Our 100 Billion Probiotic, also referred to as friendly or good bacteria, gut flora, intestinal flora, microflora, and direct
fed microorganisms (DFM), probiotics help maintain the natural balance of
organisms (microflora) in the intestines. They are live, microscopic living
organisms – such as bacteria, viruses, and yeasts – that play a vital role
in the fermentation and digestion of carbohydrates, and aid in the
digestion of fats and proteins.*
Probiotics have shown to prevent bloating, gas and yeast overgrowth
because they help maintain intestinal acidity at a healthy pH level. These
probiotic can also help generate certain vitamins and nutrients, support
the immune system, and help prevent disease by depriving
bacteria of nutrients, and secreting acids that harmful bacteria can’t cope
bacteria also metabolize and recycle hormones such as estrogen,
phytoestrogens, and thyroid, which foster hormonal balance and help
minimize menopausal symptoms.
Why is it important for your Probiotics to survive stomach acids?
To be most effective, a probiotic species must be resistant to acid and
bile to survive transit through the upper gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Most
probiotics do not colonize the lower GI tract in a durable fashion. Even
the most resilient strains generally can be cultured in stool for only one
to two weeks after ingestion.
To maintain colonization,
probiotics must be taken regularly.*

The digestive system is an incredibly important, and complex part of the
human body. Many Doctors, Internists and all health care providers believe
it is the place where health begins…and ends. Probiotics provide an
exciting new aspect to the health of the human gut.
Our Gut, Brain and Primary Immune Defenses are all Connected.
Our gut is quite literally your second brain, as it originates from the
same type of tissue as your brain! During fetal development, one part turns
into your central nervous system, while the other develops into your
enteric nervous system. These two systems are connected via the vagus
nerve, the tenth cranial nerve that runs from your brain stem down to your
abdomen. Hence your gut and your brain work in tandem, each influencing the
Benefit of Probiotics: Should you take a daily dose of bacteria?
The idea of tossing down a few billion bacteria a day for your health might
seem—literally and figuratively—hard to swallow. But the May issue of
Harvard Women’s Health Watch reports that a growing body of scientific
evidence suggests that you can treat and prevent some illnesses with
supplements containing certain kinds of health-promoting bacteria, called
probiotics (meaning “for life”). An estimated 100 trillion microorganisms
inhabit every normal, healthy bowel, where they keep pathogens (harmful
microorganisms) in check, aid digestion, and nutrient absorption, and
contribute to immune function. If these gut-dwelling bacteria become
depleted—usually because of disease, stress, poor diet, or medications like
antibiotics—health problems can result. According to Harvard Women’s Health
Watch, probiotic therapy has been best studied for the treatment of
diarrhea. It may also help people with Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel
syndrome, and other gastrointestinal problems. Probiotics that help restore
the balance of microflora in the vagina may be useful in treating such
common female urogenital problems as bacterial vaginosis, yeast infection,
and urinary tract infection.*
