Why try SCD Essential Probiotics®?


Most microbial technologies today are based on “pure culture” methods of manufacturing. This means the microorganisms are grown as individual strains in a sterile environment and freeze dried. The strains of probiotics are then made into a powder and put into a capsule or stamped into a tablet. Products containing multiple strains of probiotics are typically blended at the time of packaging when the microbes are dormant. The strains never have the opportunity to interact with each other in the “live” phase until digested.

SCD Essential Probiotics is fundamentally different because the 11 strains of probiotics are grown together in production or “in consortia.” They are mixed together in a vat (similar to wine making) and nourished throughout the manufacturing process. Therefore, each probiotic strain develops while interacting with the other strains. Through our process the microorganisms become a small eco system – much stronger and capable of working together. Our methodology is similar to how microorganisms survive in the natural environment. In nature, microbial strains do not exist in isolation or “pure culture”. They are always interacting with other strains.
