Antimicrobial Effects of Probiotics.
A.    Modify microflora to suppress pathogens.
B.    Secrete antibacterial substances. Probiotic bacteria produce a variety of substances that are inhibitory to both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. These include organic acids, hydrogen peroxide and bacteriocins. These compounds may reduce not only the number of viable pathogenic organisms but may also affect bacterial metabolism and toxin production. This occurs through reduction of luminal pH through the production of volatile short-chain fatty acids, mainly acetates, propionates and butyrates. And of course, through production of lactic acid (Bifidobacterium, Lactobacillus, Streptococcus), leading to a reduction in colonic pH.
C.    Compete with pathogens to prevent their adhesion to the intestine.
D.    Compete for nutrients necessary for pathogen survi
E.    Antitoxin effect
Effect of Probiotics on the Intestinal Epithelium.
A. Promote tight contact between epithelial cells forming a functional barrier.
B. Reducing the secretory and inflammatory consequences of bacterial infection.
C. Enhancing the production of defensive molecules such as mucins.
Immune Effects of Probiotics
A. Probiotics as vehicles to deliver anti-inflammatory molecules to the Intestine.
B. Enhance signaling in host cells to reduce inflammatory response.
C. Switch in immune response to reduce allergy.
D. Reduce the production of inflammatory substances.


Candida is a fungus that normally inhabits the mouth, throat, gbastrointestinal tract and vagina. Under normal conditions, candida exists within us in a healthy balance, and the body’s immune system keeps it from spreading.  When your immune system is strong, candida yeasts presents no problem.  But, if you have a poor and sugary diet, nutritional deficiencies, exposure to toxins and stress and/or take antibiotics or other medications the good bacteria that prevent fungal infections from developing can get knocked out.  Candida yeasts then multiply and further weaken the immune system.
Symptoms of Candida
Feelings of frustration and loneliness are common when dealing with a yeast overgrowth because Candida is evasive to much of the medical community. Here are some of the common symptoms:
• Gas, bloating and indigestion
• Bowel irregularities, constipation or diarrhea
• Food cravings especially for carbohydrates or sweets
• Mood swings or depression
• Headaches or migraines
• Menstrual problems and PMS
• Dry, itchy skin or hives
• Finger or toe nail fungus
• Vaginal yeast infections
• Itching or redness in body creases
• Chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia
• Weight imbalances (over or under-weight despite diet)
• Premature ageing
• Chemical sensitivity (especially colognes or fabric dye)
What You Can Do to Fight Candida – Probiotics For Candida
Probiotics will help reduce Candida overgrowth. Our Adult Formula CP-1 capsules and our Six-Strain Custom Probiotic powder are being used extensively by Candida patients with remarkable results. Dosage differs from person to person. The greater the imbalance, the higher the dosage that may be required to overcome Candida.
Dietary Changes in Reducing Candida
Changing your diet is also recommend to control the Candida. Your diet should exclude fruit, sugar and yeast. Especially in the beginning of the treatment you have to be very strict and disciplined. If you cheat you’ll feel the effect of the Candida “monster”.
Anti-fungal agents can also be used. The major anti-fungal prescription medications are Nystatin, Diflucan, Nizoral and Sporanox. Natural antifungal and antibacterial agents are garlic, olive leaf extract, oil of oregano, pau d’arco, uva ursi, golden seal, caprylic acid and citrus seed extract. Fibers such as flaxseed powder and psyllium husk are also beneficial.

Balancing Act
Generally speaking, proper diet, high potency and quality multi-strain probiotics and natural anti-fungal agents are essential in the prevention, control and elimination of Candida.
As the intestinal and vaginal microflora become balanced, you can tolerate a greater variety of foods. If you think you might have symptoms of Candida overgrowth, consult a health care practitioner who is familiar with this condition. Other conditions have similar manifestations. Self-diagnosis and self-treatment may cause these conditions to be overlooked.

