Probiotic/Flora is a term that denotes the naturally occurring, "friendly" bacteria that contribute to the health and balance of the intestinal tract. These cultures of microorganisms are able to multiply in the intestinal tract to create a balanced microflora (healthy intestinal culture), thereby preventing the overgrowth of pathogenic bacteria in the intestinal tract. In addition, these "friendly" bacteria produce a natural antibiotic-like substance called bactericine, which helps to eliminate unwanted coliforms. This results in a healthy intestinal lining that is capable of optimum nutrient absorption.

Researchers have found links between bacterial imbalances in the gastrointestinal tract and many illnesses. If you have ever experienced any of the following symptoms or illnesses, you may have a bacterial imbalance:

Chronic fatigue / Diarrhea or constipation / Intestinal gas & indigestion / Rapid onset of osteoporosis / Poor immune response / Chronic bladder infections or vaginal infections / High cholesterol levels / Candida or yeast infections / Allergies / Skin conditions / Menstrual complaints / Chronic bad breath / Vitamin B deficiencies / Sensitivity to dairy products / Viral and bacterial infections / Colds & flu

Environmental factors and the consumption of certain foods and products can also cause the growth of pathogenic (harmful) bacteria, some of which are as follows:

  • Antibiotic usage
  • Excessive consumption of sugar and refined flours
  • Over consumption of carbohydrates
  • Intake of chlorinated water
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Use of over-the-counter and/or prescription anti-inflammatory drugs and painkillers
  • Frequent consumption of colas and other carbonated beverages
  • Excessive consumption of fatty foods and fatty meats
  • High stress levels
  • Exposure to chemicals or pollutants

Supplementing your usual diet with a probiotic supplement, rich in beneficial bacteria, can prevent conditions such as these from effecting your health.
