Probiotics and Friendly Flora


You Need Probiotics For Better Digestion and Overall Health

Inside your body there are thousands, even millions of living organisms. They make up two pounds of your body weight. Don't let this scare you - not all bacteria are bad.

There are harmful bacteria and helpful bacteria. The hard-working, friendly bacteria produce a variety of substances than can prevent cancerous tumors, deactivate viruses, produce natural antibodies, reduce cholesterol and enhance the immune system.

They even produce and distribute vitamins (such as the B-complex) among your organs. One particular strain of bacteria called lactobacillus salivarius produces acidophin, an antibiotic that helps protect against harmful bacteria.

What's the significance of all this? If you've even taken traditional medicine, you know that it doesn't always do what it's supposed to. Modern medicine that is designed to kill bacteria does exactly that - it kills bacteria, regardless of whether it is the helpful or the harmful kind. Medicine like that can actually poison your body by having a negative influence on the helpful bacteria.

The exciting news is that you can take probiotics to supplement the friendly bacteria your body already produces. Having the right amount of probiotics in your body to work in conjunction with enzymes is essential for good health.

While many agree on the efficacy of friendly bacteria, many are not aware that totally stable cultures that are strong enough to survive in the acidic environment of the stomach are the only ones that allow 100% of the good bacteria to remain alive and active in your system.

This is important, because many probiotic supplements are unable to pass through the stomach for colonization in the small intestine, where they have tremendous benefit.

Also, many probiotic supplements actually mutate in their bottles before they even reach the consumer. It's imperative that the life-force energy in the bacterial colonies is alive and well because dead bacteria release endotoxins inside the body that the liver is forced to filter from the bloodstream.

Many probiotic supplements use freeze-drying and high pressure to form hard tablets that, when ingested by the consumer, contain dead, useless bacteria toxic to the system.

Probiotics, often referred to as the "good bacteria" in your body, play a vital role in your good health:

1.) Probiotics create natural antibiotics that destroy harmful bacteria. Phenomenal for food poisoning!

2.) Probiotics change the levels of acidity in various parts of the body, depriving harmful bacteria of nutrients needed to survive.

3.) Probiotics create their own antibiotic substances, which kill harmful bacteria, viruses, and yeasts.

4.) Probiotics produce enzymes to break down waste in the colon for elimination and even help strengthen the immune system.

5.) Probiotics have been shown to help reduce high cholesterol levels and help recycle the female hormone estrogen, which reduces the likelihood of menopausal symptoms and osteoporosis.

Your body cannot function properly without probiotics. However, due to diet and environmental toxicity, most people do not have adequate colonies of friendly flora in their intestinal tract, which leads to a host of health problems.

Where do you come into contact with bad bacteria? Airplanes, cars, hospitals, malls, movie theaters, public rest rooms - anywhere there are people you will find bad bacteria.

Any inorganic food you eat is packed with antibiotics, which destroy the good bacteria in your intestinal tract. More than ever, people need to replenish their friendly flora!
