Everyone in our modern, industrialized culture would benefit from daily supplementation of probiotics. In a globalised modern culture, many Asian countries adopt Western diets, filled with sugar, fatty meat and chemicals, and along with our use of antibiotics, give unfriendly flora the greater advantage.

How do you know if you have an imbalance, or could otherwise benefit from probiotics? Chances are if you’ve been sick or have taken antibiotics, you need to repopulate the good bacteria in your system. If you have stress in your lives, are exposed to pollution, have skin and breathing sensitivities, have headaches, migraines, yeast infections, joint aches, bad breath, symptoms of PMS, urinary tract infections, asthma, anorexia or bulimia, bloating or indigestion problems, lack exercise and have an unhealthy diet or are exposed to chemicals, preservatives in the foods we consume; a supplementation of probiotics daily, will greatly assist in your ailments and improve your health.

Here’s another 10 resons why we need Probiotics

(1) Enhance immunity – a double-blind clinical test involving patients in intensive care proved that viable (alive) probiotics prevented multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS), the number one cause of mortality among intensive care patients.

(2) The immune protection of mother’s milk is enhanced if the mother takes probiotics during or before pregnancy. If breast feeding is impossible, then adding probiotics and prebiotics (what probiotic bacteria feed on) to a baby formula free from fluoridated water and sweeteners can be tried.

(3) Probiotics can reverse ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, inflammatory bowel disease, and other gut inflammations that occur from a lack of sufficient probiotics.

(4) Celiac disease or gluten sensitivity (GS) symptoms are handled by adding probiotics.

(5) Processed foods and low fiber diets allow the pathogenic bacteria to overwhelm the good bacteria and diminish colon function.

(6) When pathogenic bacteria upset the 80/20 balance of probiotic to bad bacteria, yeast infections such as Candida flourish.

(7) A healthy gut flora balance helps prevent cancer by nourishing enzymes that inhibit tumor production throughout the body.

(8) Sufficient probiotic intestinal flora prevents radiation damage from X-rays and CT scans to the large and small intestines.

(9) GMOs are used in many processed foods and antibiotics are in lots of our non-organic meat and dairy products. They both destroy probiotic bacteria, making it necessary to add probiotic materials back if you’ve had any of those foods.

(10) Dr. Natasha Campbell-Mcbride discovered how to cure her son of autism through a diet that restored his probiotic levels and heal his inflammatory conditions. She developed GAPS, gut and psychology syndrome, confirming the connection with gut health and mental health.
