    Default Probiotics Destroy Toxic Chemcals In Our Gut For Us

    It is an awesome fact of nature that we have trillions of organisms within our body – containing completely foreign DNA – some of which break down toxic chemicals that we humans have created to kill other things, but are now killing us, e.g. pesticides. Who are these strange helpers?
    Bacteria!
    Wait. Aren’t bacteria supposed to harm us? Aren’t they the enemy in the endless war against infection?
    Well, when our immunity fails, some can grow out of bounds opportunistically. But they respond to the environment within which they are raised, not unlike most other creatures. Provide organic, wholesome vegetables, for instance, and you have a hotbed of positive activity in your gut. Provide sugar, processed foods and an increasing burden of chemicals and it can get ugly in there!

    Great to know probiotics destroy toxic chemicals. Unfortunately, probiotics are constantly under attack from the proliferation of "anti-biotics," especially antibiotics used in our food supply. One way to help promote the growth of intestinal probiotics is to increase your intake of "pre-biotics." Prebiotics are found in foods high in fiber, like berries, bananas, green leafy veggies, garlic, onions, leeks, beans, whole grains, etc.
