You may have heard about “good bacteria” in Yogurt adverts and so on, but not everybody knows how much of a vital role bacteria play in the human body. It is impossible to overestimate the importance of our microflora (internal healthy bacteria). It is involved in digestion, immunity, mood, brain health and practically all aspects of the body.
This is not surprising when you understand the sheer amount of microflora in the human body. You have more bacteria living inside you than you do human cells. 100 thousand billion of them to be precise! More and more research is establishing the microflora-health link. It is part of a general shift to a more holistic understanding of the human organism, where no system can be separated from the whole. This was something well understood by ancient cultures but somewhat lost in the modern effort to separate and understand each system of the body. Thankfully, we are re-learning it now, and microflora is a huge part of it.
BENEFITS OF HEALTHY BACTERIA
It would take an entire book, or library of books, to spell out all the ways that microflora helps the body. But we will give just a few examples here. Most of the billions of helpful bacteria in the human body can be found in the intestines, this is where vital nutrients are extracted from the food you eat. The intestines comprise 23 feet of folded tubes covered in thousands of tiny finger-like, nutrient-absorbing villi, giving the total surface area of a football field! The microflora performs many vital functions in the digestive system. They break down indigestible proteins. They produce acids that regulate PH, preventing harmful bacteria from growing. They act as an army of tiny soldiers, fighting harmful bacteria by taking up their space, producing substances that kill them, acidifying the environment, and in some cases directly attacking and “strangling” the bad bacteria. Useful substances like vitamin K, B Vitamins, nisin, and lactic & acetic acid are produced by the microflora.
Digestions is just the start, the microflora plays a vital role in immune system function. Studies where animals are raised in a germ-free environment (so no helpful bacteria can enter them) show that their immune systems are compromised. There is direct communication between certain microflora and immune cells, and experiments with probiotic supplements show their ability to prevent and alleviate numerous diseases. The link between microflora and immunity is so great that it has led to a completely new field of vaccine research.
The gut-brain link is also incredibly important, with supplementation with certain microflora being shown to alleviate depression and anxiety. There is also some very promising research into microflora and Alzheimer’s disease (people with this disease have been shown to have a different microflora balance). The gut and the brain are connected, largely through the vagus nerve, and it appears that microflora plays a vital role in this communication.

Research is shown that microflora plays a role in Lactose-intolerance, auto-immune disease, allergies, fatigue, and many more conditions. It seems that if our balance of helpful bacteria is off, the body simply cannot function properly. This is because these bacteria evolved together with the human digestive system to form a beautiful symbiotic relationship. Our bodies supply the warmth and nutrients they need, in return, they support the functioning of our bodies.
Unfortunately, the modern diet and our exposure to various pollutants are playing havoc with our micro-flora balance. Comparing samples from ancient mummies with those from modern human shows we have lost many of the bacteria that kept us in an optimum state. Babies born in a hospital, or fed with formula rather than bacteria-containing breast milk are vulnerable to certain infections. In these days of rampant hand-sanitization, it seems like the situation is going to get worse.
RESTORING THE BALANCE WITH VITABIOSA
Taking VitaBiosa is one of the ways you can ensure your body gets the microflora it needs. It contains 8 different types, all of which have attracted significant research demonstrating health benefits. The strains are Acidophilus, Bifidobacterium, Bifidobacterium Longum, L. Casei, S. Thermophilus, L. Lactis, L. Rhamnosus and L. Salivarius. Please see our article 8 Bacteria You Should Know About for more details about these strains.
VitaBiosa also contains a blend of herbs, all with an ancient history of use, backed by modern scientific research. The herbs have been selected from their digestion promoting qualities and include many of our favourites. The herbs are: (aniseed, basil, fenugreek seed, nettle, dill, angelica, fennel, elderberry, ginger, chervil, oregano, parsley, peppermint, Roman chamomile, rosemary, sage, liquorice, thyme, juniper). They are fermented in the Probiotic solution which makes them more bioavailable, ensuring delivery of the active ingredients.
VitaBiosa is made using natural molasses, which is consumed by the bacteria strains, leaving no sugar left in the final product. The bacteria convert the sugar into useful organic acids which regulate the PH of your digestive system, preventing harmful bacteria from growing, and providing energy for the muscles and brain. While alkaline diets are very popular – and we recommend them – acid is needed in the digestion process to break down your food and prevent pathogenic bacteria from growing.
Consumers of VitaBiosa often report many benefits and give extremely positive feedback. Examples include dramatic improvements in Arthritis leading to increased mobility and quality of life, t reduced chemotherapy side-effects, better diabetes management, reduction of constipation, decreased nerve pain, and increased energy. Many people who take it regularly report a general increase in mood and energy.
It is recommended to take VitaBiosa every day, one more 20-30ml shots.