Chowing Down On Meat, Dairy Alters Gut Bacteria A Lot, And Quickly


December 11, 2013 1:34 PM

To figure out how diet influences the microbiome, scientists put volunteers on two extreme diets: one that included only meat, egg and cheese and one that contained only grains, vegetables and legumes.

Morgan Walker/NPR

Looks like Harvard University scientists have given us another reason to walk past the cheese platter at holiday parties and reach for the carrot sticks instead: Your gut bacteria will thank you.

Switching to a diet packed with meat and cheese — and very few carbohydrates — alters the trillions of microbes living in the gut, scientists report Wednesday in the journal Nature.

The change happens quickly. Within two days, the types of microbes thriving in the gut shuffle around. And there are signs that some of these shifts might not be so good for your gut: One type of bacterium that flourishes under the meat-rich diet has been linked to inflammation and intestinal diseases in mice.

“I mean, I love meat,” says microbiologist Lawrence David, who contributed to the study and is now at Duke University.

“But I will say that I definitely feel a lot more guilty ordering a hamburger … since doing this work,” he says.

Scientists are just beginning to learn about how our decisions at the dinner table — or the drive-through — tweak our microbiome, that is, the communities of bacteria living in our bodies. But one thing is becoming clear: The critters hanging out in our intestine influence many aspects of our health, including weight, immunity and perhaps evenbehavior.

And interest in studying the links between diet and the human microbiome is growing. Previous research in this field had turned up tantalizing evidence that eating fiber can alter the composition of gut bacteria. But these studies had looked at diets over long periods of times — months and even years. David and his colleagues wanted to know whether fiber — or lack of it — could alter gut bacteria more rapidly.

To figure that out, the researchers got nine volunteers to go on two extreme diets for five days each.

The first diet was all about meat and cheese. “Breakfast was eggs and bacon,” David says. “Lunch was ribs and briskets, and then for dinner, it was salami and prosciutto with an assortment of cheeses. The volunteers had pork rinds for snacks.”

Then, after a break, the nine volunteers began a second, fiber-rich diet at the other end of the spectrum: It all came from plants. “Breakfast was granola cereal,” David says. “For lunch, it was jasmine rice, cooked onions, tomatoes, squash, garlic, peas and lentils.” Dinner looked similar, and the volunteers could snack on bananas and mangoes.

“The animal-based diet is admittedly a little extreme,” he says. “But the plant-based diet is one you might find in a developing country.”

David and the team analyzed the volunteers’ microbiomes before, during and after each diet. And the effects of all that meat and cheese were immediately apparent.

“The relative abundance of various bacteria species looked like it shifted within a day after the food hit the gut,” David says. After the volunteers had spent about three days on each diet, the bacteria in the gut even started to change their behavior. “The kind of genes turned on in the microbes changed in both diets,” he says.

In particular, microbes that “love bile” — the Bilophila — started to dominate the volunteers’ guts during the animal-based diet. Bile helps the stomach digest fats. So people make more bile when their diet is rich in meat and dairy fats.

A study last year found that blooms of Bilophila cause inflammation and colitis in mice. “But we didn’t measure levels of inflammation in our subjects,” David says. “That’s the next step.”

Instead, he says, his team’s data support the overall animal model that Bilophila promotes inflammation, which could ultimately be controlled by diet.

“Our study is a proof of concept that you can modify the microbiome through diet,” David says. “But we’re still a long ways off from being able to manipulate the community in any kind of way that an engineer would be pleased about.”

Even just classifying Bilophila as “bad bacteria” is a tricky matter, says Dr. Purna Kashyap, a gastroenterologist at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.

“These bacteria are members of a community that have lived in harmony with us for thousands of years,” says Kashyap, who wasn’t involved in the study. “You can’t just pick out one member of this whole team and say it’s bad. Most bacteria in the gut are here for our benefit, but given the right environment, they can turn on us and cause disease.”

