Description

PurO3’s probiotic suppositories are a multi-strain combination mixed with natural cocoa butter.

Our cocoa butter is certified organic and naturally contains vitamins, minerals, and bioflavonoids with antioxidant properties. This serves as a base for our combination of 18 strains of beneficial bacteria along with a prebiotic.

Each package contains your choice of 10 or 20 suppositories. This product is not ozonated. Each suppository contains 50.7 billion CFU (colony-forming units).

The benefit of using a suppository is that the total dosage of probiotics goes to the source of intestinal flora imbalance without having to be digested. When taken orally, anywhere from 1/2 to 3/4 or more of the strains do not make it past the stomach acids. Suppositories are a solution to this problem.

Probiotic suppositories are used to help reestablish gut flora, help diminish vaginal yeast infections and bacterial infections of BV (bacterial vaginosis), and may help prevent recurring urinary tract infections.

More about probiotics

Our intestines contain a rich supply of blood vessels that actively exchange substances, and mucous membranes that harbor vast communities of functional bacteria. Numerous studies have examined the complex mechanisms of the beneficial effects of probiotics. Bacteria help create a protective lining on the walls of the intestine by stimulating the production of mucus and regulating adherence by certain bacteria. This helps support a proper balance of microbiota in the gut. Antimicrobial peptides, or bacteriocins, are produced by these bacteria and establish competitive exclusion of pathogenic strains.  

Each suppository contains 50.7 billion CFU (colony-forming units).

How to Use:

Use one suppository daily or as directed by your health care practitioner. To remove suppository, tear the plastic shell lengthwise beginning at the center perforation at the top (side view shown). Apply a lubricant if needed before insertion. Use as needed or as directed by your healthcare provider. For rectal use: Insert following a bowel movement. Insert past sphincter muscle. Sometimes after insertion you may have an urge to evacuate. Try to hold for 15 to 20 minutes if possible for best absorption of suppository. For vaginal use: Insert 2 to 4 inches when lying down, preferably at night. Remain in a flat position for at least 30 minutes for best absorption.

Storage:

Keep refrigerated or frozen. Keep out of direct sunlight.

Important notes about shipping and order times

Due to probiotics shipping in a special cooler, they do not qualify for free shipping. If you are placing an order for probiotics and other items, free shipping won't apply, as only one shipping method is used per order. However, if you are purchasing probiotics and at least $49 worth of other products, you can get free shipping on the other items by placing two orders. We wanted to make this clear so we can save you money on shipping when possible.

Note: If you do order multiple products in one order, the order will ship together based on the timelines below. If you'd like other products to ship separately, please place separate orders.

If you live in an area with higher temperatures, we highly recommend choosing overnight shipping for your probiotics. While they may not necessarily arrive cold or cool, the purpose of expediting is to keep them out of sustained higher temperatures that can occur with non-expedited shipping. Tracking numbers are provided with every order once shipped, and it is the customer's responsibility to be aware of when the parcel is delivered to prevent prolonged exposure outside.

Note: Probiotics ship Monday-Wednesday. Orders placed on Thursday-Sunday will ship the following Monday. International shipping is limited, so contact us for a shipping quote and custom order placement.


Return policy: Probiotic suppositories are not returnable.
