It can not be stressed enough the vital role that a balance of good bacteria (probiotics) play in our overall health. It is staggering how research links many common illnesses and health issues directly to an imbalance of good bacteria in the digestive system.
Probiotic organisms are live microorganisms thought to be beneficial to the host organism. According to the currently adopted definition by fao/who, probiotics are: “live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host.” Lactic acid bacteria (lab) and bifidobacteria are the most common types of microbes used as probiotics; but certain yeasts and bacilli may also be used. Probiotics are commonly consumed as part of fermented foods with specially added active live cultures, such as in yogurt, soy yogurt, or as dietary supplements.
At the start of the 20th century, probiotics were thought to beneficially affect the host by improving its intestinal microbial balance, thus inhibiting pathogens and toxin producing bacteria. Today, specific health effects are being investigated and documented including alleviation of chronic intestinal inflammatory diseases, prevention and treatment of pathogen-induced diarrhea, urogenital infections, and atopic diseases.
Intestinal flora consists of microorganisms that live in the digestive tract. Intestinal flora’s primary benefit is the energy extraction from the fermentation of undigested food. Intestinal bacteria also play a role in synthesizing vitamins such as vitamin b and k.
On the other hand, the digestive tract also contains pathogenic bacteria that can produce toxins, which have been implicated in such conditions as inflammatory bowel disease and colon cancer. A major factor in health is the balance of bacterial numbers; if the numbers of pathogenic bacteria grow too high, it can be harmful to people. Helpful probiotic cultures compete with pathogenic bacteria assisting in the intestinal balance.
Not all probiotics are created equal. Juice Press carries a special vegan probiotic called ProViotic. ProViotic is a bacteria known as L. bulgaricus glb44. It has been scientifically proven to have strong inhibiting effect over pathogenic bacteria such as E. coli, salmonella and H. pylory in scientific in vitro tests. L. bulgaricus has been shown to survive passage through the digestive tract in sufficient amounts to have beneficial effects on digestive health.
A large percentage of the body’s immune system cells are contained within the digestive tract. Intestinal flora has a continuous and dynamic effect on people’s gut and immune systems. The bacteria stimulate the gut to produce antibodies to bad bacteria. The immune system recognizes and fights harmful bacteria.
ProViotic is a brand of probiotics under the registered trademark brand of ProViotic LLC. The strain of bacteria in ProViotic is GLB44 a.k.a L. bulgaricus, which has been in use in consumer dairy foods for over 100 years and is generally considered safe (GCS) by the FDA. ProViotic is non-allergenic, truly vegan, does not require refrigeration, and will not cause gas. People of all ages can use ProViotic.
Since this sub-species of Lactobacillus Bulgaricus has been safely used in foods for over 100 years with no indications of overdose or side effects, top scientists believe that if it is added to unpasteurized juice it will serve both as natural preservative capable of inhibiting “bad” bacteria and as a way to replenish the healthy bacteria found in our bodies. read more| www.provioticresearch.org | probiotic comparison chart
Pure, Vegan, Powerful
ProViotic is an exceptional probiotic, containing a special strain of the L. Bulgaricus subspecies called GLB44 that is 100% plant-based & vegan, as it is sourced from the snowdrop flower and grown in fresh, raw vegetable juice. It is one of the few probiotic cultures in the world that has a vegan origin: it is sourced from a flower, not from the mammalian gut.
ProViotic is allergen & gluten free, with Ivy League proven effectiveness in inhibiting pathogens like e. coli, salmonella and listeria. All probiotics contain traces of the media in which the culture has been grown. In our manufacturing facility, Proviotic is grown in organic, fresh, raw vegetable juices, which is why Proviotic has traces of only 100% organic vegetable juice. It does not contain milk, soy, wheat, nuts or any other major allergen as defined by the FDA.
We are proud to carry ProViotic exclusively at Juice Press in the form of flavor-free, non-caloric, shelf stable capsules, in addition to including ProViotic in a number of our best-selling juice formulas.
ProViotic and Juice Press
ProViotic has been clinically proven to significantly inhibit the presence of e. coli, salmonella and listeria in fresh, raw juice. Before proviotic, the only way to eliminate these pathogens was to use heat or pressurize, both of which have negative side effects on fresh raw juices. Juice press does not process our juices using these methods, offering a 100% fresh, raw product, and uses ProViotic to enhance the awesome power of the juice. In Europe, ProViotic’s culture has been used in dairy products for decades and is 100% safe.
We believe a crucial part of health and restoration stems from natural balance of good bacteria in your digestive tract.
