Probiotic lactobacilli: an innovative tool to correct the malabsorption syndrome of vegetarians? From the Department of Internal Medicine, San Camillo Hospital, Rome, Italy and published in: Med Hypotheses. 2005;65(6):1132-5. Epub 2005 Aug 10
Among the reported beneficial effects of probiotics from these papers are:
● Normalization of the intestinal microflora and intestinal function including nutrient absorption
● Ability to block the invasion of potential pathogens in the gut
● Prophylactic or therapeutic treatment for several types of diarrhea
● Relief of symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease
● Amelioration of lactose intolerance
● Modulation of immune function
● Inhibition of Helicobacter pylori
● Possible enhancement of mineral / calcium absorption
● Furthermore, it is known that probiotics promote intestinal synthesis of B-vitamins that are absorbed by the host.
Mechanisms for the reported beneficial effects of probiotics have been proposed, but none has been proven and no disease prevention or therapeutic claim for probiotics is being made – or is even legally allowed. Please consult with your local health care professional to determine if probiotics can be of value in your personal health program.
Gut Buddies® probiotics provide support to a body stressed by infection (including infections of the uro-genital tract), poor eating habits, and other challenges to the immune system. Gut Buddies® Probiotic supplements replenish the microflora of the oral cavity, skin, and intestinal mucosa. Gut Buddies® Probiotics help prevent and alleviate dysbacteriosis and school-related illnesses in children. They also help prevent and alleviate traveler's diarrhea, occasional irregularity, and other gastro-intestinal disturbances, all the while stimulating the immune system.
Gut Buddies® probiotics assist the immune system in numerous ways, including:
Modulating the immune system, increasing the production of antibodies, and mobilizing macrophages, lymphocytes, and other cells of the immune response system
Increasing mucin production in the intestine, and thereby increasing the innate immune response
Inhibiting pathogenic organisms in the uro-genital tract and the intestine by competing for nutrients and creating a barrier which stops pathogens from adhering to epithelial cells
Producing antibacterial substances, such as bacteriocins Lowering intestinal pH by the production of lactic acid, creating an environment unsuitable for pathogens
Suppressing the activity of toxic and carcinogenic amine-producing enzymes associated with other intestinal flora
