Frequently Asked Questions

What is the complete list of vitamins and minerals in this supplement?
Vitamin A (Beta-Carotene) Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that comes from two sources: preformed retinoids and provitamin A carotenoids. These retinoids are found in animal sources such as eggs, liver and dairy products like whole milk, while provitamin A carotenoids come from colorful plant foods like fruits and vegetables. Beta-carotene typically leads the pack in most efficiently making retinol, a pre-formed, active form of vitamin A. Probiotic-Fermented Vitamin C Found mostly in fruits and vegetables, this essential vitamin is known for its powerful antioxidant properties and for its general benefits for supporting a healthy response to stress.† Probiotic-Fermented Vitamin D3 Vitamin D plays a role in up to 2,000 genes and in every single tissue and cell of the body, yet 75 percent of American teens and adults don’t get enough. The immune-supporting vitamin D3 in this formulation is your body’s preferred form compared to vitamin D2. Natural Vitamin E A fat-soluble vitamin with many important processes in the body, this bioavailable, natural vitamin E also functions as an antioxidant. Soy-Free Vitamin K (MK-7) Vitamin K belongs to compounds called naphthoquinones and that includes vitamins K1, K2 and K3. Overall, vitamin K plays a strong role in bones and normal bone metabolism. Vitamin K2 also generally functions to ensure calcium gets to the right places in the body, such as the bones and teeth and not in the arteries or brain. Generally speaking, vitamin K2 also functions to activate at least three proteins in osteoblasts, the cells that generate bone, while inhibiting the breaking down of bone. Vitamin K2 occurs in several forms, but two primary types are menaquinone-4 (MK-4) and menaquinone-7 (MK-7). MK-7 is a preferred form of vitamin K2, and the vitamin K2 in MK-7 form in Ancient Multi Immune Support Formula is soy-free. Fermented and Coenzymated B vitamins B vitamins serve as essential helpers in the conversion of food to energy. And while they do not directly provide that energy, they do assist the process. In fact, the vitamin B complex includes eight water-soluble vitamins: thiamin, riboflavin, biotin, niacin, vitamin B6, folate, vitamin B-12 and pantothenic acid. This well-rounded vitamin B complex offers individual health benefits but work together in several ways. B vitamins are also water-soluble, so they need to be replenished often (if not every day) through diet and/or supplementation. The vitamin B-12 in Ancient Multi Women’s is in the preferred methylcobalamin form, the form that’s typically the easiest for the body to use. Calcium An organic source of calcium derived from organic, U.S.-produced eggshells, this form of calcium is body-friendly. Iron Traditionally a blood-building mineral, iron used in supplements sometimes tends to trigger digestive distress. Luckily, this formula utilizes iron that’s gentle on the digestive tract. Iodine Our iodine is derived from an enzymatic process which bonds amino acids to minerals: chelation. Chelated minerals, such as our iodine, generally have easier absorption rates. Magnesium One of the most crucial minerals, magnesium is involved in more than 300 biochemical functions in the body, such as regulating heartbeat rhythms and helping neurotransmitter functions. Enzyme-Activated Zinc An essential mineral that’s second only to iron in its concentration in the body, zinc is often referred to as the “intelligence mineral.” Functionally, the liver also needs zinc in sufficient amounts so it can mobilize and release stored vitamin A into the bloodstream. Fermented Selenium An essential mineral to support thyroid health†, selenium is an important mineral in supporting women’s overall health. Manganese As an essential nutrient that’s usually tied to iron and other minerals, manganese plays a role in numerous chemical processes, including synthesis of nutrients like cholesterol, carbohydrates and proteins. Chromium A hard and brittle metal, chromium is a trace mineral needed by the body.
What probiotic strains are in this probiotic and what do they do?
There are 18 probiotic strains including the strains below:
This probiotic strain is the most abundant in the formula, but it’s not bacteria. Saccharomyces boulardii is a form of beneficial yeast that, generally speaking, survives passage through stomach acid to deliver benefits to the intestinal tract.
A soil-based spore-forming probiotic that reduces occasional diarrhea, constipation, gas and bloating and supports healthy digestive function, the body’s natural cleansing process, healthy gut integrity and healthy microbial balance†
A live probiotic strain clinically-studied to support healthy digestive function†
The other strains in this probiotic are listed below. They are all live strains.
