About probiotics

Probiotics are often called the "good" or "helpful" bacteria and yeast because they help keep your gut healthy.

Naturally present in fermented foods such as yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, etc. However, not all foods labeled as “probiotics” on the market have proven health benefits.

“live microorganisms that, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host”

Defined by: The International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics

Benefits of Probiotics

mixmi cultures are tried and true

We add 5 live and active cultures to our milk which is then perfectly fermented until there are billions of cultures per serving. 

     * 3 probiotics

     * 2 traditional yogurt cultures

 

mixmi is tested for Live & Active cultures using the International Dairy Foods Association testing methods and standards for Live & Active Cultures.

Lactobacillus bulgaricus

L. bulgaricus is a beneficial bacteria found in the digestive tract of mammals. 

 

L. Bulgaricus is one of the first strains ever studied. The Russian Nobel Prize winner, Ilya Mechnikov, first isolated Lactobacillus Bulgaricus around 1882 when he discovered the bacteria's role in beneficial digestion.  Even though L. bulgaricus is not considered a probiotic in the United States, it has been studied and shown to have health benefits.

Researched benefits of L. bulgaricus
  • decrease triglycerides, LDL levels, total cholesterol

  • increase immunity and fight viruses

  • decrease leaky gut symptoms

  • decrease diarrhea & nausea

  • improve dairy digestion

  • decrease inflammation

  • improve IBS symptoms

  • decrease tooth decay

  • decrease leaky gut

  • fight dyspepsia

Streptococcus thermophilus

S. thermophilus is a powerful culture that is often found in the colon and can have digestive, immunity and other health benefits. 

S. thermophilus is commonly used to make cheeses and yogurts. This culture also produces lactase which can help people digest milk more efficiently.

This culture also produces antibiotic chemicals which can help to prevent infection from pneumonia and C. difficile.  It can also help prevent ulcers.

 

Researched benefits of S. thermophilus

  • enhance immunity

    • prevent & fight upper respiratory infections (eg. pneumonia)

    • prevent ulcers caused by H. pylori

    • decrease AIDS symptoms

    • fight Clostridium difficile

    • increase immunity

  • additional health benefits

    • improve non-breast-fed infant probiotic flora

    • reduce symptoms of atopic dermatitis

    • prevent bacterial vaginosis infections

    • decrease chance of kidney stones

    • increase HDL (good cholesterol)

    • increase anti-tumor activity

    • decrease baby colic

  • improve digestion

    • reduce antibiotic associated diarrhea

    • decrease ulcerative colitis symptoms

    • decrease leaky gut symptoms

    • improve lactose digestion

    • decrease IBS symptoms

    • decrease acute diarrhea

Lactobacillus acidophilus

Isolated in the 1890's by the Russian Llya Metchnikoff who was the first to research and show that L. acidophilus plays an important role in our digestion. Research in recent decades has indicated that supplementing with L. acidophilus can aid our digestion and also help treat diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and leaky gut syndrome.  It may also reduce lactose intolerance and increase our absorption of calcium and B vitamins.  L. acidophilus may even improve appetite.

Bifidobacterium lactis

Bifidobacterium lactis are well studied probiotic bacteria. Scientific studies have indicated that B. lactis supports immunity, fights tumor growth, improves digestion and can lower cholesterol.

For healthy people, Bifidobacterium naturally inhabit the intestines & the colon in great numbers. Generally, their job is to break down body waste & aid in the absorption of various vitamins & minerals

Researched benefits of B. lactis
  • Improve Digestive Conditions

    • improve general digestive comfort

    • decrease intestinal permeability

    • decrease lactose intolerance

    • normalize bowel movements

    • decrease IBS symptoms

    • decrease constipation

    • treat acute diarrhea

  • Reduce Allergies and Inflammation

    • decrease atopic dermatitis symptoms and sensitivity

    • decrease inflammatory responses

  • Enhance Immunity

    • reduce frequency & severity of respiratory diseases

    • increase vaccination immune response

    • increase immunity among the elderly

    • inhibit H. pylori (can cause ulcers)

    • increase T-cell activity as needed

    • strengthen the immune system

    • reduce colds and flu
