Intestinal bacteria

There are two types of bacteria to distinguish: useful, "friendly" bacteria, and bacteria for which the intestine has no use. In an ideal case, the different microbes of the "friendly" bacteria on the intestinal lining help, in a symbiotic co-operation, not only with the digestion of food but also insofar as they provide a constant stimulus on the intestinal lining – the "intestinal lining associated immune system". For example, Eschericha coli and other bacteria constantly attempt to overcome the intestinal immune system and penetrate through the intestinal lining. This stimulus on the immune system results in specific and unspecific immune processes which form a complete defence with the production of specific immuno-proteins, for example IgA. For this reason, a lack of coli bacteria, despite their possible harmful potential for the body, is undesirable. A sufficient count of lacto-bacilli is, for other reasons, desirable. They produce lactic acid, which contributes towards better absorption of food and positively influences the intestinal milieu: lacto-bacilli are as a lactic acid producer of decisive importance for the absorption of vitamins, trace elements and minerals.

Probiotic foodstuffs with different bacteria cultures have a generally positive influence on the intestine, whereas prebiotic foodstuffs are metabolised by the intestinal bacteria. It is true that the same sort of intestinal bacteria are present in every human, but when examined for specific biological characteristics the individual bacteria strains are different in each human being. It is thus sensible to "feed" prebiotic bacteria strains with "foreign" bacteria for them to consume, in the hope that they will settle on the intestinal lining.

Probiotic bacteria cultures, such as yoghurt, improve the intestinal-milieu but do not settle on the intestinal lining. C.G.F. has a primarily probiotic effect and consequently encourages the growth and protection of lactic acid producing lacto-bacilli which occur naturally in the body. When the bacteria count is reduced, for example after a course of antibiotics, the lacto-bacilli's reproduction rate increases as a result of the extract and their recovery from the attack from the antibiotics is speedier.

Because humans are at the end of the food chain, many heavy metals and other toxins find their way into the intestine. They either enter directly with the food or are concentrated in bile after passing through the liver into the intestine. Ideally, they would by excreted in the stools, without being reabsorbed in the large intestine. Because of their affinity to heavy metals, bacteria and fungi, which normally protect the body from toxins, easily lodge themselves in the intestine and so have a negative effect, damaging healthy intestinal bacteria and producing toxins.

With the help of its highly concentrated heavy metal binding proteins, C.G.F. binds itself to toxins and as a prebiotic extract, threatens intestinal germs. Additionally, it contains natural antibiotics from Chlorella, with which the micro-algae quickly attacks bacteria and fungi. They are harmless for humans and provide optimal conditions for the intestinal bacteria. Once bound to the proteins, heavy metals are no longer reabsorbable and are removed from the body in the stools.

Insufficient chewing, a fibre deficient diet, toxins and antibiotics damage, amongst other things, the intestinal bacteria. Intestinal bacteria can easily be overcome by carcinogenic substances produced in the intestine, increasing the risk of intestinal cancer.
