You've probably heard by now that Probiotics are the "friendly bacteria" which can help repopulate the balance of beneficial microorganisms in your gastrointestinal tract which help you digest, absorb nutrients, bolster the immune system, and even produce neurotransmitters to help regulate your mood... but you might be put off by just taking them as a pill. These six new products from Organic Traditions® provide a respectable dose of 1 Billion units of a very hardy type of probiotic per serving in the context of powdered foods which easily reconstitute into drinks which confer other benefits, as well: whether nutritional, laxative, antioxidant, or infection-fighting. Please see the Product Notes below for more information on each type.
FOR YOUR BODY
Canadian product labels are slightly different than shown. Each of these products provides 1 Billion CFUs (Colony Forming Units) per serving of a particular type of premium probiotic strain called Bacillus coagulans (GBI-30 6086) which was selected because it has excellent safety, efficacy and survivability -- not only in terms of its stability (it is shelf-stable [it does not need to be refrigerated to survive] and it can also be added to either cold or hot drinks and recipes), but also in terms of being able to survive through the acidity of the stomach to make it to our intestines to help create a more favourable population of microflora there. They all qualify as "Synbiotics," as well, because they also provide some type of prebiotic fibers which we don't really digest too well ourselves but which serve as sources of food for the beneficial probiotics (Acacia Gum for three of them, which also supplies short chain fatty acids for the lower intestine; and cranberry seed powder plus the naturally occurring PACs or Proanthocyanidins in the cranberry type).
The Daily Probiotic Cranberry Supreme type is likely the highest quality, most concentrated organic whole food cranberry blend available made from a combination of whole cranberry fruit powder, cranberry seed powder and beneficial probiotics. This highly concentrated formula (37 lbs. of fresh cranberries go into every pound of the fruit powder (which is created through a low temperature drying process) and 335 lbs. of fresh cranberry seed for each pound of its powder). Delicately sweetened with coconut palm and monk fruit sugars, each teaspoon provides at least 139 mg of PACS (Proanthocyanidins, both soluble and insoluble) -- the antioxidants associated with urinary tract health -- and also supplies plant sterols, phospholipids, fiber and naturally occurring Omega 3, 6 & 9 fatty acids.
The Probiotic Super Greens with Turmeric blend provides a highly digestible, alkalizing, nutrient-dense greens formula made from two of the most nourishing types of algae around (Chlorella and Spirulina) plus the juices from young green grasses of five types of grains (alfalfa, barley, kamut, oat and wheat), and two types of highly beneficial green teas (Moringa and Matcha), to provide a cornucopia of antioxidants, chlorophyll, and vitamins and minerals. It's also been enhanced with a concentrated extraction of Turmeric Root (a substance which may be able to help reduce cholesterol, improve immune function, and relieve joint pain, among other things), providing the equivalent of 16 grams of Fresh Turmeric per tablespoon. Just blend this Superfood powder into some water or juice for the freshest green elixir you've ever had, or use it in dips or salad dressings, or to make pesto.
Similarly, the Smooth Movement Probiotic Fiber Blend also provides the equivalent of 23 grams of Fresh Turmeric in each serving and has some cranberry seed powder in it, as well. In addition to providing support for optimal digestive and immune health like all these other three types with both probiotics and prebiotics, and plenty of antioxidants and plant-based Omega-3s, this type features a number of fiber-rich superfoods such as chia and flax seed to provide ongoing support for those who might be prone to occasional constipation, or to help with weight management goals (by helping to control your appetite by making you feel more full).
The Probiotic Superfood Smoothie Mix also features the fiber- and Omega-3-rich chia and flax seeds (which have been treated with a natural, organic, food grade sanitizer to destroy foodborne pathogens and finely sliced and made into a uniform, shelf-stable powder using their proprietary cold milling process to minimize their oxidation and loss of nutrients), and ups that ante of heart healthy essential fatty acids by adding hemp hearts, plus coconut for more fibre and taste, non-alkalized cacao for a delicious chocolate flavour with a good concentration of antioxidants. Depending on your routine, you might find this type the easiest to use, simply by sprinkling it onto your breakfasts or desserts as a topper.
There are also two delicious coconut-based Latte blends available: one featuring Matcha (green tea) with extra Vanilla flavour, and the other featuring Turmeric (both whole dried organic turmeric plus CO2 Supercritical Turmeric Dual Extract), with a dash of saffron. To make the perfect creamy latte, simply whisk a tablespoon in six ounces of water. Or they can be made cold in a blender or a shaker cup, or added to a smoothie, or mixes with herbal tea or combined with other Organic Traditions superfood drinks.Finally, there are two new types which feature Maca, a superfood which functions as an adaptogen, which can help boost energy levels in a sustained fashion, and help balance mood, and even help increase libido. They each include two types of maca -- black, and red/purple -- which have somewhat different characteristics, in a 2 to 1 ratio best befitting each sex.
