Probiotics and Your Health
Unfortunately, most people who are now taking probiotics are wasting their money – and still suffer from bloating, gas, indigestion, and other digestive problems.
Most probiotic supplements on the market are simply worthless. In fact, an independent laboratory recently tested many of the most popular brands and found that nearly a third of them flunked. Some products contained less than 1% of the amount of live bacteria claimed. What’s worse, a quarter of the products contained only one-ten thousandth the amount claimed. Worthless!
Every probiotic supplement claims to have a high number of organisms. But, and this is a big but, these organisms are counted at the time of manufacture, not at the time they reach your grocer’s shelf.
By the time you buy them, they’ve often been exposed to light and heat, which kill off and drastically reduce the number of the beneficial bacteria.
In fact, Consumer Reports tested 27 different probiotic products and found that one in four supplements contained fewer bacteria than the amount claimed at the time of manufacture.
And because these organisms can be weakened or killed by the acids in your stomach they need to be developed to withstand the acid environment. If not they are destroyed in your stomach and they never reach your intestinal tract where they are needed to do their job. Worthless! Original Medicine Multi-Probiotics are grown to withstand wide variations in pH and temperature.
I recommend my patients use Original Medicine Multi-Probiotic (8 billion plus live bacteria per capsule). These probiotics are not destroyed in the stomach. This guarantees that the probiotics will pass through your stomach unharmed and are delivered into your intestines.
These probiotics are then free and able to reach their target, the small and large intestine where they provide health-benefiting bacteria.
I recommend the Original Medicine Multi-Probiotic formula, which contains the most important strains of beneficial bacteria that are crucial to your health:
- Lactobacillus; 7 sub-species
- Bifidobacterium; 4 sub-species
