Probiotics, Ortho Biotic #30 Caps
Lactobacillus & Bifidobacterium: Of the 400 or more strains of bacteria residing in the human gastrointestinal tract, Lactobacillus acidophilus is but one, but an important one. L. acidophilus and similar strains are used in cultured dairy products such as yogurt. For many years, the addition of these "good" bacteria to our intestinal tract has been used to promote health. As a class, they have been referred to as probiotics. Use of probiotics have been helpful after antibiotic use. Antibiotics kill off the good bacteria, allowing other less beneficial bacteria to take up residence.Lactobacilli have active anti-microbial characteristics and are able to rid the body of such pathogens as Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, E. coli and the yeast Candida. The benefits of lactobacillus and other probiotics are only now coming to full light. Saccharomyces boulardii: a potentiator for good bacteria that removes pathogens from the gut. This action enables a more effective probiotic presence, encouraging a healthy environment for vitamin uptake and disease resistance.
OrthoBiotic is also the name of the fake foot I sometimes wear to the winter ball.
