Probiotics and Good Bacteria. Not a term you hear every day but an important word nonetheless to your overall health. Probiotics are live micro-organisms, such as those found in FloraFood, that have been shown to be beneficial in digestion but, of late, have also been linked to the prevention of some allergic conditions.
There are more than 100 trillion bacteria in the digestive system, some friendly and some unfriendly. The bacteria in the body weigh about 4 pounds (1.8 kg). When the unfriendly bacteria prevail, the results are not good – gas, bloating, diarrhoea, intestinal toxicity, constipation, and malabsorption of nutrients. FloraFood is a natural way to enhance the good bacteria in the system and help rid the body of the bad bacteria.
FloraFood is basic in concept, simple in execution. Taking the product provides the body with friendly bacteria.
Lactobacillus acidophilus: It flourishes in the small intestine where it counteracts bacteria and micro-organisms associated with urinary tract problems. It also aids in developing defenses against bacteria and infections, thus boosting the immune system. In addition, antibiotics destroy both good and bad bacteria and this bacteria aids in re-colonizing the good bacteria. Lactobacilli in general produce substances that make the intestinal tract unsuitable for an unfriendly bacteria to survive.
Bifidobacteria: These are friendly bacteria living mainly in the large intestine. They fight internal disorders, boost the immune system, and aid in the production of B vitamins. There are two types in FloraFood, bifidobacterium bifidum, which boosts the body’s immune system and neutralizes unhealthy enzymes, and bifidobacterium longum, which thrives in the intestines and aids in promoting bowel regularity.
Miriam McDade, an AIM Director from Centereach, New York, understands the value of introducing good bacteria into the system in times of need. “I had a very bad reaction to food I ate which was cooked in canola oil. I had read that canola oil has negative effects on digestion and intestines but had never personally experienced any before. I was violently sick from the canola oil. I had not had an upset stomach in 20 years. I had repeated episodes of vomiting and diarrhea throughout the night about every two hours until the morning. In the morning my sponsor suggested that I take FloraFood by opening the capsules. I took the contents of two capsules mixed in water. The vomiting and diarrhea both stopped right after taking the FloraFood. I took two more capsules later in the day and I felt fine after that.”
While the digestive assistance value of the ingredients in FloraFood has been demonstrated through research, a study suggests the bifidobacterium bifidum “plays a role in suppressing certain types of allergic conditions.” According to an October 2005 study, “By enhancing the immune system with probiotics (oral servings of bifidobacterium bifidum, which reduced a component in the blood that causes allergic reactions), we can actually change conditions in the body, making allergic reaction less likely.”
But FloraFood remains foremost a digestive savior. It cleans the intestinal tract, purifies the colon, and promotes regular bowel movements. It creates lactic acid (thus preventing bad bacteria from gaining a foothold in certain parts of the body), helps produce antibiotics and antifungals, and plays a role in the destruction of molds, viruses, and parasites in addition to increasing the number of immune system cells. It also assists in the manufacture of vitamins and helps maintain healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and breaks down and rebuilds hormones.
FloraFood is such a simple concept, introducing friendly bacteria into the system, but it packs a whole lot of worthwhile outcomes.
