What is Velobiotics?

Globally patented technology that helps protect good bacteria (Probiotics) through a process known as microencapsulation. This helps  prolong shelf life of probiotics and s hields them from destruction by gastric acid; thus, permitting good bacteria to  reach your gut where they are most useful.

What Are The Culprits?

High Temperature (Heat)

High Temperature (Heat)

Exposure to heat reduces the viability of the good bugs (probiotics)
Gastric acid resistant capsule

Gastric acid resistant capsule

Some capsules pass GI without opening up and end up being passed out in stool
Moisture (Water)

Moisture (Water)

Absorption of moisture activates the probiotics and subsequent death after a while
High stress and degradation of probiotics

High stress and degradation of probiotics

Most delivery processes end up killing the very live bacteria they are protecting
Oxygen / Air

Oxygen / Air

Similarly, air/oxygen will activate the growth of probiotics before consumption
 Use of solvents in micro-encapsulation

Use of solvents in micro-encapsulation

Use of solvents tend to kill the good bugs(probiotics) during the encapsulation process

Global Probiotics Challenges…

Less than 4% of label probiotics actually reaches the gut!

1. Minimum viable cells

According to FAO/WHO recommendations, for a  probiotics to declare claims of health benefits, it must contain a  concentration of 10 6 to 10 7 CFU (Colony Forming Units) of viable  probiotic bacteria.

2. Probiotics shelf-life

There is  gradual deterioration and loss of bacteria while awaiting customer purchase at the shelf due to oxidation and other stress that impacts on the live bacteria.

3. Tolerance of Stomach Acid (pH=2)

Most probiotics do not survive the harsh acidity in the stomach  at pH below 2 (Highly Acidic). Lactobacilli spp. has been shown to only  survive between 30 seconds to several minutes  under these conditions.

SCO2 Microencapsulation Technology

How does this benefit your gut?

Shelf Stability

Shelf Stability

You are guaranteed that the label claim (e.g. 10 Billion CFU) is what you are consuming despite being on the shelf for a few months. 

Acid Tolerance

Acid Tolerance

Protect the probiotics and make them resistant to the low gastric pH which indiscriminately eliminates all bacteria, good or bad. 

Heat Stability

Heat Stability

Probiotics are protected from exposure to heat, moisture and elements, that would otherwise destroy them before consumption.

2. Shelf-life Stability of Probiotics

2. Shelf-life Stability of Probiotics

Velobiotics™ allows the  supply of a stable probiotic formulation in areas where proper storage, refrigeration or degradation at room temperature is uncommon.

3. Resistance to Stomach Acid

3. Resistance to Stomach Acid

Velobiotics encapsulation matrix is stable at low pH (acidic), but disintegrates at higher pH (alkaline), triggering the  release of the probiotics in the colon where they are most needed.
