Why You Need Probiotics
There’s a delicate balancing act that’s occurring in your stomach at this very second. There are two teams of bacteria, “good” bacteria (probiotics) and “bad” bacteria, which call your gut their home.
The ideal balance is about 85% probiotics and 15% “bad” bacteria. When this balance leans too far toward the bad bacteria, it can lead to less than optimal health.*
You need probiotics to help ensure you maintain this balance. It can be difficult, especially if your probiotics are constantly in a state of flux.
For instance, chlorine is a major probiotic killer. It’ll decimate the good bacteria in your gut. Antibiotics are even worse. They’re designed to destroy bad bacteria, but they’re not exactly particular. They attack any kind of microbes in your gut, including the probiotics you’ve taken great care of so far.
You also have to be mindful of:
- Excess sugar consumption
Toxins and stress speak for themselves, but sugar might stand out to you. Bad bacteria feeds on sugar, so you’re essentially feeding the enemy and helping them grow stronger.
So how do you feed your gut without feeding bad bacteria?
With more probiotics, of course (and prebiotics – more on that later). But all probiotic supplements aren’t created equal.
Size Matters, But Not As Much As You Think
A high CFU count can be attractive – big bold numbers clamoring for your attention. 100 Billion. 75 Billion. Yes, those numbers are high and they look like they might be everything you want, but size isn’t everything.
If all those billions of probiotics don’t even make it to your gut, all you’re doing is flushing a lot of money down the drain.
If you’re strictly looking at numbers, then the one you need to look at is the amount of strains in the product. Different strains have different jobs – just like a well-rounded army needs infantry, cavalry, archers, etc, your gut needs a wide variety of probiotics to support your heath effectively.*
Not only that, but each probiotic strain has a different location in your gut that it prefers. So the more strains you find in a probiotic supplement, the better.
You Need Live Probiotics
Your digestive tract ranges from 20-40 feet, but the first 20 inches are the most dangerous for your billions of probiotics. That’s your esophagus and your stomach – the most notable of the two being your stomach.
Your stomach’s job is to sterilize your food and prevent bad bacteria from getting further along. It’s your body’s first real line of defense and strains without natural acid resistance, like lactobacillus acidophilus, burn quickly in its fires.
Assuming your probiotics are able to make it through your stomach, they still have to contend with bile. The difference is that the small intestine is where all your bile is being transported – is the very spot many probiotics prefer to call home. Thankfully, most probiotics are naturally bile-resistant, but they can be weakened and ultimately affected by your bile.
So how do you make sure your probiotics get where they need to go?
There are a few options to get your probiotics to your small intestine. Enteric-coated tablets were fashionable for a while. They still exist, but there are two problems with them.
- They’re expensive
- The heating process can kill the active probiotic cultures (unless they’re spectacularly heat-resistant)
Certain strains of probiotics are naturally bile- and acid-resistant. Others, not so much. They might have an issue getting through your stomach acid, so those probiotics need a little help.
That’s why we use DR Caps. DR simply means delayed-release.
Instead of making your probiotics test their mettle in your stomach, they get dropped off where they can best support your health – your intestines.* Now, they still have to survive the bile, but they’re not weakened and they’re still alive.
But your probiotics still need some additional help.
Synbiotics – What Are They and Why You Need Them
Food. Bacteria, good and bad, need food to survive. You already know that bad bacteria thrive on sugar. But your probiotics needs specialized food. This is where the term, synbiotics, comes in.
Synbiotics are supplements that contain both probiotics and prebiotics, but with one distinction. Certain probiotics prefer certain prebiotics. It’s why we were picky about the prebiotics we included in Plant-Based Probiotic.
Without prebiotics, the probiotics you carefully selected can only survive for so long. They’ll get overrun quickly and you’ll be right back where you started – not a good use of your discretionary dollars. Prebiotics feed your probiotics to give them the fuel they need to support your health – and the ability to reproduce so they can shift your gut’s balance.
However, don’t let all this make you forget that your digestive system is more than your gut.
Your Digestive Health is More than Your Microbiota
There’s been so much talk about probiotics for the past decade or so that it’s easy to forget about everything else that helps you break down food so you can utilize the nutrients it provides.
The nutrients in your food are not like building blocks stacked on top of each other than easily be pulled apart. You’ve got to chew them. You’ve got to break them down. Your stomach acid helps some more. Then bile. That’s an extremely simplified version and it’s not even all of it.
One of the more important factors you require to effectively break down food is a good supply of digestive enzymes.
We’ve included DigeSEB®, a digestive enzyme blend to help you digest your food. It includes:
- Alpha & Beta Amylase – Help break down complex carbohydrates and starches
- Protease – Helps digest proteins
- Lipase – Breaks down fat
- Lactase – Helps digest lactose and dairy products
- Cellulase – Breaks down plant fiber
With digestive enzymes and probiotics, you’re supporting the vast majority of your gut health. But we’ve included another important blend in Plant-Based Probiotic.
Superfoods are some of the most nutritionally-dense foods on the planet. They naturally contain antioxidants and sometimes, nutrients you can’t find in another other foods.
