This substance can be found in a variety amount of foods such as vegetables, fruits, and herbs. Inulin is in the class of compounds known as fructans and is a naturally occurring oligosaccharide, meaning it has several simple sugars linked together.Since inulin is not absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract, it is considered to be a fibre. Inulin has a sweeter taste to it, so some people may definitely use this as a sweetener for a variety of things.Since it is a fibre and is not digested in the gastrointestinal tract, it goes down to the large intestine where your bacteria uses it to prosper, making it considered to be prebiotic.Examples of foods that contain inulin:✓ Sweet potatoes ✓ Asparagus ✓ Wheat ✓ Onions ✓ Bananas ✓ GarlicInulin Fiber Uses Studies have linked the consumption of inulin-type prebiotics to many other health benefits as well, including:✓ better infant nutrition, growth and development ✓ gastrointestinal health ✓ colon cancer prevention ✓ better blood sugar control ✓ healthier cholesterol levels and improved lipid metabolism ✓ improved bone mineralization ✓ protection from fatty liver disease ✓ protection from obesity ✓ better immunityGood bacteria basically live off of fibers within the diet, which is why high-fiber foods like fruit, leafy greens and beans/legumes are said to be good for gut health.Is There a Dietary Requirement for Inulin?While there isn’t a requirement or recommended amount of inulin you should aim for every day, consuming it regularly can contribute to your daily fiber intake. People around the world are believed to consume inulin every single day in the form of natural plant foods and some packaged products. Archaeological evidence from the Chihuahuan Desert near New Mexico suggests that ancient populations living in this region who ate plant-based diets probably consumed about 135 grams of prebiotic inulin-type fructans every single day!Are There Any Inulin Side Effects or Interactions?Inulin is non-allergic and safe for most people to consume considering it’s completely natural and present in many foods. Studies have shown that chicory is rarely allergenic, and when foods containing inulin cause reactions, it’s usually due to other compounding ingredients like peanuts, milk, soy, shellfish and wheat.That being said, some people don’t react very well to eating high amounts of certain types of fibers or carbohydrates. Inulin is considered a FODMAP, a class of carbohydrates that are rapidly fermented in the colon and can produce gas and digestive issues for some people.For people with sensitives to FODMAPs (like those with irritable bowel syndrome on an IBS diet or who have inflammatory bowel disorders), drawing water into the colon in large quantities can lead to worsened symptoms, like cramps, gas and bloated stomach.

There have been many promising studies involving L. casei.Researchers in a 2007 trial studied a probiotic drink containing L. casei, L. bulgaricus, and S. thermophiles. They concluded that it may reduce the incidence of antibiotic-associated diarrhea and C. difficile-associated diarrhea. No adverse events were reported.A 2003 study showed that a probiotic drink containing Lactobacillus casei Shirota was a beneficial adjunctive therapy for people with chronic constipation. A later study looked at people with Parkinson’s disease. That one revealed that regular intake of milk fermented with Lactobacillus casei Shirota can improve bowel habits of people with the disease.Researchers for a 2014 clinical trial found that L. casei supplements can help alleviate symptoms and improve inflammatory cytokines in women with RA.There is a growing body of research into L. casei and other probiotics. But to date, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) hasn’t approved L. casei or any other probiotic for the treatment of a specific health problem.When you don’t have enough of the good bacteria, adding more L. Casei to your diet can help regulate your digestive system.Probiotic supplements containing L. Casei are used to prevent or treat diarrhea. This includes infectious diarrhea, traveler’s diarrhea, and antibiotic-associated diarrhea.It may also have some effect on other digestive problems, including:✓ colic ✓ constipation ✓ Crohn’s disease ✓ inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) ✓ irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) ✓ lactose intolerance ✓ ulcerative colitisL. casei may also be useful for:✓ acne, hives, and fever blisters ✓ allergies, eczema, and dermatitis ✓ cold, flu, and respiratory infection ✓ ear infection (otitis media) ✓ oral health problems, such as plaque, gingivitis, and canker sores ✓ Helicobacter pylori infection, which causes stomach ulcers ✓ Lyme disease ✓ necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), a serious intestinal disease common in premature infants ✓ rheumatoid arthritis (RA) ✓ urinary tract and vaginal infections[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section i_type="material" i_icon_material="vc-material vc-material-done" add_icon="true" title="Lactobacillus Rhamnosus" tab_id="1517317236106-f2629745-23c5"][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1517317386863{padding-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #ffffff !important;}"]What is Lactobacillus Rhamnosus?L. rhamnosus is great for the gastrointestinal system, but also for balancing our immune system.

