Did you know?
Our forefathers received their daily food on an annual basis from at least 500 plants and also, as the food they ate were often stored in the soil, a rich supply of numerous micro-organisms. Modern day food is based on a small number of nutrients, 80 % of which come from only 17 plants and 50% of our calories come from only 8 grains! Also, modern food often goes through extensive processing, growth enhancement, separation, condensing, drying, freezing, irradiation, burning, microwaving, heating, cooking and adding of various non-nutritious and (potentially harmful) ingredients. These all change the nature of our food which has a negative impact on human health, including deranging the immune system. Put this together with the use of numerous pharmaceutical drugs e.g. antibiotics that further suppress immune function, we have a recipe for on-going sub-optimal or poor health. Too many of us have lost the ability to maintain proper colonisation of the bowel flora.
Stress, prescription drugs, alcohol, a high-fat diet, too much red meat and too little dietary fibre can allow bad gut bacteria to overgrow and take over the gut. This can lead to digestive problems like infections, lactose intolerance, diarrhoea, irritable bowel syndrome, Candida and reduced absorption of nutrients. Unless you put more good guys in.
The prebiotics are soluble, non-digestible dietary fibres that good bacteria cling to and feed on. They move through the gut without being broken down. Then they stick around to be fermented in the colon. This means good bacteria have more to eat for longer. The healthy flora flourish.

Benefits of good bacteria (probiotics):
Inhibit bad bacteria. They compete with unhealthy bacteria for binding sites and nutrients – some probiotics even lower the pH to inhibit bad microflora and produce bacteriocins, natural antibiotic substances against harmful bugs like Candida albicans, Salmonella, E coli and Staph aureus.
Strengthens the gut barrier. The gut flora ensures proper mucous secretion which provides an obstacle to the absorption of pathogenic substances. Some bacteria actually strengthen the intestinal structure and are involved in tissue and cell development. An increase in Bifidobacteria induced by nutritional supplements is correlated with an improved gut barrier. A dysfunctional gut barrier function is associated with digestive difficulties such as leaky gut syndrome and lactose intolerance.
Recover good gut flora after antibiotics. Antibiotics kill bacteria, but don’t know how to tell the good from the bad. This means they can upset the system and your stomach. Replacing the beneficial bacteria with a probiotic can help restore a healthy flora balance.
Improve immunity. Good bacteria work with the immune system on multiple levels. They’re practically honorary members of the immune system team:
       Physical protection. Probiotic bacteria line the mouth, nose, oesophagus, lung cavity and digestive and urinary systems. They form a physical barrier between bad bacteria and the bloodstream. Like a living layer of Clingfilm.
       More immune cells. Research has shown that probiotics help increase the number of T and B lymphocytes produced to fight the body’s battles.
       More immune activity. They stimulate cells to produce antibodies against foreign invaders and immune messenger proteins called cytokines that help coordinate the immune response.
      More killer cell activity. Probiotics don’t just stimulate T-cells and B-cells to do their thing. They also push other immune cells, like macrophages and natural killer cells, to do theirs – namely to attack, engulf and swallow harmful microorganisms and toxins. It’s called phagocytosis, which means “cell eating”. And probiotics get cells eating more.
      Enhance nutrition and absorption. More good bacteria in the gut promote the absorption of nutrients from food – especially minerals like iron, calcium, magnesium and zinc. They also produce nutrients themselves, including B vitamins, folic acid, and antioxidants like vitamin K.

Speak to your doctor before taking PRO-PROBIOTIC if you: Are pregnant or breast-feeding (use cautiously or avoid); Are severely ill; Have a much weakened immune system as probiotics can exert potentially powerful immune effects.

Note: Supplementation should not replace a healthy, balanced and varied diet. Speak to your doctor or pharmacist before taking any supplement.
