MEMBER NEWS: New Bigelow Plus Probiotics

With so many of us looking to nurture our bodies in ways that make us more resilient to the stresses of today’s demanding lifestyles, and with digestive health being one of the top functional benefits driving growth in marketplace, Bigelow Tea is excited to announce the expansion of its Probiotic line of teas that support everyday digestion in uncommonly delicious ways.

To satisfy demand, over the weeks and months ahead, Bigelow Tea will be adding two new delightful additions to its wildly popular Lemon Ginger Plus Probiotics Herbal Tea already on grocery store shelves.

      verbena and warm ginger

In 2009, Bigelow Tea was the first to overcome the challenge of finding a strain of probiotics hearty enough to survive the high heat of boiling water and deliver beneficial probiotics to the digestive tract – exactly where they are needed.

“The idea of adding probiotics to hot tea seemed counter intuitive at first” recalls Cindi Bigelow, President and CEO of family-owned Bigelow Tea.  “It had never been done.  But based on consumer interest in probiotics and our passion for tea, we were determined to create a flavorful and delicious product that would deliver enough active probiotics -- in a tea bag!”

It took patience and determination but the cutting-edge idea paid off. Responding to growing consumer demand for calorie-free ways to effectively add probiotics to their daily lifestyle, master tea blenders at Bigelow Tea have developed additional flavorful blends that combine Ganeden BC30 Probiotics (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086), with premium quality, all-natural ingredients you know and trust.

Today sales continue to grow, making Bigelow’s Lemon Ginger Plus Probiotics Tea the #1 Probiotic tea in America.

Designed to support and add value every day to a regular healthy lifestyle, these delectably soothing teas can be enjoyed anytime throughout the day, morning, noon and night.

“While all tea is inherently healthy, with today’s growing awareness for mindful eating and the need to live as healthy a lifestyle as we can, we created these beautiful and flavorful products to support our bodies naturally, in gentle ways with ingredients you know and trust,” says Cindi Bigelow. “Like all Bigelow teas, they are made with exceptional care by Bigelow family tea blenders right here in the USA.  Just one sip and I believe you’ll want to make our Probiotics teas part of an everyday routine that helps you define the life you want to live!” 

Teas, in 18-count boxes, are available in grocery stores nationwide and online at The average suggested SRP is $3.19.