Several L. plantarum strains have been shown to produce different antimicrobial compounds such as organic acids, hydrogen peroxide, diacetyl, and also bacteriocins and antimicrobial peptides, both denoted by a variable spectrum of action. In recent decades, the selection of microbial molecules and/or bacterial strains able to produce antagonistic molecules to be used as antimicrobials and preservatives has been attracting scientific interest, in order to eliminate or reduce chemical additives, because of the growing attention of consumers for healthy and natural food products.Lactobacillus Plantarum Improves?✓ Digestive health – Improves symptoms of digestive complains such as bloating, gas, cramping, diarrhea and constipation. ✓ Immune Function – Both resistance against colds and flu’s and cancer development ✓  Lowers Inflammation – Key for reducing auto-immunity ✓  Nutrient Absorption – Improves nutrient extraction from food ✓  Brain Development – Key for children developing healthy brains and preventing ADHD, Autism and other sensory disorders ✓  Mental Health and Mood – Reduces brain inflammation that is a factor in psychological issues such as depression, bipolar and schitzophrenia.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section i_type="material" i_icon_material="vc-material vc-material-done" add_icon="true" title=" Bifidobacterium Breve" tab_id="1516988196073-74da0541-938c"][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1517319201761{padding-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #ffffff !important;}"]What is Bifidobacterium Breve?Bifidobacterium breve (B. Breve) is one of the most helpful probiotic bacteria in the humb. breve probiotic body. Amongst probiotic bacteria, it is unique in its ability to compete with other harmful bacteria due to the large variety of molecules that it can digest. It makes up the majority of bacteria in the colons of babies that are breastfed, which is one of many reasons that breastfed babies tend to have healthier immune systems than non-breast fed babies. Some of the primary functions of B. breve in the digestive tract are to ferment sugars, produce lactic acid, and produce acetic acid, but B. breve serves a number of other important digestive and regulatory functions.Bifidobacterium Breve Benefits:Bifidobacterium Breve is essential for a proper colon functioning.

It is added to a variety of foods or dietary supplements as a probiotic due to its many health benefits. It is a gram-positive, branched rod-shaped bacterium that produces lactic acid from the fermentation of sugar in the gastrointestinal tract.Bifidobacterium longum provides many health benefits as a naturally-occurring bacterium and as a probiotic. The lactic acid produced by the bacteria increases the acidity of the digestive tract, which helps inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria. Bifidobacterium longum also has been shown to treat constipation, reduce inflammation associated with inflammatory bowel conditions, prevent high cholesterol levels and reduce the development of certain allergies, according to probiotic.org. According to a study in the April 1997 issue of “Carcinogenesis,” Bifidobacterium longum showed anticarcinogenic and antimutagenic properties and may help inhibit the development of colon cancer. Probiotic supplements are also beneficial in repopulating Bifidobacterium longum colonies in the digestive tract that have been destroyed by antibiotic use.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section i_type="material" i_icon_material="vc-material vc-material-done" add_icon="true" title=" Bifidobacterium Bifidum" tab_id="1517318767269-9ab8938d-148b"][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1516988616276{padding-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #ffffff !important;}"]What is Bifidobacterium Bifidum?Bifidobacteria are a group of bacteria that normally live in the intestines. They can be grown outside the body and then taken by mouth as medicine.Bifidobacteria are commonly used for diarrhea, constipation, an intestinal disorder called irritable bowel syndrome, for preventing the common cold or flu, and lots of other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support many of these uses.How does it work? Bifidobacteria belong to a group of bacteria called lactic acid bacteria. Lactic acid bacteria are found in fermented foods like yogurt and cheese. Bifidobacteria are used in treatment as so-called "probiotics," the opposite of antibiotics. They are considered "friendly" bacteria and are taken to grow and multiply in areas of the body where they normally would occur. The human body counts on its normal bacteria to perform several jobs, including breaking down foods, helping the body take in nutrients, and preventing the take-over of "bad" bacteria. Probiotics such as bifidobacteria are typically used in cases when a disease occurs or might occur due to a kill-off of normal bacteria. For example, treatment with antibiotics can destroy disease-causing bacteria, but also normal bacteria in the GI (gastrointestinal) and urinary tracts. The theory is that taking Bifidobacterium probiotics during antibiotic treatment can prevent or minimize the death of good bacteria and the take-over by bad bacteria.Bifidobacterium Bifidum Benefits:✓ establish initial infant microflora ✓ increase immunity function ✓ fight yeast overgrowths ✓ decrease inflammation ✓ fight E. coli infections ✓ treat acute diarrhea ✓ decrease allergies ✓ reduce ulcers ✓fight Candida[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][/vc_column][/vc_row]

A later study looked at people with Parkinson’s disease. That one revealed that regular intake of milk fermented with Lactobacillus casei Shirota can improve bowel habits of people with the disease.Researchers for a 2014 clinical trial found that L. casei supplements can help alleviate symptoms and improve inflammatory cytokines in women with RA.There is a growing body of research into L. casei and other probiotics. But to date, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) hasn’t approved L. casei or any other probiotic for the treatment of a specific health problem.When you don’t have enough of the good bacteria, adding more L.

