Why Protein Matters

In order to carry out everyday tasks—like making enzymes, hormones, and neurotransmitters—your body needs protein. Not just any protein will do. You need a specific set of amino acids and you need both animal and plant protein.

Some legumes and grain-like seeds are a complete source of protein. We have included these—specifically amaranth and quinoa—in Body Ecology’s Fermented Protein Shake.

But Fermented? Really?

Yes, Fermented! And here’s why:

  • Fermentation removes anti-nutrients, like phytates and tannins, which bind to important minerals and interfere with your ability to thrive.
  • Fermentation pre-digests the food for you, making it easier to digest as you rebuild your inner ecosystem.
  • Fermentation enhances the levels of vitamins and antioxidants in food, making it more nutritious.

Body Ecology’s Fermented Protein Shake includes:

  • Pea Protein Concentrate is made by carefully separating the protein from the starch of the pea. This allows us to double the amount of protein that you usually get from peas.
  • Organic Mushroom Blend features Reishi, King Trumpet, Lion’s Mane, Cordyceps, Agaricus, Turkey Tails, Shiitake, and Maitake. Each mushroom can stand on its own as powerful superfood that supports a robust immune system and helps fight the noxious effects of modern chemicals. Together, the organic mushrooms in our exclusive Blend reinforces your gut barrier while feeding your inner ecosystem, helping you to lose weight and feel your best.
  • Organic Amaranth and Organic Quinoa are two Body Ecology grain-like seeds that are complete proteins. This means you have all the amino acids you need to synthesize hormones and make new cells. Because our Protein Blend is fermented, you don’t have to worry about harsh anti-nutrients that rob your body of minerals.
  • Organic Broccoli and Organic Kale are both members of the Brassica family. This means that they are cruciferous vegetables and naturally high in a compound called sulforaphane. Sulforaphane protects against oxidative stress and inflammation.
  • Hebridean Sea Kelp is alkaline brown algae that swells in your gut, helping you feel full and satisfied after a meal. It also contains a starch called fucoidan, which controls extreme blood sugar spikes. The fiber in brown algae slows down the digestion of your meal without interfering in the absorption of nutrients.
  • Bifidobacterium longum is a probiotic that supports a healthy inner ecosystem and it’s most plentiful in breastfed babies. This bacteria is very well adapted to competition in guts with diets rich in plant-derived complex carbohydrates. They contain a large number of genes predicted to be involved in the metabolism of plant-derived dietary fiber. These fibers become very important short chain fatty acids. Short chain fatty acids are used by the bacteria for fuel so that they can perform their many vital functions.
    • Enjoy an organic and complete protein that is easy to digest.
    • Choose a vegan protein powder that isn’t filled with harsh anti-nutrients.
    • Support your immune system and bid farewell to inflammation.
    • Naturally buffer the effects of stress, leaky gut, and Candida overgrowth.
    • Reprogram your cells to flourish.
    • Harness the power of the sea and manage blood sugar spikes while shedding unwanted weight.

Suggestions For Use: Mix one scoop with 8 ounces of water or other liquid and enjoy!

Not all probiotics are created equal. Body Ecology's Bifidus Power Blend has been carefully crafted to feature four probiotic strains of bifidobacteria. Bifidobacteria are native to the gut of a healthy, breastfed baby, but their numbers gradually decline as you age – and not without consequence!

An aging gut is at the root of chronic disease and recurring illness.

Good Health Begins at Birth

One month after birth, bifidobacteria dominate a healthy, breastfed baby's gut – making up as much as 91 percent of the microbes that live there. 1 These good-for-you bacteria help to tone the gut barrier and cultivate a strong immune system. But unfortunately, not everyone starts out with a microbial ecosystem ruled by bifidobacteria.

There are a few factors that disrupt a baby's gut:

  • Premature birth
  • Cesarean section delivery
  • Use of baby formula
  • Antibiotic use

The bad news is that babies are born via C-section, fed formula, and given antibiotics on the regular. Chances are high that one of these happened in your own life when you were a baby. But at what cost?

While your own story is unique, science illuminates specific trends. For example – during infancy, bifidobacteria turn up the volume on one arm of your immune system, regulating its activity. Without high numbers of good bifidobacteria, your immune system falls out of balance. With this, your risk of inflammation, autoimmune disease, and eczema goes up.2

It turns out that in adults and babies alike, bifidobacteria can curb inflammatory signals that have spun out of control and have led to gastrointestinal distress.3

This includes:

  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Inflammatory bowel disease, such as Crohn's and ulcerative colitis
  • Necrotizing enterocolitis (seen in babies)

Bifidobacteria are able to reduce intestinal permeability and seal a leaky gut.* They take control of the inner ecosystem and push the bad bacteria bullies out. 4

Time Is Not on Your Side

If you were breastfed as a baby, special sugars in breast milk made sure your baby ecosystem was thriving with plenty of bifidobacteria. However, as you move into adulthood, your bifidobacteria decline. Under the right circumstances, this is okay – you want diversity and a healthy mix of microbes. But if a drop in healthy tribes of good bacteria involves antibiotics or a diet filled with processed foods, this can impact your overall immune health.

