Vegan Allergen-Free Probiotics
What are probiotics?
Probiotics are “good”, “friendly” or “healthy” bacteria that when ingested may help support digestive and immune support.
Probiotics can be found where?
Probiotics can be found in various forms, however most people associate them with yogurt and dietary supplements. But as consumers become more aware of the benefits of probiotics, they find that probiotics can be found in a growing variety of fortified probiotic beverages and probiotic folds such as Sprouted Minds refrigerated protein bars.
What’s going on in there?
From the day you were born, your digestive tract has been exposed to a steady stream of bacteria – some helpful, some harmful. One key to intestinal health is maintaining a balance of these helpful and harmful bacteria. Over time, many factors including diet, aging, antibiotic use, travel, medications, illness, stress, and hormonal changes, can disrupt intestinal balance.
To help level the playing field of good and bad bacteria, you should add a daily supplement or probiotic fortified foods and beverages to your diet. Sprouted Minds is one of the few nutrition bar companies on the market to utilize probiotics in our superfood bars.
How do I choose a probiotic?
Not all probiotics strains are the same. Different strains offer different benefits and some probiotic strains survive manufacturing processes, shelf life and digestive transit better than others. Sprouted Minds is committed to delivering the highest quality ingredients and why we are proud to offer you the world leading probiotic:
GanedenBC30 is a natural probiotic (“beneficial bacteria”) ingredient added to many foods, beverages and supplements to help support digestive and immune health, increasing Plant-Based protein utilization and aiding in the absorption of nutrients, vitamins and minerals.
GanedenBC30 is an EXTREMELY stable probiotic due to the cell’s ability to form a protective spore. Just like plant seeds wait to grow until spring when the temperature and moisture levels are optimal, GanedenBC30 spores wait to germinate and grow until they reach the intestines where the conditions are just right. This protective shell also gives GanedenBC30 the ability to survive harsh manufacturing processes, product shelf life and finally, the journey through the digestive system – most other probiotics just can’t survive these stresses.
The more we learn about our intricate digestive system, the more we discover how closely tied it is to our overall health. An astounding 70 percent of your immune system is located in your digestive tract; it’s no surprise that research demonstrates that probiotics may boost our immunity. Clearly, probiotics help keep us healthy by more than just aiding digestion.
Ganeden takes science seriously
Ganeden has completed over 25 peer reviewed studies demonstrating the safety, efficacy and benefits of GanedenBC30 (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086).
