There is some debate among scientists how just how helpful probiotics are to our overall health. Some say certain strains of bacteria are better than others and that you should always know what type of bacteria you are ingesting. Don't just see the would probiotic or Lactobacillus on the label and think you are getting the claimed benefits. Know the specific strain and research any benefits specifically related to it.
For the past few weeks I've been taking PRO-15 Advanced Strength Probiotic. It says it's 15 times more effective than capsules. I am partial to capsules because they can be broken apart making them easier to swallow but overall effectiveness is up on my radar too.
Hyperbiotics PRO-15 Advanced Strength Probiotic contains 15 different bacteria strains. Yes, 15! A lot I know. There's L. Acidophilus, L. Plantarum, L. Fermentum, B. Infantis, L. Casei, B. Longum, L. Rhamnosus, B. Lactis, L. Reuteri, L. Salivarius, L. Paracasei, L. Gasseri, B. Bifidum, B. Breve, and S. Thermophilus as well as kiwi extract. The kiwi extract acts as a prebiotic and aids in digestion.
I've been taking 3 tablets a day with no adverse side effects. They do have a slight taste when swallowing but nothing that doesn't go away quickly. I love that they are time release since I often am not able to take them at the same time each day. They can be taken with or without food too!
The makers of Hyperbiotics PRO-15 Advanced Strength Probiotic say:
With superior patented technology, our living organisms in this advanced formula are released over an 8-10 hour period so they bypass your stomach acids and reach deep into your intestinal tract alive – where they are needed most. Our formula will even reach your large intestine.
Studies show that without protection most probiotics entering the stomach won't survive to reach optimal sites within the gastrointestinal tract. Most powders, liquids, capsules and even cultured dairy products retain only 4% of these sensitive organisms during passage through the stomach's harsh environment. The good news: with the patented BIO-tract protection and time-release technology, we have increased this number to a remarkable 60%.
When the pearl capsule is moistened by fluids in the stomach, the patented gel matrix creates a protective layer, shielding beneficial organisms from stomach acids and directing them to release later in their journey. Once inside the gastrointestinal tract, probiotics begin to release at consistent levels from the pearl core, delivering a potent percentage of our living organisms throughout the day and throughout your gut, traveling deep into your intestinal tract where they are needed most. This is the only controlled-release technology available for probiotics on the market today and is patented in 31 countries.
I had always wondered with other probiotics how the bacteria just doesn't die in our stomach acid. It's supposed to break down things, right!? I have a much clearer idea now. I totally wish I could see it in live action. It would be a neat biology video!
