In the health world, probiotics have become somewhat of a buzzword. Given that they are practically found in just about everything (think: kombucha, yogurts, granola bars, supplements and infant formula), you may just think it’s just another social media-driven fad. But probiotics are all the buzz for a really good reason - they do wonders for your gut microbiota!
Probiotics are the good type of bacteria that live in your gut that fight off harmful bacteria in your body. They interact with other bacteria in your gut and can help promote the growth of good bacteria and hinder the growth of harmful bacteria.
If there aren’t enough probiotics fighting against the harmful bacteria, the equilibrium can be thrown out of balance leading to various gut issues, such as digestive discomfort, food intolerances, bloating and abdominal pain. In other words, balance is key!
Keeping your gut bacteria in balance is a delicate dance, and when the balance is off, your body tends to have a clear way of sending signals (think: hard, lumpy and painful to pass poop). Gut health clearly matters…a lot.
“Probiotic” is more of an umbrella term, there are actually a wide variety of different bacterial strains, and each delivers varying benefits.
We have formulated a 15 Strain Bio Cultures Complex that provides 40 Billion CFU per serving. This high-strength formula has been specifically formulated to aid with common digestive health issues and to help restore the natural balance of good bacteria in the intestines.
The 15 strain Bio Cultures Complex is ideal for repopulating healthy gut bacteria, which is thought to:
- Help relieve constipation, bloating and diarrhoeal symptoms, especially when it comes to IBS
- Help strengthen the intestinal barrier for a happier and healthier gut environment.
Not only does it help create balance in your gut, some of the bio cultures play a key role in helping the gut effectively digest carbohydrates. Great for pizza night!
"I'm very pleased with these. My tummy is immediately much flatter and my digestion is better. I've tried so many different brands of probiotics and most of them made no noticeable difference. I will definitely be sticking with these." - K Halifax
If you're looking for a wider range of bacterial strains to target your gut health, our advanced Pro Bio Cultures Complex with a 60 Billion CFU count could be a good option. We’ve also included Inulin, a prebiotic, that feeds your gut bacteria and positively influences the growth of the beneficial bacteria that live in your gut. Perfect for those who are familiar with taking probiotics!
The strength of this capsule is powerful
"When you learn what enzymes your gut is missing you'll realise this product delivers all the good ones needed. Definitely 1 of the best on the market." - Roxeanne Hardenburg
Most other similar products on the market are not delayed release as their capsules dissolve in the stomach acid. Our Bio Complex 60 billion CFU capsules are resistant to stomach acid allowing them to travel to the intestine where the live bacteria can be the most effective.
Since each of us has a unique gut microbiome, probiotics definitely aren’t a one-size-fits-all kind of deal. But, they certainly are a solid starting point for improving your gut microbiota!
