The Ultimate Probiotic
The intestines range from a relatively alkaline environment (pH) of the small intestine to an increasingly acidic environment in the large intestine. No one strain of bacteria can provide benefits throughout the entire length of the alimentary canal. This is the reason that Jarrow Formulas ® Jarro-Dophilus EPS ® supplies eight different strains.
In the small intestine (duodenum, jejunum, and ileum), the primary lactic flora that can be supplemented are the lactobacilli , although enterococci are also present. The large intestine exhibits a large proportion of bifidobacteria in addition to its components of lactobacilli and enterococci . The typical intestinal and vaginal flora includes several different species of lactic acid bacteria that perform different activities according to the nature of their enzyme systems. In the case of carbohydrate processing, for example, Lactobacillus rhamnosus ferments at least 24 different carbohydrates: L. acidophilus , up to 16; and L.delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus , 7 different carbohydrates. This means that the lactic bacteria are important for completing the processing of carbohydrates in the gut. Bifidobacteria , which are located mainly in the large intestine, can ferment a variety of undigested carbohydrates, such as lactulose and oligosaccharides, and produce lactic and acetic acids. This provides the body’s “friendly bacteria” its best protection against unfriendly bacteria and yeast.
Probiotic bacteria are important aids to normal digestion and assimilation beyond the simple processing of carbohydrates. Some species of lactic acid bacteria contribute to the digestion of proteins, some deconjugate bile salts, some produce specific beneficial bacteriocins, while others enhance the immune response. The eight different species found in Jarro-Dophilus EPS are representatives of four different genera: lactobacillus, bifidobacterium, lactococcus, and pediococcus.
Jarro-Dophilus EPS helps to safeguard and preserve the health of the entire intestinal tract with a mixture of the most important lactobacilli species, including Lactobacillus rhamnosus, L. casei, L. plantarum, and L. acidophilus.
Bifidobacterium longum BB536 (Morinaga strain) has been shown in well-controlled clinical trials to stimulate immune response and to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria. BB536 also has been shown to reduce the production of IgE, which is related to a healthy histamine response. R0052 has been shown to support normal bowel function, as well as the enhancement of gastrointestinal health. Lactobacillus rhamnosus R0011 is a species, which prolifically produces unique polysaccharides which augment intestinal immune response and also facilitate probiotic colonization. Administration of strains R0052 and R0011 together resulted in more normal bowel responses in children. Pediococcus helps to minimize putrification in the gut and produces novel pediocins (antibiotic-like bacteriocins).
Requirements For Multi-Species Probiotic Success
There are several properties that are required from strains of lactic acid bacteria if these are to result in an efficient probiotic. No single strain can easily fulfill all these requirements. A mixture of species, therefore, is usually most suitable for supplementation. The most desirable properties of a good probiotic are:
• compatibility among the strains
• ability to survive passage through the digestive tract
• stability under normal gastric conditions
• resistance to bile salts
• adherence to intestinal mucosa
• colonization of the human intestinal tract
• safety with regard to human use
• production of natural antimicrobial substances
• antagonism against unfriendly and putrefactive bacteria
• stability during storage under normal conditions
5 Billion Organisms Per Capsule
At the time of consumption, Jarro-Dophilus EPS supplies 5 billion viable organisms per capsule (when kept according to recommended storage conditions through the “Best Used Before” date). Even very hardy species of probiotics must be supplied in sufficient quantities if they are to properly colonize the gut. Advanced processing techniques permit the production of very concentrated sources of probiotic bacteria, which have been carefully selected for their complimentary interaction with one another.
Enteric Coated To ProtectAgainst Stomach Acid
The acidity of the stomach forms an important natural barrier against the entry of bacteria and yeasts into the rest of the digestive tract. However, this same barrier can impede probiotic supplementation. Jarro-Dophilus EPS’s enteric coated capsules bypass the acid barrier and thereby optimize the amount of friendly bacteria to the intestines, giving superior results with fewer capsules.
- resists stomach acid

Healthy bowel function: how does normal poop look like?
What are the different types of poop?
By this time of year, it has become warm enough to spend more time in our gardens. We don't just spend time gardening, but will want to dine here, too. And possibly prepare food on the BBQ or at least prepare a food buffet on holidays such as Kings Day. Unfortunately, a festive meal especially during warm weather is almost automatically associated with stomach bugs.
For elderly persons, the cause of food poisoning is mostly different. They have frequently been raised in a time of food scarcity and are less prone to discard food that is past its expiration date. Or as happening during the current lockdown, they will want to go grocery shopping as little as possible, so they may be eating food that would have been discarded otherwise. However, at their age, they will become sick more easily due to reduced immunity than a young person who has less qualms about throwing out spoiled food.
Foodborne illness, more commonly referred to as food poisoning, is the result of eating contaminated, spoiled, or toxic food. The most common symptoms of food poisoning include nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
Although it’s quite uncomfortable, food poisoning isn’t unusual. According to reliable data 1 in 6 persons will contract some form of food poisoning every year.
Food poisoning symptoms
If you have food poisoning, chances are it won’t go undetected. Symptoms can vary depending on the source of the infection. The length of time it takes for symptoms to appear also depends on the source of the infection, but it can range from as little as 1 hour to as long as 28 days. Common cases of food poisoning will typically include at least three of the following symptoms:
How to prevent getting sick from the flu
You can prevent germs from making you ill in two ways: prevent entry into the body by careful hygiene, and if they do get in, make sure your body’s natural immune system is able to fight these germs, so they self-destruct before overwhelming the system.
