Over the last few years we have had the idea of Probiotics thrown at us from every angle. Saying that we need them to help with our digestion and overall state of health. But what exactly are these little creatures and what do they look like? Well, now you know because Giant Microbes have just launched their Giant Microbes Probiotic 5 Pack. Yes, you have guessed it, this is a pack of five mini giant microbes consisting of the following:
Bifidobacterium longum, Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei and Streptococcus thermophilus.
Now try pronouncing these 10 times really fast
What always gets me is that these are bacteria, and we are encouraged to eat them. Why? Well, this is because these are 'probiotic', and that means they are good for you. I still struggle with the thought of purposely swallowing live squirming wriggling bacteria. But the government say we should, and they are never wrong are they?
These would make an awesome gift for anyone collecting giant microbes or anyone who works in the diet and nutrition sector or for any educational purposes.
