Why We're Different

People who know me know I love to talk about stuff I believe in - often and loudly.

Many times people who know me best are also aware that I talk fast - really fast - and as a result just believe me when I tell them things.  Which is usually ok because when your idea of an awesome night is locking yourself in your den and catching up on African commerce reports, you generally can be trusted (or at least that’s my story and I’m sticking to it).

But when it comes to supplements, it’s a different story.  There is no shortage of hucksters, frauds, and even sincere idiots pitching miracle pills (and as I've said before, there is none).  So I thought I’d take a few minutes to run through what makes Jetson different - and by different, I mean “work” better than other probiotics on the market.  So let’s take a look at a few of the particular strains in  Fit  (our summer formulation) and the scientific studies behind each of them.

  • Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM:  Derived from a strain cultured in 1900 in Austria by Dr. Ernst Moro, now comes from our friends at DuPont labs, USA. Here are 14 highly rated studies and one moderately rated one demonstrating clinical linkages to:
  • Bacillus coagulans (SNZ1969): Cultured from an old Japanese strain discovered in 1949 by Dr. O. Nakayama, now from our friends art Sanzyme Biologics in India. Here are 14 clinical studies (unrated) demonstrating clinical linkages to:
    • Heart Health: Cholesterol and lipid levels
    • Oral Health: Gum and mouth ulceration
    • Vaginitis: Some guarding against in-vitro pathogens
    • Immunity: Immunomodulatory activity (this is good)
    • Diarrhea: Reductions for adults and infants.
  • Bifidobacterium lactis (B420): Discovered in 1899 as a dominant in human breast milk (get it - lactis?)  Now, comes from our friends at DuPont (man, we really buddied with DuPont for Fit!)
  • Our powerhouse DE111: This is from our friends at Deerland Enzymes in Georgia, which I’ve already written about extensively here.  

WHEW!  That was a ton to type (but imagine how long it took to research!)

Hopefully now you have some context when I say Jetsons’s strains are not just some generic bacteria sourced from the lowest-bidder, but named, studied (and expensive) strains from the most reputable labs in the world.  As I’ve told any number of media folks, I built Jetson as a product I would want to take - which means it has to be the best. In fact, one could argue that Jetson was really just a way for me to make sure I always have access to the world’s best, freshest, seasonal probiotic - and they might just win that argument :)
