Island Flora Probiotics. Amazingly, 90% of the cells in your body are bacteria — not your own body cells! This population of foreign cells makes up what can be called “The Bacteria System.” Some of these bacteria are potentially deadly, such as e. coli, and some are necessary for life. The balance of bad flora and “friendly” flora (probiotics) has a lot do do with your overall health.
Unfortunately, it is easy for the good probiotic bacteria to be killed off by antibiotics in food, medicines, soap, etc. Antibiotic exposure can come from surprising sources, such as cow’s milk that is bottle fed to babies. Good bacteria is also destroyed by chlorinated water, X-rays, toxins, junk food, stress, and so forth. When the good bacteria are killed off, bad bacteria and fungus can take over and wreak havoc on your health.
The health of the Bacteria System has its most obvious impact on the health of the intestines and the skin, but it also impacts virtually every body structure and function.
Benefits of Probiotics:
- normal, healthy skin
- healthy immune system
- cholesterol levels
- urinary health
- bowel function
- dairy tolerance
- normal body flora
The intestines are loaded with bacteria. Here, the good bacteria help the body to maintain the proper pH levels, produce vitamins and enzymes, digest food, eliminate toxins, maintain the integrity of the intestinal wall, and keep bad microorganisms from taking over.
The intestines are the first line of defense for the Bacteria System. If the good intestinal bacteria die out, bad bacteria and fungus take over and inhibit the normal functions of the intestines; toxins are no longer eliminated properly; then the bad bacteria, fungus and toxins can spread to other parts of the body — notably in the skin.
Intestinal problems are often most visible in the skin. Like the intestines, liver and kidneys, the skin helps the body eliminate toxins. When the intestines lose part of their detoxification function, there is a greater toxic burden on the skin. Also, when the intestines do not function properly, nutrition is compromised, which means the skin will not receive the proper nutrients. Skin disorders often respond very well to probiotics.
Unfortunately, many people try to treat acne and other skin disorders with antibiotics. While this may help in the short run, it causes long-term damage to the body’s Bacteria System. Antibiotics kill both good and bad bacteria, but they do not kill fungus, yeast and Candida. Usually, it is the bad bacteria that come back; meanwhile, fungus can take over without competition from the other microorganisms.
Antibiotics used to treat an infection in one part of the body can kill off the good bacteria throughout the body. As a result, a small problem such as a childhood ear infection can set someone up for a lifelong chronic infection in a completely different part of the body.
Many parts of the body are susceptible to chronic infections by fungus and bad bacteria; this can shorten life and cause a lifetime of misery. Chronic infections can affect the respiratory system, the urinary system, the sinuses, the ears, the gums, nails, scalp, prostate, kidneys, and so on.
There are many strains of flora probiotics with benefits that impact different parts of the intestines. For this reason, when you buy probiotics, it is important to select a blend of different types of bacteria. When selecting a probiotic blend, it is best to consider not just the number of live bacteria cells, but also the number of strains of bacteria.
We believe the Island Flora Probiotics blend is far superior to ordinary probiotics. Island Flora is cold-processed at constant humidity levels, to ensure the viability of individual cells. Island Flora contains 16 powerful strains of friendly bacteria. Compared to most ordinary probiotics, Island Flora contains up to 8 times more strains and 12 times the number of viable cells per gram.
Each Island Flora Probiotics veggie capsule contains 15 BILLION live cells at the time of manufacture. These bacteria strains are resistant to acid and bile, which means more bacteria survive the stomach to make it into the intestines. Island Flora is also room-temperature stable, so you do not have to keep it refrigerated. Island Flora is vegetarian and kosher.
Suggested use: Take 2 to 4 capsules daily on an empty stomach with milk or water. May increase dosage substantially, depending on need or as directed by a health professional.
