Let's talk about "Probiotics" for "Weight Loss"

Okay . . . so we've been talking a lot about how losing our "good" bacteria in the large intestine is the cause to all of our ailments . . . big or small.

And I'm sure many of you are taking a probiotic . . .

But . . . the question is . . . is it "compliant" and the "right" one.

There are 2 genus of probiotics that are the most popular and have been proven to by conventional medicine and science to provide healthy benefits in vitro . . .

And these probiotics would be . . . Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium . . . with most probiotics supplements including these 2 strains along with 3 or 4 others.

Now . . . probiotics are typically measured in colony-forming units (CFU). And higher doses have been found to produce the best results in most studies. Meaning . . . between 1 -20 billion CFU.

But . . . the problem is this . . . and the reason they say higher doses work best . . . is due to many of these probiotic cultures die on their journey getting to the intestines. Therefore, not being stable to do their job.

So let's use an example . . . now, when you buy a probiotic supplement . . . it's supposed to have 100% (or there about) active cultures. At least that's what we paid for . . .

But most of these cultures are not "heat" resistant. Therefore, don't make it through the acid of the stomach to get to the intestines to do their job of recolonizing our "good" bacteria. As a result . . . only about 20% of the probiotics actually get to the intestines.

And this is why science says these probiotics work well in "high" doses. They're just counting on safety in numbers. And manufacturers are counting on you buy more to feel good which is highly profitable for them.

This is why "spore-forming" probiotic are best . . . why you ask???
