Beneficial soil and plant based microbes used to be ingested as part of food grown in rich, unpolluted soil. However, for the last 50 years we have been sterilizing our soil with pesticides and herbicides, destroying most bacteria both bad and good. Our modern lifestyle, which includes antibiotic drug use, chlorinated water, chemical ingestion, pollution and poor diet, is responsible for eradicating much of the beneficial bacteria in our bodies. A lack of beneficial microbes often results in poor intestinal and immune system health, contributing to a wide range of symptoms and illnesses. The following symptoms may result from a lack of probiotics:
Gas, Bloating and Indigestion
Diarrhea and/or Constipation
Bad Breath and Body Odor
Candida Yeast Infections
Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia
IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) Colitis
Skin problems such as Acne, Eczema and Psoriasis
Delayed development in children
High Cholesterol Levels
Frequent Colds and Flu
While many species of bacteria activate inflammation, it is when bacteria initiate chronic inflammation that cancer risk increases significantly. Changes in human diet affect our microbiota, and the answers are teasingly complex. We can’t think of the food we ingest without thinking of the gut bacteria that also ingest our food. One oft-cited example is the polyphenol family of chemicals, predominantly found in coffee, tea, wine, fruits, and vegetables, which have been linked to reducing the risk of cancer…Polyphenols are not digested and absorbed in the upper gastrointestinal tract, but they are readily metabolized in the colon by microbial enzymes.
Research into the anti-cancer polyphenol, ellagic acid, has shown that gut microbes metabolize ellagic acid into urolithins—compounds believed to be responsible for reducing inflammation and thereby protecting against cancer. These compounds downregulate key inflammatory mediators. But they don’t do so equally across all people. It depends on the individual mix of your flora. For instance, some studies show soy isoflavones can be protective against prostate cancer, while other studies do not show the protective effect. This is because the gut bacteria metabolize the soy into equol, a plant estrogen. But at most only half of human beings can actually do that, probably because of their native gut flora.
Although the link between gut microbes and cancer risk is becoming clearer, it will probably be years before dropping off a fecal sample at the doctor’s office will generate a report of your cancer risk and a list of foods you should or shouldn’t eat to modify that risk. Further experimentation is needed to understand the metabolic potential and function of the human microbiota.
Probiotics have been shown to directly influence brain neurochemistry. Scientists found that mice fed a strain of lactobacillus called rhamnosus JB-1 showed far fewer anxiety and depression-related behaviors than those fed with just broth. The lactobacillus strain also significantly lowered levels of a stress hormone, corticosterone. In fact, regular feeding with the lactobacillus strain actually altered the expression of receptors for the neurotransmitter GABA in the mouse brain.
"In the human gastrointestinal tract there are hundreds of microscopic life forms that live in a symbiotic relationship with one another. When the immune system breaks down, the body is left wide open for invasion of pathogenic organisms such as candida (yeast) and parasites. When taken on a daily basis, the HSO's set up a protective grid in the body and stimulate the immune system to ward off against all forms of bacteria, yeast, fungi and parasites. When HSO's colonize in the gastrointestinal tract here is simply no place for the pathogenic organisms to live. HSO's change the intestinal environment and can prevent the body from infestation of these dangerous organisms. Without HSO's, parasites and candida are free to wreak havoc in the digestive tracts of susceptible individuals.
Parasitic Infection (Parasites): Recent medical research suggests that 3 out of 5 Americans will be infected by parasites, at some point in their lives! Often going undetected, they live off of our bodies and reproduce rapidly. Parasites can rob the body of essential nutrients and can lead to serious illness or even death.
Candidiasis: Everyone has candida, a form of yeast that is normally found in the human digestive tract, the vagina, and on the skin. In healthy individuals with strong, functioning immune systems, it is harmless and kept in check by the beneficial bacteria occupying the same space. When the balance of intestinal bacteria is altered and the immune system becomes compromised, candida begins to proliferate, infecting organs and tissues of the boy. The candida becomes pathogenic, transforming from a simple benign yeast into an aggressive fungus that can severely compromise one's health."
Impervious to stomach acids and the digestive process, the microorganisms move through the stomach to the intestinal tract where they form colonies along the intestinal walls. HSOs multiply in the intestines and actually compete with harmful bacteria and yeasts for receptor sites, crowding out the pathogens and taking up residence. Once established, the organisms quickly begin producing the proper environment to absorb nutrients and help to re-establish the proper pH. According to early research and anecdotal evidence the following is a summary of the actions of HSOs.
HSOs work from the inside of the intestines dislodging accumulated decay on the walls and flushing out waste.
HSOs break down hydrocarbons, a unique ability to split food into its most basic elements allowing almost total absorption through the digestive system. This increases overall nutrition and enhances cellular development.
HSOs produce specific proteins that act as antigens, encouraging the immune system to produce huge pools of uncoded antibodies. This increased production of antibodies may significantly boost the body's ability to ward off diseases.
HSOs are very aggressive against pathological molds, yeasts, fungi, bacteria, parasites and viruses.
HSOs work in symbiosis with somatic (tissue or organ) cells to metabolize proteins and eliminate toxic waste.
HSOs stimulate the body to produce natural alpha-interferon. Alpha interferon is a potent immune system enhancer and a powerful inhibitor of viruses.
HSOs provide critical Lactoferrin supplementation. The microbes produce lactoferrin as a by-product of their metabolism. Lactoferrin is an iron binding protein essential for retrieving iron from foods.
