"Most Strains and Highest Probiotic Potency"
In a recent comparison by ConsumerLab.com, a third-party testing organization on the Web, no less than 25 probiotic products were tested to see if they had the potency and the strains that they claimed. Of those 25, 8 completely failed the test with less than 1% of the claimed number of live bacteria. In fact, 6 products had only a few thousand live bacteria of the expected minimum of 1 billion! The report from ConsumerLab.com stated, products that did not claim a specific number of live bacteria at time of use were much more likely to have been low in live bacteria. It is quite likely that products low in bacteria may not work. Some clinical studies have shown that products with less than 1 billion live bacteria may be ineffective. MORE POSITIVE STRAINS MEANS MORE POSITIVE RESULTS!
The Unseen World Within Us:
Inside each of us is a vast ecosystem made up of billions of microorganisms. They coexist, sometimes harmoniously, but often in conflict. This unseen world is largely responsible for maintaining the body's vital chemical and hormone balance. Resident friendly bacteria, or "probiotics" form dense colonies on the mucosal surface of the gastrointestinal tract, creating a protective barrier against pathogens. By competing for space and nutrients, they safeguard us from harmful viruses, bacteria, parasites and yeast. Transient probiotic strains take up temporary residence in the GI tract as they are passing through, but nonetheless perform critical functions in maintaining health. Our bodies were designed to host both friendly and harmful flora in a complex symbiotic relationship from which we normally enjoy tremendous benefit.
