WHAT EXACTLY ARE PROBIOTICS?
Probiotic bacteria are the good bacteria that line your digestive tract and support your body’s ability to absorb nutrients and fight infection. There are in fact 10 times more probiotics in your gut than cells in the rest of your body.
When there is an imbalance in your gut from low levels of good bacteria, it may become a breeding ground for bad bacteria, yeast, viruses, fungi, and parasites.
Your good bacteria is also responsible for a number of other benefits including:
- Producing Vitamin B-12, butyrate and Vitamin K2
- Crowding out bad bacteria, yeast and fungi
- Creating enzymes that destroy harmful bacteria
- Stimulating secretion of IgA and regulatory T cells
When there is an imbalance in your gut from low levels of good bacteria, it becomes a breeding ground for bad bacteria, yeast, viruses, fungi and parasites. The only way to replace the essential good bacteria in your body is to eliminate foods that feed bad bacteria and start consuming probiotic-rich foods and probiotic supplements. That’s where Probiotic 40 steps in.
