Gut Health – Probiotics
Advance Your Gut Health
Designed With Your Gut in Mind
Multiple strains promote a healthy and diverse gut ecology. That's why we select 15 human strains in a balanced formula.
Grown with care
The strains are grown with care in a temperature and humidity controlled environment.
Strains are triple-cleaned to remove toxins and weak cells for an allergen-free, stable, and pure probiotic blend.
We pack them with a generous overage of bacteria so by the time they expire, they still contain the CFU printed on the label.
We encapsulate them in a unique, vegan, plastic-free, delayed-release capsule that delivers up to 10x the bacteria to the gut.
Meet Our Capsule
Tough & acid-resistant
Probiotic capsules must survive the harsh acidic environment in your stomach in order to deliver the probiotic bacteria to your gut alive.
Timing is everything
Our capsule is delayed-release, and it’s vegan and plastic-free. It resists acid and arrives to the gut intact†.
A human clinical study found that our capsules make it to the small intestine 45 minutes after standard capsules (2), and our caps deliver up to 10x the bacteria to the gut (3)
Frequently Asked Questions
Should I take a probiotic?
Yes! Probiotics can be recommended to virtually anyone – for maintenance of good health and management of certain conditions.
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.
I eat yogurt. Do I still need to take a probiotic?
Yes, we believe you do! Did you know that majority of probiotic yogurts only have about 4 species of beneficial bacterial and 1 billion CFU? With advanced gut health probiotics, you get a whopping 15 human strains and a therapeutic dose of 15 or 50 billion CFU per capsule!
Whether from yogurt or a probiotic supplement, it’s crucial that the bacteria arrive alive! This is why we house our probiotics in a delayed-release vegan capsule. This ensures survival through the acidic conditions of the stomach. The bacteria in the yogurt might not be so lucky…
Lastly, consistency is key and it can be hard to get your daily dose of yogurt while busy or traveling. Our probiotic is shelf-stable and easy to take with you wherever you go!
When’s the best time to take a probiotic – with or without food?
Probiotics are best taken away from food. This is because your stomach acid increases when you eat. Your stomach acid is around the same pH as battery acid, making it a pretty tough environment for probiotic capsules. When you eat food, your stomach acid increases in order to help to break it down for digestion in the small intestine. So a good game plan is to take a probiotic when you know that your stomach acid is not at its peak.
In experimental studies, advanced gut health probiotic was found to deliver up to 10x the bacteria to the gut when taken without food. If you like to take your probiotic with food, all is not lost – advanced gut health probiotic will still deliver up to 4x the bacteria to your gut.
Why are multi-strain probiotics better than single-strain?
When it comes to a healthy gut ecology, quantity of bacteria matters, but diversity is equally as important! Different strains provide different benefits to the body, and multiple strains serve to support a diverse microbiome. In 75% of the cases where studies evaluated multi-species probiotic formulas vs. individual species, the multi-strain formula was more effective.
What is the CFU at manufacture?
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.
Is there a difference between enteric-coated and targeted delivery?
Enteric coating is one type of method used for targeted delivery, but enteric-coated capsules can contain plasticizers and phthalates. Our plastic-free vegan delayed release capsules are preferable due to their clean label and vegan stature. A human study found that our capsules survive the harsh environment of the stomach, reaching the small intestine 45 minutes after standard capsules.
Can pets benefit from taking probiotics?
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.
