Many of us have heard of a probiotic, and you might even know they’re live microorganisms that help improve or restore the gut’s flora. But what might be confusing you, are the various and unpronounceable strains that are found in probiotics. At Gryph & IvyRose we have included four probiotic strains in our probiotics for kids and adults. Learn about the strains and help make your family’s probiotic decision easier.
1) B. Bifidum
According to our herbal expert & co-founder, Orion Nevel, B.Bifidum is great at helping you digest fiber and prevent infections. Different strains of these bacteria have been reported to have the ability to beneficially influence the immune system. It has also shown promise in supporting relief in irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, and certain kinds of diarrhea in kids and adults.
2) Bifidobacterium Lactis
Is found in fermented milk products like yogurt, kefir and cultured buttermilk which contain digestion & immune supporting bacteria. It's also known to be helpful in knocking out food-born pathogens like salmonella, which can cause diarrhea.
3) Bifidobacterium Longum
Is a multifunctional probiotic that is effective in alleviating gastrointestinal, immunological and infectious diseases. Orion Nevel adds that this probiotic strain “has anti-inflammatory properties that protect the cells lining your mucous membranes from toxins and help some of your immune cells to mature so they can function properly.”
4) Lactobacillus Acidophilus
Can boost the immune system and thus help reduce the risk of viral infections. Some studies have suggested that probiotics may prevent and improve symptoms of the common cold as well as combat yeast overgrowth.
According to Orion Nevel, these strains were chosen for their broad-spectrum appeal and overall utility. They are durable due to our specific freeze dried processing. Some added benefits of our USDA Organic Probiotic line are:
- Shelf-stable means that our probiotic tablets, powder, and chocolates don’t need to be refrigerated to preserve the efficacy of the strains. Less energy is used in the transportation & storage of these since they don’t need to be chilled like many probiotic products.
- Fair-trade cacao is included in our probiotics for children and adults. This means the cacao was traded in a more ethical way, supporting better working conditions, and improving livelihoods.
- Combining our probiotics with heirloom banana, vanilla, or raw-cacao & coconut palm sugar ensures that your family will love them. Read some of the rave reviews about our probiotics for your family on Amazon here.
As with all supplements, it is a good idea to check with your physician or pediatrician first.
