When most people think of probiotics they think of capsules of bacteria that aid in digestion and bowel movements. However, that is actually a very small portion of what they do.
Most people don’t know this, but your gut is home to 80% of your Immune System. In fact, the overall health of your body is directly determined by the health of your gut and the type of bacteria living there. And neglecting it can lead to many varying health situations down the road, each much more uncomfortable than mere indigestion.
You see, your gut exists to eliminate toxins. It's the primary detox pathway of your body. And good bacteria (probiotics) are what help make this possible. But, if you’re lacking these good bacteria and have an over-abundance of bad (disease-causing) bacteria, then your gut isn’t able to eliminate the toxins in it. This is a big problem for your gut. The toxins have to go somewhere.
And they do — your body reabsorbs them.
This is called auto-intoxication. These toxins then build up in your liver and your lymphatic system and your skin. They’re actually poisoning you.
Until now my recommendation to my patients has been to take a high-quality probiotic, containing a variety of live probiotics and soil-based organisms (spore biotics), to help you recondition your gut and support the growth of new, good bacteria.
Unfortunately, there aren’t very many out there. That’s why I developed the new Perfect Immune Defense Probiotic. With 40 billion live cultures, 11 different strains of bacteria (including 2 that are spore-based: Bacillus Subtillis and Bacillus Coagulans), and all in a digestive-resistant capsule to ensure it makes it to your lower GI tract without getting destroyed by stomach acid, this new probiotic truly is everything your gut needs to build and maintain optimal health.
The health of your body is directly affected by the health of your gut. If you’re not taking a really good probiotic, you need to start. I highly recommend you get Perfect Immune Defense Probiotics, take them every day, and set yourself on the road to a healthier gut and a healthier life.
100 years ago we lived off the land. We didn’t have GMOs or pesticides, and no one looked for “organic” food because what else was there?
We didn’t have petrochemicals entering our bodies through the air that we breathed or the water we drank, and especially not through the food we ate. And there were no processed foods, deficient in nutrients and live enzymes, and stuffed with sugars.
But today, despite our best efforts, we do. And these things effect the bacteria in our gut, the primary detox pathway of our body. In fact, they actually determine the type of bacteria living there.
Today, if you’re not regularly consuming fermented vegetables or taking a high-quality, multi-strain probiotic containing not only “regular” probiotics, but also spore biotics for gut reconditioning, you’re putting your health at risk. Because your body’s health starts in the gut.
The health of your gut, and the type of bacteria in it, directly affects your overall health. And what you eat, and the toxins in your environment, determines the type of bacteria living in your gut, whether it’s good or bad bacteria.
This is very important.
Now, one of the keys to improving the beneficial bacteria in your gut is carefully choosing what you eat.
If you eat high amounts of sugar and processed foods, you’re going to help the disease-causing bacteria increase by feeding them what they live on.
If you eat healthy, organic foods and vegetables, you’ll cause the beneficial bacteria to grow and populate. It won’t solve it, but it will definitely help.
You can also eat fermented vegetables, or yogurts if you make them at home from a good, live culture. But not store bought. There are almost no living bacteria after the yogurt is pasteurized in commercial yogurts.
Well, do you regularly consume processed or sugary foods?
Have you used medications, anti-inflammatories, antibiotics, acid blocking drugs, or steroids?
Have you been exposed to toxins or heavy metals through air pollution, water or the food you eat?
All of these things have an effect on the bacteria in your gut. In fact, they determine what kind of bacteria you have in your gut. And the kind of bacteria you have living in your gut can determine your overall health.
How important are these bacteria? You were first exposed to probiotics the day your were born.
On the way through the birth canal, during a natural birth, a baby receives bacteria from their mother. This is actually the event that starts bacterial colonization in the infant’s own intestinal tract. This is good bacteria. Bacteria that helps build your immune system and cleanse your body of toxins.
In fact, this is so important that new research now shows that many infants born through cesarean-sections have lowered health after birth, likely because they were not exposed to their mother’s bacteria in the birth canal.
Then, as we grow up, we’re faced with many threats to these beneficial bacteria, from processed foods and sugars, to chlorinated water and environmental toxins.
This is why probiotics have become so necessary and where they have such a powerful effect on not only your gut health, but your overall health.
The health of your body is directly affected by the health of your gut. If you’re not taking a really good probiotic, you need to start. I highly recommend you get Perfect Immune Defense Probiotics, take it every day, and set yourself on the road to a healthier gut and a healthier life.
