Probiotics: Silent Heroes of Health

A healthy intestine contains about one kg of helpful bacteria. These silent heroes of health help with digestion, enable nutrient absorption, gobble up harmful waste products, produce a variety of vitamins, protect our immune system, and much more.

Everyone has good and bad bacteria some of both, and that’s fine as long as there is a balance. However, if the good bacteria diminish, then the bad can reproduce rapidly and cause problems.

Modern living has altered this balance in almost every one. This imbalance may occur due to using antibiotics that eliminate all sorts of bacteria indiscriminately, toxic chemicals & poor diet, overuse of alcohol, digestive problems and stress.

Yeasts are one of the organisms that overgrow the first chance they get. They thrive on sweet foods and dairy products we eat and expel their waste, a toxic emission that makes us bloated, gassy, and irritated.

There are many studies that show the importance of good intestinal flora for all aspects of health. Mothers who take probiotics give birth to children who don’t get sick, and athletes with good intestinal flora recover faster from injury.

By supplementing with probiotics you can ensure the healthy maintenance of intestinal microflora. Preliminary research suggests that combinations of probiotic strains may be more effective than individual strains.

With our Brilliant Biotic formulation we focused on delivering a high quality and gentle probiotic designed for everyday use, using a combination of specific and well researched strains such as the following:
Lactobacillus acidophilus – supports the gut health of those with bloating, as well as supporting and maintaining bacterial gut health in people with conditions such as Candida overgrowth. Bifidobacterium has been extensively researched to support natural digestion and bowel regularity. Lactobacillus bulgaricus is a helpful natural bacterium, that can fight harmful bacteria that may invade your digestive system. Living in your gastrointestinal tract, this micro-organism helps neutralize toxins and kill harmful bacteria by producing its own natural antibiotics.

While taking probiotics is a step in the right direction, gut health is a complex issue, and there is no single magic bullet. Damage to the balance of healthy intestinal flora can often not be fixed through taking probiotics alone. Rather a holistic approach is best:

Only when you eliminate the foods that feed pathogenic bacteria, use natural antimicrobial foods or good quality supplements, and provide live bacteria of the right strains and in the right number can you truly rebuild the intestinal flora successfully. In this respect, dietary changes and detox programmes are often helpful, but all too often not mentioned!

While, its best to focus on whole food sources for our vitamins and minerals, there are many reasons why supplements can be helpful and necessary. Our busy lives often prevent us from getting optimal levels of fresh foods, oftentimes are soil is depleted of nutrients, and we need an extra boost.

Probiotics are good for?
If you eat processed foods, have taken a lot of antibiotics or prescription medications, or were not breast fed as a child, research has shown that you most likely need an extra supply of beneficial bacteria in the gut. People who travel frequently on airplanes will also benefit from a daily dose, along with eating lots of probiotic rich foods.
