Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is Probíta?
A. Probíta is a delicious, convenient chew packed with four grams of
hydrolyzed collagen protein—the most bio-identical protein source on the
market— that supports healthy joint flexibility and skin, while promoting
restful sleep. Probíta is the first hydrolyzed collagen protein product
brought to the market in a chewable form. Small enough to fit in your
pocket, this powerful protein goes anywhere you do.
Q. What is AC2 Technology?
A. AC2 Technology is Vísi’s propriety blend of hydrolyzed collagen protein
and arctic cloudberry. This unique blend is the foundation of Probíta’s
unparalleled protein nourishment and antioxidant protection.
Q. What does “hydrolyzed” mean?
A. Hydrolyzed means the protein has been broken down naturally to make it
easily digestible and highly absorbable. Even those suffering from
compromised digestive systems can benefit from hydrolyzed collagen protein.
Vísi’s proprietary hydrolyzation process uses all natural enzymes to
completely maximize protein assimilation for the highest possible quality
protein you can purchase at any price.
Q. Why is hydrolyzed collagen protein better than other
A. Hydrolyzed collagen protein is the most bioavailable protein
available. This means that it already occurs naturally in the human body,
resulting in an amazing 95% absorption rate when consumed. Other commonly
used proteins have a significantly lower absorption rates (Whey–53%,
Soy–26%, Pea–16%). Once absorbed, hydrolyzed collagen protein is immediately
recognized as part of the body, which results in faster and more effective
utilization of this vital building block.
Q. What is the process to create hydrolyzed collagen
A. Vísi’s hydrolyzed collagen protein is “hydrolyzed”, meaning broken down,
by a proprietary process of naturally dissolving collagen protein in water
using fruit enzymes (not acid). Unlike gelatin, which is damaged by heat
processing, fruit enzymes extract collagen protein without heat, chemicals,
or acids. The collagen protein then goes through a multi-step process that
includes micro- and nano-filtration, sterilization, and drying. This
enzymatic process takes up to six hours to ensure the finest quality of
Q. What is the recommended time to take Probíta?
A. Vísi recommends 2-4 chews per day. Take 1-2 chews between breakfast and
lunch, 1-2 chews between lunch and dinner, and 1-2 chews before bed (optimal
for muscle and joint recovery).
Q. What are the benefits of Probíta?
A. Protein is an essential building block of life, and Probíta contains the
most bio-available protein on the market. Hydrolyzed collagen protein boasts
a 95% absorption rate and is essential in creating connective tissue, which
improves mobility in the joints along with skin health. When taken at night
before going to bed, Probíta is extremely effective in aiding the body’s
natural state of repairing, building, and healing muscle tissue, and helps
encourage restful sleep. Probíta is small enough to fit in your pocket, so
it’s easy to get the protein you need on the go.
Q. How many grams of protein are in a Probíta chew?
A. Probíta contains 4 grams of protein in every chew.
Q. How many calories are in each serving of Probíta?
A. The number of calories differs between Probíta’s two delicious flavors.
Chocolate Probíta contains 30 calories per chew and Lingonberry Probíta
contains 20 calories per chew.
Q. Is Probíta safe for athletes to consume?
A. Yes, both Chocolate and Lingonberry Probíta have been certified by Banned
Substance Control Group (BSCG). BSCG assists responsible dietary supplement
manufacturers like Vísi by testing a sample of their product for a list of
banned substances. BSCG uses cutting edge anti-doping methodology for all
analyses. The detection limits used by BSCG are the lowest detection limits
for any similar program worldwide. Because Probíta has been certified by
BSCG, users can have confidence knowing Vísi is taking all precautions to
ensure that harmful anabolic agents and stimulants are not included in our
Q. What is the source of protein used in Probíta?
A. The collagen protein comes from a bovine source, specifically the dermis
layer (hide of the cow).
Q. Are the cows pasture raised and grass-fed?
A. Yes. The cows are pasture-raised and grass-fed.
Q. Why use a bovine source of collagen and not a vegan
A. Bovine collagen and human collagen are nearly identical, so the body
can instantly recognize and utilize hydrolyzed collagen protein. Vegan
sources are not as effective.
Q. Is Probíta all natural?
A. Yes. All the ingredients in Probíta are derived from a natural setting as