They can be grown outside the body and then taken by mouth as medicine.Bifidobacteria are commonly used for diarrhea, constipation, an intestinal disorder called irritable bowel syndrome, for preventing the common cold or flu, and lots of other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support many of these uses.How does it work? Bifidobacteria belong to a group of bacteria called lactic acid bacteria. Lactic acid bacteria are found in fermented foods like yogurt and cheese. Bifidobacteria are used in treatment as so-called "probiotics," the opposite of antibiotics. They are considered "friendly" bacteria and are taken to grow and multiply in areas of the body where they normally would occur. The human body counts on its normal bacteria to perform several jobs, including breaking down foods, helping the body take in nutrients, and preventing the take-over of "bad" bacteria. Probiotics such as bifidobacteria are typically used in cases when a disease occurs or might occur due to a kill-off of normal bacteria. For example, treatment with antibiotics can destroy disease-causing bacteria, but also normal bacteria in the GI (gastrointestinal) and urinary tracts. The theory is that taking Bifidobacterium probiotics during antibiotic treatment can prevent or minimize the death of good bacteria and the take-over by bad bacteria.Bifidobacterium Bifidum Benefits:✓ establish initial infant microflora ✓ increase immunity function ✓ fight yeast overgrowths ✓ decrease inflammation ✓ fight E. coli infections ✓ treat acute diarrhea ✓ decrease allergies ✓ reduce ulcers ✓fight Candida[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section i_type="material" i_icon_material="vc-material vc-material-done" add_icon="true" title="Lactobacillus Bulgaricus" tab_id="1516988675394-a11eebcc-5137"][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1516989776057{padding-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #ffffff !important;}"]What is Lactobacillus Bulgaricus?Lactobacillus d. bulgaricus (L. d. bulgaricus) is a beneficial bacteria found in the digestive tract. Intestinal bacteria is referred to as gut flora or microbes. This strain of bacteria may also be found in foods or supplements. When it’s consumed, it’s referred to as probiotics.The proper balance of gut flora helps to keep your intestinal walls strong and bad bacteria at bay, and can reduce the risk of chronic disease.Probiotics are “good” bacteria that may play an important role in maintaining your health when consumed. The last decade has seen an explosion in the popularity of probiotics. But what does the research say about these bacteria? Read on to find out more.The NIH did note some potential health benefits of L. d. bulgaricus and probiotics. Early-stage research suggests that they may play a role in managing the following health conditions:✓  liver disease ✓  common cold ✓  diarrhea caused by antibiotics ✓  inflammatory bowel disease ✓  atopic dermatitis (eczema) ✓  allergic rhinitis (hay fever) ✓  colic ✓  tooth decay ✓  periodontal disease and other oral health problems ✓  preventing necrotizing enterocolitis[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section i_type="material" i_icon_material="vc-material vc-material-done" add_icon="true" title="Bifidobacterium Longum" tab_id="1516988964800-e66771df-2595"][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1516989948121{padding-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #ffffff !important;}"]What is Bifidobacterium Longum?Bifidobacterium longum is a specific species of microscopic non-pathogenic bacteria found naturally in the gastrointestinal tracts of humans as well as in most other animals.

It is a gram-positive, branched rod-shaped bacterium that produces lactic acid from the fermentation of sugar in the gastrointestinal tract.Bifidobacterium longum provides many health benefits as a naturally-occurring bacterium and as a probiotic. The lactic acid produced by the bacteria increases the acidity of the digestive tract, which helps inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria. Bifidobacterium longum also has been shown to treat constipation, reduce inflammation associated with inflammatory bowel conditions, prevent high cholesterol levels and reduce the development of certain allergies, according to probiotic.org. According to a study in the April 1997 issue of “Carcinogenesis,” Bifidobacterium longum showed anticarcinogenic and antimutagenic properties and may help inhibit the development of colon cancer.

It is used in the industry for the production of cheese and buttermilk. Lately, it was utilized as a genetically modified organism for treating various diseases. It’s the first alive organism used for this purpose. If the bacterium is put into milk, it breaks down the lactose into energy molecules, ATP, with the help of various enzymes. The ATP’s byproduct is called lactic acid. This one is useful for coagulating the milk and then forming the curds that produce whey and cheese. Moreover, Lactococcus lactis can be utilized for preparing fermented foods like sausages, breads, wine, beer and pickled vegetables. Many specialists stated that understanding and using the genetic and physiology functions of this bacterium would be extremely valuable for the pharmaceutical and food industries. The bacterium could be used to produce many beneficial drugs as well.Lactobacillus Lactis Benefits:Healthy digestion depends on the modulation and maintenance of the microflora contained in the gut. When an imbalance occurs, it is important and sometimes even vital to restore and replenish the probiotic organisms quickly.This will occur naturally, in a healthy individual, over a period of 2-6 months, but many doctors prefer to supplement with probiotic bacteria to re-establish a healthy balance more quickly.Many events can be responsible for an imbalance in the gut flora which allows pathogenic bacteria to gain a foothold:✓ Treatment with antibiotics ✓ Infection with a foodborne pathogen like E. coli or Salmonella ✓ Acute stress ✓ Disease processes within the body[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][/vc_column][/vc_row]

