Subject: Curcumin and Grapeseed

Smoking, Chemical exposure, pesticides, nutrient deficiencies, to much sun exposure, and over the counter drugs and prescriptions can cause cancer. In the news, there are forever chemical roundup found in our water supply, it is no wonder we are laden with cancer as a society.

Fortunately, a healthy cancer preventing diet along with natural plant compounds can be far more effective and cost a lot less than conventional care alone.

Two top suggested natural medicines available right now are curcumin and grape seed extract. These two herbs are an amazing pair, curcumin is a fat soluble herb to fight oxidation on the fatty oil side in the body and grape seed extract is water soluble, making it a great antioxidant to fight oxidative stress on the water side of a cell. Cells in the body are made up of oil(fats) and water. The impact of both together on your health is virtually miraculous.

Curcumin neutralizes unstable free radicals that take electrons from nearby molecules, and stop them from creating a cascade of damaged cells. It also reduces inflammation reduces inflammation markers in the body to prevent prevent tissue degradation.

Curcumin has been shown to stop the changes that happen from free radical damage causing normal cells to become cancerous, and tumorous formations, and can even stop cancer from metastasizing or migrating to other parts of the body. Published studies anticancer activity have found that it can suppress breast, prostate, liver, skin, colon and lung cancer cells.

Curcumin Must Be Absorbed To Be Useful

One of the challenges or using curcumin for cancer prevention and treatment is that not all curcumin extracts are easily absorbable into the body. Blending curcumin in Turmeric essential oil enhances absorption and provides the additional benefits of ar-turmerone, a compound in the oil.

Curcumin Makes Chemo More Effective

There is big potential for curcumin when used with conventional treatment. BCM-95 curcumin, through research, has shown to sensitize human colon cancer cells to chemotherapy treatment where it would otherwise be resistant to this form of treatment. In some cases tumor recurrence rates can be as high as 60% but when treated with curcumin while under conventional treatment, curcumin boosted the effectiveness of the chemo drug 5-fluorouracil against cancer stem cells.

Curcumin has great potential in conjunction with conventional cancer treatment and recovery. It has been found that as chemo treatment progresses, cancer cells become resistant to the chemo treatment and the dosage has to be increased as the treatment continues increasing the toxic side effects. Fortunately, curcumin taken in conjunction with conventional cancer treatment can improve the effectiveness of chemo and so the dosage can be lowered reducing the toxic side effects for individuals. This is good news!

Curcumin Protects The Body During Cancer Treatment

In a clinical study with curcumin, it showed to alleviate side effects of one of the most common treatments of prostate cancer known as external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) where the doctor uses radiation to destroy tumorous cancel cells. This sort of therapy has many side effects making it a difficult therapy for most men. I often causes sexual dysfunction, digestive problems, urinary tract pain and loss of control. The higher the radiation dosage the more effective the treatment is but this causes significant discomfort, that is why most doctors lean towards lower dosages which makes the treatment less effective.

The clinical study administered 3000mg of BCM-95 curcumin that is 1000mg x 3 per day or a placebo one week before therapy started and during the treatment length. Each capsule of curcumin contained curcuminoids, curcumin, demethoxycurcumin, bisdemethoxycurcumin, and essential oil of turmeric, this is a full spectrum curcumin supplement.

At the end of the treatment which lasted 20 weeks the most dramatic difference between the two groups in the study was urinary symptoms. The curcumin group said a 50% decrease in symptoms or side effects of the radiation. Also, researchers noted that the curcumin did not reduce the efficacy of the EBRT.

Subject: Can aloe vera be used to treat sepsis?





Aloe vera can be used for plenty of skin conditions, but new evidence suggests it could be used for blood infections, because of the metabolites in the plant. A Chinese and Japanese study looked at this using mice, and found that aloe metabolites suppressed inflammation, due to reduced nitric oxide level. This is important because sepsis harms the body's own tissues and organs, and can be fatal. Aloe also has other uses, such as skin care, warding off cancer, treating digestive issues, and lowering blood sugar levels.

