Research on Probiotics

The healthy human digestive tract contains over 500 different kinds (or strains) of beneficial bacteria. However, many factors in daily life kill off friendly bacteria.
Some of those factors are:

• Stress

• Chlorinated water

• Caffeine

• Alcohol

• Sugary or processed foods

• Antibiotics

• Antacids

• Over-the-counter and prescription medications

Once the good bacteria are destroyed, it may take up to three months for them to regenerate, and in some people they never seem to re-establish completely.* This can be a dangerous time because bad bacteria and other harmful elements may grow out of control without the good bacteria to keep them in check.* When this happens, a variety of undesirable symptoms and health problems can occur, such as improper digestion and nutrient absorption, gastrointestinal imbalances, as well as many other conditions.*
