Why Just Thrive Probiotic?
Just Thrive a 100% spore-based probiotic – has been carefully formulated with highly effective, safe and verified strains that have been licensed from Royal Holloway London University. Most probiotic products on the market have focused on adding more strains and higher cell counts to help boost their marketing message, yet there is no scientific evidence that having dozens of strains at very high cell counts have any benefit at all. It is far more effective to have 2-4 verified, tested, high quality strains than to have a random mix of 15-20 different strains that have not been tested.
A number of published studies have shown that many of these formulations with a dozen or more strains are often mislabeled where the wrong strains are shown on the label and strains that don't appear on the label are in the product. They create these formulations where companies simply throw in everything to make the formulation look robust. If you look at any high quality, prescription probiotic, you won't find one with more than 2-3 strains as it's simply not necessary and, in fact, having a dozen strains can actually hinder the effectiveness of a probiotic product.
It is important to remember that most of the products available with 10 billion or even as high as 100 billion cells are formulated with lactobacillus and bifidobacterium strains, which are strains that are not probiotics by all scientific definitions. Companies that use these non-probiotic strains look to compete with others by simply increasing the cell count in each capsule, but is this effective?
Numerous published studies have shown that no matter how many billions of cells you have of lactobacillus and bifidobacterium species, they simply do not survive the stomach, they don't get to the intestines alive and so the count is irrelevant. In addition, if they did happen to survive somehow, would they be effective probiotics then? The answer is no! Even with 100 billion cells of lactobacillus and bifidobacterium species, they are not delivering an effective dose. What makes an effective dose isn't how many probiotic cells are in your probiotic capsule. An effective dose is defined by how that amount of probiotics in your capsule compares to the population of that same species naturally found in your gastrointestinal system.
There are over 10 TRILLION lactobacillus and bifidobacterium cells in your digestive system, thus adding even 100 Billion is less than 0.1% of the existing population, and your body doesn't even notice it. It's like adding a single penny into a bucket with 4000 quarters; you would never notice it and it doesn't add any value to what is already there. Just Thrive is made up of key strains whose numbers tend to remain low in the digestive system. Typically they have a population of around 5-6 million cells in the digestive system. When you add 3 billion cells from Just Thrive to a population of just 5-6 million, you get a massive, positive stimulation as your effective dose exceeds the native population by over 500 times. It's like adding 20 quarters to a cup that contains just 1 penny you are adding a lot of value.
The four strains included in Just Thrive are:
Bacillus Subtilis HU58
Bacillus Indicus HU36
Are Spores Safe?
The Bacillus spores used in Just Thrive® are absolutely safe. In fact, they are a normal part of the human micro flora. They have been used in the pharmaceutical market for more than 50 years. In addition, they have been found to be functional probiotics in hundreds of different living organisms, making them a universal probiotic.
What is the source of the antioxidants in Just Thrive
A patented strain in Just Thrive® called Bacillus Indicus HU36® actually produces a variety of antioxidants in the digestive system right where they are best absorbed by the body. Studies have shown that supplemented antioxidants do not effectively survive the stomach and so the actual absorption rate is low when taken as a supplement by mouth. With Just Thrive®, however, the body becomes a super-antioxidant factory right in the digestive system at the site where these important nutrients are absorbed. It's right at the site of absorption where CoQ10, alpha and beta carotene, lycopene, lutein, astaxanthin and zeaxanthin are produced!
Just Thrive Probiotic Suggested Use
Adults and children above the age of 3: One (1 ) capsule per day or as directed by your physician. Capsules also can be opened and mixed with food for consumption. We recommend starting out slowly to avoid any gastrointestinal discomfort especially if you have feel you are dysbiotic (imbalanced).