Nevertheless, Kashyap thinks the Nature study is exciting because the findings unlock a potentially new avenue for treating intestinal diseases. “We want to look at diet as a way of treating patients,” Kashyap says. “This study shows that short-term dietary interventions can change microbial composition and function.”

Of course, figuring out exactly how to do that will take much more research.

“The paper has made the next leap in the field,” Kashyap says. “With discovery comes responsibility. Once you make this big finding, it needs to be tested appropriately.”



Gut Bacteria Might Guide The Workings Of Our Minds


November 18, 2013 3:07 AM

Could the microbes that inhabit our guts help explain that old idea of “gut feelings?” There’s growing evidence that gut bacteria really might influence our minds.

“I’m always by profession a skeptic,” says Dr. Emeran Mayer, a professor of medicine and psychiatry at the University of California, Los Angeles. “But I do believe that our gut microbes affect what goes on in our brains.”

Mayer thinks the bacteria in our digestive systems may help mold brain structure as we’re growing up, and possibly influence our moods, behavior and feelings when we’re adults. “It opens up a completely new way of looking at brain function and health and disease,” he says.

So Mayer is working on just that, doing MRI scans to look at the brains of thousands of volunteers and then comparing brain structure to the types of bacteria in their guts. He thinks he already has the first clues of a connection, from an analysis of about 60 volunteers.

Mayer found that the connections between brain regions differed depending on which species of bacteria dominated a person’s gut. That suggests that the specific mix of microbes in our guts might help determine what kinds of brains we have — how our brain circuits develop and how they’re wired.

Of course, this doesn’t mean that the microbes are causing changes in brain structure, or in behavior.

But other researchers have been trying to figure out a possible connection by looking at gut microbes in mice. There they’ve found changes in both brain chemistry and behavior. One experiment involved replacing the gut bacteria of anxious mice with bacteria from fearless mice.

“The mice became less anxious, more gregarious,” says Stephen Collins of McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, who led a team that conducted the research.

It worked the other way around, too — bold mice became timid when they got the microbes of anxious ones. And aggressive mice calmed down when the scientists altered their microbes by changing their diet, feeding them probiotics or dosing them with antibiotics.

To find out what might be causing the behavior changes, Collins and his colleagues then measured brain chemistry in mice. They found changes in a part of the brain involved in emotion and mood, including increases in a chemical calledbrain-derived neurotrophic factor, which plays a role in learning and memory.

Scientists also have been working on a really obvious question — how the gut microbes couldtalk to the brain.

A big nerve known as the vagus nerve, which runs all the way from the brain to the abdomen, was a prime suspect. And when researchers in Ireland cut the vagus nerve in mice, they no longer saw the brain respond to changes in the gut.

“The vagus nerve is the highway of communication between what’s going on in the gut and what’s going on in the brain,” says John Cryan of the University College Cork in Ireland, who has collaborated with Collins.

Gut microbes may also communicate with the brain in other ways, scientists say, by modulating the immune system or by producing their own versions of neurotransmitters.

“I’m actually seeing new neurochemicals that have not been described before being produced by certain bacteria,” says Mark Lyte of the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in Abilene, who studies how microbes affect the endocrine system. “These bacteria are, in effect, mind-altering microorganisms.”

This research raises the possibility that scientists could someday create drugs that mimic the signals being sent from the gut to the brain, or just give people the good bacteria — probiotics — to prevent or treat problems involving the brain.

One group of scientists has tested mice that have behaviors similar to some of the symptoms of autism in humans. The idea is that the probiotics might correct problems the animals have with their gastrointestinal systems — problems that many autistic children also have.

In the mice, many of their autism behaviors were no longer present or strongly ameliorated with probiotics, says Paul Patterson at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, Calif. His research will be published soon in the journal Cell.

Experiments to test whether changing gut microbes in humans could affect the brain are only just beginning.

One team of researchers in Baltimore is testing a probiotic to see if it can help prevent relapses of mania among patients suffering from bipolar disorder.

