Your Body’s Primary Defense Center Resides in Your . . . Bowels?
Top Doctor Reveals Little-Known Link Between
Your System’s Ability to Fight Disease
and the Bacteria Living in Your Gut
Urgent Message from David Brownstein, MD
Where is your body’s immune system located?
When I ask my patients this question, nearly all of them tell me they aren’t sure. Some know it involves your lymph nodes or spleen.
However, very few people realize that 70 to 80% of your body’s immune cells are located in a place you might not expect: Your gut.1
You see, while it may be embarrassing to talk about, over 100 million Americans suffer from issues related to their gut or GI tract. Issues such as constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating, nausea, or abdominal discomfort.
In fact, did you realize that more people suffer from simple occasional constipation than all other health concerns combined?
And there is growing evidence that bad bacteria in your gut has been linked to even depression and obesity!
In fact, numerous research studies in the past decade alone have found probiotics to be extremely beneficial to your health.
In addition to good bacteria helping with obesity and depression, these studies have found strong links with good gut bacteria and your body’s ability to:
- Strengthen your immune system; a powerful immune system is your key defender against diseases
- Reduce inflammation
- Boost absorption of critical vitamins and supplements — including B vitamins, niacin, vitamin K and more
- Reduce bad cholesterol’s entry in the bloodstream
- and help with many other conditions
Believe me, as a medical doctor I see patients with less than optimal digestive function every day . . .
Before I get into all that, however, I’d like to introduce myself.
I’m Dr. David Brownstein. I became a
medical doctor when I saw that far too many physicians were not addressing the true underlying cause of health issues. Instead, I believe that most mainstream doctors rely too heavily on drugs which only mask symptoms. I believe you deserve better than that!
So please keep reading, because I’m going to share with you crucial information about the little-known link between your immune and digestive systems. And I’ll give you five simple tips to help balance both of them — simultaneously and naturally.
Which of These 6 Common GI Tract
- Constipation . . .
- Diarrhea . . .
- Irregular bowel movements . . .
- Gas . . .
- Bloating . . .
- Abdominal discomfort . . .
I hope you take what you learn here today seriously. That’s because, as you grow older, this becomes an even more important issue . . .
Research Shows Seniors More Vulnerable to Gut Imbalance
Unfortunately, older adults often experience a decrease in their immune system function.2
And not coincidentally, research shows increased evidence of impaired gastrointestinal function as you grow older.
In fact, studies suggest that aging leads to a decrease in the gut microflora — the “good bacteria” that protects you against deadly diseases. One such good bacteria is the beneficial Bifidobacteria.3
You may have heard of these so-called “friendly” bacteria before.
For you to remain optimally healthy, about 85% of the bacteria in your gut should be composed of friendly fellows such as Lactobacillus or Bifidobacteria. The remaining 15% are generally made up of non-beneficial bacteria, but their minority status helps keeps them in check.
Unfortunately, in many people this ratio becomes imbalanced. The non-beneficial bacteria increase in numbers, crowding out the friendly bacteria.
The aging process is only one reason behind this imbalance. There are many others, but a few of the most common ones include:
- Poor diet, including high sugar diets
- Tap water that is chemically treated with fluoride and chlorine
- The use of antibiotics or certain other medications
- Chronic stress
Because these factors are so prevalent, I wanted to make sure to give you some simple strategies to help you maintain both systems optimally as you grow older.
5 Tips to Balance Both Your
Digestive and Immune Health
Tip #1: Avoid processed foods and sugar as much as possible
Very few people eat what I would consider an ideal diet. Most of the patients presenting to my office eat what I call the SAD diet (Standard American Diet). One of the most important things you can do to balance the beneficial bacteria in your gut is to avoid an overabundance of processed foods and sugar that characterize this SAD diet. Sugar actually provides food for non-beneficial bacteria to thrive.
Tip #2: Add more fiber to your diet
According to commonly established recommendations, adults need at least 20 to 35 grams of fiber per day for good health, but most Americans consume only about 10 to 15 grams per day.4 Fiber not only helps prevent and relieve simple, occasional constipation, but is also important for heart and metabolic health. Good sources of fiber include nuts, beans, and fresh fruits and vegetables.
Tip #3: Decrease your stress level
Even mainstream Harvard’s Healthbeat will tell you: “ . . . The brain and the gastrointestinal (GI) system are intimately connected — so intimately that they should be viewed as one system . . . it is difficult to try to heal a distressed gut without considering the role of stress and emotion.” If you experience excessive stress in your life, you might consider some form of stress reduction. That could include yoga, meditation, working less, shifting your priorities, and enjoying more leisure time.
Tip #4: Drink more water
Water is essential to good digestion (and good health in general). I have observed that most people don’t drink nearly enough. Water helps keep moving food through your digestive tract into the colon. Without sufficient water, your bowel movements may be difficult to pass. There are many opinions as to how much water you should drink daily. Some say 8 glasses per day. You can also take your body weight as a measure, and drink half that amount in ounces daily. For example, a 150-pound person should drink 75 ounces of water daily. Soda, coffee, and alcoholic beverages don’t count!
