While most people assume they have a healthy intestinal tract, lifestyle and environmental factors can compromise the digestive system. When the ratio of good bacteria to bad is out of balance, problems begin to arise.
Designed with a high concentration of Lactobacillus acidophilus, this formula ensures that your body has adequate amounts of this important probiotic strain. L. acidophilus produces enzymes that help you digest proteins, carbohydrates and fats. This bacterial strain also produces lactic acid, which supports the gastrointestinal and immune systems. It can be found in yogurt and other dairy products, but it is available in higher concentrations in supplement form. Each capsule of Super 8 Plus Probiotic provides 11.25 billion colony forming units of L. acidophilus. If the bodyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s supply of this important strain is too low, lactose intolerance often occurs.
World-renowned nutrition expert Udo Erasmus has created 7 different formulas to provide the right probiotic supplement for every member of the family. The type and amount of probiotic bacterial strains needed for best results will change at different stages of life and under different health conditions.
UdoÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s ChoiceÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â® Probiotic Blends are best taken after meals. All of the bacterial strains chosen have been specially developed and tested for their gastric resistance. Unlike the live bacterial content of many foods being marketed today, the probiotic strains in UdoÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s blends are able to survive the stomach acids to reach the intestinal tract at full potency.
Why do we need probiotic supplements?
While most people assume they have a healthy intestinal tract, lifestyle and environmental factors can compromise the digestive system. This allows undesirable bacteria to take hold and cause problems. Such factors may include poor eating habits, chlorinated drinking water, stress, the use of antibiotics in food production and medical treatments, and a number of other factors, including health problems and simply aging, which can greatly reduce the number of friendly bacteria in the body.
When the ratio of good bacteria to bad is out of balance, problems begin to arise such as poor absorption of nutrients and intestinal toxicity. This can result in gas, bloating, diarrhea and constipation, among other discomforts. If this imbalance is left untreated, the symptoms can become chronic and can compromise the immune system and lead to other serious health concerns.
