The Wolfe Clinic’s other most popular product, along with Royal Tea. It’s a soil-based probiotic.
What Are Probiotics? Probiotics are naturally occurring bacteria found in our digestive system. They are often ingested when a person eats yogurt, pickles, or even high-quality dark chocolate.
How Do They Work? Probiotics are friendly micro-organisms that help establish the balance of good and bad bacteria in your system.
Benefits of Royal Flora
Have you recently taken antibiotics? Probiotics can help restore the good bacteria that were lost.
Do you suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome, infectious diarrhea, or urinary tract infections? Certain strains of probiotics have demonstrated positive results in treating diarrhea and helping regulate bowel movements, relieving bloating, pain and gas. Others are adept at preventing and fighting off unwelcome bacteria and fungi that cause urinary tract infections.
How is RF different than other probiotics? It’s expensive
Instead of a more traditional lactic acid-based probiotic such as those found in yogurt and fermented foods, Royal Flora contains soil-based organisms (SBOs). These beneficial SBOs are more stable and better able to survive the acidic environment of the stomach. They are effective colonizers that crowd out pathogens and harmful bacteria in your bowel.
What are Soil-based organisms (SBOs)?
SBOs are naturally consumed when a person eats fresh, organically-grown foods from healthy soil. Unfortunately, today’s modern food processing techniques destroy most of these beneficial organisms.
Reintroducing SBOs into our bodies can help to regulate digestion and boost our immune systems, protecting us from bacterial and fungal infections.
Royal Flora has a lower CFU count than some probiotics at about 28,000,000/g.
However: Soil-based organisms are ‘endospore-forming’ bacteria, which are naturally hardier and better able to withstand the challenging environment of the stomach. They are much more likely to make it to the small intestine intact, and need less CFUs to do so. Plus, it eliminates the need for special coatings or manufacturing techniques that are used to deliver lactic acid-based bacteria.
The Royal Flora formula’s efficacy isn’t measured in CFUs. Instead of focusing on the CFU count, we focus on how it repopulates the gut with good bacteria and sustains itself.
- It lives in its own natural food source
- The organisms have a natural symbiotic relationship
- The organisms are viable and know how to communicate to various organs in the body
- It is a natural chelating agent
- The humic/fulvic acids provide essential minerals/trace elements that are building block for activation of digestive enzymes
Can shipping the RF in super hot weather damage it?
Like all products, for highest potency, it is best to store at room temperatures. However, the SBOs are extremely hardy and can withstand high temperatures for short periods of 5-7 days without any issue. Prolonged heat for weeks would weaken its potency over time.
From where is the soil used to harvest the SBOs sourced?
It’s a trade secret, but it is mined 6-7000 feet from within a mountain terrain in the US. That’s all we know.
What makes a good maintenance dose?
Depends on the user. Tends to be about 1000 – 2000mg daily depending on eating/drinking habits. Less if good habits; more if not so good habits.
