For whom is More Biotic suitable?
More Biotic supports the restoration and maintenance of healthy intestinal and vaginal flora. It is therefore especially suitable for women with bloated belly, irregular digestion and problems with vaginal flora. In addition, it contains an intestinal bacterium that supports metabolism.

Why is More Biotic useful?
- The microbiome in the intestine and vagina is constantly influenced and can be brought out of balance by external and internal factors. The consequence is a so-called dysbiosis.
- Factors that can throw the microbiome out of balance include, in particular, diet and medications (antibiotics).
- Dysbiosis of the intestinal flora can lead to irregular digestion and flatulence, and dysbiosis of the vaginal flora can severely affect the well-being of women.
- Once the microbiome is out of balance, it cannot easily restore itself, as bacteria must be supplied in sufficient quantities from the outside for colonization.
- Once important bacterial strains have disappeared from the microbiome, they do not simply reform again. If even unhealthy (pathogenic) bacterial strains have settled, the healthy bacterial strains have an even harder time re-colonizing.
- More Biotic provides 7 important healthy human bacterial strains. The function of the bacterial strains contained in More Biotic have been investigated in clinical studies at the present dosages.
- It has been proven that the bacteria:
- colonize the intestinal flora (even during and after antibiotic use) and vaginal flora,
- multiply there and
- can rebalance the microbiome there.
- It has been proven that the bacteria:
- This provides a more regular, normal digestion, less bloating, a healthy metabolism and more well-being.
The microbiome includes, among other things, all microorganisms (bacteria, fungi, viruses, etc.) in the body and, as a complex system, makes an important contribution to our health.
It forms messenger substances for the regulation of metabolism, influences digestion and forms part of the immune system in the organism. The community of microorganisms is a fragile system that only functions properly when its composition is coordinated.
The microbiome can be disturbed by internal as well as external factors, so that the microbiota can be mispopulated with pathogenic bacteria and e.g. digestive problems occur.
Factors include stress, poor dietary habits, but also medications such as antibiotics have a negative impact on the microbiome.
Bloating, flatulence, irregular bowel movements, vaginal discharge, unpleasant odors - these are all symptoms that disturb well-being and lead to discomfort and suffering.
Digestion and also vaginal health are topics that, despite today's openness, are still fraught with shame and taboo. And this despite the fact that, according to Statista, more than 50% of women have gastrointestinal complaints in the form of flatulence or diarrhea at least once a month, for example, and a third suffer from bloating.
In a survey of the German population, 13% of 2050 people alone reported bloating and 13% reported abdominal pain in the last 7 days before the survey. Thereby, predominantly women are affected by irregularities in digestion. The reasons for this are manifold.
What impact do antibiotics have on the microbiome?
The use of antibiotics for bacterial infections also plays a major role in the occurrence of digestive problems. A 2009 evaluation on antibiotic use showed that 31% of women and 25% of men took antibiotics at least once during the year.
Unfortunately, there are no more recent data for Germany, but internationally there has been a sharp increase in antibiotic consumption of around 65% in recent years.
However, in addition to the desired therapy of a bacterial infection, the destruction of a large part of the healthy intestinal microbiome (dysbiosis) also occurs, resulting in a weakening of the immune defense, digestion and well-being with digestive complaints.
In one study, twelve healthy young subjects were given antibiotics and the microbiome was observed and studied for 6 months. After antibiotic administration and destruction of the microbiome, it took a total of 6 months for the intestinal flora to gradually return to normal. Some bacterial species could not be restored.
Current study reviews come to the conclusion that after about 1.5 months only a basic colonization of the intestinal flora has been restored, but even 6 months after antibiotic intake some bacterial strains were permanently absent - i.e. the diversity of the intestinal flora was permanently damaged.
For this reason, it is important to provide the body with the best possible supply of probiotic bacteria during/after taking antibiotics and to support the regeneration of the microbiome.
Anyone who has ever had to use an antibiotic probably has limited intestinal flora that has not fully regenerated and can therefore benefit from a good probiotic.
Note: Antibiotics are of course vital, they are not to be put in a bad light here. We are concerned with intercepting and alleviating the side effects of antibiotics in the best possible way.
How to recognize a good probiotic
- High number of probiotic strains and high number of colony-forming bacteria per strain.
- Dosage information: it is easy to see the ratio in which the bacterial strains are contained
- There are publicly available clinical studies and the function of the bacterial strains is documented

More Biotic FAQ
Are the More Biotic strains temperature sensitive?
Yes, our probiotics use live cultures, which means that although they are very stable, they are temperature sensitive. We recommend storing More Biotic at a maximum of 25 degrees, which is the average temperature of a refrigerator. This will give a shelf life of about 2 years. If it is not stored at ~25 degrees, the shelf life will be shortened.
In the recommended dosage it says: "Should be taken with a meal or drink containing soluble fiber (e.g. inulin and/ or polydextrose)" - what does that mean?
More Biotic should be taken with soluble or prebiotic fiber: e.g. polydextrose and/or inulin. These are contained in many foods: Oatmeal, blueberries, legumes, apples, pears, berry fruits, citrus fruits, rice, cooked and cooled pasta, potatoes or rice (also reheated); bananas, chicory, artichoke, salsify, leeks (leek, garlic, onion), asparagus, cabbage, etc.
Can I open the More Biotic capsules and consume the powder pure or mix it?
More Biotic capsules can be easily opened and then stirred into a meal. Yogurt is excellent for mixing with our product, as yogurt often contains live bacterial cultures. At More, we rely on the strains that are inherently resistant to gastric juices and bile salts. Portioning is also possible in this way. However, it should be noted that once opened, the bacterial cultures are exposed to oxygen, moisture and UV light, which deteriorates the quality of the bacteria if not consumed in time.
Is the More Biotic safe during pregnancy and breastfeeding?
All included strains have GRAS status and are 100% safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women, so there are no restrictions.
The HN001 strain (the "metabolic" strain) has been studied in several gold standard studies in pregnant and breastfeeding women, and can even show, besides the general positive effects on metabolism, further positive effects during pregnancy.
When taking HN001 during pregnancy, a lower prevalence of gestational diabetes was found.
Is the More Biotic suitable for children?
There are no known restrictions above 4kg body weight, as the No-Observed-Adverse-Effect Level (NOAEL) is 30 billion CFU/kg. Tests above this level of consumption have not been conducted as it does not represent a normal level of consumption.
The following strains have explicitly positive effects (allergies, immune system) in children even established in clinical studies : HN001, NCFM, Bi-07.
However, the product is oversized for children, so we recommend either to give only one capsule every two days or to open the capsule and give only half of the content every day.
Can atopic dermatitis be aggravated by More Biotic?
The microbiome is a complex system. There is no direct answer to the question of whether supplementation to support the microbiome directly improves or worsens most dermatological conditions, including atopic dermatitis. However, a Cochrane review suggests that probiotics do not negatively affect atopic dermatitis.
Most forms of atopic dermatitis are triggered by inflammatory processes. Therefore, this condition can be improved with supplements that help reduce inflammation and provide additional support for overall skin health and structure. Essentials O3-D3-K2 and Curcu-More products, along with Skin Structure Formula, may provide some benefit.
