Probiotics promote more than Digestive Health.
It's not just what you eat, but how well you digest foods that counts. The health of your GI tract is vital. Most people don't realize that much of your immune system rests in your gut. Over 100 trillion microbes live in your GI tract and work to insure normal gastrointestinal function, systemic metabolism and immune function. In our grandparents' time, we lived closer to nature. We didn't use antibiotics for every cold, UTI, or to prevent acne. We didn't over process foods or inject antibiotics into cattle and chickens. And our vegetables were not sprayed with hundreds of pesticides that kill microbes. The widespread use of antibiotics and over-processed foods has caused an unbalance of digestive flora for many of us.
Scientists have discovered links between detoxification of the intestinal tract and increased health and wellness, energy, skin health, and even weight loss. Older mice fed probiotics have shown reduced inflammation in the G.I. tract and increased lifespans. They even injected the intestinal flora from "fat mice" into thin mice, and they "got fat". Scientists are beginning to ask the question, exactly how important are the flora that thrives in our intestine?
Your digestive health can influence how you feel day and night. From digesting foods properly to daily elimination, the right balance of intestinal flora (good bacteria) can make a large difference in your health. In fact, these good bacteria are responsible for:
- Tissue development
- Protecting the intestinal epithelium (mucosa)
- Immune Defenses
- Synthesizing Vitamin K and B Vitamins
- Defending against the incidence of gastrointestinal conditions related to intestinal flora deficiency
- Formation of normal stools
- Producing lactase, an enzyme that helps break down or digest dairy proteins such as lactose.
Which good bacteria offer the most health benefits?
There are many species of microbes that have been studied and proven beneficial. For example, Bifidobacterium longum makes up over 90% of total GI bacteria in breast-fed infants. It has proven to help support healthy immune function, activating IgA, NK cells and neutrophils, as well as balancing Th1 and Th2 immune activity, which aids in protecting the body's natural defenses vital to good health. It also has been shown to enhance mucosal barrier function, which is vital to a healthy gastrointestinal tract.
Each Tummy Pro capsule was infused with 2 million living beneficial Bifidobacterium longum bacteria!
Why do we need probiotic supplements?
Yogurt is an excellent source of good bacteria, but one cup a day may not provide enough beneficial bacteria. However, getting probiotics by way of a probiotic supplement assures us of maintaining ongoing colonization of good bacteria within the digestive tract for continual health benefits.
