What are Innovia™ Nectar Probiotic Micro-Shots?

Probiotics have captivated the interest of both scientists and consumers since they were first launched in health food stores several decades ago – the market has mushroomed since then with hundreds of credible human clinical trials, new strains developed, and new probiotic products, many of which no longer need to be refrigerated. Many Americans’ interest in probiotics took off when medical scientists confirmed that antibiotic overuse wipes out the good bacteria that keeps us healthy.

This interest spurred more intense research and development of products consumers would want to adopt into their healthy lifestyles. One such product is Innovia Digestion Probiotic Micro-Shot.

What is a Probiotic Micro-Shot?

One of the most significant challenges facing probiotic supplement effectiveness is the ability to make it to their destination alive (probiotics are living organisms). In order for probiotics to reach the gut ready to move in and thrive, they must survive the acidic environment of the stomach —the less protected the bacteria are on their trip to the gut, the more likely it is that they will be destroyed en route.

Our Digestion Probiotic Micro-Shot is a different approach to delivering probiotics alive to the gut. This unique and tasty mango-flavored liquid delivery form takes less time to deliver the bacteria than a traditional capsule, which needs to be broken down first to release the bacteria on their journey to the intestines.

How it Works

What separates the Innovia Nectar Digestion Probiotic Micro-Shots from other products on the market is how it works, which starts with the patented cap technology. We isolate live and stable probiotics in a protective “alu-blister” located within the cap which protects the bacteria from humidity and other volatile environmental factors. Simply push down on the cap to release the probiotics into a liquid containing botanical extracts, vitamins and additional nutrients that work synergistically with our probiotic blend—which provides your body with optimal nutrients— then simply drink the shot. It’s that easy to get 8 billion viable, live cultures of L. paracasei LP-DG® delivered to your gut, which helps to reduce inflammation and restore balance of beneficial microflora.

There are many benefits associated with separating sensitive probiotic powders and active liquids until the time of ingestion, notably superior product stability and viability without the need for refrigeration. The end result? A more concentrated dose of live, healthy probiotics for a more effective restoration of microflora balance.

Further, the Micro-Shot technology utilized in the Digestion product allows beneficial bacteria to remain viable for up to two years without any need for refrigeration.

All strains are not created equal — Innovia Nectar Digestion Probiotic Micro-Shots contains LP-DG, a popular probiotic strain known for its ability to improve digestive function by restoring beneficial gut microflora and supporting a healthy inflammatory response. It has undergone extensive clinical studies. When combined with the liquid blend in the Micro-Shot, LP-DG is synergistically enhanced to provide attractive and effective broad-spectrum benefits to the body.

What’s Inside?

Part of what makes Digestion Probiotic Micro-Shots so effective is the liquid blend that serves as a base for the 8 billion viable cultures of LP-DG bacteria. Innovia’s liquid carrier system is ideal for helping probiotics reach the gut in the largest possible concentrations. Let’s take a closer look at what’s inside.

Standardized Whole-leaf Aloe Vera Extract

The innovative delivery system starts with a standardized whole-leaf aloe vera extract, which contains two important enzymes that help support digestion and improve absorption of nutrients. Aloe works to break down carbohydrates, starches, sugars and fat. It’s also a good source of polysaccharides, which some studies show act as a prebiotic, nourishing beneficial gut bacteria.

Curcumin Probiotic

Curcumin Rhizome Extract

The culinary herb turmeric has gained popularity as a supplement to address regulation of inflammation, an action of its chief constituent, curcumin (curcuminoids). Curcumin has been the subject of numerous studies that have shown that it supports healthy inflammatory response, and also acts as an antioxidant. Some studies have shown that curcumin has GI benefits – alleviating bloating and gas, and stimulating the gallbladder to produce bile (which may help improve digestion). The extract we use comes from a patented process which maximizes the quality and bioavailability of curcuminoids for best effect.

Vitamin D3

Many people are deficient in Vitamin D3—especially those who don’t get enough sun exposure regularly. D3 helps to support immune health and can assist in regulating blood pressure, bone density levels and calcium balance. It’s the easiest form of vitamin D for the body to absorb.

Benefits of Innovia Nectar Digestion Probiotic Micro-Shots

There are several key attractive benefits of taking Digestion Probiotic Micro-Shots.

1. Restored Microbiome Balance

The body’s microbiome can be viewed as a community of bacteria—both good and bad—which share the same environment. In a healthy individual, 85% of these are “good” bacteria, but outside factors such as stress, diet and antibiotic overuse can disrupt microflora and ultimately change the status of the microbiome. Our LP-DG® strain Micro-Shots help to bring bacteria ratios back to normal, which may serve to help reduce GI-related symptoms.

2. Healthier Skin

Inflammation is one of the main causes of chronic skin conditions, yet it often goes overlooked as a cause. Certain probiotics may reduce the severity of certain skin conditions that express as red spots or scaly, by supporting healthy inflammatory response.

3. Improved Immunity

Did you know that as much as 70% of the body’s immune system lives within the gut? If there’s a strong imbalance in the microbiome, your gut simply doesn’t operate the way it should —naturally, neither does your immune system, since so much of it can be found within the gut itself. Probiotics may be effective in helping to feel relatively healthy, even through times of stress (environmental, mental, emotional).

4. Regulated Healthy Mood

The gut has often been called the body’s “second brain” due to the large amount of neurotransmitters it contains. Just as with your immune system, poor gut health and microflora imbalances can lead to bouts of low mood, anxiety or fluctuating mood. Probiotics help to restore balance to the microbiome, thus allowing the billions of neurotransmitters it contains to function at peak capacity.

5. Reduced Allergy Symptoms

Anyone who deals with allergies on a regular basis knows just how disruptive they can be. Because probiotics help to decrease intestinal wall permeability, they may also help to prevent allergens from entering the bloodstream. The result? Less sniffling and sneezing when you’re out and about.