Key Takeaways:

  • Sepsis though not too common should be seen as a serious condition because it can lead to death or organ failure if the condition is not immediately treated.
  • A team of researchers from China and Japan sought out natural treatment for this disease and found out that aloe vera plant metabolites could be helpful.
  • The trials were conducted in both the laboratory and in animals and the team sought to find out how aloe vera metabolites has anti-inflammatory effects against sepsis.

"After using various tests to determine inflammation, the Chinese and Japanese research team found that aloe metabolites suppressed the expression of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) and mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs). Aloe metabolites also decreased the production of proinflammatory cytokines and nitric oxide."

L-theanine is an amino acid that scientists have recently found can decrease overall stress levels, as well as the heart rate, which can be beneficial for many individuals. Because l-theanine suppresses the sympathetic nervous system, it can have a positive affect on those faced with anxiety or stressful situations. Researchers have also found that l-theanine can decrease a person's immunoglobulin levels, which is helpful in supporting the immune system. L-theanine can also be used to control high blood pressure and to support good quality sleep.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers from Columbia University Irving Medical center stress the fact that stress is harmful to the body because it can increase the risk of certain health conditions.
  • The researchers stressed that stress management is important in every person’s life and this can be achieved by positive diet and lifestyle changes.
  • In a study where participants were given L-theanine, the researchers discovered that L-theanine helped reduce both stress levels and heart rate in those participants.

"During the course of the study, researchers increased the stress levels of 12 volunteers by instructing them to solve a mentally stressful task in four double-blind trials."

Our brains are the most important thing we could ever possess, so why not take something that helps naturally assist it’s function. Omega-3 is the main focus of this article and centers on new evidence found that an aging brain can be somewhat suppressed by consuming some good ole omega-3. It quickly touches on two specific studies and their findings concerning the size of one part of the brain. Additionally, it outlines a few extra benefits of the vitamin and the importance of striking a good bodily balance.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although aging cannot be stopped, but the best thing one can do for himself is to age in the healthiest manner possible.
  • It has been found by researchers in their studies that healthy brain aging can be promoted by consuming omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in the right proportion.
  • Because the brain is composed of different complex interconnected parts that age at different rates, some brain structures can deteriorate faster than others.

"The researchers found that people who had higher blood levels of certain omega-3 fatty acids – namely ecosatrienoic acid, stearidonic acid, and ALA – had a bigger frontoparietal cortex and therefore performed better on fluid intelligence tests."

If you haven’t yet heard, turmeric is the latest super herb that is as effective as at least 14 drugs and is safe to consume in food, as a tea, or in supplement form. A 2008 study in Drugs found that turmeric worked just as well as Lipitor in decreasing blood levels of cholesterol. Another study in Phytotherapy Research found turmeric to be as effective as steroids in the treatment of chronic inflammatory eye disease. Studies conducted over the past twenty years also show turmeric to be a promising alternative to aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, and tamoxifen for its anti-inflammatory and tumor suppressing properties.

Key Takeaways:

  • Curcuminoids from turmeric have been found to compare on equal terms with the pharmaceutical drug, Lipitor, which is used to treat endothelial dysfunction.
  • In the management of chronic anterior uveitis which is an inflammatory eye disease, curcumin from turmeric was found to be as effective as steroids.
  • Curcumin in turmin has also been found to be comparable in function to other steroids such as dexamethasone in protecting lung transplantation-associated injury.

Cannabis sativa, otherwise known as marijuana, has been used as a natural medicine for thousands of years, prior to the development of western civilization. However, with the introduction of synthetic pharmaceutical drugs, governments deemed marijuana as evil and dangerous. By the 1930s, the U.S., England, and Canada all outlawed marijuana. However, over the last twenty years, there has been an overwhelming amount of cannabis research out of Spain, Israel, and Brazil, uncovering the human body’s endocannabinoid system and identifying marijuana as the new powerhouse drug of this century.

