About Probiotics

A probiotic isolated from breast milk

Probiotics consist of beneficial bacteria, an essential part of our microbiome, the complex living ecosystem inside us responsible for digestive function, nutrient absorption, inflammation, and immunity. Probiotics can assist in restoring and maintaining a healthy balance of the digestive flora, essential to your overall health and wellbeing particularly during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Probiotics are living organisms which can be fragile if care is not taken. Qiara, is individually sealed in sachets to ensure each single dose retains the maximum number of live microorganisms.

How are Qiara probiotics different?

Most strains of bacteria used in probiotics are derived from bowel flora, whereas, Lactobacillus fermentum CECT5716 in Qiara is originally found in breast milk (and now reproduced in controlled environment).

Being a breast milk probiotic strain, it is part of a group that has been specially selected by the human body as one of its foundation strains.

As our first food, breast milk has the unique ability to interact with the human immune system, delivering strong beneficial effects during our entire life.

Qiara - why a single strain probiotic is better than a multi-strain.

Containing only a single strain probiotic Lactobacillus fermentum CECT5716 Qiara has been heavily researched, and its use and expected outcomes of supported by specific clinical trials.

Companies that choose to provide a ‘broad spectrum’ probiotics that combine multiple strains with multiple product efficacy claims have rarely trialed the strains in that specific combination.

Unless clinical trials have been conducted on the use of these specific combinations of multiple strains, it is not possible to determine how these strains interact or inhibit each other and what effect they may have. More Strains and more ‘billions’ does not mean a better result.
