We walk and jog. We go to the gym. We watch what we eat. We
watch our stress level. All in the name of “Improved Health.” Our
heart, muscles, bones and joints…we watch over them like a newborn.
But how many of us think of our gut? Well, other than when we get
the Bathroom Blues. Our gut—filled with trillions of
bacteria—is probably the least paid-attention-to organ in our body,
yet it is one of the most important for good health. Bacteria line
our intestines to help digest our food. During digestion, some of
these bacteria help synthesize vitamins, send signals to the immune
system, produce lactic acid that can help make conditions
unsuitable for bad bacteria and, get involved in other potential
health functions that scientists are studying on an ongoing
When it comes to probiotic products one of the major
challenges is that many bacteria strains are very sensitive to heat
and some even have to be refrigerated to preserve the bacterial
integrity and quantity. The special Bacillus Coagulans strain used
in DEVA's product does not have to be refrigerated and is very
stable at room temperature.
Not all strains of Bacillus coagulans are considered
valuable because only some of them are able to survive through the
acidity of the stomach at high levels, survive in bile salts and,
grow and form colonies in the intestines. The special strain used
in our product -thanks to its very tough outer shell- is highly
resilient to the harsh conditions of the digestive tract and has a
high survival rate that enables it to colonize the gut.
100 mg of Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) are added to each
capsule as prebiotics. This sciencey, tongue-twisting word is a
type of prebiotic that helps probiotics multiply and grow stronger
in your gut. Think of prebiotics as sort of like fertilizer for
probiotics and, they could help probiotics outnumber the bad
bacteria that’s laying wake to negatively affect the balance of the
• FOS is one of the most well-known prebiotics. They are
found in artichokes, leeks, garlic, onion, wheat and chicory root.
But because it is sometimes difficult to get adequate FOS, and many
people want more FOS in their gut, supplements are now made
• FOS is a carbohydrate prebiotic. It is made out of a
short chain of fructose molecules.
• You cannot digest or absorb FOS, so it passes through
your digestive tract to the large intestine where they act as a
food source for probiotics, thus making probiotics stronger.
• FOS has been shown to stimulate certain types of the good
bacteria more than others.
Many vegans eat better and take quality supplements for
their heart, bones, joints, brain… don’t you think it’s time to
also take care of your gut?
