Vibrant Biome Probiotics Hawaiin Dark Chocolate Bar

96 Billion CFU per bar. Delicious, Potent Sporebiotic Supplement

 

The background story of the most exclusive and therapeutic chocolate on Earth:
As some of you know, Bronwyn and I have spent years developing relationships with some of the most unique farmers or producers of rare and potent ingredients. 

So naturally I want to tell you the great story about our all-time favorite Cacao Farm and Chocolate Maker on the Big Island of Hawaii.

First some context. We go out of our way to check out leading-edge farms whenever possible. There's a dedicated subset of farmers that are leading the way forward with fantastic "beyond organic" practices.

We also go out of our way to check out farmers markets on the off-chance we'll discover a leading-edge farmer, herbalist, or other great soul. Full disclosure: We troll farmers markets like we're some kind of weird undercover cops because we're only interested in the cream of the crop.

We've gotten to the point where we can tell who is ultra-passionate and almost crazy about quality, before we even begin a conversation. 

A Hidden Treasure
On a whim, we decided to stop by a random farmers market on our way to something else. After zipping past most of the booths, we approached a nondescript booth staffed by a couple and their daughter that my "eagle eyes" noticed had mangoes that looked amazing considering it was the very end of mango season.

We complemented them on their surprisingly great mangoes at the tail end of the season. As we waited while they chose some for us, we saw some basic looking chocolate bars. 

I'm highly skeptical of most chocolate these days for a bunch of reasons. Some of my reasons to shun most chocolate might be too fanatical. But as someone who has sourced thousands of pounds of cacao over the last 9 years, let's just say I'm ridiculously careful about anything chocolate.

So we asked the couple about their chocolate and at first they were so humble and low-key (truly rural Hawaii types) that I assumed it was going to be so-so. But the more questions we asked the more they shared their passion. 

For example, we found out that their small orchard of 60 cacao trees are forty years old and still producing abundantly! We asked all the usual questions about their growing and processing methods, and found out that they are part of the tiny group of small farms that are utilizing "beyond organic" standards. 

Then we started tasting their chocolate. As you probably guessed already, it was truly superb!

At this moment we knew that they were not just good at growing and harvesting cacao. This couple are the truly rare cacao farmers that are well beyond the new hype about "Bean to Bar." These people are some of the incredibly rare "Tree to Bar" creators.

Wine and Chocolate Nerd Moment: The Keffer family and their humble-looking chocolate are essentially a Hawaii parallel to the rare small vineyards that nobody knows about that are making superb small-batch wines from old vines. And this exceptional wine only goes to friends and family. And this rare wine would sell for at least $400 a bottle if it were even for sale. This chocolate is exactly like this type of wine. Except that Sarvaa has an exclusive arrangement with the Keffer family to make us some small batches of their chocolate that includes our proprietary blend of Sporebiotic Probiotics!

Why is This Chocolate Unique?

This rare chocolate we're describing is truly "Tree to Bar" chocolate. (Technically you could even call it "Soil to Bar Chocolate" given how great the volcanic soil is for growing cacao trees.)

Here are their steps to make exceptional chocolate:

  1. Rain water, soil nutrients, and sunshine creating excellent cacao pods.
  2. Cacao beans go into a small-batch fermentation process. (Very important for the best flavor profiles.)
  3. Slow roasting, not too hot, but not raw either.
  4. Small-batch stone grinding overnight.
  5. Stone grinding coconut sugar, and their own farm's vanilla beans.
  6. Chocolate tempering with their own home-made "cacao butter silk."

Back to the Story
We found out that the wife is native Hawaiian and uses her amazing skills to care for the trees and plants on the farm in the spirit of Kahuna. And we found out the husband has an engineering degree and applies his skills to everything from soil science to the making his own Cacao Butter Silk for the final Chocolate tempering step. 

Chocolate Geek Moment: Did you know that the final step to making great chocolate is called "tempering"? To temper chocolate you use a small amount of special Cacao Butter that has been kept at an exact warm temperature (usually 96 degrees) all night long to create a very high percentage of Type-5 cacao crystals.

The Farm Tour Ah-Ha Moment: We eventually toured their farm (which by the way is in the Kona Coffee growing belt of the famous Kona Coast). As we stood under the canopy of the cacao trees and broke open a cacao pod, Bronwyn and I both had the same "Ah Ha Moment."

With our feet nestled in seven inches of cacao tree leaves on the ground, our hearts knew that we simply had to collaborate with these great people in some way. Then as we toured their tiny "Chocolate Making Room" (you can't call it a factory when it's the size of an average home kitchen) our minds began to catch up with our hearts. 

It began to dawn on us that something more was developing that could possibly benefit Sarvaa customers like you.

(Fun Fact: Hawaiian Cacao is so rare that it comprises only a quarter of 1% of worldwide cacao production. And Kona Cacao is another fraction of the Hawaiian cacao market.)

