What are Probiotics and why do I need them?
Our stomach and intestines contain billions of good and potentially harmful micro organisms. Probiotics are the good bacteria that line our digestive tract and support the ability to absorb nutrients and fight infection. There are actually 10 times more probiotics in our gut than cells in the entire body, and are an integral
part of our immune system, as it is estimated 80 percent of our entire immune
system is located in the digestive tract!
Probiotics are important in synthesizing certain vitamins and short-chain fatty acids to support a healthy intestinal lining and bolster immunity. Our digestive systems is also the second largest part of our neurological system, called the enteric nervous system. This is why our gastrointestinal tract is called our second brain!
Many people with health issues, such as thyroid imbalances, chronic fatigue, joint pain, psoriasis, autism and many other conditions don’t realize that these illnesses originate in the gut.
Healthy people usually have a ratio of approximately 85% good to 15% potentially harmful organisms in the intestinal tract. Daily exposure to environmental toxins such as chlorinated water, meat, dairy and antibiotics change the optimal microbial balance essential for good health.

These friendly bacteria are blended in a base of Chamomile flowers, Orange blossoms, Slippery Elm Bark and Jerusalem Artichoke, functioning like enteric coating to assist the probiotics in passing through the through the stomach intact to the middle GI tract for increased absorption of nutrients and improved elimination of toxic compounds.
