Acidophilus Probiotics Formulas

Acidophilus Probiotics help digestion, reduce cholesterol, constipation, allergies, asthma, yeast infections and UTIs.

People over 60 have about 1,000-fold less "friendly" bacteria in their guts compared with other adults. Probiotics help protect older people against bowel conditions, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

Scientific literature has reported about 80 human studies with positive results against bowel conditions like travellers diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome and antibiotic-associated diarrhea.

While probiotics are useful for the healthy population - helping to prevent bacteria which cause food poisoning, such as E.coli or campylobacter, from taking hold, they would be even more beneficial for older people.

As people got older they have reduced levels of friendly bacteria and increased levels of disease-causing bacteria. At about the age of 60 there was a big drop in bacteria levels, and older people had 1,000-fold less friendly bacteria than other younger adults.

People of all ages on antibiotics would benefit from probiotic products because antibiotics reduce levels of all strains of bacteria in the gut.

Taking Probiotics help to restore and maintain a healthy vaginal flora and reduce the chance of a urogenital infection. It is estimated that 75% of women will experience a UTI or yeast infection.

Not all bacteria are bad. In fact, beneficial microbes could represent the future of medicine, with the potential to treat a variety of diseases in humans and animals from diarrhea and eczema to gum disease and autoimmune disorders.

Probiotics can help prevent and treat disease through a number of mechanisms. One way is by interacting directly with the disease-causing microbes, making it harder for them to cause disease. An example of this is the ingestion of probiotic bacteria to prevent or treat diarrhea. The organisms help reinforce the natural bacterial barrier that exists on the lining of the digestive tract providing additional protection against pathogenic organisms that can cause diarrhea.

Another example of microbe-microbe interaction in probiotics is a phenomenon known as "competitive exclusion" in which beneficial microbes directly compete with disease-causing microbes for food and other resources, eventually crowding them out.

Probiotic bacteria reside in the digestive tract and can provide several health benefits, ranging from lowering cholesterol and boosting immunity, to reducing the effects of lactose intolerance, constipation, diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, and even gum disease. In addition, specific strains of probiotic bacteria, such as L. acidophilus and B. bifidus, can be used to prevent the growth of �unfriendly� bacteria � researchers believe they may play a role in combating the growing problem of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

Benefits of Acidophilus Probiotic Bifidus Formula:
  • Aids the digestive process
  • Helps to alleviate yeast infections
  • Helps with UTIs and vaginal infections
  • Helps correct constipation, diarrhea, colitis and diverticulitis
  • A calming effect on nervousness
  • Reduces high cholesterol
  • Enhances the absorption of nutrients
  • Sweetens bad breath
  • Reduces allergies and asthma
  • Destroys harmful bacteria and certain viruses

Recent studies have also shown that probiotics may have additional benefits. A 2003 study published in The Lancet, in which babies who were considered at high risk for allergies received probiotics for six months after birth, showed that probiotics cut the infants� incidence of eczema by 40%. A 2004 study in the Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology also demonstrated that probiotics could help prevent or mitigate food allergies, while another 2004 study in the same journal found a link between probiotics and the reduction of certain intestinal inflammations accompanying cystic fibrosis.

Allergies and asthma may start in your gut. Upset the gut's natural mix of helpful bacteria and fungi, and allergies and asthma may develop.

According to researchers, the rates of allergies and asthma have increased. They say this correlates with increasing antibiotic use and possibly relates to the hygiene theory. This may mean that modern practices of sanitation could deprive people of defenses needed to prevent asthma and allergies.

That theory was recently tested on lab mice. First, the mice drank water laced with antibiotics for a few days. This disrupted their microflora -- healthy bacteria and fungi found naturally in the gastrointestinal tract. The mice got increasing numbers of fungal inhabitants. Specifically, they had increased amounts of the yeast called Candida, which is commonly seen after taking antibiotics.

Candida, like many other yeast, secrete molecules that affect the immune system's response to allergens. With their microflora out of whack, the mice were then exposed to allergens. They promptly showed signs of allergic airway disease similar to asthma.

But another group of mice weren't bothered by the mold. Their microflora had been left alone. That suggests that allergies and related breathing problems could start in the gut. The study didn't stop there. The researchers pushed a bit further to see if genetics or other allergens mattered.

They found that the genes of the mice made no difference, and they saw the same effect with several other allergens (pollens, danders, dust mites, and cockroach feces). Change the microflora in the gut and you upset the immune system's balance between being exposed to allergens and having a severe reaction to them.

Probiotics also help prevent disease by interacting with and strengthening the immune system, treating antibiotic-resistant infections, encouraging weight gain in newborns and children with AIDS, reducing the incidence of kidney stones, and reducing the recurrence of bladder tumors.

The good flora Lactobacillus Acidophilus Bifidus Blend provides 8 billion good bacteria per capsule. It is grown is an organic medium and is naturally stabilized.

Specific types of live bacteria - called probiotics - live in the human gut. If you take them in the proper amount, they can help fight disease. Probiotics can relieve lactose intolerance, bladder and vaginal infections and prevent allergies among other things.

Probiotics are bacterial cultures that support a good and healthy intestinal bacterial flora. They will give you the means to maintain a balanced bacterial flora in the intestines. Probiotic bacteria thrive on complex carbohydrates, low sugar, low-fat diet, a diet high in meat, sugar and fat. They predispose the growth of harmful bacteria and yeasts. Probiotic bacteria prefer an acidic pH and can live in the presence or absence of oxygen.

These friendly bacteria have a highly significant role to play, which is becoming more widely recognized among health professionals in influencing our health within the complex metabolic, biochemical and nutritional cycles of the human body. Research has documented considerable evidence for the wide-ranging therapeutic properties of probiotic organisms and has established their role in maintaining optimal health.

The major areas of Probiotics therapeutic clinical action includes:

� Competition against harmful micro-organisms including Candida, preventing colonization of pathogens through the production of inhibitory substances including acids, hydrogen peroxide and natural antibiotics � Enhancement of digestion of lactose (milk sugar) � Reduction in blood cholesterol levels � Immune enhancement, including enhanced macrophage activity � Reduction in the levels of and deactivation of potential cancer causing chemicals, particularly in the colon and direct anti-tumor activity of certain strains � Reduction in liver toxicity � Enhancement of peristalsis, digestion, regularity and re-absorption of nutrients. In infants, promotion of healthy digestive tract colonization� Enhancement and balance of estrogen levels, prevention of osteoporosis through increased calcium uptake � Protection against food poisoning, travelers' diarrhea, allergies, skin problems � Enhancement of vitamin (B, K), digestion of proteins, fats and carbohydrates.
