The World Health Organization and Harvard Medical School's Division of Nutrition define probiotics as "...live organisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host."
Approximately 90% of the cells in the human body consist of "good" and "bad" bacteria, most of which are located in the gastrointestinal tract - where 100% of the digestive function, the foundation of metabolic function and 70% - 80% of the immune function are located. The "good" bacteria play a critical role in overall health and wellness.
Our patented, foil-blister cap and foil packets prevent our probiotics from being exposed to moisture and heat-generating light. Therefore, GoLive probiotics are alive and viable (and, in fact, growing!) when it counts - at the time of consumption!
Simply put, prebiotics are sugars and soluble fibers consumed by probiotics. They are essential for the growth and colonization of probiotics in the human gastrointestinal tract.
Additionally, various GoLive products contain amino acids, vitamins and/or electrolytes (e.g., potassium, magnesium).
The addition of selected amino acids and vitamins benefit the integrity of the epithelial cells of the gastrointestinal tract and allow for bacterial colonization. Think of it as priming the wall before you paint.
There is a broad array of products on the market - pills, capsules, yeast-based fermented beverages (many containing alcohol), juices, etc. - adding various organisms as ingredients so they may add the word "probiotics" to their labels. Though, probiotics are not simply another ingredient.
Unfortunately for consumers, few products contain clinically-tested, documented probiotic strains. Many use undocumented strains, as well as organisms such as Bacillus coagulans and other spore-formers that "are not considered normal members of the intestinal flora and do not persist in the mammalian gastrointestinal tract," per the American Society for Microbiology.
And many fewer formulate their products with a diverse blend of prebiotic non-GMO sugar and prebiotic non-GMO soluble fibers, and appropriately package them, to allow consumption the way nature intended (and how we used to consume them in food): in a dynamic, live and growing state.
No pills. No capsules. No yeast-based fermented beverages. No Bacillus coagulans (or other spore-formers). Only human-commensurate probiotics and non-GMO prebiotics. Period.
