The PERKii Smarts

Why do you need Probiotics?

Probiotic levels can be affected by a wide range of factors including poor diet (too many fats or processed foods or too little fibre), excess stress, toxic substances (including antibiotics) and excess alcohol intake. While a good diet and exercise is the first line of defence, the large demands of the modern-day life can limit our ability to achieve our goals. Understanding the potential benefits of probiotics, can help you consider how adjusting your intake (of probiotics) may best benefit you. 

Why PERKii?

Simply put: we take great probiotics and make them better. Many products use strains that have shown questionable survival rates, dying in the harsh acid environment of the stomach or in some cases, many ‘cultured’ drinks don’t accurately outline any details of the strain or number of probiotics in them. These drinks include kombucha and kefir. We’ve solved that by working with the University of Queensland to create a technology with natural ingredients.

We use PROGEL™ to coat our probiotics, effectively armour-plating them against the stomach acids while also providing a form of prebiotics in their organic seaweed-derived covering. Activated at a microscopic level, this means we can make our probiotics undetectable to taste and ensure more living probiotics make it to the gut where they get to work.

We bottle every PERKii Probiotic Drink with over 1 billion CFUs of Lactobacillus Casei - one of the world's most documented probiotic strains!

Every PERKii flavour is 'Bottled with billions' of probiotics

The journey of a probiotic to the gut is a perilous one. Our probiotics are naturally micro-encapsulated to increase their survival through the stomach and into the gut!

Each 'micro encapsulated' to survive the journey through your stomach

Lactobacillus Casei at an RDA of 1 billion is proven to provide an enhanced immune response and shorten the duration of the common cold!

Built to deliver goodness right where it matters - your gut!

Quality & Quantity

While all probiotics are considered safe and friendly by definition, not all probiotics possess health research and benefits to be considered therapeutic, nor do many drinks carry enough (probiotics) in them to classify as a significant dose. That’s another area where PERKii differs. We dose every bottle with 1 billion CFUs of the Lactobacillus casei strain. One of the world’s most documented probiotic Lactobacillus strains, it has been described in over 90 publications and attributed to beneficial effects in the gastrointestinal and immune system.

The PROGEL™ coating then protects the probiotics on shelf and maximises their delivery to the gut, all for your benefit. Currently there is limited regulation in this area and drinks can often claim to be cultured without substantiating their probiotic nature. In some cases, not even outlining their probiotics and what they may or may not do for you.

The 'probiotics' we use

How is PERKii low in sugar & bitter-free?

Many people think all probiotic drinks need to taste bitter (like kombuchas and kefirs) or have a large amount of sugar (yogurts, fermented milk shots) to maintain appeal. NOT TRUE. An effect of the organic PROGEL™ microgels provides a stable environment for the probiotics and controls fermentation and release of acid by-products in the living cultures. This removes the bitter effect often associated with these drinks, or the need for sugar to allow survival or mask taste. The result is the ability to create a world-first probiotic water with a truly refreshing taste, and more varieties to come (watch this space for news to follow!).

PERKii recently announced a brand new sparkling variant to our range of probiotic drinks! Find out more about 'Bifidobacterium', the strain of probiotics used.
