80% of the bodies immune system is in the gut

"You are what you eat" - Your gut lining chooses what to absorb and what not to.

 

What you absorb dictates who you are, how you feel, your energy levels, health and happiness.

gut health basics

Trillions of microscopic bacteria live in and on our bodies. Some are good for our health and some are not so good. The good are called probiotics. The not so good are called pathogens.

For probiotics to exert health benefits on the body they need fuel. This fuel is called prebiotics. If probiotics come into contact with prebiotics under the right conditions, postbiotics are created.

Postbiotics are the end-product, they are compounds that benefit the gut lining and subsequently improve our general health, from improving digestion and reducing bloating to supporting mental health and increasing immunity.

Unfortunately, massive amounts of probiotics and prebiotics supplements are wasted by the body. Postbiotic supplements deliver the beneficial compounds needed direct to the gut, putting you on the fast-track to gut happy.

how are postbiotics created?

In our lab we re-create the conditions within a healthy gut and then add in high quality prebiotics along with 4 comprehensively researched probiotic strains.

The probiotics digest the prebiotics and create postbiotics. These postbiotics are then extracted, tested and then packaged sustainably.

Postbiotics ensure your gut gets the nutrients it needs directly. We do the hard work so that your gut doesn't have to.

the prebiotic booster

The root formula has been designed to provide the essential nutrients, enzymes, amino acids and short chain fatty acids that the gut needs to keep us gut happy.

The formula also includes an added prebiotic blend, designed to encourage any probiotics (beneficial live bacteria) already in the gut to thrive.

our fermented postbiotic strains

1 / Lactobacillus Plantarum

L. Plantarum belongs to the Lactobacillus family of bacteria. Lactic acid bacteria convert sugars into lactic acid and hydrogen peroxide, substances that inhibit the growth of undesirable bacteria in the intestines. L. plantarum specifically has been shown to help induce an immune response that may protect the body from pathogenic bacteria or infectious diseases. It has also been observed to provide benefits for IBS patients, mainly due to normalisation of stool and can relieve abdominal pain. In addition, L. Plantarum has been observed to sharpen memory, enhance athletic performance, and promote weight loss.

2 / Lactobacillus Salivarius

L. Salivarius specifically has been used to prevent and treat a variety of chronic diseases, including asthma, dermatitis and halitosis. To a lesser extent it has also been seen to prevent or treat infections. L. salivarius can also help improve bacterial populations in the mouth, reducing the development of gum plaque. It’s also shown to increase resistance to the risk factors for dental cavaties. This improves bad breath and reduces the risk of periodontitis causing gums to bleed. Even smokers have been shown to benefit from salivarius.

3 / Lactobacillus Acidophilus

L. Acidophilus has antimicrobial and antiviral properties and may help to prevent colds, viruses, and even allergies. Acidophilus balances potentially harmful bacteria that can otherwise flourish in the gut due to illness or antibiotics. Studies have also shown it may also help reduce vaginal inflammation and balance the flora in the vagina, helping to prevent yeast infections. In addition, L. Acidophilus has been observed to help reduce cholesterol, prevent and treat depression and help to prevent C. difficile-associated diarrhoea, a type of severe diarrhoea that often affects older adults.

4 / Bifidobacterium Longum subsp. Infantis

B. Longum infantis belongs to the Bifidobacterium family of bacteria and has been demonstrated to predominate in the gut microbiota of breastfed infants and to benefit the host by accelerating maturation of the immune response, balancing the immune system to suppress inflammation, improving intestinal barrier function, and increasing acetate production. Bifidobacterium Longum infantis can help to relieve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, such as abdominal pain, gas and bloating. It may also help to reduce levels of inflammation in patients with ulcerative colitis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and psoriasis.
