The Science Behind the Superiority
Hyperbiotics PRO-Pets Has 15x More Survivability Than Capsules.‡
Let us explain…
Probiotics help replenish the beneficial gut bacteria that may have been depleted as a result of modern life and they help support overall health and well-being.
However, studies show that without protection most probiotics entering the stomach won't survive to reach optimal sites within the gastrointestinal tract. Most probiotic products retain only 4% of these sensitive organisms during passage through the stomach's harsh environment.
The good news: with the patented BIO-tract® protection and time-release delivery, we have increased this number to a remarkable 60%.
The BIO-tract® Difference
When the tablet is moistened by gastric fluids, a gel matrix forms that creates a protective layer, shielding beneficial organisms from stomach acids and directing them to release later in their journey.
Once inside the gastrointestinal tract, probiotics begin to release at consistent levels from the tablet core, delivering a potent percentage of our living organisms throughout the day and throughout your gut, traveling deep into your intestinal tract where they are needed most.
This is the only controlled-release delivery available for probiotics on the market today and is patented in 31 countries (US Patent 8,007,777 and 7,150,623).
BIO-tract® vs. Enteric Coated and Veggie Capsules
Most probiotic supplements are in veggie capsules that offer no protection from a harsh stomach environment, meaning that many of the beneficial organisms do not survive long enough to deliver the full benefit.
Enteric coated probiotic capsules offer some protection from stomach acids with a few drawbacks. Most enteric coatings are made of a synthetic chemical that the capsule is then dipped into. In addition to unwanted added chemicals, the capsule contains air and the coating contains moisture that may be detrimental to the probiotic organisms. You see, freeze-dried probiotic powder is ‘hygroscopic,’ meaning that it seeks out moisture. The beneficial flora will start wicking the moisture away from the air and the coating, which may start killing the living probiotics inside. Essentially, the air inside both veggie capsules and enteric coated capsules can cause the living organisms inside to self-destruct, leading to a far less potent product.
Instead of a coating or a capsule, we tablet our formulas using a patented manufacturing process called LiveBac® and a patented delivery method called BIO-tract®, which provide protection for the beneficial flora while on the shelf (as there is minimal air and moisture) and as the tablet travels through the harsh environment of your stomach acids. Simply put, this leads to greater probiotic delivery to your gut, and potentially greater health benefits for you. Furthermore, BIO-tract® ensures that the active organisms are released slowly over an 8-10 hour period while making the journey through the intestinal tract, successfully bypassing your stomach acids so that they can colonize in your small and large intestine, where you need them.
Hyperbiotics formulas have a guaranteed, extended shelf life with zero refrigeration.

What are the benefits of giving my animal PRO-Pets?
Whether canine or feline, getting more healthy bacteria into your pet’s system is one of the best things you can do for their digestive and immune health.
PRO-Pets replenishes the good bacteria that are often depleted in your pet’s digestive tract due to dietary indiscretion (eating anything and everything), along with unhealthy additives in their food and the widespread presence of antibiotics. PRO-Pets helps cats and dogs alike by:
• Supporting bone and joint health
• Aiding in digestion
• Supporting your animal’s immune system
• Helping to manage stress levels and emotional triggers
• Supporting weight management efforts
• Helping to maintain energy levels for strength and vigor
• Helping them absorb the nutrients from their food and vitamins
How many CFU (colony forming units) does PRO-Pets provide?
Each PRO-Pets slow-release tablet provides 3 billion CFU with 6 targeted probiotic strains to support regularity and help your pet live their healthiest, happiest days.
What is the best way to give PRO-Pets to my dog or cat?
PRO-Pets is an ultra-tiny pearl tablet with an irresistible beef-flavor that animals love, so you can give it directly to your pet whole or hide it in their food. Our probiotics are most effective when swallowed whole due to our patented BIO-tract® delivery, however you can break them into smaller pieces if needed.
Absolutely. PRO-Pets is a natural probiotic supplement that only includes the best strains for your pet’s health, and no GMOs or artificial fillers or additives that can be tough on their system.
How long should I give my dog or cat PRO-Pets?
You can safely supplement with PRO-Pets throughout your pet’s life to give them ongoing digestive and immune support. Much like vitamins, probiotics accumulate over time, so the more your pet has, the more their system will be supported.
What makes PRO-Pets and other Hyperbiotics formulas so unique?
We use a patented time-release delivery method called BIO-tract® that protects the beneficial organisms from stomach acids so they make it deep within your pet’s intestinal tract alive, where they can set up shop and get to work at helping your furry friends stay healthy.
This delivery method also ensures that PRO-Pets has 15x more survivability than many other probiotic supplements, so your pet can experience the benefits of a healthy balance of bacteria vital to their overall health and development.
Do I need to refrigerate these?
With patented LiveBac®, we are able to guarantee our formulas with zero refrigeration—so you can be confident that the probiotics in PRO-Pets are viable when your pet takes them.
Will the probiotics survive being shipped in the heat?
Yes! LiveBac® enables our products to withstand extreme heat for up to seven days—even longer if both seals are left intact.
TIPS FOR STORAGE AND USE
A shelf life you can count on. We use a patented manufacturing process called LiveBac® that increases the stability of PRO-Pets without refrigeration and enables us to guarantee its shelf life until the date of expiration found on the bottom of your bottle.
Store in a cool, dry place. Really. If you don't live in a cool, dry place or keep your home below 78 degrees, it is best to store your bottle in the fridge or even better, in the freezer, when/if you can. PRO-Pets is only susceptible to extreme heat and humidity once the bottle has been opened (our probiotics are very well protected until then). PRO-Pets has a guaranteed, extended shelf life with zero refrigeration.
It's OK for your pet to take them on an empty stomach (though not required). Our patented BIO-tract® delivery ensures that the living organisms are delivered throughout the day and throughout your pet’s gut (over an 8-10 hour window) - so you don't need to buffer it with food as you may with other supplements.
Use earlier rather than later. The reason we never have too many tablets per bottle at Hyperbiotics is that CFUs begin to slowly die off once the bottle is opened (this applies to all probiotics, not just PRO-Pets. In fact, our patented technology makes our die-off drastically slower than that of others!). We want your companion to get the highest potency possible so we simply don't pack hundreds of tablets into one bottle.
Increase your dosage when needed. If you are in search of a more intense approach to supporting your pet’s digestive health, you can give them 2-3 tablets each day. It's also a good idea to increase dosage just before and during travel as traveling (and boarding) can expose pets to stress-induced digestive and immune issues.
Recycle your bottle when you're done. We're committed to minimizing our ecological footprint, and we'd love for you to join us by recycling your empty bottle whenever possible. In fact, we're taking action to reduce negative impacts on our planet's natural resources and improve ecosystems around the world.
An additional tip is to offer your dog or cat a nourishing diet rich in whole foods, ideally free of processed grains, unnatural additives, and mysterious animal byproducts. Studies show that the microorganisms in the gut change relatively quickly based on diet. When you combine a nutritious diet, daily exercise, and a high-quality probiotic supplement, you’re directly supporting your pet in finding a happy, healthy balance again.
