Vita Biosa Ginger contain the same herbs and lactic acid bacteria as Vita Biosa Original but with an additional 0.5% cold pressed ginger concentrate.

The combination of live probiotic strains, extract of 19 different herbs and organic acids is what makes Vita Biosa truly unique.

What's in it?
Vita Biosa is a unique opportunity to get live probiotics without any dairy. As the product is fermented the probiotics are alive and active from the very beginning. Vita Biosa contains 8 live cultures of lactic acid bacteria, and an average of 2 billion live CFU per serving.
Due to a natural fermentation process, Vita Biosa contains not only live probiotic bacteria, but also the valuable organic acids they produce. These acids lower the pH locally to a level, which inhibits the growth of pathogens and provides optimal conditions for beneficial bacteria.
The 19 organic herbs, specifically selected for their beneficial effect on the digestive system and anti inflammatory properties, release their phyto-active substances; oils, alkaloids, anti-oxidants, natural sugars, acids, vitamins, minerals etc., through the fermentation process which then carries into the product.
What is in Vita Biosa?

What are lactic acid bacteria?
The term “lactic acid bacteria” covers a number of live microorganisms, single or mixed cultures of e.g. lactobacillus bacteria and bifido-bacteria that produce organic acids.
What are organic acids?
Organic acids are derived from organic compounds. These acids are naturally present in the intestines and are formed by e.g. lactic acid bacteria. In Vita Biosa the organic acids are present in the form of lactic acid and acetic acid amongst others.
Does Vita Biosa contain milk?
No. Vita Biosa contains lactic acid bacteria, which is often associated with dairy products. Lactic acid bacteria are so-called, because they convert sugars to organic acids, primarily lactic acid (and acetic acid). So they have nothing to do with milk, and Vita Biosa can be drunk by people with lactose intolerance.
Can I drink too much Vita Biosa?
Vita Biosa only contains natural ingredients, and there is no risk of drinking too much. It is however advised to try out various amounts to see what is right for you. We recommend 20-30ml per day, but if you feel that you would like to drink more, you can easily do so.
Is Vita Biosa Certified Organic?
Yes! Vita Biosa Original, Aronia, Rosehip and Ginger are all certified organic with the Danish State Certified Ecological (Øko-mark) and the EU Eco-Regulation(EC).
Does Vita Biosa contain gluten?
No. None of the ingredients in Vita Biosa contain gluten.
Is it normal that Vita Biosa carbonates?
Yes, it is just as normal, that Vita Biosa carbonates as if it doesn´t. Neither are signs of poorer quality.
When do I drink Vita Biosa?
Vita Biosa can be drunk at any time. Some prefer drinking it on an empty stomach, while others prefer to drink it in relation to meals.
Can I drink Vita Biosa while on antibiotics?
Antibiotics work by killing bacteria, and therefore also the lactic acid bacteria in Vita Biosa. Antibiotics do not however influence the content of organic acids and herbal extract.
Should I drink Vita Biosa as it is, or can I mixed it with something else?
Vita Biosa can easily be mixed with water, juice, smoothies etc. The only thing you should bear in mind is, that lactic acid bacteria feed on the nutrients in the substance (e.g. sugar, which is converted to acids). You should therefore mix it immediately before ingestion.