ProViotic can be consumed by adults, children, and elderly. Raw juice with ProViotic has been and will continue to be a magnificent part of human health. There were always very minor and low risks involved with consumption of raw juices by people with weakened immunity if there were ever pathogens present in the produce supply. The risk has always been manageable. In an effort to bring raw fresh juice more mainstream, and in effort to make its cleansing power more effective in our opinion, we developed the partnership with ProViotic.
We’ve just made fresh raw juice safer from the risk of E. coli and salmonella while enhancing its immune beneficial power and its cleansing power, meanwhile sustaining its alkalizing power and its vitamin potency. Each Juice Press with Proviotic contains 4 billion cfu of Lactobacillus Bulgaricus special strain GLB44 that works in the digestive tract to help keep your immune system healthy. Juice Press just reinventing fresh juice…
In 1912, the New York Times reported that a Bulgarian woman was living at the age of 126 and had a son who was 102 years old, and that one percent of the Bulgarian population was over 100 years of age. This rate of centenarians is 6 times higher than the rate in the US today. Professor Mechikoff investigated the reason for this longevity in the mountain villages of Bulgaria. His conclusion was that it was a result of their daily diet, which included a large consumption of yogurt with a specific probiotic culture. Dr. Stamen Grigorov at the Pasteur Institute in Paris discovered a special kind of lactobacilli was contained in this yogurt and called them Lactobacillus Bulgaricus.
Modern research later uncovered that there are over 100 strains of Lactobacilus Bulgaricus, each with different specific characteristics. ProViotic is the only brand that contains the special L. Bulgaricus strain GLB44. L. Bulgaricus GLB44 has unique properties compared to other Lactobacillus Bulgaricus strains. It is effective in inhibiting pathogenic bacteria, supports a healthy digestive system and maintains digestive balance.
ProViotic is manufactured in a genesis laboratories, world-class manufacturing facility with a perfect historical track record in both quality and safety.
Genesis Laboratories is an FDA registered manufacturer, EFSA (european food and safety authority) certified (allows for products to be sold through eu, subject to regular inspections) and had undergone stringent due diligence to become a Health Canada approved facility for importation into Canada, where there is perhaps the most strict regulation of imports of food supplements.
Harvard Medical School professor Dr. Andrew Onderdonk conducted analyses on ProViotic for 8 months, and throughout microbial testing has never detected the presence of a microbiological contaminant or another quality issue.
ProViotic is subject to FDA scrutiny and approval upon every importation of the product, having passed every detailed check with perfect status.

Some probiotics (not ProViotic) may actually cause gas and bloating. Bacterial gases in the intestines account for almost 75% of flatulence. The strain of bacteria found in ProViotic is of the L. Bulgaricus subspecies and by nature does not cause gas or associated symptoms, as indicated by recent a Cornell University classification document. Most probiotics contain lactic acid bacteria. Lactic acid bacteria are divided into two categories, gas producing and non-gas producing:
1) Homofermentative – good bacteria that do not produce gas during fermentation. ProViotic’s L. Bulgaricus GLB44 is an example of non-gas producing homofermentative bacteria. Two facts that support this classification:
a) Lack of gas during metabolism is actually used as identifier for L. Bulgaricus strains (like ProViotic). In the science community, when they isolate a strain that they think is a L. bulgaricus, they check it for gas production; if there is gas, then it is not a Bulgaricus.
b) You can keep dairy yogurt that contains live cultures of L. Bulgaricus outside the fridge and it will not blow up the plastic container the same way raw juices may expand on their own.
2) Heterofermentative – good bacteria that produce multiple substances during fermentation including co2 gas in many cases. Probiotic bacteria under major brands such as culturelle, biok plus, biogaia, goodbelly, and garden of life all contain heterofermentative bacteria. On top of Proviotic’s non-gas producing classification, a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine indicates that probiotics containing L. Bulgaricus may even relieve abdominal bloating (& potentially other symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome). These findings set the stage for continued scientific research on the alleviating effects of L. Bulgaricus on bloating and related digestive issues.
ProViotic is a “game-changing” probiotic, discovered by our founding partners in a search for a USDA organic, 100% vegan probiotic. We include ProViotic in many of our popular juices because of how important it is to the safety of our raw juices and to enhance our juice’s positive enhancement to your overall immune system. We have the science of the most respected ivy league university behind us as well as a 100 year track record of its use in consumer products! glb44.org

What is Proviotic?
Proviotic is a brand of vegan probiotics sold exclusively through Juice Press
This strain of bacteria ( L. Bulgaricus ) has been in use in consumer dairy foods for over 100 years and is generally considered safe (GCS) by the FDA.
This probiotic is non-allergenic, truly vegan, does not require refrigeration, and will not cause gas. People of all ages can use PROVIOTIC.
Why does Juice Press use Proviotic?
