"Food for Life"
The Web of Life, Probiotic means “for life”
Bacteria is an essential component of all life. In the human body, there are two types: pathogenic and non-pathogenic. For millennia, humans have relied on the non-pathogenic or "beneficial" bacteria found in cultured foods, such as yogurt, to maintain their health. All of Olympic's yogurt contain 5 active bacterial cultures including 3 active probiotic cultures.
Working for your body
When consumed, these probiotic cultures benefit the digestive and stimulate the immune systems by inhibiting the growth of undesirable microflora. Today, many people are adopting the ancient wisdom that recognizes that more than its great taste; cultured food products have an important role to play in creating a healthy, living body. And it should be a daily occurrence, because probiotics do not permanently stay n your intestine. This is why you need to consume them each day to enjoy their continuous positive effects. Naturally.
We've got culture
All of our yogurts and sour creams contain combinations of the following active bacterial cultures: Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Bifidobacteria, Streptococcus Thermophilus, Lactobacillus Paracasei Subsp. Casei, and Lactobacillus Delbrueckii Subsp Bulgaricus & Subsp. Lactis. Our certified organic yogurts combine all five of these beneficial bacteria. In addition, all of our yogurts contain 3 probiotic cultures. Why 3? Well, through our extensive research and development, the combination of these 3 probiotic cultures provide superior active strength throughout the lifecycle of our yogurts. This allows us to create for you a truly powerful and nourishing food! Each 100 ml will contain a minimum 1 billion live active probiotic bacteria.. . Wow!
What does Science say?
Current scientific research is investigating the links between probiotic bacteria cultures and their effects upon health: nutrition, digestion and disease. These findings suggest that active bacterial cultures help in the following ways:
- produce lactic acid and natural antibiotics, necessary for the healthy functioning and inhibition of pathogens in the intestines
- improve absorption of minerals (especially calcium)
- aid in the break down of lactose (milk sugar) making dairy products more easily digestible, particularly for those with lactose intolerance
- produce vitamins (namely, vitamin B & K)
- enhance immune function
- help to control serum cholesterol levels
- improve the nutritional value of foods ~ via nutrient synthesis and bioavailability
- may have a therapeutic affect on certain cancers. (www.usprobiotics.org, www.crdc-probiotics.ca)
