Unraveling Probiotics: Savor and Absorb Through Delectable Candy-like Dosage Supplements!

May 18, 2022

In recent years, probiotics have become essential to the health and wellness conversation. These health boosters capture everyone's attention, from powders to capsules, tablets, and even the burgeoning candy-like probiotic dosage forms. But how do these various forms differ, and how should we choose between them? Allow Boncha Bio, your go-to partner in health and wellness, to guide you through the complex world of probiotics and their various dosages!

Probiotics Uncovered: The Tiny Titans of Health

Probiotics, primarily consisting of lactic acid bacteria and certain yeasts, naturally occur in our gut. They assist with digestion and alleviate symptoms such as diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, and allergies. Current research suggests that increasing gut probiotics and combining them with prebiotics can unlock long-term health benefits.

Safeguarding Probiotic CFU: The Quadruple Challenge

Maintaining the CFU (Colony Forming Units) of these live bacteria is a nuanced challenge. Various factors during production, preservation, or ingestion can threaten their survival. By choosing companies with advanced technologies, you can ensure that probiotics reach the intestines safely, function effectively, and maintain a high survival rate. Here are four critical considerations:

01  Low Water Activity

Water activity measures the amount of water available in a product. The lower the water activity, the drier the environment, and the longer the probiotics can be preserved. Ensure the water activity is below 0.25 for optimal long-term preservation.

02  Low-Temperature Manufacturing:

Probiotics are heat-sensitive, thriving below 10℃ and diminishing above 40℃. Opt for manufacturers using low-temperature processes to maximize probiotic viability.

03  Formulation Design for Better Probiotic Survival:

Probiotics must withstand stomach acid and other digestive fluids after ingestion. Encapsulation technology can protect these beneficial bacteria from being destroyed during digestion.

04  Combining with Prebiotics:

Balanced modern diets are often lacking, causing probiotics to die shortly after reaching the intestines due to lack of nutrition. As food for probiotics, prebiotics plus probiotics create a symbiotic effect in the gut, boosting immunity and inhibiting diseases like obesity, autism, and depression.

Decoding Probiotic Dosage Formulations

- Capsule Form:

Capsules are a popular probiotic form overseas. They preserve the stability of live bacteria and protect them from the digestive environment. However, most capsules on the market are non-vegetarian, which might not suit users with vegetarian needs.

- Powder Form:

Powder forms are prevalent in Taiwan. Though simple to produce and consume, the heat-sealing process during manufacturing exposes probiotics to high temperatures, potentially destroying them.

- Tablet Form:

Tablets are a common form of dietary supplement. However, the high-temperature and high-pressure production process might reduce the bioactivity of probiotics and shorten their effectiveness.

- Candy-like Form:

Despite the doubts about the effectiveness of the candy-like form, thanks to some manufacturers with mature technologies can maintain high nutrition /bioactivity probiotics. The effectiveness is equal to the market's probiotics products in capsules, powders, and other forms. These candy-like dosage forms are easy to swallow, convenient to carry, and have shown good market growth.
