Meanwhile, researchers continue to gather evidence affirming the importance of the gut to overall health.</p>
<p>More and more health professionals believe there is life and death in the long hollow tube called the "gastrointestinal tract." Dr. C. Everett Koop, former U.S. Surgeon General, indicated two out of three Americans suffer fatal health problems because of poor dietary choices. That means their problems are centered in their "gut":</p>
<p>What we eat may affect our risk for several of the leading causes of death for Americans, notably, coronary heart disease, stroke, atherosclerosis, diabetes, and some types of cancer. These disorders together now account for more than two-thirds of all deaths in the United States.'</p>
<p>The term Probiotic comes from Greek words meaning "for life," and refers to organisms such as the bacteria which contribute to the health and balance of the intestinal tract. The word, Probiotics, when used for descriptive purposes, covers all of those favorably disposed, healthy microorganisms such as the ones found in yogurt, kefir, sour milk, cheese, acidophilus milk, etc. They make up the major portion of the intestinal flora in a healthy person.</p>

<p>Life Science probiotic supplements combine strains of good bacteria that cohabitate in a symbiotic relationship, specialized for&nbsp;the acidic terrain of your lower bowel, while others are right for the alkaline terrain of your small intestine.</p>
