The Original GHT Probiotic! For over a decade this superior product has provided selected beneficial microflora to the intestinal tract for the purpose of replenishing needed friendly flora to promote intestinal health. Packaged in individual sachets with a pleasant lemon taste, Threelac fits conveniently into your active lifestyle. ThreeLac is a powerful probiotic formulation of three potent microflora in a lemon-powder base. Probiotics are a valuable part of a healthy diet, and may play an important role in sustaining overall intestinal health. The prevalence of intestinal imbalances makes a focus on probiotics essential. Prevention of imbalance before it occurs is clearly the better alternative. Probiotics may be a safe, cost-effective, "natural" approach that may help act as a barrier against microbial infection. Benefits of Ideal Intestinal Micro-Flora Friendly flora perform a number of constructive functions in the intestinal tract. One main function is to help prevent occasional good/bad flora imbalance. The "good" flora do this by crowding out the "bad" in the intestinal tract.
Some common indicators of flora imbalance may be:
•Melancholy •Anxiety •Irritability •Relief of occasional heartburn •Relief of occasional indigestion •Lethargy •Food and environmental allergies •Lactose intolerance •Acne •Dry skin •Itching •Occasional jock itch •Vaginal health ThreeLac Active Ingredients •Bacillus coagulans: A probiotic organism that may help control occasional digestion and stomach problems. •Bacillus subtilis: A probiotic organism that may help crowd out "bad" flora in the intestines. •Enterococcus faecalis: The Enterococci constitute a major genus within the lactic acid bacteria group, and exists naturally in the human digestive tract. This effective probiotic bacteria is the result of formulation under strict laboratory conditions.
What Makes ThreeLac So Effective?
ThreeLac has been clinically shown to be effective in managing candida yeast overgrowth. This natural, lemon-flavored dietary supplement contains three strains of live lactic acid bacteria — good, “essential” bacteria that starts working immediately to help rid the body of resilient candida organisms, yeast infection, thrush and candidiasis. A Natural Treatment for Candida and Yeast Infections — Without Restrictive Diets or Harmful Drugs Unlike any other candida defense product, each individual particle in ThreeLac is microencapsulated to help get it safely past the stomach’s acidic environment. This is key because for any product to be effective, all of it must be able to make it safely past the stomach’s harsh environment. Once in the intestinal tract, the candida-fighting live bacteria then go to work “dining” on any anaerobic problem organisms (candida yeasts) your body does not need.
Benefits may include: Relief from yeast infections, candida albicans, and thrush Men: effective relief from jock itch, male yeast infection, penile thrush Fast relief from more serious candida symptoms — depression, anxiety, recurring irritability, heartburn, indigestion, lethargy, fogginess, and more Improved digestion and nutrient assimilation Reduced risk of future yeast overgrowth And all from a great-tasting, lemon-flavored powder, individually sealed in convenient and portable packets.
With 60 ThreeLac packets in each container, one order is typically a two-month maintenance supply. Prevent Candidiasis in Your Family ThreeLac is an ideal product for the whole family. That’s because when one person in the family has candida symptoms, other family members could also have candida — or be at risk of developing symptoms.
What is candida? Candida is a dimorphic organism, meaning it can exist in two shapes and forms simultaneously. One form is a yeast-like state that is a non-invasive, sugar-fermenting organism. The other is a fungal form that produces very long root-like structures, called rhizoids, that can penetrate the mucosa and is invasive.
What makes candida bad? Actually, in its yeast form it is beneficial. We all have this form of candida in our bodies. The candida population should be low and indiscernible (no overt symptoms or cloudy saliva). “Friendly” bacteria and a healthy immune system prevent this yeast from becoming an infectious fungus.
It is when our bodies lose their proper immune protection, or the intestinal pH is altered unfavorably, that the organism can change from the yeast form to the fungal form. When this happens, the now-parasitic fungal form penetrates the gastrointestinal mucosa and breaks down the boundary between the intestinal tract and the rest of the circulation in our bodies. This allows partially digested dietary proteins to travel into the bloodstream, where they exert a powerful antigenic (antibody-stimulating) assault on the immune system.
It has been unofficially estimated that a startling 80% of the population may have candidiasis that is out of control!
What causes the change from good to bad? There are many theories. Most naturopaths concur that the conversion happens due to some sort of attack on our immune systems—either prolonged antibiotic use, taking steroids or oral contraceptives on a regular basis, or a high sugar diet. It could be a combination of these. It is also conjectured that candida increases its numbers during periods of stress and lowered immune states.
