Biotics Research BioDoph-7 Plus - 60 capsules
Biotics Research's BioDoph-7 Plus contains a classic cocktail of beneficial microbes. Probiotics are defined as "a preparation of, or a product containing viable, defined microorganisms in sufficient numbers, which alter the microbiota (typically by colonization) in a compartment of the host, and by that, exert beneficial health effects in this host". Traditionally, probiotics have consisted of species from the genera Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium.
It is estimated that ~80% of the immune system is found in the gut, and the human body contains more bacteria living inside it than it has individual cells: 100 trillion microorganisms live in the gastrointestinal tract as compared with a mere 10 trillion human cells in the entire body. This means that there are 10X more cells of bacteria living in our intestines than what we possess in all of our bodily tissues put together. The majority of these bacterial strains are beneficial and are important for the development of the immune system. However, periods of stress or illness, fever, diarrhea, diet, the use of certain pharmaceuticals, and surgery can all cause an imbalance of these good bacteria and let bad or opportunistic bacteria and yeasts flourish — which negatively impacts health. Unfortunately, far too many people suffer from some degree of bowel dysbiosis, which can manifest as allergies, dermal irritation, fatigue, mood alterations, GI distress and leaky gut which can lead to even more serious consequences. Now further evidence indicates that obesity, diabetes and autoimmune conditions are linked to altered gut microflora. Given the prevalence of people that experience one or more of these symptoms, BioDoph-7 Plus® provides the symbolic support you may need.
The modern dilemma is that allergies and chronic health conditions are on the rise. Antibacterial soaps, washes, and wipes, chronic dehydration, mercury amalgams, total toxin load, drugs, and nutrient deficient diets have become a scourge on friendly bacteria. Documented research has indicated important benefits associated with the use of probiotic bacteria, including improved digestion, enzymatic activity, and overall modulating effects on the immune system. Formulated in collaboration with Dr. Gary Lasneski, BioDoph-7 Plus® contains a specific blend of 3 prebiotics and 7 probiotics to ensure optimal colonization with bacterial strains recognized for their bioactivity. Each capsule contains 20 billion viable organisms at the time of manufacture and consists of a proprietary blend of Inulin (from Chicory root), Arabinogalactans (from Larch), Marshmallow Root (extract), Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium lactis, Bifidobacterium breve, Lactobacillus paracasei, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus salivarius, and Streptococcus thermophilus.
