The Leading Source Guide To Probiotics, Prebiotics, Yogurt, Acidophilus, Lactobacillus, Kefir and Other Sources of Friendly Bacteria and Yeast Organisms.

As the largest independent resource of probiotic information and product reviews, our goal is to educate you about what probiotics are, what overall benefits the current research has reported, any possible probiotic side effects to be aware of, which probiotic strains have shown effective for illness and illness prevention, and a a clear and concise way to evaluate what each probiotic supplement brand has brought to the marketplace.

In the book "Probiotics, Protection from Infection," Dr.Casey Adams, PhD., the book's author and a contributing author of our site, cites several hundreds of studies pertaining to taking probiotic supplements and/or eating food rich in probiotics and the direct relationship between these conditions, diseases and body systems:

-rotavirus
-intestinal bacteria
 infections
-cholesterol
-liver disease
-blood pressure
-gum disease and
-dental caries
 (cavities)
-bacterial infections
-irritable bowel
 syndrome (IBS)
-Crohn's disease
-digestive problems
-allergies eczema
-lactose intolerance
-polyps
-diverticulosis
-diverticulitis
-ulcers
-constipation
-pancreatitis
-kidney stones
-kidney disease
-vaginosis
-vaginitis
-candida infections
-premature birth weights
-baby colic

-keratoconjunctivitis
-immunosuppression
-cancer
-HIV/AIDS
-autoimmune disease
-inflammatory diseases
-viruses:
 colds, influenza and
 herpes

Join us as we review friendly bacteria strains such as Acidophilus and other lactobacillus organisms.  We also reviewed friendly yeast organisms such as Saccharomyces Boulardii and Saccharomyces Cerevisiae, as well as research about foods rich in probiotics like Yogurt and Kefir. We even answer the question about whether that truly tasty Frozen Yogurt really has any probiotic benefit!  Hopefully, this site will serve as your guide to understanding everything you need to make an informed and well educated decision when choosing the best probiotic for you.

In case you are new to the natural science of probiotics, here is an introduction to bring you up to speed:

The human body houses somewhere in the neighborhood of one hundred trillion bacteria within the body—about 3.5 pounds worth. The digestive tract alone contains about 400-500 different bacteria species. There are ten times more probiotic bacteria in the body than the body's cells. This means our bodies are more bacterial than cellular.

Our friendly probiotic bacteria also make up approximately 70% of our immune system, according to a number of experts. Scientists are now even suggesting that the DNA of probiotic bacteria is more important than our cells’ DNA in predicting our vulnerabilities and possible future diseases.  Our probiotics are critical to our body's ability to fight infection. As we will illustrate on this website, research has shown that the body's probiotic bacteria prevent and reduce incidence of fungal infections, bacteria infections and virus infections.

What is a Probiotic?

Microorganisms living within our bodies may be either probiotic, pathobiotic or eubiotic. A probiotic is a microorganism that contributes positively to the body’s health. These friendly bacteria also are also called flora—meaning “healthful.”

A pathobiotic, on the other hand, is a microorganism that harms or impedes the body in one way or another.

Meanwhile, a eubiotic can be either harmful or helpful to the body, depending upon their colony size and location. A healthy body contains a substantially greater number of probiotics than pathobiotics, while a diseased body likely contains more pathobiotic than probiotic populations.

The mission of this information site is to offer unbiased and objective scientific reporting on probiotics. Join us as we explore this critical and fascinating element of the human body and health using the latest scientific discoveries.
