VITAFORCE is the Best Probiotic Supplement

ProbioticsPeople who are looking for a probiotic supplement often think that the quantity of the probiotics is the most important thing.  The line of thinking is that if getting 1 billion cfu/gram of probiotics is good, then getting 25 billion is 25 times better.

Unfortunately, this line of thinking is not at all correct.  There are other, far more important, factors to consider when choosing a probiotic/prebiotic supplement.

For instance, if you take in 1 billion of a high quality probiotic and nearly 100% of those probiotics have been clinically shown to survive your stomach acid and colonize your gut, then you are getting nearly 1 billion viable probiotics where you need them.  However, if you take 25 billion probiotics with a survivability rate of 2%, then you are actually getting only 500 million probiotics from that 25 billion probiotics.

To take this a step further, even if you are getting a high number of probiotics, do you know if they are benefiting your health?  Many strains of probiotics have never been studied and yet are sold as health products.  You have to be careful that you are consuming probiotics that have known benefits.

You should know the answers to six critical questions about your probiotic/prebiotic supplement before you consider taking it.  At Dynamics of Nature, we want you to know the full story so you can make the best decision about your dietary supplement regimen.

The questions are in the chart below:

Essential Questions for Probiotics/PrebioticsOther ProbioticsVITAFORCE®
Have the probiotics been proven to survive the transit from your mouth into the gut, or are a large number of the probiotics killed off in the harsh, acidic environment of your stomach, and by the bile salts and digestive enzymes in the duodenum?MAYBEYES
Once the probiotics are in your gut, are they proven to colonize on the gut wall?MAYBEYES
Is there appropriate food for the probiotics (namely, high quality prebiotics) to feed the growing colony of probiotics and to starve out the pathogenic bacteria in the gut?MAYBEYES
Does the probiotic supplement have a strain that is specifically for the large intestine and another strain that is specifically for the small intestine?MAYBEYES
Do the probiotic strains themselves have clinical support to show the benefits they provide, because many probiotic strains have shown absolutely no clinical benefit (and may actually be causing you harm)?MAYBEYES
Are there enough probiotics per serving to provide health benefits?MAYBEYES

More Detailed Responses

(1)  Have the probiotics been proven to survive the transit from your mouth into the gut, or are a large number of the probiotics killed off in the harsh, acidic environment of your stomach, and by the bile salts and digestive enzymes in the duodenum?

Our products are freeze-dried to promote stability all the way into the gut where they colonize.  They do survive the stomach and duodenum. 

(2)  Once the probiotics are in your gut, are they proven to colonize on the gut wall?

Yes, both of our strains of probiotics are proven to colonize on the gut wall.

(3)  Is there appropriate food for the probiotics (namely, high quality prebiotics) to feed the growing colony of probiotics and to starve out the pathogenic bacteria in the gut? 

It is very important that the probiotics have sufficient food to consume to proliferate in the gut, and starve out the pathogenic bacteria.  Fructoolicosaccharides are the best of all the prebiotics.  Unlike inulin, often sourced from chicory (And is sometimes mislabeled as FOS), true FOS does a fantastic job of giving a constant food source to the probiotics.  FOS is also immensely stable and will actually exponentially increase the probiotic count in your gut with or without actually taking any probiotics.  By having both probiotics and prebiotics in VITAFORCE, you are getting synergistic benefits. 

(4)  Does the probiotic supplement have a strain that is specifically for the large intestine and another strain that is specifically for the small intestine?

The Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS-1 in VITAFORCE will colonize the small intestine and the b. bifidum will colonize the large intestine.

(5)  Do the probiotic strains themselves have clinical support to show the benefits they provide, because many probiotic strains have shown absolutely no clinical benefit?

Indeed, the DDS-1 strain is one of the most heavily studied and most beneficial strains ever introduced.  Studies indicate that the DDS-1 strain:

  • May stimulate the immune system
  • May improve digestion and nutrient assimilation
  • May aid in reducing lactose intolerance
  • Inhibits production of Heliobacter pylori
  • Inhibits the growth of 23 toxic microorganisms
  • May aid in alleviation of “traveler’s diarrhea” and constipation
  • May aid in reducing lactose intolerance
  • May aid in relief of dermatitis and other skin disorders

Many strains of lactobacillus acidphilus and others have never been shown to have any benefit to humans in studies.  Since there are a very high number of strains for each probiotic made, you have to be careful.

(6)  Are there enough probiotics per serving to provide health benefits?

Generally speaking, you should be taking in at least 1 billion high quality probiotics a day to achieve the health benefits associated with them.  Probiotics may help improve your digestion and assimilation.

But if you take too much at once (in excess of 5 billion), you may very well notice stomach discomfort, gas, constipation, diarrhea or other uncomfortable side effects.  As with all things, more is not necessarily better.  The right amount is best.

The only reason to take more than 1 to 5 billion probiotics daily is if you have a medical need to take them.  Otherwise, a comfortable maintenance dose of 1 to 5 billion per day is plenty.

VITAFORCE not only has 2 billion extremely high quality probiotics per serving, but it also has the highest quality prebiotics which synergistically increases the potency and efficacy of VITAFORCE as a probiotic supplement.
