Probiotic Max tablets


  • For healthy digestion
  • Over 5 billion ‘friendly’ bacteria
  • With Acidophilus and FOS


A healthy digestive system


The human digestive system contains around 3.3 lbs of bacteria, some of which are essential for the maintenance of good health, while others can be harmful. The digestive system is designed to naturally balance the levels of good and bad bacteria, and maintain good health. However, poor nutrition and high stress levels can cause the level of bad bacteria to become overwhelming.


Supporting your ‘good’ bacteria


Probiotic Max can be beneficial in topping up the level of good bacteria and promoting an efficient digestive system. Friendly bacteria form colonies in the digestive tract, mainly the small/large intestine, which help to improve digestive health and strengthen the immune system. Probiotic Max also provides beneficial levels of Fructooligosaccharide (FOS) - a soluble dietary fibre that helps to promote good digestion. FOS is easy for the body to break down and helps to feed good bacteria present in the digestive tract, stimulating their growth.


Why choose Probiotic Max?


This expert formulation has been developed to harness all the benefits of the ‘good’ bacteria it contains. Each high strength tablet provides over 5 billion colony forming units (CFU’s). Probiotic Max also incorporates beneficial levels of Fructooligosaccharide (FOS), which has been well researched for its ability to support 'good' bacteria in the digestive tract. As a result, this advanced combination has become one of our best selling digestive health supplements.

    Q: Hi, I have IBS and get constipation as well as diarrhoea, at the moment I'm getting sore heads, sore limbs, sore abdomen after I eat and I'm not sleeping well either. Would this probiotic address all of these symptoms?


    A: This product should be able to help with these symptoms, as it should help you maintain a healthy digestive system. Supplements can take a few weeks sometimes to integrate into your system properly, so you should be able to see the benefits within a few weeks. If this product does not work, you can always contact us on where one of our advisers can recommend an alternative product which you may find more suitable. Please be aware however, that we are not medically trained, therefore if you do have any specific concerns, we suggest that you contact your local pharmacist or GP prior to taking any supplements.

    Q: I have bought these but unless I am missing it there is no recommended time of day to take these, many pro biotics are supposed to be taken on an empty stomach, or last thing at night.
    A: There is no recommended time to take the Probiotic Max, it is entirely up to the customer. However, many of our customers that take this supplement, find it better to take one in the morning and one in the evening, alongside food. It is a case of what works best for you.

    Q: Hi - I have read a lot in the Mail regarding probiotic tablets and that they are good for the digestive system as well as blood pressure. Would it be ok to take probiotic tablets as I am on blood pressure tablets and also warfarin daily. Regards

    Q: Are these only suitable for adults or can children take them too? My boys 8 and 13 have a probiotic drink every day but these would be useful when on holidays etc.
    A: This supplement is mainly for adults consumption. We advice checking with a GP or pharmacist before giving this to children under the age of 16. Some children have very sensitive stomach and may not respond well to certain ingredients even if they are from natural source.

    I'm looking to take a probiotic supplement to help me feel less sluggish, but I'm a little confused between your Probiotic Max and your Super Probio Complex. What are the main differences between these products and which would best suit my needs?


    Our Probiotic Max contains one strain of 'friendly' bacteria (Acidophilus) and a prebiotic (FOS) to encourage the growth of 'friendly' bacteria in the digestive system. This product is popularly taken as a daily supplement to support general health, wellbeing and vitality.

    Our Super  ProBio Complex contains nine different strains of 'friendly' bacteria and is one of the strongest probiotic supplements available in the UK. This product is often taken by customers with specific digestive problems or ailments.

    Q: I suffer from sinusitus with bad headaches, blocked ears, pains in the head and headaches as well as very low mental and physical energy. Also find it hard to concentrate and poor short term memory. The doctor gives me anti biotics and steroids sometimes which make me feel well but a week later it is bck to square one and not able to do anything. Now wondering if I have candida (I do not get IBS or bad stomach or indigestion). If so will this help?

    This product may be of benefit to you, as probiotics are widely considered to be a convenient way of topping up on ‘Good Bacteria’ whilst promoting the normal balance of bacteria for good health. Other products that we would suggest are things such as Ginkgo Biloba for circulation and memory, and Siberian Ginseng for low energy levels.

    Antibiotics work by destroying harmful bacteria present in the digestive tract that is causing inflammation. However, in doing so, they also destroy all the 'friendly' bacteria that work to maintain healthy balance. Many experts agree that topping up on 'friendly' bacteria can help to improve general health, therefore we would certainly recommend this product to you.

    Q: I suffer from a bloated abdomen (due to IBS) for the past 27 years - I have a flat abdomen at the start of the day on rising, which then bloats during the day to a size greater than when I was 9 months pregnant with my daughter!
    I have had some relief with Acai capsules - can I take both of these products at the same time??

    Yes, as long as you do not exceed the recommended dosage for either of these products, then there should be no harm in taking Probiotic Max and Acai Berry together. If you do have concerns, or are taking prescription medication alongside these, we would advise that you consult your GP.

  • 21st March 2012 - Sal
    Q: Will the Fructooligosaccharides sugars in this effect my acne as it is aggravated by sugars?

