Advanced Liquid Delivery
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. If a finished product contains more than a strain, each strain is typically grown in pure culture then blended at time of packaging. SCD Essential Probiotics is fundamentally different because the selected strains are grown in “consortia,” a process of co-growth that combines multiple strains during production. Therefore, each strain develops while interacting with other strains.
Through their proprietary manufacturing process, the microorganisms become a small eco system, much more resilient and capable of working together synergistically. This methodology is similar to how microorganisms survive in the natural environment. In nature, strains never exist in isolation or pure culture. They are always interacting with other strains.
How SCD Essential Probiotics Consortia Technology Works
Everyone has a digestive tract populated by a microbial ecology. Everyone is not born with many intestinal ‘helpers’ or good bacteria. Instead they must be introduced into our system via the food we eat and drink.
Try as you might, you don’t always make the healthiest food choices and that can be lead to an imbalance in your ecology – more bad bacteria than good – which can lead to a number of digestive issues. The use of antibiotics and certain medical conditions can also cause a reduction of healthy digestive microflora. The repetitive introduction of beneficial probiotics found in SCD Essential Probiotics will ensure that healthy microbes dominate the harmful ones.
Is it normal for the probiotics supplement bottle to expand?
Yes, the bottle may expand when stored in warmer than room temperature environments. This probiotic contains live bacteria involved in a fermentation process and slightly higher temperatures may cause bottle to expand. You may hear a light pop when opening an expanded bottle, so please open with care. Store at room temperature out of direct sunlight.
Is it ok to take if I see white flakes floating in product?
SCD Essential Probiotics is 100% Natural. Ingredient settling or floating may occur and does not impact product quality. Shake gently before use.
What are the possible side effects of SCD Essential Probiotics?
Some gas and discomfort may result as the microbes in this probiotics supplement work to balance your digestive system. If discomfort persists, reduce dosage or discontinue use.
Should I keep SCD Essential Probiotics in the refrigerator?
SCD Essential Probiotics can be stored in the refrigerator. However, for the microbes to perform at their best SCD Essential Probiotics should be consumed while at room temperature. For that reason they recommend not storing it in the refrigerator and in a temperate environment out of direct sunlight.
When should I take Essential Probiotics?
Essential can be taken at anytime. The reason why some say to take it away from meals is to keep the acid of the stomach from killing all the bacteria. SCD Essential Probiotics is concentrated and strong so, even though some microbes die, the majority survive and get where they need to go!
Is it OK to use for infants?
Their label directs to give 1 teaspoon dosage to children two and older. For children under two, please consult your physician.
Are there vitamins that can be found in Essential Probiotics?
Yes. Lab results show trace levels of many vitamins, enzymes and minerals. However, these levels are not significant enough to include in the list of ingredients.
Is SCD Essential Probiotics suitable for vegetarians and vegans?
SCD Essential Probiotics is suitable for vegetarians. No Animal derived products are used in the culturing or production of SCD Essential Probiotics.
About SCD Probiotics
Providing Organic Probiotic Technology for a Sustainable Future
SCD Probiotics is a life sciences company researching, developing and manufacturing natural probiotic products based on the principles of Consortia Probiotics Technology. SCD Probiotics is fundamentally different from other products because their probiotic strains are grown in “consortia”, in a process of co-growth that combines multiple strains during production. Ultimately, through the proprietary consortia culturing processes, the microorganisms become a small ecosystem — much more resilient and working together synergistically. This methodology is more similar to how microorganisms actually survive in the natural environment.
SCD makes probiotics for a variety of human, animal and environmental applications in a new, state-of-the-art fermentation and bottling facility in Kansas City’s West Paseo District. These all natural, probiotic products used in agriculture, industrial, home & garden, human health, livestock, aquaculture and tannery industries, are distributed to SCD’s licensee network and used by customers in every corner of the globe.
SCD Probiotics has been marketing and selling probiotic products globally since it was founded in 1998, by Matthew Wood. Wood went on to earn a master’s degree at the University of Ryukyus in Okinawa, Japan, specializing in probiotics research. Like Henry Ford, Steve Jobs and the Wright brothers, Wood then started SCD Probiotics from a garage. That shoestring operation in Columbia has grown into an international success with dozens of employees, towering 76,000 gallon fermentation tanks, a 30 percent increase in sales from 2011 to 2013, a production volume increase of 229 percent from 2012 to 2013, kudos from governors and government ministers and a simple yet sophisticated licensing program worthy of companies many times larger than his.
His mother, an artist and founder of the Union Hill Arts Gallery in Kansas City, died of leukemia when he was just 18, cause unknown. Wood theorizes it was likely not one but many factors to blame, such as the volatile organic compounds found in paints and the DDT widely used in the 1950s and 60s on commercial crops, in gardens, for urban mosquito eradication, even domestic pest control.
“I got into biology, agriculture, health, because of what happened to my mother,” he says. How we grow the food we put into our bodies, process the water we drink and flush, the fabrics we wear, can affect our health, sometimes dramatically. “And now, with our technology, it helps improving our health and reducing pollution which improving people’s lives who works in the polluted industry. It’s rewarding to have it come full circle.”
SCD Probiotics complies with the current Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) Guidelines enforced in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration. GMP guidelines provide a system of processes, procedures and documentation to assure the product produced has the identity, strength, composition, quality and purity that it is represented to possess. In addition, many of SCD Probiotics products are listed by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) for use in certified organic production.
