BifidoBiotics x 60 Capsules
- Vegetarian product
The bifidobacteria group are the most common probiotics found in the large intestine. They are comparatively delicate however, and their numbers can be depleted by toxins in the intestines or by other stressors. Lactobacillus sporogenes is a probiotic strain uniquely “pre-encapsulated” in spores that resist the action of antibiotics and gastric juices. Lyophilized (freeze-dried).
Why support the gut with probiotics?
An optimally functioning intestinal system is crucial to the health of the whole body. The human gastrointestinal tract harbours trillions of microorganisms, some beneficial to our health and some not. The cells that line the intestines, called villi, form a single layer that regulates digestion and absorbs the digested products. Friendly (probiotic) bacteria live close to the villi, finding food and shelter, and in turn providing benefits to their host. Probiotic bacteria naturally occur in fermented foods, such as live culture yoghurt and sauerkraut. Nobel Prize laureate Elie Metchnikoff observed in the 19th century that people in the Balkans who ate yoghurt and other foods cultured with lactobacilli were longer-lived. He theorised that ingestion of lactobacilli could prolong life by competitively inhibiting undesirable microbes, preventing them from taking up residence and producing toxins. Intestinal dysbiosis occurs when unfriendly bacteria imbalance probiotic bacteria. Factors that can promote dysbiosis include antibiotics, steroids including birth control pills, alcohol, bacterial infections, stress, travelling or a poor diet.
Avoid obvious sources of pollution, toxins and fumes. Air your house. Consume whole, fresh foods, and minimise all forms of refined sugar and carbohydrates and processed foods. Drink adequate quantities of filtered water.
