What is Floraphage?
Floraphage is a bacteriophage, or phage, which is a microscopic protein that allows beneficial microflora to dominate the gastrointestinal tract. It reacts to specific bacteria species which result in releasing more phage and nutrients, known as prebiotics, for your good bacteria to feed on. The prebiotic qualities of Floraphage are not fiber or starch‐based.
Benefits of Floraphage include:
Works when taken in small doses (15mg) within hours (not days)
Functions in both the small and large intestines
Supports urinary tract health
Does not cause flatulence like other prebiotics
Withstands varying gut environments
Works with supplemental and naturally occurring probiotic species.
How does Floraphage work?
Floraphage creates space and nutrients in the gastrointestinal tract by reacting to bacteria within the gut. The nutrients created by Floraphage are then utilized by probiotics for substantial growth within the environment. This allows Floraphage to restore the optimal balance of flora within the sensitive digestive ecosystem.
Which probiotic product was tested with Floraphage?
Along with three competitors, Arthur Andrew Medical’s probiotic-containing product, Syntol, showed significant growth when combined with Floraphage than compared to growth without Floraphage.
Which probiotic strains were tested with Floraphage?
The following bacteria showed significant growth when combined with Floraphage compared to growth without Floraphage:
- B. bifidum
- B. breve
- B. animalis
- B. longum
- L. acidophilus
- L. paracasei
- L. casei
- L. rhamnosus
- Lc. lactis
- B. subtilis
When is the best time to take Floraphage?
Floraphage can be taken at any time, with or without food. Phage are not nearly as susceptible to acid and temperature changes as probiotic organisms. Based on this fact, we recommend taking the product whenever it's most convenient for you.
Can I take Floraphage with other supplements?
Floraphage can be taken with other supplements. We have not seen any adverse reactions with Floraphage, either on its own or in combination with other supplements.
How long does it take for Floraphage to work?
Everybody is different, but according to our in vitro testing, Floraphage should start working within hours of the first dose. However, benefits that can be "felt" will likely take anywhere from three to four weeks. Some may experience immediate benefits, while others may take longer, but its value to one's health is far-reaching from its onset of use.

Is Floraphage non-GMO (Genetically Modified Organism)?
Yes, Floraphage is non-GMO. The microorganisms used to produce this enzyme product are not genetically engineered organisms as defined by the NATIONAL ORGANIC STANDARDS BOARD. Genetically engineered is defined as follows: Made with techniques that alter the molecular or cellular biology of an organism by means that are not possible under natural conditions or processes. Genetic engineering includes recombinant DNA, cell fusion, micro-and macro-encapsulation, gene deletion and doubling, introducing a foreign gene, and changing the position of genes. It shall not include breeding, conjugation, fermentation, hybridization, in-vitro fertilization, and tissue culture.
