Nexba’s Smart and Robust Live Cultures

Nexba’s Smart and Robust Live Cultures

by Sarah Spence

Not all probiotics are created equal; so how do you know which is the best probiotic to take? Well, we’ve made it easy for you. Nexba’s probiotic is a triple threat - smart, robust, and when consumed in Nexba Kombucha and Probiotix range - dead-set delicious.

But we’re getting ahead of ourselves.

Before we tell you too much about what makes Nexba’s probiotics so special, let’s start with the basics on gut health.

Happy gut, happy life

Your stomach, colon and intestines are home to more than 100 trillion tiny living bacteria. This bacteria helps you digest food efficiently, extracting all the good stuff so it can be absorbed into your system.

Healthy gut bacteria synthesise vitamins, convert fibre into short-chain fatty acids, and support your immune system. They also help destroy harmful bacteria and other nasty microorganisms.

A gut that has too few good bacteria, and too much harmful bacteria, is not a happy gut.

An imbalance in gut bacteria, or a lack of diversity in the type of bacteria in the gut, can lead to weight gain, insulin resistance, inflammation in your body’s systems, bowel disease and even colorectal cancer. Yikes!

That’s where the live cultures come in

Probiotics are live microorganisms that are naturally present in some fermented foods like sauerkraut, kefir, yoghurt, and (you guessed it!) kombucha. They can also be taken as supplements.

Probiotics help boost the number of healthy bacteria living in your gut which can lead to a healthier digestive and immune system.

Are all live cultures the same?

That would be making things easy! Just like there are hundreds of types of bacteria living in your gut all doing their own thing, there are also loads of different types of live cultures.

And each type, or strain, has its own unique qualities and benefits. But they are certainly NOT all created equal.

So, what’s so special about Nexba’s live cultures?

For you to really get the health benefits from any live cultures you take, it needs to make it all the way to your intestines and colon alive. The problem with most live cultures is they can be a little, well, delicate. Your stomach acid can go to town on them and not much ends up making it to your actual gut.

But! Nexba’s probiotic isn’t like most live cultures.

We use our superstar strain of smart and robust live culture, Bacillus Coagulans, that are encased in a hard protein-like shell. This shell means the live microorganisms inside can survive the harsh PH levels and gastric juices in your stomach. So, they make it to your intestines and colon intact.

In fact, the probiotics in our kombucha and kefir are so robust you don’t even have to keep them in the fridge! Bonus!

Kombucha Scoby

85% of the live cultures in Nexba Kombucha make it to your gut alive

Our probiotics aren’t just for show. Unlike other kombuchas on the market, Nexba Kombucha has a real deal CFU (colony forming unit) measure of 500 MILLION per 330ml bottle.

Chock full of health-giving, research-backed magic

Don’t just take our word for it. Even the people in the white coats think this stuff is out-of-this-world amazing. The research is clear… Bacillus Coagulans is chock full of health-giving magic. So much so, it’s been found to scientifically:

Improve gut health

  • Improve gut health (1,2,3,4,5,)
  • Improve blood insulin levels (6)
  • Improve cholesterol (7)
  • Assist diabetes (8,9,10,11,12, 13)
  • Enhance muscle recovery (14, 15, 16)
  • Improve patient ability to walk further with arthritis (17,18,19)
  • Boost immunity (20,21,22)
  • Potentially improve feeding intolerance in infants (23)
  • Reduce abdominal pain and GI issues (24,25,26)
  • Improve constipation (27,28)
  • Improve Gastro-Intestinal inflammation (29, 30)
  • Potentially assist with symptoms of IBS.

But wait, there’s more!

No, Nexba’s smart and robust live culture doesn’t come with its own set of steak knives. But combine it with oolong tea, as with our kombucha range, and something even amazing-er happens.

Place a kombucha culture, or SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeasts), in sweetened oolong tea and it will turn that tea into a sugar-free bowl full of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and health-giving organic acids.

As it digests the sugar, the SCOBY produces a range of organic acids like glucuronic acid, gluconic acid, lactic acid, acetic acid, butyric acid, malic acid and usnic acid; vitamins, particularly B vitamins and vitamin C; as well as amino acids, enzymes.

And let’s not forget the benefits that come from the brewed oolong tea alone which contains (approx.):

  • Fluoride: 5–24% of the RDI (Recommended Daily Intake for a human adult)
  • Manganese: 26% of the RDI
  • Potassium: 1% of the RDI
  • Sodium: 1% of the RDI
  • Magnesium: 1% of the RDI
  • Niacin: 1% of the RDI

As well as amino acids, like theanine and antioxidants (known as tea polyphenols) like theaflavins, thearubigins and EGCG.

Phew! That’s a whole lot of body-loving, health-giving magic right there.

The World Health Organisation recommends limiting ourselves to no more than 6 teaspoons of sugar per day. However, many of us eat (and drink) much, much more - and it ain’t great for our health. In fact, sugar has been linked to some of the most common health problems of our times.
