Custom probiotics were developed by Harry Bronozian, a chemist and a chemical engineer, who personally suffered from Helicobacter Pylori, the bacteria that causes ulcers, for eight months and Candida for ten years. His Candida and H. Pylori were under control within five months of regular use of his ultra-high potency probiotics and he took about 500 billion cfu’s per day. In fact, an endoscopy and biopsy indicated that H. Pylori was completely eliminated from his intestine.
Custom probiotics are unique in the fact that they are very high potency. CP-1 contains a guaranteed 60 billion per capsule at the date of expiration, which is 1 year. Independant testing has shown a count of 98 billion per capsule at the time of manufacture. With half of those species being 3 different acidophilus species and the other half being 2 different bifidobacterium species.
When you have been suffering from candida yeast for any length of time and it has become chronic, you might not have any good bacteria left. I have been told, and have seen, by clients that their stool tests came back showing no acidophilus or bifidobacteria! It is all GONE!
Think about this for a minute. If you have roughly 100 trillion bacteria in your intestines, and acidophilus makes up about 30 to 35% of that, and if you have lost half of that you have lost 17 trillion good bacteria. If your test comes back showing half levels of bifidobacteria, then you have lost 35 trillion bacteria. That is 17,000 and 35,000 billion. Now do you think taking a probiotic with 1 billion live bacteria is going to do you any good? Do you think 10 billion will work?
You need to take as large a dose as you can stand and that dose is going to vary by individual. I'll get to how to achieve the right dose in a minute, but first I want to outline the species and what they do in Custom Probiotic formulas.
The Bacterial Species found in Custom Probiotic CP-1
Lactobacillus acidophilus breaks down nutrients during digestion and assists in the production of folic acid, niacin, and seperates amino acids from bile acids which can be used again by the body. This breakdown process produces hydrogen peroxide that makes the intestinal and vaginal environment unsuitable for unfriendly organisms such as bad bacteria and candida.
L. acidophilus has been found by the University of Nebraska to reduce the incidence of E. coli by 61% when it was added to cattle feed and fed to the cows. The University of Oklahoma found it helped in reducing serum cholesterol levels. The University of Kentucky confirmed a 10 to 12% reduction in risk of heart disease in individuals with high cholesterol levels.
Lactobacillus acidophilus makes up 20% of the intestinal bacteria and is the most prevalant species in the vagina. In both environments it produces hydrogen peroxides that kill harmful pathogens and candida yeasts while raising the ph, which further controls harmful pathogens.
Lactobacillus Rhamnosus was originally isolated from the human intestinal tract, it belongs there like L. acidophilus does. It supports the activity of t-cells and lymphocytes, which are natural killer cells in the immune system. It is found primarily in the small intestine and stomach and smaller amounts are found in the large intestine. In the large intestine its creates a favorable environment for B. Bacterium to attach and proliferate.
It is a very strong species and can survive where most other bacterial species cannot. It has been shown to have antitumor activity and prevents food allergies from leaky gut syndrome. It also inhibits the growth of bad bacterial species.
Lactobacillus Plantarum was originally isolated in human saliva. It has been found to clear up to 95% of the symptoms associated with IBS if high enough doses are taken. It boosts immune function in the intestine and helps with high cholesterol and heart disease.
Bifidobacteria is the most prevalant species of bacteria in the large intestine and has many substrains that we use for natural candida cleansing. Custom Probioitcs CP-1 contains the two species below.
Bifidobacteria longum is an extremely hardy strain and is resistant to antibiotics. That doesn't mean that antibiotics won't kill them because they will, especially with extended use. It has been found to reduce serum cholesterol and raise macrophage levels. Macrophages are a natural killer cell that cleans up waste in the body along with fighting candida yeast. It inhibits and fights bad bacteria as well.
Bifidobacteria Bifidum has been found to stimulate macrophages and activate lymphocytes to produce antibodies against foreign pathogens. It also increases the production and function of t-cells and natural killer cells which suggests it has antitumor and antifungal abilities. In tests on mice it was found to induce apoptosis to colorectal cancer tumors and to prevent them from spreading.
The increased immune function that the custom probiotic bacteria provide helps kill your yeast overgrowth and restore intestinal ph to where it should be. Natural killer cells
when functioning correctly can kill a fungal cell in 6/100ths of a second. The macrophages will remove the dead waste and the good bacteria then attaches to the intestinal lining to form colonies, which keeps the candida from re-attaching to the intestinal wall bringing it under control.
These bacteria spread to all the mucousal linings in the body as the intestinal system becomes balanced and harmful pathogens are brought under control. The intestinal ph in the intestines becomes more acidic, like it is suposed to be, and compacted wastes are removed from the colon. In the vagina it produces hydrogen peroxides that kill yeast and other foreign pathogens that causes vaginal yeast infections, bacterial vaginosis, and urinary tract infections.
All custom probiotics formulas do NOT contain: Dairy, preservatives, sugar, gluten, soy, wheat, artificial colors, flavors or FOS. CP-1 does contain microcrystalline cellulose, a non-digestible, completely hypoallergenic fiber which is used as a carrier.
Custom probiotics do not have to be refrigerated but doing so extends the shelf life. Testing revealed virtually no difference in bacterial counts for 6 months. This indicates this product will not grow molds in the body or spoil.
Custom probiotics CP-1 is a great product for vaginal yeast as well as intestinal candida. It can be used as a suppository or colonic very easily to help boost bacterial levels very quickly. I would also of course take it by mouth. It is also fantastic for kids and works very quickly to get rid of their yeast infections.
Finding the Right Probiotic Dose With Custom Probiotics
Anyone that knows anything about probiotics will tell you that you must take at least 10 billion bacteria per day if you want to achieve any kind of health benefits. This dose is for healthy individuals, not for people that suffer from candida infections. So the dose needs to be much higher if you do have any kind of yeast infection or candida.
If you decide to use custom probiotics CP-1, I suggest starting at 1 capsule two times a day for 3 or 4 days. Take with clean water, not tap water with chlorine, at bedtime and in the morning on an empty stomach. After the 4 days double the dose to 2 capsules two times a day. After those eight days add two more capsules for a total of 6 capsules a day for 5 days.
At any time in this cycle of increasing the dosage you may experience stomach cramping or slight constipation. This is normal because the probiotics are cleaning you out and restoring balance. These cleansing symptoms usually goes away in about 5 days or so.
You keep raising the doses until you do achieve at least 2 bowel movements a day which usually occurs somewhere between 60 to 450 billion bacteria or 1 to 9 capsules. The dose varies from person to person because no two peoples bacterial profile is the same, it is unique like a fingerprint. Some of us also have done more damage to ourselves as well and it takes higher doses to recover.
I achieved two bowel movements a day when taking 2 caps in the morning and 2 caps at night. I probably could have improved this or had better success with a lower dose if I had taken digestive enzymes with meals
Once your candida yeast infection is gone and if you choose too. You can drop the dose back down to 2 or 3 capsules a day as maintenance so you never get these infections again, and to maintain balance and proper digestive function in your intestine.
These high doses will help get rid of your yeast infection for good and restore your bacterial and intestinal ph levels to normal.
