List of Good Bacteria

For healthy digestion and regularity you want to have an abundance of good bacteria in your lower bowels and intestines. Good bacteria help balance the bad bacteria that we’re exposed to every day.

One way to get good bacteria, or probiotics, into your gut is to eat fermented foods like sauerkraut and yogurt. But unfortunately, the fermented foods commonly found in most grocery stores contain little, or no, good bacteria. To get good bacteria you could make your own yogurt and sauerkraut. Or, a far easier way to get these good bacteria is in a probiotics supplement.

Lactobacillus Acidophilus Probiotic

L. acidophilus is a strain of good bacteria that flourishes in your small intestine, attaching to the walls of your intestines. Lactobacillus acidophilus sets up a protective fortress of good bacteria, helping to block less desirable organisms from entering your bloodstream.

In studies, L. acidophilus has done an excellent job of populating the gut with good bacteria. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, participants taking L. acidophilus experienced significantly more relief from gastrointestinal discomfort than those who were taking the placebo.  Scientists have also found that supplementing with L. acidophilus and B. bifidum helps to modulate the response of your intestinal bacteria to the effects of antibiotics. Again, those good bacteria come to the rescue.

L. acidophilus benefits go beyond digestion. These good bacteria also help with regularity. In fact, researchers analyzed double-blind human trials and found that good bacteria strains—including Lactobacillus acidophilus—help to alleviate occasional diarrhea.

But the benefits of L. acidophilus don’t end there. Research suggests the good bacteria L. acidophilus helps to support immune system activity. In fact, both the L. acidophilus, and the B. bifidum, were found to increase immune markers. Plus, the L. acidophilus good bacteria help to ensure proper nutrient absorption, and may support vaginal health.

B. lactis Probiotic

What is B. lactis? Like L. acidophilusB. lactis is a strain of good bacteria found in the intestines. Researchers have found that it helps to promote gut health by decreasing the H. pylori strain of bacteria. So, B. lactis helps the good bacteria win out over the bad.

In a study, researchers found that consuming the good bacteria B. lactis daily for three weeks increased the number of activated T lymphocytes, as well as natural killer cells. In this way, the good bacteria B. lactis is helping to support immune health.

Plus, there’s more supporting research on the immune benefits of B. lactis. A randomized, double-blind study found that it supports both immune and cellular health. What researchers found is that people taking B. lactis had an increase in both immune markers, and natural killer cells that help to eliminate unwanted cells from your body. 

But as powerful as these good bacteria are, taking a probiotics supplement with just L. acidophilus and B. lactis isn’t enough.

Actazin Probiotic

Actazin strengthens the L. acidophilusB. lactis, and other strains of good bacteria.

That’s because Actazin contains prebiotics that “feed” L. acidophilusB. lactis, and other good bacteria—making all of these good bacteria stronger. What’s also unique is that the prebiotics in Actazin feed only the good bacteria—unlike ordinary prebiotics that feed both bad and good bacteria in your gut.

But Actazin does more than feed the good bacteria. It also contains enzymes that break down hard-to-digest foods, improving your digestion. Plus, it contains insoluble fiber that strengthens and fortifies Lactobacillus acidophilusB. lactis, and all of the other good bacteria, so they work more effectively.

Probiotic Advantage Extra Strength Contains L. acidophilusB. lactis and Actazin

There’s no question that L. acidophilus and B. lactis are a strong team of good bacteria. But when you combine them with other good bacteria, you get even stronger support.

Dr. Williams’  Probiotic Advantage Extra Strength formula gives you all of what you want to look for in a probiotics supplement. It includes Lactobacillus acidophilus which helps to form colonies of good bacteria on your intestinal wall. These good bacteria create a “fortress” that helps to keep unwanted organisms out of your gut and supports proper immune function. Plus, these L. acidophilus help to reduce occasional diarrhea, enhance your immune defenses, and support vaginal health.

Probiotic Advantage Extra Strength also gives you the B. lactis good bacteria which help to decrease H. pylori, one of the “bad guy” bacteria that cause a good deal of trouble in your gut. B. lactis good bacteria also help with the production of natural killer cells for immune health—once again strengthening the good guys.

In Probiotic Advantage Extra Strength, Dr. Williams also included Actazin from the New Zealand green kiwi. Plus, Dr. Williams included eight more strains of good bacteria—in addition to L. acidophilus and B. lactis—that help to support your digestion, regularity, immune health, and more.

List of Good Bacteria

If you’ve tried yogurt or other probiotics to get good bacteria, and have been discouraged by the results, give Probiotic Advantage Extra Strength a try. Other probiotics may give you a few good bacteria. But with the combination of L. acidophilusB. lactis, eight other good bacteria, Probiotic Advantage Extra Strength covers all bases.

What’s also important is that Actazin is feeding and strengthening all of those good bacteria. Plus, the controlled release formula ensures that L. acidophilusB. lactis, and all of the good bacteria reach your entire digestive tract. There’s no question that these good bacteria can make a dramatic difference in how you feel, and in the quality of your life.
