Provella™ features a patented controlled-release technology.
It has been estimated that as few as 20%-40% of certain probiotic bacteria survive passage through the gut. Stomach acid is a major threat to probiotic survival.1
Provella™ is formulated using a patented controlled-release technology that helps protect probiotics from harsh stomach acid and is designed to ensure that live organisms reach the intestines where they can begin working.2,3
