Why Make Your Own Homemade Probiotics vs Taking A Supplement?

Nerd Organics top five reasons to make your own homemade probiotics vs taking a supplement:

  1. Making your own homemade probiotics is more cost effective.  The average high quality probiotic supplement costs $40-$50 for a month supply.  With the Nerd Organics homemade probiotics kit, you have the ability to create an unlimited supply of gut healing probiotic strains.
  2. The potency and effectiveness in one serving of the resulting probiotics from our homemade probiotics kit is equal to the potency of an entire bottle of probiotic supplements.
  3. Probiotic supplements are not FDA regulated.  There could be anything in the pills your taking and nobody would know otherwise.  Live cultures cannot survive for extended durations on a grocery store shelf.   With our homemade probiotics kit you can observe & taste the changes occurring on a daily basis.
  4. Through my own tests I have proved that most probiotic supplements cultures are dead.  Your paying for dead cultures.    I’ll create another post soon describing how you can test your probiotic supplements for live cultures.
  5. The gratification that comes with creating your own homemade gut healing cultures that will help with your family’s overall health.

Fermented foods not only give you a wider variety of beneficial bacteria, they also give you far more of them, so it’s a much more cost effective alternative. Here’s a case in point: It’s unusual to find a probiotic supplement containing more than 10 billion colony-forming units. But when my team actually tested fermented vegetables produced by probiotic starter cultures, they had 10 trillion colony-forming units of bacteria. Literally, one serving of vegetables was equal to an entire bottle of a high potency probiotic! So clearly, you’re far better off using fermented foods.
