Gut health is foundational to your wellbeing. Every aspect of our well-being hinges on our gut microbiome’s function and health. When working correctly, our gut digests our food and absorbs nutrients so we can have energy and vitality. It eliminates toxins and fights pathogens. It’s also the home of trillions of microorganisms that aid in these processes and do so much more, like manage inflammation.
However, common factors like stress and poor diet can contribute to an imbalance of our gut’s microbial community. When your body doesn't have enough good bacteria, bad bacteria can thrive. And that's where probiotics step in.
How Do Probiotics Support Gut Health?
Generally speaking, probiotics help balance the bacteria that make up your microbiome to optimize your gut health. When working correctly, our gut digests our food and absorbs nutrients so we can have energy and vitality. It eliminates toxins and fights pathogens. It’s also the home of trillions of microorganisms that aid in these processes and do so much more, like manage inflammation. That's why when it comes to the role of the gut, we shouldn’t be surprised that it has such a wide-reaching influence on everything else
Probiotics aim to consistently and gradually introduce essential good bacteria to your gut, making for a ratio that your body loves. This process regulates and improves the character and the functioning of your microbiome, giving your body the tools to operate at peak performance.
The Problem with Modern Probiotics (and the Flora Code Solution)
However, current formulas typically do not achieve their potential inside the gut. As background, most probiotics (the seemingly endless array of different pills, powders, gummies, and other supplements) leverage a type of bacteria called Bacillus. Bacillus bacteria have become very popular because they exist in a totally natural dormant state known as an endospore, or spore, that helps them survive the stomach’s harsh pH and make it to the GI tract. However, in this state of dormancy, they are so stable that almost none of them are able to wake up. Instead, they pass through the gut in a dormant state, unable to deliver benefits once they reach the gut.
Some probiotics try to circumvent this issue by having many strains that are non-spore forming. However, this also means that they are not protected against the stomach. Therefore, they need a higher count and more of them to try to survive. Typically, however, less than 0.1% of the bacteria survive, which makes it difficult to get consistent or even noticeable results.
Flora Code is so unique because we’ve harnessed proven activation technology to promise two essential processes that have been missing so far:
Our Bacillus bacterial spores are fermented properly to be protected against your harsh stomach acids, guaranteeing their survival.
Once they've made it to safety, our activation technology jumpstarts these live, flourishing bacteria in the gut. And that's why 95% of our spores are proven to be active, exactly where you need them most.
With Flora Code’s activated probiotic powders, you can finally revel in the benefits that nurturing your gut brings. No matter which you prefer, our formulas support the growth of beneficial gut bacteria to: promote regularity, strengthen your body’s natural defenses, enhance digestive function, and support the relief of occasional digestive discomforts such as mild and occasional bloating, gas, and diarrhea. The science may be complex, but consider enjoying it simple.
