CD Biotic™ and CD-Herbal™: Powerful Promoters of Gastrointestinal Health

Probiotics are defined scientifically as “living microorganisms that when ingested or locally applied in sufficient numbers can fill one or more specified, demonstrated functional or health benefits on the host.” Probiotics have been called nature’s “internal healers” because of their crucial role in the health and functioning of the intestinal tract. Probiotics are actually friendly (desirable and beneficial) bacteria that help keep the flora of the gastrointestinal tract balanced correctly with respect to good and bad organisms.

Under certain circumstances and frequently among sensitive individuals, certain strains of bad bacteria become concentrated in the gastrointestinal tract and are very difficult to eradicate using conventional probiotics or drugs.  This is especially true if the strain of bacteria is a spore-forming organism.  Spores of these types of organisms can lie dormant in the gut following various types of control procedures, only to repopulate when conditions are right.

CD-Biotic™ is a specialty probiotic and one of the two parts of a concentrated duo (CD) of products designed to support healthy gastrointestinal flora when certain difficult to control bad bacterial strains are involved.  CD-Biotic™ is formulated to be used in conjunction with an herbal product called CD-Herbal™, a powerful blend of herbs that also targets difficult to eradicate strains of undesirable flora.

CD-Biotic™ is a blend of three probiotic strains including Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Lactobacillus plantarum and Saccharomyces boulardii.  These three strains of good bacteria have a history of supporting healthy gut flora under difficult circumstances.  CD-Biotic™ and CD-Herbal™ used together form a concentrated duo that can have a profound impact on gastrointestinal flora, thereby supporting good intestinal health.

Kirkman® recommends that you be under a doctor’s care when using this concentrated duo of products as lab testing may be necessary to evaluate progress and potential dosage changes.
It is important when using this duo of products that dosage instructions are carried out accurately.  The typical dosage is one CD-Biotic™ capsule one hour before lunch and one more near bedtime (two hours after dinner).  The CD-Herbal™ capsules should be taken just before breakfast and two more before dinner.

CD-Herbal™ – Hypoallergenic Capsules
CD-Herbal™ is a powerful blend of herbal components that support gastrointestinal health by helping control undesirable gut flora.  As we have mentioned, under certain circumstances and very frequently among sensitive individuals, certain strains of bad bacteria become concentrated in the gastrointestinal tract and are very difficult to eradicate using conventional probiotics or drugs.  This is especially true if the strain of bacteria is a spore-forming organism.  Spores of these types of organisms can lie dormant in the gut following various types of control procedures, only to repopulate when conditions are right.

CD-Herbal™ is one of the two parts of a concentrated duo (CD) of products designed to support healthy gastrointestinal flora when certain difficult to control bad bacterial strains are involved.  CD-Herbal™ is formulated to be used in conjunction with Kirkman’s probiotic product called CD-Biotic™, a specially-formulated probiotic designed to support healthy gastrointestinal flora when certain difficult to control strains have populated the gut.

CD-Herbal™ contains thyme, oregano and curcumin (turmeric) herbs, all of which can exhibit inhibitory support on harmful gut flora.  It also contains cumin, an herb that stimulates the growth of the probiotic strain Lactobacillus plantarum, which is present in CD-Biotic™ and instrumental in helping crowd out undesirable flora.

It bears repeating that Kirkman® recommends that you be under a doctor’s care when using this concentrated duo of products as lab testing may be necessary to evaluate progress and potential dosage changes.

As mentioned earlier, it is important when using this duo of products, that dosage instructions are carried out accurately.  The typical dosage is one CD-Biotic™ capsule one hour before lunch and one more near bedtime (two hours after dinner).  The CD-Herbal™ capsules should be taken just before breakfast and two more before dinner.
