Jarrow Formulas Jarro-Dophilus® Infant is proud to be announced the winner of Probiotic Product of the Year for 2018 by NutraIngredients-USA.

The NutraIngredients-USA Awards, which attracted over 110 entries across 12 categories, recognizes and celebrates the industry's best ingredients, products, projects, platforms, and individuals. We asked a lot of our entrants. To win one of these awards is a significant achievement, said Stephen Daniells, Ph.D., Editor-in-Chief of NutraIngredients-USA.

"Representing two of the three finalists, including the winner, selected by a panel of scientific experts in the field of probiotics for NutraIngredients USA Probiotic Product of the Year is a testament to our focus on science and quality in our formulations, as well as leadership in probiotic formula innovation" said Anthony Thomas, Ph.D., Director, Scientific Affairs at Jarrow Formulas.

**WINNER** Jarro-Dophilus® Infant is a shelf-stable probiotic formulated with a clinically validated strain of Bifidobacterium longum subsp. infantis (B. infantis M-63).  B. infantis is the only bacteria able to use all human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) to limit growth of other bacteria and exploit the full benefits of breast milk in support of intestinal, immune, and brain development in breast-fed infants*.  B. infantis has been associated with improved growth, development of intestinal membrane integrity and immune function. The M-63 strain of B. infantis was isolated from a healthy infant and clinically shown to efficiently colonize the infant gut with oral administration*. 

**FINALIST** Jarro-Dophilus® Women, available in both refrigerated and shelf-stable forms, is a true probiotic for women uniquely formulated with clinically validated vaginal strains representing the predominant vaginal Lactobacillus species found in healthy women. Jarro-Dophilus® Women's patented strains have been shown to be effective at 5 billion in multiple human studies to restore and maintain protective vaginal Lactobacilli levels and lower vaginal pH in support of vaginal microbial ecosystem balance and urinary tract health with oral use.* Each capsule is individually sealed for optimal probiotic stability and protected by Enteroguard®, a proprietary food-grade, a pH-sensitive enteric coating that resists stomach acid for maximal intestinal delivery of live probiotics.
