Are you ready to take your functional drink game to the next level? Meet Bacillus coagulans - the probiotic superhero that's here to save the day (or rather, your gut)! You may be wondering, "What's so special about this strain of bacteria?" Well, let us tell you. B. coagulans is a real survivor – it’s able to withstand the harsh conditions of the stomach and make its way to the intestinal tract, where it can start doing its magic. This makes it the perfect addition to our instant kombucha, as it'll still be effective when you choose to SYP.
But what exactly can B. coagulans do for you? For starters, it's a master of balance. It produces lactic acid, which helps to keep the pH levels in your gut in check. This means better digestion, less bloating and constipation. Lactic acid also creates a more favorable environment for good gut bacteria like Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium to grow and prevents bad bacteria from multiplying. Talk about a win-win! But B. coagulans isn't just good for your gut - it's also got your back when it comes to your immune system. Studies have shown that consuming B. coagulans on a regular basis can lead to an increase in white blood cells, which are like the body's personal army against infection.
And let's not forget about inflammation. B. coagulans has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to reduce inflammation throughout the body. This can lead to a reduction in symptoms of conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome and antibiotic-associated diarrhea. But that's not all, B. coagulans has been shown to provide additional benefits like reducing cholesterol levels, improving mental well-being and boosting overall gut health.
Therefore, B. coagulans is like a one-stop shop for your gut and overall health. So, if you're looking to up your functional drink game and give yourself something extra special, look no further than B coagulans. Trust us, your gut (and taste buds) will thank you.
