Probiotics are the living beneficial bacteria located in the large and small intestines as well as the colon and other areas of the body. Once inside the body, the probiotics transfer into dozens of health benefits when they exist in or on a host such as a human being. Up to this date, no one has ever been able to successfully indentify every single bacterium on earth, so there are still many strains which have not been identified by science. Even so, the science community estimates that there are between 10 million and 1 billion different bacterial species in existence.
Whether you’re following a Candida diet, or if you’re just attempting to increase your immunity and repair your adrenal glands, you will need to be taking a probiotic capsule. This is done in order to obtain the necessary beneficial flora which will help to rebuild your adrenals as well as your immune system.
If you have a Candida overgrowth, and you intend to take probiotics for that reason (which is what you should do), before you start the diet or probiotics, you should be using a supplement called Molybdenum Amino Acid Chelate for three days before starting the detox, diet, supplement protocol or probiotics; you should take three pills of molybdenum a day, and each pill should contain 250 mcg each.
If you order probiotics over the Internet, and the information informs you that this is the type of probiotic which should be packed in ice, this will sometime add to the cost of the product. However, if this information is stated in the probiotic info, then if you can, be sure to request that your order is shipped in an optional ice pack for protection, and when you receive them, they should be kept in a refrigerator for storage. Some prebiotics are freeze dried, which does not harm the bacteria, but if they are freeze dried, they will not need to be packed in ice for shipment.
When you first begin taking a probiotic, whether you’re following a Candida treatment or not, you do not want to start with the strongest probiotic available for various and rather obvious reasons. For one reason, a high strain high billion-count can literally shock your system causing various indigestion problems. When you start your probiotic, there are several satisfactory brands available, and one of the most helpful during the early stage of a health building or a Candida diet is Probacto Probiotics.
The Probiotic probiotics could be taken for at least 4 to 6 weeks in the beginning of your Candida treatment at which time it would be correct to move on to another type of probiotic containing possibly more strains as well as a higher billion count.
The Beneficial Bacteria in Probacto Probiotics
The bacteria strains of Probacto probiotics and their major functions are shown below:
- Bacillus subtilis is a bacterium that is so potent that it’s actually capable of “eating” nearly all harmful microorganisms known to the human body. It was discovered in 1941 by the German medical corps that, when the soldiers came down with dysentery caused by the bad water and food, B. subtilis was the only ‘medicine’ which could bring the dysentery to an abrupt halt, therefore saving hundreds of lives.
- Lactobacillus helvecticus is a lactic acid producing bacteria which means that’s especially helpful during yeast infections as well as a fungal yeast overgrowth. Some of the more prominent benefits of L. helvecticus are; normalizing the colonization of the beneficial flora in the intestines, especially in infants who are not breast feeding; it improves both the length of sleep as well as the quality of your sleep; it can add to the levels of the blood serum calcium and reduce high blood pressure, and it reduces the loss of Parathyroid Hormone which otherwise would cause bone loss.
- Saccharomyces boulardii is a form of benign, beneficial yeast which is capable of destroying the fungal yeast such as Candida albicans. Health conscious people may recognize S. boulardii as its alias, Brewer’s yeast. It’s known for its ability to restore the beneficial bacteria, especially in the small intestine. It also contains antimicrobial (destroys micro-organisms), antitoxin (counteracts specific toxins), trophic (belonging to a food chain), and anti-inflammatory (reduces inflammation) properties.
- Lactobacillus acidophilus: Acidophilus is a Latin word which translates into “Latin meaning acid loving milk-bacterium.” So as you can see, it’s considered a lactic acid producing bacteria. In the human body it produces vitamin K and lactase which is an enzyme necessary for the complete digestion of milk; the lack of which will cause the dreaded problem of lactose intolerance. Forms of acidophilus are the bacteria which are responsible for warding off unwanted fungal yeast such as Candida albicans.
- Lactobacillus rhamnosus is one of the most researched bacteria strains; so of course, a lot of research is available. The research is probably due to its numerous health benefits. L. rhamnosus is another of the beneficial bacteria which is capable of releasing a substance which will create a toxic environment for many pathogens, including harmful bacteria and yeasts. A research study at Baylor College of Medicine demonstrated that, when enough lactobacillus rhamnosus is available, it’s possible for this bacterium to reduce the number of febrile urinary tract infections that are caused by the opportunistic bacteria that often inhabit the urine.
