Ultimate FloraMax 50 Billion – What are probiotics? Probiotics are the beneficial bacteria that live in the digestive tract of every person. Of the trillions of microorganisms residing in the small and large intestine, there are over 500 different species. Several well-known probiotic organisms are Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium.
Many probiotic supplements are formulated to contain Lactobacillus and small amounts of Bifidobacteria. Yet Bifidobacterium is the most prevalent probiotic in a healthy colon. Bifidobacteria ferments dietary fiber and produces by-products, such as B vitamins, that promote the health of the entire body. Ultimate FloraMax 50 Billion provides a higher ratio of Bifidobacteria to Lactobacillus (more similar to the ratio found in the human digestive tract).
What are the Benefits of Probiotics? The name probiotic, which means “for life,” describes the benefit these friendly bacteria provide to the human body. Probiotics play a role in: aiding digestion, enhancing immunity, assisting vitamin manufacture, supporting detoxification, and promoting a healthy colon.
Why Supplement with Probiotics? Many dietary and lifestyle factors contribute to the decline of probiotic numbers and thereby lead to an increase in harmful bacteria. Such factors include: antibiotic use, age, a low fiber diet, a diet with excess processed/high sugar foods, and candida overgrowth.

Your digestive tract depends on the presence of beneficial bacterial called probiotics to function at its best and keep out harmul bacteria that would otherwise make you sick. According to Russian Medzhitov, MD, of the Yale Medical School, probiotics metabolize nutrients to enable us to absorb them more readily. Probiotics aid in the early development of the gastrointestinal system, and produce factors that prevent colonization by pathogenic bacteria. For instance in a laboratory study at Yale, (Cell, 7/23/04), researchers found that supplements of probiotics can help the intestines mend themselves and lower the risk of damage from infection. In doing so, researchers found that probiotics stimulate repair mechanisms in the epithelial cells that line the digestive tract.
