Probiotic 50B provides a 50 billion CFU per capsule blend of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria to promote digestive and immune health.
Hippocrates is credited with saying, “All disease begins in the gut.” Research over the last decade has revealed that gut health is the cornerstone to overall health and a strong immune system. This is because a healthy gut plays such a critical role in overall health. For instance, the beneficial bacteria in the gut help synthesize vitamin B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, folic acid, biotin and vitamin K and help metabolize certain drugs.
Stress, a poor diet, contaminated food, chlorinated water, antibiotics, and numerous other factors can alter the bacterial flora in the intestinal tract. Overgrowth of bad bacteria in the intestines can be a contributing factor to many chronic diseases and stress the body’s immune system.
When you take into account the diet of most Americans consisting of little fiber and an excess of sugar, salt, and processed foods, it's easy to understand how pathogenic bacteria can gain a strong foothold. To make matters worse, very few people get enough vegetables and/or beneficial essential fatty acids such as those found in certain fish (including salmon, mackerel, and herring) and flaxseed.
Imbalanced bacteria in the intestines support the growth of pathogenic bacteria, which are constantly spewing toxins into the system. Additionally, these pathogenic bacteria and toxins can damage the intestines, resulting in proteins from undigested food getting into the bloodstream. In turn, this causes your immune system to work overtime just to keep things under control and can eventually result in autoimmune disease.
The best method of establishing and maintaining a healthy bacterial flora is the consumption of fermented foods like homemade sauerkraut, yogurt, consuming plenty of fiber and resistant starch.
For most people taking a high quality probiotic is important as well, especially if you have a chronic disease, suffer from allergies, or have any type of autoimmune issues.