Later as we drove away from the farm, we brainstormed how we could co-create with the Keffers and Sarvaa. Luckily we bought plenty of the their dark chocolate and I started making tiny batches of Probiotic Chocolate at home using Sarvaa's Vibrant Biome probiotic powder to experiment with taste and potency. 

Bronwyn happens to be what's known as a "Super Taster." She has such a great palate for tasting my test batches. And her talent is especially important for this project, since we want to achieve the right balance of delicious taste and maximum probiotics potency.

Good News for You
As many of you know, we normally only sell our Sporebiotic Probiotic powders in bulk at wholesale prices. Most of you really appreciate this. The only negative feedback we get from about 20% of our customers is that they don't like what they perceive is a yeasty, bleu cheese taste. (Luckily most of the others really like how alive these probiotics taste.)

So we've been wanting to explore this question: What is the absolute maximum amount of probiotics we can include in chocolate without the taste getting too strange? We think we've nailed the answer.

Because we're starting with some of the rarest and finest chocolate in the world, we're able to include a lot of probiotics into each bar without the taste getting weird. To be exact: 96 billion CFU per two ounce bar of chocolate!

Since there are 12 small rectangle subsections in each bar, there will be 12 servings of 8 billion CFU in each bar. At $20 per bar, you get world-class chocolate and world-class probiotics at a down-to-earth price.

If you're skeptical that it will taste okay, we don't blame you. But we hope you'll give it a try. Especially if you have a finicky eater in your house, then this may be the only way to get Sporebiotic probiotics into their gut microbiome.

Limited Time Experiment
Because of warmer temperatures in most of the US during the Summer that could melt chocolate during transport, we'll only be offering these bars as an experiment to get your feedback until sometime in the Spring.

Why Should I Take a Probiotic?

Beneficial Bacteria (a.k.a. 'Pro'-biotics) are absolutely essential to your health. They're part of the community of micro-organisms in your gut and on your body known as your microbiome. They work minute by minute to boost your immune system, defend you from harmful bacteria and viruses, and help to heal disease, chronic inflammation, food sensitivities, and even seasonal allergies.

If your microbiome is weakened or compromised by stress, sleeplessness, and a poor diet the beneficial probiotic bacteria in your gut can weaken and be kicked out by invasive, disease promoting bacteria and yeasts. It's science-heavy stuff, but it's so important to understand how much your microbiome affects your quality of life. 

Every bite of healthy food you eat shapes your microbiome by supporting the biosphere in your gut so beneficial bacteria can grow and thrive. Supporting the beneficial bacteria promotes your long-term health and happiness by preventing disease and imbalance and encouraging your body to grow healthy and happy cells. That's right, probiotics encourage your body to express healthy versions of your genetics (more on this below). This process can be supported and potently boosted by taking a potent probiotic like Vibrant Biome-20.

Beneficial Probiotic Bacteria

  • Help to digest, assimilate, and create micronutrients.
  • Regulate your cellular health by promoting healthy gene expression (Epigenetics).
  • Play a fundamental role in the reversal and prevention of chronic and acute disease.
  • Create helpful natural chemicals and hormones that affect your mood, tonify your nervous system, and affect your sleep and stress response!
  • Process waste and help to detox your body.

If the beneficial bacteria in your gut become imbalanced, your health and quality of life can suffer. Another way of looking at it is that if you are already suffering, healing your gut can heal your body and drastically upgrade your quality of life! There is growing evidence that upgrading your microbiome can even reverse serious disease.

For decades mainstream science has argued that your inherited genetics drive the fate of your health, but now that conversation is shifting and your microbiome is proving to be the driving conscious mechanism behind your health. This means that your health is an expression of your lifestyle and habits, and not some static inevitability you're stuck with because of whatever genetics your parents handed down to you. Building a vibrant and healthy microbiome can be a hugely empowering milestone in your journey to health, and Vibrant Biome Probiotics is here to help.

Why are probiotics expensive?

If your probiotic is mostly made up of the typical "Lacto strains" like Lactobacillus acidopholis, then the price should be very low.

However any probiotic that is primarily made up of rare, higher-potency Spore-forming bacteria (a.k.a. Sporebiotics) such as Bacillus Subtilis and Coagulans, then the costs will naturally be higher. This is why we only offer them in bulk, and at wholesale prices to you.

Why are "Sporebiotics" More Expensive?

1. Spore-forming bacteria are significantly more expensive to cultivate and harvest than regular probiotics.

2. Spore-forming probiotics are typically have a slower growth rate since they're larger, more advanced, and more complex micro-organisms than most beneficial bacteria.

Always compare Sporebiotics to Sporebiotics! Shop around and you'll see that other sporebiotic blends on the market are typically 3-7 times as expensive as Sarvaa Vibrant Biome Probiotics.

Sarvaa Vibrant Biome Probiotics are certified to be the most potent and affordable Sporebiotic probiotics on the market. So don't let a first glance at the price trick you.

Vibrant Biome Probiotics Hawaiin Chocolate Bar contains:

  • 12 servings of 8 Billion Sporebiotics = 96 Billion CFU per 2 ounce bar.
  •  Only cost 20 cents per 1 Billion CFUs.

