Probiotics are microorganisms living within the body while contributing positively to the organism’s health. These friendly bacteria are also called intestinal flora.

There are ten times more probiotic bacteria in the organism than cells.
This clearly means that the human organism is more microbial than cellular. Friendly bacteria make up approximately 70 percent of the immune system. Some scientists suggest that the DNA of probiotic bacteria may be more important than the human cells’ DNA in predicting vulnerabilities and possible future diseases.

Around one hundred trillion bacteria live in the digestive system, approximately 3.5 pounds worth. The digestive tract contains about 450 to 500 different bacteria species. About twenty species make up about 75 percent of the population being many of these resident strains attached to the intestinal walls.

The majority of probiotics live in the colon and billions live in the mouth and small intestines. Other populations of bacteria and yeast can also live within joints, armpits, toenails, and vagina.

Probiotics have shown to support the immune system. They could help rebuild cellular functions, immune cell activity, and help stimulate better immune responses. In addition, research has confirmed that probiotics may be able to stimulate the effects of vaccines. Because probiotics help identify pathogens entering the organism, they can stimulate immune functions.

Science is still discovering the complex mechanisms and many benefits derived from the more than 500 species of still largely unresearched micro-
organisms that inhabit the body from head to toe with vast populations living
in the intestinal tract.

Probiotics+™ contains 40 billion active microorganisms to enhance and balance the intestinal microflora. This product promotes digestive function by relieving intestinal gas, bloating, and constipation. It also supports a healthy immune function. Furthermore, this supplement provides prebiotic support with organic inulin and FOS (fructooligosaccharides) for probiotic growth and colonization in the intestinal tract.

Probiotics+™ contains the following strains and additional compounds:

Lactobacillus acidophilus - the most familiar probiotic and by far the most researched probiotic species to date. They are one of the main residents of the human gut, although supplemented strains will be transient. They are found in the mouth and vagina. L. acidophilus produces a variety of therapeutic substances, including acidolin, acidophillin, lactobacillin, lactocidin, and others.

Lactobacillus casei - transient bacteria within the human organism.
Commonly used in the food industry (cheese-making, fermenting green olives, and milk products). L. casei is found naturally in raw milk and in colostrum. L. casei have shown to reduce allergy symptoms and increase immune response.

Lactobacillus paracasei - commonly found in the mouth and intestinal tract
as well as in many dairy products. L. paracasei can have positive effects on digestion and basic immune functions. It also offers preventive benefits for diarrhea, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and other conditions. There is evidence of its ability to fight vaginosis and vaginal yeast infections. Recent research has suggested that L. paracasei may able to help reduce weight gain by changing the structure of gut microbiota disrupted by high fat diets toward a microbiota of an individual with a more balanced and healthier diet. Other studies have demonstrated that L. paracasei could diminish storage of body fat.

Lactobacillus rhamnosus - a common ingredient in many yogurts and other probiotic foods. L. rhamnosus have also been studied over many years.
Much of the research has focused around a particular strain, L. rhamnosus GG. This type of strain has been shown in many studies to stimulate the immune system. This strain also has demonstrated to have good intestinal wall adhesion properties.

Lactobacillus salivarius - typical residents in most humans. They are found
in the intestines of other animals. L. salivarius dwells in the mouth, small intestine, colon, and vagina. They are hardy bacteria that can live in both oxygen and non-oxygen environments. L. salivarius is one of the few bacteria species that can also thrive in salty environments.

Bifidobacterium bifidum - found in human intestines and by far the largest residents in terms of colonies. They are also sometimes inhabitants of healthy vaginas. Their greatest populations occur in the colon. They also inhabit the lower small intestinal tract. Breast milk typically contains large populations of B. bifidum along with other bifidobacteria. B. bifidum are highly competitive with yeasts such as Candida albicans. B. bifidum populations are extremely important to the health of the liver, as has been shown in research. They produce an array of compounds such as bifidin and various antimicrobial biochemicals such as formic acid. B. bifidum populations can be severely damaged by the use of pharmaceutical antibiotics.

Bifidobacterium breve - normal inhabitants of the human digestive tract, living mostly within the colon. They produce prolific acids and B vitamins. Like the other bifidobacteria, they also reduce ammonia-producing bacteria in the colon, aiding the health of the liver.

Bifidobacterium longum - one of the top four bifidobacteria inhabitants.
They are also normal inhabitants of the human digestive tract. They produce acetic, lactic, and formic acid. Like other bifidobacteria, they resist the growth of pathogenic bacteria and thus reduce the production of harmful nitrites and ammonia. B. longum also produces B vitamins. Breast milk contains significant B. longum.

Bifidobacterium infantis - normal residents of the human intestines, especially among children. Infants colonize significant number of B. infantis in their early years. They also colonize in the vagina, leading to the newborn’s first exposure to protective probiotic bacteria (before the various pathogenic bacteria of the outside world get in).

Inulin and FOS (fructooligosaccharides) have shown to be effective prebiotics. Because of their recognized prebiotic properties and stimulation of bifidobacteria, both are increasingly used in the development of dietary supplements and foods. Examples include drinks, yogurts, and biscuits. Because of the well-known inhibitory effects that bifidobacteria can exert against gut pathogens, one of the most important aspects of prebiotic intake is fortification of the gut flora to resist serious infections.
