Dr. Atmika Paudel, PhD says... The information presented below about the bacteria in Custom Probiotics 11-Strain probiotic powder is medically correct.
Custom Probiotics 11-strain probiotic powder is a very good alternative for those that have a problem taking capsules. It is a great probiotic for children and those that seem to need higher doses without having to take 8 or more capsules. It is also good for those that don't respond to the CP-1 formula with its five strains of good bacteria. Many times you will respond to the 11 strains because of the additional six strains.
The doses are very high which is what you need when combating yeast infections. 1 gram of this probiotic powder contains a guaranteed 260 billion good bacteria. An adult scoop is 0.8 grams and has 200 billion bacteria. A child's scoop is 0.1 gram and contains 25 billion bacteria. Independent lab testing quite often shows 500 billion bacteria per gram.
There is no maximum dose for adults or children so if you have to, they can take an adult scoop or two every day or anywhere in between. It's all a matter of what works for them.
Everyone is different when it comes to doses because no two people's intestinal bacterial profiles are identical. One person may have more strains than another, or overall more bacteria numbers than the other. The two biggest reasons for this variation are diet and the use of antibiotics. Therefore, you have to find the dose that works for you.
To find your probiotic powder dose or your child's dose, start at 1 scoop first thing in the morning taken with non chlorinated water. Do not eat for at least 30 minutes after. If after 5 days you are not happy with the results, add a scoop at bedtime and continue for another 5 days. If you are still not happy with the results, double the doses. At some point you will find the dose that works for you or your child. I should add that if you get your dose up to 8 adult scoops a day and it is not making any difference at all, then this probiotic is probably not for you. Quite frankly, if that dose doesn't work? I'm not sure what will?
The 11-Strain probiotic contains the same five probiotic species as CP-1 and they are:
The additional bacteria in the 11-strain probiotic powder and their functions in the body are:
Lactobacillus salivarius has been found in the human digestive tract to be an immune system stimulator. It has been found to inhibit pathogens in humans and alleviate intestinal disease. It produces lactic acid and hydrogen peroxide, which kills disease producing bad bacteria and yeasts.
In 2017, a study performed by eight medical scientists from Jagiellonian University Medical College in Poland, found that L. salivarius inhibited the formation of Candida biofilms in the mouth. It also inhibited its ability to shift to its pathogenic hyphael form.
Lactobacillus casei is found in the human intestine and mouth. It produces lactic acid, which kills harmful bacteria and helps boost production of good bacteria. It has a wide pH range and compliments the growth of Lactobacillus acidophilus. It also produces the enzyme amylase, which helps with food digestion.
Lactobacillus lactis is another lactic acid producer. It has been found to prevent the growth of bad bacteria and molds.
Bifidobacterium longum inhibits the growth of bad bacteria and is one of the first bacteria to colonize infants. It can also be found in the female vaginal tract. It has been found to prevent and relieve diarrhea, reduce cholesterol, inhibit the growth of bad bacteria and boost immune function.
Bifidobacterium breve is one of the major species of bacteria to be found in infants. It also inhabits the vaginal tract. It helps with allergies, diarrhea, ibs and flatulence. It combats E. coli and helps control yeast over growth caused by Candida species. It has the unique ability to be able to digest plant fibers that are considered indigestible. Levels normally go down as we age so supplementing usually helps everyone.
Most importantly, scientists Mendonça FH and Associates from the Basic Institute of Biosciences, University of Taubaté in Brazil, found B. breve when combined with L. casei reduced oral candida numbers in the mouth, and raised IgA levels.
Bifidobacterium infantis helps reduce inflammation in the colon by stabilizing abnormal interleukin ratios. It helps alleviate IBS symptoms, flatulence, diarrhea, bloating and constipation.
The 11-Strain formula does NOT contain: Dairy, sugar, gluten, soy,
corn, casein, yeast, egg, artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, FOS or
any Genetically Modified or engineered ingredients. They do not utilize
milk, milk derivatives, galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) or inulin as
added ingredients in the fermentation media.
Just like CP-1 the 11-Strain probiotic powder does not have to be refrigerated for short periods of time. However, it is suggested you do so to maintain full potency.
It can be added to an enema or douche to be introduced directly into the colon or vagina. Please be sure to use Non-chlorinated water when you do this. Chlorine kills bacteria whether it's good or bad.
The 11-Strain probiotic powder is not only very beneficial for the human body, but it is clearing skin problems when nothing else would.
Dr. Vibhuti Rana, PhD says...
The information regarding various bacterial strains used in the CP-11 formula of probiotics is medically correct. This cocktail of bacteria containing various strains of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium is highly effective when it comes to restoring the microbial balance of the Human gut. It is very well known that Lactobacillus species such as L. acidophilus, L. plantarum, and L. casei. These strains have a remarkable property of sticking/adhering to the intestinal walls and urogenital tracts and prohibit the invasion by pathogens and bad bacteria (1).
In a recent study conducted in women suffering from vulvovaginal candidosis (VVC), a Lactobacillus rhamnosus, L. plantarum, and L. pentosus strain-comprising mixture gel was applied. PCR, culture and 16S rRNA techniques were used to find that there was a significant improvement in the VVC symptoms, and 45% women did not require medication when these probiotic-based gel was used (2). It also helped to relieve the bacterial vaginosis (BV) symptoms temporarily (studies to enhance their colonization are still progressing for their long-lasting effects to cure VVC and BV) (3).
