Keys to a Longer Life – Part II
Even though we think we can eat whatever we want, our body has to deal with every choice we make. Choosing what foods we put into our body can upset a delicate balance between war and peace – between health and disease.
Without sufficient probiotics, the body is vulnerable to obesity, suppressed immune response and even cancer. Intestinal bacterial composition is a huge component when fighting these health problems – even more important than dieting, exercising and genetic makeup.
In her book, The Alchemy of Nourishment, Esther Cohen states that our digestive tract, specifically the intestines, provide home for 70% of our immune system. These bacteria provide immunity we don’t have to work for – they work for us.
Probiotics are the soldiers on the front line of the battle for our health, protecting us and constantly guarding against unhealthy bacteria and pathogens invading our body. We just need to provide them with the right environment to keep them nourished.
When we go out of our way to take extra probiotics, we actively become resilient and improve our ability to adapt to any disease invasion.
What Probiotics Do for You
Probiotic actually means “for life,” while antibiotic means “anti-life.” That’s an indication of how these amazing bacteria fight for our bodies against disease.
Imagine an army defending your immune system. If you are in good health, your body contains over a trillion strong and healthy bacteria whose primary job is defending your immune system. This army is called probiotics.
According to the Journal of Pediatrics, taking daily probiotics for 6 months was a safe, effective way to reduce fever, rhinorrhea and cough, as well as the number of sick days for children ages 3 to 5.
Probiotics such as Lactobacillus bifidus (L. Bifidus) are also a proven treatment of cirrhosis and chronic hepatitis by improving digestion and reducing liver strain.
Bad bacteria in the gut have been linked to diseases like inflammatory bowel disease, and even to asthma. Probiotics also fight against these bad bacteria. Future research is poised to determine whether these good bacteria are even more important than stress relief in bettering these diseases.
Diet, exercise and genes are not the only factors determining if someone can become obese. Intestinal bacterial composition may also account for obesity. Without probiotics to fight for your immune system, you may find yourself bloating up!
In fact, since stress is linked to our immune system, and probiotics are the champion fighters for our immunity, probiotics actually lower the effects of stressors on our body. Published research findings have highlighted the very important role of how probiotics in the body reduce stress and even treat stress-related disorders such as anxiety and depression.
L. bifidus is even known for helping in creation of the B vitamins by fostering a healthy intestinal environment for B-complex vitamins and vitamin K. Probiotics also promote healthy digestion of food through a healthy intestinal environment and prevent digestive disorders such as constipation, gas and food allergies.
