Probiotics – General
1. What are probiotics? Why are they important and how do they work?
Probiotics are live microorganisms such as bacteria and yeast. There are literally trillions of these organisms in the human digestive tract. Probiotics are important because they help populate the intestines to balance the microbial environment and improve digestive health.
2. What probiotic strains are in my digestive tract?
Lactobacillus strains are the most prevalent probiotic bacteria in the small intestine, and Bifidobacterium strains are most prevalent in the large intestine (colon).
3. Can I find probiotics in food?
Yes. Live probiotics can be found naturally in non-pasteurized, fermented foods such as yogurt and kefir, in fermented vegetables such as sauerkraut, and in soybean-based foods such as miso and tempeh.
4. If probiotics are already in my food, why would I take a probiotic supplement?
Everyday factors such as poor diet, stress, travel, and even the use of some medications can offset the balance of healthy bacteria in your digestive tract. Probiotics help your body digest valuable nutrients from your food and play an important role in producing needed vitamins such as vitamin B12 and vitamin K. You can read more about the benefits of probiotics at https://blog.renewlife.com/if-probiotics-are-in-my-food-why-take-a-supplement/
5. How do I choose a probiotic supplement?
There are several key factors to consider when choosing a probiotic. They include: a high culture count; the number of strains; targeted or delayed release; a potency and stability guarantee; clear label information; a reputable manufacturer; and a “best used by” date. For more details, you can take a look at a short video on our website: https://blog.renewlife.com/do-you-know-the-6-rules-of-probiotics/.
6. What is culture count (or CFU), and why is it important in a probiotic?
Culture count – also known as CFU (Colony Forming Unit) – refers to the total number of bacteria per serving. It’s an important factor because some of the most effective probiotic supplements have at least 10 billion cultures per capsule.
7. Why do the number and type of strains in a probiotic matter, and how many strains should I look for?
It’s important that probiotic supplements contain high amounts of both Bifidobacteria to support the large intestine (colon) and Lactobacilli to support the small intestine and urogenital tract. Look for a supplement with multiple strains of different bacteria, including clinically-studied strains that have been shown to benefit digestive health.
8. What does it mean if a probiotic is designed for “targeted” or “delayed” release?
Our probiotic capsules with targeted (or delayed) release technology are designed for optimal delivery of live cultures to the intestines. They protect cultures from stomach acid so that the cultures are alive when they arrive in the intestines, where they will provide the most benefit.
9. What does it mean for a probiotic to be potent?
A probiotic can be considered potent if it contains 10 billion cultures or more per serving.
10. Why do stores keep some of your probiotics refrigerated and others on the shelves?
Some of our probiotic products are shelf-stable, and some are best if kept refrigerated. So if you’re looking for our probiotics in stores, be sure to check the shelves as well as the refrigerated sections.
11. Do Renew Life products contain gluten, dairy, or soy?
A number of Renew Life products are made without gluten, dairy, or soy. We list all specific ingredients right on the packaging of every product. To be certain about ingredients, please check each individual product’s packaging label in the store or online. If you aren’t sure or have questions, we can be reached at 800-830-1800.
12. Are Renew Life products Non-GMO Project verified?
For a full list of Renew Life products that have been verified by the Non-GMO Project, please visit their website at www.nongmoproject.org and search for our Renew Life brand.
13. Are Renew Life products vegan?
Most of our products are vegetarian and many of them would be considered vegan. To determine whether a Renew Life product is vegan, check the packaging label in the store or online to be sure there are no animal ingredients listed, and look for a “dairy free” designation. We have certain formulas that may contain traces of ingredients that are not vegan, and we specifically state this on those products’ packaging labels. If you have questions, we can be reached at 800-830-1800.
14. Are Renew Life products USDA-certified organic?
Many of our products contain certified organic ingredients. To be certain, please check for the “USDA organic” seal on each individual product’s packaging label in the store or online. If you’re wondering about the organic composition of our probiotic supplements, please note that because probiotics are living organisms, the probiotics in our formulas are not considered “organic” ingredients under labelling standards. If you have any questions about this, we can be reached at 800-830-1800.
Probiotics – How to take and store them
15. How do I take probiotic capsules?
For the best results, take one capsule daily with or without food. If you need assistance or more information, you can reach us at 800-830-1800.

