Each capsule possesses a culture count of over two billion colony forming units of Lactobacillus Plantarum from a pure plant nutrient base.
Refrigerate for optimum benefit
Plantadophilus doubles its population in less than five minutes making it stronger than any Acidophilus on the market. L. Plantarum is more stable and multiplies faster than L. Salvarus and other bacterium.
The benefits of L. Acidophilus and Bifidobacterium are well known. They aid in the balance of good bacteria in the large intestine and are grown and delivered in dairy products. Stronger and more powerful versions of helpful bacteria strains like L. Plantarum are grown on plant products. There are lesser strains like L. Salivarius which are similar, but lack the ability to multiply as quickly and are not as stable. Transformation has now released the product Lactobacillus Plantarum under the name Plantadophilus.
The oxygen generated lactobacillus in the Transformation product produces lactic acid as a main product from carbohydrates. Lactic acid encourages a more acidic environment which inhibits less desirable microorganisms. The pH balance of the colon is controlled solely by lactic acid.
Restated, there is an actual creation of highly favorable natural chemicals in the colon through the fermentation process of the lactic acid. Lactic acid lowers the pH of the contents in the intestinal tract and prevents the growth of harmful bacteria in the intestines. The presence of lactic acid at low but constant levels on the inner surface of the intestinal tract helps restore the normal balance of the intestinal flora. This is evident after taking only one capsule of Plantadophilus.
The byproducts of fermentation include natural antibiotics such as acidiphilin, along with very important digestive enzymes. This helps in the ongoing production of B vitamins and digestive enzymes and ensures proper digestion and absorption of nutrients through the intestinal villi.
The digestive enzymes play an extremely important role in the digestion of otherwise incompletely digested protein and other food substances. These beneficial bacteria are an important ingredient in the detoxification of the body. The organism L. Plantarum is believed to be especially productive of proteolytic enzymes, that is, enzymes that act on protein and clear protein wastes from the system.
For a number of years the media has had us clambering for more fiber in our diets. What we are not told is that the cellulase which breaks down the fiber has been removed from those products. The soluble fiber forms a gel-like matrix in the small and large intestine which delays the passage of food through the colon, forming gas and other problems. This gel-like substance creates malabsorption. L. Plantarum is an unusual lactobacillus in that it liquefies gelatin.
This means that the viable organisms survive the digestive process and produce an acid environment by glucose fermentation. The acid environment inhibits the putrid matter normally present in the intestines. This putrid matter produces toxic chemicals which make up intestinal putrefaction such as phenol and skatole, which for the most part escape the detoxification action of the liver. Having bypassed the liver, these toxins enter the general circulation where they can produce pathological changes in tissues, aggravate existing conditions of weakness, and put unnecessary stress on the immune system before being excreted by the kidneys. The toxins are small proteins which are easily absorbed into the bloodstream. L. Plantarum is able to act on these protein toxins while they are still in the intestinal tract, thus removing a major burden from the organs and allowing the organs to complete their natural functions with much greater efficiency.
It is this intestinal toxicity that creates a low immune system. Pockets and folds in the intestinal tract can be filled with toxic matter causing inflammation, infection and discomfort. Accumulation of toxins is common in colon diverticula and is responsible for diverticulosis and many other serious complications.
Due to the microorganisms ability to gain entry into the diverticular pocket, the presence of L. Plantarum may prove to be an effective treatment for toxemia caused by this condition.
Lactobacilli possess nutritive value. They promote the production of B vitamins in the intestine and assist in the production of enzymes which partially hydrolyze proteins, fat, and lactose and increase digestibility of like products. Physicians have used L. Plantarum with successful results.
According to the National Cancer Institute, lactic acid balance and lysine support are believed to lower the risk of cancer. The lactobacilli serve to sequester cancer causing agents before they can be absorbed by the body. Research done at the University of Nebraska shows that L. Plantarum synthesizes a large amount of Lysine. It is the balance between Lysine and Argenine that is critical for a healthy immune system. When Argenine is high, fungal forms, allergies and viruses are not kept under control. Conversely, when Lysine is high, the immune system is able to control herpes and other invaders. L. Plantarum helps maintain the proper balance between Lysine and Argenine.
In summary, L. Plantarum is capable of being utilized throughout the gastrointestinal tract. It digests harmful scavenger protein and has lysine which is essential for good intestinal balance. L. Plantarum assists the body in producing more of its own enzymes which support the immune system. It assists in the balancing of the body by eliminating toxins which removes stress from all organs, especially the liver. The acid base balance of the large intestine helps fight cancer linked bacteria and other degenerative diseases. Undigested food finding its way to the colon can be broken down and passed from the body before it can cause problems. With the toxins removed, colon disorders like diarrhea are controlled. L. Plantarum continues to grow within the large intestine creating a natural antibiotic.
For anyone suffering from malnutrition, spastic colon, stressed gall bladder and liver, toxic bodies and other maladies that are common in today's society, this natural antibiotic may be the answer. Until the body's imbalance is taken care of, the possibility of being truly healthy is greatly inhibited, if not impossible!
It is important to reiterate that Transformation, Inc. includes no dairy products in their enzyme supplements. Some confusion with the name "Lactobacillus" is understandable, but by definition this is a genus of bacteria. Lactobacillus Planarum is a pure plant source.
