Understanding bacteria isn’t as black and white as most of us might imagine. After all, to consider our own intestinal tracts, our mouths and even our genitals as breeding grounds for bacteria is perhaps not the most pleasant piece of imagery. The truth is though that, as humans and like all animals on earth, we play host to millions - billions even - of microscopic tenants with whom we share a special bond.
The bacteria and yeasts which exist in our body create miniature ecosystems known as flora. These flora, like any other society, require balance. A balance between good and bad. We allow certain ‘good bacteria’ to survive inside us in return for their ability to purge of us those ‘bad bacteria’. It is a trade off that not only works for us but is essential to avoid infection.
Probiotics are those live bacteria and yeasts that are good for you.They generally live in fermented foods with active live cultures such as yoghurt. The most common strains available are Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium.
How do you set yourself apart from other probiotics in what could be considered an already saturated market? What makes this probiotic formula so unique is its sheer force of numbers. The two central strains available in most supplements are variations of the Bifidobacteria and Lactobacillus.
While the majority of supplements provide you with just two strains of bifidobacteria, Dr. Langer's has five. And while others have only one strain of lactobacillus, This supplement delivers a staggering ten.
Swanson Probiotics Dr Stephen Langers Ultimate 16 Strain Probiotic even now contains Lactobacillus reuteri; a probiotic which offers unique safeguards for both colon health and immune system function.
Perhaps the most beneficial feature of this once in a lifetime formula is the way it goes beyond your average probiotics and offers us two remedies you simply won’t find in any non prescribed products. Prebiotic FOS and ConcenTrace® (a patented trace mineral formula) give you both precursors to and facilitators of the other probiotics already in the complex.
Most of us won’t find them in our regular diets and yet they are absolutely vital to the enzymatic processes necessary for healthy digestion and the maintenance of beneficial bacteria.