Key Takeaways:

  • Cannabis sativa, one of the most misunderstood botanicals in modern times, has been used for time immemorial as a natural medicine source.
  • Cannabis was being used freely by people, can be obtained at pharmacies and one can grow his own until reefer madness starting manifesting and governments banned it.
  • In the war that the pharmaceutical industry has waged against natural medicine, cannabis was the first casualty, so states Dr. Jeffrey Dach on the history of cannabis.

"By making cannabis “illegal,” governments of the West paved the way for Big Pharma to take over and declare its poisons as the only safe and effective medicine out there – “medicine” that, in some cases, was derived and synthesized from the very same cannabis plant that, under Schedule I designation, was deemed to have no legitimate medical use."

Exactly 473 men and 475 women have been studied in order to see if high levels of vitamin C can help lower the risk of facing a premature death. Although several people did meet an early demise due to heart disease and other common ailments, it was shown that the individuals who were in the top 25 percentile when it comes to their vitamin C levels had a much lower risk in reaching an early death.

Key Takeaways:

  • A 16-year study of almost 1000 Chinese men and women found that those with the highest Vitamin C plasma concentrations were less likely to have died of any cause during the study.
  • Vitamin C’s benefits probably result from its ability to suppress oxidative stress and the resulting inflammation.
  • Kiwis, papayas, chili peppers, red bell peppers, mangos, kale and pineapple are all rich sources of Vitamin C.

Okra, a popular vegetable in the Southern U.S. and Middle East, is a powerful immune boosting food that can help your body resist disease and maintain overall good health. In fact, studies using okra pods have shown that compounds in the vegetable can increase white blood cell counts in the spleen and trigger the secretion of infection-fighting cytokines. These findings point to the need for more studies on the polysaccharides in this green vegetable as a possible immunomodulator.

Key Takeaways:

  • Okra is a valuable culinary additive, as it is prevalent in both Middle Eastern and U.S. Southern cuisine.
  • A dampening of the immune system, or immunosuppression can occur with the taking of various pharmaceuticals.
  • It's purported that okra is a source of natural immunomodulators that can boost and restore human immune levels.

"Based on these findings, the polysaccharides in okra should be investigated for future use as natural immunomodulators."

Furthermore, moringa seeds can help decrease one’s risk of developing breast, colon, and liver cancers by suppressing the spread of cancer cells.

Key Takeaways:

  • Many bitter foods like Moringa, dark leafy vegetables, bitter gourds, and dark chocolate, have proven themselves to be superfoods. But of them all, Moringa is the least popular.
  • Moringa in fact is termed a “miracle tree” due to the fact that all of its parts including the leaves, pods, and seeds, have health benefits.
  • Originally from India and now spread to Asia and Africa, the plant can be used for biodiesel production, manufacturing of beauty products, and water filtration.

Dealing with chronic inflammation can lead to many troublesome symptoms such as joint stiffness and joint pain. Many natural herbs such as green tea and chili pepper have the ability to reduce inflammation, helping patients avoid these life-impacting symptoms. Green tea has been shown to not only help those suffering from arthritic pain, but it can also reduce the inflammation in the digestive tracts in those suffering from ulcerative colitis or Crohn's Disease. Chili peppers actually contain something called capsaicin which has been shown to reduce inflammation on its own.

Key Takeaways:

  • Green tea has been well researched and found to be effective against heart disease and cancer. It is also found effective against inflammation of the digestive tract.
  • Chilli pepper contains capsaicin which makes the pepper hot and also this compound has an anti-inflammatory effect in the human body.
  • Piperine is a compound in black pepper that gives it the distinctive flavor. This compound has been found to prevent cancer and suppress the perception of pain.

"Recent studies have shown that green tea can effectively treat inflammation, especially in the treatment of arthritis."

Subject: Study finds that a combination of L-carnitine and vitamin E canovercome immunosuppression





A study has shown that L-carnitine and vitamin E taken together can boost the immune system in response to the immunosuppressing toxin ochratoxin A. The study was conducted with four groups of birds: one that was given the toxin and vitamin E, one given the toxin and L-carnitine, one given the toxin and both supplements, and one given only the toxin. Of the four, the one given both supplements together showed the most resistance to the effects of the toxin, indicating that the combination of the supplements aided the immune system.

