Probiotic concentrate with the fermentation of hawthorn fruit and leaves is one of the products of the Bioteria™ line.
This year’s summer abounds in high temperatures, but longer days affect the desire for more intensive and active use of free time. It is useful to strengthen the body before undertaking greater physical exertion.
Despite the increasing availability of fresh vegetables and fruits, it is also worth using moderate supplementation in the summer. It is worth recalling the strengthening role of B vitamins, also regulating numerous metabolic processes or supplementing vitamin D, by actively spending time in the sun. Our energy and mood level are affected by numerous strains of bacteria that have specific performance characteristics.
In the scientific literature, the intestines are more often referred to as the second brain. The intestines are highly innervated, i.e. they have at least 100 million nerve cells. In addition, the effect of intestinal work remains, e.g. making decisive for the psychological well-being of neurotransmitters – e.g. hormones such as dopamine and serotonin. Bacteria affect the proper functioning of the intestines. Unfortunately, 21st century food does not always have a positive effect on their development conditions, multiplication, existence of individual strains.
A short reminder
Meanwhile, let’s briefly recall some concepts.
-Probiotic is live, selected microorganisms – generally bacteria, sometimes fungi (yeast), which when taken cause a positive effect on the body.
-The prebiotic present in food stimulates the growth of microorganisms. Fiber remains one of the more well-known prebiotics. How to make a wolf literally full and a sheep whole? Well, it combines all the advantages, which is reflected in the name, a synbiotic.
-Synbiotic = probiotic + prebiotic.
-Postbiotics – bioactive metabolites produced by health-promoting bacteria, including vitamins, enzymes, mineral salts and antioxidants.
-Finally, the last concept functioning in the language thanks to the discovery in 1928 by Alexander Fleming of penicillin – an antibiotic.
*An antibiotic is a substance created by microorganisms (bacteria, fungi) that kills other bacteria.
Advantages of hawthorn extract
I will try to present the topic of the effects of antibiotic therapy in the context of pro- and prebiotics in a different text. Meanwhile, in connection with the need to strengthen the body for the summer I would like to present “Concentrate of probiotic drink Bioteria™ hawthorn”. The hawthorn itself has already been used in folk medicine, and was subjected in the 20th century to tests that confirmed its numerous health properties.
Studies have shown that hawthorn is a rich source of vitamin C that increases the body’s immunity and reduces blood pressure. Vitamin A contained in the plant also increases immunity. The richness of B vitamins, affects the good condition of the autonomic nervous system, improves concentration and performance, while silencing and calming down and strengthening the body. Flavonoids reduce blood pressure and the level of bad cholesterol, while increasing the elasticity of blood vessels, they also improve the work of intestinal smooth muscle. Hawthorn also contains a lot of prebiotic indicated earlier – fiber and numerous mineral salts that regulate processes inside the body.
The presence of hawthorn, thanks to its properties, enhances the effect of the probiotic. The product “Bioteria hawthorn Probiotic Concentrate” contains over 23% hawthorn berries and 20% flowers of this plant. Inflorescences are collected in late spring (May and June), while fruit in early autumn (September and October). In addition, the product contains an extract from fermented herbal plants, remembering that fermentation increases the absorption of nutrients, vitamins and mineral salts.
The basis of Bioteria hawthorn concentrate
Of course, the basis of the concentrate remains a set of live probiotic bacteria. It is up to 600 million bacteria of several strains in a daily portion. Numerous strains intensify the effect on the digestive tract and strengthen the body’s resistance, and subsequently affect more energy in daily functioning.
The silence that hawthorn gives is conducive to better sleep quality. So we will wake up more rested, and during the day, with systematic use, we will be able to experience bursts of energy.
The concentrate is recommended to be used as an everyday element of the diet. It can be safely taken 3 times a day, which gives 50 servings with a volume of 500 ml, while the already concentrated concentrate should be consumed within 30 days.