“The idea is that these probiotic treatments may alter what we call the microbiome and then may contribute to an improvement of psychiatric symptoms,” says Faith Dickerson, director of psychology at the Sheppard Pratt Health System.

“It makes perfect sense to me,” says Leah, a study participant who has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. She agreed to talk with NPR if we agreed not to use her full name. “Your brain is just another organ. It’s definitely affected by what goes on in the rest of your body.”

It’s far too soon to know whether the probiotic has any effect, but Leah suspects it might. “I’m doing really well,” she says. “I’m about to graduate college, and I’m doing everything right.”

Mayer also has been studying the effects of probiotics on the brain in humans. Along with his colleague Kirsten Tillisch, Mayer gave healthy women yogurt containing a probiotic and then scanned their brains. He found subtle signs that the brain circuits involved in anxiety were less reactive, according to a paper published in the journal Gastroenterology.

But Mayer and others stress that a lot more work will be needed to know whether that probiotic — or any others — really could help people feel less anxious or help solve other problems involving the brain. He says, “We’re really in the early stages.”


Autism and Probiotics

Autism is a complex developmental disability that affects a person’s ability to communicate and interact with others, with a wide range of behavioral, social, and language problems. Autism usually appears during the first three years of life.
Autism is characterized by a collection of neurobehavioral, neurological, gastrointestinal and immunological dysfunctions that include a loss of eye contact, deficiencies in socialization and communication, abnormal theory of mind function, language dysfunction, restrictive, repetitive, and stereotypical behaviors, food allergies, constipation, yeast infections and other behavioral and medical conditions.
Autism is called a “spectrum disorder” since it affects individuals differently and to varying degrees.

It is estimated that one in every 150 American children has some degree of autism with males being affected three to four times more frequently than females. Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are complicated conditions that may require an integrative treatment protocol involving many factors including behavioral and social therapy, pharmacotherapy, environmental control, dietary supplements, nutritional, alternative and biomedical therapies. Many are sick with gastrointestinal, immunologic, and metabolic problems that significantly affect their behavior and their physical and emotional health. Treating the medical problems often leads to improvement in clinical signs and symptoms and, in some cases, to recovery.
Causes of Autism
There has been an exponential increase in the number of new diagnoses of autism. And there is continuing debate and controversy as to what the diagnosis ‘autism’ actually constitutes. There is even more debate and controversy as to its causes, and potential for treatment /amelioration.
The fundamental cause of Autism, based in our experience, is severe intestinal flora imbalances resulting into immune imbalances mainly due to gastrointestinal infections, antibiotics and vaccinations that in turn affect the brain. We have daily phone and e-mail contacts with parents of ASD children where parents detail causes and symptoms of Autism and treatments they undertake for their children. Our evaluation of causes of Autism is as follows.
Autism usually appears during the first three years of life. The reason is, and it is well documented, that between the ages of 0-3, the intestinal microflora of a child is not well established yet. The same can be said about the brain and nervous system. They are in a stage of formation and are fragile. During this time, if a lot of antibiotics and/or vaccinations are given, and if the immune system of a child is somewhat low, the intestinal microflora being fragile is affected negatively. As a result a toxic condition is produced in the gut that will affect the brain and the nervous system to various extents. The more toxicity in the gut the more the effect on the brain. As a result, the majority of children with Autism reveal abnormal gastrointestinal symptoms including food allergies, yeast infections, constipation.
Factors affecting Gut/Brain/Immune dysfunction and Autism are indicated in Fig. 1. These factors result into at least two types of ASD with regard to disease development: abnormal cognitive development evident from birth (classical autism); and in the majority cases developmental regression, usually between 18-36 months of age, following apparent normal development (regressive autism).
Gut/Brain/Immune Dysfunction and Autism

