HOW DOES GOODGUTS PROBIOTIC SURVIVE HEAT, BOILING WATER & STOMACH ACIDS?

Although adding probiotics to a hot beverage may seem counterintuitive, Goodguts Probiotic is heat stable and will survive boiling water & stomach acid, to become active in your gut.

Our probiotic is a stable strain of lactic acid producing, spore forming probiotic that allows you to boil and freeze it.  It’s true – heat does not destroy Goodguts Probiotic, not even when you add boiling water. 

We got our tea tested in an US Probiotic Lab – to ensure you get 1 billion cfu – AFTER adding

boiling water, so you can be confident in your one cup per day.

What Sort of Bacteria is Goodguts?

Goodguts probiotic is Bacillus coagulans  – a lactic acid producing bacteria that is a spore forming, motile, catalase positive and a facultative anaerobe bacteria.  So it is really resilient.

Leading the pack of resilient probiotics in Australia, is Goodguts Probiotic.  The composition of Goodguts probiotic differentiates itself from other probiotics by its ability to survive manufacturing processes, shelf life, stomach acids and intestinal bile.  

This allows our probiotic to be manufactured and enjoyed as a cup of tea. 

I’ve heard that Bacillus coagulans isn’t heat resistant?

Bacillus coagulans is found in two forms:

    • the vegetative form which is a regular bacterial cell similar in structure to other probiotic bacteria (that we are more familiar with), and 

    • the spore form (the resilient Goodguts variety), is a naturally occurring dormant shell which can withstand many conditions such as heat, pressure, and extreme acid or alkaline conditions, any of which may kill vegetative bacterial cells.  

The Goodguts spore bacteria only becomes active in your gut.

One study you might find interesting is:         Bacillus Coagulans As A Probiotic

Food Science & Technology Bulletin: Functional Foods 2010, 7(7): 103-109

D. Keller, S. Farmer, A.L. McCartney, G.Gibson

This study discusses evidence for Bacillus coagulans effectiveness as a therapeutic probiotic and its heat stability overcoming the limitations of other probiotics.

How Does Goodguts Probiotic Work?

Another good question – Goodguts probiotic produces lactic acid once it arrives in the small intestine – this is the same positive action that yogurt and kefir bacteria provides except:

  Goodguts probiotic is 10x more effective than dairy bacteria – as it survives the transit to your gut – backed by research.  

Goodguts brings balance back to your microbiome, by producing lactic acid supporting good bacteria in the gut while displacing “bad” or harmful bacteria.  

It is important that research claims are related directly to the particular bacteria strain and not simply the genus and or species.   Goodguts has been clinically studied and supported by over 25 peer reviewed, published papers on its safety, efficacy and stability.  Goodguts probiotic is the only bacillus that has been endorsed by Dr. Mehmet Oz, Dr. Michael Roizen, and Dr. Andrew Weil.

The following research highlights are probiotic strain-specific and relate to the patented smart Bacillus coagulans that is in goodguts Probiotic Tea. 

Digestive Benefits

Remarkably there are ten times as many microbial cells in your intestine as there are cells in your entire body, and those microbes play a role in a countless number of biological and chemical functions. 

Balance among the hundreds of species of bacteria in the gut is crucial to helping control pathogenic microbes that would cause a disease or hold potential pathogens under control. Dysbiosis occurs when the balance is disturbed and the concentrations of some commensal bacteria increase while others decrease.

Of course, for a probiotic to be effective, it must survive the transit through the stomach and reach the intestines alive, where it confers a benefit. Using a validated gut model, it was demonstrated that Goodguts Probiotic survives to populate and germinate in the intestines (Honda 2011a). 

When consumed daily, Goodguts Probiotic has been shown in multiple studies to have a supportive effect on the digestive system. 

Goodguts Probiotic has been shown to decrease abdominal pain and bloating (Hun 2009), reduce the number of daily bowel movements (Dolin 2009) as well as decrease postprandial gas and bloating (Kalman 2009).

Immune Benefits

Research on Goodguts Probiotic has shown that it supports immune system health in a variety of ways. 

One study found that it positively affected the actions of immune cells while also producing a cascade of cytokines, which are chemical messengers that coordinate the immune response, when after subjects had taken a daily dose of Goodguts Probiotic for 30 consecutive days.

In additional studies Goodguts Probiotic has been shown to have an immunomodulation effect on immune tissues (Jensen et al., 2010. Benson et al., 2012. Nyangale et al., 2014a). 

Besides a direct effect on the immune components of the intestine it has been recently demonstrated that this probiotic encourages the growth and maintenance of normal commensal bacteria known to be anti-inflammatory and whose presence is often drastically decreased in Crohn’s disease and other forms of IBD (Nyangale et al., 2014 . Sokol et al., 2008).

In Good Gut Health,

 

IS YOUR GUT OUT OF WHACK?

Is your gut out of whack? Do you want a tummy tamer? Need to beat belly bloat or pain?

Perhaps you are looking for an immunity boost before flu season hits? Did you know that gut health is linked to many common ailments?

The next generation of probiotics for gut health has arrived in Australia- goodguts Probiotic Tea.
A functional beverage made in Australia – a real cup of tea with a real probiotic.

Yes, you read that correctly, tea with probiotics! The very first probiotic tea in Australia. This article is part 1 introducing goodguts probiotic tea. Part 2 discusses the probiotic in detail.

A busy lifestyle, illness, travel and stress can decrease good bacteria and invite unfriendly bacteria and yeasts in to our bodies, disrupting our gut microbe balance, leaving you vulnerable to irritable digestion, heartburn, constipation, diarrhoea, food allergies, headaches, frequent colds, skin problems and belly bloat. With every day we hear more about how our gut health is linked to another health condition.

And its because our digestive system is amazing.

It keeps us healthy with over 70% of our immunity residing in our gut. Our humble and often overlooked gut extracts energy from our food, produces vitamins and more than two dozen hormones that manage multiple systems within our body. It does this from everything morsel and liquid we put into our mouths.

What is even more amazing, our gut is our second brain. Our gut affects everything from cognitive function to our mood, it signals for the release of serotonin more than your brain does.

Gut health is quickly becoming a health priority for many Australians. Recent media and tv documentaries have highlighted how increasing evidence now exists showing how we feed our gut microbes is key to our health and weight. Balance among the hundreds of microbe species of bacteria in the gut is key to helping control the bad bugs that would cause a gut disruption or sometimes even illness. If this sounds interesting (I think it does) we will explore gut health in future goodguts articles.

But diet isn’t the only factor that positively affects our gut micro-diversity. There is now an increased focus on probiotics being a part of the solution but, some popular probiotic offerings are incompatible with many Australian diets, allergies and health requirements. Some of us require a novel solution that is easy to integrate into our daily routine and might even be enjoyable.

Say hello to the next generation of probiotics – goodguts Probiotic Tea that meets the demands of a busy lifestyle with a powerful probiotic to support digestive and immune health, and enhanced protein absorption.

Although adding probiotics to a hot beverage may seem counterintuitive, goodguts probiotic – is heat stable and will survive boiling water & stomach acid to become active in your gut. You drink it like your normal cup of tea – even with milk, honey or sugar.

goodguts Probiotic Tea offers an EASY solution that addresses the need for an allergy-free, dairy-free, taste-free and convenient probiotic. It’s an easy wellbeing solution that endures during periods of stress, travel, and a hectic time poor lifestyle – because life happens and nothing is better than a cup of tea.
