A healthy digestive system is one with the optimal balance of good bacteria (microbiome). This balance is vital for maintaining a strong immune system, regulating your metabolism, effective digestion, vitamin production and bowel health. Too often the stresses of modern life or exposure to antibiotics can upset your microbiome. Puraz Probiotic+ has been carefully formulated to restore this balance. This 18-strain broad spectrum probiotic blend has been selected for effectiveness and stability. Puraz Probiotic + is a potent blend, helping to nourish and support your microbiome for overall feelings of wellness and digestive health. Puraz Probiotic+ is a peach flavoured probiotic collagen powder with the added power of Livaux® – a well-researched NZ made prebiotic, particularly helpful for digestive support.
THE POWER OF LIVAUX®
Livaux® is a whole food prebiotic extracted from NZ gold kiwifruit. Prebiotics nourish the gut bacteria and support a healthy, well-functioning gastrointestinal system. Livaux® specifically stimulates production of beneficial Faecalibacterium prausnitzii (F. prau), a bacterial species which can be out of balance in the gut microflora. Studies on Livaux® and F. prau report that increasing levels of it correlate with general feelings of wellness. Livaux® recently won ‘Prebiotic ingredient of the year’ award (Nutraingredients USA Awards 2020).
SPORE-FORMING BACILLUS COAGULANS
Bacillus coagulans is an exceptionally hardy spore-forming probiotic, which survives exposure to gastric acids and bile, then proliferates in the colon and nourishes beneficial gut bacteria, thereby promoting a healthy balance in the gut microbiome.
POWERFUL, 18 STRAIN PROBIOTIC
As well as the highly regarded Livaux® and Bacillus coagulans, Puraz Probiotic+ contains an alginate stabilised, high potency, broad spectrum probiotic blend:
- Lactobacillus plantarum
- Lactobacillus rhamnosus
- Lactobacillus casei
- Lactobacillus fermentum
- Lactobacillus reuteri
- Lactobacillus acidophilus
- Lactobacillus paracasei
- Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus
- Lactobacillus gasseri
- Lactobacillus helveticus
- Lactobacillus salivarius
- Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis
- Streptococcus thermophilus
- Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis
- Bifidobacterium longum
- Bifidobacterium breve
- Bifidobacterium bifidum
This blend contributes 29 billion CFU live bacteria per dose, with B. Coagulans adding another billion. Due to its exceptional durability, B.Coagulans works best at this lower dose. Puraz Probiotic + has a total count of 30 billion CFU per serving. This is exceptionally high for a powdered probiotic.
WITH ADDED BENEFITS OF HYDROLYZED COLLAGEN PEPTIDES
The amino acids in hydrolyzed collagen support the integrity and health of the connective tissues throughout the digestive tract.

How does Puraz Probiotic+ work?
The main ingredients are probiotics and a prebiotic. The probiotics are actual live organisms which colonise the large intestine helping to restore diversity to the ‘microbiome’ or bacteria which live there. When these bacteria are out of balance (a condition called ‘dysbiosis’) a variety of symptoms may arise such as bloating, gas, painful digestion, diarrhoea or constipation as well as just general lack of wellness and dysregulated immunity. Dysbiosis usually happens when something has disrupted the natural balance, allowing unhelpful bacteria to thrive and killing off the good guys. Things that could do this are antibiotics, surgery, medications, food poisoning or a restricted or overly-processed diet. The probiotic helps shove things back toward healthy diversity and the prebiotic helps keep it that way. A good probiotic can also help fight any pathogenic bacteria that may be resident in the gut. The prebiotic not only nourishes the probiotics while they are in the jar, but helps feed beneficial bacteria once consumed. The kiwifruit fibre also absorbs water and may relieve constipation and improve bowel movements through this action.
How long will it take for Probiotic to start working? What will I notice/feel?
It depends on why you are taking it and on many individual factors. You may notice a decrease in bloating, gas, pain and improved bowel movements as well as just feeling more well with increased energy. Probiotics in general only work while you are taking them, so if the root cause of the dysbiosis is not addressed, the problem will recur when you stop taking the probiotic. The prebiotic may have a longer lasting effect as it nourishes existing good bacteria. To maintain a healthy biome over the long term, whether taking probiotics or not, it is suggested that daily nutrition contains a variety of whole plant foods, aim for 30 different plant foods every week.
How do I take Puraz Probiotic?
Stir & dissolve one levelled scoop in a glass of water, once daily. One scoop can be added to foods or fruit juices or cold beverages. The scoop is included inside the container
Can I take Probiotic+ if I’m pregnant?
Yes, although as with anything you’re introducing while pregnant, it is best to check with your health provider.
What is special about Probiotic+?
Probiotic+ contains a mix of regular vegetative bacteria and the spore-former b. coagulans. For cost reasons most probiotics contain one or the other and in lower doses. We are not aware of another collagen probiotic that contains both types of probiotic and that delivers 30 billion live bacteria. B. coagulans is acid, bile and heat stable and exists in a spore state within the product, while the other bacteria are in a stabilised vegetative state. Probiotic+ contains Livaux which is a natural prebiotic made from NZ grown gold kiwifruit. We do not use cheap, imported polysaccharides (such as inulin) as prebiotics.
Whats the difference between a Prebiotic and a Probiotic?
Probiotics are foods (or supplements) that contain live bacteria in sufficient quantities to provide a health benefit. When you eat foods that contain probiotics they make their way down into your gut, where there is literally an ecosystem of bacteria working hard to help your body stay well. Prebiotics are fibres that feed the healthy gut bacteria and are important in maintaining a balanced gut. They lay the groundwork for the probiotics to flourish. If probiotics were the flowers in a garden, prebiotics would be the soil those flowers thrive in.
What is Livaux?
Livaux is the prebiotic component of our gut supplement a natural ingredient derived entirely from non-GMO New Zealand gold kiwifruit. Livaux restores F.prau (Faecalibacterium prausnitzii) which is an intestinal bacteria for microbiome balance
What is the Microbiome?
The microbiome is defined as the collective genomes of the microbes (composed of bacteria, bacteriophage, fungi, protozoa and viruses) that live inside and on the human body.
