liver-protection-and-prohormones

In the modern world of prohormones and designer steroids that are processed by the liver, it’s becoming increasingly important to understand the effects of these compounds on our livers and how to mitigate some of these concerns by providing our liver with adequate protection. In particular methylated compounds pose an increased risk to liver health, while there are many popular non methylated prohormones available, methylated compounds are generally

Probiotics and liver protection

probiotics

Probiotics Probiotics are dietary supplements which contain beneficial bacteria. The most commonly used is lactic acid bacteria. Since they are capable of transform sugar (including lactose) and carbohydrate to lactic acid, they have long been used in food industry. The most common probiotic bacteria belong to the strain of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. Probiotic bacterial cultures help restore gut flora. Since 70% of the immune system can be found in the intestines, the restoration of gut flora is essential for the immune system in order to be able to work properly. Lactobacillus Acidophilus Lactobacillus acidophilus is a species of gram positive bacteria in the genus Lactobacillus. L. acidophilus is a homofermentative, microaerophilic species, fermenting sugars into lactic acid, and grows readily at rather low pH values (below pH 5.0) and has an optimum growth temperature of around 37 °C (99 °F). L.acidophilus occurs naturally in the human and animal gastrointestinal tract and mouth. Some strains of L. acidophilus may be considered to have probiotic characteristics. These strains are commercially used in many dairy products, sometimes together with Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus in the production of acidophilus-type yogurt. Some strains of L. acidophilus have been studied extensively for health ...
