What are Probiotics? Not all bacteria's are harmful. There are several strains of bacteria that are beneficial in supporting our health, balance and well-being. This group of friendly bacteria are often referred to as "Probiotics", meaning "for life". Probiotics naturally live in and on the human body. Many colonize the intestine and have a helpful role in supporting the immune system and healthy digestion.*
Your daily probiotic support, with Jerusalem Artichoke, Dr. Nuzum's Living contains nine strains of good bacteria in dosage servings convenient to take throughout the day. Not all probiotic strains are the same. One of the key strains in Living is DDS-1 Lactobacillus acidophilus. Research has shown this strain to: Help digest proteins and carbohydrates and produces B vitamins and folic acid (essential for fetal development). It produces enzymes that help reduce lactose intolerance and natural beneficial acids that help digest food as well as fight infections. Its a natural antibiotic- like substances that kill pathogenic bacteria help the body to absorb calcium. It inhibits multiplication of cancerous cells and Jerusalem Artichoke serves as a potential food source "prebiotic" for the friendly bacteria to thrive on.
Major factors affect the natural balance of bacteria:
LIFESTYLE. Stress, alcohol, caffeine and medications can alter the natural healthy balance of the bacteria in the gut.
TRAVEL. Travel to foreign countries can increase your exposure to various strains of bacteria that you may not typically come into contact with at home.
DIET. Probiotics are found in fermented and cultured foods such as raw sauerkraut, fermented vegetables (cabbage, cucumbers, onions), miso and raw kefir. Traditionally, many societies around the world consumed these foods regularly. However, in today's world, these products have been replaced by pasteurized, cooked and processed foods - which generally do not contain probiotics.