Spore Biotics: The Cutting Edge of Microbiome Health
Your microbiome is the collection of trillions of bacteria cells living together in your gut.
Many probiotic formulas available have only one type of beneficial bacteria. But there are actually two — and both are needed for a healthygut!
You have reseeding probiotics, or “regular” probiotics. And you have probiotic spores, or Soil-Based Organisms (SBOs).
Spore Probiotics are a new, cutting edge, integration into probiotics. These are not the probiotics you’re used to that help break down your food. These are soil-based organisms that actually recondition your gut, helping to rid you of the disease-causing bacteria while providing needed nutrients for the good bacteria to help them grow and thrive.
You need to think of your microbiome as a garden.
The spores are the gardeners. And as any good gardener does, they pull weeds. These tiny bacterial spores detoxify your gut and replenish its energy and nutrient content, providing a healthy foundation and growth medium for your gut.
But you still need seeds.
Reseeding probiotics then provide the new seeds to replace the good “plants” in your garden that wither due to a lack of proper nutrients, or assaults from harsh chemicals and herbicide residues such as glyphosate, fluoridated and chlorinated water, stress, medications, processed foods and refined sugars, EMFs, and pollution.
Our ancestors’ diets included these bacteria spores, but today people avoid touching dirt and thoroughly scrub their vegetables to remove all traces of soil along with their naturally occurring organisms.
Perfect Immune Defense Probiotic contains three outstanding soil-based spore probiotic to help improve the condition of your microbiome and gut integrity and much more.
Because your gut needs both kinds of probiotics, many people will benefit from taking this probiotic, especially if you have a compromised gut or have taken an antibiotic or had a hospital stay within the last two years.
Your intestines are home to over 1,000 different species of bacteria, and each strain performs its own unique functions within the body. So it’s important your probiotic contains a variety of strains, not just one or two.
Here are the 11 specific beneficial bacteria strains in Perfect Immune Defense Probiotics:
DE111(r) Bacillus subtillis: A strain with many benefits, B. subtilis contains antioxidant properties, relieves constipation and ameliorates diarrhea as well as being potentially beneficial with obesity and diabetes.*
Lactobacillus acidophilus: Supports digestive and immune health, is acid- and bile-resistant and provides long lasting colonization.*
Lactobacillus casei: Supports a healthy immune response as well as aids in stress management by promoting healthy serotonin levels.*
Lactobacillus plantarum: Helps ease digestive distress and supports a healthy inflammatory response.*
Lactobacillus gasseri:Is said to reduce inflammation and in combination with other strains helps in the prevention of bacterial vaginosis, peptic ulcers as well as the control of ulcerative colitis and irritable bowel syndrome.*
Lactobacillus salivarius: Supports an already healthy inflammatory response in your gut and your immune health.* Supports healthy cholesterol levels already in the normal range.*
Lactobacillus rhamnosus: Can reduce symptoms of gastrointestinal distress, as well as support your healthy weight management and cholesterol levels already in the normal range.*
Bifidobacterium lactis: Promotes an already healthy inflammatory response including allergy response and supports the growth of other beneficial bacteria.*
Bifidobacterium longum: Promotes a healthy stress response and may reduce gastrointestinal symptoms.*
Bifidobacterium bifidum: Supports healthy blood sugar levels already in the normal range and may help ease gastrointestinal symptoms.*
Bacillus coagulans: Has been reported to help with irritable bowel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, constipation, intestinal gas and may help to increase T-cells.*
Many probiotic formulas are unfortunately a waste of time and money, especially considering that many of them will never even make it into your small intestine where they do their best work.
To determine if you have a high-quality probiotic you have to ask several different questions:
Is it viable?
Will it survive through the harsh acids of the stomach and make it into the lower intestine?
Does it remain stable for a long time without refrigeration?
Does it thrive in the intestine?
Is it in a high enough quantity of CFUs (Colony Forming Units — should be at least 20-30 billion) to ensure full colonization of the gut?
Unfortunately, many manufacturers make claims that their probiotic product supports digestive health when it most likely doesn’t, which is why it’s very important to know what criteria to look for.
Perfect Immune Defense Probiotic has 40 billion live cultures and 11 different strains, including 2 that are spore-based to ensure optimum reconditioning of your gut and reseeding with beneficial bacteria.
Our Perfect Immune Defense Probiotic is also both acid- and bile-resistant and comes in a revolutionary delayed release capsule for an extra layer of protection to ensure they get where they’re needed, giving you the digestion and Immune System protection you need for a healthy gut and a healthy life.