Why are Sporebiotics Better for Me?

A. Spore-forming bacteria have a 90% survival rate in stomach acids, and actually proliferate in your lower digestive tract where you need them.

B. Sporebiotics are the only probiotic strains that are proven to be shelf stable (does NOT require refrigeration).

C. Sporebiotics are the only probiotics to take during a round of antibiotics because SFU's survive the antibiotics and arrive alive in your lower intestines.

This is why we only offer Sporebiotic probiotics.

"In many ways, your gut bacteria are as vast and mysterious as the Milky Way. About 100 trillion bacteria, both good and bad, live inside your digestive system. Collectively, they're known as the gut microbiota. Science has begun to look more closely at how this enormous system of organisms influences—and even improves—health conditions, from heart disease to arthritis to cancer. But understanding how the gut microbiota works, and how you may benefit, can be daunting. This is a new frontier of medicine, and many are looking at the gut microbiota as an additional organ system. It's most important to the health of our gastrointestinal system, but may have even more far-reaching effects on our well-being."

~ Dr. Elizabeth Hohmann of the infectious Diseases Division at Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital

What are Sporebiotic Probiotics?

Sporebiotics are Soil Based Organisms that evolved over time to survive direct sunlight, severe temperature changes, and even drought. To make this possible, sporebiotics evolved a shell to protect themselves. Just as their shell helps them survive the elements, it helps them survive your stomach acid, transportation, and be shelf stable for decades. Since humans have been interacting with these Sporebiotics for thousands of years (because they are in the soil we cultivate our food in and on the plants we eat), sporebiotics like the bacillus strains have become a familiar and essential part of our microbiome. 

  • Sporebiotics are beneficial bacteria that have evolved over many centuries to produce "bacteria seeds" that have a protective shell around them.
  • These shells help the bacteria survive intense heat and pressure, survive your stomach acid, and reach your lower gastrointestinal (GI) tract, where they're really needed.
  • Sporebiotics are some of the most potent good bacteria due to their robust nature.
  • They are not fungus; "Spore" is the proper term biologists use to describe the "bacteria seed".
  • Sporebiotics arrive alive! No refrigeration is needed! They're fully viable for over ten years without refrigeration.
  • Sporebiotics are Bacillus strains, and are ancient, highly evolved Soil Based Organisms (SBOs).
  • Sporebiotic strains are considered "leader strains" that oversee the healthy functioning of your microbiome by guiding the processes of other microflora.

How Sporebiotic Probiotics Work

Inside the protection of their outer shell, Sporebiotics enter the body and pass through the stomach acid with a 98% survival rating. They move to your lower digestive tract and then hatch from the shell to proliferate where they are needed in your gut. They love to help you digest the insoluble fibers found in fruits and vegetables. As they digest, dissolve, and ferment the insoluble fibers they create many beneficial nutrients, chemicals, hormones, and short chain fatty acids that work with your immune system, your cells, your nervous system, and organs like your brain to create a balanced environment where healthy human cells can grow and thrive.

Further, these beneficial chemical byproducts aid all of the human cells in your body in expressing healthy genetic makeups! This means that beneficial bacteria like the Sporebiotic strains from the Bacillus family create an environment in your gut that supports your body in creating healthy DNA expression to build healthy, disease preventing/resistant cells. This is how these amazing beneficial Sporebiotics help your body to prevent imbalance, chronic inflammation, and chronic/acute disease.

Vibrant Biome Probiotics Contain the Strongest  & Most Effective Probiotic Strains Available

Sporebiotics are more expensive to produce, so most companies cut corners and use them in very tiny amounts to increase their profit. But since Sarvaa runs more like a non-profit than a typical supplement company, we're setting the new standard for affordability of Sporebiotic-rich formulations of probiotics.

What's Inside Vibrant Biome Sporebiotics Chocolate bars:

  • Higher potency probiotics: 96 billion live microflora per bar, up to 12 servings of 8 billion CFU
  • 11 of the most effective probiotic strains.
  • They arrive alive, no refrigeration needed. Safely store in temperatures up to 92 degrees.
  • Leading-edge formula with more sporebiotics than any other formula available.

Vibrant Biome Probiotics- Potency Statistics

  • 96 billion live beneficial bacteria per bar.
  • 90 times the number of CFU  found in most bars.

"Honestly, at first I was skeptical. During my 27 years of practice, I've seen so much hype in the supplement realm that I'm very leery of hype vs substance. Luckily, Sarvaa Probiotics are the best I've seen in the last ten years, which has been a period of rapid progress in probiotic research. They're 700 percent better potency than the next best clinical probiotic on the market. And I appreciate the fact that the first three ingredients are Sporebiotic strains. The other strains are excellent, too. Now that I've been using them myself, and seeing such excellent results with my patients, I'm more convinced than ever."

Sporebiotic Probiotics and Your Microbiome 

What is Your Microbiome?

