Why We Need Probiotics

A probiotic is an organism which contributes to the healthy balance of the digestive system, also referred to as the "good" bacteria. When ingested probiotics act to maintain a healthy intestinal tract and help battle sickness and disease.

A healthy colon should contain at least 85% friendly bacteria to prevent the over colonization of disease causing micro-organisms like E. coli and salmonella. Our colon can maintain its health with 15% unfriendly bacteria, if the body contains at least 85% probiotic bacteria. With today's unhealthy focus around food and diet most people have this percentage reversed.

Poor eating habits, chlorinated drinking water, stress and disease and the use of antibiotics in food production as well as in medical treatments can wreak havoc on the GI tract. These factors destroy good bacteria and allowing undesirable bacteria to multiply. When the ratio of good bacteria to bad is lowered, problems begin to arise. Some of these problems include: excessive gas and bloat, constipation, GI toxicity and mal nutrition and absorption of nutrients.

Probiotics counteract these effects by:

Because of the amazing effects and the neccesity of probiotics in one's system CCW promotes their use. There are many ways to get these healthy bacteria in your system BUT they don't have to come in a pill or a unsavory liquid. One product that we have found to be not only effective and easy to take but also extremely delicious is Grainfield's of Australia's Liquid Probiotic Supplements. Our favorite is the Lemon and Ginger Probiotic liquid. We reccomend using this liquid in conjunction with the Grains & Greens Meal Replacer Powder to create a tasty smoothie. Just add these products to your favorite frozen or fresh fruits and you have an easy way of increasing the healthy probiotics in your system...a treat that not only heals the body, but also provides a sweet and crave worthy treat every morning, afternoon, or evening!

Ask us how you can purchase these products from CCW in order to eliminate the shipping costs required by the company.
