Detailed Information


Bacteriology 
A good balance of beneficial microflora has been known to be associated with health benefits. LactobacilliBifidobacteria and beneficial E. coli bacteria are important to the functional health of the gut.

Benefits include-

  • Inhibition of microbial pathogens,
  • Prevention and treatment of antibiotic-associated diarrhoea
  • Reduction of lactose intolerance symptoms
  • Reduction in serum cholesterol levels
  • Enhancement of the immune system
  • Inhibition of the proliferation of Candida albicans.

In a healthy balanced state of intestinal flora, the beneficial bacteria make up a significant proportion of the total microflora. However, in many individuals we see an imbalance of beneficial bacteria and an overgrowth of non-beneficial or even pathogenic microorganisms—dysbiosis. This can be due to a variety of factors including:

•  Daily exposure to chemicals in our drinking water that are toxic to friendly bacteria
•  The use of antibiotics
•  Chronic consumption of highly processed foods (low in fiber, high in sugar)
•  High stress levels


People may have health issues such with chronic symptoms such as irritable bowel syndrome, autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, fatigue, chronic headaches and allergies to a variety of foods.