Your Microbiome is a community of trillions of microflora that are:

    1. Producing nutrients, vitamins, enzymes, and short-chain fatty acids for you
    2. Digesting and assimilating the foods you put in your body.
    3. Detoxing you and protecting you from diseases (fortifying your Immune System)

This active community in your gut, and throughout your body, responds directly to how you feed it. You have a symbiotic relationship with the bacteria and other flora within you.

When you eat clean organic foods, fermented foods, and whole foods, you are supporting trillions of micro-beings who in turn create numerous benefits for you.

When you eat processed foods, non-organic and GMO foods, and refined foods, the good bacteria in your gut begin to die off and bad bacteria, unwanted yeasts and fungi start to take over...and that's when inflammation and diseases start to set in. 

Your Microbiome also contains the majority of your genetic coding. How you feed your Microbiome directly impacts your genetics on a daily basis. Learn more about Epigenetics below.

Functional Medicine and Your Microbiome

Probiotics are no longer in the realm of just Naturopathic Doctors. Every year, hundreds of MDs who are frustrated that their patients are not getting better with pharmaceuticals are leaving the drugs behind and retraining in holistic approaches. Science is rediscovering that developing a "healthy gut" is one of the most potent methods for obtaining and sustaining optimal health. This is because by actually healing your gut you are healing the underlying causes of hundreds of maladies. The Human Microbiome is now at the forefront of scientific research. 

Dr. William Cole says, "The microbiome is home to around 80 percent of your immune system, and 95 percent of your 'happy' neurotransmitter, serotonin. Often called your 'second brain,' it helps control your mood, weight and hormones."

Your "Second" Brain

By now you may have heard that your body has more cells of microflora in your gut than the rest of your body combined. Think about that. As each cell plays an important role in our vitality, it's not a matter of, "It would be nice to have good gut flora." It's an absolute necessity.

How is this possible? Microbiome cells are much smaller than other cells in size. Still, the experts tell us that we have between three to five pounds of microflora in our gut. Amazing, considering that your heart weighs about one pound, and your brain weighs approximately three pounds. So why not deepen your commitment to the health of your "second" brain, your community of crucial microflora?

microbiome-epigenetics.jpg

Probiotics and Epigenetics

Since the beginning of the 21st century, the human microbiome has been studied more intensely than ever. We're discovering that much more of your genetic material is in your gut rather than in the inherent, static DNA of the rest of your cells. Inherited DNA is no longer the sole key to understanding health and disease. This is so important! What you eat, and how you feed your microbiome is crucial to how your body evolves over the years. If you continue to serve sugars and processed food to your gut, your bad bacteria will thrive and that information gets passed along to all of the cells in your body. 

By consuming advanced probiotics and eating a diet that helps them thrive, you're effectively allowing your good bacteria to thrive, and therefore passing along healthy data to the rest of your body's cells. Even if you have a genetic leaning towards a certain disease, by taking great care of your microbiome, you can possibly delay or completely mitigate your cells' tendency to form disease. This is the power of epigenetics: to evolve your genetic expression towards vibrant health and longevity.

Your Microbiome and Your Immunity

Probiotics are one of the most effective and simple ways for keeping your body healthy. According to Johns Hopkins researchers, 80 percent of your immune system lives in your digestive tract. Keeping your gut full of beneficial bacteria ensures that you will be at your best health! Good bacteria in your digestive system helps you to digest food, absorb nutrients, and boost your immune system, making probiotics one of your best tools for reaching and maintaining thriving health.

Benefits of Healthy Gut Bacteria

There are over a hundred important reasons why you want a vibrant Microbiome (in other words, vibrant GI Tract microflora)! But let's look at just a few of the benefits you'll reap from a healthy gut: 

    1. Increased Immune Response
    2. Better Stamina
    3. Improved Mood
    4. Reduced Cravings
    5. Better Sleep
    6. Less Joint Stiffness
    7. Decreased Inflammation
    8. Healthy Hormone Balance
    9. Healthy Weight Management
    10. Fewer Allergies
    11. Avoid numerous diseases that would cost you thousands of dollars and a great deal of pain and suffering.

Criteria of the Best Probiotics

Whether you're purchasing Sarvaa's Vibrant Biome Probiotics or another brand, make sure that your probiotics contain at least 10 different research-proven probiotic strains, and that they're delivering at least 10 billion Colony Forming Units (CFU) per serving.

See if they contain at least three strains of Sporebiotics, i.e. Bacillus Subtilis, Bacillus Coagulans, etc. and that they're shelf stable and temperature resistant.

It's always a plus if they include a prebiotic "food" to ensure the effectiveness of the beneficial bacteria, and don't have allergens such as dairy, soy, wheat or corn starch. 

"Since I work in the supplements section of a big health food store and get a nice discount on my supplements, I really didn't want to spend $100 on your probiotics. But everything I've gotten from you these past few years has been the best. And these are the same! You did it again! I truly feel more vibrant with these than the dozens of others I've used. Thanks for taking the time to make such great stuff. And it seems like you do it with genuine love and kindness."

How Do I Use Vibrant Biome Probiotics?

