UP4™ Heart Health healthy bacteria help to reduce LDL and total cholesterol levels, risk factors for heart disease, in two ways: by reducing the amount of cholesterol your body produces and by reducing the amount absorbed from food.

As someone who works hard to improve your heart health through diet and exercise, you know what you eat affects your heart. But what you may not know is that your cholesterol level - a risk factor for heart disease - can be affected by the types of bacteria in your digestive system.

Probiotics - bacteria that confer a health benefit to the host - are being studied to determine if through the gut, they may have a more significant role in helping to maintain and improve health and wellness. And emerging science is evaluating whether supplementing the microbiome (gut bacteria) with probiotics can play a role in health and certain chronic diseases such as heart disease.

UAS Laboratories provides a comprehensive line-up of probiotics containing the superstrain, Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS-1. This extensively researched probiotic provides many of the benefits associated with excellent probiotic products:

Acid and bile resistance - for probiotics to be effective, they must successfully pass through stomach acid and bile in the upper intestine yet remain alive, our probiotics are 97% resistant to acid and bile and require no special "enteric coating" to survive.

Colonization - probiotics that are able to colonize the gut, provide more consistent probiotic benefits. Our probiotics are known colonizers that multiply 100 to 200-fold.

Providing probiotic benefits - our probiotics produce digestive enzymes, B-vitamins and lactic acid.

Pure probiotics - our probiotics are non-dairy, lactose-free, gluten-free, wheat-free, soy-free, preservative-free, non-GMO and available in veggie capsules that are suitable for vegans. Our probiotics are manufactured in a GMP plant in Wisconsin. Because of our intense focus on quality, UAS Laboratories probiotics are one of the few to be distributed in Canada.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the most important thing to consider in probiotics?

Probiotics must be viable (alive) to have any benefit. Studies have shown, many probiotics in the market today do not maintain their potency on the shelf. UAS Labs has every batch tested for potency by an independent laboratory and strives for 25% to 75% higher potency than label guarantee to ensure potency during the entire shelf life.

Why do some probiotics use enteric coatings?

Many probiotics cannot survive stomach acid and are killed. Fragile strains must use special chemical coatings to survive transit through the stomach. DDS Probiotics contain strains that are naturally resistant to acid and bile so no special coatings are required - more than 97% of DDS Probiotics reach the digestive tract alive.

How much probiotics should I take?

Probiotic quality is measured in CFU/g (colony-forming units/gram). The amount needed is dependent upon the strain and the condition. For a normal person taking a probiotic strain that can colonize the digestive system, 5 billion CFU/gram is often adequate. Higher quantities of probiotics may be necessary for healthy digestion in some people.

What is the best time to take probiotics?

Probiotics are best taken first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.

Can I take probiotics with antibiotics?

Yes, but antibiotics can kill probiotics so allow at least 3 hour interval between taking your probiotic and antibiotic.

How do I know good probiotics from others?

Look for probiotics with proven track records that are manufactured in the USA in a GMP-certified facility. Look for probiotic strains that have been studied and researched.

Do probiotics contain dairy?

Many probiotics are grown in a dairy medium because probiotic bacteria break down lactose (milk sugar). UAS Laboratories has perfected a process that does not use dairy, gluten, soy, corn, wheat in their probiotics. In addition, all DDS Probiotics are Non-GMO.

Do I have to keep my probiotics in the refrigerator?

Probiotics are sensitive to heat. DDS. Probiotics are stable at room temperature (70°F) but we recommend refrigeration. It's important to avoid extremely high temperatures like hot cars. If you treat probiotics like you would chocolate, they should be OK.

    I used this product when it was cardioviva for years and was thrilled with it. It lowered my cholesterol and kept me regular. I was upset when they discontinued it and have searched for it constantly. I am so glad to have found this product again because none of the other probiotics worked well. I have just ordered 6 bottles and am so grateful that I have found this product.

    Since I cannot take statin drugs, I have been searching for a good product to help control my high cholesterol. This product is it!

    Since I have been taking it, my Total Cholesterol and LDL numbers have come down to the "Normal" range -- and my doctor is thrilled.

    I have experienced no side-effects from this probiotic. And, at this price, it is cheaper than the statin meds that my doctor initially considered.

    So, overall, I think this is a Great Product!

    GREAT PRODUCT !!!!!!!!!!

    I started taking this about a year ago and along with a few other products I have lowered my cholesterol by over 100 points. This UP4 is a life saver as far as I am concerned. It seems like lately is is hard to get and all the places I have gotten it are backordered. I would recommend this to anyone that wants to lower their cholesterol and also then probiotics.
