Certain factors change our microbial communities, leading to the loss of beneficial microbes, over proliferation of unhealthy microbes, and the loss of diversity:
Psychological factors, like stress, and sleep problems, have been found to reduce microflora. New research has found that just as we have sleep rhythms, so do our bacteria.
Digital addiction and lack of physical activity have been found to alter gut microflora – less movement equals less diversity of bacteria in the gut!
Antibiotics in prescriptions and in the food supply not only knock out select bacteria – once these bacteria have died, so do the others that were dependent on them.
Environmental toxins, alcohol and tobacco have been found to alter the ratio of good to bad bacteria, causing what is known as dysbiosis, which translates to “life in distress.”
Diet creates changes in the microbiome. Certain foods feed the good bacteria in our gut while others do not. What’s for certain is that we are eating too much of the not so good stuff and not enough of the good.
What Makes our Probiotics different?
1 Superior Formula
2 Highly Controlled Process
3 Targeted Delivery of Healthier, Heartier Strains
4 Shelf Stable Blister Pack
Put simply, advanced gut health probiotic delivers more tenacious, viable bacteria to your gut. Our formula combines 15 strains carefully selected for their abilities to repair and restore. The strains are treated with the utmost care – in a temperature and humidity-controlled environment, they are cleaned to remove toxins and weak cells, ensuring that only the strongest and fittest remain. A vegan, delayed-release capsule with a fermented prebiotic ensures that the strains pass through the stomach acid, taking 45 minutes to reach the gut where they thrive. Research shows that our encapsulation process delivers up to 10x more bacteria to you!
Specific Strains for Whole Body Health
A probiotic is a type of bacteria that has been identified as a genus (e.g lactobacilli or bifidobacteria), species (e.g. acidophilus) and strain (e.g. A058). Each type of probiotic has specific effects on the human body – we carefully selected these strains for whole body health.
Probiotics can be recommended to virtually anyone – for maintenance of good health and management of certain conditions, from allergies to osteoporosis! According to scientists at University of Toronto, “Probiotics can be recommended for prevention of diseases that are associated with altered intestinal ecology… their use should be considered in patients of all ages.”
When probiotics need to be refrigerated is that because of stability issue?
Yes, because the manufacturers of these products do not utilize the same technology as used for advanced gut health to make their strains room-temperature stable. This includes cleaning the cells and processing them in a humidity controlled environment to maintain only the heartiest cells, and finally packaging them in a blister cap to maintain the integrity of the capsule.
Is the packaging the only factor in making them self-stable?
No, the entire manufacturing process, from growth, isolation, humidity control, and cleaning of the strains to encapsulation and blister packing results in superior purity and stability.
Is there a difference between enteric coated and targeted delivery?
Enteric coating is one type of method used for targeted delivery. Our plastic free vegan delayed release capsules are preferable due to their clean label and vegan stature.
CFU count @ manufacturing?
45 billion for the 15 billion advanced gut health, and 125 billion for the 50 billion advanced gut health. This is also indicated on the label. This overage ensures a potent product when stored at recommended conditions right up to the expiry date.
Which CFU should I take?
We recommend going with a higher CFU during states of high stress, digestive complaints, or during times when antibiotics are used, but beyond that, do what feels best for you! Some people feel great taking 15 billion, while others like to “go big” with 50 billion.
Can advanced gut health probiotic be recommended for pets?
Our pets can benefit just as much as we can from taking a daily probiotic, however your furry friend may benefit from different strains and potencies than you do. Some of the strains contained in advanced gut health probiotic can be found in pet formulas, but we recommend that you seek guidance from your veterinary expert for the use of advanced gut health probiotic in pets.
