We Love Probiotics!

We love making our customers lives better & we wanted to share with you some testimonials we have from real patients of Dr. Challa.

I’ve noticed immediate results since I have been taking Probulin for IBS. I’ve tried other products and nothing worked for me. I don’t feel as gassy or bloated anymore.– Ann, age 57

“Your form of probiotic, Probulin, has done tremendous things for me. I went from either having constipation for days to having diarrhea for days. My stomach is no longer bloated and I do not feel sick when I do eat. The biggest reason I know Probulin works for me is because my first bottle ran out, so I had to go one day without, and I got sick. I had very bad diarrhea, also I felt like my stomach was going to burst. As soon as I started your Probulin I instantly got better: no more gas, diarrhea, constipation, cramps, and nausea.” – Megan, age 16

“Before Probulin, I only had a BM once a week. I have been taking Probulin since the middle of June and it has been great. It keeps me extremely regular. Thank you so much.” – Sherri, age 41

“Probulin has reduced the tightness and swelling in my stomach, as well as regulating bowels, so that now I can go out to eat with my friends again. It has balanced my system all-together. I am now taking Probulin regularly.” – Joyce, age 79

Probiotics & Autism

Do you know someone with autism?  You probably answered yes to this question because the number of children with autism in the United States continues to rise. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 1 in 88 American children has autism, when a decade ago the estimate was about 1 in every 150 children.  This is a 78% increase over 10 years.

Moises Valsquez-Monoff, author of a recent editorial in the New York Times says it all has to do with inflammation and the immune system during pregnancy. While the woman is pregnant, inflammatory antibodies which are designed to fight off invading organisms, seem to damage the babies’ brain development in a way that leads to behavioral problems that are consistent with autism.

In today’s world, our immune systems have come unhinged, which has given rise to high rates of autoimmune diseases and allergies that are linked to autism. There has been growing interest in the use of probiotics as a natural way to restore the balance of good bacteria in the gut. Studies have shown parents of autistic children reporting vast improvements in behavior with the use of probiotic supplements. Adding probiotics to their diet improves their digestion which then may improve behavior.

Note: contact your pediatrician or family physician before giving your child probiotic supplements.

Probiotics for Dummies: It’s on the Market!

We at Probulin are excited to see the Probiotics for Dummies book go on sale this week! This book is a great introduction to the subject of probiotics, and breaks the subject down into language we can all understand. It highlights all the evidence out there showing that probiotics help people and also explores the research that’s in initial stages (much like we do here on Probulin).

One of my favorite chapters in the book highlights the different kinds of bacteria, both good and bad. For those of us not in the medical field, the names of bacteria can start to flow together as a mix of gobbledygook Latin words. Of course, the more you learn about any subject, the more those words start to separate into concepts and you get a true understanding of what the different strains of bacteria are.

Below are some of the bacteria listed in Chapter 15:

  • Bifidobacteria (Good)
    • B. longum
    • B. lactis
    • B. breve
    • B. animalis
  • Clostridium difficile (Bad)
  • Escherichia coli, or E. coli (Bad)
  • Lactobacillus (Good)
    • L. acidophilus
  • Helicobacter pylori (Bad)

Elsewhere in the book (and we’ve covered it here in our blog) author Dr. Shekhar Challa talks about how bacteria are named.

Understanding which bacteria are being shown to work on different conditions is important as you start to take a probiotic supplement. Probulin contains seven strains of bacteria, an important distinction because the more strains you take, the more you have an impact on the beneficial bacteria in your body.

Okay, our work here is done now that you know where to go to learn more about bacteria a capite ad calcem.

Excuse me? Oh, we thought you might be proficient in Latin now. What we said was that you know where to go to learn more about bacteria from head to feet or from top to bottom.

Guess we’ll stick to English. . .

Probiotics for Dirt? What a Great Idea!