Key Takeaways:

  • Ochratoxin A is a toxin created by a fungus that can wreak havoc on the human body by causing suppression of the body's immune system, or immunosuppression.
  • The fungus-based toxin was used in a study that made use of leghorn cockeral chicks as subjects.
  • Although all of the birds received the toxin, some also received doses of vitamin E, L-carnitine, or a combination of both.

"L-carnitine and vitamin E can improve the immune system, according to a study."

Is CBD Oil The Supplement That Your Workout Is Missing?

Although hard evidence about the effects of cannabinoids like CBD is difficult to come by, our growing understanding of the body's natural endocannabinoid systems suggest that there is at least the potential for benefits from CBD for athletic performance. CBD, for example, may help boost the endocannabinoid system's suppression of pain and inflammation. However, it is also important to note that THC, the psychoactive ingredient in whole marijuana, appears to decrease long-range endurance. More research is sorely needed to understand just how CBD and other cannabinoid compounds impact athletic performance.

Key Takeaways:

  • A component called endocannabinoids is found in CBD oil which can help regulate brain function.
  • CBD oil is a more viable option for athletics as THC can really hinder levels of endurance.
  • CBD oil has not been proven to change a person's heart rate or blood pressure during physical activity yet.

"Despite anecdotal evidence that CBD oil might help with athletic performance and recovery, there actually haven't been any clinical trials examining those effects, says Brook Henry, PhD, an assistant research scientist at the University of California, San Diego's Center for Medical Cannabis Research and department of psychiatry."

Chronic low-grade inflammation is something that we can experience but many of us don't think about. It is a condition where when our immune system detects a threat in our bodies and substances are released. When they are released and the condition is not cured the substances remain elevated and we then can get chronic inflammation. This can lead to an array of conditions including: cancer, depression, and bone disease, and many more. There are many symptoms of chronic low-grade inflammation and also a holistic way to treat it with functional medicine. Holistically, we can treat by finding the cause and treating that rather than suppressing the symptoms of conventional medicine.

Key Takeaways:

  • Chronic inflammation is the key holder to heart disease, diabetes and obesity just to name a few.
  • Chronic low-grade inflammation also is the culprit to lack of exercise, fibromyalgia and anger problems
  • Chronic low-grade inflammation is nothing to speak little about, and needs to be more in the public eye, maybe soon PSAs.

Subject: Could CBD oil be used for bone disorders ?





Cannabidiol oil, or CBD oil, has the potential for use as a treatment of osteoarthritis, inflammatory joint pain, and other related joint pains. CBD is valuable in this regard because it has the potential to, by attaching to CBD1 and CBD2 receptors present in the joints of mammals, reduce the inflammation and pain that patients experience. However, there is still a need for more research. CBD is confirmed to have the potential to solve the issues of pain and inflammation suffered by those with OA, and possibly even prevent OA from developing at all, but as of yet there has been no testing of CBD as a treatment for OA and joint pain.

Key Takeaways:

  • Joint synovitis may be caused by inflammation, and over time NSAIDs can cause other health problems.
  • Cannabinoids were shown in studies to regulate arthritis and joint disease in humans and animals.
  • Findings demonstrate that CBD may relieve joint inflammation which can cause pain.

"In musculoskeletal disease models, systemic administration of CBD suppressed the progression of collagen-induced arthritis by reducing inflammatory cytokine production."

Subject: Curcumin helps to effectively ease inflammatory bowel disease: China mouse study





Curcumin, a substance in turmeric, can halt progression of inflammatory bowel disease. Researchers in a leading Chinese university induced colitis in mice and treated them with the substance. Mice treated had a decrease in inflammatory cell infiltration into the colonic mucosa. It does this by suppressing dendritic cell activation which are responsible for creating bowel inflammation.

