Helping You...Probiotic

Posted by Steve on August 02, 2001 at 04:17:26:

Hi,
In a previous post you made mention about a new
"super probiotic" that is in the works. Can you
tell me more, or where I might find more information
on it.

Thanks

This "super probiotic" is already in use in Europe. It will be available around Fall time. All I know about it, is that it is supposed to contain EVERY bacteria scientifically proven to support human intestinal tract. It is also supposed to have a count something ridiculous like 500 Billion organisms per capsule. 500 billion organisms per day has been shown to put IBS and ulcerative colitis into remission. The doctor getting this formula is Dr. Mercola. He has an excelent website. By signing up for his free newsletter, you will know first-hand when this formula will be ready. Until it is, a product called FLORA SOURCE is the best there is. 14 strains of bacteira and 15 billion per capsule. Other companied claim more bacteria per capsule but independant lab testing has never shown this to be true. Lab testing HAS confirmed that what FLORA SOURCE says is in each capsule IS in each capsule. go to www.mercola.com for more info

Do you think that Flora Source is a LOT better than Primal Defense, or are they both about the same? I jsut invested in two bottles of the PD, that's why I'm wondering.



Summary of using Flora Source and Primal Defense

well,....BETTER is the wrong word to use. Both of these probiotics accomplish different things.

Flora Source is more for re-populating the GI tract. It contains organisms resident to the human GI system. These organisms, are MEANT to be there. They keep harmful microorganisms and toxins from damaging you.

Primal Defense contains organisms that are NOT meant to be resident in your GI system. These organisms are transient organisms which means they are just "passing through". While passing through, these organisms perform vital tasks including digesting food, producing vitamins. But, some things that are unique to SBO's, are,....they produce lactoferrin (an iron-binding protein that makes the iron available to you and not to bad bugs). They also increase the response of the immune system so dramatically, that it is almpost like having a second immune system (many sources on SBO's quote this, but I find it to have good merrit. Many people report less colds and flu's while taking them).

SBO's also fight bad bugs NO MATTER HOW OUTNUMBERED THEY ARE. It just takes a lot longer when they are less in numbers. They also rapidly change the GI tract to a slightly acid state. When this happens, bad bugs CANNOT thrive.

After an antifungal treatment (or during), I advise taking Primal Defense. Once the bugs are clear, Flora Source is needed to re-populate the intestines.

NOTE: If you stop taking Primal Defense, the results will stop. Once again, this is because these are transient organisms and will only remain in the GI tract from 48-72 hours. If you stop taking the product, you will lose the benefit. Now,....You don't HAVE to take it forever. It is just very useful to overcome dysbiosis. It REALLY works. You CAN take a small maintainance dosage of about 3-5 caps per day if you want on-going protection. Once your flora is established, you don't necessarily need SBO's. However, there is considerable evidence that we get these organisms on a daily basis on organic foods that we ate before modern times.

I hope this helps you

Thank you for the wonderful information. How do you know when your intestoinal tract is clear of dysbiosis, other than doing the intestional permeability test? Would one PD pill a day be enough as a maintenance does while taking FS?

3 ultrazorb caplets, or 5 capsules would be an effective maintainance. Primal Defense really does allow the resident organsisms to thrive more and unfortunately, it only works if you keep taking it. I continue to take 5 ultrazorb caps a day becuase i suffered from IBD and a host of other problems.

You WILL know when the dysbiosis is gone. You will eat without feeling symptoms. You will have bowel movements without planning out a strategy to keep having them. Your energy will be consistant. The signs are obvious. hang in there! :)
