About Life-Space and Microbiome
Life-Space is Australia’s no. 1 leading probiotic brand, supported by a team of scientists, innovators and human microbiome ambassadors. The team and brand believes in the potential of microbiome, and the understanding of it will help many by supporting full body health at all stages of life.
Microbiome is the collection of microorganisms, including bacteria, fungi, viruses, and other microbes, that live in and on our body, and plays a crucial role in maintaining our overall health and well-being. An example is the microbiome in our gut, which helps break down food, absorb nutrients, and produce important compounds like vitamins and amino acids that our bodies need to function.
Recent research suggests that the gut microbiome may also influence our mental health and well-being by communicating with the brain via the gut-brain axis.
By taking care of our microbiome through a healthy diet, regular exercise, and good hygiene, we can promote a healthy and thriving microbiome and, in turn, support our overall health.

The Product: Ingredients and Benefits
Life-Space Broad Spectrum Probiotic contains 15 strains of good bacteria and is made for a healthy digestive system. It is researched and formulated for your immunity, to support your intestinal microbiome and bowel function, while supporting your everyday health and wellbeing.
The product is vegetarian friendly and has no added dairy, gluten or egg.
The measurement used for probiotics and other bacteria is CFU – colony forming units. Life-Space Broad Spectrum Probiotics contains 32 billion CFU including the probiotics strains L. = Lactobacillus and B. = Bifidobacterium. The former is found mostly in our digestive, urinary and genital system, while the latter is one of the major of bacteria that make up the gastrointestinal tract.
Testing the Product: Packaging and Taste Test
The product is sold by the number of hard capsules, 30, 60 or 90. It is packaged in a glass bottle with clear hard veggie capsule which contains a beige coloured powder.
As the powder is packaged in a capsule, there is no taste when swallowing. The capsule holds well in water and does not instantly melt when in contact with water. Its use of veggie capsules are known to be good for digestion, and are generally kosher and halal.
We got the 60 capsule bottle hence have been eating them everyday since. What we can share is that we have experienced a significant difference to our bowel health. This product is effective in helping with bowel movements, and also addresses bloating.
Appearance wise, the beige powder gradually turned grey overtime. We did not refrigerate it, as advised and had placed it in a dry place under 30 degree celsius.
Summary: Should you get yourself Life-Space Broad Spectrum Probiotics?
In our opinion, Life-Space is a no-frills probiotic option should you wish to add into your nutrition diet. Their microbiome product range is an endless selection, and targets what you want to address. As our intention was to help with digestion and to improve bowel health, these Broad spectrum probiotics helped with exactly that.
Others have also shared their experience and say that ‘it is great quality and does not bother my stomach like some other brands.’ (Megan on Amazon)
