Forget What You Know About Probiotics
You are more bacteria than you are human with 10 trillion human cells outnumbered by the 100 trillion bacteria cells in your body. Learn the latest information from the Human Microbiome Project and the Colorspore project that illustrate just how important these 100 trillion passengers are. Major studies over the past 5 years have outlined the required characteristics of a true probiotic and requirements for effective clinical use; over 95% of current products on the nutritional market do not meet the requirements, however the pharmaceutical industry has understood and embraced the secret to effective probiotic therapy for over 50 years. These studies further demonstrate the benefits of a true probiotic, which include improved and complete digestion, immune development and modulation, and key nutrient production. Learn how well established probiotic foods and almost all of the probiotic products in the marketplace fall short in providing these needed benefits for your patients. Learn about the clinical applications of commensal spore based organisms in health and disease.