Key Takeaways:

  • Curcumin can help suppress the activation of dendritic cells, which play a pivotal role in the progression of inflammatory bowel disease, research from China has discovered.
  • Experimental colitis was induced ... , After seven days treatment with curcumin, its therapeutic effect was verified by decreased colonic weight, histological scores and remitting pathological injury.
  • These results hinted that curcumin potentially prevent the chronicity of colitis. Certainly the results should be verified repeatedly and explored... .

Subject: Immune system suppression may be related to problem drinking





Excessive alcohol intake can harm the body’s immune system in two ways. First, it produces an overall nutritional deficiency, depriving the body of valuable immune boosting nutrients. Second, alcohol, like sugar, consumed in excess can reduce the ability of white cells to kill germs. High doses of alcohol suppress the ability of the white blood cells to multiply, inhibit the action of killer white cells on cancer cells, and lessen the ability of macrophages to produce tumor necrosis factors.

Subject: Toxins in Your Fast-Food Packaging?





Fast food isn’t exactly known for its health benefits, but a new U.S. study suggests even the packaging may be harmful. That’s because the study found one-third of fast food packaging contains chemicals that give it stain-resistant, water-repellant and nonstick properties. The trouble is these fluorinated chemicals have also been linked to an increased risk of certain cancers, hormone problems, high cholesterol, obesity and immune suppression in human and animal studies.

Key Takeaways:

  • Testing on more than 400 samples from restaurants nationwide revealed that nearly half of fast-food wrappers and one out of five paperboard food boxes contained detectable levels of fluorine, said lead researcher Laurel Schaider. She's an environmental chemist at the Silent Spring Institute in Newton, Mass.
  • Previous studies have linked some fluorinated chemicals such as perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) to kidney and testicular cancer, low birth weight, thyroid disease, decreased sperm quality, pregnancy-induced high blood pressure, and immune system problems in children, the study authors said in background notes.
  • Major U.S. manufacturers voluntarily phased out PFOA and PFOS for most uses starting in 2011, but other countries still produce them. These study results show that fluorinated chemicals are still widely present in food packaging, the authors said.

"Major U.S. manufacturers voluntarily phased out PFOA and PFOS for most uses starting in 2011, but other countries still produce them."

Subject: Anti-aging 'Holy Basil' herb supports natural detoxification





Anyone who loves Italian food is probably aware of basil. Hindus actually view the plant as sacred and use it in many religious ways. However, Western herbalists are just now beginning to understand the power this herb has to detoxify and hold off aging. Indians already use basil to help with immunity and stress. It is this stress-relieving property that they believe to be the cause of its anti-aging properties. It also seems to have an effect on cortisol in the body. There is still much research that needs to be done on the subject.

Key Takeaways:

  • In Ayurveda, holy basil is used to support immunity, aid detoxification, modulate stress and slow aging.
  • According to Ayurveda, holy basil can be used to boost mood, stamina and endurance by filling the body with a calming energy.
  • Holy basil’s effects on cortisol may partially explain its traditional use in Ayurveda to soothe emotional and digestive upset.

"According to Ayurveda, holy basil can be used to boost mood, stamina and endurance by filling the body with a calming energy. It can help speed up slowed digestion or free up suppressed emotions."

Subject: Gut bacteria may hold key to treating autoimmune disease





Inflammation and autoimmunity are caused by inappropriate activity of the body's own regulatory T immune cells. A mutation in a gene called Foxp3 causes a fatal disease, IPEX syndrome, where these cells run amok. But new research shows an unexpected link to the gut: Foxp3 mutant mice end up missing a particular type of bacteria from their intestines. By replacing the missing bacterial species in the gut microbiome, many of the T cell-mediated inflammatory symptoms could be improved.

Key Takeaways:

  • T reg cells suppress the immune system and prevent it from attacking the body's own tissues by mistake.Defects in T reg cells therefore lead to various types of autoimmune disease.
  • This inherited autoimmune disorder is characterized by a variety of inflammatory conditions including eczema, type I diabetes, and severe enteropathy.
  • Autoimmune diseases can also be caused by changes in the gut microbiome, the population of bacteria that reside within the gastrointestinal tract.

