goodguts PROBIOTIC

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 smart probiotic.

Yes, you read that correctly, tea with probiotics! The very first probiotic tea in Australia.

  • Live active probiotic
  • Survives boiling & stomach acids
  • Makes it to your gut alive
  • Dairy-free & Vegan
  • No known allergens
  • No GMO
  • No sugar

If you are someone who follows a plant-based diet, or is dairy free, or have allergies, you will know there are not many probiotic products/foods unless you take supplements. goodguts Probiotic Tea is an exciting new gut health product for you.

goodguts probiotic is a good bacteria that supports digestive and immune health, and enhanced protein absorption in a delicious cup of tea. The best news – you can’t taste the probiotic, our tea is delicious with no aftertaste.

You drink it like your normal cup of tea – with sweeteners or your milk of choice.

Although adding probiotics to a hot beverage may seem counterintuitive, as goodguts probiotic is heat stable it will survive to become active in your gut.

It’s guaranteed to make it to your gut alive where it can start to support your gut’s health. This is unlike probiotics used in dairy products or yogurt drinks or kombucha, as all our good bacteria reach the gut alive – backed by research as ten times more effective than dairy.

How does goodguts probiotic work?

Incredibly there are ten times more microbe cells in your gut as there are cells in your entire body!  These microbes or microbiome are a mix of microbes common to most people and others unique to you based on your diet, environment and even your age and good health – the greater the diversity of good species the better your health.

Your microbiome plays a role in a number of functions, including creating hormones, nutrients (vit B and K), amino acids, breaking down our food, creating dopamine and serotonin and providing immunity – 70% of immunity cells are in our gut wall.

Our probiotic, Bacillus coagulans, is a lactic acid-producing bacteria that is normally dormant, surrounded by a naturally occurring shell which protects it from boiling water and stomach acid.  It has been described as behaving like a seed and can stay dormant until the environment is right.

The magic happens when it gets to your small intestines where the probiotic “wakes up” and goes into action.

goodguts probiotic brings balance back to your gut microbiome by producing lactic acid which supports good bacteria in the gut while displacing “bad” or harmful bacteria that cause inflammation, digestive upsets, irregular bowels, bloating, wind and many other conditions.

Good health begins in the gut – get goodguts:

  • Backed by research
  • Available in both teabag & looseleaf
  • Certified organic teas
  • One cup per day, everyday

When consumed daily, research shows goodguts probiotic tea may get the good gut bacteria back in balance and supports good digestive and immunity health, enhanced protein absorption, and better recovery from intense exercise.  There’s more info on the science of goodguts probiotic on ‘The Science’ part of our website.

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 gut support 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.

Start having goodguts probiotic tea today – your guts will thank you.

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 have our tea tested in a US Probiotic Laboratory – 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 probiotic?

 goodguts probiotic is Bacillus coagulans  – a lactic acid producing bacteria that is a spore forming, motile, catalase positive and 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, extended 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), which has a naturally occurring dormant shell that 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 provide 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.   The probiotic used in 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 intestines as there are cells in your entire body, and these 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).
