The Best Way to Improve Gut Health

12 March 2018


How do you keep your gut healthy and what are the benefits of doing so? One of the many answers is probiotics. Probiotics are especially essential for good gut health and there are plenty of products on the market that help prove this. However, there are many different kinds of probiotics available on the market, so how do you go about choosing? Well, the main distinction to make is where the probiotics are sourced from. Nature’s Choice Ultimate Probiotic is derived from soil-based organisms and is held in a solution which you do not refrigerate but drink at room temperature. So what distinguishes this type of probiotic and why do we think it’s of better value than other types of probiotics?

Soil-based Organisms and Their Benefits?

Soil-based Organisms (SBO ) is used to refer to a new class of probiotic supplements based on a greater understanding of the incredible diversity of the human gut, and a deeper appreciation for how humans and their commensal “helper”, bacteria work together to produce a healthy system.

Soil-based bacteria, also known as spore-forming bacteria, have the ability to “seed” the digestive tract with bacteria which will flourish and support a balanced gut.

Some characteristics which are unique to SBO probiotics include:

  • The structure of soil-based organisms is naturally resistant to the harsh environment of the upper digestive tract and stomach.
  • Additionally, unlike other probiotics not derived from soil, probiotics containing SBOs are stable and don’t need any special coatings or preservatives to ensure a clinically relevant amount reaches the appropriate areas of the gut.

This is due to a natural shell that preserves the probiotic spore against harm — whether in the terrestrial environment, or in the acidic environments in the stomach and upper intestines. When these probiotic microbiota are ingested, they travel all the way to the lower intestine, where they come alive. Like a seed, warm temperatures and moisture stimulate germination. Soil-based probiotics are well-adapted to the environment of the gut, and have been shown to remain in the digestive tract where they can provide this benefit in the long term.

Though the best types of SBO probiotics are based directly on symbiotic communities of bacteria found in the natural environment or soil, these probiotics are not harvested directly from the earth before bottling, but are instead produced in a safe, monitored environment which ensures specificity of the strains.