We discovered something that was so simple and yet no one prior to Juice Press ever thought to do this research. "If a probiotic destroys bad bacteria, could our probiotic destroy really bad bacteria such as e coli, listeria and salmonella?" We took this question to an ivy league school and found astonishing conclusions time and time again. Since this sub-species of Lactobacillus Bulgaricus has been safely used in foods for over 100 years with no indications of overdose or side effects, top scientists believe that if it is added to unpasteurized juice it will serve both as a natural preservative capable of inhibiting “bad” bacteria and as a way to replenish the healthy bacteria found in our bodies. read more | www.provioticresearch.org
How many Proviotics should I take a day? Is there an amount that is too many Proviotics?
We recommend taking two capsules of Proviotic daily. However, it is safe in limitless quantities.
Should people take Proviotic daily, or only when they are sick or travelling?
Daily consumption is recommended. While Proviotic’s good bacteria stays in your system for five to fifteen days, the numbers decrease every day unless replenished. Also, our immune system varies depending on multiple factors, including stress level, level of work, and exhaustion. In order to maintain a high number of good bacteria to support a healthy digestive and immune system at all times, it is best to take Proviotic every day.
For how long should Proviotic be taken?
Proviotic should be taken every day. There is no maximum course duration.
What makes Proviotic better than other vegan probiotics?
Proviotic does not contain any major allergens (gluten-free, lactose-free, soy-free, nut-free), as it is grown in vegetable juice sourced from gmo-free farms. Most other probiotics contain traces of animal-based proteins because they are sourced from animals and have to be grown in animal-based solutions. All probiotics carry some of the organic matter in which they’re grown.
Is Proviotic as effective as non-vegan probiotics?
Proviotic’s good bacteria are four to six times larger than other bacteria; therefore, Proviotic has a higher adjusted cfu count and has greater ability to outcompete bad bacteria. Also, Proviotic has been tested against E. coli O157:H7 strain and the results showed that Lactobacillus Bulgaricus GLB44 could significantly inhibit this bacteria. In most cases, the reduction in the numbers of E. coli O157:H7 was above 99%. The broad based activity of Proviotic (GLB44) is unusual among Lactobacillus species and suggests that there are unique cellular components that may account for this activity. See the pathogen inhibition comparison here.
Is Proviotic truly vegan?
Proviotic is sourced from the European snowdrop flower, and flourishes in fresh, raw vegetable juice. Thus, Proviotic is 100% truly vegan.
How is Proviotic made?
Proviotic is sourced from the European snowdrop flower found in the mountains of Bulgaria. The flower is able to survive in cold climates, which helps explain why L. Bulgaricus is able to thrive in cold pressed juice. Only the freshest and healthiest vegetables are selected for juicing. The bacteria are then allowed to grow in the fresh juice, and after 24 hours, the liquid is dehydrated at low temperatures to preserve the full vitality of the probiotic.
If Proviotic was discovered 109 years ago, why is it only starting to be sold now?
Proviotic has been used for 109 years in milk yogurts in Europe and Japan. However, we were the first to discover that this specific probiotic strain was extracted from the snowdrop flower, and that it can be cultivated in vegetable juice.
Is taking a Proviotic pill as effective as consuming foods with probiotics?
It could even be more effective. Ten cups of regular yogurt or 5 oz of Greek yogurt have the same amount of probiotics as one serving of Proviotic. However, while you’re consuming yogurt, you are also consuming animal fat, protein and calories, and you are creating 400 times the carbon emission.
Is it safe to give my child Proviotic?
Proviotic is safe for all ages. The US Department of Health recommends giving probiotic supplements to babies after 8 months of age – before this they should be getting the good bacteria through their mother's milk.
We recommend taking two capsules of proviotic daily, with no maximum course duration; however, it is safe in limitless quantities. While Proviotic’s good bacteria stays in your system for five to fifteen days, the numbers decrease every day unless replenished. Also, our immune system varies depending on multiple factors, including stress level, level of work, and exhaustion. In order to maintain a high number of good bacteria to support a healthy digestive and immune system at all times, it is best to take Proviotic every day.
Yes! Taking Proviotics together with antibiotics will give you either a net benefit of helping out the good flora, or in the worst case scenario the antibiotic may kill our good bacteria, depending on the antibiotic. Taking them together will definitely not do any harm.
In general, our good bacteria is sensitive to antibiotics; thus, if we want to keep it alive, it is better to wait at least three hours after taking antibiotics before taking Proviotic to increase the health benefit. Proviotic becomes most effective after the antibiotic treatment – in the period when the flora is starting to regrow. Having selective inhibition of killing pathogens and not touching the other good flora bacteria, Proviotic is ensuring that the regrowth of the bacteria is skewed towards regrowing mainly good flora bacteria.