We suggest mixing probiotic powder with cool or room-temperature water, other beverages, or soft food immediately before use. Do not mix with hot beverages or hot food.

Some individuals may experience gas and bloating when first using probiotic supplements. If you need assistance or more information, we can be reached at 800-830-1800.

You can take a Renew Life probiotic with any of our cleansing or detox formulas. If you need assistance or more information, you can reach us at 800-830-1800.

Some experts recommend taking a daily probiotic supplement during pregnancy to promote better digestion and health. You can read more about this on our website at https://blog.renewlife.com/did-you-know-probiotics-benefit-moms-to-be/. If you are uncertain about whether to take a probiotic during pregnancy, we recommend consulting with your doctor or healthcare practitioner.
20. Do I really need to refrigerate my probiotics? What happens if I don’t?
The reason we recommend keeping your probiotics in the refrigerator is to keep out moisture and help those good-for-your-gut bacteria last as long as possible. If refrigeration isn’t an option, it’s best to store your probiotics in a cool, dry place at 77 degrees Fahrenheit (25 degrees Celsius) or below (such as on the counter or in the pantry with your other supplements). You can read more about storing your probiotics at https://blog.renewlife.com/do-i-really-need-to-refrigerate-my-probiotics/.
21. Do Ultimate Flora probiotics need to be refrigerated during shipment?
We take extra steps to ensure that the potency of Ultimate Flora probiotics is not impacted by shipping to retailers or consumers. We do not ship our probiotics with ice packs. For best results, we suggest refrigerating probiotics after opening
22. What is the potency guarantee for Ultimate Flora probiotics?
Renew Life guarantees that when stored appropriately, every probiotic we make will meet its potency claim until the expiration date listed on the package.
23. Why does your website say that Renew Life products and Ultimate Flora probiotics haven’t been evaluated by the FDA?
Renew Life distributes dietary supplements, which fall into a different regulatory category than drugs. Under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires a standard disclaimer for products that benefit a function of the human body (such as promoting digestive and immune health).
24. Which Renew Life probiotics are best for taking on the go?
Our Ultimate Flora Go Packs are the best option if you’re looking for a shelf-stable probiotic you can take on the go. We package them in blister packs to protect each probiotic capsule from moisture, oxygen, and light.

You can find more details about Renew Life’s kid-friendly supplements on our website.
26. Do Renew Life products for kids contain added sugar?
The majority of our products for kids do not contain added sugar. We do have certain formulas that contain added sugar, and we list sugar as an ingredient on those products’ packaging labels. If you have any questions about this, we can be reached at 800-830-1300.
Kids – Probiotics
27. Is it safe for children to take probiotics?
Yes, Renew Life makes probiotic products formulated to be safe for children. Powdered formulas and chewable tablets that can begiven to infants and toddlers are specifically labeled. If you need assistance or more information, we can be reached at 800-830-1800. If you are uncertain about giving your child a probiotic, we recommend consulting with your pediatrician.
28. What are the benefits of your kid-friendly probiotic supplements?
We’ve developed our kid-friendly formulas to address a range of concerns, including digestive and immune health, colon health, nutritional support for developing minds, and relief of occasional diarrhea, constipation, and other tummy troubles.

31. How do I decide which probiotic is right for my child?
It’s a good idea to consult your doctor or health care practitioner before starting your kids on any nutritional supplements. If you are concerned about specific digestive or health issues, you should always first seek medical guidance. Generally speaking, when choosing a probiotic for your child you should consider the potency of the probiotic as well as the form it comes in (for school-age children, chewable tablets, fast-melt tablets, or gummies are a great way to help them get good bacteria added to their diet). If you need assistance or more information, we can be reached at 800-830-1800.
32. Is it safe for babies to take probiotics, and what are the benefits?
Yes. In fact, newborns receive their first “good” or “friendly” bacteria earlier than you might expect – according to one recent study, in the mother’s womb. Taking a probiotic supplement as early as infancy may help promote a healthy balance of intestinal flora to support digestion, and probiotics are considered a safe and gentle way to help support the immune system. You can find more information about probiotics for infants on our website. If you need assistance or more information, we can be reached at 800-830-1800. If you are uncertain about giving your baby a probiotic, we recommend consulting with your pediatrician.

