Did you know that the Egyptians fed garlic to workers building the pyramids, to help their strength and production?
Do you ever wonder who discovered Bifidobacterium infantis and why it is an important microbe for babies and children
And what's the big buzz about turmeric? Why is it so highly recommended?
You can find answers to these questions and so much more in our microbzpedia - with everything you want to know about the history and basic elements of the microbes, herbs and minerals we put into our microbz probiotic food supplements.
For us, it is important to be totally transparent about what is in our unique fermented probiotics. We know that our customers value natural products and microbz (previously Bio-Live) is that: natural. And here is our proof.
Natural and herbal medicines typically originate in ancient cultures - like this one from Indonesia, which have for centuries relied on traditional ways of meeting their healthcare needs. And today the medicinal use of plants to treat disease and enhance general health and wellbeing is more popular than ever.
At microbz, we combine ancient herbal wisdom with new biological research and technology that puts powerful microbes right at the centre of our immunity, our health and our wellbeing.
Diversity, abundance and generosity are in nature; these qualities are also in every brew. We know that every microbiome is unique, and we trust that the microbes will help the body access what nutrients it needs from the rich combinations of added herbs and minerals. Anything the body doesn't require, it allows to pass through the digestive process.
Different microbes and herbs act on different systems of the body. For instance:
- Echinacea is a flowering plant frequently used to treat and prevent the common cold. Research is limited, but it may reduce your risk of catching a cold by up to 20%.
- Saccharomyces boulardii is used for treating and preventing diarrhea, including infectious types such as rotaviral diarrhea in children, diarrhea caused by gastrointestinal (GI) take-over by 'bad' bacteria in adults, traveler's diarrhea and diarrhea caused by the use of antibiotics.
- Ginger contains several active plant compounds and may treat a variety of conditions, although it's best known for relieving nausea.
