Highfield Probiotic – Dairy Free
Information: Containing 8 billion live microorganisms per capsule, this kosher certified and dairy-free probiotic has been carefully designed to restore optimum function to the digestive system and maintain overall health.
Probiotics are beneficial microorganisms that are a natural and necessary component of the digestive system. Maintaining the correct balance of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ bacteria is essential for healthy digestion, vitamin absorption and immune defence. Easily destroyed by antibiotics and poor diet, this causes myriads of common systems such as:
- Acid reflux
- Compromised immune and digestive systems
Environmental influences, medication, poor diet, lack of sleep, emotional stress and even natural ageing can all shift the balance in favour of bad and toxic bacteria.
Probiotics, when in balance, act in a mutually beneficial relationship with the digestive system. They limit the amount of harmful bacteria present; eliminate toxins, other chemicals and waste products. Basically keeping our bodies free of disease-causing nasties! Significantly, this relationship between probiotics and our digestive system ensures efficient absorption and sorting of essential nutrients and other important substances so that they can be delivered to cells where they are needed, resulting in optimum cellular health.
Imbalances allow harmful yeast cultures like Candida to develop, causing a multitude of health problems, making the body susceptible to food sensitivities and intolerances. Problems such as:
- Joint pain
- Urinary and vaginal tract infections
- Skin conditions
- Recurring bronchial and sinus infections
are all candida-related symptoms. Taking probiotics would replenish healthy flora in the intestines, eventually removing cultures of Candida or other harmful pathogens so that a balance is established to promote the body’s natural healing processes.
Probiotics have been proven to be especially beneficial to people with urinary tract infections by maintaining a population of healthy bacteria. Another way probiotics act as an essential part of our overall health is the impact they have on our immune system. Our immune system is our guard against all the damaging pathogens that could cause disease in our bodies. When it doesn’t function properly we become susceptible to a huge range of conditions. Recently the tremendous influence the digestive system has on the immune system has been increasingly recognised. Nearly 80% of the human immune system is present in the gut! An impaired immune system is the source of many chronic degenerative diseases and inflammatory conditions that especially contribute to many age-related disorders such as metabolic problems, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
Replenishing the balance of probiotics is essential for anyone suffering from food sensitivities and any symptoms of an impaired digestive system. Taking probiotics is one step towards a healthier internal wellbeing; of the immune system and all related functions.