Cleanses – General
44. What are the benefits of cleansing?
Our bodies are exposed to everyday toxins in our air, water, food, and even in our own homes. Over time, those toxins may build up in the body and affect our overall health. For this reason, many health experts recommend regular internal cleansing to help the body more efficiently eliminate toxins and waste. You can read more about natural body cleansing at https://blog.renewlife.com/natural-body-cleansing-what-are-the-benefits-and-where-to-begin/.
45. Is it true that cleanses will require more frequent trips to the bathroom?
While everyone has different bowel habits, Renew Life cleansing systems are not designed to require more frequent bathroom trips. Our colon support products are intended to be taken only in the evening, which allows the colon support formula to work overnight and help promote a normal bowel movement in the morning. If you need assistance or more information, you can reach us at 800-830-1800.
46. Will cleansing flush out vitamins and other supplements?
No. Cleansing herbs function by simply “up-regulating” your detoxification functions. They do not flush out vitamins or other supplements.
47. Why are there different kinds of cleanses?
There are two overall types of cleanses: (1) general total body cleanses and (2) targeted cleanses. At Renew Life, we offer options in both categories.
48. What are Renew Life’s general total body cleanses and how are they different?
Our cleanses in this category include Total Body Cleanse, Cleanse Smart, and Rapid Cleanse. While Total Body Cleanse is a milder formulas that contain whole herbs, Cleanse Smart and Rapid Cleanse are stronger, more advanced formulas with deep-cleansing herbal extracts.
49. What are Renew Life’s targeted cleanses?
Our targeted cleanses include our CANDISmart Yeast Cleansing Formula, our PARASmart Microbial Cleanse, our Liver Detox Organ Cleansing Program. You can read more about the benefits of each targeted cleanse at https://www.renewlife.com/targeted-cleansing.html.
Cleanses – Selecting a cleanse
50. If I’ve never cleansed before, where do I begin?
We recommend beginning with a general total body cleanse such as Renew Life’s Total Body Cleanse. This product contains whole herbs instead of deep-cleansing herbal extracts and are designed for first-time cleansers. If you need assistance or more information, you can reach us at 800-830-1800. If you are uncertain about whether to cleanse, we recommend consulting with your doctor or healthcare practitioner.
51. Are Cleanse Smart and Rapid Cleanse okay for a first-time cleanser to use?
Because Cleanse Smart and Rapid Cleanse are advanced total body cleanses that use deep-cleansing herbal extracts, they are recommended for first-time cleansers who also experience occasional constipation. If you need assistance or more information, you can reach us at 800-830-1800. If you are uncertain about which type of cleanse to select, we recommend consulting with your doctor or healthcare practitioner.
52. Do I need to use a general cleanse like Cleanse Smart before moving on to a targeted formula?
If you have not cleansed or detoxed in the past year, it is a good idea to start with Cleanse Smart and then move on to a targeted formula such as CANDISmart or PARASmart. If you need assistance or more information, you can reach us at 800-830-1800. If you are uncertain about which type of cleanse to select, we recommend consulting with your doctor or healthcare practitioner.

59. Can I open cleanse capsules if I cannot swallow a capsule?
Our CANDISmart and PARASmart capsules should remain intact when you take them. For other Renew Life products, as an alternative to swallowing a capsule, you can empty its contents into a small amount of applesauce, plain yogurt, or other soft food.
60. I’m taking a prescription medication, can I take it while cleansing?
If you are taking medication, we recommend consulting with your healthcare practitioner or doctor before taking any cleanse supplement.
61. Do you have diet suggestions while using cleansing products?
Eating as healthy as possible is very supportive to the detoxification process. Drinking plenty of purified water and increasing your fiber intake is also important.

