Our Cultures

What are probiotic cultures and how do they work?

Probiotics contain live microorganisms and when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit. Our probiotic cultures are proven to support digestive and immune health and have passed a number of rigorous clinical trials.

What is unique about the cultures in Biomel?

Biomel is made with a unique strain of lactic acid producing bacteria that is proven to support digestive and immune health. Each serving of Biomel contains over 1 billion CFUs [colony-forming-units] that quickly multiply as they enter your digestive system.

Our strain is unique in many ways:

  • proven to support digestive and immune health and has passed a number of rigorous clinical trials
  • created with a protective spore that ensures it survives the journey through your gut so that it can populate the intestine where it’s needed most
  • built to thrive - once our cultures arrive in your gut the good bacteria quickly multiply and outcompete the bad, improving the diversity in your microbiome
  • 10 X stronger than yoghurt and kefir cultures
  • a dairy-free lactic-acid producing bacteria - L+ lactic-acid has anti-inflammatory properties which allow for an overall healthier gut and immune system

What is the benefit of drinking Biomel?

Regular consumption of Biomel helps restore your intestinal flora and replace bad bacteria with good cultures, strengthening your immune and digestive systems. Our cultures also help break down amino acids which help with protein absorption.  Biomel is perfect for anyone looking to improve their gut health and for people with tricky digestive issues, like IBS.

 

Drinking Biomel

How much Biomel should I drink?

We recommend drinking one to two servings of Biomel a day, to maximise the health benefits. You should start to feel the effects of a healthier gut after two weeks.

Any more than one serving a day is perfectly safe and delicious too. Our shots contain one serving of Biomel and our larger bottles contain four.

When should I drink Biomel?

You can drink Biomel at any time during the day.

We cannot offer medical advice but having probiotics on an empty stomach may speed transition into the intestines.

We love having a Natural Biomel in the morning over our cereal and a flavoured shot as a guilt-free afternoon snack or evening pick me up!

Should I buy the larger or smaller bottles?

There's no difference aside from the size of the bottles. Our larger bottles contain 4 servings of Biomel (there’s a portion tracker on the side) and the shots contain one serving - so you can try whichever you like!

Biomel should be consumed within 2 days of opening so it’s best to only purchase our larger bottles if you will be consuming more than one portion of Biomel a day or sharing the bottle with someone else.

My Online Order

We aim to ship Biomel within two business days after orders are placed. 

For Saturday delivery, orders must be placed by 5pm the previous Thursday. 

I would like to drink Biomel every day, how much should I order online?

Our online orders are shipped with 18+ days self-life. If you would like to purchase a month’s worth of Biomel, we would recommend ordering twice a month. Making your second order a few days before you are about to run out of your first.

 

Packaging and Recycling 

Is Biomel recyclable?

Our bottles are specifically designed to be recyclable.

As Biomel must be kept as cool throughout delivery, our online orders arrive with cool packs and a chiller bag. The cardboard box used in your order is completely recyclable. The plastic around the cool packs are made from recyclable material – please check your local recycling and remove the water before putting it in the bin. The foil chiller bags are not yet recyclable.

For now, you’re welcome to keep hold of the cool packs and foil bags. Below are some suggestions of how to re-use them.

·       Lining picnic bags and keeping food chilled/warm on the go
·       Keeping drinks cool
·       Making ice packs or ice baths/injuries
·       Using the foil bag to shield windscreens from the sun

If you’d like to avoid ordering online to reduce waste we recommend picking up Biomel at one of our Stockists (details above).
