Friendly Bacteria, Improves Immune Function, Reduces Cholesterol
Penicillin, the first antibiotic, was discovered in the early 20th Century. Since then, numerous other antibiotics have been discovered making them our primary weapon in the war against disease and infections. Sadly, the excessive use of those antibiotics has been instrumental in the rise of drug resistant bacteria resulting in infections that can no longer be treated effectively. That makes an increasing number of antibiotics ineffective against viral infections like HIV and hepatitis. This could be the reason why a growing number of medical professionals and natural healers are turning to Probiotics to keep their patients healthy.
The word Probiotic means “For Life”. It also means “friendly bacteria that supports the body’s defense against diseases”. Our bodies are host to billions of friendly bacteria. They play a significant role in digestion and work in harmony with our immune system to keep us healthy. Those friendly bacteria manufacture some of the B Vitamins which help to normalize hormone levels, help to reduce cholesterol levels, and guard against harmful pollutants. All of those attributes working together keep our immune system functioning at peak efficiency.
As we get older, we experience a decline in our good bacteria making us more susceptible to disease and illness. So it just makes good sense to restore those friendly bacteria back to the level of our youth by taking Probiotics. One of the major roles of our friendly bacteria is to protect us from fungi and yeasts. If left unchecked, they could cause the formation of toxic and carcinogenic (cancer producing) organisms. The easiest and most reliable way to get and keep friendly bacteria is to take a Probiotic supplement. Friendly bacteria could turn out to be your new best friend.
