Restore proper digestive health, fortify your immune system and reintroduce your gut to healthy bacteria and enzymes with Hero Probiotics.
The gut microbiota is the collection of trillions of microorganisms residing in our intestines. It plays a central role in metabolism, physiology and nutrition and it’s estimated that the human gut contains anywhere between 500 and 1,000 different species of microorganisms. An impressive and growing list of scientific publications has shown that obesity and other chronic disease is associated with a lack of microbial diversity within the gut. In other words, if someone has a low number of microbial species in their intestines compare to others, then it’s likely that they may be at risk for adverse chronic, age-related disease and obesity.
The best way to promote a diverse gut microbiota and to gain the upper-hand on the bad microbes in our body is to eat a diverse diet containing plenty of vegetables and fruits with prebiotic fiber. You should also consume probiotic-containing foods and supplements such as daily-use Hero Probiotics. Probiotics work to maintain balance in the intestinal flora. By enhancing the intestinal flora, probiotics promote healthy digestion and immunity.
Hero Probiotics is a daily use probiotic supplement that provides 24/7 digestive support thanks to clinically proven strains such as B. subtilis DE111, which naturally:
30 Billion Colony Forming Units (CFU) for Maximum Health Benefits
With 30 billion beneficial organisms, Hero Probiotics is considered a high-potency blend for maximum health benefit. Many top selling probiotic brands contain 5 billion organisms or less. Meanwhile, Hero Probiotics contains 6x that number of live, beneficial organisms. Our flagship strain, Bacillus subtilis DE 111 is naturally resistant to harsh environments and survives room temperature and the stomach to arrive in your intestine to begin producing immediate health benefits.
10 Probiotics Stains for Supreme Effectiveness
Diversity is key and Hero Probiotics offers 10 different strains of good bacteria for supreme effectiveness. Hero Probiotics strains include Bacillus species, Lactobacillus species, and Bifidobacterium species to effectively work against the negative effects of poor diet, broad-spectrum antibiotics, stress and other environmental factors that deplete the gut microbiota. Check out the Hero Probiotic species listed below and learn more about their proven benefits.
Naturally Resistant Spore-Forming Probiotics
Some probiotic supplements are coated with synthetic chemicals that are designed to resist the harsh environment of the stomach. Unfortunately, these time-release capsules cause upset stomach, bloating and gas. Hero Probiotics contains naturally resistant probiotic strains that do not upset the stomach and provide support for digestive function.
Bacillus subtilis DE 111
Crowds out bacterial pathogens
Supports the normal immune function of intestinal cells. Maintains healthy gut flora by crowding out bacterial pathogens to allow proliferation of beneficial bacteria. Produces quorum-sensing molecules that communicate to intestinal cells to help maintain tight junctions and intestinal barrier function. Promotes proper digestion and nutrient absorption by supporting the normal breakdown of complex carbohydrates and fats.
Promotes healthy serum cholesterol levels
Supports maintenance of healthy serum cholesterol levels, improves abdominal pain and bloating associated with irritable bowel syndrome patients, increases immune response to viral challenges. May be effective in treating and preventing Clostridium difficile associated diarrhea.
Decreases frequency of vaginal yeast infections
Prevents the overgrowth of pathogenic microorganisms and protects against occasional bouts of diarrhea, gas and bloating. Relieves symptoms associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Decreases the frequency of vaginal yeast infections and urinary tract infections.
Supports healthy immune function
Enhances natural immune function in healthy individuals. Increases the proportion of total helper and activated T cells and other important immune modulating cells. Has an immune-modulatory effect in individuals suffering from seasonal allergic rhinitis resulting in diminished allergic symptoms.
Supports stress reduction
Supports gut-brain health by reducing stress-induced anxiety and depression-related behavior in animal models. Recent studies have shown that at least one strain of L. rhamnosus may contribute to weight loss in women who are dieting. Other studies have demonstrated that strains may support skin heath and protect against various infectious diarrhea’s.
Supports host immune responses
Establishes a mutualistic relationship with intestinal cells and modulates host immune responses, supporting normal immune function even during stress-induced challenges such as pathogen invasion. Suppresses the expression of inflammatory mediators in intestinal epithelial cells.
Promotes healthy digestion of nutrients
One of the first colonizers of the human gastrointestinal tract, B. breve strains are numerically prevalent in healthy breast-fed infants. Assists in the breakdown and fermentation of some plant polysaccharides that cannot be digested by humans. Generates short chain fatty acid metabolites that have anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor properties.
Promotes healthy intestinal barrier function
Keeps disease-causing microorganisms from flourishing. Supports healthy intestinal barrier function to prevent harmful bacteria from entering the bloodstream. Maintains intestinal lining and is one of several probiotics that may be useful in treating Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
Store in a cool & dry place. Probiotics are living organisms and like all living things, they are perishable. It's best to store Hero Probiotics in the refrigerator prior to use. Some probiotic supplement companies claim that refrigeration is not needed however that is incorrect. All probiotics - especially probiotics that do not contain naturally-resistant spore formers such those found in Hero Probiotics - require refrigeration. We guarantee the shelf life of Hero Probiotics but to maximize the potency of our product, and any probiotic, it is best to store in a cold place.
Do not purchase large bottles with more that a 30 day supply. When a bottle of probiotics is opened and the vacuum seal is broken, moisture begins to degrade the efficacy of the probiotic because living microorganisms begin to die off. That is why we only sell Hero Probiotics in 30 day supplies. Other probiotics that are sold with 60 and 90 day servings can degrade over time. Never purchase a bottle of probiotics with more than a 30 day supply. We include a desiccant pack within each bottle of Hero Probiotics to further ensure that moisture does not damagfe our probiotics. Furthermore, unlike other probiotics, we store Hero Probiotics under refrigeration and manufacture our product in small batches to ensure that we deliver probiotics that are freshly made.
