Our 35 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 bad bacteria of nutrients, and secreting acids that harmful bacteria can’t cope with.*
Good 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 the 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 one another.*
Benefits 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.*
