BACTERIA: GOOD AND BAD

 

 

Current dietary habits, wrong food combinations, excessive use of sweets and other refined carbohydrates and indiscriminate use of antibiotics have yielded many complications to our health.  The sad note is, that 50% of all antibiotics sold are used in the raising of animals for slaughter.  They say this gives the animals a  faster weight gain with fewer infections.  What it gives us, is death of our normal  intestinal bacteria .  This yields symptoms of gas, indigestion, bloating,  and yeast overgrowth.

 

 Billions of beneficial micro-organisms are suppose to live in our intestinal track which keep the intestines clean by feeding  on the putrefaction, waste, fungus, yeast and other harmful bacteria.  These beneficial microorganisms also aid the body in producing the essential elements such as hormones, vitamins, and proteins that are needed to run our body .

 

Research is showing that each of these cultures attaches at different sights in the intestines and can live synergistically together.  Below is a list of the seven different bacteria along with their functions.

 

1.      LACTOBACILLUS ACIDOPHILUS is known to thwart the growth of pathogenic microorganisms, including Candida albicans, by producing both lactic acid and antibiotic compounds.  This probiotic also helps minimize the symptoms of dairy intolerance.

 

2 & 3.  BIFIDOBACTERIA (B, BIFIDUS also inhibit the growth of pathogenic organisms. Research shows that nitrite-producing organisms are specifically inhibited by these probiotics.

 

4. LACTOBACILLUS PLANTARUM produces a high percentage of lactic acid, which acts to inhibit harmful microorganisms.

 

5.  LACTOBACILLUS SALIVARIUS has been shown to produce alpha-galactosidase which can help reduce flatulence.  In addition, L-Salivarius has been shown to be highly resistant to tetracycline and chloramphenicol antibiotics.

 

6.  LACTOBACILLUS RUELERI has been shown to stabilize the intestinal flora and is used with L. acidophilus and bifidobacteria as extra support.  L.rueleri promotes additional benefits such as protection against pathogens, provision of certain nutrients and enzymatic reactions, involvement in tissue morphogenesis, peristalsis activity and interaction with the immune and endocrine systems.

 

7.  LACTOBACILLUS CASEI creates a desirable microbial balance and controls the production of toxins upon vital organs and body cells.  L.casei contributes to intestinal peristalsis and elimination of harmful amines from amino acids.  L.casei coats the intestinal mucosa and protects against invasion and activities of harmful organisms.  L-casei provides constant protection in the digestive tract to promote better nutrition and health.
