Benefits of Probiotics

Benefits of Probiotics

Probiotics are live bacteria that can improve digestion and are good for overall health. Taking care of your gut may be one of the single most important things you can do for your health. The right type of bacteria in your gut has been linked to numerous health benefits, including weight loss, improved digestion, enhanced immune function, better skin, and a reduced risk of many diseases.

NuGo Cares

NuGo Free Dark Chocolate Crunch bar now gives you that benefit. Enhanced with GanedenBC 30 probiotic, real dark chocolate NuGo Free now supports a healthy digestive and immune system. The gluten-free vegan bar offers a delicious option without soy.

How Does It Work?

GanedenBC30 is a spore-forming probiotic – which means that, similar to a seed, its genetic material is protected by a hard shell. This spore safeguards the probiotic from the heat, cold and pressure of manufacturing, allows for stability during the product shelf life and protects the cells from the acid and bile they are exposed to during transit through the digestive system. Once it is safely inside the small intestine, the probiotic germinates and colonizes to provide benefits. GanedenBC30 survives conditions other probiotics can’t and that’s why it can be consumed in a variety of foods and beverages.

Protein + Probiotics

Studies show that GanedenBC30 supports the body’s utilization of protein and also enhances vitamin and mineral absorption. Ganeden BC30 when mixed with protein is able to protect muscles from damage resulting in decreased recovery time, decreased soreness, reduced swelling, increased power and decreased blood kinase. This is great news for athletes who can receive even more benefits with the addition of probiotics in our NuGo Free bar. GanedenBC30 also enhances utilization of vitamins and minerals including Calcium, Iron, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B5 and Vitamin B12.


Different probiotic stains are effective at different levels so it is not possible to provide a standard daily ‘dose’ for all probiotics. For Ganeden BC30 specifically, 500 million CFUs are recommended for immune support. Each NuGo Free Bar has 500 million CFU’s per serving.

All sorts of lifestyle factors, especially the foods you eat, have been shown to affect the gut bacteria. Living a healthy lifestyle, getting good sleep, and eating real food with lots of fiber is the key. In many cases, probiotic foods and supplements can be helpful as well. If you have a medical condition, you should consult your doctor before taking a probiotic supplement.

Dark Chocolate Crunch

NuGo Free Dark Chocolate Crunch is coated in luscious, REAL Dark Chocolate made with natural cocoa beans. Coco beans provide healthy antioxidants and powerful Stearic acids which may protect against heart disease, reduce blood pressure and lower bad (LDL) cholesterol. Other nutrition bars use chocolate flavorings with unhealthy vegetable oils, which have no health benefits and actually raise bad LDL cholesterol. These fake coatings are waxy and taste overly sweet. Be free to enjoy this delicious, healthy dark chocolate bar while receiving the health benefits of probiotics!
