The benefits of probiotics (gut flora): break down foods into easily absorbed nutrients and act as natural antibiotics, kill unfriendly micro-organisms, improve digestion and maintain a healthy immune system. Our probiotic contains good bacteria lactobacillus acidophilus & bifidobacterium longum.
We’re Not Alone in Our Quest for Health The human body is home to a host of microorganisms that work together with the body to create optimal health. The greatest concentration of these organisms can be found in the intestinal system, where this miniature ecology of microbes - known collectively as the gut flora - aids in the digestive process and the absorption of nutrients. The delicate balance of healthy gut flora can be disrupted by a number of circumstances, including the use of antibiotics, excess alcohol, stress, disease and exposure to environmental toxins.
Maintaining the Balance When unfavorable conditions work to reduce the number of friendly microbes in the intestinal system, it allows unwanted bacteria to grow and flourish in its place. Such a condition not only impairs digestion and nutrient absorption but also, in allowing harmful microorganisms to thrive, may compromise the immune system and lead to illness.
What are Probiotics? As defined by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the term probiotic refers to "live microorganisms administered in adequate amounts, which confer a beneficial health effect on the host.” In layman’s terms, a probiotic is a dietary supplement containing live microorganisms that works to improve overall health. Almost all probiotics are bacteria, small, single-celled organisms. The most popular bacterias used in probiotics come from the Lactobacillus or Bifidobacterium family. Some probiotics, such as Lactobacillus reuteri, have been studied for their health benefits for more than 50 years. Aside from supplements, most probiotics can be found in fermented dairy foods such as yogurt.
Why You Need Them?
Recent scientific investigation suggests that probiotics are a valuable part of a healthy diet. They act as natural health promoters by populating the gastrointestinal tract with friendly microbes, which strengthens intestinal defenses, boosts immunity and promotes greater health. The presence of probiotics in the intestinal system maintains populations of beneficial bacteria and suppresses the growth of unfriendly microorganisms in the gut. It is especially useful to employ probiotics after taking antibiotics. As antibiotics indiscriminately destroy both good and bad bacteria in the body, probiotics help to replenish healthful
microorganisms and preserve intestinal health.
Good health begins with balance, especially in the intestinal system. Probiotics help maintain the delicate balance of friendly microorganisms in the intestines and promote health on several levels.
