The best natural probiotic for UTIs (Urinary Tract Infections) containing 9 powerful strains
Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Lactobacillus acidophilus and 7 more effective good bacteria – plus added prebiotics
MicroBiotic Plus is a multi-strain 12-billion probiotic supplement with specific strains which help address UTI infections
UTIs usually occur when bacteria get into the urethra and cause infection. It is important to address this problem before these bacteria multiply and spread from the bladder up into the kidneys.
Increasingly probiotics are seen to be either an alternative to, or an adjunct (additional support) to antibiotics. The role of a probiotic is to increase the level of the ‘good’ bacteria, crowding out the ‘bad’.
Research (referenced below and reviewed in Medical News Today) shows that probiotics can then help keep the urinary tract healthy and free from harmful bacteria.
In addition, they stimulate the immune system to cut down the extent and duration of a Urinary Tract Infection.
Different strains have different effects
Different probiotic strains have widely different anti-microbial effectiveness against UTIs (Urinary Tract Infections).
MicroBiotic Plus contains multiple strains that expressly target these conditions, and are shown in clinical trials to help resolve them.
Strains that target UTIs include:
- Lactobacillus rhamnosus
- Lactobacillus acidophilus
- Lactobacillus plantarum
- Lactobacillus casei
Strains that support the immune system include:
- Bacillus coagulans
- Lactobacillus plantarum
- Bifidobacterium bifidum
- Bifidobacterium longum
These are ALL in MicroBiotic Plus.
Probiotics add back good bacteria to help stop the UTI
The probiotics in MicroBiotic Plus help replace the beneficial bacteria that were reduced when the UTI began. They additionally help inhibit its further growth through anti-fungal compounds secreted by the good bacteria, especially Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS-1.
There are other health benefits to a well-formulated probiotic. When the bacteria in your gut become unbalanced, it can lead to IBS and digestive issues, including constipation, diarrhoea, gas, cramps and bloating. Tiredness is a common side-effect.
By helping to re-balance the ratio of good to harmful bacteria in your gut, MicroBiotic Plus can not only help relieve UTI issues, but also improve overall digestive health.
Use multi-strain MicroBiotic Plus daily to help resolve a UTI. Add to its effectiveness by drinking plenty of water and cutting down on sugary foods, which help feed harmful bacteria. Also, temporarily reduce caffeine, which can irritate the bladder.
A UTI is normally resolved quite quickly, but you need to take action as soon as you experience symptoms.

12 billion probiotic good bacteria
in 9 resistant hardy strains
1. Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS-1 (2 billion)
2. Bifidobacterium lactis (2 billion)
3. Bacillus coagulans ProDura™ (1 billion)
4. Lactobacillus casei (1 billion)
5. Lactobacillus rhamnosus (2 billion)

Combined with prebiotic natural plant fibres
Inulin and Oligofructose
The prebiotics provide immediate food for the live friendly bacteria, making a unique synergistic synbiotic formula.
The combination supports a natural healthy microbial balance in your gut, helping to replenish good bacteria and allowing them to colonise strongly using the prebiotic nourishment.
MicroBiotic Plus is based on the latest scientific research on the microbiome
Your microbiome is key to your physical and mental health.
The good bacteria do not just digest food and produce essential vitamins; they also strongly influence your immune system, 70% of which is, surprisingly, in your gut.
As the microbiome also includes bad bacteria (which can cause short-tem and long-term illness and disease), it's essential to have enough of a variety of good bacteria to fight the bad, and crowd them out.
Uni-Vite has been researching health supplements for 35 years. Only now do we think the science finally supports an intestinal or probiotic supplement to help support a well-balanced microbiome.
