What are probiotics? Our lower digestive tract is loaded with a complex and diverse community of living micro organisms. (bacteria, fungi, viruses, yeasts) Not all of these microbes are good for you.
Probiotics are the good live microbes that promote health. Having an overgrowth of the “bad micro- organisms” can cause imbalance in our body. This imbalance can lead to weight gain, constipation, diarrhea, skin conditions and various chronic health problems.
A probiotic dietary supplement can enhance your health in many ways. However, although people take probiotics these days, they vary in terms of potency & effectiveness. It’s imperative that the microbes in the probiotic capsules survive the long trip down into your intestines for them to be effective.
They must be able to withstand the stomach acid which has a ph of 1- 3, that would otherwise disintegrate & destroy the probiotic bacteria that are in the capsule.
To get around this, Plexus places these microbes in a capsule that allows them to not only to withstand the acidic ph of the stomach, but it also has a delayed release about 45 minutes after it is taken, than the standard capsules of 30 minutes. This allows them to get to their destination – the gut!
There are three Lactobacillus species, three Bifidobacteria species, Saccharomyces boulardii, and Bacillus coagulans, a total of 8 different probiotic stains in Plexus VitalBiome. Each capsule has 20 billion live cells in it.
They are all specifically chosen to re-colonize your intestines, improve gut health, help digest food, absorb nutrients, build immunity, make vitamins and much more.
These capsules are placed into a special formulated container called the plexi pack which allows an environment inside to keep the microbes good for the entire life of the probiotics. Because there’s no need for refrigeration we have the added benefit of travelling with it easily.
Lastly to bring this all together I’d like to bring your attention to the post I wrote about the pre-biotic called Xylooligosaccaride (XOS) one of the ingredients found in Slim.
- XOX selectively feeds & activates the Lactobacilli in the gut by 365 times, a 36,000% increase!
- XOS activates the Bifidobacterium by 290 times ( which is important for your immune system)
- XOS activates Akkermansia, (another good gut microbe that impacts your disruptive metabolism associated with weight & the function of the immune system) by 250 times.
I hope that the pieces of the puzzle are all fitting together to help you see how every part of the weed, seed & feed protocol is necessary to establish a healthy gut. (The last piece is yet to come)
Plexus VitalBiome is non GMO, vegetarian & gluten free.
