    Suggested usage for daily digestive maintenance program:

    While there is no set recommended dose of probiotic, clinical studies have shown to maintain a healthy digestive tract, a probiotic with one to two million CFUs is recommended by the International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics (ISAPP).

    • Aspen Pure Probiotic - Adults take 12oz / twice daily with or without food.

Aspen Pure Probiotic Water contains 80% of these as listed below.

    Aspen Pure Probiotic Water – 12 Strains Defined

    Lactobacillus-Acidophilus

    Your body's intestinal microflora includes probiotic bacteria such as Lactobacillus Bulgaricus and Lactobacillus Acidophilus, which often work as a team to take in raw materials, both helping to sort the useful versus harmful substances that you eat. Lactobacillus also serves your internal digestive factory as an agent that converts lactose to lactase, competes with harmful bacteria for nutrients, and produces as a byproduct some helpful antibacterial substances that promote a healthy environment for the GI tract.

    Lactobacillus Rhamnosus

    Helps Fight Intestinal Tract Illnesses

    According to studies published by Goldin and Gorbach, L. rhamnosus is said to be able to survive the highly acidic conditions of the human stomach, as well as the intestinal tract. It is also believed to be bile-stable. (2) This makes the probiotic highly desirable in its ability to conquer intestinal ailments.

    Lactobacillus Salivarius

    Beneficial resident of the small intestine and mouth.

    During metabolic functions, the bacteria produce enzymes that are toxic to undesirable bacteria.

    Lactobacillus Casei

    Lactobacillus casei, more commonly referred to as L. casei, is a harmless, nonpathogenic microorganism that has been widely recognized for the attributes and properties it possesses that have been found to be beneficial to the human body. L. casei is a type of bacteria that helps protect the human body from disease and illness by restricting the growth of various types of harmful bacteria that cause infection and be detrimental to an individual's health.

    Lactobacillus Plantarum

    Along with promoting normal digestive health, Lactobacillus plantarum has been shown to be an effective treatment for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Crohn's disease, and colitis. It has the ability to destroy pathogens and to preserve critical nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants. It has also shown the rare ability to produce L. lysine, a beneficial amino acid. One of the most exciting uses for Lactobacillus plantarum involves using it to deliver therapeutic compounds and proteins to the body.

    Lactobacillus-Lactis

    L. lactis is an ideal candidate for probiotic use because it supports the function of other Lactobacillus organisms, taking on some of the general workload, thereby enabling the other probiotic agents to focus more specifically on specialty functions at which they are most effective at treating.

    Lactobacillus lactis colonizes the GI tract by inhibiting the growth and proliferation of pathogenic bacteria. This probiotic is frequently taken by those diagnosed with chronic Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) like ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s Disease.

    Bifidobacterium Bifidum

    Among the most ferocious warriors in this army of advantageous microbes is a type of probiotic called bifidobacterium bifidum, which inhabits the colon and vagina. Its job is to maintain the micro flora balance within the intestines, control the increase of detrimental bacteria, bolster the immune system, and aid in the digestive process.

    Bacillus-Lactis

    Bifidobacterium Lactis is a very powerful transient probiotic bacteria. Scientific studies have proven that B. Lactis enhances immunity, fights tumor growth, improves digestion and can lower cholesterol.

    B. animalis/lactis inhabit the intestines & the colon in great numbers. Generally, their job is to break down body waste & aid in the absorption of various vitamins & minerals

    Bacillus-Infantis

    When friendly probiotics like Bifidobacterium infantis line your intestines, they break down fiber and sugars that lead to bloating, gas, and aggravate conditions like IBS. [2] And studies have shown that men and women with balanced levels of probiotic bacteria can focus and concentrate better and enjoy stronger bones, normal blood sugar, fewer allergies, and better cardiovascular health.

    B-Breve

    The presence of B breve appears to inhibit E coli. B breve is also present in the vagina, where it helps to inhibit overproduction of candida albicans, also known as the primary cause of yeast infections in women.

    B-Longum

    Bifidobacterium Longum has been described as one of the most significant and important types of “good” bacteria that inhabits the human body. Bifidobacterium longum or B. longum is “very helpful because it maintains a normal digestive tract, inhibits the growth of harmful bacteria, and also boosts the immune system.”

    Streptococcus Thermophilus

    As long ago as 1907, when Russian biologist and Nobel Prize winner Elie Metchnikoff wrote about longevity research in his book The Prolongation of Life, the bacterial strain Streptococcus thermophilus was known to promote gastrointestinal health. Streptococcus thermophilus, along with Lactobacillus bulgaricus, soon became the starter strains used to make yogurt. Today, these two probiotics are still used in the production of true yogurt.
