Probiotics are associated with treating everything from IBS to certain forms of cancer, diabetes, allergies, eczema, neurological disorders, and even the effects of aging. But ultimately we at Devine Wellness promote the use of probiotics for prevention of illness – our decisions now, while we are healthy, will have the most impact on our future wellbeing.

So, what are these hundreds of tiny living organisms we should be looking after?
Here’s where it gets a little confusing. Each type of bacteria is different. The Perfect Blend is one of the few products available that has not only multiple strains, but a total of 13 different strains of live vital bacteria. They all work in harmony performing different tasks, and some are there as assistants to the other more effective bacteria as they help them to grow stronger.

 

Heres a little more on 3 of the key types of little miracles, and what they do exactly:


Lactobacillus Species

  • Most predominant bacteria in the small intestines
  • Ferment carbohydrates and produce lactic acid, which creates an environment in the digestive tract that discourages the growth of unwanted microorganisms; the ones that can cause sickness and disease
  • The lactic acid also increases your body’s ability to absorb minerals such as calcium, copper, magnesium, and iron. Imagine all the minerals you could be missing out on otherwise?!

L. Acidophilus tpb_mark

  • Overall digestion
  • Proper nutrient absorption
  • Relief from digestional discomfort
  • Strength against antibiotic damage
  • Immune health
  • Inhibiting pathogens and producing natural antobiotics
  • Urinary and vaginal health in women

L. Fermentum tpb_mark

  • Overall digestion
  • Neutralising toxic biproducts of digestion
  • Strengthing against foodborne pathogens
  • Detoxification
  • Immune health
  • Oral health
  • Vaginal health

Other Lactobacillus in TPB are :

  • Lactobacillus Casei tpb_mark
  • Lactobacillus Helveticus tpb_mark
  • Lactobacillus Bulgaricus tpb_mark
  • Lactobacillus Leichmannii tpb_mark
  • Lactobacillus Caucasicus tpb_mark
  • Lactobacillus Lactis tpb_mark
  • Lactobacillus Fermenti tpb_mark
  • Lactobacillus Brevis tpb_mark
  • Lactobacillus Plantarum tpb_mark
  • Lactobacillus Delbreukii tpb_mark

Which aid:

  • Overall digestional health
  • Immune health
  • Producing natural antibiotics
  • Decreasing pathogens
  • Digestional health
  • Nutrient absorbtion
  • Aiding growth of other good bacteria
  • Oral health
  • Lowering urine pH
  • Vaginal health

Other well recognised Lactobacillus for our health are:

  • L. Salivarius
  • L. Paracasei
  • L. Gasseri
  • L. Reuteri

 

Bifidobacterium Species

  • Billions of Bifidobacterium line the walls of the large intestine (colon). They help ward off invasive harmful bacteria
  • Like the Lactobacillus strain, Bifidobacterium also produce lactic acid, lowering the pH level, and providing up to 70 percent of the energy required by our cells that line the intestinal wall. This enhances the natural protective barrier in the gut, and helps with the absorption of minerals such as calcium, copper, magnesium, iron, and zinc
  • Bifidobacterium also produce B-complex vitamins and vitamin K. As we age, the numbers of these bacteria decline, and need to be replenished

B. Bifidum tpb_mark

  • First to colonise the intestines of babies – this is vital for the development of a strong immune system
  • Preventing growth of unwanted bacteria, molds and yeasts
  • Overall digestion + breaking down large molecules
  • Nutrient absorption
  • Digestional health and strengthening resistance to travellers’ diarrhea

Other well recognised Bifidobacterium for our health are:

  • B. Longum
  • B. Infantis

 

Bacillus Species

  • Bacillus bacteria are rod-shaped, spore-bearing bacteria that produce lactic acid
  • This type is a gutsy (get it?!) bacterium. Because it is spore-bearing, it is highly resistant to heat, moisture, and light, making it highly resistant to stomach acid, and readily colonises in the small intestine
  • Bacillus also resides in the body longer than other bacteria and is excreted slowly

B. Coagulans tpb_mark

  • Overall digestion
  • Aiding bowel movement
  • Vaginal health

 

So, with the right amount of these good bacteria, your body will:

  • Absorb nutrients and minerals faster – especially predigested superfood nutrients already in The Perfect Blend – and therefore have MORE ENERGY!
  • Be able to break down foods effectively and remove toxins and unwanted products from the body
  • Produce natural antibiotics to aid against pathogens
  • Have excellent oral health reducing the intake of unwanted bacteria into the system
  • Neutralise biproducts of digestion and aid against digestional discomfort
  • Have a strong healthy overall immune system
  • Balanced hormones for all, and healthy reproductive system for women

… And once you’ve got this in check you’d be amazed at the roll on effect to the rest of your body. Your gut health is proven to effect:

  • Brain
  • Blood
  • Heart
  • Skin
    … what more can we say?!?


1 tsp a day and you’ll be away 😉