Tip #5: Add a high-quality probiotic supplement to your diet
Probiotics are the beneficial bacteria that live in your gut. You have about 100 trillion of them in your intestinal tract. In fact, there are so many of them that combined, they weigh about
2 or 3 pounds.
To offset the imbalance you now know is so common, I recommend taking a high quality probiotic supplement daily. Before discussing what to look for in a probiotic supplement, here’s what you should know . . .
to Choose a Quality Probiotic
Many people think they can get enough ‘friendly’ bacteria by eating yogurt. However, the sad truth is that store-bought yogurt products are, for the most part, a waste of your hard-earned money.
Unfortunately, most commercial yogurts are loaded with sugar and other additives, and often heat processed or pasteurized, which may destroy some of their live bacterial cultures.
Additionally, many people have problems digesting dairy products, and the pasteurization process may kill the lactase enzyme, which would have made the dairy product more easily digestible.
So your best bet is to invest a little in a premium probiotic supplement.
Before they come to see me, many of my patients have chosen probiotic products that are ineffective, both in terms of cost and health benefit. It’s not as easy as going down to your local drugstore or supermarket and picking up something that claims to be a probiotic.
You see, researchers warn that about half of the probiotic products available do not contain the bacteria listed on the label.
Plus, even those that do may not have the correct mix of bacterial strains to benefit your health.
And low quality products may not be manufactured in the correct way to help the bacteria survive a trip to the store shelf, no less the harsh trip through your acid-laden GI tract.
For this reason, using a high quality probiotic supplement is the only way to guarantee maximum health benefits. And since I couldn’t find one that satisfied my requirements, I took matters into my own hands and formulated Bactipro®.
I made sure it was formulated with the best ingredients possible, in a top certified laboratory.
I made sure the bacteria would remain stable. If you walk into a drug store or health food store, you will find numerous probiotics.
But many of them contain dead bacteria! These products were not formulated properly and not packaged to preserve live bacteria cultures.
Bactipro is . . . That’s why you need to try it!
You’ll see how to claim your own 30-day trial supply of these tasty probiotic wafers from this special offer in just a minute . . .
But first I’d like to tell you more about Bactipro, and give you 5 reasons why I believe it is superior to other probiotics on the market.
9 Benefits of Doctor-Developed Bactipro
Reason #1: Bactipro Offers a Multistrain Formula to
Support Both Your Small Intestine and Colon
Because there’s no “one size fits all”, I knew it was important to include a mixture of proven bacterial strains in your optimal probiotic formula.
So Bactipro contains SIX powerful probiotic strains in one tasty wafer — all carefully chosen to target your digestive health, immune health, and much more.
You’ll find strains from both the Bifidobacteria family and the Lactobacillus family, and here’s why:
- Bifidobacteria strains primarily work in the
intestine to help detoxify your colon and support normal elimination
- Lactobacillus strains primarily work in the
intestine to assist in digestion and absorption of foods, particularly in absorption of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients
To get into a bit more detail, here is a brief overview of the six strains of probiotic helpers you’ll find in Bactipro:
Bifidobacterium bifidum — This strain of probiotic bacteria is the most prominent one found in the colon and female vaginal tract. Like all probiotics, it helps the body produce and absorb vitamins. Plus, it supports immune system function, better GI tract function, may offer benefits against yeast overgrowth, and helps for occasional diarrhea.
Bifidobacterium longum — This bacterial strain, considered by many researchers to be one of the most important probiotics, is also found throughout the colon. It produces lactic acid, which increases acidity in the gut to help inhibit the growth of non-beneficial microorganisms. Studies suggest it promotes overall digestive health and supports immune health.
Lactobacillus acidophilus — Many people have heard of this probiotic strain, because it is often found in yogurt. It works primarily in the small intestine, and also has the potential to optimize the health of the vaginal and urinary tract. Additionally, it can decrease antibiotic side effect such as diarrhea, and alleviate simple digestive concerns, including occasional constipation.
Lactobacillus casei — This species of bacteria is found in the mouth and small intestine, where it has a wide pH and temperature range. This makes it better able to survive the trip through the GI tract for more effectiveness. L. casei is also thought to provide immune support.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus — This probiotic species is found primarily in the small intestine and vaginal tract. It is resistant to stomach acid, which makes it valuable in a probiotic formula. It helps optimize both the intestinal and genito-urinary tract. Studies indicate that it can reduce occasional diarrhea, and help lactose intolerance.
Lactobacillus sporogenes — Also known as Bacillus coagulans or Lactospore®, this bacterial strain offers the benefit of producing spores, which offer greater resistance to destruction as they pass through the GI tract. Just a few of the benefits seen in studies with this strain include help for occasional diarrhea, simple constipation, and other digestive concerns.
Reason #2: Bactipro Gives You More Fiber with No Effort
You may hear dietary fiber termed “roughage”. Actually, the insoluble component of fiber is the part of certain foods your body is unable to absorb, and therefore passes mainly intact throughout your digestive tract.