67. Can I use more than one cleanse at a time?
You should use only one cleanse at a time. If you are uncertain about the timing of your cleanses, we recommend consulting with your doctor or healthcare practitioner.

There’s no need to worry if you forget a dose. Simply continue taking the cleansing product as suggested on the following day. Do not double a dose.
Enzymes – General
69. What are digestive enzymes and why do I need them?
Digestive enzymes are proteins your body makes to help break down the food you eat into usable nutrients that are absorbed in the digestive tract and used throughout the body. They play an important role in every function in the human body, including digestion, breathing, reproduction, elimination, and kidney and liver function.
70. If my body already has enzymes, why would I want to take an enzyme supplement?
Humans used to get a lot more enzymes from their diet than most of us do today. Our foods are depleted of natural enzymes when they are refrigerated, transported, processed, or cooked. In addition, enzyme production decreases with age. There are also several digestive enzymes the human body lacks, including cellulase (needed to break down plant fibers) and phytase (needed to break down the phytic acid found in beans and legumes). If you need assistance or more information, you can reach us at 800-830-1800. If you are uncertain about taking an enzyme supplement, we recommend consulting with your doctor or healthcare practitioner.
71. What kinds of enzymes does Renew Life offer and what do they do?
Renew Life offers a range of plant-based enzymes that promote optimal digestion so that you can feel comfortable and get the most nutrients from your food. Our enzymes help maximize digestion of a broad range of foods, prevent occasional gas, bloating, and indigestion, and promote a healthy intestinal environment. You can find more details about our enzymes on our website.
72. Why do you offer several different types of enzymes? How are they different?
While all of our enzymes aid in digestion, we have developed specialized formulas to also target specific concerns such as gas, heartburn, microbial balance, bloating and indigestion, and pH balance. In addition, we offer targeted enzymes developed for women, adults over 50, and kids.
Enzymes – Ingredients and selecting an enzyme

CATEGORY: FISH OILS
90. Why should I consider taking a fish oil supplement?
Fish oil supplements supply the essential fatty acid Omega-3. (Essential fatty acids are good-for-you fats used by every cell in your body to support and manage vital functions.) Because the body produces very little Omega-3 on its own and because most Americans don’t get enough from food alone, taking a daily fish oil supplement can help supply additional Omega-3 fats. You can read more about Omega-3 at https://blog.renewlife.com/omega-3-what-is-it-and-how-much-do-i-need/.
91. What are the benefits of taking fish oil supplements?
The healthy fats found in oily fish have been shown to promote heart health, in part due to their natural anti-inflammatory properties. These healthy fats include Omega-3 EPA and DHA(a polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid). Both Omega-3 EPA and DHA are beneficial. EPA is best known for supporting cardiovascular health, healthy cholesterol levels, and a healthy mood, and it has also been linked to joint health and immune function support. DHA is best known for supporting eye health and brain function.
92. Will I experience a “fishy” taste if I take a fish oil supplement?
You don’t have to worry about a “fishy” taste with Renew Life’s Norwegian Gold supplements. We make them with enteric-coated soft gels so that the fish oil is delivered directly to the intestines for better absorption and no fishy aftertaste.
93. What type of fish is used to make Norwegian Gold fish oils?
Renew Life Norwegian Gold contains molecularly distilled purified fish oils from smaller fish such as anchovies and sardines.
94. What is the purity and potency of Norwegian Gold fish oils, and how is this verified?
To ensure purity and potency, each batch of our Norwegian Gold fish oils undergoes third-party testing by the International Fish Oil Standards (IFOS). IFOS testing verifies that the manufacturer’s certificate of analysis is accurate.
95. What is the potency of Norwegian Gold® Super Critical Omega?
Norwegian Gold Super Critical Omega is a verified maximum-strength fish oil supplement with 1,000 mg of Omega-3 in each softgel capsule. It is super concentrated to 95% total Omegas, and also contains 1000 IU Vitamin D3 per capsule.