"The study, published online in The Journal of Experimental Medicine, suggests that replacing the missing gut bacteria."

Subject: How does CBD help with Seizures

Seizures are the sudden changes in the brain's electrical activity. It usually affects how a person acts for a short period of time or appear. The symptoms of seizure include a loss of control and violent shaking. There can be several causes for the seizures. Anything that affects the brain's normal activity can lead to seizures. Several causes of seizures include injury to the head, fever, disease or even certain uses of medications. A person suffering from regular seizures due to brain disorder is called to be having epilepsy. Seizures can take different forms that affect many people in different ways, as some people call it electrical storms in the brain.


CBD, also known as Cannabidiol is one of the cannabinoids found in Cannabis that has potential medical benefits. CBD is non-psychoactive that does not psychoactive effects in the body, instead has shown positive outcomes in curing seizures. The reason behind why CBD is non-psychoactive is due to lack of affinity of CBD for CB1 receptors. CB1 receptors are present in a major concentration in the brain which is responsible for the psychoactive effect of THC. Most of the people suffering from seizures have reported the positive outcome, while they were on treatment with CBD. In recent years, CBD has been claimed to be most beneficial medication for the treatment of epilepsy. People who were under the treatment of anti-seizure medication called Clobazam has also responded positively in favor of Epidiolex, that contains 99% oil-based extract of CBD.

CBD has several therapeutic effects. Unlike THC, CBD has a less binding affinity to the CB1 and CB2, those are Cannabinoid receptors. Instead, CBD stimulates endogenous cannabinoid signal by suppressing enzyme fatty acid amide hydroxylase (FAAH). CBD helps in enhancing endocannabinoid by suppressing FAAH. CBD also opposes the action of THC at CB1 receptor, thus help to mute the effects of THC. CBD also stimulates 2-AG, that activates the CB1 and CB2 receptors, where CB2 receptors are predominant in the immune system and peripheral nervous system. It is found that CBD binds directly with 'G-protein' coupled receptors and other ion channels to grant therapeutic effect. CBD is also known as the TRPV-1 stimulant that helps, CBD-rich Cannabis in the effective treatment of the neuropathic pain.

How protein-rich diets help lose weight

Author: Darrell Miller (support@vitanetonline.com)
Subject: How protein-rich diets help lose weight





Many researchers have started focusing on the effect certain foods have on weight and metabolism. One such study involves determining how proteins help with weight loss. What they found is that phenylalanine is released when protein is broken down, which then causes the body to release hormones that tell our bodies that they are full. In contrast, low protein diets allow another hormone to be released in excess that tells us we are hungry. This research could someday lead to medications being developed that will help with the growing obesity epidemic.

Key Takeaways:

  • Lower estimated glomerular filtration rate, another indicator of poor kidney function, was linked with worse performance on tests of global cognitive function and memory.
  • A better understanding of the mechanism by which protein diets cause weight loss could lead to the development of drugs and diets that tackle the growing obesity epidemic.
  • In contrast, high levels of the hormone GLP-1 tell us when we have had enough food and tell our bodies to stop eating.

"the precise mechanisms by which phenylalanine suppresses appetite and body weight still need to be determined, and there are likely to be additional mechanisms which are also involved in the beneficial effects of a high protein diet."

Are you trying to lose weight? It seems like there is a ton of tips out there and a lot of it is going the route of contradicting each other. No matter where you look, there's something that's supposed to help you lose weight compared to something else (nevermind what helps weight gain!). "How does a high-protein diet aid weight loss? Study sheds light" gives proof that a high-protein diet is actually better than all those other tips...