This substance can be found in a variety amount of foods such as vegetables, fruits, and herbs. Inulin is in the class of compounds known as fructans and is a naturally occurring oligosaccharide, meaning it has several simple sugars linked together.Since inulin is not absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract, it is considered to be a fibre. Inulin has a sweeter taste to it, so some people may definitely use this as a sweetener for a variety of things.Since it is a fibre and is not digested in the gastrointestinal tract, it goes down to the large intestine where your bacteria uses it to prosper, making it considered to be prebiotic.Examples of foods that contain inulin:✓ Sweet potatoes ✓ Asparagus ✓ Wheat ✓ Onions ✓ Bananas ✓ GarlicInulin Fiber Uses Studies have linked the consumption of inulin-type prebiotics to many other health benefits as well, including:✓ better infant nutrition, growth and development ✓ gastrointestinal health ✓ colon cancer prevention ✓ better blood sugar control ✓ healthier cholesterol levels and improved lipid metabolism ✓ improved bone mineralization ✓ protection from fatty liver disease ✓ protection from obesity ✓ better immunityGood bacteria basically live off of fibers within the diet, which is why high-fiber foods like fruit, leafy greens and beans/legumes are said to be good for gut health.Is There a Dietary Requirement for Inulin?While there isn’t a requirement or recommended amount of inulin you should aim for every day, consuming it regularly can contribute to your daily fiber intake. People around the world are believed to consume inulin every single day in the form of natural plant foods and some packaged products. Archaeological evidence from the Chihuahuan Desert near New Mexico suggests that ancient populations living in this region who ate plant-based diets probably consumed about 135 grams of prebiotic inulin-type fructans every single day!Are There Any Inulin Side Effects or Interactions?Inulin is non-allergic and safe for most people to consume considering it’s completely natural and present in many foods. Studies have shown that chicory is rarely allergenic, and when foods containing inulin cause reactions, it’s usually due to other compounding ingredients like peanuts, milk, soy, shellfish and wheat.That being said, some people don’t react very well to eating high amounts of certain types of fibers or carbohydrates. Inulin is considered a FODMAP, a class of carbohydrates that are rapidly fermented in the colon and can produce gas and digestive issues for some people.For people with sensitives to FODMAPs (like those with irritable bowel syndrome on an IBS diet or who have inflammatory bowel disorders), drawing water into the colon in large quantities can lead to worsened symptoms, like cramps, gas and bloated stomach. (12) It’s a good idea to add inulin or other concentrated fibers to your diet slowly to test their effects and also to drink plenty of water to help with lubrication.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section i_type="material" i_icon_material="vc-material vc-material-done" add_icon="true" title="Soy Fibre" tab_id="1516985426016-af2c6c4b-0352"][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1516987007616{padding-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #ffffff !important;}"]Soy Fiber Is a Good Source of Prebiotics.

There have been many promising studies involving L. casei.Researchers in a 2007 trial studied a probiotic drink containing L. casei, L. bulgaricus, and S. thermophiles. They concluded that it may reduce the incidence of antibiotic-associated diarrhea and C. difficile-associated diarrhea. No adverse events were reported.A 2003 study showed that a probiotic drink containing Lactobacillus casei Shirota was a beneficial adjunctive therapy for people with chronic constipation. A later study looked at people with Parkinson’s disease. That one revealed that regular intake of milk fermented with Lactobacillus casei Shirota can improve bowel habits of people with the disease.Researchers for a 2014 clinical trial found that L. casei supplements can help alleviate symptoms and improve inflammatory cytokines in women with RA.There is a growing body of research into L. casei and other probiotics. But to date, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) hasn’t approved L. casei or any other probiotic for the treatment of a specific health problem.When you don’t have enough of the good bacteria, adding more L. Casei to your diet can help regulate your digestive system.Probiotic supplements containing L. Casei are used to prevent or treat diarrhea. This includes infectious diarrhea, traveler’s diarrhea, and antibiotic-associated diarrhea.It may also have some effect on other digestive problems, including:✓ colic ✓ constipation ✓ Crohn’s disease ✓ inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) ✓ irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) ✓ lactose intolerance ✓ ulcerative colitisL. casei may also be useful for:✓ acne, hives, and fever blisters ✓ allergies, eczema, and dermatitis ✓ cold, flu, and respiratory infection ✓ ear infection (otitis media) ✓ oral health problems, such as plaque, gingivitis, and canker sores ✓ Helicobacter pylori infection, which causes stomach ulcers ✓ Lyme disease ✓ necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), a serious intestinal disease common in premature infants ✓ rheumatoid arthritis (RA) ✓ urinary tract and vaginal infections[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section i_type="material" i_icon_material="vc-material vc-material-done" add_icon="true" title="Lactobacillus Rhamnosus" tab_id="1517317236106-f2629745-23c5"][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1517317386863{padding-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #ffffff !important;}"]What is Lactobacillus Rhamnosus?L. rhamnosus is great for the gastrointestinal system, but also for balancing our immune system.