Bokashi is a Japanese term meaning ‘fermented organic matter,’ and what it means for those of us who know about probiotics is a way to compost using bacteria. We spend most of our time here at Probulin concerned with the impact of good bacteria on our bodies and health – it was really cool to find out how those little microorganisms are being used in other ways!

Bokashi means taking a bucket, adding bacteria (usually in the form of purchased bran) and organic waste (think left overs you forgot about in the fridge). You let it sit for about two weeks and you have compost. There’s very little smell to this process, which makes it perfect for apartment dwellers or those who are smell challenged.

There are several websites selling the bran that contains the microorganisms and that talk about how to do this process in your home or even in your office. (One is here.  http://www.bokashicomposting.com/) One of the positives of bokashi composting is that it is able to handle egg shells, citrus, meats and other items that don’t work well when you compost with worms.

Research into using bokashi compost has found that the rapid preparation time (just two to four weeks, versus much longer times – even six months – for composting with worms) and the end product’s viability are great resources for your garden.

According to a report found here http://www.reap-canada.com/bio_and_climate_3_4.htm, “ Research with peanut crops has shown that crops treated with Bokashi fertilizer had higher growth rates, increased nodulation and higher yield than crops treated with chemical fertilizer.”

What a great, non-smelly way to use microorganisms to make your life – and our planet – better!

Makin’ It Through the Gut

One of the challenges of creating a probiotic like Probulin that we want to be effective and the best possible supplement to help our customers – that’s you! – is making sure the bacteria stays alive until it gets where it needs to go: your intestines.

Your stomach acids are pretty tough and darned good at tearing up whatever is put in there, whether it arrives in food or in a health supplement. (Unless you were one of those kids who ate pennies, and those probably passed right on through!) The highest quality probiotics are tested in a “simulated acid environment” to make sure the capsule survives the challenging stomach environment.

Probulin uses special gastric bypass technology, designed especially for us, to make sure most of the bacteria run the gamut of your stomach acid and are able to go to work in your intestines. This proprietary process minimizes the loss of bacteria to the harsh stomach acid; the probiotics are not released until after the capsule leaves the stomach.

That means those good bacteria get where they’re intended to go – and they can do the most good for you there!

Probiotics for Babies: Impact Seen Until Age 4

A study published this month in Clinical and Experimental Allergy found that infants exposed to probiotics (specifically Lactobacillus rhamnosus) from 35 weeks to age 2 were at less risk for getting eczema and rhinoconjunctivitis. (For a detailed report, click here.  http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/758431)

The “protective effect,” according to the article on Medscape, lasted until age 4. The probiotics were given to the mothers before the babies were born and continuing after birth for six months if the mothers were breastfeeding. Then the babies got the supplements directly.

The incidence of eczema was significantly reduced, backing up other studies that found the same results but had tracked the children only to about 2 years of age.

So at your next baby shower, you might want to consider giving mom a bottle of Probulin – along with, of course,  print out of the study so she doesn’t think you just raided your bathroom cabinet for a gift.

Avoid diarrhea despair on your next vacation!

It’s that time of year when many of us, stuck in cold climates with sleet hitting the windows, think of escaping to warm, sunny beaches. It’s also a countdown to summer when we take the kids and explore new countries, eat new foods and generally get away from the house.

But one challenge of traveling overseas is traveler’s diarrhea, which often occurs when we visit other countries. TD is considered three or more stools in a 24-hour time period when you’re traveling outside the U.S. It’s usually associated with cramping, bloating and occasionally nausea, and the source of infection is usually eating or drinking fecal-contaminated food or water. (How many ways can we say UGH online??)

But before you leave for your trip, make sure you’re taking your probiotics. Studies have found that Saccharomyces boulardii and Lactobacillus acidophilus are effective in preventing traveler’s diarrhea. Of course, you also have to stay smart – don’t drink local water or eat food you’re unsure of.

I don’t want you stuck in your hotel room when you could be out on the beach. But that’s just my opinion. Now go plan your next summer vacation!

Go with your gut,
