When it comes to getting health benefits from probiotics, there’s one important concept you MUST be aware of…
For probiotics to do any good at all, they need to make it alive and intact to your intestinal tract.
Unfortunately, that’s not the case with many probiotics available today.
You see, outside environmental conditions like heat and moisture can kill probiotics before you even get them home.
And once inside your body, harsh fluids like stomach acid can wreak havoc on probiotics that don’t have some kind of built-in protection.
So, with all this going on, how can you make sure you’re getting probiotics that are alive?
Smart Belly Has The Answer...
To solve this problem, and make sure our probiotics do what they’re supposed to, Smart Belly makes use of two unique patents.
These patents, which have been proven effective over the years, work together to get as many live probiotics into your digestive system as possible.
Without going overboard on the science, let’s briefly explain how these patents, and Smart Belly, work.
Patent #1: Bio-tract®
(US Patents 8,007,777 and 7,150,623)
What It Means To You: Our probiotics are 15 times more effective than standard capsules*. That means you get LIVE probiotics that actually make it to where they’re supposed to go!
Have you ever seen those probiotic brands out there that brag about how many “CFUs” their product contains? 25 billion, 50 billion, 100 billion and more!
Do you ever stop to think why they’re making claims like that (and how their pills aren’t the size of baseballs)?
Of course you know it’s mostly a marketing ploy, but there’s another reason as well…
Many probiotic supplements contain probiotics that die off well before they ever make it into your intestines.
And why do so many of these probiotics die off?
You can probably guess the answer-- stomach acid.
Enteric-coated and veggie capsules just don’t offer probiotics any protection against the damaging effects of stomach acid.
So while a probiotic may claim to contain 50 billion CFUs, the truth is many, if not all of those probiotics will be dead before they get to where they need to be.
Is there a solution to this universal problem?
The answer is yes, and it’s called Bio-tract®.
You see, Bio-tract® is a patented probiotic delivery system that ensures survivability far greater than any capsule can provide.
With this system, when one of our tablets gets moistened by gastric fluids, a gel barrier forms around the probiotics that protects them from stomach acid.
Once it makes it inside the gastrointestinal tract, the tablet begins a slow and steady release of live probiotics.
This ensures that our probiotics make it deep into your intestinal tract, alive and well, where they’re needed most!
Patent #2: LiveBac®
(US Patents 6,627,220 and 7,150,623)
What It Means To You: Our probiotics have a long shelf life and don’t require refrigeration.
Similar to what we talked about above, many probiotic brands require refrigeration to keep their probiotics alive and able to last on the shelves or in your medicine cabinet.
Not Smart Belly!
We utilize a patented manufacturing process called LiveBac® that helps protect probiotics from the time they’re made all the way until they reach your gastrointestinal tract.
Proven over many years, LiveBac® ensures an 18-month shelf life on all probiotics and also does away with the need for refrigeration.
That might not sound like a big deal, but it makes all the difference if you want your probiotics to do what you bought them to do!
The Proof Is In The Pudding…
It’s innovations like Bio-tract® and LiveBac® that make Smart Belly probiotics some of the very best on the market.
Both of these proven and patented systems ensure that our probiotics make it alive and intact to your intestines.
Unfortunately, that’s not the case with a majority of probiotics available today.
So give Smart Belly a try.
When you do, we’re confident you’ll see and feel the difference right away!
* Patented Bio-tract® delivery technology consistently delivers as many as 15 times, or more, the number of live, viable probiotic organisms past simulated stomach acids than (plain/standard) capsules as repeatedly demonstrated through in vitro lab testing.