Lactobacillus rhamnosus probiotic supplements are also used to treat antibiotic-associated diarrhea. Studies have also shown L. rhamnosus reduces anxiety and depression associated behaviors.Like all probiotic bacteria, L. rhamnosus works by inhibiting the growth of harmful bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract. This supplement helps to break down foods that we eat and is important for maintaining a low pH acidic environment in the gut.The benefits of Lactobacillus rhamnosus also include protection against rotaviral diarrhea, improved skin health, relief from IBS, and prevention of Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) and other infections in the female urogenital tract.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section i_type="material" i_icon_material="vc-material vc-material-done" add_icon="true" title="Lactobacillus Acidophilus" tab_id="1516985558608-d079f5e6-e938"][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1516987248324{padding-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #ffffff !important;}"]What is Lactobacillus Acidophilus?Lactobacillus acidophilus is a bacteria that exists naturally in the body, primarily in the intestines and the vagina. Lactobacillus acidophilus has been used as a probiotic, or "friendly bacteria."Lactobacillus acidophilus has been used in alternative medicine as a likely effective aid in treating diarrhea in children with rotavirus.Lactobacillus acidophilus has been used in alternative medicine as a possibly effective aid (in children or adults) in preventing diarrhea caused by antibiotics, travel, chemotherapy, or hospitalization. Lactobacillus acidophilus is also possibly effective in treating irritable bowel syndrome, bacterial vaginal infection, colic in babies, lung infections in children, skin problems in children who are allergic to milk, and other conditions.Lactobacillus acidophilus has also been used to treat lactose intolerance, Crohn's disease, overgrowth of bacteria in the intestines, or vaginal yeast infections caused by antibiotics. However, research has shown that lactobacillus acidophilus may not be effective in treating these conditions.Other uses not proven with research have included treating indigestion, urinary tract infections, intestinal problems in premature babies, high cholesterol, lyme disease, cold sores, acne, cancer, the common cold, and other conditions.It is not certain whether lactobacillus acidophilus is effective in treating any medical condition. Medicinal use of this product has not been approved by the FDA. Lactobacillus acidophilus should not be used in place of medication prescribed for you by your doctor.Lactobacillus acidophilus is often sold as an herbal supplement. There are no regulated manufacturing standards in place for many herbal compounds and some marketed supplements have been found to be contaminated with toxic metals or other drugs.

Several L. plantarum strains have been shown to produce different antimicrobial compounds such as organic acids, hydrogen peroxide, diacetyl, and also bacteriocins and antimicrobial peptides, both denoted by a variable spectrum of action. In recent decades, the selection of microbial molecules and/or bacterial strains able to produce antagonistic molecules to be used as antimicrobials and preservatives has been attracting scientific interest, in order to eliminate or reduce chemical additives, because of the growing attention of consumers for healthy and natural food products.Lactobacillus Plantarum Improves?✓ Digestive health – Improves symptoms of digestive complains such as bloating, gas, cramping, diarrhea and constipation. ✓ Immune Function – Both resistance against colds and flu’s and cancer development ✓  Lowers Inflammation – Key for reducing auto-immunity ✓  Nutrient Absorption – Improves nutrient extraction from food ✓  Brain Development – Key for children developing healthy brains and preventing ADHD, Autism and other sensory disorders ✓  Mental Health and Mood – Reduces brain inflammation that is a factor in psychological issues such as depression, bipolar and schitzophrenia.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section i_type="material" i_icon_material="vc-material vc-material-done" add_icon="true" title=" Bifidobacterium Breve" tab_id="1516988196073-74da0541-938c"][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1517319201761{padding-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #ffffff !important;}"]What is Bifidobacterium Breve?Bifidobacterium breve (B. Breve) is one of the most helpful probiotic bacteria in the humb. breve probiotic body. Amongst probiotic bacteria, it is unique in its ability to compete with other harmful bacteria due to the large variety of molecules that it can digest. It makes up the majority of bacteria in the colons of babies that are breastfed, which is one of many reasons that breastfed babies tend to have healthier immune systems than non-breast fed babies. Some of the primary functions of B. breve in the digestive tract are to ferment sugars, produce lactic acid, and produce acetic acid, but B. breve serves a number of other important digestive and regulatory functions.Bifidobacterium Breve Benefits:Bifidobacterium Breve is essential for a proper colon functioning.