It is very important to understand the direct relationship between the gut and brain, especially during the first three years of life, when both are in a stage of formation. The above factors make the immune system of each child different and unique. Therefore physicians, especially pediatricians, should not treat all children alike, but on a case by case basis after careful evaluation with the parents. A detailed history should be taken that can determine, at least qualitatively, the immune system of each child. Hence the standard vaccination schedule can not be applicable, if the above factors are not evaluated and taken into consideration properly.
Gut-Brain-Immune Axis
The gastrointestinal tract is a complex ecosystem in which there is a delicate balance between the intestinal microflora and the host. A healthy gastrointestinal tract should contain a high percentage of Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria beneficial bacteria to prevent the over colonization of disease causing pathogenic micro-organisms such as E. Coli, Clostridia, Salmonella and Candida.
Bidirectional interactions between the brain and intestinal microflora might have an important role in modulating gut and brain function and may be involved in the modulation of emotions, pain perception, mucosal immune activity and general well-being. The reduction of Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria and overgrowth of pathogenic bacteria will be stressful to this brain/gut interactions especially for infants aged 0-3 producing neurological and immune imbalances and affecting their development. The neurological and immune systems are inextricably intertwined beginning in the embryonic stage of life. Disruption of the bidirectional interactions between the intestinal microflora and the nervous system may be involved in the pathophysiology of acute and chronic gastrointestinal and neurological disease states. Fig. 2 is a representation of such interaction.

Probiotic Supplements For Autism
We are using a D-Lactate Free Probiotic powder formulation that has been used most specifically for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). D-Lactate is a by-product of probiotic fermentation that may produce neurological problems. This D-Lactate Free Probiotic powder formulation is very high in potency at 250 billion cfu’s per gram. It contains L. Salivarius, L. Rhamnosus, B. Bifidum and B. Infantis. It is dairy free, hypoallergenic and does not contain any artificial colors, flavors, sugar, casein, gluten, soy or FOS. A few thousand children with ASD have used this D-Lactate Free formulation successfully worldwide. Results have been from moderate to dramatic improvements in their conditions ranging from formed stools, reduction of diarrhea or constipation, yeast or Candida control, intestinal flora and food allergy improvement, amelioration of skin conditions, more relaxed and less agitated conditions, better concentration, behavior, language, eye contact and speech.
Daily probiotics usage is recommended and dosage varies from person to person. Dosage depends on the age of the child, extent of intestinal flora imbalances due to candida or other pathogenic bacteria and the response of each child to it.

D-Lactate Free Probiotic powder formulated to be specifically helpful for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), by improving their intestinal microflora and digestive processes.D-lactate is a result of fermentation of probiotic bacteria in the digestive system. An excess of D-lactate in our system can produce digestive and neurological problems.L. Plantarum and L. Acidophilus produce high D-lactate and therefore we do not include them in our D-lactate free formula.

