Probiotic Bacteria: Targeting the heart of your health problem

Before I talk about effective use of probiotic bacteria or how to buy a good probiotic supplement, I would like to get something straight. Ok… what I am about to share with you is something that too many general practitioners and the medical profession in general neglect either intentionally or unintentionally to our peril.

The root and initial cause of many discomforts or illnesses is... imbalance of your gastrointestinal tract or gut. This is usually caused by an antibiotics course doings its job, and at the same time whacking your gut flora out of balance. The bacteria population in your gut have important functions including maintaining balance in your colon (large intestine).

Although, there is no doubt that probiotics is most definitely an important part of the solution, there is only so much it can do. Probiotic supplements can work wonders for you if you take advantage of the other factors that aid their performance.

Please understand that your immune system is a collection of mechanisms that protect the body from parasites, viruses, harmful bacteria, etc., good bacteria is a part of these mechanisms. So it is to your benefit to top up these good guys with billions of probiotic bacteria or probiotic supplements. Now, will this be enough?...

NO!! good micro-organisms or the normal flora in your gut needs an ideal environment to flourish. This is where knowing what foods to eat comes into play. Now, I am just as picky as the next person. If a food does not taste great, I lose interest very quickly…

If you go on to my free minerals and vitamins food guide, I will show you how to select your own preferred healthy foods that hit the spot. When I say hit the spot, I mean hit the spot in terms of great taste, smell, and pampering the body with the minerals and vitamins your body needs to boost your immune system and energy to an all time high. I will also show you step by step how to restore balance to your digestive tract.

So how do you choose a good probiotic supplement with the right probiotic bacteria?

I have being using Advanced Probiotic Food Supplement from Neways for a while now and have experienced excellent results. Especially combined with eating the right foods.

Bear this in mind when choosing an effective probiotic supplement: A large Belgium study which took place in 2005, tested and confirmed that 87% of a large number of probiotic supplements tested did not contain strains that would survive and prove helpful to the body.

A good probiotic supplement should have the following strains of beneficial bacteria in the billions per capsule or serving to be effective:

  • Lactobacillus Acidophilus
  • Lactobacillus Plantarum
  • Lactobacillus Rhamnosus
  • Bifidobacterium Bifidum
  • Bifidobacterium Longum

For a probiotic supplement with higher concentration, I recommend... ...VSL# 3.
