Prebiotics? Or Probiotics?

Should you take Prebiotics? Or Probiotics?

According to the latest findings from the Human Microbiome Project (HMP), the correct answer is both.

To understand why, here’s a quick refresher on your gut health.
Only in the last few years have scientists been able to figure out just how big and complex the microbiome ecosystem is.

Your unique microbiome is given to you, starting with your mom and what you acquire in the first 2 years of life. It can change over time as it is affected by your disease state, medications and other environmental factors.

Human microbiome cells outnumber the ones in the human body by 10 to 1. As well as that, microbes contribute more genes responsible for human survival than humans’ own genes.

The question is, what can you do to tilt the ratios in the favor of friendly, “good bacteria” – and find relief in your symptoms?

HMP-Diagram-Graph-2015-03-23_2103The HMP points to diversity of bacteria and that’s the reason for taking both Perfect Pass Prebiotic and Perfect Pass Probiotic.

To encourage the benefits of great gut health, it’s recommended that you increase the number of distinct species of microbes in your gut.

How do you do that?
You need daily prebiotics, ideally PHGG – partially hydrolyzed guar gum and one human strain Bacillus spore probiotic. That’s it.

Why PHGG Prebiotics?

GuarGum

GuarGum

The good bacteria in your gut thrive on this specific type of soluble fiber, increasing your diversity of bacteria, and your overall health.

PHGG has been scientifically researched to show how symptoms of diarrhea in kid, of bloating and gas, or abdominal discomfort reduce drastically.

Why Bacillus Spore Probiotics?

Bacillus-subtilis-HU58

Bacillus-subtilis HU58

Bacillus probiotics give you the best support. These probiotics areguaranteed to survive stomach acid 100% of the time. This is not the case with many other strains.

Most important as well, is that Bacillus spore probiotics are a human strain. That means you’re taking more of what you already have in your gut.
Taking PHGG prebiotics together with bacillus probiotic is like a “perfect cocktail” that gives your gut microbiome increased diversity. This is what maintains a healthy digestive system. You strengthen the protection of your natural probiotics, giving you a greater sense of well-being.

“How easy is it to take both prebiotics and probiotics?”

Bacillus spore probiotics make it very easy. You only need to take 1 per day and no refrigeration is needed.

Then drinking the prebiotic that is tasteless and odorless in a glass of water every day is also easy.

Remember these facts about Bacillus Strains:

they’re 100% compatible with the paleo diet
they have a 100% survival rate through stomach acid and bile (no other probiotics can attest to this).
you don’t have to refrigerate these Spore Probiotics
you only need 1 per day
Plus, you get the number you need, you only need to take more than what already exists in the gut to be beneficial.

You really feel the difference in your health and symptoms because you’re promoting diversity of other strains besides lactobacillus and bifidus that have other digestive and overall health benefits.

“Can prebiotics and probiotic combo help heal my gut in the long term?

Yes!

With the Human Microbiome Project, we can now recognize the disease you have based on the lack of diversity of the types of microbes in your gut.

So the real question is, how do you improve the diversity of your entire microbiome?

How do you heal your underlying gastrointestinal condition (IBS, crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, diarrhea, constipation etc.) instead of just symptomatic relief?

Here’s the answer. When you take Perfect Pass Prebiotics, you naturally increase the diversity of your good microbes. When you take Perfect Pass Probiotics, you naturally increase the diversity as well — and so much more.

Taking the combo pack keeps your gut bacteria diverse. These changes are not temporary. Human strain probiotics will multiply in the gut. PGHH Prebiotics will provide ‘fertilizer’ for probiotics to grow. The Combo Pack is perfect,, easy  way to strengthen your digestion on a daily basis.
