The delicate balance of flora in the gut is the building blocks of your immune system. Probiotics, flora, good bacteria, acidophilus are all names given to the healthy bacteria that live in our digestive tract. The “good bacteria” does many things in the body such as fights yeast, parasites, bacteria and viruses. Probiotics improve absorption of vitamins and minerals in the intestines. Probiotics digest old fecal matter that is hardened on the intestinal lining. Hormones produced in the gut influence mental health. Many patients do not realize that neurotransmitters such as serotonin are produced in the digestive tract by your “good bacteria”. Any man, women or child with irritability, ADD, ADHD or depression should address the health of their intestines by replacing probiotics.
Replacing the intestinal flora in the gut can lessen symptoms such as: allergies to food and environment, asthma, eczema, candida, food cravings, vaginal yeast infection and thrush. Flora should be replaced after the use of steroids or antibiotics and various other medications.
HLC Synbiotic Intensive is a combination of FOS and probiotics that supports a healthy intestinal microflora. The intestines contain more than 400 bacterial species, and bacterial balance is necessary for a healthy intestinal tract. Probiotics promote naturally healthy microflora composition and support intestinal function. Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium promote optimal digestive health.
Prebiotics, including FOS, are fermented by microbes in the colon. They increase short-chain fatty acid production, which provides energy to colon cells, and support healthy mucin levels to reinforce the epithelial barrier. Consequently, synbiotic products promote the growth of existing beneficial bacteria and supplemented probiotic strains. In a randomized, placebo-controlled trial involving 52 adults, daily probiotic supplementation supported optimal gastrointestinal health.
Dosage: One third to one whole sachet mixed in water each evening.
