Our hunter-gatherer ancestors ate dirt. All day, every day. For millions of years. When you never wash your hands or your food (or anything for that matter) you pretty much can’t avoid it. But with all that soil came billions of soil-based organisms (mostly bacteria and yeast) that entered their mouths daily and populated their guts. Most were “friendly” bacteria that actually helped them better digest food and ward off infections. In fact, much of the human immune system evolved to depend on these healthy “flora” living in us symbiotically. Several trillion bacteria live in our gut today – some good and some bad. Much of your health - and often your weight - depend on which of the two is winning the flora war.
The problem today is that we don't eat dirt; we wash everything. Of course, given what is in and on the dirt around us, it’s probably best that we do wash it all. But in the process we never get a chance to ingest those healthy bacteria that our genes expect us to. In most healthy people this doesn't usually present a problem. As long as there are some healthy gut bacteria present, as long as we don't get too stressed out (stress hormones can kill off healthy flora), too sick (diarrhea and vomiting are ways the body purges bad bacteria – but it purges good bacteria with them), or take antibiotics (antibiotics tend to kill most bacteria – that’s their job), and as long as we are eating well, those healthy bacteria can flourish and keep us well. Unfortunately, we live in a time when stress is everywhere, where we do tend to get sick or take antibiotics, where certain processed foods support the growth of unhealthy bacteria and yeast forms while choking out the healthy flora. Many people whose diets include daily doses of yogurt or acidophilus are able to maintain healthy gut flora, but these sources aren’t always reliable (pasteurizing and added sugars can reduce their effectiveness), and not everyone can tolerate dairy that well. For that reason, it’s wise to take probiotic supplements.
Here are just a few of the benefits and features of Primal Flora:
Support Your Immune System
When your immune system works properly, you rarely - if ever – get sick. And about 80% of your immune system resides in your digestive tract! It’s those trillions of healthy bacteria (also known as micro flora or probiotics), living symbiotically in you, that help eliminate the bad bacteria that are always trying to gain a foothold – the ones that cause all manner of disease and illness. Unfortunately, many common things in life conspire to upset the balance between the beneficial bacteria and the harmful, unhealthy bacteria – stress, poor diet, excess sugar and simple carbs, alcohol use, antibiotic use and a host of others. A simple daily dose of Primal Flora can help rebalance or restore gut health and improve immune function.
Improve Your Digestion
Healthy bacteria are also needed to assist in digesting and absorbing certain carbohydrates, producing vitamins, absorbing minerals and helping protect the delicate lining of your gut. Ironically, when you don’t absorb vitamins and minerals, you get hungry for more food (the brain still senses the lack of these critical nutrients) so you tend to remain hungry and eat more than you should, which can lead to weight gain. Taking an effective probiotic like Primal Flora can help restore that balance and improve digestion. In other words, healthy gut bacteria can actually assist in weight loss.
Improve Your Regularity
Most people don’t realize that natural regularity depends on the prevalence of good bacteria in the gut. In fact, the average stool should consist primarily of water (75%) and bacteria (both dead and living - both healthy and unhealthy). Very little of a healthy stool should ever be undigested food remnants. That would be an indication that either you are eating the wrong foods or that your intestines are not digesting and/or absorbing nutrients efficiently. Sure, you can make yourself poop every day by taking a laxative or even using so-called healthy indigestible fibers, but that sort of “fake regularity” can cause more harm than good. Taking Primal Flora can assist in creating a healthy bacterial balance that promotes the appropriate bacterial turnover and restores healthy regularity.
Yogurt or Acidophilus Just Can't Do It
Many people think taking yogurt or kefir is adequate to restock probiotics in the gut. However, because of the stringent laws involved in bringing processed milk products to market, many of the most popular brands of yogurt have very little actual live culture remaining by the time you ingest them. Moreoever, many people are simply lactose intolerant. Primal Flora starts with 30 billion CFU (individual living colony-forming units) in each capsule and guarantees that at least 18 billion will remain at time of expiration. Primal Flora is more than 25 times as potent as an average serving of yogurt – and Primal Flora has none of the calories, the lactose or other sugars.
Acid and Bile Resistant Strains
Many common probiotic blends can’t survive the acidic environment of the stomach. That’s why some companies use “enteric coatings” or special treatments to keep them inside a waxy ball until after they’ve passed the stomach. Perhaps you’ve heard that some probiotics also need to be refrigerated in order to remain “live.” In both cases, the main issue is that the strains they’ve chosen are not particularly hardy strains to begin with. Prima Flora uses acid- and bile-resistant strains that survive through stomach acid and need not be refrigerated (although you CAN store them in a refrigerator). These strains have been isolated over years of research to resist digestion and more effectively repopulate intestinal flora.
