Get Your Daily Dose of Probiotics at BlissBerry









BlissBerry Probiotic Frozen Yogurt

Enjoy Your Daily Bliss!

BlissBerry Yogurt is packed with good-for-you probiotics. If you’ve watched TV recently, you’ve seen everything from yogurt to cereal advertised as containing probiotics. But what exactly are they and why might you need them? Probiotics are strains of live “good bacteria” that may help regulate lactose digestion, boost the immune system, prevent infections in the digestive tract, and control certain colon inflammations. They are believed to be similar to the naturally occurring bacteria found inside your body that regulate digestion.


To incorporate probiotics into your diet, get your daily bliss at a BlissBerry Frozen Yogurt near you.

BlissBerry Provides Vital Active Cultures For Your Body. Get Your Daily Bliss!

With 70-percent of your body’s natural defenses found in the gut, there’s understandably much talk today about the benefits of probiotics. There’s also much hype. It’s important to understand the role that helpful probiotics play as part of a holistic health regimen. To further this understanding, below are some noteworthy facts about probiotics:

Probiotics work because they are live bacteria that need to thrive in the human gut.

Probiotics Need TLC (tender loving care)
Don’t abuse your probiotics. Keep them cool and dry so they will be alive when they get into your body. For best results and for long-term storage, most probiotics need to be kept refrigerated.  BlissBerry Frozen Yogurt is the perfect vehicle for your daily Probiotics delivery in your body.  Get Your Daily Bliss.

Fighting the Good Fight
Probiotics displace and even help kill pathogenic bacteria like salmonella and E. coli.

Don’t Judge a Bacteria by its …
Not all bacteria are bad. In fact, we need good bacteria to survive. These are called “probiotic” bacteria. The word “probiotic” means “for life.”
We’re Overrun – but don’t worry, it’s okay
You have more bacteria in your intestines than there are cells in the rest of your body! The average person has approximately 100 trillion bacteria in their gut which represents ten times more than the number of cells in the body.
If it Quacks like a Duck?

Retail probiotics vary drastically. Some products might not have sufficient numbers of live bacteria in them to make them effective. Also, some products might not be well-cared for, and the number of live bacteria on the label might not be correct. It is important for consumers to look for strains of bacteria that have been researched and have a proven track record of stability and efficacy, such as the DDS-1 strain of L. acidophilus from Nebraska Cultures, Inc.

Weight – are you kidding?

The average human has 2 ­ 4 pounds of bacteria in their body! Within every human being is a flourishing, living colony of both beneficial and pathogenic bacteria. Most of these bacteria reside in the human digestive tract (although some are found elsewhere, like the oral cavity, throat and skin), and perform necessary functions for humans, such as helping break down food.
Healthy Babies are Born with Probiotics!

Healthy humans are born with good bacteria already in their intestines. But due to poor diet, antibiotics, and other factors, we might need a probiotic supplement to maintain the healthy bacteria in our gut as we get older.

Bacteria for Life!
Probiotic bacteria keep you healthy! Not only are good bacteria essential for healthy digestion, there is more and more research showing that good bacteria can help fight “lifestyle” diseases such as tooth decay, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.
Research is Key
Ongoing scientific research is essential! It is important for consumers to look for products backed by quality scientific research. A few case studies or testimonials are not enough; manufactures should be able to show consumers the real, peer-reviewed scientific research that stands behind their products. Nebraska Cultures, Inc., a leader in the probiotics industry for over 30 years, is one such company.

Michael Shahani serves as the Director of Operations at Nebraska Cultures, Inc. He oversees all aspects of manufacturing, new product development, customer service and marketing, as well as coordinates all scientific resources and activities for the company.

I Love My GPS

No need to stop for directions at the next gas station–or the one after that. Handheld navigators are headed for Main Street.

Nearly 30% of American households either have a Global Positioning System device or plan to buy one this year, according to an exclusiveMarketing Daily survey prepared by Synovate.

Similar to other new technologies, early adopters tend to be higher-income. One out of five, or nearly 20% of respondents with incomes of $75,000 or more, said they have a GPS device. About 10% of people earning $25,000 to $75,000 own a GPS, and 3% of people earning under $25,000 have one.

The Marketing Daily/Synovate survey found that nearly half of GPS owners consider safety to be the product’s most important attribute. Other interesting nuggets:

  • Nearly 40% of owners said they get less frustrated because of their GPS
  • 39% have tossed aside navigational aids such as MapQuest and Yahoo Maps
  • 32% said they use printed maps, AAA and compasses less often
  • 27% said they no longer have to ask for directions
  • 15% of owners said their GPS has changed their life.GPS owners are somewhat receptive to receiving marketing information on their GPS systems–but only if they ask for it.

    Among respondents who own a GPS system, 44% said they are interested in having the device guide them to area restaurants and attractions. But 75% said they “would hate it” if their navigator started receiving unsolicited advertising.

    “The GPS is an emerging form of advertising, like wireless and video games. But the companies have to carefully balance revenue potential with infringing on core functionality,” said Ross Rubin, an NPD analyst.
