Our unique formula
Bio-Live: not your average probiotic
We make Bio-Live, a liquid bacterial culture also known as a probiotic.
At Microbz we take care to explore health and understand what the body and mind needs to be at their best. We know that a diversity of microbes is key to a happier, healthier microbiome, but minerals and herbs are also crucial to support the immune system, and maintain a healthy you.
That is why we ferment 15 families of beneficial microbes with organic juices, herbs, and minerals. The microbes make these anti-inflammatory and immune boosting ingredients bio-available for the body to absorb through a healthy gut lining. Bio-Live is a herbal probiotic.
Most of the herbs used in Bio-Live are anti-inflammatory and immune boosting. Inflammation is the body’s attempt to remove harmful substances and heal itself. This is useful in the case of a banged knee or a graze but can be harmful if it persists longer than necessary. Chronic inflammation has been linked to a number of diseases including some cancers and rheumatoid arthritis.

Unlike freeze-dried capsules, our range of Bio-Live cultures are alive. During the freeze-drying process microbes in capsules hibernate. When digested, these capsules are recognised as food and trigger stomach acid which attack the microbes. Those that survive need to be rehydrated in order to be re-activated. But by the time they have been re-activated most have passed through the digestive system and have missed their chance to do their job.
Food and dairy products that contain beneficial microbes also trigger digestion when they pass through the stomach. This means that when the stomach releases acid to break down food many beneficial microbes are killed.
Bio-Live is brewed to the same acidity as the stomach and is also a water-based probiotic which means that it isn’t recognised as food and doesn’t trigger digestion when it passes through the stomach. So the beneficial microbes reach the gut alive.
Free radicals are unstable molecules in our environment that can damage the cells in our bodies. This process is known as oxidation, where part of an unstable molecule attaches itself to one of the body’s cells. Oxidation makes us age, it converts healthy cells into cancerous ones, elevates blood pressure, hardens arteries, promotes inflammation and can cause infertility.
The environment we live in exacerbates oxidation through pollution and the increased use of chemical cleaning agents in the home.
Antioxidants keep us healthy by delaying or preventing free radicals from attaching to cells. Antioxidants are found in a variety of foods – and are abundant in Bio-Live – bringing health benefits by neutralising free radicals and protecting cells.
The magic of fermentation
Popular for centuries fermentation was used as a natural way to preserve food and drink before refrigeration. During the process microbes (like bacteria, yeast or fungi) convert organic matter into alcohol or acids. For example, starches in vegetables and fruit are converted into lactic acid, which is crucial for the body. This old age process is used today to produce wine, cheese, sauerkraut, yoghurt, kimchi, tempeh and kombucha.
Eating fermented foods benefits your health, especially your digestive health, because the transformation of sugars and starches enhances the beneficial microbes in food. Fermentation multiplies beneficial microbes and produces extra nutrients making Bio-Live easy to digest and extra good for you.
