What is a Probiotic and How Does it Affect Our Immune System Health?
The term "probiotic" refers to bacteria that live within our bodies and perform beneficial functions. Research is focusing on how the bacteria that live within our bodies affects our health and our immune system.
Probiotics are Good Bacteria in Your Gut
Probiotics are beneficial bacteria in the gut that help to digest a variety of nutrients and fats, detoxify, and reduce the inflammation in the gut wall lining by preventing overgrowth of other organisms that are more destructive.
Consider the bacteria in your gut tract like another organ system... and its own ecosystem! There are more bacteria in your body than your body's total number of cells! These bacteria have more genetic material than we do and are performing more metabolic functions than our body performs.
This is a "cutting-edge" concept, but it may be that these bacteria are essential for our own life and wellbeing by performing functions that we cannot perform, teaching the immune system what is normal and what is foreign, and producing necessary nutrients that we cannot otherwise obtain.
SupplementRelief provides several quality probiotic supplements including NuMedica Tri-Flora Plus, NuMedica Gluten Support Tri-Flora Plus, NuMedica Power Greens or Power Reds and NuMedica Power Fruits & Veggies for Kid's.
If you're interested in looking at the research abstracts (these are short summaries of the research) you should go to the government's searchable medical database - PubMed. DON'T BE AFRAID!! You will be amazed at what kind of research exists on nutrition, hormones, and a wide variety of "natural" therapies and the database is very search friendly.
