Bio-Kult is the recommended Probiotic for individuals following the the Gut and Psychology Syndrome Protocol and was formulated by a team of doctors, nutritionists and scientists (including Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride) dedicated to advancing the research and use of probiotic health supplements.

The healthy body naturally hosts trillions of beneficial bacteria. Amongst other things, they help to support and maintain a strong immune system and a healthy digestive system. Today’s lifestyle of stress and poor nutrition can compromise these essential functions. The complete formula in Bio-Kult helps balance and maintain these natural systems against pathogenic and opportunistic organisms.

It is of fundamental importance that we have an adequate level of these probiotic bacteria in our bodies at all times. With fourteen strains of beneficial bacteria at a concentration of 10 billion per gram, Bio-Kult is one of the most powerful probiotic supplements available.

There are 14 strains of beneficial microorganisms within Bio-Kult:

1. Lactobacillus acidophilus
2. Lactobacillus delbrueckii ssp. bulgaricus
3. Lactococcus lactis ssp. lactis
4. Lactobacillus casei
5. Lactobacillus helveticus
6. Lactobacillus plantarum
7. Lactobacillus rhamnosus
8. Lactobacillus salivarius ssp. salivarius
9. Bifidobacterium breve
10. Bifidobacterium bifidum
11 Bifidobacterium infantis
12. Bifidobacterium longum
13. Bacillus subtilis
14. Streptococcus thermophilus

Probiotics represent a nutritional live microbial supplement that positively affects the host by enhancing the microbial balance. They work in a number of ways including: competitive exclusion, production of bacteriocins and lowering of gut pH. Although all probiotics’ mechanisms of action are not yet fully understood, it is known that they also have an effect on immune responses in the gut, which reduces inflammation. The use of probiotics has been suggested for the prevention and treatment of gut health problems, including acute infectious diarrhoea, antibiotic-associated diarrhoea and inflammatory bowel disease.

Whilst Bio-Kult does contain maltodextrin which is not strictly a gaps food, it provides food for the good flora when ingested. Dr. McBride believes that the Maltodextrin component is so small that it does not interfere with the GAPS Nutrition Protocol. In her own experience with thousands of patients, she has only come across 2 cases where Maltodextrin was a problem and this is with patients who had acute sensitivity to Matodextrin.  The Maltodextrin is derived from corn.

Bio-Kult contains probiotic strains that have been shown to produce lactase, the enzyme needed to break down lactose, which is usually lacking in people intolerant to lactose. Bio-Kult contains traces of milk products at a level which would not affect lactose intolerance sufferers.