Key Takeaways:

  • In a new pilot study, researchers from Imperial College London in the United Kingdom reveal how phenylalanine - an amino acid produced by the digestion of protein - boosts levels of a hormone that tells us when we are full, leading to reduced food intake.
  • The researchers found that mice and rats given phenylalanine showed increased levels of the hormone GLP-1, which suppresses appetite, but reduced levels of the hormone ghrelin, which increases hunger.
  • On applying phenylalanine to gut cells in a petri dish, the team found that the amino acid targets a receptor called the calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR), and it is this receptor that increases GLP-1 levels and lowers levels of ghrelin.

"Lead author Mariana Norton will present the findings at this week's Society for Endocrinology annual meeting in the U.K."

We know that constant badgering from our doctors saying that Vitamin D or any of the recommended vitamins are important to take but did you know that taking Vitamin D may help produce longevity in your life by working at the genetic level? A new study in worms shows that Vitamin D suppressed protein insolubility and prevented the toxicity.

Key Takeaways:

  • In the normal aging process, protein homeostasis is disturbed resulting in the accumulation of toxic insoluble protein aggregates.
  • A new study in nematode worms, shows that vitamin D suppressed protein insolubility in the worm and prevented the toxicity.
  • Vitamin D works through genes that are known to influence longevity and impacts processes associated with many human age-related diseases.

"Excess vitamin D can raise blood levels of calcium which leads to vascular and tissue calcification, with subsequent damage to the heart, blood vessels and kidneys."

What Exactly Do Friendly Bacteria Do In The Intestinal Tract?

Subject: What Exactly Do Friendly Bacteria Do In The Intestinal Tract?

Contrary to the popular belief that all bacteria are bad for your health, there are friendly bacteria that are very beneficial to your health. The friendly bacteria are mainly found in the colon, which is also known as the large intestine. The small intestine also has friendly bacteria. The first section of the intestine, the esophagus and the stomach are mostly bacteria-free due to the deterrent effect caused by the strong stomach acid as well as the high level of digestive enzymes in this areas.

The friendly bacteria that are found in the intestinal tract are very important to the human digestive system. They are responsible for producing enzymes that digest polysaccharides in plant cell walls. Some of the plant materials that you eat on a daily basis contribute to the fiber in your diet. The fiber is very important for a healthy colon. The enzymes that are released by the friendly bacteria usually make sure that most of the nutritional value of the plant materials that you eat does not go to waste.

Digestive System

Some bacteria in the intestinal tract usually make vitamin K, which is necessary for the formation of new bone and blood clotting. They also make the vitamins from the B group. These types of vitamins are very difficult to get from the food that you eat every day. Attempts of humans to manufacture them have not been fruitful so far. The beneficial bacteria are also very helpful in stimulating the immune system and maintaining optimum pH. They may also help in digesting or breaking down hormones that are not required anymore, drugs, and environmental substances that carry the risk of causing cancer.

Friendly bacteria also prevent the growth of harmful bacteria in the intestinal tract. When an ideal pH of the colon is maintained (which should be between 6.7 and 6.9), the growth of harmful bacteria such as shigella which causes diarrhea, salmonella which causes food poisoning, and e.coli which can cause kidney failure and intestinal disease is inhibited. The beneficial bacteria also produce volatile fatty acid which works together with other acids in the intestinal tract to suppress the survival of yeast (candida) and fungus.

Normalizing bowel movements is another function that the friendly bacteria play in the intestinal tract. They do this by decreasing the time that waste products usually take to move through the digestive system. They also aid in correcting diarrhea and stopping constipation. Good bacteria also stimulate the formation of antibodies that protect your body against infectious diseases. They make your immunity strong.

Another important thing that good bacteria do in the digestive system is removing toxic elements. They deactivate various organisms that are in food or produced by other organisms. This is mainly done by a bacterium called Lactobacillus acidophilus. The friendly bacteria are also instruments in reducing cholesterol, improving fat digestion by providing mobile acids, and protecting against cancer.

Gas problems are also eliminated by the good bacteria. They also sweeten your breath, which would be a foul-smelling waste if bad bacteria take over the intestinal tract. Production of lactase enzyme is another thing that good bacteria do. This enzyme is necessary for digesting milk and milk products when they get to the digestive system. Without it, allergies will be a sure thing.
