Why Prebiotics & Probiotics
Every day our gut bacteria is compromised due to poor dietary habits and lifestyle factors such as pesticides, chlorine, fluoride, pollution, stress, vaccinations and antibiotics. When digestion is not good our ability to absorb vital nutrients, withstand disease and concentrate is also jeopardized.
What Are Prebiotics?
Prebiotics are food components that give the beneficial bacteria (i.e. probiotics) nourishment and thus a chance to grow and flourish. Our prebiotic levels can be naturally boosted by eating lots of fruit and vegetables, however if digestion is not optimal our ability to absorb these vital nutrients does not happen—in comes probiotics!
What Are Probiotics?
Consider that right from the moment we are born, the human body becomes a host for other microorganisms. This includes the beneficial bacteria in our intestinal tracts, simply called probiotics. These “friendly” bacteria are essential to healthy immune function and perform a number of important tasks including breaking down nutrients and keeping “harmful” bacteria in our gut in balance.
Belly Bugz are Fermented Superfoods!
All of the foods used in Belly Bugz have been through a natural, organic fermentation process using natural, organic bacteria. Because the foods are all broken down (pre-digested) they are easily absorbed. This means there is far greater chance of the nutrients, vitamins and minerals getting to your cells.
If your food is absorbed then your body can restore.
Without this happening it is impossible to be healthy. To realize just how well this happens with Belly Bugz, we advise first time user's start with only 1/8th teaspoon morning and evening for at least 2 months until your body has adjusted to receiving nutrition at this level.
How Are Belly Bugz Made?
By feeding organic food to a mother culture of good bacteria (probiotics), the food is broken down, releasing the vitamins, minerals and amino acids for easier absorption, essential for good health and aid in body repair at the cellular level.
Now, more research than ever substantiates the claim that the bacteria found in naturally fermented foods can strengthen the body’s immune system and ward off infection, not just in the intestines but body-wide.
Belly Bugz Are a Superculture
Our probiotics have been stressed to withstand heat (can survive up to 55ºC), stressed to withstand cold (can survive down to freezing) and stressed to a number of chemicals. This means these probiotics can withstand what others cannot. For example, even after opening they can be kept in a cool dark place; making them perfect for travelling and easy storage.
Belly Bugz Are Superfood
These probiotics are in their own food source, which means the good bacteria are alive and well in their own food source. They lay dormant and are activated when taken, then multiply in the millions to assist in colonising the gut with essential probiotics.

What Happens if I Take too Much?
This is an interesting question because if your body is toxic or if you are not in very good health you will notice a reaction to the foods immediately. This is why we like first time users to start with only 1/8th of a teaspoon until they adjust to having nutrition at the level available in Belly Bugz. For example, if you have not had a good diet for a long time, or if you have a compromised digestive system, you may not have been getting the goodness from food for years. To have an over-consumption of nutrition after such a long time will have effects; such as loose stools, so best to always start small and work your way up.
When is the Best Time to Take Belly Bugz?
Have some first thing in the morning after a glass of water and last thing at night. The morning one activates and the evening one assists you in going to bed with good nutrition and probiotics, to assist your body repairing whilst you sleep.
Do Belly Bugz have a Use By Date?
We love being asked this question, because unlike most probiotic supplements, Belly Bugz has an extremely long life span. Two years is posted on the label, but in truth they stay alive and vital for many years. Some old stock was tested and found the bacteria count (probiotics) had virtually the same amount of good bacteria that they had when the product was made seven years prior. That means the product was good for over seven years and what is more interesting is that the product had been sitting on a shelf in an office for all that time. So to answer this question, even product over its use by date is safe and beneficial to use.
Do I Have to Mix it in Water or Can I Mix it in Food?
In or on food, mixed in drinks or straight off a spoon. Every day we need nutrition, good bacteria and especially the benefits from pre-digested food.
