"When I first heard about this product, well frankly, I thought to myself 'this is probably just snake oil.' I was very suspicious. So I went out to Los Angeles and interviewed people who had used it, and looked at their medical histories, and I became a believer. Without a doubt, people are being helped." **

Maintain Better Health: Avoid Bacterial Imbalances

by Frank Burns

Today, doctors from around the world are talking about the need for Probiotics in our daily diet. An effective Probiotics supplement can help you to restore the proper balance between friendly and unfriendly bacteria and stop chronic conditions of bacterial imbalances. Many Probiotic researchers report that, with the use of Probiotics, you can stay healthy and become sick less often.

* The term Probiotics, a Greek word meaning “for life,” was first introduced in 1953 in contrast to the word antibiotics; but it was not until the late 1970 that the term Probiotics became associated with nutritional supplement labeling of specific foods and products that contain "friendly” bacteria. Many of these bacteria are naturally found in your digestive tract and are vital for good digestive health. A few basic products that contain “good” bacteria include yogurt and other dairy products. Nutritional products have added a variety of these bacteria strains together to create daily supplements.

* The most common bacteria that are found in the gut and in most Probiotics are Lactobacillus and Bifidiobacteria. However, there are more than 400 different genus of good bacteria found in your GI tract. Maintaining the correct balance of good bacteria and bad bacteria is a delicate balancing act. When this balance becomes more unfriendly than friendly, some sort of illness is sure to follow. There are many things that can throw off this critical balance; including, acidic foods, antibiotics, caffeine, sugar, stress, and many other factors.

* Antibiotics have been identified as one of the most common culprits. Although we are most grateful to have them, unchecked and overused, antibiotics can become the enemy creating a great imbalance in your gut microflow, upsetting the natural balance of things. It is possible to correct these negative side effects through the daily use of an effective Probiotics Consortia. Probiotics will starve out the unfriendly bacteria as they compete for the available food sources making it much more difficult for the negative species to thrive.

* The use of Probiotics has proven to be beneficial for those that suffer from discomfort in the digestive tract and other stomach related issues. Probiotics have been used to help those who are lactose intolerant as specific strains of bacteria can help as they convert lactose to lactic acid. Research has shown that other strains of good bacteria may help to protect you from some forms of bacterial infections which can make you more susceptible to other colon problems, though this research has not yet been conducted on humans. Research is ongoing.

* The only side effects (which we call side benefits) that users of Probiotics tend to experience include bloating and some excess gas. This is very common as the unfriendly bacteria die off, they sort-of explode before passing through for elimination. Probiotics are generally considered safe, however, If you have underlying health issues it is important to check with your doctor first before taking any Probiotics formula, as there is a small chance that the Probiotics may interact with some auto-immune medications.

* There are many different forms of Probiotics which contain a variety of strains of bacteria, so each Probiotic supplement can produce different effects. You may want to experiment with several before deciding which Probiotics formula is right for you. If you do not feel a benefit within the first 72 hours, there is a good chance that the one you have selected simply is not right for you. Our best recommendation is to look for Probiotics living in their own natural consortium.
