How to use Probiotics

Special Probiotic Blend can be taken with a small drink or in any other way as required. Keep it in the fridge and seal tightly between doses.

Do not take if pregnant - Always consult your doctor before changing any regimes when pregnant.

Using Probiotic Blend against infection and other problems

Overgrowth of pathogens in the gut can cause many problems. This is common after using antibiotics, where MRSA and Clostridium D. can run riot in the body causing severe problems. These problems are not limited to diarrhoea and vomiting.

At the first sign of symptoms, start taking two Probiotic Blend capsules every two to three hours until symptoms disappear. This also works well against food poisoning. Amounts taken can be reduced as symptoms abate, and things start to feel normal again. If septicaemia is suspected or confirmed, take Waterfall D-Mannose at or above normal treatment level and seek immediate medical help.

Using Probiotic Blend as a prophylactic

Two capsules every morning is normally enough to keep the gut regular, keep the immune system normal and protect against infection. These capsules support the immune system, meaning they will power-up an under active immune system, and normalise an over-active system.

Description

Probiotic means “promoting life” and it is generally accepted that using good quality probiotics restore symbiosis in the gut and are an essential part of regaining balance after illness or antibiotic therapy.

In fact, despite the value of antibiotics, one of the main problems associated with their use is that they kill off good bacteria along with bad bacteria.

This creates a deficiency of beneficial bacteria, and a state of dysbiosis. To leave the gut in a state of dysbiosis is to leave the body open to a full range of illnesses since it is generally accepted that a healthy gut is essential for total body health. Everything we eat passes through our intestines, and is processed by the bacteria in the gut for extraction of micronutrients, energy, protein, and soluble fibre. In the event of damaged gut bacteria, we do not get the best out of the food we consume, and can end up run down, tired all the time and open long term to illness.

Sweet Cures Special Probiotic Blend provides the friendly bacteria that power the immune system with an unbeatable blend of nine different natural gut bacteria in a freeze dried state that come back to life as soon as they are exposed to moisture and body temperature. Once activated, the friendly bacteria immediately begin their work of fighting pathogens, releasing enzymes that activate immune factors, and protecting the body from invaders from the outside world.

Benefits of taking good probiotics

  • Increases the bio-availability of macro and micro nutrients, including Vitamins B, K, lactase, calcium, and essential fatty acids;
  • Helps your body destroy viruses, fungi, pathogenic bacteria and parasites before they can do you damage;
  • Stimulates antibody production including B-Lymphocytes and encourages availability of antigens, alpha-interferon and other related immune factors, giving you powerful allies against infection;
  • Greatly assists in recovery from antibiotic use, restoring intestinal flora killed by antibiotics and restoring natural balance;
  • Dramatically increases the overall nutritional value of the food we eat by allowing much greater absorption:
  • Helps with both constipation and diarrhoea which are indicators of an imbalance in gut bacteria;
  • Coats the intestinal walls with friendly bacteria providing a barrier to the pathogens that cause ulcers and blood poisoning when pathogens are taken in with food;
  • Supports the production of lactoferrin, an iron-binding protein that helps us obtain iron from the foods we eat. Essential for healthy red blood cells.
  • Helps lower cholesterol naturally without drugs and their side effects.
  • Reduces the effect of allergies and related often serious conditions.
  • Sweetens the breath and improves the overall condition of the body.

Read the label carefully to be sure you are buying a product that contains LGG

Further Information & Component Species:

Two capsules of Special Probiotic Blend contain 30 Billion living gut bacteria, from nine different hardy species, with additional Oligofructan to support the multiplication of the friendly bacteria in your gut. All species in Probiotic Blend are non-GMO, because nature works best.

Lactobacillus acidophilus (decreases the incidence of certain diseases, including yeast infections in the upper digestive tract - especially those caused by Candida albicans, and by competing with pathogens, decreases the incidence of other gastrointestinal disorders.)

  • Lactobacillus plantarum (reported as reducing allergic reactions. Helps to mop up free radicals, and naturally produces hydrogen peroxide, which keeps down pathogenic bacteria and supports the gut especially for IBS.)
  • Lactobacillus casei (Known to improve digestion and reduce lactose intolerance. Has been shown to reduce flatulence and strengthens the effects of Lactobacillus acidophilus growth.)
  • Lactococcus lactis (Immune stimulation, improves digestive health, reduces antibiotic-associated diarrhoea. Produces enzymes that are essential for good digestion.
  • Lactobacillus rhamnosus (Inhibits the growth of most harmful bacteria in the intestine better than any other known probiotic, stimulates the production of antibodies in response to a viral infection, and enhances phagocytosis - which helps the body defeat pathogens and parasites. Can assist the natural production of beta-interferon, one of the body’s most powerful ways to fight disease and system imbalance.)
  • Bifidobacterium bifidum (Helps digestion, and is associated with a lower incidence of allergies, and assisting the development of a very powerful and balanced immune system.)
  • Bifidobacterium breve (B breve is like has a superior ability to break down many types of food, even plant fibres that are normally considered non-digestible. The enzymes produced by B breve are essential to good gut health.)
  • Bifidobacterium lactis (A very hardy probiotic species that stays active for a long time and out competes pathogenic bacteria for resources. This can rapidly reduce pathogens, especially in cases where antibiotics have left pathogenic bacteria in control.)
  • Streptococcus thermophilus (Stimulates disease-fighting cells. The bacteria also appears to reduce the amount of nitrites - known to cause cancer in the body.)

