In today’s antiseptic climate, the term “friendly bacteria” seems a contradiction. Bacteria are bacteria aren’t they. And as such they are the enemies of our health and well-being, right?
I have used probiotic supplements topically to address external conditions, and I have used probiotic supplements and probiotic-rich foods to address internal conditions. In either case those friendly bacteria have proven their friendship. They have demonstrated their capability of dealing with the bacteria who are/were causing problems.
As I have previously stated, your intestinal tract will have 5 to 8 pounds of bacteria residing in it. I do not know how to determine the weight of bacteria we carry around on our skin. Depending upon what, or who, you are hosting, these bacteria will either keep you healthy or make you ill. On your skin, the friendly bacteria supply a range of benefits from protecting you from infections to preventing body odor.
Internally, the friendly bacteria manufacture B vitamins and other nutrients, they produce certain natural antibiotics that support your immune function, they keep the intestinal walls clean and in good repair, and they stimulate peristaltic movement. The wrong ones produce toxins, produce carcinogenic compounds, cause cracks and holes in the intestinal wall, and fill your intestines with putrefying sludge.
These bacteria are either important gains in our well-being, or they are serious obstacles to our health.
Why not just wipe out all bacteria and have a germ-free gut and skin? There are two reasons:
- We would die without the benefits of beneficial bacteria.
- The destructive bacteria are stronger than our old poisons, and are more adaptable than our ability to create new poisons.
The most effective means of controlling the destructive bacteria is to maintain the balance of viable colonies of beneficial or friendly bacteria.
Simplexity Health’s probiotic supplements have an edge over other brands because they incorporate the AFA algae into the colonies contained in the capsules. Thus when awakened, those beneficial bacteria are supplied with a ready source of complete nutrition. This means they can set about implanting vigorous colonies in your intestinal tract. Other brands may have larger numbers of viable organisms contained in the capsule. But the thing that really matters is the number of living, vigorous colonies of friendly bacteria that implant in your gut or are available to work for you on your skin.
