Our Probiotic friend, Bacillus subtilis R0179
We are totally mad for Bacillus subtilis R0179...
Why I hear you wonder?
While nearly all probiotics require refrigeration, many do not survive being suspended in any form of liquid for more than a few months, let alone the process of digestion.
Bacillus subtilis R0179 is an armoured probiotic..which means it wears a protective coating. Like a shield. Laboratory tests show that Bacillus subtilis R0179 has a 99% survival rate in liquid for over 12 months. What does that mean?
You get the 1 billion colony forming units (cfu's) at the time of bottling and they are still there one year later. Yes! They are in for the long haul.
These mini gladiators survive the bottle, they survive digestion and by the time they make it way to your lower intestine (where probiotics are actually needed), the armour they are coated in cracks open allowing the strain to be released ALIVE allowing them to flourish and thrive.
Bacillus subtilis R0179 is also completely invisible AND tasteless in an aqueous environment. It's why we don't need to colour or flavour our mineral water to mask it. B. subtilis is in stealth mode, like one billion microscopic gladiators going to battle in your gut every day.
How very sneaky of us!
