Friendly Bacteria - Defending Your Body
When we speak of preventing and stopping disease, the immune system first comes to mind. What many of us don`t know is that the immune system is not always our first method of defense; bacteria play a key role in keeping out bodies free from unwanted inhabitants.
Friendly bacteria do much more than counter the unfriendly bacteria. They also provide us with other, powerful benefits.
- Friendly bacteria manufacture vitamins and essential fatty acids.
- Aid in the digestive process by helping digest lactose (milk sugar) and protein.
- Clean the intestinal tract, purify the colon, and promote regular bowel movements.
- Help support and maintain a healthy digestive system
About Lactobacillus Salivarius Bacteria
Lactobacilli are one of the most important types of friendly bacteria found in the digestive tract. These bacteria get their name (lacto) because they are able to turn milk sugar into lactic acid. Lactobacilli are able to help balance unfriendly bacteria because when they produce lactic acid, they alter the intestinal environment, making it unsuitable for unfriendly bacteria.
Lactobacilli have other benefits. They may help maintain and support healthy cholesterol levels. Lactobacillus salivarius is specially stabilized type of friendly bacteria that flourishes in the small intestine. L. salivarius is a new culture, requiring a special culturing process. After years of research, it is just now becoming available. The probiotic bacteria are grown on barley (containing gluten), soya, yeast and lactose derived ingredients.