Safety

Always consult a doctor if you have a health problem or are considering taking any supplement with prescription drugs.

Probiotic Blend FAQs

What Are Probiotics?

Probiotics are naturally occurring live bacteria that are available in certain foods—fermented vegetables, such as sauerkraut and live yogurt are examples that we all know of. The meaning of the word probiotic is “promoting life” and that suggests that they have a very important role in health indeed because probiotics help to populate your gut with good bacteria.

Is Bacteria bad me?

After decades of trying to kill bacteria with soap and antibiotics, we are coming to a greater understanding of the symbiotic relationship we have with bacteria in our bodies. While some make us sick, others play essential roles in digestion, human immunity and are even thought to produce chemicals that determine our moods. Around 100 trillion microorganisms and 500 different species live in every normal, healthy bowel. These microorganisms are not normally harmful. Quite the opposite in fact! Gut-dwelling bacteria keep pathogens (harmful microorganisms) in check and are essential to many digestive processes that enable us to absorb nutrients from food, and they are consequently at the very heart of immune function.

How do Probiotics Work?

When gut bacteria become out of balance, for whatever reason, it would appear humans become out of balance too. In fact, our gut is populated in a delicately and regularly evolving kaleidoscope of gut bacteria: there are good bacteria, bad bacteria, and VERY bad bacteria and the situation changes according to diet, antibiotic use etc. When we have an imbalance and the bad bacteria are winning, we are more likely to get sick and even depressed (Gut bacteria produce neurochemicals such as serotonin and dopamine that regulate basic psychological processes). Probiotics seek to redress gut imbalance. It is now believed that the human gut needs to be diversely populated with a range of competing microbial inhabitants for us to be fully healthy.

What are the benefits of probiotics?

Since the mid-1990s, clinical studies suggest that probiotic therapy, so replacing gut bacteria with probiotics, can help treat several gastrointestinal ills, delay the development of allergies in children, and may boost our overall health vis a vis chronic auto immune conditions.

Do probiotics help with lactose intolerance?

Two possible interventions for LI are the supplement of lactase (tablets) or the addition of probiotics.

Do probiotics help IBS?

A probiotic supplement by increasing the number of friendly bacteria in the large intestine is thought to reduce the symptoms of IBS in the following ways:

  • Reducing SIBO (bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine).
  • Opposing unfriendly bacteria
  • Reducing intestinal permeability (leaky gut)
  • Normalising digestive and faecal motility
  • Reducing pain from nerve receptors found in the intestinal lining

Are probiotics safe?

When people first start taking probiotic supplements, there’s a tendency to develop gas and bloating in the first few days. Apart from these temporary symptoms, probiotics are generally considered safe. Some people, however, should avoid probiotics either in foods or supplements, and they include people with weakened immune systems, or cancer patients Speak to you doctor about any concerns.

When do I need Probiotics?

If you are struggling with digestive issues like constipation, diarrhea, acid reflex, irritable bowel, or leaky gut, or you have had courses of antibiotics in the last 3-5 years you may need a probiotic supplement.

Can I source probiotics from food?

Yoghurt, Kefir and Sauerkraut are excellent sources. A low-glycemic, whole food diet that includes healthy proteins, fats and fibre, along with probiotics can improve the health of your gut significantly. Prebiotics are also highly useful non-digestible carbohydrates that provide food for friendly bacteria. Food sources include beans, garlic, onions and leeks. Xylotene from Sweet Cures acts as a prebiotic.

Will probiotics survive stomach acid and make it to the digestive tract?

Probiotics must survive in the acidic gastric environment if they are to reach the small intestine and colonize the host, thereby imparting their benefits. Lactobacillus species are considered intrinsically resistant to acid. Source - NCBI

When is the best time to take a probiotic?

The best time to take probiotics is alongside your meals. Right before or just after the meal is best for getting the most out of our probiotics. By taking your probiotic with food you provide a buffering system for the supplement and aid its safe passage through the digestive tract. Taking alongside a healthy meal provides the best chance of getting the most out of your probiotics.

What's the best storage method for probiotics?

In a cool, dark place or in the fridge.

Probiotics clear VRE

In a randomised controlled trial conducted by Manley et al, yoghurt containing the live bacterium Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG) cleared vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) (Probiotic treatment of vancomycin-resistant enterococci: a randomised controlled trial). Twenty-seven patients in the renal ward of Austin Health with positive rectal swabs for VRE were allocated at random to receive 100 g per day of either yoghurt containing LGG or standard pasteurised yoghurt. All 11 patients in the treatment group cleared VRE from their faeces by Week 3, compared with just one of the 12 controls. Eight controls then crossed over: all cleared VRE within 4 weeks.
