My main focus when creating products is targeting the root causes of chronic illness. As you may know, the root I’m most passionate about is gut dysbiosis, otherwise known as an overabundance of pathogenic or ‘unproductive’ bacteria, and a shortage of probiotic (health-supporting) bacteria. In healthy individuals, the balance of pro-to-pathogen should be around 80/20, but unfortunately for many of us this ratio has traveled far from the ideal. This is due to a myriad of factors, including the overuse of antibiotics, our descent from real whole foods, xenobiotics in our environment (from chlorine in our water to pesticides in our food), stress, medications, and more. Scientists are now also pointing to a “generational loss,” where because of these factors, babies are coming into the world with far less beneficial strains than their mothers. (Studies show that critical B. infantis, for example, is missing or low in many infants and children. These children have a 6x higher incidence of allergies than those with healthy levels!)
When these probiotic strains aren’t taking up residence in our guts, pathogens have their chance to overgrow and create symptoms. The effect this has had on our health as a collective is staggering, as autoimmune disorders and unexplained chronic illnesses are exploding. While medical researchers once thought autoimmune disease was attributed to the body “attacking itself,” evidence is quickly mounting showing that rather, the body is attacking constant low-grade bacterial infections that should have been destroyed by our healthy microbiome army.
(For example, a study across the US & Norway found that those suffering with systemic sclerosis had higher levels of inflammation-causing pathogenic bacteria and lower levels of protective, anti-inflammatory bacteria compared to individuals without the autoimmune disease. One of the authors relayed that “the results of our research suggest that patients with systemic sclerosis have a unique lower gastrointestinal microbial consortium characterised by increased pathobiont organisms and decreased beneficial commensal organisms.” The study proposes that probiotics may aid restoring gut bacterial balance in those suffering from autoimmune disease).
The bottom line is, YOUR GUT MATTERS. I know you’ve heard that your immune system depends entirely on your gut flora, and new research is published daily linking that microflora to a range of health indications from general mood and sleep quality to levels of anxiety and depression. My hope for the future of medicine is that emphasis is shifted to repairing the microbiome first and foremost. I want to do my part in that revolution by offering a healing tool that allows you to repair, repopulate, and get stronger every day. A healthier gut population means better sleep and immunity, less pain and fatigue, more energy, and improved digestion.
You’re not average, so your probiotic shouldn’t be either. Trust your gut and give us a try on your healing journey. We are here to help in any way we can!
- Prebiotics – Food for the “good guys” so they can take back their turf from those pesky pathogens. Our organic, plant-based VITAFIBER balances the pH of your gut, helps destroy unproductive (“bad”) bacteria, and acts as food for your probiotic army so they stick around and build a village! Studies show that prebiotic fiber ALONE may lower body fat in obese children by selectively feeding the beneficial bugs that control inflammation, blood sugar regulation, and hormone health. When you combine this unique type of fiber with anti-inflammatory strains, it’s a winning combination.
- Microencapsulation technology – Our 20 billion CFU are micro-encapsulated to ensure their survival in the acidic environment of the stomach. As customers who do their research, we always want to get our money’s worth; we’ve ensured that our capsules will make it through the long journey to exactly where they need to be.
- Fermented enzymes – We’ve included digestive enzymes to assist gut health and nutrient absorption by helping you break down your food and beat the bloat. This is especially helpful for those who have been suffering from any type of digestive disorders, pain, bloating, etc. These enzymes also make our probiotic a great digestive aid for any meal.
1. How does your probiotic differ from what’s out there?
Not only does our probiotic contain a whopping 20 billion CFU per capsule, it also features: a) fermented digestive enzymes so that you can take them with hard-to-digest meals even while traveling, b) prebiotic fiber to feed and fuel the beneficial bugs, and c) microencapsulation technology which has been shown in studies to improve probiotic survival during gastric transit. This ensures the good bacteria makes it through the acidic environment of the stomach. It was also essential that my probiotic was shelf-stable, as probiotics are what keep me regular when I’m traveling or on vacation. (This is where the digestive enzymes are extremely helpful as well, since I can’t always eat my normal diet on the road or at social events!) No detail was overlooked, because when I couldn’t find a probiotic that hit all my marks, I made my own.
2. When should I take this?
You can either take it on an empty stomach, or with a meal if you need extra digestive support.
Love the product only downfall is usually out of stock. Next time buying 3 at a time!
I have taken this for about a month. The first thing i noticed was that there was a drastic reduction of diarehha/constipation during my period. I don’t know why but whenever I come on my period my stomach/gas is out of control, much better this cycle and more complete bm. Thank you for this product.
I’ve been using the probiotics at night since Thats when it’s tecommended to take them while on the Parapro formula, so in the beginning I couldn’t notice much of a difference but one day in like the tenth day in I forgot to take the probiotics and it made a huge difference in how I felt! So, so far I like how I feel taking them and the fact that’s it’s effects are long term is great! I would definitely purchase these again.
This probiotic is AMAZING! I’ve dealt with bloating after meals and stomach discomfort for years and other probiotics I have tried have helped only a little bit. The first day I tried this probiotic, my stomach issues almost completely disappeared! I was on 50 Billion before too and was worried that only 20 billion in this probiotic wouldn’t be enough, but it’s really quality over quantity here! Thank you so much Olivia this is amazing!!
This is literally the best probiotic I have ever used — I have been suffering from bloating, brain fog, and jawline acne on and off the past 7 years or so, this means I have tried everything you could possibly dream of trying to get my gut back to itself again. I have tried numerous probiotics and nothing compares to this unique formula. It is the only probiotic I have tried that really never bloats me at all. I feel more energetic when I take them, my skin clears up and most importantly my gut feels amazing! Thank you Olivia, this has been a life saver. I travel a lot and these are my holy grails when traveling as they don’t need to be refrigerated!
Hi! Any idea when this will be back in stock?
I ran out of this product and went back to the probiotic I was using before, since I had some left over. This product was clear cut better for my body, which was made sooo obvious by BM’s! The name is perfect, it is truly not your average probiotic. I will be sticking with this probiotic as long as my body feels it’s needed <3
