Home / Why we think Liquid probiotics are the best

We are asked daily "How does LiveBrew work?" and also the related question "Why is LiveBrew better than other probiotics?"

LiveBrew is a combination of lots of fresh, live, and active lactobacilli and other microbes, along with the beneficial metabolites (organic acids, mostly) produced by those microbes.

The species in LiveBrew are:

Lactobacillus delbrueckii ssp. bulgaricus
Lactobacillus rhamnosus
Lactobacillus paracasei
Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Streptococcus thermophilus

Research has documented many different beneficial mechanisms of action for probiotic microbes and the organic acids produced by those microbes. These mechanisms of action affect everything from mood and anxiety, chronic disease, & skin health, to acute and chronic gut issues. Positive changes in your gut biome and gut health can provide increased energy, improved sleep, and other general benefits that emerge from improvements in the way the complex systems in your gut and body interact with each other. All of these mechanisms of action require an abundance of good bugs and the metabolites these bugs make and LiveBrew is a superior source!

Most probiotics are either freeze-dried powders or pills. These so-called "viable" microbes, which are not alive or active, are very fragile and vulnerable and do not do well moving through the acid and bile exposure in the upper GI tract. As a result, few ever wake up and get working. Further, freeze-dried cultures are very susceptible to rapid damage from exposure to air and humidity.

A live, active and healthy microbe that is properly selected (like all the microbes in LiveBrew are) can easily handle acid and bile challenges in the gut and get to work the instant they are ingested. LiveBrew combines these microbes with their beneficial metabolites to provide you with a uniquely powerful microbial tool for your good health.

Most probiotics, including freeze-dried and other liquid products, will often tout huge numbers on their labels. What they don't tell you, or if they do it is in the very fine print, is that these numbers refer only to the microbes present AT THE TIME OF MANUFACTURE. The actual numbers that you get into your gut are far, far lower than these label claims.

LiveBrew is the only probiotic on the market guaranteed to deliver a minimum of more than a billion live and active probiotic microbes in each and every dose all the way through the shelf life shown on the bottle.
