It Gets Worse
And just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse than our nutritionally deficient food supply, it does…
We are faced with major stressors every single day due to our totally hectic and all too consuming lifestyle. This includes everything that happens to us at home AND at work.
This means that our stressed out bodies are desperately fighting extra hard for us every single minute to stay in balance, which let’s us remain both healthy AND happy. But, when things are thrown too far out of whack our physical, psychological, and emotional health takes a toll.
So we end up feeling “beaten down” when our body’s systems get out of whack.
With that in mind, the startling news that’s been recently surfacing is about something called prebiotics and probiotics. This hot button topic is causing a stir over just how beneficial it could actually be for us.
It turns out that adding probiotics to what we take in can actually improve how we feel across an extremely wide spectrum from our immune system to our mood state and more…
THE MOST DISTINGUISHED AND RESPECTED MEDICAL INSTITUTIONS IN THE WORLD ARE ALL NOW STARTING TO WEIGH IN ON PROBIOTICS. Even Harvard, Yale, and Oxford have all investigated probiotics.
On top of that interest among the rest of the scientific, medical and health communities is spiking because of how much potential probiotics is starting to showing to be able to benefit us.
So what ARE probiotics?
Before we discuss probiotics themselves we first need to specifically talk about our digestive system briefly. Astonishingly as you’ll find out, our digestive system is NOT just for digesting food and eliminating waste from our bodies…
Lining both our stomach and intestines are an amazing number of 100 trillion total bacterial microrganisms. And out of these trillions of tiny microorganisms, 99% of them are only 30 to 40 different types of species of bacteria.
In the past it was known that these microscopic bacteria were essential for a healthy digestive system and a strong immune system. However, because of their highly significant depth of impact on metabolic activity, they have been even been called by some researchers the “forgotten organ”.
Fascinatingly, as more and more research is being performed it looks like we are only just starting to get a complete understanding of their importance on our overall total health.
According to initial evidence, this extremely special overwhelmingly massive army of microscopic health are so influential that they can positively affect not only our digestive health, but even our mental health, stress, illness, metabolism and excitingly likely much (much) more than that.
Now that we quickly went over our amazingly complex digestive system, you’re probably still wondering, “what are probiotics?” The World Health Organization defined probiotics in 2001 as “live microorganisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health beneﬁt on the host”.
Nobel Prize Winner Elie Metchnikoff, who said that probiotics
"replace harmful microbes with useful ones".
Probiotics has even been discovered to even possibly play a critical role in stress – and maybe even how we react to it. A May 27th article in ScienceDaily.com featured a story by which scientists found correlations between temperament and the presence of specific types of intestinal bacteria in both girls and boys.
Now that you know about how these cutting edge probiotics were discovered by a Nobel Prize winner, has been researched by Harvard, Yale, Oxford and has been purposely included by me as a critical component of the PowerPack3, you'll be glad to know exactly what goes into every container!
Active Probiotic Strands Included In Every Individual PowerPack3 Packet:
Bifidobacterium infantis, also called B. lactis, gets its name because it is the dominant bacteria in the intestine of healthy breast-fed babies. Most authorities attribute much of the superior disease resistance of breast-fed babies to this species.
Bifidobacterium longum is among the probiotics that have been shown to improve immune responses in animals and humans. Increases in lymphocyte production, interleukin 1, 2 and 6, tumor necrosis factor, prostaglandin E1 production, serum total protein, albumin, globulin and gamma interferon have all been observed when this species is used as a supplement.
Lactobacillus bulgaricus is used to ferment natural yogurt and augments acidophilus in a protective colonization of the intestines. Populations that consume large quantities of yogurt report increased longevity and health and prolonged functioning.
Bifidobacterium bifidum is backed by extensive literature describing its many benefits.
Lactobacillus acidophilus is included in this blend as Dr. Khem Shahani’s patented DDS-1 strain. This special strain of L. acidophilus can survive in temperatures that destroy many other strains and it is resistant to the high concentrations of bile salts secreted by the gall bladder.
Lactobacillus brevis has been shown to produce a number of compounds (including Lactobacillin and Lactobrevin) that are active against a wide variety of pathogenic organisms.
Lactobacillus casei complements the growth of L. acidophilus, is a producer of the enzyme amylase (a carbohydrate digesting enzyme), and has been researched for its potential to improve digestion, and reduce lactose intolerance and constipation.
Lactobacillus lactis has been shown to stimulate the lactoperoxide thocyanate system in the intestine, which reduces the ability of E. coli to survive.
Lactobacillus plantarum constantly wages warfare with the “bad” bacteria and has the distinctive feature of synthesizing L-lysine, which strongly supports the immune system.
Lactobacillus reuteri has been extensively researched by one of the world’s top authorities, Dr. Marvin Spec, demonstrating that this species is a powerful producer of natural antibiotics.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus has the ability to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria and has been researched for its potential benefits to the genitourinary tract.
Lactobacillus salivarius has been shown to help in almost all chronic conditions related to the bowel and is especially effective in producing digestive enzymes in the intestines.
Streptococcus thermophilus produces lactase and is very efficient in breaking down milk products.
