GutPro Infant™ is recommended for anyone under the age of 2. However, because it's such a gentle formula it is also ideally suited for very sensitive individuals of all ages, or those taking probiotics for the first time. It is our least potent formula.
GutPro Powder™ is best for ages 3 and over, or children between the ages of 2 and 3 who have already used the Infant formula. It contains one extra strain (L. plantarum) and is twice the potency of GutPro Infant. GutPro is a powerful probiotic that does not require large doses. It is, however, suited for sensitive individuals who may have reacted to certain strains of bacteria found in other probiotic formulas. This product is also available in GutPro™ Capsules.

Primal Gut™ is recommended for those who have used probiotics in the past and are at more advanced stage of digestive healing. It contains the highest number of strains of all 3 formulas, so is ideal for individuals who are looking to introduce a wider variety of bacteria to their regimen. It is our most comprehensive formula.
The age to progress from one formula to another for every person varies. Since everyone is unique and responds differently to different formulas, it's important to take into account the individual's health history, diet, metabolism, and recommendations by a practitioner - not just the age. As always, be sure to go low and slow when introducing a new supplement to your regimen.