What are the symptoms of a candida infestation? Typical candida symptoms may include jock itch, depression, dry, itchy, flaky skin, anxiety, recurring irritability or mood swings, heartburn, indigestion, lethargy, food and environmental allergies, joint soreness, chest pain, acne or other skin problems, migraine headaches, recurring cystitis/vaginal infections, premenstrual tension, and menstrual problems.
How does ThreeLac help? As its name implies, ThreeLac contains three forms of spore-forming lactic acid bacteria. These live microorganisms purge your intestinal tract of the parasitic, fungal form of candida. At the same time, ThreeLac helps to balance the pH levels in our bodies.
The secret behind ThreeLac’s effectiveness is the micro-encapsulation process that gets the candida-fighting live bacteria safely past the acidic environment in the stomach. These oxygen-friendly bacteria go to work “dining” on anaerobic problem organisms that you don’t want.
Everyone using Oxygen Elements Plus has provided their body with a head start—you already have created a rich oxygen environment that ThreeLac loves.
How do I take ThreeLac? The suggested use is 1 packet per day, right before you eat a meal. Let it dissolve in your mouth and follow immediately with 4-6 oz. of water. Then eat. Food acts as a buffer to assist ThreeLac in reaching the small intestine, where it helps your body rid itself of the candida parasites.
For stubborn or elevated candida difficulties, you may want to use 2 packets daily for 30 days, and then use 1 packet per day thereafter for maintenance. For more severe candida infestations, you may want to try 4 or 5 packets to start. Always be sure to take a fiber product as well, as outlined in the next question.
Remember that this organism is extremely resilient and difficult to rid from your body. It can take time to re-establish good health. Much patience is required in this process.
What happens when I take ThreeLac? You may be one of a small percentage of people who experience constipation. As the candida organisms are dying off, they collect in the intestines, and your bowel becomes impacted. We recommend that you take a fiber product for the first few days when you start taking ThreeLac. And always drink plenty of water.
If you are typical, you will experience more frequent bowel activity. Stool may be loose and/or more voluminous, as more bowel matter vacates the body.
Will I need to change my diet? There are no dietary restrictions. However, for general health reasons, use common sense and avoid processed sweets. Eat your sweets “raw.” Eat a “good diet” rich in nutritious foods.
What does ThreeLac taste like? It is a pleasant, lemon-tasting powder.
How do I know if I have candida? You can try this simple test to see if you have candida: First thing in the morning, before you put ANYTHING in your mouth, get a clear glass. Fill with water and work up a bit of saliva, then spit it into the glass of water. Check the water every 15 minutes or so for up to one hour. If you have a problem that ThreeLac can help with, you will see strings (like legs) traveling down into the water from the saliva floating on the top, or “cloudy” saliva will sink to the bottom of the glass, or cloudy specks will seem to be suspended in the water. If there are no strings and the saliva is still floating after at least one hour, you probably have candida under control. ThreeLac would then be used to maintain good bowel flora and proper pH.

After one week on Threelac, I no longer had days where I spent in the bed. Now, one month later, I am feeling so great, my energy is up, no more pain. I'm even getting ready to start my own business that I had been delayig because I just couldn't function. One supplier mentioned that you will plateau in your symptom relief. I feel I have reached my plateau point so I will increase my dosage to 3 pack per day for one more month then go down to the one pack per day. To replace the friendly bacteria, I'm also taking Pearl Acidophilus by Enzymatic Therapy. (Which by way contains the 2 strains of bacteria that was added to make Fivelac.)
UPDATE FEB 15, 2011 -- I felt it was important to give an update on my condition since this original review. For that first year, I took the Threelac daily, and progressively I got better and bettter and better. Hallelujah, it felt like life again! I also learned to pay attention to how my body reacts to what I eat. I found that anything high in sugar, be it all natural fruit juice or donuts all made my candida worse and made my symptons return -- foggy thinking, pain in my joints, unbearable tiredness, etc. Which makes sense as I also learned that sugar is the food of candida. During year 2, I was able to go down to maintenance doses, so I probably used about 2 or 3 boxes total that year. By year 3, I wasn't taking Threelac at all. And now here it is past the three year mark and I'm ordering one box of THreelac because I have REALLY been overdoing it on the sugar and junk for the last six months, and it's finally caught up with me. So I'll be taking about 2 packs a day until I feel back to 100%.
I just want to say to any who have tried it and it didn't work for you is that maybe something else will, and I hope you find your solution because this candida crap is no joke. It's literally debilitating. And for all those who are finding success with it, I'm am thrilled for you because I know how it feels to finally find something that works. (Posted on 7/15/13)
