiotic formulas with more strain variety and higher potencies offer greater activity and overall health benefits.

All Human Strain
HCP70 contains 100% human strains. Human microflora is, by far, the most compatible with your digestive system. It has the ability to colonize and multiply within the gastrointestinal tract whereas other forms (dairy and plant) sometimes fail to stick to the intestinal wall or simply die off after ingestion.

Entire GI Tract Protection
HCP70 is specifically designed to inhabit and protect the entire length of the GI tract. The Lactobacilli (Rhamnosus, Acidophilus and Salivarius) primarily colonize within the small intestine, while the Bifidobacteria (Breve, Bifidum and Longum) are most prevalent within the large intestine. Consideration was also given to ensure oral and vaginal probiotic health. 

Optimum Stability

HCP70 Probiotic is manufactured using a cryoprotective process that ensures the viability of the flora. This cold temperature process removes all the available moisture and microencapsulates the strains for optimum stability. It is further enhanced by the addition of a family of stabilizing support nutrients that contribute to the longevity of the active cells.

Solani Amylum and Silica – act as natural desiccants helping to keep the moisture content as low as possible.

Magnesium Stearate (plant source) – a natural lubricant that reduces the creation of heat during the encapsulation process which would otherwise damage the sensitive micro flora.

Vitamin C – reduces oxidation which preserves and extends the lifespan of the probiotics.

Vegetable Capsules – have a lower water activity level than standard gelatin capsules helping to maintain a moisture free environment. While the above measures have a profound impact on the lifespan of the microflora allowing it to withstand room temperature for prolonged periods of time, we still recommend that you refrigerate HCP70 Probiotic whenever possible.

HCP70 Probiotic Is Not Enteric Coated
Some debate exists on whether enteric coating a probiotic supplement will reduce the amount of gastric damage following ingestion. Fermented foods have been acting as our primary source of dietary probiotics for centuries without being enteric coated. As well, enteric coatings typically use a polymer of acrylic acid (a synthetic chemical) which conflicts with HCP70 Probiotic's all natural approach. During a meal our stomach pH increases and becomes more alkaline (between pH3 and pH4.5). The strains in HCP70 Probiotic are acid tolerant and can be exposed to a gastric solution in this range without suffering any bacterial loss, eliminating the need for enteric coating. We simply encourage you to take HCP70 Probiotic with food.

    How did you use it?:Everyday,Before Bed

    "I have been a fan of this probiotic supplement for almost a year now, for the first 6 months I took 2 a day, one after breakfast and one after dinner, I felt a difference within 24 hours of my first dose! This stuff has significantly reduced my bloating, flatulence, and constipation. My whole digestive system has improved in general. If I skip a day or two because I'm in between bottles, my body misses it immediately. I'm not a fan of loading up on supplements but this one is worth the price, even though pricey. You gotta eat a lot of yogurt, kombucha, miso soup, kefir, sauerkraut, and kimchi to get 70 billion active cells hahaha!"

    "The best probiotic supplement I've tried - it really works a treat. I also tried the "Synbiotic" kit from Progressive which includes a prebiotic as well, but I find it unnecessary - this product alone works very well for me. Progressive supplements appear to be of particularly high quality."