Probiotics and Autism
Probiotics are defined as “live microorganisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit to the host”. They possess the ability to transiently colonize the GI tract, increase the concentration of beneficial microbes, and thereby create a balance in the gut microbiota to the ultimate benefit of the host, in a natural and safe way.
Potential or known mechanisms whereby probiotic bacteria might impact on the microbiota include:
competition for dietary ingredients as growth substrates
bioconversion of, for example, sugars into fermentation products with inhibitory properties
production of growth substrates
direct effect on pathogens
competitive exclusion for binding sites
improved barrier function
reduction of inflammation, thus altering intestinal properties for colonization and persistence within, and (8) stimulation of innate immune response.
Probiotics can therefore be used to prevent or reduce the risk of ASD for infants aged 0-3. This can be done by protecting their digestive and immune systems by using probiotics at appropriate dosages prior, during and after any intervention, such as antibiotics or vaccinations, that affect negatively the intestinal microflora and immune system of the mother and infant, as indicated in Fig. 1. Choosing the correct probiotic formulation and dosages are considerations that also must be understood and followed by pediatricians and parents alike.
To conclude, it is important to understand the causes of Autism and take steps to prevent or reduce the risk from its happening. While probiotics will not cure Autism after the fact, modifications of gut function using proper probiotic dosages can improve symptoms to various extents, depending how severe the brain is affected. Our D-Lactate Free probiotic formulation has been very successful in this respect. It has been used by Health Care Professionals and parents of children with ASD around the world for the past 8 years. Our clients have also seen improvements using various biomedical treatments such as gluten, casein and sugar free diet, chelation, antifungals, DAN protocol, methyl B-12 shots, speech therapy and social groups and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
D-Lactate Free Probiotic Dosage Suggestions
Dosage of probiotics used per day is very important and it varies from person to person. Dosage depends on the age of the child, extent of intestinal flora imbalances dues to candida or other pathogenic bacteria. Therefore our strategy is to start at a low dosage and gradually go up to a dosage that gives optimum results.
We supply child scoops and adult scoops. Each child scoops measures 0.1 grams of our four strain D-Lactate Free probiotic powder which is equivalent to about 25 billion cfu’s. Each adult scoop measures about 0.8 grams equivalent to about 200 billion cfu’s of probiotic bacteria. The greater the bacterial imbalance in the digestive system, the higher the dosage required for positive and measurable results. However the appropriate dosage of probiotics needs to be determined individually. If you get ANY negative reactions as you go up in dosage, then that means you have used too much. Stop the probiotics for one day and go back to the previous dosage.
It is suggested taking probiotics first thing in the morning and/or at bedtime, with water.
For very young children ages 1-4, use the child scoop. Below are our dosage suggestions:
Start with one child scoop (0.1 gram) of the probiotic powder first thing in the morning on empty stomach. Dissolve the powder in a glass of dechlorinated water and drink it. Stay at this dosage for about 3 days.pro
If you do not see any improvement in symptoms, you can raise the dosage to one scoop in the morning and one scoop at bedtime. After 3-5 days, if you are not happy with the results, you can go up in dosage to 2 scoops AM and 2 scoops PM a day. You can go to higher dosages as well, IF need be. Have your child’s breakfast after about 30 minutes from the time of taking probiotics.
NOTE: Every digestive system is unique like a fingerprint. You have to find the dosage that best suits YOUR child. It may be one, two, three or even six scoops a day depending on child’s age and results obtained. Thus gradual increase in dosage is recommended. Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information or assistance.
For older children, you can start using the child scoop and then go up to the adult scoops IF need be. Below are our dosage suggestions:
Start with one scoop (0.8 gram) of the probiotic powder first thing in the morning on empty stomach. Dissolve the powder in a glass of dechlorinated water and drink it. Do this ONCE a day only. Stay at this dosage for about 3-5 days.
If you are not happy with the results, you can raise the dosage to one scoop of the powder dissolved in water first thing in the morning, and one scoop at bedtime. After one week, if you are not happy with the results, go up to 3 scoops a day. Have your breakfast after about 30 minutes from the time of taking probiotics.
STORAGE: This probiotic formulations must be refrigerated to maintain maximum potency. You can store the D-Lactate free probiotics powders in the freezer, since the probiotics are freeze dried. You can wash and dry the scoops before usage. You can also travel with these probiotic supplements unrefrigerated for two weeks with very minimal bacterial count reduction.
Independent Lab Test Results.
We have been testing the potencies of our probiotic supplements by INDEPENDENT Laboratories for the past 12 years. We ship our probiotics to the lab the same way we ship to our clients, without ice, winter or summer.
Our latest independent lab test results are shown below.
Six Strain Probiotic Powder: 480 billion cfu’s per gram
Eleven Strain Probiotics Powder: 440 billion cfu’s per gram.
The potencies indicated on our labels are almost half what the lab test results. This is a very conservative estimate, expected at the time of expiration, which is one year from the date of manufacture.
What happens if the probiotics stay out of the refrigerator for a few days?
The loss is very minimal. We have done 2 year temperature stability testing on it. We overdesign our probiotics so that the loss will not effect the potency indicated on the label. One can travel with our probiotics for 2-3 weeks without refrigeration. It is best however to keep probiotics refrigerated for optimum potency.
