Infections, poor diet, stress, overuse of anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs), antibiotic use, and even chlorinated water can deplete or destroy the healthy bacteria living in the human digestive system. This can allow undesirable bacteria to flourish and severely compromise digestive function, nutrient absorption, intestinal health, and immunity. Of course, undesirable microorganisms also cause other various infections with their resultant discomfort, fatigue, bloating, constipation, etc.
Maintaining healthy intestinal flora should be a special priority for athletes
One well-known nutritionist states, "Unhealthy flora can result in the liberation of abnormally high levels of ammonia as protein-containing foods are digested. This irritates the intestinal membranes. In addition, the ammonia is absorbed into the bloodstream and must be detoxified by the liver..." High blood levels of ammonia are linked to fatigue and every step that can be taken to minimize excess ammonia production and accumulation should be taken. For many, many reasons, one of which is to help prevent excess ammonia production where it first manifests, the wise athlete will make sure the "gut is healthy" at all times.

Especially after a course of antibiotics (when ALL bacteria, both good and bad, are destroyed), or when extra strength support is needed (after an illness is a good example) using iFlora at 2 capsules per day for two to four weeks super saturates the body with the widest range and highest amount of healthy bacteria possible. This allows ideal re-colonization of healthy bacteria in the intestines and colon. We suggest taking iFlora upon arising, with water, and 30 minutes prior to food. Once this two-week course is completed you can certainly continue with iFlora. However, at this point the amounts even 1 capsule of iFlora provides may not be necessary and is more expensive than Digest Caps. Therefore we suggest using iFlora for two to four weeks then switching to Digest Caps on a daily basis as a maintenance dose.