It is added to a variety of foods or dietary supplements as a probiotic due to its many health benefits. It is a gram-positive, branched rod-shaped bacterium that produces lactic acid from the fermentation of sugar in the gastrointestinal tract.Bifidobacterium longum provides many health benefits as a naturally-occurring bacterium and as a probiotic. The lactic acid produced by the bacteria increases the acidity of the digestive tract, which helps inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria. Bifidobacterium longum also has been shown to treat constipation, reduce inflammation associated with inflammatory bowel conditions, prevent high cholesterol levels and reduce the development of certain allergies, according to probiotic.org. According to a study in the April 1997 issue of “Carcinogenesis,” Bifidobacterium longum showed anticarcinogenic and antimutagenic properties and may help inhibit the development of colon cancer. Probiotic supplements are also beneficial in repopulating Bifidobacterium longum colonies in the digestive tract that have been destroyed by antibiotic use.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section i_type="material" i_icon_material="vc-material vc-material-done" add_icon="true" title=" Bifidobacterium Bifidum" tab_id="1517318767269-9ab8938d-148b"][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1516988616276{padding-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #ffffff !important;}"]What is Bifidobacterium Bifidum?Bifidobacteria are a group of bacteria that normally live in the intestines. They can be grown outside the body and then taken by mouth as medicine.Bifidobacteria are commonly used for diarrhea, constipation, an intestinal disorder called irritable bowel syndrome, for preventing the common cold or flu, and lots of other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support many of these uses.How does it work? Bifidobacteria belong to a group of bacteria called lactic acid bacteria. Lactic acid bacteria are found in fermented foods like yogurt and cheese. Bifidobacteria are used in treatment as so-called "probiotics," the opposite of antibiotics. They are considered "friendly" bacteria and are taken to grow and multiply in areas of the body where they normally would occur. The human body counts on its normal bacteria to perform several jobs, including breaking down foods, helping the body take in nutrients, and preventing the take-over of "bad" bacteria. Probiotics such as bifidobacteria are typically used in cases when a disease occurs or might occur due to a kill-off of normal bacteria. For example, treatment with antibiotics can destroy disease-causing bacteria, but also normal bacteria in the GI (gastrointestinal) and urinary tracts. The theory is that taking Bifidobacterium probiotics during antibiotic treatment can prevent or minimize the death of good bacteria and the take-over by bad bacteria.Bifidobacterium Bifidum Benefits:✓ establish initial infant microflora ✓ increase immunity function ✓ fight yeast overgrowths ✓ decrease inflammation ✓ fight E. coli infections ✓ treat acute diarrhea ✓ decrease allergies ✓ reduce ulcers ✓fight Candida[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section i_type="material" i_icon_material="vc-material vc-material-done" add_icon="true" title="Streptococcus Thermophilus" tab_id="1539611392742-5668baee-7715"][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1539611578619{padding-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #ffffff !important;}"]What is Streptococcus thermophilus?Streptococcus thermophilus is a thermophilic lactic acid bacterium traditionally and widely used as a starter in manufacturing dairy products such as cheese and yogurt.At birth, S. thermophilus is among the first colonizers of the GI tract and may impact the maturation and homeostasis of the intestinal epithelium after birth.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title="Saccharomyces boulardii" tab_id="1543251389612-2904a595-ba99"][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][/vc_column][/vc_row]

This substance can be found in a variety amount of foods such as vegetables, fruits, and herbs. Inulin is in the class of compounds known as fructans and is a naturally occurring oligosaccharide, meaning it has several simple sugars linked together.Since inulin is not absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract, it is considered to be a fibre. Inulin has a sweeter taste to it, so some people may definitely use this as a sweetener for a variety of things.Since it is a fibre and is not digested in the gastrointestinal tract, it goes down to the large intestine where your bacteria uses it to prosper, making it considered to be prebiotic.Examples of foods that contain inulin:✓ Sweet potatoes ✓ Asparagus ✓ Wheat ✓ Onions ✓ Bananas ✓ GarlicInulin Fiber Uses Studies have linked the consumption of inulin-type prebiotics to many other health benefits as well, including:✓ better infant nutrition, growth and development ✓ gastrointestinal health ✓ colon cancer prevention ✓ better blood sugar control ✓ healthier cholesterol levels and improved lipid metabolism ✓ improved bone mineralization ✓ protection from fatty liver disease ✓ protection from obesity ✓ better immunityGood bacteria basically live off of fibers within the diet, which is why high-fiber foods like fruit, leafy greens and beans/legumes are said to be good for gut health.Is There a Dietary Requirement for Inulin?While there isn’t a requirement or recommended amount of inulin you should aim for every day, consuming it regularly can contribute to your daily fiber intake. People around the world are believed to consume inulin every single day in the form of natural plant foods and some packaged products. Archaeological evidence from the Chihuahuan Desert near New Mexico suggests that ancient populations living in this region who ate plant-based diets probably consumed about 135 grams of prebiotic inulin-type fructans every single day!Are There Any Inulin Side Effects or Interactions?Inulin is non-allergic and safe for most people to consume considering it’s completely natural and present in many foods. Studies have shown that chicory is rarely allergenic, and when foods containing inulin cause reactions, it’s usually due to other compounding ingredients like peanuts, milk, soy, shellfish and wheat.That being said, some people don’t react very well to eating high amounts of certain types of fibers or carbohydrates. Inulin is considered a FODMAP, a class of carbohydrates that are rapidly fermented in the colon and can produce gas and digestive issues for some people.For people with sensitives to FODMAPs (like those with irritable bowel syndrome on an IBS diet or who have inflammatory bowel disorders), drawing water into the colon in large quantities can lead to worsened symptoms, like cramps, gas and bloated stomach. (12) It’s a good idea to add inulin or other concentrated fibers to your diet slowly to test their effects and also to drink plenty of water to help with lubrication.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section i_type="material" i_icon_material="vc-material vc-material-done" add_icon="true" title="Soy Fibre" tab_id="1516985426016-af2c6c4b-0352"][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1516987007616{padding-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #ffffff !important;}"]Soy Fiber Is a Good Source of Prebiotics.

