ProFlora / Probiotics (5 billion Active Cultures) The word probiotic means ‘for life’, but in the context of colon health, probiotics refer to the daily supplements of friendly bacteria that can be taken to enhance and support good colon function.
Many strains of good bacteria available in supplement form work to support healthy bowel ecology. There are various strains of bacteria that go by different names, such as lactobacillus acidophilus, lactobacillus rhamnosus, lactobacillus casei, lactobacillus bulgaricus, bifidobacterium bifidum, bifidobacterium lactis, bifidobacterium breve, bifidobacterium longum, streptococcus themophilus, lactobacilli salivarius, and lactobacilli plantarum.
Some probiotic bacteria feed on putrefactive matter in the digestive tract and help to eliminate it. They act as microbial ‘pac-men’, munching away, and cleaning impacted, putrefied debris throughout the digestive system. Probiotics can be very active on proteins as well as by-products of protein putrefaction. This allows the bacteria to break down undigested proteins, thus making nutrition readily available to the body while rendering pathogenic toxins inert. Friendly bacteria offer tremendous support for good colon health.
With so much of health depending on the condition and cleanliness of the intestinal system, health conscious folks should consider either consistent or periodic consumption of probiotics as essential.
