Probiotics are a species of health-promoting bacteria that we ALL require for proper digestion. They're also important for immune defense against illness-promoting "bad" bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
The term "probiotic" derives from Latin and Greek, meaning "for life." The World Health Organization (WHO) has defined probiotics as "live micro-organisms, which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host".1 To put this simply, probiotics, which are also known as "intestinal microflora," are "good bacteria" that live in our gastro-intestinal (GI) tract and aid in promoting optimal health and preventing illness. Although these bacteria live throughout our intestinal tract, they are found in the highest concentrations at the far end of the small intestine and in the large intestine.2
Research has demonstrated that the total number of bacteria living in a healthy adult amounts to ten times more bacteria than the total number of cells in the human body!3 In fact, a healthy intestinal tract should contain up to 1 kg (over two pounds) of bacteria.4 Most of these organisms are either neutral or health-promoting, but some have the potential to cause illness (e.g. Salmonella or E. Coli). In order to be healthy and prevent the colonization of harmful bacteria, our GI tracts must contain sufficient numbers of the health promoting beneficial bacteria.
Each bottle of our probiotics supplements contains 60 capsules, which is the equivalent of 30 servings.
