Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that occur naturally in the human intestinal tract. Foods "cultured" with beneficial strains of probiotics such as yogurt and kefir have been used throughout history to improve overall health and vitality, and today, there are many studies reinforcing their ability to balance and promote digestive health. Probiotics also play an important role in modulating the immune system, 70% of which is located in the gut.
Selected strains of beneficial bacteria must first be cultured on a food medium, such as milk or soy. Since each strain of probiotics has an affinity for a different part of the digestive tract, and a unique mechanism of action, a product that delivers multiple strains is preferable to single strain products. As the probiotics replicate, they biotransform the food medium, making nutrients more bioavailable while secreting beneficial compounds into the medium called "synbiotics." Research suggests that synbiotics are largely responsible for the benefits of probiotics. In other words, "the medium is the message."
Most probiotic supplement manufacturers separate the probiotics from their food medium once the desired number of cultures is achieved, and therefore fail to deliver the full range of health benefits associated with eating probiotic foods. New Chapter's Probiotics with a Purpose line, however, uniquely offers multi-species blends of live probiotics with the synbiotic-rich organic growth medium intact.
