The Good Bacteria Story

Youngevity Dr Wallach SupraLife


A healthy intestine rich with proper bacteria leads to good bowel movements, vitamin and hormone production and a long list of other health benefits.

If you have a healthy intestinal tract, you have over 400 different species of microorganisms living there. They make up about two pounds of your body weight! In the stomach very few are able to survive because of the acidity. In fact, there may be as few as 10 to 100 organisms in every milliliter of stomach content. In the small intestine there might be anywhere from 100 to 1000 organisms per milliliter. As you reach the junction between the small and large intestine the number begins to grow. In the large intestine or colon, as many as one trillion organisms per milliliter are common (see Modern Nutrition in Health and Disease, Golden).

Good Bacteria Do Several Things

1. ACIDIFY THE COLON – The ideal pH of the colon is between 6.7 and 6.9. Acetic acid and lactic acid are some of the by-products that help do this. The acid environment inhibits the growth of harmful bacteria such as salmonella, which causes food poisoning, shigella, the cause of diarrhea and E-Coli, which can cause intestinal disease and kidney failure. Good bacteria also produce a volatile fatty acid, which along with the other acids, make it difficult for fungus and yeast (candida) to survive.

2. NORMALIZE BOWEL MOVEMENTS – Good bacteria can decrease the time it takes for waste products to move through the digestive system. They also stop diarrhea and correct constipation.

3. IMPROVE THE ABILITY OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM – They help stimulate the formation of antibodies which protect our bodies against infectious disease.

4. HELP PRODUCE VITAMINS – Good bacteria help produce Vitamin K, which is necessary for blood clotting and the formation of new bone.

5. AID IN PRODUCTION OF LACTASE – This is an enzyme necessary to digest milk and milk products. Without lactase milk allergies are a sure thing.

6. REMOVE TOXIC ELEMENTS – The L. Salivarius deactivates various toxic compounds produced by other organisms or from foods.

7. ARE INSTRUMENTAL IN REDUCING CHOLESTEROL – A high fiber diet and good bacterial flora can lower cholesterol levels, protect against colon cancer and even improve fat digestion by providing more bile acids.

8. ELIMINATE GAS PROBLEMS – Proper bacteria in the colon eliminate bowel gas and sweeten the breath. Bad breath (halitosis) is very frequently caused when the wrong bacteria take over in the colon and produce foul smelling waste. These gases can be expelled or reabsorbed into the blood and carried to the lung and exhaled. All the breath mints in the world won’t correct bad breath caused by bowel problems.
