Probiotics - Friendly Bacteria for Intestinal Health
In this life we eat to survive, sustain our energy, grow and reproduce. Our food is partially digested in the alimentary canal, mouth, stomach and finally in the intestine, where the partially digested food is ultimately metabolized by millions and millions of micro-organisms working simultaneously and synergistically. It has been said that there are more bacteria in and on one person at one time than there are people on this earth.
Improving our digestion is the foundation to good health. Energy levels improve, our immune system is strengthened, our complexion becomes clearer, and our skin feels softer.
A lack of essential nutrients, the wrong diet and a sedentary lifestyle often results in poor digestion, a lack of absorption, abnormal gut reactions including bloating and inflammation, but infections and poor waste disposal. This then has a knock on effect throughout all our body systems.Probiotics - Friendly Bacteria for Intestinal Health
Friendly Probiotic Bacteria
We are not always aware of the role the friendly bacteria play. Their major role is in balancing and counteracting the unfriendly bacteria. When friendly bacteria are not at appropriate levels, and when unfriendly bacteria dominate, health problems can result. These include gas, bloating, intestinal toxicity, constipation, and malabsorption of nutrients. Friendly bacteria do much more than counter the unfriendly bacteria. They also provide us with other, powerful benefits.
Friendly bacteria have many functions in the gut as they:
- manufacture vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, K and biotin
- manufacture essential fatty acids
- aid in the digestive process by helping digest lactose (milk sugar) and protein
- clean the intestinal tract, purify the colon, and promote regular bowel movements
- produce antibiotics and antifungals that prevent the growth of harmful bacteria and fungi.
- present antitumoral characteristics.
Normal microbial flora provide a passive mechanism to
- prevent infection and inflammation
- prevent allergies
- contribute to the destruction of molds, viruses, and parasites; increase the number of immune system cells
- create lactic acid, which balances intestinal pH
- protect us from environmental toxins such as pesticides and pollutants, reduce toxic waste at the cellular level, and stimulate the repair mechanism of cells
- help maintain healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels
- break down and rebuild hormones.