Lactobacillus acidophilus has been used as a probiotic, or "friendly bacteria."Lactobacillus acidophilus has been used in alternative medicine as a likely effective aid in treating diarrhea in children with rotavirus.Lactobacillus acidophilus has been used in alternative medicine as a possibly effective aid (in children or adults) in preventing diarrhea caused by antibiotics, travel, chemotherapy, or hospitalization. Lactobacillus acidophilus is also possibly effective in treating irritable bowel syndrome, bacterial vaginal infection, colic in babies, lung infections in children, skin problems in children who are allergic to milk, and other conditions.Lactobacillus acidophilus has also been used to treat lactose intolerance, Crohn's disease, overgrowth of bacteria in the intestines, or vaginal yeast infections caused by antibiotics. However, research has shown that lactobacillus acidophilus may not be effective in treating these conditions.Other uses not proven with research have included treating indigestion, urinary tract infections, intestinal problems in premature babies, high cholesterol, lyme disease, cold sores, acne, cancer, the common cold, and other conditions.It is not certain whether lactobacillus acidophilus is effective in treating any medical condition. Medicinal use of this product has not been approved by the FDA. Lactobacillus acidophilus should not be used in place of medication prescribed for you by your doctor.Lactobacillus acidophilus is often sold as an herbal supplement. There are no regulated manufacturing standards in place for many herbal compounds and some marketed supplements have been found to be contaminated with toxic metals or other drugs.

