Living cultures – better known as probiotics – help support a healthy gut. They travel through the intestines and repopulate the gut with beneficial microbes that help to break down food and eliminate toxins.
At Microbz, we ferment our live cultures with organic juices, herbs and minerals providing a rich source of antioxidants. These extra ingredients are the lunchbox for the microbes, feeding them what they need to maintain your health.
Herbal therapies have been used for thousands of years and use plants or plant extracts to maintain health. They promote healing, provide the body with antioxidants and anti-inflammatories and support the immune system. They work best in synergy with other herbs and minerals which maximises their health benefits and enhances general health and wellbeing.
Some of the herbs in our Bio-Live are:
Maca: boosts energy, reduces blood pressure and improves learning and memory
Nettle leaf: rich in minerals and helps detoxify the body and promote healthy blood circulation
Hawthorn: helps with indigestion, angina and reduces high blood pressure
Olive leaf: reduces inflammation, prevents cell damage and protects the digestive system
Spirulina: packed full of vitamins and minerals and improves muscle strength
Turmeric: reduces inflammation and has antioxidant properties
Yarrow: promotes digestion and fights pathogenic bacteria and viruses
Ginger: high in gingerol, a powerful anti-inflammatory, and it has antioxidant properties
“We have finally started to notice that there is a real curative value in local herbs and remedies. In fact, we are also becoming aware that there are little or no side effects to most natural remedies, and that they are often more effective than Western medicine.”
– Anne Wilson Schaef
Minerals are important to our overall wellbeing and a deficiency can result in a weakened immune system and leave you feeling tired and depressed. There are two types of minerals that are needed for health, macro and micro minerals. Macro minerals are needed in large amounts in the body and micro minerals are only needed in small amounts (also known as trace minerals).
Some of the minerals present in our Bio-Live are:
Calcium: builds and maintains strong bones
Potassium: supports blood pressure, cardiovascular health, bone and muscle strength
Magnesium: maintains bone health, improves calcium absorption and prevents problems with the cardiovascular system and diabetes
Iron: for increased energy and athletic performance. It is also helps produce blood cells
Zinc: for hormone production, growth and repair
Iodine: makes thyroid hormones to help with the body’s metabolism and supports bone and brain development
Selenium: protects against oxidative damage and infection, cancer, thyroid problems and asthma
Molybdenum: supports the respiratory system, red blood cells and copper management
“In the human body, minerals act as catalysts, participating in enzyme systems that allow the transformation of the food and air we breathe into energy, vibrant health, and consciousness.”
– Paul Bergner, The Healing Power of Minerals.
Fermentation multiplies beneficial microbes and produces extra nutrients making Bio-Live easy to digest. Just as cabbage becomes more nutritious when it is turned into sauerkraut through lactose fermentation, the microbes in Bio-Live also ferment and boost the juices, herbs and minerals. They pre-digest the ingredients into bio available compounds that are easily absorbed into the body.
