So How Do We Know What to Use?
I am constantly reading double-blind placebo-controlled studies, and I am especially skeptical when it comes to studies paid for by the company who produces a product. In this case, I gotta say that these studies were very impressive in their setup, metrics, and effects.
The first study involved yogurt, Greek yogurt, a top probiotic supplement, and Just Thrive Spore-Based Probiotics, and what they found was astonishing. Just Thrive had a 100% survival rating as it passed through the acid in our stomachs! The other probiotics had less than a 0.1% survival rate.
Natural Immune Boosters
For those of you who are not up to speed about the human microbiome, between 70%-80% of our immune system resides in our gut more specifically in our small intestine where there are many key microbes and receptor sites to keep us healthy. If your probiotic supplement never makes it here, then it is not doing its job.
What’s more is that these specific organisms in the Bacillus species (not to be confused with Lactobacillus) have been shown to specifically target the bad bacteria whereas things like colloidal silver and many other natural antimicrobial compounds kill ALL bacteria like an antibiotic does.
