If you are on the Body Ecology Diet because you have gluten sensitivity, suffer from leaky gut syndrome, have struggled with candida or parasites, have a compromised immune system, experience fatigue, or have simply decided that you may be addicted to sugar, consistently maintaining a high level of beneficial microbes in your gastrointestinal tract is essential.
Whether you are drinking InnergyBiotic for a restorative boost of energy or Dong Quai Biotic as a hormone tonic that provides intestinal support, you probably already know that these probiotic beverages are light, refreshing, and make your gut feel good, but what do the cultures actually do? And how do they work synergistically to support one another in the gastrointestinal tract?
All of Body Ecology's Probiotic Beverages contain important organisms:
The Lactobacilli are anaerobic bacteria that produce lactic acid.
Lactic acid suppresses the growth of pathogenic bacteria. Lactobacilli are not only associated with a healthy gut, but a great deal of research has also shown that these friendly microbes reduce systemic inflammation and have a distinct anti-cancer effect.
If beneficial bacteria have a poster child, it is L. acidophilus, which literally means "acid-loving milk-bacterium". In the media and commercially, no other friendly microbe has received as much attention and seen as much popular application as L. acidophilus. This is because it occurs naturally in the gut and, in the adult gastrointestinal tract, is one of the most common beneficial microbes. L. acidophilus takes up residence predominately in the small intestine and can also be found in the large intestine.
Lactobacillus delbrueckii is another anaerobic bacterium that produces lactic acid by metabolizing sugars. What sets this Lactobacillus apart is its use as a fermenting agent in yogurts. Until 1984, it was known as L. bulgaricus. Named after Bulgaria, it was first identified in 1905 by Stamen Grigorov. Today, we now know that L. debrueckii, formally known as L. bulgaricus, has four subspecies, delbrueckii, lactis, indicus, and bulgaricus. We also now know that, depending on the subspecies, L. delbrueckii is able to ferment a variety of sugary substrates besides lactose, such as glucose, fructose, mannose, galactose, glucose, and maltose.
L. delbrueckii is a transient probiotic, meaning that it survives in the gastrointestinal tract only for a short period of time. Like a friend who comes to stay with you for the weekend, transient probiotics brighten up the gut and have their own health benefits. L. delbrueckii synthesizes folic acid in the intestinal tract and, like L. acidophilus, produces lactic acid and inhibits pathogenic bacteria from colonizing.
Probiotic liquids are quickly becoming a popular way to get your dose of beneficial microflora because they are delicious, energizing, and most of all, convenient. While many Body Ecology followers love making their own fermented foods and drinks, the ease and convenience of getting healthy probiotics just from opening a bottle is an appealing option for today's busy health enthusiast.
But the big question that everyone asks is: which probiotic liquid is best for me? So we'd like to shed some light on this important question.
The most essential concept to recognize about Body Ecology's probiotic liquids is that they all do some very beneficial things for your health.
ALL of the Body Ecology probiotic liquids will help you:
If you have specific health goals, this is where you may want to zero in on the ideal probiotic liquid for your needs:
All of the Body Ecology probiotic liquids have the right probiotics for the human digestive tract so that your inner ecosystem will benefit from hardy strains of good bacteria and yeast that work together to help create your best health. There are many overall benefits to probiotic liquids, although each one can be used for specific health, taste, or convenience goals.
It's fun and beneficial to try a range of fermented drinks so that you can get a variety of healthy probiotic bacteria and yeast to populate your intestines and boost your immunity.
The microflora present in Body Ecology probiotic beverages all play different and equally useful roles. The resident Lactobacillus acidophilus and transient Lactobacillus delbrueckii both support each other, creating a truly balanced inner ecosystem. They break down food, allowing you to get the most benefit from what you eat, break down and neutralize toxins and carcinogens in the intestinal tract, and synthesize nutrients and vitamins that promote overall wellbeing.
