The many health benefits of BIO-15 Probiotics
With the holiday period fast approaching, we’ve spoken to a number of health experts about how us bingewatchers can stay healthy while keeping up with our streaming schedules. Here’s why a probiotic should be on your shopping list.
People ask, “Can I take any probiotic product?” The answer is there are probiotics then there are super-probiotics, as we will explain.
BIO-15 Probiotics is one of the super-probiotics. There are living microorganisms that include fungi, yeasts, bacteria (the majority) and viruses that live in the gut and are collectively known as the gut microbiome.
In a healthy person, “good” microbes (non-pathogenic) make up about 85% of the gut microbiome while the “bad” microbes (disease-causing) make up about 15%. The gut microbiome plays a huge role in regulating mental and physical health as long as it is in balance. Imbalance causes mental and physical health problems which can be reversed by taking probiotics.

What causes imbalance in the gut microbiome?
Imbalance happens when “good” microbes are destroyed due to frequent intake of antibiotics which destroy both “good” and “bad” bacteria. Pollution, food additives (in processed foods), estrogen (from birth control pills) in water and other chemicals also destroy the “good” microbes. This changes the proportion of “good” and “bad” microbes in the gut.
What are the effects of imbalance?
Imbalance means there are insufficient “good” microbes to destroy the “bad” microbes that enter through the mouth. “Bad” bacteria flourish and cause frequent infections, particularly upper respiratory infections.
“Bad” yeast overgrowth causes frequent infections of the vagina, the skin and other areas, frequent headaches, chronic fatigue, brain fog, depression, anxiety and many other problems. Sufferers benefit a lot from taking probiotics.
What are the sources of probiotics?
Probiotics are available through food. However, the Western diet contains very little or no probiotics and people need to take probiotic supplements. Unfortunately, some supplements contain very few living microorganisms due to the method of preparation. That is why people need products like BIO-15, a super probiotic.
What makes BIO-15 a super probiotic?
BIO-15 is a super probiotic because it contains living microorganisms (including 15 strains of lactic acid bacteria), prebiotics, biogenics, 18 amino acids, 10 vitamins, 9 minerals and 4 organic acids.
It is prepared using an ancient Japanese method of fermenting 180 herbs, berries, mushrooms and other plants over 6 years. The method does not destroy any microbes but encourages their multiplication and it preserves nutrients. The product is encased in double-coated capsules that protect it from the stomach acids so that the probiotics reach the gut alive.
The probiotics replace the missing “good” microbes in the gut which then feed on the prebiotics. The biogenics, amino acids, vitamins, minerals and organic acids greatly improve health.
What are the health benefits of BIO-15?
Due to the great quantity of living microorganisms and nutrients, BIO-15 has many health benefits.
1. Natural remedy for gut and intestinal problems
BIO-15 solves many problems of the digestive tract. Irritable bowel syndrome is one of the problems that is relieved by BIO-15. It is characterized by bloating, gas, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Suggested causes include bacterial overgrowth leading to infections, carbohydrate malabsorption, food sensitivities and intestinal inflammation.
BIO-15 resolves IBS from many angles. Pediococcus acidlactici and other bacterial strains improve digestion of complex carbohydrates and kill pathogens. Bifidobacterium lactis reduces intestinal permeability, lactose intolerance, allergies, and inflammation. Bifidobacterium bifidum improves symptoms of IBS such as diarrhea, constipation, upper and lower abdominal pain and bloating.
Other “good” bacteria work in similar or different ways. Together they heal the gut lining, improve digestion of proteins and complex carbohydrates, reduce inflammation and eliminate diarrhea, bloating, constipation and pain. Gradually the symptoms of IBS are eliminated.
Other digestive tract health problems such as inflammatory bowel disease and colitis are eliminated as well. The result is pain-free digestion, good absorption of nutrients and no food sensitivities.
2. Natural remedy for skin allergies
Poor absorption of nutrients in an inflamed gut and a lymphatic system clogged up with toxins and “bad” bacteria show up as skin problems such as acne and eczema. To eliminate these problems, one needs to heal the gut and this is exactly what BIO-15 will do.
BIO-15 introduces good bacteria that reduce gut inflammation which leads to better absorption of nutrients and better elimination of toxins through bowel movement. The good bacteria also destroy the bad bacteria in the gut. Within a few weeks of taking BIO-15 the skin begins to look healthier and feel better.
3. Prevents yeast overgrowth
BIO-15 controls yeast growth in the gut, reversing and preventing chronic fatigue, mood swings, depression, anxiety, vaginal infections, urinary tract infections, eczema, psoriasis, joint pain, general inflammation and some gut problems.
4. Boosts the immune system
BIO-15 improves the immune system because the gut microbiome works closely with the immune system. The “good” microbes communicate with the immune cells, helping the body respond strongly to infection. They also kill the “bad” microbes that enter the gut through the mouth and compete with them for food and bring them under control. The “bad” fail to colonize the gut and cannot cause too many infections.
5. Lowers blood pressure
BIO-15 reduces blood pressure as has been found by several studies. It also increases vitamin D levels which also controls blood pressure.
6. Improves heart health
BIO-15 prevents heart disease by rebalancing the gut microbiome which then controls bad cholesterol and prevents accumulation of plaque in the arteries.
7. Prevents type 2 diabetes
BIO-15 rebalances the gut microbiome which then reduces blood sugar levels and lowers the risk of type 2 diabetes.
8. Improves brain health
BIO-15 relieves anxiety and depression and improves cognitive ability and memory. It works by rebalancing the gut microbiome which then communicates more effectively with the brain. Some “good” bacteria in BIO-15 produce neurotransmitters that improve brain health.
9. Improves bone health
BIO-15 introduces good microbes into the gut which increase calcium absorption leading to stronger bones.
10. Improves general health
The 180 herbs, mushrooms, berries and plants used to make BIO-15 contribute 18 amino acids (including 10 essential), vitamins, minerals and organic acids which all contribute to better health. The biogenics (phytochemicals) are anti-aging, suppress cancer and they regulate sugar levels, cholesterol levels, the digestive system, allergic reactions, the immune system, appetite and stress.
11. Controls body weight
BIO-15 controls weight. How? Scientists believe that some microbes inhibit the absorption of dietary fat, limiting calorie absorption and preventing weight gain. Other microbes help with the fermentation of indigestible fibers which then produce short-chain fatty acids that prevent weight gain.
Are all probiotics equal?
People believe that they can take any probiotic product but some probiotic do not contain living microorganisms due to the way they are prepared. That is why people need super-probiotics like BIO-15 which contains many living microbes and nutrients. Finding the best probiotic may just be the missing ingredient to a healthier lifestyle!
