FloraSport 20B is a one-of-a-kind probiotic combination with 20 billion active organisms in each capsule. It helps athletes with high demands on their digestive tract or immune system due to a specialized diet, travel, training, competition, or chronic stress.*
Probiotics are friendly bacteria found naturally in dairy products with active cultures, such as yogurt and kefir, improving immune response and protecting against gastrointestinal disorders. Nearly 70% of our immune system is in our gut, so when the gut microbiome is out of balance, harmful bacteria form that can lead to poor digestion and the ability to resist the infection of pathogens and parasites or harmful bacteria.
Poor gut health occurs when the athlete’s diet does not consist of a wide variety of whole foods such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
FloraSport 20B is a superior blend of freeze-dried Lactobacillus paracasei, Lactobacillus acidophilus, and two strains of Bifidobacterium lactis. L. acidophilus and Bifidobacterium are the two probiotics most extensively researched and shown positive improvements with:
- Increased energy production
- Reduction of disease risk
- Reduce anxiety and depressive light behavior
- Improve training recovery
- Influence muscle gain and strength
- Decrease stress and increase resilience
- Facilitate faster recovery from training
Each capsule contains 20 billion active cultures and comes in individually-sealed blister packs for humidity and temperature control.

Your “gut flora” contains around 100 trillion bacteria. The importance of having a healthy gut flora for your overall health cannot get overstated. A diet high in whole foods offers your gut with a wide range of nutrients that aid in the growth of various bacteria, resulting in a more diverse gut flora.
Our most frequently asked questions about probiotic supplements
The term “probiotic” literally translates to “for life.” Probiotics are living microorganisms that, when consumed or administered locally in adequate amounts, help the consumer’s health. These natural and friendly bacteria balance our gut microbiota and support our immune system once they reach our intestines.
Probiotics’ health benefits vanish if not consumed regularly. Think of them as ‘visitors’ in your intestine. Therefore, probiotics should be taken daily to maintain a healthy gut environment.
As part of a well-balanced diet, probiotics can get ingested by people of all ages. A baby’s gut is sterile before birth, and its immune system is undeveloped. A baby’s gut microbiota develops from the moment they are born. The growth of a baby’s gut microbiota is continued by breastfeeding or using an infant formula with probiotics. The microbiota in the stomach varies as a child grows and changes their diet. Most youngsters have a pretty steady gut equilibrium by age two or three. Their immune system has also increased significantly. Both may, however, benefit from taking probiotics daily.
No! It’s considerably more likely that intended health advantages won’t be realized due to insufficient probiotic daily doses. Today, there are a variety of delivery forms that provide enjoyable and straightforward methods to get a healthy serving of probiotics as part of a daily routine to maintain the correct dosage.
Probiotics provide health advantages in various areas, including immunological, gastrointestinal, vaginal, and respiratory systems. Because everyone is different, as are their stages of health, the time it takes for benefits to get observed varies within a group. If our immune system is weak or damaged, we will usually notice improvements within a few days. If our health is already good, we may take probiotics as a preventative measure, even if we don’t see instant results. Probiotics will help balance your gut bacteria, strengthen your immune system, and support respiratory health in any case.
To fully restore the gut microflora and reduce the risk of antibiotic-related side effects, probiotics should be taken during and for 1-2 weeks after antibiotic therapy.
Pregnant women frequently experience stomach issues. Regularly taking probiotics is a safe and effective way to help avoid mild intestinal problems and boost overall health. Consuming probiotics can also provide immune benefits for both the mother and the infant.
Depending on the probiotic, probiotic blend, and desired clinical goal, studies have found that a dosage of 1 – 40 billion bacteria per day has favorable health effects. Follow the suggested daily serving on the dietary supplement container to ensure you get an adequate daily dose.
Thorne’s fish oil supplements provide extra benefits in addition to heart and brain health. Thorne’s fish oil supplements contain more omega-3 fatty acids per serving than many other fish oil supplements on the market. The company also offers a selection of fish oil supplements to address specific health concerns.
Toxins produced by pathogens can cause diarrhea. Probiotics simply stop pathogens from growing, reducing the amount of toxins produced. Probiotics restore gut flora equilibrium, resulting in improved stool regularity and consistency.
Probiotics produce tiny amounts of lactic acid, which causes a pH drop in the vaginal canal. For a healthy vaginal system, a lower pH is considered typical. The yeast and dangerous bacteria that cause vaginitis are crowded out or inhibited by competitive exclusion.
Travelers are occasionally exposed to bacteria and pathogens that cause diarrhea, particularly in third-world nations. Probiotics should be taken 3 to 5 days before departure, during the vacation, and for two weeks after returning home to reap the benefits.
Only about 1% of test groups report any negative effects. Excess gas is the most common adverse effect reported, and it is usually resolved when the user stops taking probiotics for a few weeks and then resumes taking them at a lower dose (50 percent of recommended dose).
