Probiotics – What are they and why are they good for us?
Many of you know about probiotics and how they are “the healthy bacteria” that live in our gut. When most people think of bacteria it’s not ever a good thing right. But when you know what probiotics are and what they do for your gut, you know that this healthy kind of bacteria is great for the immune system, urinary health, digestion, allergies, eczema, respiratory infections, inflammation, mental health, and so much more.
Look at probiotics as what provides a healthy balance of bacteria needed in our guts. Our guts are considered our second brain. The reason for that is everything we consume goes straight to the gut. This affects every part of our bodies, even our brains. You can be depressed, anxious, annoyed, moody, aggravated, unmotivated all by what you put in your gut. This all ties into healthy living. You need a healthy gut to function properly both physically and mentally.
Most diseases start in the gut. If you have an unhealthy gut, your body will have a hard time absorbing any nutrients no matter what you eat. You have to restore you gut first with the proper nutrients like probiotics to be able to reap the benefits of say your daily vitamins, the superfoods you eat, the fruits, the veggies, etc. For example say you have a very unhealthy gut and start eating chia seed pudding. You won’t get all the benefits that chia seeds have to offer because by the time it gets to your gut all its nutritional content has been depleted. Your body absorbed very very little of it’s health properties. Now if you restore your gut, get rid of the inflammation, the yeast and the unhealthy bacteria that is invading your space, when you go to eat that chia seed pudding you will be well equipped to absorb all it’s amazingness. This is the best way I can explain how important gut health is because it’s easily understandable this way. When I explain it to most people like this, it’s like they get it. I think it’s important for people to fully understand how the body works and what we can do to maximize the good benefits of what we’re taking in.
With Silver Fern Brand Ultimate Probiotic they take a unique approach to healthy living that begins with the understanding that gut health has a huge influence on every single cell in the body. Losing weight or even gaining weight (for people that can not absorb nutrients) is very difficult for most if their gut health is in poor condition. Their program is a combination of products that include high fiber and clinically proven probiotic strains. The combo of their probiotics and plenty of fiber are the key to restoring gut health, boosting metabolism, and helping overcome a lot of diseases that start in the gut. Things like better digestion, nutrition absorption, improved mood etc… The ELEVATED program they have is designed to work well with any lifestyle, as long as that person is eating healthy, Whole Foods, and exercising regularly.
This particular probiotic is VERY different from other companies. It was formulated by Microbiologist Kiran Krishnan, is DNA verified and pharmaceutical grade and has 100% survivability (unlike any other probiotic) all of their products are third party tested and scientifically researched. With this kind of background you can trust this company and know it’s safe. I believe as a consumer transparency is key and a company like Silver Brand who takes the initiative to go the extra step and provide anticipatory service for their consumers makes it my kind of company.
Functional Benefits of the Ultimate Probiotic
An encapsulated probiotic product packaged in a 150cc PET bottle. Each capsule contains a dose of 4 X 10^9 cfu Bacillus Clausii, Bacillus Subtilis, Bacillus Coagulans, Pediococcus Acidilactici and Saccharomyces Boulardii. Each bottle contains 60 capsules.
- Improves digestion and food tolerance
- Reduces gas, bloating and digestive discomfort
- Aids in recovery of the flora after antibiotic use

- Improves regularity of bowel movements
- Acidifies the digestive tract to support the growth of good bacteria
Ultimate Probiotic is the ONLY probiotic therapy product that contains Saccharomyces Boulardii, Bacillus Subtilis, Bacillus Coagulans, Pediococcus Acidilactici and Bacillus Clausii – the most well studied and widely used probiotics with tremendous synergy. All strains have been proven to be safe and effective probiotics with over 50 years of pharmaceutical use. The cells remain viable for over 3 years in its finished form. The following are distinct advantages with use of Ultimate Probiotic:
Convenient and effective delivery – Compliance and ease of use is increased with just 1 capsule per day and the capsule can be opened and the powder mixed into any food or beverage.
No need for refrigeration – This is a major advantage as refrigerated shelf space and cold chain supply aren’t required.
Long shelf life – Stable for over 2 years+
High Barrier to Entry – None of the strains are widely available
When making the decision on which probiotic to use it can be a daunting task. There are so many brands out there. Here are some things to consider:
Bacillus Species – There are about 1000 species of bacteria in your digestive tract, some good, some bad. Only one species, the Bacillus family of probiotics, has been scientifically shown to boost metabolism and burn fat.
Survivability Matters – Studies show that the vast majority of probiotics on the market are either dead on the shelf or will die while passing through the harsh, acidic environment of the stomach. If the probioitic doesn’t gaurantee 100% survivability, save your money.
DNA Verification – Recent studies show that 90% of probiotic supplement products on the market actually contain strains that are not listed on the label (most are dead anyways, so it really won’t matter). If a product hasn’t been verified by DNA analysis, you have no idea what you’re taking
Quality vs. Quantity – Don’t be fooled by probiotics that offer tens of billions CFU (colony forming units) of extremely cheap and ineffective bacterial strains. With probiotics it is all about quality over quantity. Pharmaceutical grade probiotics need just a few billion of the most powerful Bacillus strains.
They hit the nail on the head for me with this probiotic. If you use this brand already or have tried it, I’d love to hear your thoughts on it. Drop me a line below. And remember that what you put in your gut affect all parts of your body!
