Probiotic Colon contains ten strains of live probiotics cultured together on a non-dairy food medium containing growth-stimulating prebiotic whole foods: Organic Okra, Organic Spinach, Organic Chlorella, Organic Blueberry, Organic Cumin, and Organic Ginger.
The live probiotics in Probiotic Colon, including revered probiotic strains such as Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei, and Bifidobacterium longum, help support optimal digestive and immune system function.
When culturing is complete, the synbiotic-rich food medium and live probiotics are freeze-dried together, a process that preserves their potency until consumed. Once consumed, the cultured prebiotic food medium activates the probiotics and enhances their effects. Both are part of the synergistic whole that benefits the entire digestive tract and promotes healthy bowel function.
The Medium is the Message! Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that occur naturally in the human intestinal tract. Foods “cultured” with beneficial strains of probiotics such as yogurt and kefir have been used throughout history to improve overall health and vitality, and today, there are many studies reinforcing their ability to balance and promote digestive health.* Probiotics also play an important role in modulating the immune system, 70% of which is located in the gut.*
To make a probiotic supplement, selected strains of beneficial bacteria must first be cultured on a food medium, such as milk or soy. Since each strain of probiotics has an affinity for a different part of the digestive tract, and a unique mechanism of action, a product that delivers multiple strains is preferable to single strain products. As the probiotics replicate, they biotransform the food medium, breaking down nutrients and making them more bioavailable while secreting beneficial compounds into the medium called “synbiotics.” Research suggests that synbiotics are largely responsible for the benefits of probiotics. In other words, “the medium is the message.”
Most probiotic supplement manufacturers separate the probiotics from their food medium once the desired number of cultures is achieved, and therefore fail to deliver the full range of health benefits associated with eating probiotic foods. New Chapter ’s Probiotics with a Purpose™ line, however, uniquely offers multi-species blends of live probiotics with the synbiotic-rich organic growth medium intact.
