Probiotic 3 from AOR Support & Benefits

A Clinically Tested ProBIOTIC 3

Although associated with spoiled food and infections, not all bacteria are harmful. As humans, we carry more bacterial cells than human cells. Most of these bacteria are found in our gastrointestinal tract where billions of bacteria reside in a delicate equilibrium that is essential to our health. This mutually beneficial relationship between enterobacteria and the human body is important for the maturation of the immune system, for a normal inflammatory response and for a healthy gastrointestinal tract. The intestinal flora is also essential for digestion and produces several important nutrients from otherwise indigestible foodstuffs.

Furthermore, healthy gut bacteria act as a barrier by preventing the attachment of harmful bacteria to the intestinal mucosa. Disturbances in this delicate gastrointestinal microflora increase the susceptibility to pathogens and raise the risk of infection and disease.

Probiotic help to reestablish and support a normal bacterial microflora in the intestines. ProBIOTIC 3 is a probiotic formula that has been used clinically for more than 50 years in Japan.

ProBIOTIC 3 contains three bacterial species with specific health promoting attributes:

Streptococcus faecalis
S. faecalis is a natural resident of the human gastrointestinal tract that produces lactic acid as a byproduct of carbohydrate fermentation. Lactic acid reduces the gastrointestinal pH thus preventing the growth of harmful bacteria.

Clostridium butyricum
C. butyricum is also a natural resident of the human gastrointestinal tract and breaks down dietary fiber into several beneficial nutrients one of which is butyric acid. Butyric acid is an important source of nourishment for the colonocytes (the cells of the lower gastrointestinal tract) and reduces inflammation and intestinal permeability.

Bacillus mesentericus
B. mesentericus was added to ProBIOTIC 3 to support the growth of S. faecalis and C. butyricum as well as the growth of several strains of the beneficial bifidobacterium species.

The bacterial strains found in ProBIOTIC 3 promote the growth of beneficial intestinal microflora, inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, and increase the production of beneficial nutrients. ProBIOTIC 3 is a room-stable formula that contains bacteria shown to survive the acidity of the stomach.

Probiotics

Probiotics, or friendly bacteria, are the beneficial microbial flora we all need for optimal digestive and colon health. We all have them – the first probiotics being given to us during the process of breast feeding from our mothers, with our need for them never waning throughout our entire lives. Without health gut flora, poor assimilation of nutrients, intestinal irritation or constipation can result. But, their effects go beyond those commonly associated with digestion.
Both naturopathic and medical doctors are recognizing the importance gut flora plays for overall health. Many normal, bodily functions require healthy gut flora, ranging from immune function to heart health. Certain strains of the Lactobacillus type have been shown to be crucial for producing important immune factors which the body cannot produce without them, while others have been shown to be crucial for the reduction of bad cholesterol.

The Types of Friendly Bacteria
In general, probiotics can be categorized by where they are used by the body. For example, there are friendly bacteria which are used only in the small intestine and those that proliferate only in the large intestine, or colon. But, believe it or not, beneficial bacteria exist in the mouth, urinary tract, stomach, and even on the surface of the skin.

What to Look For in a Probiotic
There are literally thousands of probiotic supplements available in health food stores today; with so many available it can be difficult to know which one is best for you or your family. A multi-strain probiotic is frequently the best way to go for most people. This type of probiotic can be considered the “multivitamin” of the probiotic category of supplements as they will usually supply you with at least 6, 8 or even as many as 10 or 20 different strains of healthy bacteria. Naturally in your body you have many, so it makes sense to take a supplement with as broad a spectrum as possible as this will give you the greatest coverage to replenish or maintain the natural gut flora.

That said, there are certain types of therapeutic probiotics which more specifically address certain health concerns. Saccharomyces boulardii is one that is particularly useful for those who have had chronic intestinal flushing from c. difficile infection or even from food poisoning. The homeostatic soil organism type of probiotic (such as the popular brand Primal Defense) contains healthy bacteria from soils. In years past we would have ingested these from root vegetables grown in the ground, but in our modern sanitized world where we purchase cleaned vegetables from supermarkets, it’s difficult for us to get it from food unless we’re growing them ourselves. This particular type of beneficial bacteria has been clinically proven to fight candida well.

5 out of 5 stars Probiotic 3 by AOR is incredible
by Nick from Toronto on 1/10/2013
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
Probiotic 3 by AOR is incredible! I don't have any major problems with my gut, but I did have excessive gas. After taking this for about a week, I noticed that my gas subsided to about 10% of what it used to be. Not only that, my skin cleared up completely! And I didn't even know that Probiotic 3 would do that! I also started to see, after about a month, that I started to gain weight. I work out A LOT and have a really hard time gaining weight; but when I started to take AOR, my weight started to creep up slowly - I started to gain lean muscle! I don't take AOR's Probiotic 3 every day now. Instead, I take it every other day, or even every third day and it seems to keep maintaining, so to speak, the level of my health. I used to think that eating yogurt and drinking kefir would be enough, but this stuff simply trumps everything. Simply incredible!

5 out of 5 stars Helps to prevent C Diff infections!
by PattiB from Bloomsburg, Pa on 24/4/2012
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
If i could give this product more than 5 stars I would. in 1992, I came down with my first cdiff infection, brought on by antibiotic use. That initial infection plagued me for 6 years. After that, each time I would be prescribed an antibiotic I would get cdiff. About 5 years ago, I discovered AOR probiotics. Now, each time I am given an rx for an antibiotic, I take this probiotic(it was formerly called Clinical Biotics, same strains)and I DONT GET CDIFF ANYMORE!!! It is like a miracle for me. I am so thankful for this product!!!
