Probiotics Can Even Cause Infections

Perfect Biotics is a new dietary supplement manufactured by an American company called ProAmerica. It is a badly known manufacturer but it has its own official website. The latter is not very informative. It doesn't provide any information about the supplement's ingredients or its possible adverse reactions. The product is claimed to support the digestive and immune systems, to increase energy levels, decrease chronic fatigue, improve metabolism, remove gas and bloating. Perfect Biotics purposes to reach the ideal ration of "good" and "bad" bacteria in your gut - 80/20 balance. The product is said to restore healthy GI microflora, enhance vitality, relieve bloating and discomfort in the gut. But are these benefits true?

Human digestive tract is a habitat for billions of bacteria units - some of them are good, while others are bad. When bad bacteria outnumber the good, one may begin suffering from a number of digestive issues which can grow into big health problems. The Proprietary blend consists of thirty billion cells in fifteen different strains of the higher mentioned bacteria.

The manufacturer doesn't give any information on the list of ingredients contained in Perfect Biotics. As I can assume, it has a number of "good" bacteria for the human gut. And I am not mistaken. After I made a small research I found out the list of the product's ingredients. They are as follows: Bifidobacterium lactis, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Lactobacillus salivarius, Bifidobacterium breve, Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Lactobacillus paracasei, Streptococcus thermophilus, Lactobacillus brevis, Lactococcus lactis, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium infantis, Bifidobacterium longum. Other Ingredients include: Anhydrous Dextrose, Rice Maltodextrin, Stearic Acid and Vegetable Cellulose.

Perfect Biotics is said to be able to reduce the symptoms of inflammatory bowel conditions including Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Gas, bloating, and constipation can be relieved by Lactobacillus acidophilus. It also stops the development of harmful bacteria in the human organism. Bifidobacterium longum helps to boost the immune system and to fight a cold, some respiratory infections and the flu. It also possesses anti-inflammatory properties and reduces the development of allergies. The product's ingredients are also said to prevent the rise of cholesterol levels.

The manufacturer doesn't mention any possible side effects of Perfect Biotics, but we can learn them from online reviews left by true users of the product. The supplement contains some chemical additional ingredients and, to my mind, can't solve all the health problems connected with the work of gut. However, even natural components can carry potential dangers for health, especially when they are used in wrong dosages.

There are some allergy concerns. Perfect Biotics can cause allergic reactions due to the form of rice maltodextrin contained in the supplement. It can be risky to people allergic to rice. The product is said to be gluten free, lactose free, and soy free. The other ingredients include: vegetable cellulose, PerfectBiotics, and stearic acid.

ProAmerica does have some side effects. Many users have reported that during the first 2 - 3 days of taking the supplement they had a sensitive stomach and even experienced some belly pain. I think that this may be due to the great number of diverse bacteria. For this reason, this product should be avoided by people who have a sensitive stomach.

Usually, side effects of probiotics tend to be mild. Very often you may suffer from gas or bloating in your gut. Some people may experience more serious adverse effects. Probiotics can even cause infections that can be treated only with antibiotics. That's why people with certain health conditions should consult a doctor before using any new product including probiotics. The supplement could also lead to unhealthy metabolic functioning, gene transfer or overstimulation of the immune system. And finally remember, probiotic products are not considered to be medications, they are manufactured as foods.

"I'm already sick since two weeks since taking PerfectBiotics. The worst stomach pain that won't go away. It was soo bad that I went to the emergency room"

"I had constipated within 2 weeks of switching to perfect biotics"

"I've been taking Perfect Biotics for about a week and have to throw this product out. Colon stabbing pain, bloating, cramping, and spasms started... diarrhea"

ProAmerica can be ordered and purchased from a number of retail stores including Amazon, GNC and Walmart. However, I would recommend buying this supplement from its official website. Besides, the more bottles you buy the higher discount you are going to get. Thus, one bottle of ProAmerica (30-day supply) costs $40, three bottles (90-day supply) - $102.

I don't think that ProAmerica can take proper care of your health as it has a number of disadvantages. It is dangerous due to the high possibility of side effects. Its effectiveness hasn't been scientifically approved. Another disadvantage of the product is that it contains too many ingredients which can be not appropriately combined. Due to the wrong combination of the components the users may suffer from side effects.

However, the product is available on many websites. It is also suitable for vegetarians. I cannot recommend this product to usage as there are many similar supplements which would be more effective and less dangerous for your health.
