Not all probiotics are created equal; so how do you know which is the best probiotic to take? Well, we’ve made it easy for you. Nexba’s probiotic is a triple threat – smart, robust, and when drinkable in our Kombucha and Kefir ranges, dead-set delicious.
But we’re getting ahead of ourselves.
Before we tell you too much about what makes Nexba’s probiotics so special, let’s start with the basics on gut health.
HAPPY GUT, HAPPY LIFE
Your stomach, colon and intestines are home to more than 100 trillion tiny living bacteria. This bacteria helps you digest food efficiently, extracting all the good stuff so it can be absorbed into your system.
Healthy gut bacteria synthesise vitamins, convert fibre into short-chain fatty acids, and support your immune system. They also help destroy harmful bacteria and other nasty microorganisms.
A gut that has too few good bacteria, and too much harmful bacteria, is not a happy gut.
An imbalance in gut bacteria, or a lack of diversity in the type of bacteria in the gut, can lead to weight gain, insulin resistance, inflammation in your body’s systems, bowel disease and even colorectal cancer. Yikes!
THAT’S WHERE PROBIOTICS COME IN
Probiotics are live microorganisms that are naturally present in some fermented foods like sauerkraut, kimchi, yoghurt, and (you guessed it!) Kombucha and Kefir. They can also be taken as supplements.
Probiotics help boost the number of healthy bacteria living in your gut which can lead to a healthier digestive and immune system.
ARE ALL PROBIOTICS THE SAME?
That would be making things easy! Just like there are hundreds of types of bacteria living in your gut all doing their own thing, there are also loads of different types of probiotics. And each type, or strain, has its own unique qualities and benefits. But they are certainly NOT all created equal.
SO, WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT NEXBA’S PROBIOTIC?
For you to really get the health benefits from any probiotic you take, it needs to make it all the way to your intestines and colon alive. The problem with most probiotics is they can be a little, well, delicate. Your stomach acid can go to town on them and not much ends up making it to your actual gut.
But! Nexba’s probiotic isn’t like most probiotics.
We use our superstar strain of smart and robust probiotics, Bacillus Coagulans, that are encased in a hard protein-like shell. This shell means the live microorganisms inside can survive the harsh PH levels and gastric juices in your stomach. So, they make it to your intestines and colon intact.
In fact, the probiotics in our Kombuchas and Kefirs are so robust you don’t even have to keep them in the fridge! Bonus!
