FAQs for Vita Biosa
About Vita Biosa
WHAT IS VITA BIOSA?
Vita Biosa is a line of liquid probiotics that are fermented with 10 different live cultures and fortified with medicinal plants. Our unique, small-batch fermentation process enhances the bio-availability of the fortifying micro-nutrients for maximum immunological effect.
WHATS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE VITA BIOSA PRODUCTS?
Each Vita Biosa product has been fortified with different medicinal plants and therefore offer a unique selection of micro-nutrients.
Original have a proven track record of stabilizing hormones and metabolism, strengthen the immune system and offer overall natural healing more cost effectively and with fewer side effects.
Chaga mushroom contains a long list of nutrients, minerals and vitamins including potassium, magnesium, sodium, calcium, chloride, phosphorus, iron, zinc, selenium, manganese as well as K1, B1, B2, B3, B12 and D2 (Ergosterol).
Milk Thistle is commonly used to treat liver problems. The active ingredients in Milk Thistle also acts as a powerful antioxidant and therefore helps reduce the production of free-radicals, creating a detoxifying effect.
Honey Tea has antiseptic and antibacterial properties and yields a liquid probiotic which is very gentle not only in taste but also in effect.
WHY IS VITA BIOSA FERMENTED?
Vita Biosa extracts the micro-nutrients from medicinal plants through fermentation. The combination of the micro-nutrients and the live probiotic cultures is what makes Vita Biosa the ideal liquid probiotic.
IS VITA BIOSA A LIVE PRODUCT?
Just like all fermented food that has not been pasteurized, Vita Biosa is full of live bacteria. When exposed to warmth and energy, live bacteria wake up, multiply, metabolize and begin to harmonize in its new environment.

WHAT IS THE DAILY RECOMMENDED DOSAGE?
30 ml or 1 oz is the recommended daily dosage.
Some or all can be consumed before or with breakfast. Alternately, the dosage can also be split up and consumed before meals and/or before bed. The younger you are the less you may need. The older you are, the more you may benefit from increasing your dosage. Feel free to experiment. Vita Biosa is perfectly safe. Your body will tell you (i.e., with bloating, gas, discomfort) when you are taking too much or too little (i.e., cold, flu, unwell).
Mix 30 ml of Vita Biosa into your smoothie, in a glass with a little water or juice or drink it straight up.
WITH OR WITHOUT MEALS?
Some prefer to take with meals and some prefer to take it in between. Most take it on an empty stomach, first thing in the morning before hunger manifests.

WHY USE VITA BIOSA?
The world is awakening to the power of fermented foods.
Improves nutrient absorption
Aids in digestion
WHY IS VITA BIOSA EFFECTIVE?
The fermentation yields a pH adjusted drink like vinegar. It not only offers its own suite of health benefits including killing harmful bacteria, fighting inflammation and supporting good cardiovascular health it is also the perfect delivery media for the live probiotic bacteria. When successfully delivered to the smaller intestines, maximum benefit is guaranteed as nutrients are absorbed and waste is excreted.
The Science on Probiotics
WHATS THE SCIENCE SAYING ABOUT PROBIOTICS?
The science confirming the positive health effect of probiotics is growing exponentially in not only depth but also in breadth. It has been known to directly aid digestive health for a long time and indirectly support the immune system, fight inflammation and improve metabolic processes in the whole body. Now multiple sources are researching and documenting the positive impact of probiotics on mental health including fighting anxiety, depression and supporting increased confidence.
ARE ALL PROBIOTICS THE SAME?
Your bile and stomach-acid are designed to break down the food you eat. At the same time, it also challenges the probiotic microbes that need to reach the intestinal tract alive and ready for action. To survive the perilous journey through your stomach, freezer dried powders are coated with a tough, outside capsule. The capsule makes it difficult even for the gut and its micro flora to digest which is important to deliver the friendly microbes to the intestines.
Vita Biosa uses a proprietary fermentation process that yield a pH adjusted liquid similar to vinegar. The vinegar not only supports live, bio-active microbes but is also the only effective delivery media that helps live probiotic cultures survive the perilous journey through the gut into the intestines.
HOW IS VITA BIOSA MADE?
Vita Biosa is created through a proprietary fermentation process. The fermentation process is designed to create a community where a complex blend of 10 different live probiotic cultures can harmonize, multiply and metabolize. The fermentation process is controlled by temperature and monitored for pH (acidity level). The low pH creates an environment that prevents the development of harmful bacteria and acts as a natural preservative.
IS VITA BIOSA NATURAL?
Vita Biosa is 100% natural & organic and contains no fillers, flavours or non-active ingredients. Every ingredient not only contributes to the therapeutic power of Vita Biosa but also contributes instrumentally to the fermentation process.
HOW MUCH VITA BIOSA SHOULD I USE?
30 ml or 1 oz is the recommended daily dosage. Some or all can be consumed before or with breakfast. Alternately, the dosage can also be split up and consumed before meals and/or before bed. The younger you are the less you may need. The older you are, the more you may benefit from increasing your dosage. Feel free to experiment. Vita Biosa is perfectly safe. Your body will tell you (i.e., with bloating, gas, discomfort) when you are taking too much.
WHAT IS A PROBIOTIC?
According to the WHO, Probiotics are “live microorganisms that when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host.”
Different probiotics have been shown to treat or prevent a wide variety of health issues.
Certain Health Benefits are common to all Probiotics (Core Benefits):
Regulation of intestinal transitNormalization of perturbed microbiotaTurnover of enterocytesCompetitive exclusion of pathogensColonization resistanceShort-Chain fatty acid production
Some probiotic effects are found only among specific species of probiotics1:
Vitamin synthesisGut-barrier reinforcementBile salt metabolismEnzymatic activityNeutralization of carcinogens
Lastly, certain benefits may only be found among specific strains of bacteria1:
Neurological effectsImmunological effectsEndocrinological effectsThe production of bio-actives