Normal Daily Use: There are 12 small sections in each bar. Therefore you have the option of taking one section (8 billion CFU) per day. 

Stronger Therapeutic Use: 1/4 to 1/2 bar each day. 

Helpful Tips: Studies show that eating foods that contain good quality pre-biotics greatly enhances the ability of probiotics to do their job and populate your gut with the best possible beneficial bacteria. Please do your best to consume plenty of both raw and cooked vegetables daily. Also, try to eat some raw fruits with the lowest sugar content possible. For instance, do not eat fully ripe bananas, but eat them as green as you possibly can. And avoid large amounts of highly ripe mangoes and pineapples during any periods of "therapeutic doses" of probiotics when possible. 

Additional Tips:

Be kind to yourself. Each one of us is an individual with different bodily needs. The pace at which you consume probiotics may be very different from the person standing next to you. If you find that consuming probiotics at the recommended dose is producing unfavorable results, such as excessive bowel movements, reduce your intake and then gradually increase as you see fit. Or you may want to start minimally from the beginning and gradually increase your consumption of Vibrant Biome Probiotics for the first 2-3 days.

Learn about potent pre-biotic substances such as Resistant Starch (RS) and Fermentable Fiber (FF). RS and FF provide an ideal food and growing environment for good bacteria to flourish and for bad bacteria or bad fungus in your body to be released. To get more FF, eat more salads! Make stir-fry, mild curries, or stews with veggies like broccoli, cabbage, yams, fennel root, kale, onion, and garlic...and please do not overcook these! Eat your favorite beans and legumes. Eat fewer dairy products and less meat for a while because they contain no RS or FF.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. How can Sarvaa produce probiotics that are a higher potency than most?

A major factor that Sarvaa is able to share high potency probiotics is that we don't spend big money on marketing. We put all our resources into making the best quality products at fair prices and let word of mouth spread the message. This is the opposite of most supplement companies who spend up to 50 percent of their budgets on marketing, and consequently the quality of their products suffer.

So that's the quality. Now let's talk quantity: For the first time ever, you can now buy super high potency probiotics in bulk. A typical bottle of probiotics only contains 9-13 grams of actual probiotics in 30 capsules. And the CFU count ranges from 1 billion to 20 billion per capsule.

With Sarvaa Probiotics Dark Chocolate you get 96 billion CFU of pure and potent probiotics in each chocolate bar. 

2. Do probiotics really help my mood?

Strangely enough, yes! Actually, a resounding yes! Because 95% of your serotonin is produced in your gut, that fact alone is proof that taking good care of your microbiome will help your attitude, outlook and overall resilience in the face of challenges. Also, the fact that the good bacteria in your lower GI tract are the little powerhouses that do the hard work of breaking down resistant starches and fermentable fiber that your stomach and small intestine are not designed to do. Why do you want them to do this work? Because this process is what you need to create all the short-chain fatty acids you need day by day to be happy and healthy! If your system is struggling to create and absorb the much-needed nutrients like short-chain fatty acids, then your vitality and mood will be stressed as well. Therefore, a happy gut makes a happy you! And you probably already knew that dark chocolate is good for your mood, adding in probiotics just makes it even more potent.

3. Why the emphasis on the Bacillus family of Beneficial Bacteria?

Great question. The Bacillus family of bacteria are some of the most highly beneficial bacteria in the human GI tract. Why? Because they're unique among the good bacteria. They're Soil Based Organisms (SBO) that survive heat and stomach acids and arrive alive in your Lower GI tract where they're most needed. This is because they enter your body in their larva stage, where they are encased in a shell that survives your stomach acid. In your lower GI, this shell hatches, and the Bacillus strains proliferate and begin their work. They digest sugars, fibers, and starches to create essential nutrients for you. These include: short-chain fatty acids that improve your gene expression, your hormone balance, your mood, your stress response-ability, reduce your susceptibility to allergies, improve your overall immune system function, along with many more potent benefits to your overall health and well-being.

4. What exactly is Bacillus?

As we said above, Bacillus strains are unique soil based beneficial bacteria that are some of the only healthy gut flora that are Sporebiotic bacteria. Bacillus strains of Sporebiotics tend to be larger cells and they're much more robust than most strains of bacteria! They have the highest rate of survival during transportation and more importantly, they tend to have the highest rate of aliveness after passing through the highly acidic environment of your upper GI tract, and can easily populate in your lower GI tract so that you have a thriving community of beneficial bacteria.

5. What are Sporebiotics?

They're a rare and special type of beneficial bacteria that are a soil based organisms that are actually able to form a spore, or "seed", inside themselves instead of simply doing the typical cell division type of propagation. Sporebiotics, aka Spore Forming Units (SFU), are considered a more advanced life form than most other good bacteria because of this powerful and highly intelligent survival mechanism. Therefore, they're able to do more powerful and intelligent work for you in your gut microbiome, too!

