- Product Benefits
Your gastrointestinal tract contains more than 500 different strains of bacteria, living in different places and performing different functions. The 14 separate stains of good bacteria present in Lifestream Advanced Probiotics help to support and benefit these different areas within the gastrointestinal tract. When in their effective colonization sites in the gut, these active probiotics help support the immune and digestive systems and promote healthy intestinal function and elimination. It is of fundamental importance that we have an adequate level of these probiotic bacteria in our bodies at all times.
Healthy MicrofloraToday’s lifestyle of stress and poor nutrition can severely compromise the natural balance of essential microflora in the gut. Topping up these bacteria is a natural way to help keep your digestive and immune systems functioning correctly. The complete formula in Lifestream Advanced Probiotics helps balance and maintain optimum microflora with 14 strains covering five of the main genus types: Lactobacillus, Lactococcus, Bifidobacterium, Streptococcus and Bacillus.
Why take Probiotics?If you are eating a perfectly balanced diet, without a lot of processed products, and have a stress-free life, you may not need probiotics as a supplementary aid to maintain your general health and immunity. However, nowadays, in the modern world, we encounter daily stress from our environment and from the foods we eat. In addition, we tend to consume many forms of chemicals such as antacids, antibiotics, food additives, alcohol and other foods and drugs, which lead to a disturbance and reduction in the concentration of beneficial bacteria within our gastrointestinal tract.
By the age of 2 or 3, most children have developed some degree of intestinal balance and a fairly effective immune system. However, as we age, environmental and nutritional factors very often disturb this balance and create the need for probiotic supplementation. The result is Dysbiosis, a disruption of the microflora and an increased susceptibility to potentially pathogenic bacteria.
Dysbiosis may be caused when we are subjected to stressors such as:Antibiotic therapy, anti-inflammatory steroids or chemotherapy, Changes in food and water normally associated with travel, Hormonal fluctuations around puberty, during menstruation, pregnancy, post-natally or during the menopause, AgeImmunological compromise, Unhealthy dietStress/modern lifestyle, Infections or illness, Malabsorption or inflammatory bowel disease, such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis
