Probiotics are the beneficial bacteria that line our digestive tract and support our health in a variety of ways. These good bacteria not only enhance proper digestion, breaking down our food and providing nutrients, but there is growing evidence that good digestive flora positively influences mood, energy, sleep, weight control, and a variety of daily functions within our body.
Consumption of probiotics, particularly certain species of Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli, can help balance our gut flora, increasing the number of helpful bacteria in the intestine.
Probiotics have also been shown to modulate the activity of the immune system, helping to control or reduce the development of certain allergies.
Finding the right formulation of probiotics can be challenging, with so many options to choose from. Our goal is to make it easy for you and to help you understand exactly what you need in a probiotic supplement so you can make the best choice for your natural health.
If you have been researching probiotics, you may have discovered that many probiotic supplements promote a high number of Colony Forming Units (CFUs) as the most important feature of their product. However, if these billions of microorganisms can’t withstand the harsh environment of the digestive system, you may be simply pouring your hard earned money quite literally down the toilet.
At Ameo Life, our first goal was to overcome this challenge by offering a shelf stable probiotic that would survive the journey from the manufacturer to your gastro-intestinal tract and into your large intestine.
Our digestive system is, by design, extremely acidic. To ensure the survival rate of the probiotic microorganisms, Ameo Life incorporated OPTI-BIOME(r) Patented technology. Bacillus subtilis MB40 is a shelf-stable, spore-forming probiotic which grows rapidly at 37 degrees Celsius (body temperature) and survives low pH environments as in the human stomach.
Our 15 billion CFUs do not require refrigeration, and easily navigate the acidic gastrointestinal environment. Unlike other probiotic supplements that overcompensate by producing 50 to 100 billion organisms in hopes that a fraction survive, our proprietary blend thrives, meaning that we don't have to add any fillers. Offering you simply the finest natural probiotic available for you and your family.
This is where Ameo Life has taken our probiotics to the next level. As well as stabilizing our beneficial microorganisms, we also set forth to incorporate these synergistic essentials into our formula to further assist with a healthier digestive system.
Turmeric Root has been widely documented for its natural anti-inflammatory properties and is a natural fit for a premium probiotic supplement.
Slippery elm is a herb that has a history for use for constipation. Slippery Elm helps to stimulate the nerves in the gastrointestinal tract which may offer relief from constipation.
The inner gel from the aloe vera plant has antimicrobial, healing and cooling properties.The aloe leaf innards are rich in compounds and plant mucilage which can help decrease irritation in the intestines.
Psyllium is a bulk-forming laxative, meaning that Psyllium naturally soaks up water in the gut and makes bowel movements much easier. Psyllium can help promote regularity without increasing flatulence.
Inulin is considered a prebiotic - a substance that assists in stimulating the growth of good bacteria, particularly Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli strains which are the staples of our probiotic.
Prebiotic foods are vital to encourage probiotic organisms to survive and thrive in the human gut. Beneficial bacteria must constantly be introduced in the diet and fed proper food to encourage them to adhere to the intestinal wall rather than passing through the digestive tract.
The addition of prebiotics ensures that our probiotic organisms have something to ‘eat’, and further ensures their survival.
Choosing the right probiotic helps get your gut health back on track. A probiotic that is truly making a positive difference will leave you feeling energized in the morning and will help overcome the feelings of bloating and discomfort that may keep you up at night.
Stronger Immune System
Do you catch more than your share of colds and illnesses? Given that 70% of the body's immune function resides in the gut, getting sick more than once or twice a year could indicate a serious imbalance in your gut.
Wake up feeling happy
Remember when you were a kid and each new day held promise and excitement? As we get older, digestive issues, a poor diet and stress deplete our body of serotonin (the chemical that makes us happy.) 95% of serotonin is found in the gut, and when the microbiome balance is "off," serotonin production decreases dramatically.
Enhanced Brain Function
Forget nootropics. Your brain functions best when it is nourished from within. The gut is often referred to as the body's "second brain", and how it functions directly affects your mental state. Studies now show that cognitive abilities are enhanced when the gut has a healthy and diverse microbiome.
Reduce Sugar Cravings
Did you know that the feeling of being hungry or full is controlled by your hormones? A proper gut balance ensures you have plenty of leptin (the hormone that makes you feel full), and it keeps ghrelin in check. Ghrelin is the gremlin that makes you hungry!
Promotes Weight Control
There's no denying that losing weight as we age becomes more challenging. But, it doesn't have to be. A healthy gut flora helps metabolize food more efficiently, while also restoring our hormones to an ideal balance.
