Probiotics Help Keep Balance for Better Health

The digestive system normally has what is called “good” bacteria and “bad” bacteria. Maintaining the correct balance between the “good” bacteria and the “bad” bacteria is necessary for optimal health. Things like medications, diet, diseases and the environment can upset that balance.
Research is establishing supplementation with probiotics can be important for a variety of reasons. “Probiotics enhance the immune system by favorably altering the GI tract micro-ecology,” said ALTRUM Manager Greg Sawyer. “They prevent unfriendly organisms from gaining a foothold in the body, as well as the overgrowth of yeast and fungus, therefore, improving digestive support.”
Probiotics — ‘For Life’
The word “probiotic” means “for life,” which is why these microflora are so important. The scientific definition of a probiotic is: A live microbial feed supplement that beneficially affects the host by improving its intestinal microbial balance.
What Probiotics Can Do
  • Help improve digestion and absorption of vitamins
  • Help stimulate the body’s natural defense mechanism — the immune system
  • Help manufacture vitamins needed by the body
  • Help inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria that cause digestive stress * **
In the April issue of ALTRUM News we examine the benefits of probiotics and super foods for digestion and well being.
