What exactly are Probiotics?
As a society, we have come to think of bacteria as the enemy when, in fact, the body is entirely reliant on a number of good bacterial strains to thrive. Nutrient absorption, vitamin synthesis, and waste elimination through regularity are dependent upon a certain number of probiotics, or friendly bacteria, present and active in the intestines. The intestinal flora serves as a barrier, protecting against infections by avoiding the colonization of disease causing pathogens in the GI tract. It does so by providing antimicrobial substances, as well as stimulating the body's own natural defenses. The word probiotic literally means 'for life' - and that is exactly what they do, they help promote life.
Unfortunately, our modern lifestyle works against their survival and the activity of suitable intestinal flora balance. This includes stress, diet, prescription and over the counter drugs, chlorine in our water (drinking and bathing in it), illness, antibiotics, aging, etc. The list goes on. These challengers make it virtually impossible to achieve balance and tend to shift the intestinal conditions into a more acidic and disease hosting environment. By supplementing with probiotics, you are stimulating natural re-colonization while depriving the bad bacteria of continued growth.
Bad bacteria = Toxins and Toxins = Disease. Eliminate its growth, and eliminate the environment in which disease can flourish.
Probiotics have been shown in studies to stimulate the immune system, help to digest dairy products by manufacturing the enzyme lactase, have powerful anticarcinogenic qualities helpful against certain cancers and tumor growths, help to lower the bad cholesterol, aids to synthesize the B vitamins, promote regularity and overall digestive tract functions, help to recycle estrogen for women, counteract the negative effects of antibiotic use, and create their own natural antibiotics used by the body to fight illness, infection, yeast, and any other disease causing pathogens that threaten their territory.
Probiotic therapy is commonly used in the treatment of acne, eczema, psoriasis, migraine, allergies, gout, rheumatic and arthritic conditions, candidiasis, cystitis, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, chrohn's disease, and even some forms of cancer.
Probiotic therapy is advantageous for all walks of life, especially in today's modern society and lifestyle. Probiotics not only aid to maximize nutrient and supplement assimilation, but are also extremely useful in providing your body with extra protection from disease in general by stimulating your own body's natural defenses!
