Why probiotics are vital to our health

Our society has developed into an antibiotic culture so intent on destroying bacteria — we often expect a prescription to cure even a minor infection — that in the process of destroying harmful bacteria, we’ve also eradicated much of the beneficial bacteria in our bodies.

Our gastrointestinal tract contains hundreds of different species of beneficial bacteria (intestinal flora). To provide a healthy environment, our body requires proper amounts of these friendly bacteria. Probiotics are the key to helping our body maintain proper levels of friendly bacteria because they colonize the intestinal tract and crowd out disease-causing bacteria, viruses, and yeasts.

Probiotics are living, direct-fed microbials that promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in the intestines. They come in two types: food (such as yogurt, kefir, or raw sauerkraut) and dietary supplements, such as Truehope GreenBAC.

Truehope GreenBAC is a rich blend of the 8 bacteria our digestive tract needs most. Each capsule contains billions of the following bacteria:

  • Lactobacillus rhamnosus A & B
  • L. bulgaricus
  • Bifidobacterium longum

  • Streptococcus thermopilus