6. Why haven't I heard much about Sporebiotics?

Until recently, they simply were not as well understood and people tend to stick with what they've heard of and are familiar with. But these last twelve years have seen a huge body of research develop, showing the enormous benefits and the essential role that Sporebiotics play in the healthy microflora of humans. And studies show that these strains are highly durable and easily survive transport and storage and easily survive your stomach acid. As they become more understood, hey are becoming more and more popular as well; especially among experts, specialists and doctors who work with intricacies of the human microbiome.

Also, Sporebiotics used to me more costly to grow and harvest, so they were not incorporated into probiotic supplements until recently, when the data became too overwhelming to ignore. Yet, due to their relative rarity and higher cost, most companies who make probiotics still don't include Sporebiotic strains, or they're only included in tiny, worthless amounts.

7. Spores sound like fungus. Why would I put that in my body?

Yes, it's a common misconception. And while it's true that fungus are famous for reproducing via spores, some highly evolved good bacteria do also a similar form of reproduction. But remember, the word "spore" is just a scientific term for seed. Think of these spores in the case of bacteria as "bacteria seeds" or bacteria inside of "shells." Most strains of beneficial bacteria are not Spore Forming Bacteria. The bacteria that do form spores are actually some of the most advanced and intelligent forms of healthy bacteria on the planet and are especially good for your gut.

8. Can Sporebiotics help with yeast infections?

Again, Sporebiotics are unique Spore Forming Bacteria. Although the word "spore" sounds like it might be fungus, the truth is that these are potent beneficial bacteria strains that are extremely helpful in eliminating harmful yeasts and any kind of unhealthy fungal overgrowth. And Sporebiotics, aka Spore Forming Units (SFU), are actually some of the most highly prescribed and science-proven strains for healing vaginal yeast infections and the whole GI Tract. And sporebiotic strains are typically the best for all stages of the process, from the beginning to the end, of rebuilding all aspects of your overall Microbiome to help prevent getting yeast infections in the first place.

9. Tell me more about prostate health and Probiotics.

As you've been reading on this webpage, probiotics are highly beneficial to so many aspects of your health. Men's health is not excluded from these powerful benefits! Probiotics, especially the strains that are included in Vibrant Biome, are being shown to help prevent and manage common prostate woes, like prostatitis and benign prostatic hyperplasia, and may play a role in treating prostate cancer. What's really happening here is that high quality probiotics are assisting in reducing inflammation and resisting infection. Some experts believe that an imbalance in bacteria in the urethra can cause prostatitis. Too many antibiotics in your system can also trigger disease. So including excellent probiotics in your diet can help manage the bad bacteria and prevent them from finding their way into your prostate.

10. Why can’t I just eat yogurt?

Only if you make your own yogurt at home that is noticeably "bubbly" and effervescent will your yogurt have a high enough presence of beneficial bacteria to make it qualify as an effective source of probiotics. Have you ever wondered why no yogurt brands actually tell you how much bacteria you're getting per serving? Ever wondered why there's never a CFU number on the container? It's because the numbers are so terribly low that it would be a big embarrassment to the companies to reveal them. Especially since a large number of the cheap yogurts have zero CFU so that they will have a much longer shelf life, and therefore make much more money for the manufacturers and the stores. Further, many of the bacteria present in yogurts have a very low survival rate when reaching the large intestine and colon. So even if the bacteria have survived long enough to enter your body, there's a good chance that they won't reach your lower GI where they are greatly needed. 

11. Why are Sporebiotics usually so pricy?

Sporebiotic Spore Forming Bacteria are more expensive to grow and require a higher quality and more expensive growth-medium. And Sporebiotics such as the excellent Bacillus strains are typically larger bacterial cells, and "take up more space" in a pill than the more typical bacteria you find on the market, so many supplement companies avoid them. And until recently, very few people were able to grow them in sufficient quantities to offer them in significant concentrations of SFUs. So if they're included in a probiotic at all, they're often in minuscule amounts simply for marketing reasons. For instance, for many years the most prescribed Sporebiotic probiotic by doctors has been Mega Sporebiotic. They were the leading edge for years, but you had to take two capsules to get only four billion CFU's. And a 30 day supply retails for $69. Incredibly expensive, considering the very low potency and only a 30 day supply. However, Sarvaa Probiotics give you over 20 billion SFU per serving, and a 60 day supply! You can do the math. Sarvaa Vibrant Biome Probiotics-20 are 11 times more potent and you get a longer lasting supply.

12. How can Sarvaa sell probiotics at such a high quality and at a lower price?

First, you have to understand several background factors. One is that doctors' offices and health food stores mark up supplements by double or more. That alone raises your cost a huge amount compared to buying direct. Second is the amount of money that supplement manufactures want to make at the expense of the consumer, who is typically not educated enough in these matters to make more informed decisions, so the companies can get away with outrageous profits.

But now we're seeing some companies return to a more ethical and honest approach to high quality healthy food and higher quality, cleaner supplements. And then there are the one percent of small companies, like Sarvaa Organics, that were founded on the "Super-Ethical" model of doing business, aka Sacred Commerce, that aims to simply use money as a practical tool to support the process of delivering the best quality at the lowest possible price so that more people can take back their health from Big Food and Big Pharma. It really boils down to ethics and "Dharma." 