As you discovered earlier, a high-fiber diet has many benefits, including promoting bowel movements and helping alleviate occasional constipation.
Constipation is actually one of the most common health concerns faced by Americans today. And it’s especially common in older adults due to:
- Poor diet
- Inadequate fluid intake
- Not enough exercise or prolonged bed rest
- Side effect of prescription drugs
- Overuse of laxatives and enemas
That’s just one of many reasons why getting more fiber in your daily diet is critical.
Fiber is also good for your health, promotes balanced cholesterol and blood glucose levels, and aids in weight management. A higher fiber diet tends to make you feel “full” for a longer time, decreasing hungriness, and making you less likely to overeat.
Bactipro’s fiber blend includes the well-studied fiber inulin and the breakthrough fiber product Fibersol®-2.
Both human and animal studies over a 15-year period demonstrate that Fibersol-2 helps maintain and support intestinal regularity and healthy blood sugar and triglyceride levels when used as part of a healthy diet.
Plus, Fibersol-2 helps relieve occasional constipation and improve stool consistency. And recent studies indicate that Fibersol-2 helps in feeling full after eating for a longer period of time, making it helpful in weight management.
Inulin is a well-studied prebiotic and natural carbohydrate derived from foods like chicory root. Via the intestinal fermentation process, both inulin and Fibersol-2 nourish and help create more of your healthy intestinal microflora.
That leads me to . . .
Great Reason #3 — Get PREbiotics and PRObiotics in One Tasty Product
You’ve already heard a lot about
biotics and what they can do for you. But perhaps you haven’t heard of
biotics . . .
Prebiotics are nutrients that feed, nourish, and help create the beneficial probiotic bacteria in your intestines. Basically, it all comes down to the fiber you just heard all about.
The Fibersol-2 and inulin blend you’ll find in Bactipro will help feed and encourage the growth of more friendly bacteria in your gut. So you not only get more fiber in your diet, but your new probiotic ‘friends’ will enjoy the added nourishment, too.
Great Reason #4: Get More Health-Boosting Antioxidants in Bactipro
In each tasty Bactipro wafer, you’ll find an awesome antioxidant blend of 8 fruit-based nutrients, including resveratrol and grape seed extract.
Antioxidants help protect and repair your body’s cells from damage caused by free radicals. It’s important to minimize the impact of these free radicals on your body by boosting your antioxidant intake.
Resveratrol and grape seed extract, both found in Bactipro, help support the heart. Grape compounds also promote good brain health.
Lutein is important to promote eye health, and lycopene is a powerful antioxidant that helps with eye and heart health. Cranberry promotes good urinary health. Mangosteen is a fruit that helps promote proper inflammation balance within the body.
Great Reason #5: Bactipro Contains a Power-Packed
Phytonutrient Blend of 26 Fruits and Vegetables
You may not have heard of phytonutrients before. They are the natural chemical compounds that give plant foods their colors. Over 5,000 different phytonutrients have been identified to date.
And while phytonutrients do not have established daily requirement guidelines, they are crucial for overall health. In particular, phytonutrients help support good heart and eye health. They are also believed to play a role in detoxifying, repairing DNA damage, and promoting a proper inflammatory response.
That’s why I ensure Bactipro contains a robust complex of phytonutrients from 26 different fruits and vegetables, including the ones listed below:
Carotenoid Phytonutrients: Alpha- and beta-carotenes provide yellow and orange colors in certain fruits and vegetables, such as carrots. These compounds are important in eye health and immune system health. Lycopene gives red or pink colors to fruits or vegetables such as tomatoes, and helps promote cellular health. Lutein and zeaxanthin are important for eye health, and are found in greens such as kale and spinach.
Flavonoid Phytonutrients: Quercetin is found in apples, grapes, berries, and onions. Quercetin is important to support good heart health. Hesperidin is found in citrus fruits, and optimizes the body’s inflammatory response. It is also an antioxidant.
Resveratrol Phytonutrients: Found in grapes, this compound has been studied for its heart health-promoting qualities as well as its effects on lifespan.
Glucosinolate Phytonutrients: Found in cruciferous vegetables, including kale, broccoli, and brussels sprouts, these phytonutrients help promote cellular integrity.
Ellagic Acid Phytonutrients: Found in raspberries and strawberries, ellagic acid promotes heart health.
As you can see, you’ll find an enormous amount of nutrients and probiotic bacteria packed into these chewable, delicious Bactipro wafers.
And unlike many cheap and inferior probiotics on the market, Bactipro is manufactured under stringent quality controls to ensure the potency and stability of the product and the bacterial strains.
I’m confident in the research behind the ingredients in Bactipro — and in the processing and packaging that goes into bringing it directly to you ready to provide you with a source of high quality probiotic strains.
In fact, I’m so confident that Bactipro can help support your immune and digestive systems, I’d like to give you the opportunity to try it as part of a Risk-Free Trial Offer!
