How Do Probiotics Work?
About 60-70% of your body’s immune system is located in your gastrointestinal (GI) tract – to help prevent molds, viruses, and other harmful substances from gaining access to your body. Your GI tract naturally contains both “good” bacteria (known as probiotics or microflora) and “bad” bacteria. Researchers recommend that you maintain a healthy ratio of approximately 85% good bacteria to 15% bad bacteria.
Probiotics are Good Bacteria
Probiotics inhibit the growth of bad bacteria, promote good digestion, reduce toxins, and boost your immune system. So keeping a ratio of many more good bacteria to bad bacteria is crucial to staying healthy.
So how can you get more good bacteria into your GI system? You can get them by eating certain foods, or by taking probiotic supplements like Probonix.
When you take a probiotic supplement, millions of bacterial cultures (often referred to as CFUs – colony forming units) are swallowed and enter your stomach. This is where it gets tough, and where the effective probiotics are separated from the weak.
Because the harsh acids and bile in your stomach can be brutal on the bacteria in a probiotic supplement, for a probiotic to be effective, the highest numbers of live bacterial cultures as possible must survive through the stomach and into your intestinal tract. So probiotics manufacturers look for every possible way to get as many live CFUs through to your intestines as possible. And most fail substantially!
Probonix is currently one of the only scientifically-tested supplement proven to deliver a maximum effective dose of live bacteria into the GI tract. This is because the medical team at Humarian has developed a breakthrough technology in which they protect the bacteria cultures in an acid coating which ensures that a much higher percentage survive the harsh stomach environment.
The bacteria cultures that survive into the GI tract can then begin to do their job. As they attach to the walls of your intestine and begin to colonize, they begin helping optimizing the digestion of food and the absorption of nutrients. They help your body produce vitamins, absorb minerals, and aid in the elimination of toxins.
Maintaining your good-to-bad bacteria ratio then keeps you healthy. The way to do this is by eating healthier foods, exercising, and of course, using a probiotic supplement until your habits have changed enough to ensure that your body can maintain the proper levels of good bacteria. In fact, some people remain on a lower dose of Probonix indefinitely to maintain optimum health!
Probonix is currently one of the only probiotics that has been scientifically tested and proven to deliver live bacteria cultures into the intestinal tract where they belong. See the test result here!
