Probiotics are ingested microbes that can modify intestinal microbial populations in a way that benefit the host. Probiotic cultures help humans, animals and pets .Many of the benefits are well known,These benefits include maintenance of intestinal homeostasis, competitive exclusion of pathogens, production of antimicrobial compounds, promotion of the intestinal barrier function, immune modulation and some very promising results in the area of inflammatory bowel disease.
These lactic acid-producing bacteria provide many benefits, including:
Synthesizing vitamins and increasing the bioavailability of minerals
Maintaining the mucosal barrier. Reduces untoward symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Inhibiting bacterial pathogens by producing lactic acid, hydrogen peroxide and bacteriocins
Stimulating immune function, and modulating immune system hypersensitivity.
Inhibiting Candida albicans
Our Probiotic Cultures are extremely stable due the combination of proprietary fermentation and freeze drying technology. We make Probiotic Cultures and Special Culture Blends for Human health, Animal Health and for Pet Health.
Our cultures are available as a single culture or as custom blended cultures in different concentrations in anhydrous dextrose or maltodextrin as carrier with very low water activity.
- Lactobacillus acidophilus
- Lactobacillus rhamnosus
- Lactobacillus bulgaricus
- Lactobacillus helveticus
- Lactobacillus plantarum
- Lactobacillus casei
- Lactobacillus paracasei
- Lactobacillus fermentum
- Lactobacillus salivarius
- Lactobacillus reuteri
- Lactococcus lactis
- Bifidobacterium bifidum
- Bifidobacterium longum
- Bifidobacterium infantis
- Bifidobacterium lactis
- Streptococcus thermophilus
- Streptococcus diacetilactis
- Streptococcus salivarius
- Enterococcus faecium
We also make them in a variety of phytonutrients and digestive enzymes as functional carriers instead of blending them in traditional non-functional carriers like maltodextrin or dextrose.
Besides Inulin (Fructo Oligo Saccharide), we offer a variety of carriers & phytonutrients like Blueberry powder, Mixed berry powder, Parsley powder, Okra powder, Ginger powder, Turmeric powder, Fermented soy etc.
This approach to Probiotic Culture Blends using functional carriers is a unique feature and advantage of choosing BioSource Probiotic Cultures for your application needs.
We also offer Probiotic culture blends in the Lacticeuticals™ line of probiotics:
FutureNatant contains selected inactive cell populations of Lactobacillus, Streptococcus and Bifidobacteria strains. These strains are present in the media in which they were grown. Consequently, FutureNatant is rich in healthy probiotic metabolites such as lactic acids, amino acids, folates, bacteriocines, bio-surfactants and enzymes. Research suggests that even inactive probiotic cultures and metabolites can have significant health benefits. FutureNatant is ideal for product conditions that may not support live bacteria. The probiotic strains in FutureNatant, as well as their metabolic substances, may promote healthy cell-mediated immune responses and healthy digestion.
BetaPro is a combination of healthy prebiotic Nutrim® oat bran, inulin, beet fiber and carefully chosen probiotics. The Nutrim®, beet and inulin fibers are blended to create a "matrix" for the probiotic bacteria to grow. Our in-house research has shown that Nutrim selectively stimulates growth of certain probiotics. The probiotics in BetaPro thrive due to the fiber matrix and subsequently populate the gastrointestinal tract, providing support for healthy digestion.
Premium Bulgarian Yogurt Powder:
Premium Bulgarian Yogurt Powder is made with fresh, non-fat milk and specially selected proprietary Bulgarian probiotic strains. The yogurt is naturally fermented with Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactobacillus bulgaricus lactic acid bacteria. Lactic acid bacteria are one of the most important of all microbial flora. Microbial flora imbalance has been associated with diseases such as acute gastritis, Crohn’s Disease, ulcerous colitis, food allergies and cardiovascular conditions.
Supplementation with lactic acid bacteria can play a role in regulating the digestive processes and other vital body functions.Bulgarian yogurt powder is especially significant because it has long been linked to longevity. Nobel Prize winner Ilya Mechnikov of the Paris-based Pasteur Institute found that out of 36 countries, more people lived to an age of 100 in Bulgaria than in any other country. He believed this was due in part to the benefits of a traditional Bulgarian food: home-made yogurt.
VitaPro is a combination of VitaBerry® high ORAC fruit blend, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium longum and inulin. VitaBerry delivers antioxidants from a number of fruit sources. Inulin provides a prebiotic matrix to support probiotic growth.The natural compounds found in VitaBerry and the selected probiotics strains in the blend can promote healthier responses to inflammation. The anti-adhesive activity of the berry components in VitaPro also promote urinary tract health.
CranBiotic is a blend of VitaCran® cranberry concentrate, FutureNatant™, Lactobacillus acidophilus and casei, Bifidobacterium longum, D-Mannose and inulin. CranBiotic was carefully designed to provide support for healthy urinary tract function.Studies have specifically examined cranberries for their ability to help maintain healthy urinary tract function and resist Helicobacter pylori infections. Research also links probiotics to healthy.Resistance to infection.D-mannose is an essential sugar found in CranBiotic that also plays a role in resistance to infection. As an infection develops, pathogenic bacteria like E. coli can become attached to the mucus of the urinary tract. When D-mannose is introduced, the E. coli preferably attach to the D-mannose molecules (rather than the mucosal walls of the urinary tract) and are then removed in urine.
Cold & Flu Biotic™
Cold&Flu Biotic is a blend of standardized elderberry powder, VitaBerry®, FutureNatant™, our proprietary "Biotics Vitamin C Antioxidant Blend" (Acerola Cherry Extract, quercitin, zinc ascorbate), Lactobacillus casei and helveticus and Bifidobacterium longum and infantis. Cold&Flu Biotic is designed to promote healthy resistance to cold and flu.Research has suggested that many of the components of Cold&Flu Biotic help support healthy immune response. Elderberry may specifically help relieve cold and flu symptoms and promote resistance to influenza. VitaBerry contains very high levels of fruit antioxidants that can help limit the damage caused by reactive oxygen species (ROS). FutureNatant and the individual probiotic strains support healthy resistance to infection.
OsteoBiotic is a formula that combines FruiteX-B®, standardized wild blueberry powder, oligosaccharides, Vitamin D3, and Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria probiotics strains. OsteoBiotic is designed to provide support for maintenance of healthy bones and joints.FruiteX-B calcium fructoborate is a bone and joint health ingredient that is identical to a naturallyoccurring molecule in plants. Research has shown that FruiteX-B helps maintain healthy joint comfort and flexibility, supports healthy calcium metabolism and promotes overall bone and joint health.The probiotics strains in OsteoBiotic are included due to their ability to promote healthy absorption of calcium, phosphorus, zinc and iron. Vitamin D3 studies show that it is important for managing bone-softening diseases such as osteomalacia and osteoporosis, and is vital for healthy calcium metabolism.