    We are not aware of any side effects for acne sufferers, however, as we are not medically trained we are unable to advise of the effect that they may have on you. Please consult with your GP or pharmacist for further advice.

    Q: Hello. I have just been diagnosed with a food intolerance to all dairy foods and yeast. Should I stop taking the Probiotic tablets? Also is there any other of your products I should avoid?

    Probiotic Max is yeast and lactose free, and therefore is perfectly safe for you to continue to take. With regards to other supplements in our range, the required information is listed on the product description on our website.

  • 3rd February 2012 - Fiona
    Q: Are these safe to take during pregnancy?

    Unfortunately, as we are not medically trained, we could only advise that you consult with your GP with regards to this.

  • 6th January 2012 - kat
    Q: How many should i take per day for the maximum result..... it appears that some people take 2 per day??

    The recommended dosage for our Probiotic Mac 1-2 tablets per day, therefore it is at your own discretion whether to take 1 or 2 a day.

  • 27th November 2011 - Lisa
    Q: Hi, I suffer from ibs ( diarrhea ) and also have a b12 deficiency, I wasn't sure if to start on these or the acidophilus, could you tell me which one would be the best. Also do you take both of them for only a certain period of time or would they be ongoing ?

    Probiotic Max contains beneficial levels of Acidophilus, therefore we would recommend you start by taking 2 tablets of Probiotic Max on a daily basis. Both of these products contain beneficial levels of their key ingredients that are safe to be taken daily on a permanent basis.

  • 14th November 2011 - Phil
    Q: Are your probiotics stored prior to shipping in a refrigerator? My GP has advised me not to purchase unless they have.

    Certain types of probiotic supplements do need to be temperature controlled. However the type that we have selected for use does not, therefore they are not refrigerated before shipping and do not require further refrigeration upon receipt.

  • 1st August 2011 - el
    Q: Is this probiotic good for women's health; healthy vaginal flora for example?

    Supplements can work in different ways for different people and we can not guarantee that this would be effective for you. However, we would certainly recommend you give this product a try.

  • 18th June 2011 - Paul J
    Q: Do the probiotics need to be kept refrigerated after opening ?

    These tablets do not need to be kept in the refrigerator after opening. Simply store them in a cool and dry place.

    Q: My husband is 76 years of age and suffers with constipation, he had a quadruple heart by-pass in 1991 and suffers with diabetes & high blood pressure for which he has medication, will this supplement be of assistance?

    This formula may be beneficial for your husband, however as he is currently on prescription medication we would always advise that he consults with his GP beforehand.

  • 21st January 2011 - annette
    Q:  Can you please tell me how many billions of friendy bacteria each tablet contains?

     Probiotic Max provides over 5 billion Lactobacillus Acidophilus micro organisms, also known as 'friendly bacteria' per tablet.

    Q: Hi,
    I seem to suffer from a lot of stomach wind, which results in a bloated stomach,( flat stomach when i first get up in the morning and then seems to get larger as the day goes on!) belching and noises in my throat. Also quite a bit of noise going on in my stomach! Would this product be of benefit for this, as i am fed up with my jeans feeling too tight!! I would be grateful for any help.

     Probiotic Max is a good supplement to use if you are experiencing irritable bowel syndrome, skin infections, bloating, gas or diarrhea. Probiotics are live microorganisms, bacteria in most cases - that are similar to beneficial microorganisms in your stomach. They are also referred to as friendly bacteria. Probiotic bacterial cultures assist your body's natural occuring gut flora to reestablish themselves.

    I took them after antibiotics
    Alaa , Exeter
    After being on and off antibiotics for five weeks my tummy used to hurt after eating or even drinking water so I tried these out. I was taking two every two hours to begin with and gradually reduced it to two tablets a day over a period of a few weeks. It restored my system back to normal. I then just took them whenever I had a tummy ache (they work wonders for that). Now I have run out and plan to buy the 360 tub. I highly recommend them.

    I've heard and read so much about the importance of adding prebiotics to the diet, in particualr FOS, so I thought I'd give your Probioticmax a try. It seems to be really good value considering the tablets contain both pro and pre biotics. So far I've found this to be one of the best probiotics on the market.

    i first bought Probiotic Max some yeaars ago after touring by car in France, Belgium and Germany, staying in B&B, small hotels, and with friends, I realised the futility of attempting to buy and keep fresh the drink type of 'friendly bacteria'. I have NEVER travelled without it since - Costa Rica, USA, South Africa, Brazil, the Arctic, and lots of Europe, but take it daily at home too. The first product I bought from Simply Supplements which led to many more purchases for both myyself and my husband. The quality is evident, and the price is right. Why would I look elsewhere?

    These are incredible. Have had terrible problems with severe thrush for 20+yrs and it gets even worse when I have to go on antibiotics which happens frequently because of an immune deficiency. Took these for 8 weeks and no thrush even when on 10 days antibiotics. Also recommend to travellers as it seemed to prevent me from getting dysentery (giardiasis) which I always get on my frequent visits to Africa. Had tried a strong lactoacidophilus product before from another company but nothing like as effective and three times the price! It must be the fructooligosaccharides that make the difference!
