The Bad Bacteria Inside Your Stomach

Aug 29, 2008
These harmful bacteria are know as pathogenic bacteria. They compete with the good bacteria for living space and food. They generally win if their numbers are large. They may also release toxic substance. This may cause many of the friendly bacteria to die off. They cause problems of digestion, bloating and constipation. They also cause gas formation and flatulence. They come mostly from your food and drinks, especially when these are stale and contaminated. That is why eating stale and contaminated food can give you a bad case of diarrhea. Over time if your intake of the good bacteria drops and coupled with the fact that you have been exposed to antibiotics, toxins and stress, this tips the balanced strongly in favour of the bad bacteria.

There are several things that makes bad bacteria be more function in your stomach rather than beneficial bacteria:

- The level of local acidity is one major influence and this is affected by your diet and digestive function and most importantly by increase in stress factors.

- Another important influence is the wave, like contraction of the intestines. If it is too rapid (as in diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome or colitis) this several reduces the efficiency of the flora. If it is too slow ( as in atonics or spastic constipation) this too cause changes in their function.

- The type of diet you eat is a major influence on bacterial health. They are healthier on a diet rich in complex carbohydrates (vegetables, whole grains, pulses) and low in animal fats, fatty meats and sugars. They also love cultured dairy products (especially "live" yogurts and cottage cheese). So not surprisingly the diet that is good for you is also ideal for them.

- They are also influenced to a major extent by the degree of infection by yeast and bacteria to which "their" territory (bowels) is subjected.

- They are severely upset by certain drugs especially antibiotics (antibiotics will kill all bacteria, friendly and disease causing bacteria)
Steroids (hormonal drugs as cortisone, ACTH, prednisolone or oral contraceptives) also cause great damage to the bowel flora.

Advance in microbial biotechnology have made it possible for us to selective culture life promoting beneficial bacteria. Years of research and development effort have made it possible for us to come up with stronger and studier strains that can better survive the gut. You can now take beneficial bacteria supplements.

How beneficial bacteria were selected.

Beneficial bacteria formula is uniquely derived from locally cultured human species. The common species that inhabit specific areas of our gut are then selected and cultured. As they were cultured, the selected species are stronger and sturdier. By unique gene technology, the bacteria will be resistant to acids and other elements in our diet like chilly and spices. The live bacteria are freeze dried.

Then they are formulated with a non diary creamer that will dilute the stomach acid and protect the bacteria as they become viable. We further add lactose as thus is the food of bacteria ( they are called lactobacillus).

Our germs are unique to us. They have adapted to our diet, water and weather. All these are unique. Our diet is high in chilly and spice. Our water contains both chlorine and fluorine. That is why you would get diarrhea if you drank the water while in 3rd world country. We are not talking about computers, cars or pens. These are live bacteria that are going to reside in our guts and serve us. They are unique to us.
