The Health Benefits of Probiotics

(DrEddyClinic News) Repeatedly demonstrated to aid gastrointestinal health in the human body, acidophilus and other probiotics are key elements of our overall health and well being. This is particularly true when we consider that many of our common-day chronic ailments begin in the digestive system http://www.dreddyclinic.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=32748. It is also true when we consider the sheer number of people that suffer from poor gastrointestinal health, a condition which lowers the overall level of good bacteria in the body.

Before we go into the multi-fold benefits of taking probiotics http://www.dreddyclinic.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=31651, let’s define what probiotics are. The Joint FAO/WHO Working Group defines probiotics as “live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host.”

In plain English, probiotics are a type of living bacteria that actually benefit your health when taken in the appropriate amounts. This friendly bacteria, located in the gastrointestinal tract, comes in a variety of forms. With more than 400 different bacteria living in the human gastrointestinal tract, the most common forms of intestinal probiotics are L. acidophilus and Bifidobacteria bifidum.

Floratrex™ is a superior blend of 50 billion live and active cultures from 23 probiotic strains. It also contains prebiotics to help support strong gut health.

These bacteria act as balancing agents for non-friendly, pathogenic, gut-bacteria such as Candida fungus http://www.dreddyclinic.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=52&t=32061 or E. coli. When the “good-guys” are not present enough, a number of bacteria-related health problems such as digestive upset, headaches, sluggishness, irritability, cadidiasis (an overgrowth of the bacteria Candida albicans), and even anxiety http://www.dreddyclinic.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=31815 can ensue.

Lactobacillus acidophilus is, quite possibly, the strongest of our probiotic fighters. Studies show that L. acidophilus actually creates a natural form of antibiotics in the body [1]. This increases our ability to defend against the pathogens in the food we eat, the air we breath, and the things we come in contact with. Stress, unhealthy lifestyles, and most importantly, unhealthy acidic diets, destroy our natural amounts of probiotics. In this sense, it is a great idea to add a probiotic supplement to your diet.

The Health Benefits of Probiotics

The following health benefits are associated with the intake of daily servings of probiotics [2].


Who Should Take Probiotics?

Although candidiasis sufferers require supplemental use of probiotics to replenish beneficial GI bacteria and rebuild their immune system, they aren’t the only ones that need it. Everyone who is exposed to a toxic environment, eats processed food, and/or suffers from a high-stress lifestyle needs probiotics.

This is especially true if you are consistently taking antibiotics, or if you have ever been on a course of particularly strong antibiotics, have frequent colds, or exhibit any symptoms of candida related problems. The reason for this is that antibiotics kills not only the “bad” bacteria, but also the beneficial bacteria. Despite their value, antibiotics have been overused to the point that there are at least two bacteria that have developed complete resistance to antibiotics. Needless to say, these bacteria present a serious problem to our health.

Studies on Probiotics

Studies show that probiotics improve the bio-availability of many important nutrients in the body such as zinc, iron, phosphorus, all of the B vitamins, calcium, copper, and magnesium. [3]
A study on the probiotic strain B. infantis showed powerful abilites to normalize bowel function in patients suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). [4]
Probiotics have been shown to significantly lower the rate of diarrhea and diaper rash http://www.dreddyclinic.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=41&t=33325 in babies’ consuming infant probiotics. [5]
Active bacteria cultures, such as acidophilus, have been shown to aid in reducing intolerance to lactose http://www.dreddyclinic.com/findinformation/ll/lactoseintolerance.php found in dairy products. [6]
Several studies on probiotics have indicated that through the process of regulating intestinal transit time of fecal matter, probiotics can dramatically reduce constipation http://www.dreddyclinic.com/findinformation/cc/constipation.php in the elderly. [7]
Other reports indicate that some forms of probiotics, can aid in promoting the growth of healthy bacteria in the colon, significantly lowering the conversion of bile in the colon into carcinogens.
Some studies demonstrate that probiotics enhance overall immunity through a process of regulating lymphocytes and antibodies in the body. [8]

Where Can I Buy High-Quality Probiotics?

Currently, I recommend and use 2 forms of probiotics: http://bit.ly/dreddyclinic-floratrex Latero-Flora™ http://bit.ly/dreddyclinic-latero-flora which is the B.O.D. Bacillus Laterosporus strain and Dr. Mercola’s Bacillus Coagulans strain. I have tested many products and these seem to work the best, especially for taming candida and balancing bowel bacteria.

Latero-Flora™ is a probiotic supplement that supports gut health by populating the digestive tract with beneficial Bacillus laterosporus (B.O.D.™) bacteria.

Be sure to avoid probiotic supplements that have sugar or glucose in the ingredient list. Both sugar and glucose actually slow the growth of healthy lactobacilli. We can also get moderate levels of probiotics from a healthy diet rich in cultured organic products like yogurt, goat’s cheese, kefir and buttermilk.

Many common leafy greens are also excellent sources of probiotics. The best greens for increasing probiotics include chlorella, wheat grass, and spirulina. The advantage of getting these disease-fighting bacteria from green sources is that these foods are also extremely high in immune system-stimulating vitamins, minerals and nutrients. They also aid in detoxing the body.

This site has a lot of useful information but I'm having a hard time picking which brand. Is it better to get as many strands as possible into one supplement or should I just focus on the best ones?

Thanks.