Remember, bifidobacteria fight inflammation and keep the gut healthy. They're essential in warding off infection and may even protect against the development of disease. This is but one reason why probiotics become increasingly important with each passing year. As you age, a high-quality probiotic like the Bifidus Power Blend can support both your immune system and your digestion.

When the Bifidus Power Blend becomes a regular part of your day, you'll have the support you need to fight off infections and clean up cellular waste. You can rest assured that the Bifidus Power Blend has been expertly formulated to include only the very best probiotic strains for your health.

Trust Your Gut Feeling

As the Principle of Uniqueness reminds us, you know your body, and if you listen close enough, you will intuitively understand what your body needs to function at its best. Relying on this natural "gut feeling" to nurture and improve your health is not to be underestimated. If you have digestive issues, large or small, or if you find yourself dragging through your day more often than you used to, a daily probiotic can help to correct your course.

In our specially formulated Bifidus Power Blend, you'll find:

  • Bifidobacterium longum - Research shows that B. longum can reduce cholesterol, promote weight loss, and relieve constipation.5 In older adults, B. longum minimizes flu and cold-like symptoms – such as fatigue, headache, and runny nose.6 In 2011, scientists found that B. longum could reduce anxiety by way of the gut-brain axis.7
  • Bifidobacterium bifidum - Like its bifidobacteria friends, B. bifidum reduces markers of inflammation. 8 One study published in 2011 even found that a probiotic containing only B. bifidum was enough to significantly improve signs of IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), such as bloating, abdominal pain, and gas. 9Research shows that B. bifidum (along with B. lactis and Lactobacillus acidophilus) can safeguard against eczema when taken in the third trimester of pregnancy.10 And because bifidobacteria levels decrease with age – increasing your risk of infection – researchers found that supplementing with B. bifidum helps to rebuild the inner ecosystem, even after supplementation has ended. 11
  • Bifidobacterium breve - In children with constipation, B. breve increases bowel movements, softens stool, and reduces pain related to constipation.12 In animal studies, researchers found that B. breve suppresses weight gain, improving both cholesterol and blood sugar.13 Other research published in 2015 shows that a probiotic blend of Lactobacillus rhamnosous and B. breve might have an anti-inflammatory effect in cigarette smokers.14
  • Bifidobacteria infantis - In 2013, researchers looked closely at the impact of B. infantis on inflammatory disorders that manifested within the gut or outside the gut. Patients had been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, psoriasis, or chronic fatigue syndrome. In all cases, B. infantis has the ability to trim down inflammatory markers.15 In those with celiac disease who are still consuming gluten, B. infantis reduces inflammatory markers as well as indigestion, reflux, and constipation.16
  • Lactobacillus salivarius - Research from nearly 20 years ago shows that L. salivarius can stop the growth of Helicobacter pylori, the bug responsible for stomach ulcers and stomach pain.17 L. salivarius makes antibacterial proteins that kill disease-causing microbes and gives it a competitive edge in your gut.18 This means that it does good things for your inner ecosystem, pushing out the bad guys and setting up camp for the good. L. salivarius also stimulates a protective immune response in the gut and generates short-chain fatty acids, which are soothing and anti-inflammatory.
  • Saccharomyces boulardii - S. boulardii is one of the few probiotic yeasts that scientists have studied in the context of type 2 diabetes and obesity.19 In animal studies, researchers found that S. boulardii is able to reduce weight, improve liver damage, and minimize inflammation. It safeguards against diarrhea and is able to break down toxins from pathogenic bacteria, including the anthrax toxin. 20

The importance of a healthy gut, and how gut health can affect all areas of your life, can't be overstated. Grasping this truth — that the gut is the source — can bring about an empowering and often radical change.

"You have control over what is happening in your gut. The microbiome is evolving every minute, and it's easily manipulated," says Donna Gates, gut health pioneer and creator of The Body Ecology Diet. "People have said for a long time that disease begins in the gut. Of course, health begins there as well. That's very important to understand because you can fix your gut, and when you do, then you can radiate health. This is always the first place to start: Fix your gut."
