Introduction

Probiotics are a supplement of the healthy flora found occurring naturally in our digestive systems and intestinal tracts. These Friendly Bacteria are essential for the health and natural flow of our vital organs, for general health and well-being and in particular for the digestive tract.

For generations, our predecessors have been finding ways to complement our diets. We are lucky not to be subjected to the fermented beetroot juice- beetroots soaked for 4-6 weeks in barrels of water until a thick lather of borscht is produced.

Luckily for us, these healthy bacteria or ‘Lactobacillus Acidophilus and Lactobacillus Bulgaricus’ live bacteria organisms are now included in yoghurt and help with food digestion and with strengthening the immune system.

The diets of the present day laden with hydrogenated fats, starches and carbohydrates led by the recipes of the fast food lifestyles we lead destroy the healthy flora of the digestive tract by lining the inside of the tract and coating the mucosal lining that battle pathogens from unhealthy diets, poor food choices and eating habits. These baddies found in processed foods, soft drinks and refined sugar-filled treats cling to the intestines and obstruct the healthy absorption of enzymes, vitamins and minerals which travel from there to our vital organs.

More than 100 trillion species of bacteria live in our gastro-intestinal tract. Not only do Acidophilus and Bulgaricus help to grow new flora in the gut, they also aid the balance of the harmful bacteria that our gut flora constantly battle and help to control the fungal properties found in unhealthy bacteria.
