What are Probiotics? & Why I Use Them

We all have a microbiome, this is our body’s ecosystem. Our microbial cells outnumber our human cells 10:1. This is why it’s important to keep our microbiome balanced. Another important note is that your probiotics need to get down to your gut, a lot of the capsules made by different brands don’t make it past your stomach acid because of how the capsule is made. Hyperbiotics capsules are made with BIO-tract® technology which means more of the probiotics get to the gut.

I’m also such a huge fan of Hyperbiotics because they are so helpful! They have a ton of information all about probiotics on their website and they have a healthy living blog. Here is a little info straight from the website.

Here are the top 10 things that destroy our good gut bacteria on a daily basis:

1. Western diet high in processed foods and low in plant-based fibers
2. The overuse of antibiotics, both as medicine and in our food supply
3. Sugar, artificial sweeteners, emulsifiers and GMO foods
4. Tap water (chlorine and fluoride)
5. Excessive hygiene, antibacterials and antimicrobials
6. Certain medications (birth control, acid suppressants -PPIs-, antacids, steroids, hormone replacement therapy and NSAIDs, etc)
7. Not enough time outdoors
8. Emotional stress
9. Exposure to toxins, pollution and pesticides
10. The aging process

Probiotics keep you feeling your best by:

  • Aiding digestion
  • Increasing your energy levels
  • Reducing temporary inflammation
  • Strengthening your immune system
  • Supporting brain function and mental clarity
  • Helping you absorb the nutrients from your food and vitamins
  • Promoting optimal body weight, metabolism and blood sugar levels

And so much more!

Probiotics & Prebiotic

I rotate a few different formulas depending on the day, I’ve tried almost all of the formulas. They have one for everyone, even kids & pets! My daughter takes her chewable tablets every day and loves them. If you’re not sure what formula is right for you they have a test you can take right here. You can shop probiotics below in the shop section.

I like mixing the prebiotic powder in my smoothies to get those benefits. Prebiotics work with your probiotics and have a lot of benefits, you can read more about that here.

Probiotic Toothpaste

I just started using the Hyperbiotics toothpaste as well! It’s a newer product and also has a ton of benefits. Did you know some toothpaste with artificial chemicals, detergents, and foaming agents can strip your mouth of crucial microbes? This toothpaste includes activated charcoal to whiten your teeth and balance your oral pH, as well as L. paracasei, organic coconut oil, and xylitol to promote healthy mouth flora.

Probiotic Skincare

It’s no secret that H2o+ is one of my favorite skincare brands. I was so excited when they launched their new Rapids line because it has probiotics! So probiotics in your skincare help strengthen the surface of your skin and helps it retain moisture and nutrients. Aka, hello healthy bouncy skin! So far from the Rapids line, I’ve tried the:

  • Soothing Probiotic Bubble Mask – a luxe bubbling mask that leaves my skin feeling and looking amazing.
  • Probiotic Sorbet Moisturizer – a unique formula that bursts into tiny droplets to hydrate your skin instantly and lasts all day.
  • Probiotic Champagne Illuminator – a lightweight and sheer boost of radiance, sort of like a makeup and skincare product in one.
