Why? Because we are our bacteria. The human body is home to about 100 trillion bacterial cells. In fact, the bacteria in your body outnumber your "human" cells by 10 to one. These cells live in your digestive system, but they affect almost every other function in your body. These beneficial bacteria are essential to staying healthy and full of energy.
Over the past 60 years, however, the use of antibiotics has reduced the amount of good bacteria in your gut. In addition, the popularity of preservatives and added sugars in many foods has affected the diversity of your "microbiome." Probiotics are a safe and effective way to restore the balance of good bacteria in your digestive system. At Probiotic America, we’re determined to spread the word about the remarkable health benefits of probiotics.
My name is Dr. Cary Nelson. I’ve been practicing family medicine in Los Angeles, CA for over 10 years. During that time, I’ve prescribed probiotics supplements to hundreds of patients and the results have been incredible. When these patients returned to my office, they were healthier, happier, and more vibrant. I’ve seen it for myself, and now I want to share this with the world. Researchers are discovering more and more health benefits of probiotics everyday, and I believe this field is truly the new frontier of nutritional science.
