Without realizing it, every day your children eat processed, over-refined, or sterilized foods that destroy the natural balance of healthy flora in their intestines.
Even when eating a so-called healthy diet, your bodies flora is bombarded with chemicals, pesticides, and antibiotics that further endanger this delicate balance of friendly bacteria. In addition, most of us don't eat enough if any of the traditional, naturally fermented foods that contain these bacteria
Once the beneficial flora decline in number,
damaging substances gain the upper hand and your health suffers: your gut
becomes damaged and inflamed, toxins get into your bloodstream and cause
distressing symptoms, nutritional deficiencies occur, and a host of other
health conditions can result.
If you consume probiotics every day, as food and/or supplements, you can help maintain the proper balance of bacterial flora in the gut and thus enjoy better health and vitality.