There have been many promising studies involving L. casei.Researchers in a 2007 trial studied a probiotic drink containing L. casei, L. bulgaricus, and S. thermophiles. They concluded that it may reduce the incidence of antibiotic-associated diarrhea and C. difficile-associated diarrhea. No adverse events were reported.A 2003 study showed that a probiotic drink containing Lactobacillus casei Shirota was a beneficial adjunctive therapy for people with chronic constipation. A later study looked at people with Parkinson’s disease. That one revealed that regular intake of milk fermented with Lactobacillus casei Shirota can improve bowel habits of people with the disease.Researchers for a 2014 clinical trial found that L. casei supplements can help alleviate symptoms and improve inflammatory cytokines in women with RA.There is a growing body of research into L. casei and other probiotics. But to date, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) hasn’t approved L. casei or any other probiotic for the treatment of a specific health problem.When you don’t have enough of the good bacteria, adding more L. Casei to your diet can help regulate your digestive system.Probiotic supplements containing L. Casei are used to prevent or treat diarrhea. This includes infectious diarrhea, traveler’s diarrhea, and antibiotic-associated diarrhea.It may also have some effect on other digestive problems, including:✓ colic ✓ constipation ✓ Crohn’s disease ✓ inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) ✓ irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) ✓ lactose intolerance ✓ ulcerative colitisL. casei may also be useful for:✓ acne, hives, and fever blisters ✓ allergies, eczema, and dermatitis ✓ cold, flu, and respiratory infection ✓ ear infection (otitis media) ✓ oral health problems, such as plaque, gingivitis, and canker sores ✓ Helicobacter pylori infection, which causes stomach ulcers ✓ Lyme disease ✓ necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), a serious intestinal disease common in premature infants ✓ rheumatoid arthritis (RA) ✓ urinary tract and vaginal infections[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section i_type="material" i_icon_material="vc-material vc-material-done" add_icon="true" title=" Streptococcus Thermophilus" tab_id="1516987823069-55415112-a2d1"][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1516988077558{padding-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #ffffff !important;}"]What is Streptococcus Thermophilus?Streptococcus thermophilus is a thermophilic lactic acid bacterium traditionally and widely used as a starter in manufacturing dairy products such as cheese and yogurt.At birth, S. thermophilus is among the first colonizers of the GI tract and may impact the maturation and homeostasis of the intestinal epithelium after birth.Researched Benefits of S. thermophilus:✓ improve digestion ✓ reduce antibiotic associated diarrhea ✓ decrease ulcerative colitis symptoms ✓ decrease leaky gut symptoms ✓ improve lactose digestion ✓ decrease IBS symptoms ✓ decrease acute diarrhea ✓ enhance immunity ✓ prevent & fight upper respiratory infections (eg. pneumonia) ✓ prevent ulcers caused by H. pylori ✓ decrease AIDS symptoms ✓ fight Clostridium difficile ✓ increase immunity ✓ additional health benefits ✓ improve non-breast-fed infant probiotic flora ✓ reduce symptoms of atopic dermatitis ✓ decrease chance of kidney stones ✓ increase HDL (good cholesterol) ✓ increase anti-tumor activity ✓ decrease baby colic[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section i_type="material" i_icon_material="vc-material vc-material-done" add_icon="true" title=" Bifidobacterium Bifidum" tab_id="1516988196073-74da0541-938c"][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1516988616276{padding-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #ffffff !important;}"]What is Bifidobacterium Bifidum?Bifidobacteria are a group of bacteria that normally live in the intestines. They can be grown outside the body and then taken by mouth as medicine.Bifidobacteria are commonly used for diarrhea, constipation, an intestinal disorder called irritable bowel syndrome, for preventing the common cold or flu, and lots of other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support many of these uses.How does it work? Bifidobacteria belong to a group of bacteria called lactic acid bacteria. Lactic acid bacteria are found in fermented foods like yogurt and cheese. Bifidobacteria are used in treatment as so-called "probiotics," the opposite of antibiotics. They are considered "friendly" bacteria and are taken to grow and multiply in areas of the body where they normally would occur. The human body counts on its normal bacteria to perform several jobs, including breaking down foods, helping the body take in nutrients, and preventing the take-over of "bad" bacteria. Probiotics such as bifidobacteria are typically used in cases when a disease occurs or might occur due to a kill-off of normal bacteria. For example, treatment with antibiotics can destroy disease-causing bacteria, but also normal bacteria in the GI (gastrointestinal) and urinary tracts. The theory is that taking Bifidobacterium probiotics during antibiotic treatment can prevent or minimize the death of good bacteria and the take-over by bad bacteria.Bifidobacterium Bifidum Benefits:✓ establish initial infant microflora ✓ increase immunity function ✓ fight yeast overgrowths ✓ decrease inflammation ✓ fight E. coli infections ✓ treat acute diarrhea ✓ decrease allergies ✓ reduce ulcers ✓fight Candida[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section i_type="material" i_icon_material="vc-material vc-material-done" add_icon="true" title="Lactobacillus Bulgaricus" tab_id="1516988675394-a11eebcc-5137"][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1516989776057{padding-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #ffffff !important;}"]What is Lactobacillus Bulgaricus?Lactobacillus d. bulgaricus (L. d. bulgaricus) is a beneficial bacteria found in the digestive tract. Intestinal bacteria is referred to as gut flora or microbes. This strain of bacteria may also be found in foods or supplements. When it’s consumed, it’s referred to as probiotics.The proper balance of gut flora helps to keep your intestinal walls strong and bad bacteria at bay, and can reduce the risk of chronic disease.Probiotics are “good” bacteria that may play an important role in maintaining your health when consumed. The last decade has seen an explosion in the popularity of probiotics. But what does the research say about these bacteria? Read on to find out more.The NIH did note some potential health benefits of L. d. bulgaricus and probiotics. Early-stage research suggests that they may play a role in managing the following health conditions:✓  liver disease ✓  common cold ✓  diarrhea caused by antibiotics ✓  inflammatory bowel disease ✓  atopic dermatitis (eczema) ✓  allergic rhinitis (hay fever) ✓  colic ✓  tooth decay ✓  periodontal disease and other oral health problems ✓  preventing necrotizing enterocolitis[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section i_type="material" i_icon_material="vc-material vc-material-done" add_icon="true" title="Bifidobacterium Longum" tab_id="1516988964800-e66771df-2595"][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1516989948121{padding-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #ffffff !important;}"]What is Bifidobacterium Longum?Bifidobacterium longum is a specific species of microscopic non-pathogenic bacteria found naturally in the gastrointestinal tracts of humans as well as in most other animals. It is added to a variety of foods or dietary supplements as a probiotic due to its many health benefits. It is a gram-positive, branched rod-shaped bacterium that produces lactic acid from the fermentation of sugar in the gastrointestinal tract.Bifidobacterium longum provides many health benefits as a naturally-occurring bacterium and as a probiotic. The lactic acid produced by the bacteria increases the acidity of the digestive tract, which helps inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria. Bifidobacterium longum also has been shown to treat constipation, reduce inflammation associated with inflammatory bowel conditions, prevent high cholesterol levels and reduce the development of certain allergies, according to probiotic.org. According to a study in the April 1997 issue of “Carcinogenesis,” Bifidobacterium longum showed anticarcinogenic and antimutagenic properties and may help inhibit the development of colon cancer. Probiotic supplements are also beneficial in repopulating Bifidobacterium longum colonies in the digestive tract that have been destroyed by antibiotic use.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section i_type="material" i_icon_material="vc-material vc-material-done" add_icon="true" title="Lactobacillus Lactis" tab_id="1516989783043-73900e76-c377"][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1516989674147{padding-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #ffffff !important;}"]What is Lactobacillus Lactis?Lactococcus lactis is known as a bacterium that’s Gram-positive. It is used in the industry for the production of cheese and buttermilk. Lately, it was utilized as a genetically modified organism for treating various diseases. It’s the first alive organism used for this purpose. If the bacterium is put into milk, it breaks down the lactose into energy molecules, ATP, with the help of various enzymes. The ATP’s byproduct is called lactic acid. This one is useful for coagulating the milk and then forming the curds that produce whey and cheese. Moreover, Lactococcus lactis can be utilized for preparing fermented foods like sausages, breads, wine, beer and pickled vegetables. Many specialists stated that understanding and using the genetic and physiology functions of this bacterium would be extremely valuable for the pharmaceutical and food industries. The bacterium could be used to produce many beneficial drugs as well.Lactobacillus Lactis Benefits:Healthy digestion depends on the modulation and maintenance of the microflora contained in the gut. When an imbalance occurs, it is important and sometimes even vital to restore and replenish the probiotic organisms quickly.This will occur naturally, in a healthy individual, over a period of 2-6 months, but many doctors prefer to supplement with probiotic bacteria to re-establish a healthy balance more quickly.Many events can be responsible for an imbalance in the gut flora which allows pathogenic bacteria to gain a foothold:✓ Treatment with antibiotics ✓ Infection with a foodborne pathogen like E. coli or Salmonella ✓ Acute stress ✓ Disease processes within the body[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][/vc_column][/vc_row]