Most flu germs are spread in two ways:
- touching such as hand-to-hand contact
- droplet spread when germs ride along on tiny water droplets that are sneezed or coughed into the air
Try these flu prevention tips to avoid person-to-person spread:
- avoid shaking hands, but bow or give a head nod
- avoid nose-picking as the nose is a breeding ground for germs
- sneeze into a disposable handkerchief and if you don't have one available, sneeze inside your elbow
- shun coughers and sneezers as much as possible.
- avoid crowded rooms
Oral health is a reflection of our overall healthOn March 20 we celebrated the International Oral Health Day'. According to the dentist Richard Kohsiek, who's a board member of the Royal Dutch Dental Association, we should think more often about the consequences of oral health as "Oral health is a reflection of our overall health".
What encompasses good oral health?
"In the mouth there are good and bad bacteria. As long as there is a prober balance between good and bad mouth flora, there is not much wrong. Things only go out of control when the bad bacteria outgrow the good bacteria. "
"Plaque is the white part that we see grow on our teeth is formed by a combination of bacteria and food remnants. Becasue these calcify it grows into tartar on locations where the tooth brush can't reach".
Dangers of antibiotic resistance
Anyone who has followed the health news for a bit, will know there is widespread fear about antibiotic resistance spiralling out of control.
Ever since penicillin, the first mass-produced antibiotic was introduced in the 1940s, bacteria have become resistant against antibiotics at an alarming pace.
Antibiotics are considered one of the greatest advances in medicine because they prevented a lot of casualties after formerly uncontrollable bacterial infections. Unfortunately, many individuals seek this prescription as the first line of defense. Overprescribing them has in turn resulted in the development of resistant bacteria. These bacteria don’t respond to the antibiotics like they might have in the past.
Can artificial sweeteners harm gut health and make you gain weight?Early September we published an overview of various natural and artificial sweeteners that are currently available and possible avantages or disadvantages associated to them.
Until very recently the clear-cut explanation of all official governmental dietary agencies as well as most mainstream dieticians was that artificial sweeteners are harmless and not a single iota of proof was available to the contrary.
Even your humble writer still believed sweeteners are relatively harmless as by definition, rats and mice aren't human so evidence about harmfulness for those laboratory animals doesn't prove too much.
However, over time more and more evidence has come up that artificial sweeteners are truly not as good for your waistline as you think they are, in ways that wasn't looked at before. Our gut microbes, which have a bigger influence on your weight and insulin sensitivity than we realize, are negatively inflenced by the artificial sweeteners we ingest.
Six tips on how to stay healthy at a BBQ
Eating outdoors as the weather heats up is one of the hallmarks of summertime activity, but before you fire up your barbecue grill or send out invitations to the family picnic, there are some precautions you should take to avoid a common occurrence: food poisoning.
Each year one out of 4 persons suffer from food borne illnesses as a result of eating contaminated food.
Preparing foods with unclean hands, eating undercooked meats, transferring contamination from raw meats to other foods, eating unwashed fruits and vegetables, and leaving perishable food out in warm weather can release a slew of bacteria, including E. coli and salmonella, as well as other food borne illnesses. This can result in nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or fever.
Here are six tips to stop food-borne illnesses from ruining your BBQ-fun
A healthy gut, a healthy brain
Few people realize how the amount of microbes residing in our gut between the mouth and the end of the large intestine outnumber the amount of human eukaryotic cells by ten to one. This complex ecosystem is formed mainly by bacteria, but also viruses, archae, protozoa and fungi.
Even less known is how gut microbes lays a major role in host health by shaping the development of the immune system, metabolizing dietary nutrients (such as fatty acids, glucose and bile acids) and drugs, digesting complex indigestible polysaccharides and synthesizing vitamins and bioactive molecules.
Throughout different life stages, various changes occur in the microbial diversity of humans.
While babies are massively 'inoculated' with microbes from their mother during birth, smaller amounts enter the baby's gut via the bloodstream and placenta.
After birth, the composition of the gut microbes in the infant changes slowly with age, and stays mostly the same until old age.
While the composition of the gut microbes don't change much in a healthy adult, that is not to say that they aren't vulnerable to outside factors, such as lifestyle, use of antibiotics or even vaccinations, and overall health.
However, outside those factors, diet is one of the most important factors for gut health.
A change in a diet, especially by eating more or less fiber can change the composition of the gut microbitics within a few days. When this change is negative, a dysbiosis can result, characterized by an overgrowth of potentially pathogenic organisms.
This change in the delicate balance between 'good' and 'bad' organisms will result in a 'leaky' gut because of a more porous gut lining and cause chronic inflammation, which can even influence our brain because it also affects our central nervous system. So, as incredible as it sounds, an unhealthy diet can cause you to have an unhealthy brain as well.
This makes it easier to understand why an increasing amount of people try to improve gut health.
What causes diarrhea?One of the most common diseases that plague us, especially the unseasoned traveller is the famous traveller's diarrhea. When abroad, we tend to suffer more than when at home as we encounter uncommon bacteria and can't always adhere to the same hygienic circumstances like we do at home.
Friendly aliensProbiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health, especially your digestive system. Probiotics help move food through your gut, and ease symptoms of (antibiotic-related or spontaneous) diarrhea and bowel diseases.
Furthermore probiotics can improve skin conditions like eczema, improve urinary and vaginal health. Probiotics are vital for our immunity as they are solely responsible for keeping the gut healthy.
