Today, there is a high demand for probiotic supplements. If you are looking for one, you have to know that there are two types of probiotics. Some are made from bacteria while others are made from lactic yeast. Here are some advantages of yeast-based probiotics over bacteria-based supplements.
Yeast-Based Can Survive the Gastric Environment
In order for supplements to work, they first have to reach the gut to thrive. One of the disadvantages of bacteria-based supplements is that some of the culture won’t be able to get pass the stomach and reach the intestine. Those that survive the gastric environment may not be healthy enough to flourish in the gut. This is because bacteria-based supplements don’t have the capacity to survive in an acidic environment.
Yeast-based probiotics, like Kluyveromyces marxianus fragilis B0399, have a protective coating that shields it from the acid of the stomach and allows it to reach the gut in good condition so it can thrive.
Yeast-Based Probiotics Need Less CFU than Their Bacteria-Based Counterparts to Perform
Probiotics will only be able to do their job if there are enough of them in your gut. The number of required cultures is determined through its Colony Forming Units or CFU. Unlike bacteria-based probiotcs, yeast-based ones need less amount of CFU to be able to work.
