Got a burning question?
Sometimes you just have questions. That’s why we’re here.
What does a probiotic juice shot do for you?
All of our probiotic shots provide a unique, functional dose of goodness for your body. This is simple: each shot provides 1 billion CFUs of probiotics delivered in deliciously blended fruit and vegetable juices to support your digestion and immune system. Keeping your digestive tract healthy by maintaining a proper balance of bacteria in the body is essential to your gut health, which is linked to your immune health, too.
In addition to 1 billion CFUs of probiotics, each shot features unique plant-based functional ingredients! For more information on each of our 8 probiotic shots, click here.
How many probiotic shots can I consume in one day?
Enjoy freely! Each shot provides 1 billion CFUs of probiotics, plus functional fruit and vegetable juices all of which aid in the absorption of the probiotic and keep your digestive tract regular and healthy.
We over at SGSY HQ have our own shot regime for each day based on what’s on the schedule. In fact, a long-standing company tradition is starting all meetings with a juice shot. Our co-founder, Rita, typically begins her day with Digestion, has a midday Beauty shot, an Energy when the 3 o’clock lull rolls around, and an Endurance before hitting the gym after work. It’s totally customizable based on how you’re feeling or your goals for the day! Rita rarely gets sick but when she does, she has at least 3 Immunity shots each day. During cold & flu season we all make sure one of our multiple daily shots is an Immunity shot.
What is a serving size?
No math required here as we keep it simple for you, a serving size is the full bottle. Shake & shoot!
What is a probiotic?
Probiotics are live bacteria that are good for your digestive system and immune health. Probiotics aid in food digestion and nutrient absorption. Yes, it’s true you need prebiotics to process probiotics; this sounds complicated, right? Well good news, we help you out with this already. Prebiotics are found in fruits and vegetables, which are the star ingredients in our probiotic wellness shots. All you need to do – simply shake it, and shoot it! Your body will thank you for all of the amazing nutrients consumed.
What type of probiotic is used?
Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086. This probiotic strain has a patented encapsulation that ensures it survives from the time we place it in the bottle, to the time you enjoy the shot.
Are your products organic?
Yes! Our Probiotic Shots are all Certified Organic.
Can kids and mothers-to-be drink your products?
Yes! Our products all undergo HPP. This process kills the bacteria and makes it safe to consume by pregnant moms and kids.
Are there preservatives or additives found in your products?
No! We do not add any preservatives, emulsifiers, additives, gums, etc. Our ingredients are simple and transparently stated on the label: fruits and vegetables only. All nutrients and sugars are naturally derived from the fruit or vegetable ingredient found on the product label.
Why does the juice separate?
This is our additive-free story. To keep juice from settling, some manufacturers will use something called a “suspending agent”. This also falls under the name of “gums,” emulsifiers, or hydrocolloids. Ultimately, these don’t deliver a nutritional benefit – so they didn’t make the cut for our quality ingredients.
What is cold-pressed juice?
The fresh fruits and vegetables are pressed using a hydraulic press juicer that applies a tremendous amount of pressure to extract the juice directly from the pulp. This process does not produce heat and therefore does not destroy the nutrients and enzymes found in the raw fruits and vegetables. For more information on our process, click here.
What are the main benefits of cold-pressed juice?
As the juice is never heated, the good stuff like beta-carotene, Vitamin C, and other nutrients are still naturally present and available for your body. Our body needs these active enzymes to aid in digestion and to help the absorption of other nutrients. These are not found in cooked or processed foods, only raw fruits and vegetables. In addition, each of our probiotic shots serves a unique function – providing energy, a beauty boost, immune system support and much more.
What is HPP?
We love raw juice, but everything that is good in the juice for you is also good for bacteria and can make you very sick. High Pressure Processing (HPP) is a cold processing technique by which our bottles, already sealed in their final package, are introduced into a vessel and subjected to a high level of isostatic pressure transmitted by water. HPP kills the bad while preserving the good. If you have ever snorkeled it’s the same pressure that you feel when you dive underwater. Nothing more.
If you want to geek out… here is more on the process; the bottle of juice goes into a chamber, the chamber is filled with ice cold water, the water keeps coming in to increase pressure. The pressure kills the bacteria and makes our juice safe to drink, while the ice-cold water prevents the juice from heating up and cooking the active enzymes.
