Yes, our products are simple and naturally delicious. Our good bacteria are 100% taste free
They are more commonly known as probiotics
The World Health Organisation (WHO) defines probiotics as "live microorganisms, which, when taken in adequate amounts, offer a health benefits'.
In other words probiotics are 'good’ or ‘friendly’ bacteria.
Yes. With most of the common strains of bacteria found in products like yogurt or fermented milks, the bacteria is already alive in the product, feeding off the added sugar that is needed to keep them alive. But the problem is they cant survive the harsh acids found in the stomach, so nearly all of them perish before they reach the gut
Our unique bacteria strain, Bacillus Coagulans, is called a spore forming bacteria. The best way to think of them is as you would a seed. Our good bacteria have naturally hard shell which protects their genetic material and are dormant until they reach their ideal conditions in the gut. They are incredibly good at surviving stomach acid, hot water, freezing, baking and even microwaves!
Our unique BC30 strain of bacteria was subject to scientific tests, using a simulated gastric environment. Using the same methodology all the other commonly found strains of bacteria used in well known dairy yogurt and drink products was tested. The results conclusively showed that our bacteria was at least 10x more effective than any dairy, but actually many hundreds of times more effective when compared with the leading brands. As the data was peer reviewed and published, we use this fact on our packaging to show consumers our point of difference.
None at all. They are completely natural and free from any artificial colours, flavours or preservatives (just like all our food and drinks). Our good bacteria are GMO free, Organic compliant as well as Kosher and Halal certified.
They are coated with minute traces of soy to help them disperse through the foods
Yes. No dairy, gluten or sugar
Feel free to have as many serves as you want, you can’t overdose. It is generally accepted that
around a half a billion cultures, referred to as colony forming units (CFU’s) a day is adequate for a top up for your digestive system. All our products have around 1 billion CFU’s per serve
No. We only suggest them for taste purposes, your make yours the way you know best. Don’t’ worry our good bacteria will always keep doing their thing where it matters most, in the gut!
Absolutely, but as with all good advice, if you have any concerns at all please do ask your GP
Well, it really is enormously complicated and the science is evolving all the time. But here are some things that we do know. Our bodies are roughly 90% non human organisms, mostly in the form of bacteria that live in, on and around us. The biggest concentration of them lives in the gut. These bacteria have genes and directly impact our whole system, from digestion, immunity and even the way we feel. So you can start to see just how important they really are.
