Health Benefits of Probiotics
Improves nutrient bioavailability (B vitamins, calcium, iron, zinc, copper, magnesium and phosphorus, among others). Decreases the frequency of acute diarrhea, improves symptoms of lactose intolerance and eases constipation. Lactic acid bacteria produce lactic acid which inhibits yeast growth (specifically Candida Albicans) by lowering intestinal pH (creating an acidic environment that inhibits microorganisms) and blocks the receptors or adhesion sites of pathogens, creating a barrier against infectious organisms. As lactic acid bacteria actively convert lactose into lactic acid, ingestion of certain active species may help lactose-intolerant individuals tolerate more lactose; lactic acid bacteria in the intestines breaks lactose down (by producing the lactose digesting enzyme lactase) into short-chain fatty acids and other substances that can be absorbed by the colon. Promotes the growth of healthy bacteria in the colon and reduce the conversion of bile into carcinogens. Enhances immunity by regulating lymphocytes and antibodies.
