The following is a list of some of the known benefits of probiotics:
Hydrocarbons are broken down by probiotic bacteria which means the food is being split into its most basic elements. This allows almost total absorption through the digestive system. In this way probiotics dramatically increase overall nutrition and enhance rapid cellular growth and development.
The intestinal tract is cleaned by probiotics. The bacteria go under the layer of crud on the intestinal walls, attach themselves and dislodge the accumulated decay. This waste is then flushed out naturally.
Probiotics also produce many important enzymes and increase the availability of vitamins and nutrients, especially Vitamin B, Vitamin K, lactase, fatty acids and calcium.
Another one of the benefits of probiotics is that the bacteria strengthen the immune system. Because of this support to the immune system, they have been used as a support by people who are working to alleviate allergies, chronic fatigue syndrome and systemic candida.
Constipation is quickly relieved by probiotics and the bowel movements become normalized, which means diarrhea is also reduced.
These good bacteria produce specific proteins that act as antigens. The reservoirs of nonspecific antigens are then available for the immune system to use in battling all kinds of different disease conditions.
When probiotics attach themselves to the intestinal walls they produce a mildly acidic environment that slows the growth of disease-causing bacteria. This also helps the immune system because it is freed from some of the work in the intestines and can carry on its work in the rest of the body.
Probiotic bacteria work in symbiosis with tissue and organ cells to metabolize proteins and help eliminate toxic wastes from the body.
Additional benefits of probiotics come from the fact that they stimulate B-Lymphocyte and related anti-body production. They produce huge pools of extra anti-bodies, ready to protect and defend against infection.
Probiotic bacteria produce Lactoferrin as a by-product of their metabolism. Lactoferrin is an iron-binding protein essential to retrieving iron from foods we eat. Increased Lactoferrin can help relieve iron-assimilation deficiencies.
They help to kill viruses and parasites thus providing benefits of increased health.
Some people taking probiotics have experienced lowered cholesterol.
Allergies and skin problems are aided by taking probiotic bacteria.
Yeast and fungal infections are prevented, and sometimes eliminated with supplements of probiotics.
They also stimulate the body's own production of alpha-interferon, a key regulator of our immune response.
Since probiotics clean the colon, bad breath and body odor are greatly reduced. This is because the lungs and skin will be utilized by the body to help eliminate toxins when the intestinal tract is clogged and functioning poorly.
There are so many benefits to be had!
