Probiotics have gained massive appeal over the last several years. As live bacteria and yeasts that improve your digestive system—probiotics are well known for being helpful bacteria used to keep your gut healthy.
Hi, I’m Sean Torbati and I’ve spent the majority of my life creating supplements and products designed to improve the human experience at a physical, mental, and performance-based level.
Many people are familiar with the benefits of probiotics, yet others are unaware of another product that exists known as prebiotics. While probiotics are live bacteria found in certain foods, prebiotics are heavily derived from fiber-based carbohydrates that can’t be digested by humans. Beneficial bacteria within your gut rely upon this fiber.
As part of the Ambrosia Collective, I set out to create the most powerful probiotic/prebiotic product ever made. I bring to you Flora Probiotic + Prebiotic Digestive Enzyme—the only probiotic you’ll ever need.
Let’s take a look at the ingredients contained in this world-class product.
SL 14 Vegan Probiotic Blend
Our vegan probiotic blend contains 32 billion CFUs with prebiotics that nourish and fuel probiotics. As a blend that improves gut bacteria and boosts immunity—it helps deliver the results your body requires.
The first ingredient as part of our SL14 Vegan Probiotic Blend is Lactobacillus Acidophilus. As a substance isolated from the intestinal tract of humans and animals—it is an intestinal probiotic capable of eliciting the beneficial effects of the microbiota of the gastrointestinal tract (1). Studies have shown that it can help to reduce cholesterol levels that survive in an acid and bile environment (2). Lactobacillus acidophilus has been shown to help enhance immune function and improve overall health.
The second ingredient contained within SL14 Vegan Probiotic Blend is Bifidobacterium Breve. Evidence has often been shown to suggest relationships between gut microbiota and obesity with probiotics shown to be a therapeutic approach. Bifidobacterium breve has been shown to exert anti-obesity effects (3). Bifidobacterium breve has the potential to be a functional food ingredient for reducing body fat in healthy pre-obese individuals.
Nutraflora FB P-95
As a prebiotic fiber ingredient to support bifidus, acidophilus and other beneficial gut bacteria—Nutraflora contains at least 95% pure fructooligosaccharides to ensure high potency and consistency (4).
Nutraflora is made from non-GMO cane sugar and has few calories with a pleasant taste that is about 30% as sweet as sugar. Some of the benefits of Nutraflora include:
- Bone health mineral absorption
- Immune strength
- Digestive health
Most adults consume less than 25-35g of fiber per day causing massive problems related to intestinal function, chronic constipation, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) (5). NutraFlora improves intestinal function, bifidogenesis, and other immune health benefits. As part of Flora Probiotic—Nutraflora provides an array of benefits to users.
As a premium, all-encompassing blend of digestive enzymes used to formulate the support of digestion of dairy, legumes, cruciferous vegetables, cereal grains, proteins, and other foods—our DigiSEB Enzyme Blend helps to address digestive needs using a unique probiotic blend of ingredients.
The last part of Flora Probiotic is our unique enzyme blend. The first ingredient contained in our enzyme blend is DigeSEB. As a proven product shown to be effective for promoting optimal digestion and nutrient absorption—it can help to support the digestion of foods such as legumes, milk, soy, and cereal grains (6). DigeSEB doesn’t just neutralize stomach acid or slow the digestive process—it helps to address the causes of digestive discomfort.
A 2002 study found that DigeSEB can even break down hydrolyzed collagen (7). DigeSEB consists of three targeted digestive enzymes that help to breakdown proteins, carbohydrates, fats, and dairy.
As a group of enzymes that hydrolyze starch—amylase is found in high concentration within the pancreas of all animals (8). As an important and indispensable enzyme that plays a pivotal role in the field of biotechnology—it is primarily used in diagnosing pancreatic diseases (9).
Lactases are enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of lactose into galactose and glucose (10). It is expressed robustly through mammalian small intestinal absorptive cells. Humans are born with high levels of lactase activity, but deficiencies can be found in most adults.
Lactose intolerance depends not only on the expression of lactase but the dose of lactose, intestinal flora, gastrointestinal motility, and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (11). The enzyme helps to digest lactose, a sugar found in milk and other dairy products. Lactase can be produced by cells that line the walls of the small intestine.
As enzymes that catalyse hydrolysis of the peptide and isopeptide bonds—proteases arose during the earliest stages of protein evolution as simple destructive enzymes necessary for protein catabolism and the generation of amino acids in primitive organisms (12).
Proteases are encoded by over 550 human genes and often used for protein degradation and pronase (13).
As an enzyme that breaks down triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol—lipases are responsible for fat digestion (14). Lipase is crucial within many medications for lowering cholesterol.
Low levels of lipase may indicate damage to cells in the pancreas that make lipase. Lipase levels that are not normal may indicate chronic diseases such as cystic fibrosis.
Cellulase is produced by fungi, bacteria, protozoans, plants, and animals. As inducible enzymes synthesized by a large diversity of microorganisms—fungi and bacteria are used for the growth of cellulosic materials (15).
Cellulases and enzyme hydrolyse cellulose can be turned into glucose and other active ingredients such as dextrose and fructose. It helps to improve the extraction rate by increasing the permeability of plant cell walls (16).
The World’s BEST Probiotic Blend
As the only vegan-friendly probiotic with 32 billion CFUs, a vegan based prebiotic blend, and a clinically proven digestive enzyme—it helps you feel better immediately after a single dose. As the most advanced and powerful probiotic ever made—Flora is created with transparent vegan ingredients.
If you have any questions about Flora or any of our other products—I’m here to help provide you with the support and feedback needed to be successful at physical, mental, and emotional level.
