A Little History
The history of probiotics can be traced back nearly 10,000 years with fermented products, such as beer, bread, wine, kefir, kumis, and cheese, frequently being used for nutritional and therapeutic purposes.
Meaning “for life” in Latin, probiotics’ role in health has been showing great promise for a variety of health issues proving that these tiny probiotic microorganisms are an essential for optimal health.
Because of this, in 2009, Bigelow Tea was the first to innovate and overcome the challenge of finding a strain of probiotics hearty enough to survive the high heat of boiling water needed for hot tea. Using GanedenBC30® probiotics was the answer in providing a delicious wellness tea that helps to support gut health.
