Probiotic for Periodontal Disease

Peridontal Disease helped with probiotics

Probiotic for Periodontal Disease

Periodontal Disease has become a hot topic in the field of probiotic research. A study that was published in the Journal of Periodontology 2915;86:746-754 references 30 patients who had chronic periodontitis and moderately deep pockets who were treated with scaling and root planing.

They were randomly assigned to receive, using a double-blind model, either probiotic lozenges two times a day, morning and evening after brushing their teeth, or placebo lozenges for 3 weeks. The probiotic lozenges contained Lactobacillus reuteri strains DMS17938 and ATCC PTA 5289.

Evaluations were performed at baseline and then again on days 21, 90, 180, and 360.

Compared to the placebo, probiotic treatment showed significant improvements in several periodontal disease markers like plaque index, gingival index, bleeding on probing, probing depth, and attachment gain at every time point.

Biochemical studies on gingival crevicular fluid showed a reduction in inflammatory markers in the probiotic group
What was also significant, the beneficial effect of the probiotic lozenges persisted long after the treatment was discontinued, which may be related to the alteration of the oral bacterial flora.

The Ultimate Guide to Probiotics

indexYou’ve likely heard about probiotics and the benefits they provide for the gut. However, even if you’re keen to jump on the probiotic bandwagon by consuming these substances regularly, you may not know the best way to harness their power for your health. We want you to know the most effective ways to reap the benefits of probiotics.

What Are Probiotics?

Before you start taking probiotics to boost your gut health, you should know a little about what they are. To put it simply, probiotics are microorganisms that live in your gut. They’re good bacteria, so to speak, that act as peacekeepers and keep a harmonious state of bacteria in the intestines. Probiotics are strains of beneficial bacteria that devour bad bacteria, the potentially harmful microbes that get into the body due to poor dietary choices. Typically, the bad bugs are introduced, and then flourish, when one consumes too much red meat, dairy products, fat, and sugar.

How Do Probiotics Work?

Good bacteria are naturally present in our body, but sometimes not in large enough quantities. Stress, bad dietary choices, illness, antibiotic uses, and other factors can reduce the amount of good bacteria in our guts, which means we have to supplement with probiotics. Often, it’s a good idea to take probiotics daily so that good bacteria counts remain high.

So, what exactly do probiotics do? How do they work in the body to keep things balanced and healthy? The following are just a few functions of probiotics or good bacteria:

  • Probiotics evaluate the gut environment. They go into the intestines and find out what’s needed. They respond by either easing inflammation or boosting your immune response.
  • Probiotics negotiate with invaders. They don’t always need to wipe out “terrorists” or bad bacteria. But they do have to make sure that these invaders can’t release their poisons into the gut environment.
  • Probiotics improve the intestinal barrier. Without being too dramatic, there is just one thin barrier of cells standing between the toxins in your intestines and your blood stream. Probiotics improve the quality of this lining so that healthy nutrients can get in but the bad stuff stays out.

The above are just a few of the benefits of probiotics. These friendly bacteria also clean up biofilm due to infections, and they starve off pathogens by eating up all the food that the bad guys would. It’s important to realize that probiotics are temporary helpers. They don’t live forever, so you have to keep them safe by eating a clean diet, and you’ve got to make sure they’re replaced consistently.

Taking Perfect Pass Probiotics is a great way to do just that. Perfect Pass Probiotics helps you prevent and manage GI issues by giving the gut a constant supply of beneficial bacteria.

Dr Mark Hyman on Prebiotics and Probiotics

Dr Mark Hyman MD was a guest speaker on the Dr Oz show.

Dr Mark Hyman on Prebiotics and Probiotics

Guess what Dr Oz and Dr Mark Hyman were talking about on the  Dr Oz show last week? …. the value of probiotics and prebiotics food in helping to repair your gut!

Aside from explaining, in detail, how prebiotics are the perfect food for our microbiota,  he also continued to explain the benefits of probiotics in maintaining a healthy digestive environment.

Dr Hyman also shared his 14 day “Gut Check Plan” with 3 key features:

– Remove
– Replace
– Repair

Week 1:
Remove 7 foods: dairy, wheat, all grains, soy, all beans, eggs, peanuts.
Week 2:
Add them back again, one each day and see if you have any problems with any of them.

Part of the ‘replace’ cycle involves replenishing the good bugs by choosing foods that have probiotics and prebiotics.

Mark Hyman commented on how people are not that familiar with prebiotics, how they provide the perfect fertilizer for our friendly organisms to thrive and how important they are.

Yes, I agree!

Max: My Experience with Probiotics

Max

My name’s Max Thomas, and I’m 47 years old. I’m very much about staying healthy, and I’ve been using probiotics for nearly 20 years.

My system leans toward a yeast imbalance, which sometimes appears symptomatic of candidiasis. At times, I’ve experienced symptoms of other illnesses that typically are associated with a weakened immune system, which some doctors have linked back to a yeast imbalance.
