What are probiotics and why do I need them?
Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that, when ingested, help support healthy microbial balance in the gut. * Healthy human intestines contain billions of microorganisms both good and potentially harmful. The good bacteria in the intestines are considered an integral part of normal immune system support.
Probiotics are important because they can synthesize certain vitamins and short-chain fatty acids to support a healthy intestinal lining and bolster immunity. * When your intestinal lining is occupied by healthy beneficial flora, it leaves unwelcome microorganisms deprived of both space and nutrients.
Healthy people usually have a ratio of approximately 85% good and 15% potentially harmful organisms in the intestinal tract. In some cases, even those who appear to be well might have an unfavorable ratio as a result of daily exposure to environmental toxins and a modern lifestyle. For example, taking antibiotics and drinking chlorinated water, may often change the optimal microbial balance essential for good health.
Garden of Life believes that probiotics are their most beneficial when they are not separated from their food source. The probiotics in Primal Defense are cultured with whole foods and then left intact. Many probiotic companies separate the probiotics from their food source. This is why so many probiotics need to be kept refrigerated. Once stripped of their food source, probiotics need to be kept refrigerated in order to remain viable. But what happens when these probiotics are introduced to the acidic environment of the stomach that is at 98.6 degrees? For this reason, Garden of Life believes the probiotic food source is as important to the delivery of the benefits of probiotics as the probiotics themselves.
