Flourish Probiotics and Postbiotics

One of the most unique aspects of Flourish probiotics is the fact that Flourish contains naturally occurring beneficial postbiotics. If you haven’t read our first blog on what postbiotics are, make sure to check that out here.

Postbiotics Come in Different Forms

Postbiotics are the beneficial byproducts of probiotics. There are many different forms of postbiotics including short-chain fatty acids, organic acids, antimicrobial peptides, polysaccharides, enzymes, vitamins B and K, amino acids, and microbial cell wall fragments. In this blog, we will focus on three specific postbiotics that occur naturally in Flourish living liquid probiotics.


Flourish Probiotics Contain Naturally Occurring Postbiotics!

In a world where probiotic products pop up left and right, it can be overwhelming trying to decide which one to choose. There are a few factors that make Flourish probiotics unlike the majority of probiotics on the market. Flourish probiotics are never freeze-dried, allowing them to continue to thrive in their most natural liquid environment. Because this broad ecosystem of 11 different probiotic strains from 5 genera is allowed to thrive in its natural element, postbiotics can naturally form!

Third-Party Testing

At Entegro Health, third-party testing is of the utmost importance for maintaining a quality product you can trust. Not only do we test every single batch for all of our living strains and their colony-forming units (CFUs), but we also test for things like postbiotics! We are thrilled to talk about some of the main postbiotics that occur naturally in Flourish probiotics.Postbiotics

Lactic Acid

Lactic acid plays a pivotal role in promoting gut health and overall well-being. In the context of gut health, lactic acid can help maintain a favorable pH environment. Furthermore, a favorable pH environment is crucial for the growth of beneficial bacteria and inhibiting the proliferation of harmful pathogens. Additionally, lactic acid has been linked to improved digestion, enhanced nutrient absorption, and even bolstered immune function.

Acetic Acid

Acetic acid, known for its tangy flavor and pungent aroma, is not just a staple in salad dressings and pickles. It’s also a powerhouse postbiotic with a myriad of health benefits! As a postbiotic, acetic acid contributes to the maintenance of an overall healthy gut microbiome balance similar to the way lactic acid does. Furthermore, its consumption has been associated with a range of health perks. These can include improved digestion, stabilized blood sugar levels, and even weight management support.

Aspartic Acid

Aspartic acid, a non-essential amino acid, serves various crucial functions in the human body, contributing to overall health and well-being. It plays a crucial role in protein synthesis, serving as a building block for the formation of proteins essential for muscle repair, growth, and overall tissue maintenance.wellbeing

Moreover, this versatile amino acid acts as a precursor for the synthesis of neurotransmitters like aspartate and norepinephrine, facilitating communication between nerve cells and supporting cognitive function and mood regulation. Additionally, aspartic acid is involved in the urea cycle, aiding in the detoxification of ammonia and promoting kidney health. With its multifaceted roles in metabolism, neurotransmission, and detoxification, aspartic acid exemplifies the diverse and profound impact that postbiotics can have on human physiology and well-being.