Lactobacillus paracasei, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Lactobacillus casei, Bifidobacterium lactis, Bifidobacterium breve, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus fermentum, Lactobacillus gasseri, Lactobacillus helveticus, Bifidobacterium longum, Bifidobacterium infantis, Lactobacillus sakei, Bifidobacterium adolescentis, Lactobacillus johnsonii
Why do I need probiotics?
Fact: Most Americans don’t consume enough probiotics in their diet due to modern processed foods, soil depletion and more. I believe most people are in need of probiotic support.
Here’s why: Thanks to prescription antibiotics, high carbohydrate diets, fluoridated tap water, and high levels of stress, the good bacteria in our guts are often being diminished, and our bodies can't replace them at the rate required for optimal health.†
In fact, I believe we need to avoid and reduce our consumption of these top 7 probiotic killers:
- Prescription antibiotics
- Excessive sugar intake
- Drinking tap water (chlorine and fluoride)
- GMO foods
- Eating too many whole grains (plus gluten)
- Emotional stress
- Exposure to toxins and pesticides
Meanwhile, “bad guy” bacteria can flourish while the “good guy” bacteria is killed off, leaving your system out of balance.
I believe the best way to approach this is to:
1. Eliminate foods and toxins that feed “bad” bacteria.
2. Start consuming probiotic-rich foods and supplements.†
How is this different than SBO Probiotic?
The main difference between this and SBO Probiotic is that SBO Probiotic features only soil based, spore-forming organisms, and this probiotic features mostly live (non-spore forming) cultures.
The strains in SBO populate differently in your gut than the live cultures in this probiotic, so this is a great option for adding additional strains to your probiotic routine if you’re already taking SBO.
SBO contains a fermented botanical blend of prebiotics, this one does not. Ancient Probiotics features Ayurvedic herbs to amplify the benefits, SBO does not feature these.
Ancient Probiotics Ultimate features 100 billion CFU* per serving, and SBO Probiotic features 50 billion CFU* per serving. Soil based organisms survive in the soil and are generally more survivable than live cultures, which is why we’ve included more diverse strains and more CFUs in Ultimate than in SBO.
Ancient Probiotics feature time-release capsules, which means the contents dissolve slower and steadier in your body. This is especially beneficial for the diverse probiotics in this blend making it to your digestive tract where they are most important. SBO Probiotic, while featuring survivable strains, does not feature time-release capsules.
How is this different than the other probiotics in the Ancient Probiotics line?
Ultimate has the highest amount of CFUs* (100 billion) of any of the Ancient Probiotics.
It also has the most amount of probiotic strains (18) compared to 17 in the other varieties.
What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is a 5000-year-old ancient health tradition that focuses on systematic practices to bring the body into balance to achieve optimal wellness. The primary goal of Ayurveda? To help people live long, healthy and balanced lives. In fact, the very word Ayurveda roughly translates to the “science of life.”
Originating in India, Ayurveda takes individuality into account when considering holistic approaches to health. And today, many Ayurvedic methods, including using specific herbs, are growing in popularity and are the subject of ongoing research interest.
So what does it involve? Ayurvedic practitioners promote not only a healthy, balanced diet, but also lifestyle changes, stress relief and specific herbs that have withstood the test of time.
What is the right amount of CFUs to be getting every day?
It varies! For most people I recommend a CFU count anywhere between 25 - 100 billion.
Do I need to refrigerate these probiotics?
You do not need to refrigerate these, although it may help them last longer because of the high amount of live cultures.
Is supplementation really necessary?
For many Americans the diet consumed isn’t nutritionally adequate. In fact, approximately two-thirds of the standard U.S. diet is made up of unhealthy fats and refined sugars with low or no nutrient density — providing calories but not the amounts of vitamins and minerals needed, including vitamins A, B Complex, C, D, E and the minerals calcium, magnesium and zinc. More specifically, typical diets contain less than 80% of the RDA for calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, copper, and manganese—and the people who are most at risk for coming up short on those nutrients are adult women and teenage girls. Here’s the truth: If two-thirds of the standard U.S. diets are coming up short on certain nutrients, then the remaining one-third of the average diet may not be so great, either, and cannot possibly fully meet a person’s nutrient needs.One great way to get more vitamins and minerals into your diet is to include nutrient-dense, real foods. Unlike our Standard American Diet, nutrient-dense foods can deliver a vitamin-packed and mineral-packed wallop. In addition to a nutrient-dense diet, some opt to take a multivitamin to help cover their bases.
