Here at Gaia Herbs, we believe a healthy gut and overall digestive well-being are things to strive for. Our new full spectrum postbiotics line (made with organic fermented superfoods) might be the ticket to elevating your digestive health.

The digestive tract is ground zero for immune, metabolic, and digestive health and the foundation of overall well-being. Our bodies have evolved alongside beneficial bacteria found in fermented foods for centuries. Incorporating a fermented postbiotic into your routine provides your gut health with a solid foundation.REF#3575 REF#3576

That said, we combined juice from traditional fermented foods with convenience (zero refrigeration needed) to bring you digestive capsules packed with three billion postbiotic cells for digestive health support.*

But before we touch on the details of this incredible new line, let's break down what prebiotics, probiotics, and postbiotics are and how they benefit you.

Understanding the Basics: Prebiotics, Probiotics, and Postbiotics

Just like pre- and probiotics, postbiotics work behind the scenes to support our gut health.

  • Prebiotics: Nourishing beneficial bacteria, fueling the fermentation process in the gut.
  • Probiotics: The living microorganisms that conduct fermentation.
  • Postbiotics: Beneficial byproducts produced by probiotics during fermentation.

Learn more about the differences of pre, pro, and postbiotics. 

6 Benefits of Postbiotics

Early research indicates that the health benefits associated with prebiotics and probiotics are mainly due to postbiotics production.

Postbiotics play a crucial role in 

  • Regulating immune health
  • Maintaining a balanced microbiome
  • Supporting a healthy inflammatory response
  • Encouraging regularity
  • Enhancing nutrient absorption
  • Contributing to cardiovascular health

Comparisons: Postbiotics vs. Fermented Foods and Other Products

Each two-capsule serving found in our postbiotic supplements provides the equivalent amount of wild-type inactivated lactic acid bacteria and lactic acid from sauerkraut juice found in two tablespoons of traditionally fermented sauerkraut. Unlike live fermented foods, our postbiotics offer convenience without the potential gassiness associated with larger quantities.

Taking postbiotics directly, instead of relying solely on prebiotics and probiotics, can allow for more efficient absorption of health benefits. Practical advantages include stability, longer shelf life, no need for refrigeration, and consistent levels of beneficial compounds.