13. Are Sarvaa Probiotics compatible with fermented foods?

Yes. However, for the first two weeks, one should be careful with the quantities of a new probiotic supplement that you're consuming. For instance, if you're in the mood to eat a large amount of your favorite fermented foods at breakfast, then it might be wise to use high potency Sarvaa Vibrant Biome later in the day, so as to avoid loose bowel movements, etc.

14. Is it true these probiotics don't need refrigeration? Don't they need to be cold to stay viable?

No, they don't need refrigeration! As mentioned above, the strains of beneficial bacteria in Vibrant Biome Probiotics are shelf stable. However, if you prefer to keep them in your fridge, it won't harm them in any way. The main thing that could degrade their quality is if you left them in a hot care, or by a hot window, getting baked by direct sunlight for several days.

15. What is the difference between the 4 versions of Vibrant Biome Probiotics?

The 11 strains of beneficial microflora are exactly the same. The primary difference is:

  • VB-Dark Chocolate contains 12 servings X 8 billion CFU = 96 billion per chocolate bar, 
  • VB-20 contains 60 servings of 20 billion active Colony Forming Units (CFU) per serving.
  • VB-50 contains 60 servings of 50 billion active CFU, 
  • VB-90 contains 60 servings of a whopping 90 billion active CFU! 

Vibrant Biome Probiotics Dark Chocolate, VB-20 and VB-50 also contain two Pre-biotics, (F.O.S. & Artichoke Inulin), and also contains L-Glutamine, an essential amino acid that helps in the repair of digestive lining, and other resistant starches as food for the probiotics.

The chocolate bar is 2 oz./57 grams.

The three jar sizes are the same, but the ratios of Probiotics vs. Prebiotics & L-Glutamine varies. This is what it looks like:

VB-90 only has Probiotics and no prebiotics and L-Glutamine.

VB-50 has Probiotics and some prebiotics and L-Glutamine.

VB-20 has Probiotics and a large amount of prebiotics and L-Glutamine.

16. How do I decide which version of Vibrant Biome to get?

This can be a complex question to answer because you have numerous factors in your health background that affect your decision. You need to closely consider your unique desires and goals for reducing some of your personal health issues, all while leveraging the good things that are already happening inside of you. 

Choose VB-Dark Chocolate if:

  1.  You're concerned about the taste of the probiotic powder in the bulk options below, and want the probiotics taste to be well disguised in creamy delicious chocolate.
  2. You have a child or partner that won't take probiotics any other way.
  3. You love the great combo of high-potency Sporebiotics combined with the most rare "tree to bar chocolate" on Earth.

Choose VB-20 if:

  1. You're mostly concerned about price,
  2. You want more prebiotics and L-Glutamine than Probiotics per jar,
  3. You're very sensitive to Probiotics,
  4. You're serving it to an elder or a child.

Choose VB-90 if:

  1. You already eat a lot of prebiotic fibers & resistant starches and don't need L-Glutamine,
  2. AND if money isn't too tight.

Choose VB-50 if:

  1. You fit somewhere in the middle of VB-20 and VB-90.

Consider flexible dosing.

With flexible dosing it's possible for you to get a head start on improving your gut health by temporarily doubling your dose of VB-20. (By doubling your dose for a few days, you'd be creating your own "VB-40" with 40 billion CFU.) Then shift back into a more normal maintenance dose of 20 billion CFU so that you don't use up your jar too quickly and defeat the budget aspect.

17. What if I want to do a "Therapeutic Dose" versus a maintenance dose?

Great question. That's the beauty of getting to buy such high-grade Sporebiotic Probiotics in bulk instead of in pill form. You can easily decide to change your level of daily intake of probiotics based on what else is going on in your diet and your life. For instance, let's say you've been under extra stress, or say you were traveling and were not able to eat as well as you might have liked. And if you had to take antibiotics, you would probably want to increase your dosage by quite a bit for at least a few weeks to be certain that you've properly repopulated your intestinal flora in the best possible way.

18. Should I stop taking probiotics when taking an antibiotic?

First, you should always consult your doctor about this topic. However, many leading-edge doctors and other practitioners are actually prescribing Sporebiotic types of probiotics to their patients while they're on antibiotics. Why? Because all the good data points out that these Sporebiotic strains will continue to help you recover from whatever illness or foreign invader is in your body. And by taking Sporebiotic probiotics simultaneously with your antibiotic, you won't have to work nearly as hard to rebuild a healthy and thriving microbiome after you're done taking the course of antibiotics.

19. Will antibiotics and probiotics clash if I take them at the same time?

The correct answer entirely depends on the strains in your probiotics. If they're Sporebiotic Probiotics, then you're in good shape. If not, you're not likely to do any harm to your body, but you would be wasting your money taking "old-school" probiotics that don't contain at least two high quality Sporebiotic strains such as Bacillus coagulans and Bacillus subtilis.

