LiviaOne Daily Probiotics: A Review

Posted by HEATHER JAMES - ENDURANCE ATHLETE

Initially, I was relatively skeptical of probiotics and the actual effect that they could have on my health and energy. Therefore, when I was contacted about reviewing the LiviaOne Daily Probiotic I was not sure what to expect. Having used the probiotic for around 3 weeks, I can definitely say that they have had some beneficial effects. Myself and one other were using the daily probiotic and the enzymes and probiotics powder throughout this process. The results were impressive, with a noticeable increase in energy levels in addition to an improvement in recovery times after training sessions. Having expected a...

Poor digestion is a huge factor in today's world when it comes to unhealthy lifestyles. Poor digestion can negatively impact your quality of life. Unfortunately, most people do not understand the connection of your digestive tract and your immune system. Research shows that 80% of your immune system is located in your gut. If you have a bad gut, you most likely have just as bad of an immune system. When your digestion suffers, so does your overall health! Having a poor digestive tract can make it difficult to absorb nutrients from the food we consume, extract essential nutrients, and...

Are you a high-performance athlete?

Posted by LIVIA STAFF

It's no secret what digestive problems elite, high performance athletes experience such as bloating, nausea, vomiting, cramps, diarrhea, ulcers, leaky gut, and many more. These issues are due to changes in blood flow because the increased demand from muscles and the heart, which in turn reduces the blood in the intestines. Less blood in your gut means that the permeability of the intestine is affected and this can increase an athlete's susceptibility to infectious. Exercise can restrain the body's immune response and large quantities of protein can cause gastrointestinal distress. Experts say that gastrointestinal distress can often be improved by...

Soil Probiotic

Posted by REPRINTED BY PERMISSION FROM PROBIOTIC.ORG

Introduction Soil probiotics are commonly known as soil-based organisms (SBOs). SBOs are referred to a probiotics because they are beneficial bacteria that live in the soil. "Until the 19th century, when food processing replaced hand-to-mouth ingestion of raw fruit and vegetables, [SBOs] formed a regular part of our diet."(1) Soil-based organisms are considered "friendly" non-resident or transient microorganisms. "Transient microorganisms are different from resident microorganisms in that they do not take up permanent residence in the gastrointestinal tract. Instead, they establish small colonies for brief periods of time before dying off or being flushed from the intestinal system via normal...

Safety of Probiotic Products

Posted by REPRINTED BY PERMISSION FROM PROBIOTIC.ORG

Reports of adverse reactions to probiotics in healthy adults are relatively rare. Because many countries consider them to be a food or food supplement, guidelines for use are different than those for drugs. The fact that probiotics have been allowed by many countries to be added to food products already attests to their lack of harmful attributes. Although significant debates are raised in defining the basis of "therapeutic claims," many food companies are permitted to make physiological claims about the benefits of probiotics, their safety, and their harmlessness to the user when eaten or ingested. The issue of infant formula...

Probiotic Territorial Colonization

Posted by CASEY ADAMS, PHD - REPRINTED BY PERMISSION FROM PROBIOTIC.ORG

Some of our resident probiotics live peacefully together. Most, however, struggle with other colonies, and mark clearly defined territories with special biochemical secretions. Probiotics within the same colony usually specialize in particular functions. Some work together to help break down foods, and some guard and protect their territory as they consume metabolites. To protect against pathogens, many probiotics produce a number of natural antibiotics XE "antibiotics" designed to reduce the populations of competitors. At the same time, some of their antibiotic secretions aid the body's immune system by stimulating T-cell XE "T-cell" and B-cell XE "B-cells" XE "B-cells" activity. Many...

Intestinal Flora

Posted by REPRINTED BY PERMISSION FROM PROBIOTIC.ORG

Introduction Intestinal flora are harmless microorganisms such as bacteria, yeasts, and fungi that inhabit and grow in the intestines. These microorganisms are essential to the normal functioning of the digestive tract, and certain species of intestinal flora are beneficial to the human body. These "good" bacteria often have a symbiotic relationship with the human body as both derive benefit from one another. For example, "The normal [intestinal] flora derive from their host a steady supply of nutrients, a stable environment, and protection and transport. The host obtains from the normal [intestinal] flora certain nutritional and digestive benefits, stimulation of the...

Intestinal Bacteria

Posted by REPRINTED BY PERMISSION FROM PROBIOTIC.ORG

Introduction Billions of bacteria inhabit the intestines, and this intestinal bacteria can be beneficial to the human body in a variety of ways. For example, bacteria aids in digestion by synthesizing vitamins, converting dietary fiber, and degrading dietary toxins. Bacteria also help stimulate the development of the body's immune system. The relationship between good and bad intestinal bacteria is essential to one's health. This is because "inside [the] small and large intestines there are 400 to 500 different species of bacteria that live in synergy, as long as the good bacteria outweigh the bad bacteria. If the balance gets upset...

Friendly Bacteria

Posted by REPRINTED BY PERMISSION FROM PROBIOTIC.ORG

The concept of a symbiotic organism living within our digestive tract seems strange at first. However, when we explore the beneficial functions performed by the intestinal microflora, such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria, there are many reasons to encourage and protect this symbiosis. Not all bacteria are helpful, and many are considered pathogens that create illness in the host by attaching to the walls of the internal organs and overpopulating in that environment. E coli, staph, and some forms of streptococcus are examples of bacteria which can exploit the human immune system when they overpopulate, causing a variety of diseases and...

Probiotics for Children

Posted by REPRINTED BY PERMISSION FROM PROBIOTIC.ORG

Some probiotics appear to be safe and appropriate for children, if adequate caution is used in administration. The introduction of genetic changes to various probiotic species has caused difficulty in keeping the safer strains separated from lesser-known strains, at least in terms of a public image. Although particular laboratories may work hard to promote their own synthetic probiotic strains, or "symbiotics," it is unknown how humans will react to some of the less familiar probiotic and prebiotic products. However, with regard to children's health, there are some major success stories concerning specific probiotic strains that have met the standard of...

Probiotics for Dogs

Posted by REPRINTED BY PERMISSION FROM PROBIOTIC.ORG

Pets are a vital part of life and family. There is no better sight after a long day at work than a dog at the door. Dogs protect, comfort, and add joy to life. Studies have shown they improve human health and increase longevity. As humans learn of ways to improve their own health, shouldn't our pets benefit as well? Fortunately, there are a growing number of products available for our pets, and probiotic supplements are among the best. Probiotic supplements offer a wide range of health benefits for dogs and other pets, just as they do for humans. Anyone...

Probiotics Side Effects

Posted by REPRINTED BY PERMISSION FROM PROBIOTIC.ORG

Problems, side effects, and unsubstantiated claims are possible with any medicine or food product, including probiotics. In that a probiotic is an actual organism, it carries some unpredictability in terms of how it will react to the existing or indigenous microbiotica located in the subject's GI tract. Because probiotic supplements have significant components that may not survive the transit through the gastric system, they carry the potential of having no effect at all. The expense of purchasing the product must be considered carefully, if it delivers minimal value to the user. Since brand quality varies significantly among probiotic producers, buyers...
