How Probiotics help.

Probiotics may help us in many ways.  They may: 

  • Compete with "bad" bacteria for space and nutrients in the digestive tract
  • Produce bacteriocins - toxins that kill harmful bacteria
  • Produce enzymes that inactivate bacterial toxins
  • Beneficially modify components of our immune systems that contribute to:
  1. Allergies
  2. Eczema
  3. Chronic fungal overgrowth
  4. Chronic inflammatory disorders
  • Aid in digestion
  • Produce vitamins
  • Detoxify harmful substances, including toxic heavy metals like mercury
  • Produce acidic substances-specifically short-chain-fatty-acids (SCFA)
  1. SCFA suppress growth and activities of harmful bacteria
  2. SCFA provide our intestinal cells with energy
  3. SCFA possess anti-inflammatory actions
  4. SCFA offer protection against colon cancer
