Simply put, probiotics are living microorganisms that assist your bodies natural balance. They can be delivered in a number of ways, but most often are found in live fruits and vegetables, liquid or capsule forms. One of their most popular functions is the promotion of intestinal balance and general digestive health, which means they also make a great compliment to your colon cleansing routine.
Colon Cleansing and Probiotics
In addition to removing unwanted waste matter, colon cleansing also helps restore the natural balance of your intestinal flora. That’s because cleansing helps to remove the harmful bacteria that compete with the natural flora for resources. Sometimes though cleansing isn’t enough — such as when the resident flora population is already too low. That’s when probiotics can really make a difference.
Some probiotics are transient microorganisms meaning they temporarily make a home inside your body. While there, they assist the positive permanent bacteria that lives in your body. It’s kind of like a good friend who stays with you when your sick.
Some Important Tips to Remember About Probiotics
By adding more beneficial bacteria to your body, you help to ensure that your system is able to better maintain itself after a cleanse is complete. When using a cleanser such as Oxy-Powder, It’s recommended that you wait until after cleanse is finished, otherwise, the probiotics may be flushed out before they can have any real long term effect.
Once you’ve entered into the maintenance stage of your cleansing program, you should also be carful to time when you take your probiotics so that they are not flushed out prematurely. Waiting 4 to 6 hours after you take your maintenance dose of Oxy-Powder is ideal. That way the beneficial bacteria has an optimal intestinal environment to work within.
Probiotics also assist a colon cleansing program by keeping the lower digestive tract ready for future cleansing. It’s cyclical. Cleansing helps the body prepare for the introduction of beneficial probiotic bacteria. And that bacteria helps prepare the body for deeper cleansing.
Which Probiotic Should I Use?
Finding the right probiotic to compliment your colon cleansing program can be a difficult task. There are countless cleansing options out there, and just as many probiotics. Unfortunately they’re not all created equal. Some work great, others do little or nothing, and others still have the potenially to do serious harm.
Oxy-Powder is safe to use with any quality probiotic, because it’s specially designed to be non-reactive. That said, we have noticed the best result using Latero-Flora, which is why we also include it in so many of our kits.
Latero-Flora uses a unique patented strain of Bacillus laterosporus derived from microorganisms found in Icelandic soil. It’s specifically engineered to help populate the intestines with the ideal form of beneficial bacteria to support optimal digestive health. We’ve also found it to be especially effective for people with food sensitivities and generalized gastrointestinal discomfort.