Besides, studies also describe how obesity, diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, malignancy, liver disease, and inflammatory bowel diseases can be regulated and kept in check with the use of probiotic species containing Bifidobacterium species and Lactobacillus. Research also shows that by cross feeding phenomenon, Bifidobacterium bifidum significantly increased metabolic activity when cocultured with Bifidobacterium breve, ultimately giving rise to beneficial bacteria in the gut (4). Interestingly, a combination of Lactobacillus helvaticus and Bifidobacterium longum reduced post-myocardial infarction depression symptoms and restores intestinal permeability in a rat model (5).
Considering all these studies and what’s been mentioned in the article, this probiotic product would be of great benefit for the gut and overall well-being.
The article above talks about CP-11 probiotic formula. I am not endorsing any of the products, but I would like to mention here that the probiotic bacteria mentioned above have beneficial roles to human health as mentioned in the article. I have already given my comments regarding CP-1 formula in this webpage.
In this commentary, I would be adding information about six additional strains that the article says are included in CP-11 formula. Some of the bacteria such as Lactobacillus casei, L. longum, L. plantarum, Bifidobacterium lactis, and B. breve are included in Profase which I have given commentary in this page.
Lactobacillus salivarius has been found to be beneficial in people with irritable bowel syndrome (1) and atopic dermatitis (2). L. salivarius is also found to be beneficial in case of pancreatic necrosis when given together with other probiotic bacteria such as Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium infantis, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei, and Lactococcus lactis. (3)
Among the strains of L. casei, L. casei DN-114001, and L. casei Shirota have been extensively studied and are widely available as functional foods.(4)
Similarly, Bifidobacterium infantis has been shown to be effective in irritable bowel syndrome.(5)
Usually, probiotic bacteria have been used without problem in several cases, however; in some of the cases such as in infants and immunocompromised conditions, probiotics have been linked with risk of sepsis. (6).

Thank you for having such a wonderful product!! It has helped my daughters eczema a lot, it is expensive but worth it and I have searched and searched, nothing else out there like it :-)
Dan, I just placed my first reorder of Biofase, Profase and the 11-strain probiotic. I think I've read at least half your website and I'm excited at the results I'm experiencing in less than two weeks. Skin is clearing up, eyes are clearing up, the bottom of my feet do not itch anymore, and I wake up with energy that lasts all day long. Thank you for your commitment to inform people of this knowledge!
Thank you sooo much Dan,
My 24 year old daughter is still 100% free of the horrible dermatitis/eczema that had been all over her beautiful face for many years!!! ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, natural or drug store, would ever touch it, ...until I met you and you told me about the 11-Strain probiotic!!! It has probably been at least 4-5 months now and her face and skin are still perfect!!! We are all amazed!!! And I thank God that I met you!!! It has been a miracle in her life!!!
I'm very happy to say that my eczema is completely gone!! The skin on my thumb is soft and back to normal, the combination between the 11-strain probiotics and the diet have cured it. I'm eternally grateful to you!
I just donated to your cause, and will continue to do so, as I truly believe that your protocol is healing my body. These were my symptoms: daily, very intense headaches; horrible rash on my armpits and butt; anxiety attacks; rosacea; skin itching; severe allergy issues in fall and spring; severe joint pain in hands and knees; sleep deprivation; constant mucous in back of throat; ear ache; brain fog; irritable bowel syndrome symptoms...and more, I'm sure!
Since being on your diet and protocol, including the 11-strain probiotic, all of the above symptoms are either gone or greatly cleared up. I read testimonials and always wonder if they are, in fact, true, or if I would ever be one to write one. Well, I am so relieved and happy to be at this moment in my healing to write to tell you that your work is so powerful and very effective. I will continue my end of the healing process as I go through all the rotations of the systemic yeast protocol.
I thank you again for your commitment to healing!
I am soooo happy to say, after adding in the extra probiotic, giving the coconut oil, epsom salt baths, a paleo diet,and half an allergy tablet. Jane's rash is 98% gone!!! In about 2 weeks of elimination. We are talking 7+ years of this stupid itchy rash.
I just cant thank people like you enough, for putting the information out there and educating us, when doctors, with all the training they get, are of little use, and do not educate us.
I also found a woman who wrote about you and read her website she had in there about food grade hydrogen peroxide for white tongue coating. I tried it yesterday and after 20+ years of this tongue issue, I woke up this morning and my tongue is still pink.
Thank you for your research and your replies from the bottom of my heart! This is all so important, words just cant express.
I do love the Biofase, Profase, and the custom 11 strain probiotics.
At first I tried your products without doing the ultimate colon cleanse and diet and it did not get rid of the candida glabrata yeast infection. I finally decided to follow the protocol exactly, with the ultimate colon cleanse, and the candida diet and it worked. It took at least 4 months but I got rid of it and now my face is so clear. I have always had acne and rosacea, but since Biofase and your probiotics, my skin is so noticeably clear. I think I'll keep taking these for maintenance.
Thank you again.
