What are Prebiotics?
Prebiotics are nondigestible food components that may benefit the host by stimulating the growth and/or activity of selective microflora organisms found in stages 3 and 4 - Fortefy and Flora-Elite. Prebiotics can be taken alone or with a probiotic supplement (beneficial bacteria) to encourage their survival and growth in the colon.
How do they work?
Some of the ingredients in Eco-Flora can encourage the multiplication of beneficial bacteria types such as Bifidobacteria and Acidophilus. Other ingredients can selectively promote certain microflora to product more colonic nutrients - butyric acid and other short chain fatty acids.
Why use Prebiotics?
Eco-Flora can be used to supplement a low carb lifestyle to help nourish the beneficial colonic bacteria that may be deprived of necessary dietary carbohydrate fiber. Published data on prebiotics shows they may enhance mineral absorption, help soften stools and maintain a more balanced colonic microflora. At the recommendation of your physician, Eco-Flora can be taken during or following antibiotic use.
The Rejuvi-Flora System
The Rejuvi-Flora System is a four-step system designed to bring microflora back to healthy and optimal levels. Shortened use, insufficient counts and lack of ongoing nourishment are shortcomings of other microflora supplements. The Rejuvi-Flora System is a COMPLETE replenishment course.
The total size of the intestinal microflora in adults is estimated at 40-80 trillion microorganisms. The majority of this micro-flora is found in progressively increasing numbers, between the end of the small intestine and the distal colon. Under regular conditions, various pathogens and opportunistic microorganisms intermingle with the friendly microorganisms, but are normally suppressed, and do not achieve numerical superiority (overgrowth). Mild to moderate stressors (such as being sick with a cold or the flu or going through stressful times in your life) and usage of antibiotics, can dislodge some of the good and friendly bacteria, thus allowing unhealthy opportunists to overgrow to undesirable levels. Bringing your microflora back into balance for optimal health is something you may want to consider. InterPlexus offers a complete system for microflora rejuvenation. If you have experienced any of the following situations in the last 6 months, you may benefit from a probiotic replenishment course:
Being sick (cold, flu, strep throat, etc)
Being under stress (this can be either positive OR negative stress, such as getting married or losing your job)
Taking certain antibiotics
Other immune compromising factors
