Probiotics are the ‘good’ bacteria that outcompete ‘bad’ bacteria in the gut and help establish a healthy microbiome.
They are naturally present in fermented foods such as yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, etc. However, not all foods labeled as probiotics on the market have proven health benefits.
Potential Benefits of Probiotics
1. Supports digestions and absorption of nutrients.
2. Supports immune system.
3. Makes vitamins and nutrients we need that our bodies cannot make.
4. Can help reduce allergies.
We add 6 live and active cultures to our milk which is then perfectly fermented until there are over a billion cultures per serving.
Mixmi is tested for Live & Active cultures using the International Dairy Foods Association testing methods and standards.
Live and active cultures
The Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis, BB-12® strain is the most documented Bifidobacterium in the world. The BB-12® strain has been described in around 400 scientific publications and supported by more than 200 publications describing studies in humans. Through scientific investigation, BB-12® has been associated with benefits in the areas of gastrointestinal health and immune health. The BB-12® strain has been tested in a range of people, from preterm babies to the elderly, and across several health areas.

Isolated in the 1890's by the Russian Llya Metchnikoff who was the first to research and show that L. acidophilus plays an important role in our digestion. Research in recent decades has indicated that supplementing with L. acidophilus can aid our digestion and also help treat diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and leaky gut syndrome. It may also reduce lactose intolerance and increase our absorption of calcium and B vitamins. L. acidophilus may even improve appetite.

L. bulgaricus is a beneficial bacteria found in the digestive tract of mammals.
L. Bulgaricus is one of the first strains ever studied. The Russian Nobel Prize winner, Ilya Mechnikov, first isolated Lactobacillus Bulgaricus around 1882 when he discovered the bacteria's role in beneficial digestion. Even though L. bulgaricus is not considered a probiotic in the United States, it has been studied and shown to have health benefits.
S. thermophilus is a powerful culture that is often found in the colon and can have digestive, immunity and other health benefits.
S. thermophilus is commonly used to make cheeses and yogurts. This culture also produces lactase which can help people digest milk more efficiently.
This culture also produces antibiotic chemicals which can help to prevent infection from pneumonia and C. difficile. It can also help prevent ulcers.
