Why use for bone density
Probiotic supplements halve the rate of bone loss, which can lead to osteoporosis and fractures, two big health worries as we get older, and especially for women after the menopause.
The supplements populate the gut with ‘good’ bacteria, and it’s yet another example of the way the gut regulates our health. The discovery is a “paradigm shift” in the way we protect our bones, say the researchers.
Most women over the age of 80 suffer from osteoporosis, or brittleness of the bones, which means that the slightest fall can cause a fracture. Drugs on the market can treat osteoporosis to some extent, but they are often prescribed only after bone loss is detected. But women who take a probiotic for at least a year have half the bone loss of similar women who don’t take the supplement, researchers from Gothenburg University in Sweden have discovered.
They tested a powdered probiotic on 90 women with an average age of 76, half of whom were given the active version and the rest had a dummy or placebo powder. After a year, CT scans that measured bone health in the lower legs of all the women discovered that those taking the probiotic had half the bone loss of those given the placebo.
None of the women taking the probiotic suffered any side effects or reactions.
It’s the first time that the effects of probiotics on human bone health have been tested, the researchers say. Up to now, studies have been restricted to laboratory mice. The probiotics used in the test contained Lactobacillus reuteri, a bacterium that has many health benefits.

APD II Probiotic Supplement
The formula is a high-potency formulation of eight hardy species of proprietary blend containing—10+ Billion CFU’s to alleviate their skin problems of the feet and yeast infections (candida) and soothe and/or alleviate urinary tract infections.
The formulas include Bifidobacterium lactis, which is a very important colonizing microorganism that produces significant amounts of anti-microbial formate. Also included in this unique probiotic blend is Lactobacillus rahmnosus and Bifidobacterium bifidum, both of which enhance the immune system and support gut microflora during antibiotic therapy. They both suppress the pathogens of potential E. coli and C. difficile, both of which are dangerous toxins. The formulation in this blend has profound effects on the immune system of the body, including the enhancement of white cell, tumor, cell-killing and phagocytic activities.
The probiotic species in the “APD II ” formulations synergistically produce additional probiotic microorganisms that lower the pH of intestinal contents and inhibit the growth of viral pathogens and bacterial yeast. The “APD II” probiotics produce B vitamins that help enhance the absorption of minerals and nutrients in the body.
The above-mentioned three highly potent strains of probiotics plus the five additional hardy species in our “APD II” formulations stimulate the gastrointestinal tract and the systemic immune system to function in a healthful and reenergized, pathogen free environment. At the same time, these formulations provide support for people suffering from fungal skin of the feet and yeast infections (candida).
Inulin base (derived from chicory root), vegetarian capsule (hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, water), and L-leucine.
Free of milk/casein, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat/gluten, corn, yeast, and soybeans.
Contains no sugar and artifical colors, flavors, or preservatives.

Take two capsules daily with cold water or as directed by a healthcare professional.
Scientific studies have proven this probiotic enhances your immune system including increasing immunity among the elderly, resisting middle ear inflammation, lowering respiratory diseases reducing colds and flu, curtailing allergies, increasing blood glucose control, improving digestion, lowering cholesterol, and fighting tumors. It is especially effective in improving the skin from attacking fungus.
Known to eliminate and prevent the growth of harmful bacteria in the intestines, this probiotic stimulates the production of antibodies and assists your body to combat invasive bacteria, it also has a high tolerance for the strong acids found in the digestive system, allowing maximum strength for warding off disease and infection.
This is the most ferocious good bacteria, known to produce organic compounds including lactic acid, hydrogen peroxide and acetic acid that halt reproduction of dangerous bacteria. Yeast (candida) is crowded out when hydrogen peroxide and aecetic acid are present. It synthesizes B-complex vitamins & absorbs calcium. Another study suggests it helps prevent eczema. More recent research says it controls diseases caused by allergic reactions.
L. salivarius is a resident of the intestinal tract with good survival and adherence characteristics. Preclinical research indicates L. salivarius favorably modulates inflammatory and allergic reactions. Studies involving mice with allergy induced asthma, showed L. salivarius significantly lessened the airway obstructiveness. In studies involving mice with allergy induced asthma, L. salivarius significantly lessened the obstructiveness of the airway passages.
B. longum – biovar longum (referred to as B. longum) has been found to be able to eliminate nitrates form the intestinal tract. B. longum ferments a broad spectrum of oligosaccharides. It is resistant to high bile and salt concentrations. It inhibits human neutrophil elastase which may be important to innate immunity and attenuate harmful intestinal inflammation. Inhibits Enterotoxigenic E.Coli. It favorably modulates inflammatory cytokine response to respiratory antigens. It improves inflammation in ulcerative colitis.
L. plantarum helps produce lactolin, a natural antibiotic, and synthesizes L. lysine. L. plantarum is a highly beneficial transient bacteria generally lacking in people consuming a standard Western diet while universally present in people consuming traditional plant-based diets. Supports intestinal barrier function. Reduces translocation of gut bacteria. Antagonizes C. difficile. Supports normal microflora in people with irritable bowel syndrome. Plantarum was many years ago, a major part of people’s diet (found in sauerkraut etc.)
L. casei has been found to have protective activity against pathogenic listeria bacteria. Lactobacillus casei beneficially modulates innate immune responses. Increases the number of intestinal IgA-producing cells. Antagonizes Helicobacter pylori. Decreases cytokine secretion. Inhibits E. coli adherence to intestinal cells. Decreases Shigella-mediated inflammation.
Super-High acid tolerance. Ferments inulin and phleins and produces high levels of lactic acid. Antagonizes C. difficile and staphylococcus aureus as well as other pathogens. Contributes to a healthy vaginal microflora.
