Why We Need Probiotic Supplements
would think lovely Sarah's very life depends on the millions
of probiotics living in her intestinal tract. She lives
because she has formed a symbiotic alliance with probiotic
bodies are designed to function best with millions of friendly
probiotic bacteria living in our intestinal tract. In the past,
we replaced the probiotics in our system by constantly through
eating organic vegetables grown in dirt that was rich with soil-based
organisms or drinking raw milk straight from the cow. I myself
remember walking into the garden, pulling up young carrots, brushing
as much dirt off them as possible and eating them on the spot.
Think of the probiotics that were going into my system before
I could wash them down the kitchen drain or boil them for 15 to
we need probiotic supplements because there are so many influences
that prevent us from getting the probiotics our bodies need.
at least in the United States, many people eat a horrible diet
composed of highly processed foods that are filled with chemicals
and simple sugars and carbohydrates. Potato chips and Oreo's
are utterly devoid of anything living as are most of the boxed
and prepared foods sold in the grocery stores.
of the modern agricultural practices, such as the heavy use
of pesticides and fertilizers, the soil-based microorganisms
are no longer living in the dirt of most farms. We need probiotic
supplements to replace what is missing in our food.
use of antibiotics (remember the "anti" means "against"
biotics) directly kills the all bacteria in our intestinal tract.
chlorinated water destroys our intestinal flora. The reason
we put chlorine in the water is because it is able to kill bacteria
and, unfortunately, it gets the good ones along with the bad
when we drink it.
medical treatment of radiation and chemotherapy also destroys
our intestinal flora as well as damaging our immune systems.
Any course of chemotherapy absolutely must be followed with
heavy doses of probiotic supplements.
animals are continuously fed antibiotics to keep diseases down.
When people eat them they also are taking in these antibiotics
which then harm the beneficial bacteria in their systems.
people who are concerned with health use enemas and colonics
for detoxification. These practices can wash some of the good
bacteria out of their systems.
beverages tend to harm probiotics by killing them directly,
encouraging harmful bacteria and yeast overgrowth.
most people simply do not know that the health they experience
right now has a direct connection to the billions of beneficial
microorganisms that live in their gastrointestinal tract.
These are microorganisms which help the body to break down and
absorb foods, produce essential elements, while at the same time
helping to clean putrefaction and waste, plus kill harmful bacteria,
viruses, fungi and yeast.
