Probiotics are beneficial microorganisms that offer numerous digestive health benefits to their host and are found in fermented foods such as yogurt and kefir or consumed as a dietary supplement. Many of these supplements contain dairy-based microorganisms.
Is there an advantage to soil-based bacteria? Consider this: In the produce area of a typical supermarket we see row after row of clean, shining, symmetrical fruits and vegetables. However, not even 100 years ago, we viewed food differently. Our ancestors consumed vegetables picked straight from the fields, still flecked with microscopic soil.
This soil contained beneficial bacteria that helped regulate the immune system, protecting the individual from bacterial and fungal overgrowth in the intestines.
By reintroducing these soil-based organisms (SBOs) into our body, we increase the diversity of beneficial bacteria in our digestive tract. SBOs are linked to reductions in abdominal discomfort, bloating, nausea, flatulence, and constipation. Specific SBOs have also been shown to secrete proteins that activate the immune system and stimulate the production of white blood cells and antibodies.
Another advantage to soil-based organisms is that dairy-based bacteria struggle to make it through the hostile, acidic environment of the stomach, resulting in a significantly reduced number arriving in the small intestine. In fact, this is why many nutritionists and digestive experts recommend taking a dairy-based probiotic supplement with a high CFU (colony-forming units) count in an attempt to ensure that enough bacteria survive to be of any benefit to the host.
On the other hand, soil-based organisms employ a survival strategy called endosperm formation. These hardier SBOs remain dormant and more protected from the harsh stomach environment, raising the likelihood of survival into the lower intestine. The aim is
Soil-based organisms also colonize the gut more effectively. Effective colonization means that the host can reduce probiotic dosage to ‘maintenance’ levels* much sooner without worrying that the health benefits of the probiotics will disappear, making them
* Maintenance dosages are approximately 1000 – 2000mg daily depending on individual eating and drinking habits.
Looking for the best probiotic?
More stable and better at colonization than its probiotic cousins, the Royal Flora formula is a live, non-mutated, primary culture dormant in the capsule. It is not freeze-dried or fermented, does not require refrigeration, and has a shelf life of many years.
It does not contain dairy, salt, sugar, artificial color or flavoring, fillers or preservatives. Be assured that with each capsule you will introduce the most efficient number of SBOs into your digestive tract, alive and well, ready to colonize. Give your body what it needs and it will give you what you need: VIBRANT HEALTH!
Royal Flora does not treat disease -- it treats the body!
What others say...
Based on experience and knowing our digestive systems, I believe soil-based probiotics are far superior to any we'd need to refrigerate. (With a body temp of 98 how long will they survive?) What's unique about this brand is the addition of cilantro - nice for anyone trying to rid themselves of heavy metals.
I remember asking Dr. Wolfe how long we should take Royal Flora. His answer was, "for the rest of your life." And we have done so - no bowel problems at all to age 69!
Will not be without this probiotic.
A week after I ran out of my first bottle of Royal Flora, I started feeling heavy, tired and bloated. My body was not happy. I immediately ordered a new bottle and couldn't wait to get my body back to feeling great!
These are basically the only probiotic where I am able to notice a positive difference in my GI health while I'm taking them and afterwards. Good stuff!
I've found it to be the most beneficial probiotic I have used thus far. The recommended dose is 2 capsules a day, but I have taken 4 within a 24-hour period.
Royal Flora is my choice in soil-based probiotics. Soil-based probiotics are a fabulously effective approach to repopulating the gut. The soil-based organisms are cultured in declayed plant matter free from pesticides, chemicals and toxins.
This is a great product. I've been trying to introduce probiotics for a couple of years but everything caused gut irritation. I have introduced these very slowly, but they are working!
