The Key to Crohn's

crohns.jpeg

Crohn’s disease, which affects over 560,000 people in the United States, is traditionally managed with surgery or prescription medications. Recent findings may change that. A new study has found a correlation between fungal and bacterial populations in Crohn’s patients. Fungi Candida Tropicalis, Serratia marcescens, and the bacteria E. coli were found in abundance in the guts of Crohn’s sufferers, with a strong lack of good bacteria. Even with factors such as genetics and diet taken into account, the amounts of pathogens were found consistently high across the board.

Fortunately, lactobacillus acidophilus has been shown to slow the growth of Candida in the bowel, and these friendly organisms actually help to produce a type of natural antibiotic that will kill off Candida overgrowth.

 

NEOLIFE’S ACIDOPHILUS PLUS differs from other probiotics in that it:

  • provides 5 billion live bacteria – more than the probiotics in 10 servings of yogurt!
  • supplies an exclusive blend of 5 types of probiotics
  • uses gel-guard protection to ensure probiotic delivery through stomach acid to the small intestineacidophilus

Acidophilus has many benefits, including but not limited to:

  • higher b-vitamin absorption
  • long-term colon health
  • reduced risk of colon cancer
  • easier lactose digestion
  • strengthened immunitycrohns-disease-research.jpg
  • reduce food allergy symptoms
  • less “bad” bacteria
  • IBD and IBS relief

 

Garlic has demonstrated significant anti-fungal activity and is especially active against candida, both in invivo and invitro studies, so an evening dose of Garlic is prudent.  (This should be taken some hours after taking Acidophilus, as Garlic can inactivate friendly probiotics, too.)

Winter, Probiotics, and Acidophilus Plus

winter.jpeg

With winter come brisk weather, weakened immune systems and sickness. Since eighty percent of your immune health lies in the gut, it only makes sense to ensure you give your gut the best nutrition you can, especially during these cold, chilly months. Probiotics take the top spot on a list of supplements for gut health. There are lots of them out there, lining the shelves of pharmacies and supplement stores, but only one will give you the full nutritional support you need.

GNLD’ S ACIDOPHILUS PLUS™

GNLD’s supplement of beneficial bacteria, Acidophilus Plus, combines potencacidophilusy with technology to guarantee that  live  microorganisms  survive  the  stomach  acid and reach the intestine to deliver viable  organisms to support optimal digestive and colon health.

  • Each capsule is filled  with five billion  live  microorganisms—as many as in 10 servings of yogurt—all in one daily serving!
  • You receive  beneficial  bacteria isolated  from  cultured  dairy foods,  so  you  get  the  benefits without  the  extra  calories  from these foods.
  • Acidophilus Plus  provides an  exclusive  blend  of  five types  of  clinically  provenlactic  acid-producing  bacteria: lactobacillus  acidophilus, lactobacillus bulgaricus, lactobacillus  casei,  Bifidobacterium bifidum,and streptococcus thermophilus.
  • The exclusive  Gel-Gard  enteric protection system guarantees deliveryby protecting against  harsh  stomach  acid and  ensuring  that  maximum numbers  of  live  bacteria  are delivered in the intestine.

GEL-GARD PROTECTION:

Exclusive Gel-Gard Enteric Protection System Guarantees Delivery of Beneficial Culturesstuff1

This technology involves wrapping the bacteria in a special gel-forming polysacharide, which is insoluble in acidic conditions of the stomach. This is then enclosed in a gelatin capsule. When the capsule reaches the  stomach,  it  dissolves and the contents of the capsule form an insoluble matrix called Gel-Gard.

HOW PROBIOTICS WORK FOR YOU:

Metabolism:

  • synthesize b-vitamins
  • lower levels of toxic/mutagenic compounds
  • reduce risk of colon cancer
  • promote long-term colon health

Digestion:

  • produce enzymes to digest lactose
  • improve lactose intolerance

Immunity:

  • strengthen innate immunity
  • reduce food allergy symptoms in children
  • keep “bad” bacteria in check
  • prevent travelers’ diarrhea
  • control irritable bowel disease (IBD) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Q: CAN I TAKE ACIDOPHILUSPLUS™ IF I AM LACTOSE INTOLERANT?

A: Yes.  Probiotics in Acidophilus Plus, though derived from cultured dairy foods, are purified so that the amount of  lactose  remaining  is  insignificant  to  create any undesirable effects in lactose intolerant individuals.

In fact, lactobacilli are capable of producing lactase, an enzyme that helps break down lactose and helps the digestion of these foods.

Q: DO INEED TO TAKE ACIDOPHILUS PLUS IF I CONSUME DAIRY PRODUCTS?

A: Some, but not all, dairy products contain live, active cultures and many are sold suggesting that they are beneficial for our health. Most of these are fresh products requiring refrigeration, and there is considerable doubt as to how many of the live bacteria actually survive in the stomach acid. Taking Acidophilus Plus guarantees that a significant number of live beneficial bacteria are delivered to the intestine.

Q: THE PRODUCT LABEL SAYS ACIDOPHILUS PLUS CONTAINS STREPTOCOCCUS. ISN’T THAT THE HARMFUL BACTERIA RESPONSIBLE FOR CAUSING STREP THROAT?

A: No. Some good bacteria have names that sound like bad bacteria. Streptococcus refers only on the shape of the bacterium, and has nothing to do with its ability to promote health or cause disease. (strept means “twisted” and coccus means “round.”) Streptococcus thermophilus—the species included in Acidophilus Plus—has been safely used for centuries to produce cultured dairy products.  The bacterial species associated with causing strep throat is streptococcus pyogenes.

Q: DOES ACIDOPHILUS PLUS NEED TO BE REFRIGERATED PRIOR TO OPENING THE BOTTLE?

A: Although not necessary, keeping Acidophilus Plus refrigerated prior to opening the bottle may further increase the shelf life of the product. It must be refrigerated afteropening the bottle to ensurethe potency of the beneficial cultures.

Q: CAN CHILDREN USE ACIDOPHILUS PLUS?

A: Yes. Anyone who can safely swallow the Acidophilus Plus capsule can take the product and enjoy its benefits.
