The Ultra Flora Product Guarantee

Many products fall short due to various reasons, including not identifying the probiotic strain that is linked to specific health benefits. Additionally, some products have also been found to contain specific contaminants (gluten, mold, yeast, and potentially harmful bacteria), which can cause negative reactions and deleterious health effects in susceptible individuals. Through extensive and rigorous quality control testing, UltraFlora guarantees the highest quality of purity (free of contaminants), potency, and scientifically formulated probiotic formulas that contain genetically identified strains with established health benefits for clinically reliable outcomes* .

As UPS does not deliver on the weekend, some probiotic orders may be held until Monday for shipping so that orders don't get stuck in a UPS warehouse for the weekend during times where certain parts of the country experience extreme heat. We are committed to ensuring you receive your probiotics without the probiotic being compromised by excessive heat. Thank you for your understanding.
Probiotics requiring refrigeration will be shipped with ice packs as a standard from early May to early October. During other months of year, due to mild weather, ice packs are not required. Probiotics need to reach an internal temperature of 122 degrees for over 48 hours before they are compromised.
If you would like your items to be shipped with ice packs from the months of November to April, please indicate that on your order form. Ice packs, on request, are $2.50 per order and we will charge your credit card on file when the order ships.