20. What about SIBO and probiotics?

Always consult your doctor if you have Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth, aka SIBO. This can be a very complex issue to understand, so it's always wise to do your homework. Many SIBO specialists suggest waiting to re-introduce any probiotics or fermented foods until after you've cleared up the overgrowth of bacteria, especially clearing out any overgrowth in your upper GI tract. However, once you are ready to rebuild your microbiome with the best possible beneficial bacteria, then Sporebiotic strains are often considered the safest route to pursue. This is due to their innate quality of being in "bacteria seed" form. They are unlikely to contribute to any unwanted excess bacterial overgrowth in your upper GI tract and will grow from seed to full blown beneficial bacterial in your lower intestines, where you really need them to flourish.

21. Will I have to take probiotics indefinitely?

Again, this is entirely up to you and varies person to person. A vast majority of people on this planet are not receiving optimal nutrition on a daily basis, and including probiotics in your diet is a sure-fire way for you to stay at optimal health even on the days when eating at your best may not be feasible. But if you find that you are eating really well, and getting plenty of food-based probiotics on a very regular basis, you may want to experiment with taking some time off from including a probiotic supplement in your routine. You are the expert on your body. And if taking a probiotic supplement every day helps you be your best you, then do it!

Summary:

Beneficial Bacteria ( aka 'Pro'-biotics ) are a driving force in creating optimal health and avoiding disease. Probiotics are the foundation of the community of micro-organisms in your gut that boost your immune system, help you defend yourself from harmful bacteria and viruses, and help to heal diseases, chronic inflammation, food sensitivities, and even seasonal allergies.

Stress, sleeplessness, and/or a poor diet that includes aggravants like processed sugars, gluten, or GMOs can cause the beneficial probiotic bacteria in your gut to weaken and be kicked out by invasive, disease promoting strains of bacteria that train your body to express less healthy genetic structures in your cells.

Every bite of food you eat contains genetic material that drives the genes you are expressing on a minute by minute basis. Every good night's sleep you get and every stressful moment you relax through shapes your microbiome by supporting the biosphere in your gut so beneficial bacteria can grow and thrive. Supporting the beneficial bacteria in your gut promotes your long-term health and happiness by preventing dis-ease and imbalance. This process can be supported and potently boosted by taking a potent probiotic like Vibrant Biome-20.

Probiotics are essential to keeping your whole body, mind, and mood balanced. If the beneficial bacteria in your gut become imbalanced your health and quality of life can suffer. However, this also means that by healing your gut you can heal your body and your mood and drastically upgrade your quality of life! 

Science has argued for decades that your inherited genetics drive the fate of your health, but now that conversation is shifting and your Microbiome is proving to be the driving conscious mechanism behind your health. Your health is an expression of your lifestyle and habits shaping your body and mind over time, and not some static inevitability you're stuck with because of your parents genetics.

Your gut health affects every breath you take, every heartbeat in your day, and all of your thoughts, feelings and moods! The vibrancy of your powerful microbiome is the starting point for everything from vitamin production, enzymatic action, pH balance, short-chain fatty acid production, and gene expression. And it's where you create the vast majority of your essential mood hormones such as serotonin!

All four versions of Vibrant Biome Probiotics are the most advanced formulation of beneficial bacteria at the one of the highest potencies you can buy at the best price anywhere! Vibrant Biome Probiotics includes high concentrations of leading-edge Sporebiotic strains; a "next-level" formulation of the most effective 11 strains. Benefits include rebuilding a damaged Microbiome and maintaining optimal gut health to enhance all aspects of your energy, mood, and vitality, which spreads into every other aspect of your beautiful life!

    Vibrant Biome Probiotics Dark Chocolate

    Posted by Julie on 22nd Feb 2021

    The only reason I did not give 5 stars is that I have not used long enough to speak to the effect on my biome. I will say my belly and digestion feel good. I will say that the chocolate, the consistency, the flavor are beyond description--smooth without being too sweet, dense and dark without being bitter--it is just heaven. I've never tasted chocolate like that in my life and I've tasted a lot of chocolate. It is amazing to also enjoy totally guilt-free and feel the satisfaction that I am supporting my health and well-being. Thank you!

    New Probiotic Chocolate Bar

    Posted by Archana Roberts on 7th Feb 2021

    Excellent for gut biome and DELICIOUS❣️. I am recovering from two heart surgeries (CRT-P pacemaker insertion and AV Node Ablation) in December — both requiring antibiotics and general anesthesia. I take Gundry probiotics as well as Kombucha to restore my GI tract, etc.. However, a few bites of this chocolate seemed to regulate my digestion much more quickly. The only issue is cost — and — not eating an entire bar at one time. Great product❣️. I would buy a lot if not on SS as main income. Thank all who produce it for also all the Love & Light in each bar❣️

    Unique and good

    Posted by Daveed on 27th Jan 2021

    I thought it might taste weird, but I love it. It has a unique hint of fermented food or red wine. Nice creamy texture too.