Take one tablet of Hero Probiotics per day. With 30 Billion live organisms per capsule, Hero Probiotics contains more living organisms per capsule than other leading probiotic supplements. Hero Probiotics contains organisms that are resistant to stomach acids and are able to reach deep into your intestine to deliver healthy results. It is okay to take more than one tablet - especially if you intend to travel or have not been eating as well at you like.
Its OK to take Hero Probiotics on an empty stomach or with food. Unlike time-release probiotics that contain synthetic chemicals, Hero Probiotics is completely natural - with soil-based organisms that are naturally resistant to the harsh environment of the stomach.
"I bought Hero Probiotics because it contains a diverse set of different probiotics. In addition to Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium (all probiotic brands contain these two types) - Hero also contains Bacillus subtilis and Bacillus coagulans. I take probiotics in order to offer additional diversity to my gut flora and Hero Probiotics offers the diversity that I am looking for. I will buy more bottles when I run out of the one I just purchased. It is great product and I feel wonderful!" - Amazon Customer

What is a probiotic?
Probiotics are “good” bacteria that help keep your intestines healthy and assist in digestion and nutrient absorption. Probiotics are live microorganisms, which, when administered daily and in adequate amounts, confers a health benefit on your body.
How does it work?
Hero ProbioticsTM controls bacterial populations in the gut by crowding out bad bacteria such as E. coli, making room for the growth of “good” bacteria. The good bacteria in Hero ProbioticsTM bind to the epithelial cells of the intestinal lining and increase in number; this promotes a stronger intestinal lining to protect against immune responses to food molecules that may be interpreted by the body as foreign objects. Hero ProbioticsTM supports digestive and general health by producing enzymes that aid in the digestion of dietary fats and complex carbohydrates into beneficial by products such as small chain fatty acids (SCFA).
Is Hero Probiotics fresher than other brands?
All probiotics are live microorganisms and like all things perishable, they survive longer under refrigeration or freezing. Studies have demonstrated that probiotics die off at a rate of 15% per month when stored at room temperature. Hero ProbioticsTM contains spore-forming bacteria that are naturally resistant to degradation at room temperatures.
Other probiotic brands claim that they have "manufactured" their products using "patented" techniques to be more stable at room temperature. This means that synthetic chemicals have been added to their products to extend stability. Hero ProbioticsTM does not rely upon synthetic chemicals to extend stability at room temperature, we use probiotic strains that are naturally strong and resilient. The vegetable-based capsules used to create Hero ProbioticsTM do not contain unnatural materials that require patents and you can be sure that every capsule is all-natural.
Hero ProbioticsTM has been formulated with a diverse set of beneficial bacteria including Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium and Bacillus species. Unlike Bacillus species, which are spore-forming bacteria, the Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species in Hero ProbioticsTM are non spore-formers and are susceptible to degradation. Consequently, your probiotics should be stored in a dry and cool place. If a cool place is not available, we recommend that you store your probiotics in a refrigerator or freezer.
Our probiotics have an expiration date of two years after manufacter. We make every effort to sell our products as close to the manufacture date as possible. Prior to shipping Hero ProbioticsTM we store them under refrigeration at our warehouses. Unlike other brands that sit on retail store shelving for months at a time, our probiotics are delivered directly to your front door.
Also, once a bottle of probiotics is opened and the air tight seal on the bottle is disturbed, moisture in the air begins to erode the activity of probiotics. Therefore, it is important to consume your probiotics within thirty days of opening the bottle. That is why Hero ProbiotcsTM contain desiccant to limit the damaging effects of moisture and are only sold in 30 day servings.
Hero ProbioticsTM guarantees a fresh product that contains 30 billion CFU as stated on the label. If you are not satisfied with the efficacy of our products, please return the product and we will provide a full refund, no questions asked.

Hero ProbioticsTM are Non-GMO
Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s) are plants or animals that have been genetically changed in the laboratory to promote characteristics that are considered beneficial. For instance, some plants have been injected with bacteria or pesticides to allow the plant to thrive even when it’s doused with chemicals such as insecticides.
Herbicide resistance and pesticide production are the two main traits that have been added to GMO’s and while these traits confer economic benefits to food and chemical companies, they provide no nutritional benefits to consumers. In fact, there is considerable debate within the scientific community with some experts claiming that GMO’s are harmful to health while others dispute that claim.
Currently, GMO’s are prevalent within the U.S. processed food supply. Soy (94%), cotton (90%), sugar beets (95%), and corn (88%) are the most commonly modified crops. Due to their controversial nature, GMO’s are banned as food ingredients in Europe and elsewhere but in the U.S., the FDA has approved their use and does not even require labeling claims on ingredient lists.
At Liberty Bion, we are committed to producing and selling all natural products that are non-GMO. Recently, our flagship probiotic stain, Bacillus subtilis DE111, was granted non-GMO verification by the Non-GMO Project. The Non-GMO Project is the market leader for GMO avoidance and is the most trusted third-party source of verification of non-GMO foods and products.
DE111, a probiotic strain that support digestion and immune health, has been clinically tested. Genetic testing of the stain has shown that it contains no DNA plasmids, antibiotic resistant or other deleterious genes. The DE111 strain is one of ten probiotic stains in the Hero ProbioticsTM formulation. The formulation includes 30 billion organisms in each capsule and is considered a high-potency probiotic.
We are proud to display the “non-GMO” stamp on our Hero ProbioticsTM label because it reflects our commitment to natural foods. Unlike other brands that may include GMO probiotic strains, we are committed to providing strains that are all natural and unmodified.
