Prebiotics, Probiotics and Your Gut Health, Part 1


Being healthy, eating healthy and enjoying it don't have to be a drama. As I've said a lot, it doesn't have to be boring to eat healthy. Well...it doesn't have to be a drama to be healthy overall. 

Sometimes I sit and think,'how can I tell folks you don't have to be some health guru chanting incantations, running and doing exercise equipment until you look like a barbie whose 'anorexic'. Granted running, walking and exercise is great and again doesn't have to be a drama that about kills you. Let's start where we are, make a commitment to health and get started one step at a time.
Am I an idealist who is giving you lofty ideas that healthy is easy? I have an ideal that 'healthy' is possible! Making a commitment on your terms and where your at is challenging and not always easy. 

Hope that helps you know I'm not putting out some 'pie in the sky ideas' for you to grab a hold of. 


 Forever Probiotics
One very important item I want to focus on for our health right now is 'Probiotics', meaning 'for life' in greek.
You probably are aware of probiotics and their on about every major store/pharmacy shelf these days as well as in your drugstore. 

I started with probiotics and learning all about them after being on antibiotics and steroids for months at a time due to my lung condition.
My stomach has been so bloated and distended and my digestive system was a mess. Acid reflux and indigestion was awful. I was desperate for answers for 
resolving what was wrong. 

So what about probiotics.
Probiotics help our body absorb healthy nutrients and aid in food digestion. Probiotics are microorganisms that contain good bacteria enabling our digestive system to function properly. 

One of most common strains of probiotic is lactobacillus.
Lactobacillus changes the acid in our gut to prevent the growth of harmful germs.

Probiotics are kind of delicate and things like heat and acid in our stomach can destroy them rending them useless.

So how can we avoid our probiotics being destroyed before they do what their intended to do?

Prebiotics are the answers to this problem. I call Prebiotics the right hand man of Probiotics.

Carbohydrates are prebiotics that can pass directly through your digestive system and are food to the probiotics. Prebiotics are found in some fiber rich foods such as artichokes, whole grains, soybeans, and bananas.
Our bodies don't digest these plant fibers rather delivers them to our gut where the probiotic bacteria are nourished in the large intestine and colon and this keeps our intestines healthy. In addition, Forever Aloe Vera acts as a
prebiotic with the probiotics.
Probiotics have to stay alive in our body to be effective and they need a food source to survive.
So without the prebiotics the probiotics can't survive and remain effective.

When prebiotics and probiotics work together in synergy the probiotics can work effectively.

The American Dietetic Association reports that
when prebiotics and probiotics are taken together
immune  function and digestion are greatly improved.
Also there is a decrease in intestinal infections.

 Forever Probiotics


An overview of Probiotics, Prebiotics and Forever Probiotics:
Microbes are live microorganisms that exist in our bodies and play a role in our general health and well being. While some microbes are bad, the majority are beneficial. These “good bacteria” are called “probiotic,” meaning “for life” in Greek. Forever Living Products® recognizes the important role that beneficial microbes play in human health and the need for probiotic supplementation. Designed to promote a healthy digestive system, Forever Active Probiotic® is a small, easy-to-swallow beadlet that helps overcome imbalances created by our food and lifestyle choices, which can inadvertently lead to a reduction in the amount of naturally occurring probiotics. Forever Active Probiotic® works primarily in the intestines where it assists with the process of food digestion, helping to release nutrients for absorption, and contributes positively to normal human growth and development by helping to maintain a balanced and healthy system.

As probiotics themselves are quite fragile, Forever Active Probiotic® uses an exclusive, patented encapsulation technology that protects the probiotics then releases a unique combination of six beneficial strains of microbes only after they reach the desired destination of the intestines. The probiotics in Forever Active Probiotic® are derived from Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium genera; the species are:

Lactobacillus Acidophilus
Bifidobacterium Longum
Bifidobacterium Lactis
Lactobacillus Rhamnosus
Lactobacillus Bulgaricus
Lactobacillus Plantarum


Forever Active Probiotic® is the only shelf-stable, 6-strain probiotic on the market today that requires no refrigeration. And what’s great about Forever Active Probiotic® is that it works in tandem with our patented aloe vera. Aloe acts as a “prebiotic,” which fosters the growth of and provides the ideal environment for the probiotic to function. So whether your goal is to promote a healthy digestive system or enhance nutrient absorption and immune function, add Forever Active Probiotic® to your daily supplement program.
  • Promotes a healthy digestive system
  • Enhances nutrient absorption and immune function
  • Unique combination of 6 beneficial strains of microbes
  • No refrigeration needed

Is AutoImmune Disease Robbing You or Someone You Know?

Is AutoImmume Disease robbing you or someone you know?
15 years ago we had some flooding in our area and I spent some time cleaning up. In the process I contracted MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus bacterium)

I broke out for months with sores that bled. And the pain...oh my gosh! I couldn't get one doctor to take the time to investigate let alone diagnose what was wrong. Gross I know but it was reality. The pain was excruciating and nothing topical was working. It was a pain from the inside out.
I was prescribed all kinds of medications in the doctors guesswork. No relief and no resolve. 

I couldn't even get off the couch and slept most of my days away.

My sister who is in the medical field found a doctor to work with me. He shared he didn't know what it was but it he wouldn't give up until he found the cause. And he did! After 2 months of driving 2 hours each way and resting a few hours to make the trip, he discovered it was MRSA. 

He prescribed the only …

Forever Living for Men's Physical and Skin Health

Forever Living has developed 3 steps to optimal Health and Energy for men.
Forever Living provides the best natural products for the entire family, men included.

Men and Women's physical and skin care needs are somewhat different.  Forever Living has taken care to develop products to meet the personalized needs of men. 
The USDA did a study of 37, 000 people. Close to half are deficient in one or more essential nutrients.  Our population not just in the US but globally are  'overfed and under nourished'. Why is this? Most have the mindset to eat to be full not necessarily with nutrition in mind.  What happens if we turn that around and eat nutritious to give our bodies all the things it's deficient in! How can we fix this when we know our nutrition supply and soil foods are grown in not as rich as it once was. Even though we attempt to eat well we will experience deficiencies. The answer is to supplement to take care of those deficiencies.