- Lactobacillus plantarum is the bacteria which are responsible for the healthy foods such as sauerkraut and kimchi and is one of the most useful bacteria for the purpose of improving digestive issues. But the most fortunate aspect about L. plantarum is it’s immunity against most antifungals. A bacterium that can claim this is nothing less than priceless when it comes to your immune system and digestion. If your intestines contain a healthy supply of L. plantarum, then you are armed with a great defense system against liver damage as well as a substance which can aid in reducing inflammation in the body. In addition to being found in fermented vegetables, it’s also found in dairy products and meat, so kefir should have a hefty supply of these bacteria. Research studies tell us that chances are that, if you are eating a ‘typical’ American diet, you’re probably among the 75% of the American population whose intestines are not colonized with the Lactobacillus plantarum bacteria. You didn’t misread that; the estimated number of people whose intestines are colonized with L. plantarum is just 25% of the entire American population.
- Lactococcus lactis is found in plants, mainly grasses but grows in milk and is responsible for manufacturing many cheeses such as Cheddar, Colby, Brie, cottage as well as vital dairy to treating Candida such as Kefir. L. lactis has a safety record that is established in the food industry. To see more about L. Lactis and it’s benefits for health, please visit discoverymedicine.com. Probacto contains Lactococcus lactis, but it is 100% dairy free, as well as soy, wheat, shellfish and treenuts. It is also vegan friendly.
- Bifidobacterium bifidum is one of many bacteria strains which are used in the prevention of pathogenic organisms. B. bifidum is also one of the bacteria responsible for the synthesis of various vitamins such as the B vitamin group and vitamin K. This bacterium is known for its ability to discourage the production of histamine in the body which of course is the agent responsible for setting off allergic reactions. A study reported in The Lancet medical journal explained that a research study was performed on a number of infants who were admitted into various hospitals with infant diarrhea. During the study, the babies were given a supplement containing the bacteria Bifidobacterium bifidum, and after compiling the results of this study, the following statement was released; “The supplementation of infant formula with Bifidobacterium bifidum reduces the incidence of acute diarrhea and rotavirus shedding in infants.” Rotavirus is the virus responsible for the inflammation of the stomach and intestines. From this information you can understand why Bifidobacterium bifidum> is also used for IBS (Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome) as well as various other gastrointestinal disorders.
In addition to the beneficial bacteria which Probacto probiotics contain, it also contains Isomalto-Oligosaccharide (IMO) which is a mixture of short-chain carbohydrates referred to as prebiotics. Prebiotics are any type of food that can sustain the life and allow reproduction of the beneficial bacteria which you are attempting to replenish in your intestines, and which in turn will strengthen your immune system.
IMO is officially described as a substance which produces the growth or production of cells through the multiplication of separate parts therefore inducing an increase in the population of the particular cells. In this case of course, we’re talking about the increase in the population of the beneficial bacteria in the intestines which are so important to your health in general, but especially important to bringing a yeast or a Candida overgrowth under control by changing the entire environment of your intestines.
Digestive Yeast Cleanse
The complete anti-fungal probiotic wouldn’t be complete without a digestive yeast cleanse built in. It’s made to digest the yeast at a cellular level causing very low die-off reactions. Probacto has a complete digestive yeast cleanse built in.
- Cellulase – Is made to eat the plant component in the biofilm and yeast cell walls.
- Glucoamylase – Eats the plant polysaccharide layers
- Hemicellulase – Is also made to have the same properties as cellulase in that it eats the bchiten/cellulose layer of the cell wall.
- Amylase – Eat the plant polysaccharide layers
- Protease – Eats the nucleus
- Serrapeptase – Eats the fibrin, old scar tissue, and goes in your blood to clean it.
Both natural and commercial probiotics are one of the most important supplements you can take for your health; and this is true whether you’re fighting a Candida overgrowth or just giving your immune system a boost. Reestablishing your intestinal flora is the piece of the health puzzle which is usually missing, even by professionals in the field of medicine.
