Inside Our Bodies

April 13, 2021

Inside our bodies, there’s a family of different types of bacteria that are friendly to our health called probiotics. Recently the importance and function of these probiotics have been researched to much greater detail than ever before in history. What science is finding out at every turn is that probiotics are more and more critical to various parts of our health than ever previously imagined.

While the numbers vary, the scientific community widely agrees that within our bodies, there are more cells of these friendly bacteria than there are cells of us as a human being, meaning you’re less “human” than you are “friendly bacteria.” As an ecosystem, our bodies merely exist to serve the colony of our bacteria. So, as you can imagine, the impact that friendly bacteria have on our health, reactively and proactively, is enormous. To a degree, our friendly gut bacteria quite literally dictate many of our health outcomes and play functions in nearly every real condition that’s important to us in our body.

How to Choose the Best Probiotic Supplement for Your Health

Next, here’s a controversial topic. Probiotic marketers are pushing probiotic supplement’s amount per serving up and up. Go into the grocery store and look at the probiotics listed in the refrigerated section — you’ll find products with 20-80 billion units of probiotics. Marketers will use “serving numbers” as an arms race while trying to promote that their product is the best because they’ve got “the highest amount of probiotics” in it. The truth is, fragile probiotics that need refrigeration to stay healthy are unprotected and thus cannot survive during the body’s acidic digestion process.

No one stops to think, “if they’re fragile enough to require refrigeration, ‘preventing’ them from being damaged by room temperature, what happens when I put them in my body? What happens when they hit 100 degrees before they implant?” Frankly, what happens is they’re destroyed. So, you’re spending lots of money on 80+ billion units probiotic formulation, and your stomach acid destroys the probiotics before any of them can implant inside of your gut. Your net benefit from that is if nothing, next to nothing!

The entire reason why we enterically coat and nano-encapsulate all of our probiotics cultures is so they’re shelf-stable and can survive at 80 degrees on a product shelf. Another big reason why is so they’re protected and buffered from all of your stomach acids during digestion. Many probiotics are killed by your body before they get to where they need to be, but the Salus Probiotic Beauty opens up after the juncture of the common bile duct, meaning they implant precisely where we need them to go — in the gut. I don’t understand why no one else is doing this! It’s the only way that makes sense to supplement probiotics, and so many companies are selling a ton of crappy probiotic supplements that just don’t do this.

The Best Probiotic Strains and Why They’re Important for Your Health

Another thing probiotic marketers are doing to try and gain a marketing advantage is stating that there are “35 different strains of probiotics” in their product. People who don’t know the science, assume more strains listed on the bottle are better. However, while the diversity of your friendly bacteria across a number of strains is essential, it’s challenging to create diversity by supplementing with a whole bunch of different types.

The vast majority of your friendly bacteria culture is made up of three basic foundation strains. These three primary foundation strains create a positive environment to allow diversification to happen. Because of that, Salus Probiotic Beauty focuses on the three strains that important, which are Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Bifidobacterium Bifidus, and Bifidobacterium Longum. That’s the vast majority and bulk of what your existing strains are. By supplementing with these three strains — diversification happens at a higher rate than if you’re supplementing with small amounts of dozens of different strengths.

Final thoughts…

Having probiotics scientifically formulated with a technological delivery system and the proper strains is the only place to focus on for health results. All the other stuff is marketing fluff. The 80 billion units are marketing fluff. The hundred different types are marketing fluff, and that’s where people are getting misled. They’re spending a lot of money, time, and health in solutions that are never going to get them to where they need to be.
