Vibrant Health Maximum Vibrance is a multi probiotic supplement but not only does it contain 25 billion colony forming units of probiotics, it also contains an abundance of green super foods. It is the "improved" version of the old Green Vibrance product.
This supplement is almost a health food store in a bottle - that's how many organic green ingredients there are within this powder.
87 different grass juice powders, vegetables and fruits
6g of fiber
but first the probiotics
That's right - 25 billion probiotics from 12 different strains.
Lactobacillus acidophilus HA-122 2.5 billion - very acid resistant so survives well through the stomach to the small intestine, involved in the production of B vitamins (niacin, folic acid, and pyridoxine)
L rhamnosus HA-111 2.5 billion - helps prevent vaginal and urinary tract infections and Clostrididium difficile induced diarrhea.
L rhamnosus B, HA-114 2.5 billion - helps prevent vaginal and urinary tract infections and Clostrididium difficile induced diarrhea.
L paracasei HA-108 2.5 billion
L plantarum HA-119 2.5 billion - Lactobacillus plantarum is not a human strain but is from plants. A very valuble probiotic, able to block bad bacteria and metabolize fibers, such as onion, garlic, wheat, oat, rye, artichoke, bananas, and yeast.
L helveticus HA-128 0.5 billion
Bifidobacterium breve HA-129 2.5 billion helps decrease intestinal permeability, improves intestinal microflora, and has a positive effect on the intestinal immune system.
B longum HA-135 2.5 billion - helps lower the PH of the intestines, thereby making the region undesirable for harmful bacteria. Also produces B vitamins.
B bifidum HA-132 1.25 billion - Studies show that disturbances of intestinal flora in connection with peristalsis disorders and liver problems are usually related to the restriction or disappearance of B. bifidum. Shortens duration of colds.
Lactococcus lactis HA-136 2.5 billion
Propioinibacterium shermanii HA-182 2.5 billion
Streptococcus thermophilus HA-110 0.75 billion
Not all of these probiotics will take up residence in your gastrointestinal tract. Some just pass through BUT - as they are passing through - they are strenthening your immune system and health.

Even its fans admit this isn't the best tasting probiotic supplement in the world! But - come on - you know it's doing you a power of good so dress it up and you can make it acceptable.
You don't really believe all these super sweet so-called "health" drinks are anything of the sort, do you? Beneficial green juices are supposed to be - shall we say - challenging!
Unfortuunately here in New Zealand I can't buy it through Amazon so the folk at Vibrant Health were kind enough to send me some so that I could taste it for myself.
It wasn't as bad as I was expecting after having read some of the comments! It has a grass like flavor. I drink it simply mixed with water. Isn't the best thing I've ever tasted but it certainly isn't the worst.
It's doing you a power of good - you simply need to just drink it down knowing that you're giving every cell in your body a treat.
Here are a few suggestions from folk who have loved what it did for them and so experimented to make it more palatable.
One scoop with 4 strawberries, a few blueberries, 2 table spoons of yogurt, 4 baby carrots, a small piece of celery, and a cup of water.
One scoop blended with almond milk, a few almonds, organic raw cocoa powder, raw antioxidant honey, a bit 'o kelp (a tiny bit, mind you), and organic vanilla extract.
One scoop in power protein shakes and also in fresh juicing.
One scoop with a banana, OJ, and a scoop of Trader Joe's frozen plain yogurt.
Mixed with V8 Fusion.
Mixed with protein powder, peanut butter, Raw Agave, cinnamon, golden flaxmeal, & Cod Liver Oil to make your very personal protein meal.
Just add to water - yep - some folk think it tastes just fine with water alone!
Worried that your child is not getting all the goodness from food that you would like?
It can be an uphill battle sometimes trying to get kids to eat the foods that you know are good for them.
Green Vibrance junior is made specifically for kids aged 3 years to 12 years. It contains 9 billion probiotics from a diverse range of species.
The dosage varies from one third of a scoop for littlies up to a full scoop for the 9 to 12 years group.
Buy Green Vibrance Junior/Green Apple. This is a powder that you simply mix with fruit juice or apple sauce or something similar.
Along with all those probiotics there are organic greens and freeze dried grass juices (wheat, alfalfa, barley and oat).
Plus all the vegetables like kale and brussel sprouts and spinach - all the greens that YOU know are good for them but have a hard time convincing them!
As well as a generous dose of all the berries - blackberry, blueberry, strawberry, raspberry, cranberry - and yet more fuits.
