What Are Probiotic's?

The human body holds a vast internal ecosystem consisting of millions of living microorganisms that coexist, sometimes harmoniously and sometimes disruptively.

This vast internal ecosystem, called by many researchers our human intestinal flora, dramatically influences, and to a certain degree even directs, every individual's personal state of health and well being. This includes our physical and mental health, our metabolism, and quite possibly, our life span.

Over 400 distinct species of microorganisms inhabit the various regions of the human digestive tract, making up nearly four pounds of every individual's total body weight.

hikingIf this ecosystem is functioning properly it guards your body against harmful bacteria, yeast and viruses. It also stimulates the function of the entire digestive system and produces essential vitamins and regulates their levels.

Given our exposure to stress, toxic chemicals, antibiotics, steroidal drugs and carcinogenic substances, it is a must that we proactively guard the health of our gut and supplement with probiotic's every day!

bacteriaDue to the global recognition and support that probiotic's are now receiving from the scientific community, many manufacturers are taking shortcuts to market by creating products that appear to offer fantastic bacteria counts to an uneducated public.

The easiest way to tell if the bacteria are still in a natural organic state (meaning they have not been tampered with or altered) would be to simply ask:
