Probiotics are “good” bacteria that support a healthy digestive system and your overall wellbeing. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines probiotics as “live microorganisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host.” This means that a true probiotic should provide live, viable cells that arrive alive in the gut to do their work.
The gut is home to trillions of bacteria. When an imbalance of bacteria occurs, whether it’s due to antibiotics, pollutants, poor diet, or other causes, digestive issues and other health problems may arise. Probiotics provide friendly bacteria that help to balance good bacteria in the gut to support digestive and immune system health.
Probiotic translates from Latin and Greek to “for life.” By taking care of your gut, you’re promoting good health from the inside out.
With a high quality probiotic, you can help to support less digestive issues, such as bloating, constipation or gas, which can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. With more than 70% of the immune system located in the gut, immune health is another great benefit of certain probiotic supplements. Many people say they feel more energized and happier when gut health is addressed.
In our modern daily lives, we are bombarded with bad bacteria from various sources. Preservatives, chemicals in our drinking water, antibiotics, processed foods, sugar, and chemicals in personal care items can all contribute to throwing off the balance in your gut flora that keeps you at your best health.
As we learn more about the critical role of the digestive system, the known benefits of probiotics to our overall health continue to increase. In fact, the digestive system plays a role in nearly every aspect of human health.
The digestive system is critically important to nutrient absorption and the creation of hormones, enzymes, and neurochemicals, and more.
More than 70% of your immune system and the second largest neurologic system (after the brain) are located in the gut. Even issues that you may not link with digestive health are thought by researchers to be mediated by the composition of bacteria in the gut.
Many people think that spores are only associated with bad organisms because they've heard about the dangers of mold spores. However, good organisms can also convert to a "spore" and they do this so that they can protect themselves from harsh environments. Just like a turtle has a hard outer shell to protect it from predators, bacillus probiotic species like Smart Spores™ have the ability to form an endospore (spore), which is a strong, almost impenetrable shield that protects the bacterium from heat, acid, pressure, and many other potential hazards. This allows these important probiotics to be able to survive manufacturing, processing, packaging, storage and the harsh stomach acid. This is a large part of what makes PROBIOGEN® far superior to conventional probiotic strains. Survival and viability is a very important feature of being a probiotic.
In this way, having a spore strain probiotic fighting to improve your gut microbiome is like sending in a police officer with armor into your gut to fight for you and protect your flora.
PROBIOGEN™ provides true, living spore probiotics where you need them most for a difference you can feel. Probiotics® begin to do their work once they’ve arrived in the gut. Our Smart Spore™ strains have a clinically proven 99% survival rate in the gut, which is 100x better than leading brands and yogurt, who use inferior strains that just don’t make it past the harsh stomach acid.
We DNA verify every strain in every batch, ensuring what we claim on our label is actually in our product. Scarily enough, that’s not required in the industry and almost no one is doing this testing! Studies show that the vast majority of products tested do not meet the label claim, meaning that what the companies claim on the label as the strains in the product are not actually the strains found in the capsules.
PROBIOGEN® is also unique in offering tailored probiotics for specific health needs. We have formulas for men and women, as well as support for healthy mood, immunity, and a healthy weight. What’s unique is that true probiotics actually enhance the absorption of these key nutrients, making them much more effective (and convenient).
Probiogen® probiotics are formulated to make a difference in your digestive health and support healthy immunity. Support for regularity, lessened digestive issues and immune system are just some of the benefits you can expect.
Probiogen® products go beyond digestive health. Please visit our Products page to explore the unique benefits of each of our daily and targeted Probiotic solutions.
According to the World Health Organization, probiotics are “live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host.”
We guarantee potency at the time the consumer takes the product, not at manufacturing. Because many probiotics die during processing and storage, you’ll see on their labels they provide live bacteria “at the time of manufacturing” only.
A recent study tested 35 of the most popular probiotic strains in the market and found that the vast majority of them did not survive gastric passage. If it doesn’t make it to the gut alive, it is not a true probiotic, and you’re essentially paying for dead bacteria.
Our Bacillus spore probiotic strains have a 99.99% survival rate in the gastric system and are clinically proven to survive 100x better than leading probiotic brands and yogurt.
Smart Spore Technology™ refers to the use of highly standardized, DNA verified Bacillus spore strains used in each Probiogen™ product.
Spore-formers are unique in that they fit the criteria for what makes a probiotic truly beneficial for human health:
Our products contain well-defined strains that have undergone DNA sequence analysis and verification from a 3rd party lab.
Many probiotic products, especially the multi-strain products with 10+ strains, are not well characterized. If a product is not well defined with strains that have undergone DNA sequence analysis, you can’t be sure you know what you’re taking. Studies show that incorrect labeling and even pill-to-pill variation is a problem with probiotics on the shelf today.
Users have reported results in as little as 2-3 days, when used as directed. Individual results will vary.
Take PROBIOGEN® within 10 – 20 minutes after a meal at whatever meal is most convenient for you. The amino acids and carbohydrates in food help to activate the Smart Spores™ in the gut.
We always recommend eating unprocessed, clean, organic foods. There is nothing specific to avoid, but high-fiber foods that are organic and free of additives will also help promote digestive health.
There are no known side effects to taking PROBIOGEN®. Some people may experience mild digestive discomfort at first. If you are sensitive to digestive discomfort, we recommend starting with a 1/2 capsule, until your body has adjusted, and then moving to full dosage. We highly recommend that those with major digestive issues or those who are pregnant or lactating consult with a health care professional before taking PROBIOGEN®.
There are no known drug interactions with probiotic formulas. PROBIOGEN® can be used with antibiotics as needed.
PROBIOGEN® is vegetarian and contains no dairy.
No, we do not test any of our products on animals.
