Probiotics for Improved Health

Probiotics are one of the top five recommended supplements. The word probiotic is derived from the Greek meaning “for life.” Probiotics consist of live, beneficial, healthy bacteria that help us in many ways. This “friendly” bacterium resides in the intestinal tract and contributes to your health by improving nutrition and protecting against disease.

Antibacterial soaps, washes and wipes, impure water, processed foods, stress, chronic dehydration, oral contraceptives, mercury amalgams, total toxic load and nutrient-deficient diets disrupt healthy flora. Stress upsets the delicate balance of the intestinal flora and causes imbalances of friendly bacteria which can lead to Candida, autoimmune and inflammatory diseases

A low or insufficient population of good bacteria can produce serious health problems, plus lead to an inability to absorb nutrients, cause Candida, gas, diarrhea and/or constipation, allergies, and skin conditions.
