Prebiotic + Probiotic Supplement
Alternative to gut health supplements in plastic packaging.
Everything starts with a healthy gut. This signature PREBIOTIC + PROBIOTIC delivers 15 billion spores per dose and was formulated specifically to help combat symptoms of IBS + long-term digestive issues and to improve your gut health.
Contains 60 capsules.
Why it works
Rather than using a live strain of probiotics, this supplement uses spore-based bacteria in this Prebiotic + Probiotic formula. There are a couple of reasons for this - the first is that these spores lie dormant until they’re “activated” in your small intestine. So no false promises of high doses that die in transit (or sitting on the shelf for months), plus it's room-temperature stable, so no refrigeration necessary.
Once the spores activate in your small intestine, they begin to multiply, creating more and more good bacteria. The strain used, Bacillus Coagulans, has been proven to work well for those suffering from IBS. A 2016 double-blind placebo trial found a vast improvement in common IBS symptoms including abdominal pain, gas, constipation, diarrhea, and bloating.
Prebiotic + Probiotic contains both prebiotics and probiotics which makes it a synbiotic. If you think of probiotic bacteria as a seed, the prebiotic is a fertilizer: It encourages the good bacteria to grow and multiply, giving it the best chance of survival in your gut.
The difference between this probiotic and other strains is that Bacillus Coagulans is naturally protected with a proteinaceous “cocoon” that allows it to withstand the harsh effects of heat, oxygen, ultraviolet rays, and stomach acid. As soon as B. coagulans hits the alkaline environment of the small intestine, the protein shell dissolves and the organism activates. It's worth remembering that most other probiotic strains don't usually make it past your stomach acid.
Additionally, this supplement uses vegan delayed-release capsules, which are free from gelatin and plasticizers, these add a further layer of protection against stomach acid without the need for heavily processed “acid-resistant” properties during manufacturing.
