discovered pasteurization, the method of heating milk to kill
harmful bacteria. Years later at the pasteurization institute,
Elie Metchnikoff researched and discovered the health-promoting
capabilities of lactobacillus bacteria when he observed that
people who ate yogurt tended to live longer. More than 400
different kinds of bacteria live in our gastrointestinal tract.
The body depends on beneficial bacteria to manufacture B
vitamins as well as to produce lactase and other antibacterial
substances. 60 to 70 MILLION AMERICANS SUFFER FROM DIGESTIVE
DISEASES (According to the National Digestive Disease
information clearinghouse in Bethesda, MD.) Commercial food
processing procedures often destroy viable beneficial organisms,
making it difficult for the body to maintain good intestinal
flora. Even the majority of yogurt products no longer contain a
viable acidophilus culture. Preservatives, additives, high-fat
diets, alcohol, birth control pills, and stress can all result
in poor intestinal flora. Antibiotic drugs are especially
damaging to intestinal flora and kill all kinds of bacteria,
both good and bad. The effects of antibiotic use on intestinal
flora can last for weeks even after the drug is discontinued;
often leading to yeast overgrowth, chronic infections, poor
digestion, fatigue or allergies. Acidophilus supplements can
reintroduce beneficial bacteria into the system. Important
benefits of acidophilus supplementation can include: Keeping
constipation and diarrhea under control. Counteracting lactose
intolerance by its association with lactase. Reduction of bad
breath. Reduction of internal gas. Cholesterol control by
promoting normal absorption of dietary fats. Suppression of
candida yeast. Suppression of a number of intestinal
disorders. Prevention of intestinal contamination from
infectious organisms common in some foreign countries.
