How It Works
Bacillus coagulans is a strain of friendly probiotic that is naturally heat-stable. It can also more readily withstand the stomach's acidic environment, thereby better providing targeted support to the intestine and maintaining balance in the microbiome.

Q & A
W/ DR. TRIPP
(NSP Chief Scientific Officer)
Q: "Microbiome" is one of the natural health industry's latest buzzwords. What is it and why is it important?
A: Outside of the lab, organisms rarely live in isolation, but instead live in complex communities; this relationship is referred to as symbiosis. The human body contains about 100 trillion cells, 90 trillion of which are bacteria and fungi that live on us and in us and perform needed or harmful activities. Some of them help with digestion or help extract vitamins or nutrients from food. Others can cause serious illness when not kept in check. Over the past 10 years or so, researchers have discovered that some gut bacteria - when not kept in check by a healthy microbiome - can produce enough endotoxins to trigger a host of problems. For example, endotoxins in the bloodstream have been associated with blood sugar imbalance and weight management issues. If you think of the gut being its own ecosystem, that's a good analogy for a microbiome.
The health of the microbiome is directly linked with energy levels, immune system health and more. So it's vital to keep the gut healthy for overall wellbeing.
Q: What steps can a person take to properly care for his/her microbiome?
A: Maintaining a healthy microbiome begins with diet as what we eat can influence the balance of gut microflora. Eating a high-fiber, low-carb diet with lots of vegetables and plenty of protein supports healthy glucose levels, staves off hunger and sugar cravings, and supports pancreatic health. Certain fermentable fibers such as inulin (onions are a good source) give the gut bacteria a vital food source while protein nourishes the body and helps with satiety without overworking the pancreas.
Next we can support the microbiome with key nutrients:
- Berberine IR is a constituent found in a few plants that not only helps support the microbiome, it helps support already-balanced blood sugar levels.
- Probiotics (friendly flora) taken daily help maintain the levels of good bacteria in the gut. NutriBiome™ Bacillus Coagulans is able to survive the acidic environment of the stomach, unlike most strains that can lose up to 95% of their viable microbes.
- Love and Peas® Sugar Free is a high-protein, low-carb meal replacement powder that allows us the health benefits of nutritious protein, including a feeling of fullness without animal products, gluten, dairy or sugar.
Contains 3 billion CFU (colony forming units) of Bacillus coagulans per serving plus prebiotic fiber.
How to Use
