Dear rhhicks,

Yes, there should be some type of delivery system to get the probiotics past the stomach acid.  It will not necessarily destroy it all but if acidity is high it will destroy a portion.  It does not have to be just enteric coating, it can be other types of delivery systems such as delayed release capsule or bio-tract delivery technology etc....

Now with that said there are some formulas in a powder like our 200 Billion sachet that because you are taking such a high amount you will still definately get good benefit from it.  the stomach will not destroy it all - just a small portion.  But that is why the powders are ususally such high amounts, to ensure a good amount gets to the intestinal tract.

Hope this helps

I read an article recently that probiotics are useless unless they have a coating that won't allow them to break down until they reach the digestive track.  It said that the acids in the stomach would destroy the probiotics before they could do you any good unless they were enteric coated.  Is this true?
