Importance of Probiotics
As you may know, there are many microorganisms that live within us as allies. We call these beneficial microorganisms probiotics which literally means “pro-life” because they confer a health benefit on the host. There are probiotics that ideally live in almost every nook and cranny of our bodies including in our intestines, lungs, mouth, nose, skin, genitals and more. These microorganisms also strengthen our immune function by creating a competitive environment making it difficult for potential pathogenic bacteria to establish themselves in our bodies. Bacteria in our gut help break compound nutrients down into smaller forms so that our bodies to assimilate the nutrition. Bacteria in our mouths keep other plaque forming or cavity forming bacteria in check.
It is more important than ever to replenish the bacterial populations in our bodies, because our culture today is fighting what we might call the “war on bacteria”. Our weapons are everything from chlorine in our water, to antibiotic use, to antibacterial cleansing products. All of these amount to the constant assault against bacteria we need in our bodies in order to function effectively.
Featuring a unique, highly desirable strain of streptococcus salivarius that is able to colonize and beneficially reside in the mouth. There are many strains of bacteria within the streptococcus group some of which are highly beneficial and absolutely required to maintain optimal bacteria balance while others are considered harmful when out of balance. Streptococcus salivarius is a prominent member of the oral microbiota that colonizes the mouth and upper respiratory tract of “healthy” humans. It establishes itself in human infants a few hours after birth, who typically acquire it from their mothers. This bacteria is a bacteria closely related to Streptococcus thermophilus, a benign organism used in the manufacture of yogurt and has excellent potential for use as a probiotic targeting the oral cavity.
