Regardless of recent spectacular progress and advanced research, we yet have to find the means to improve on the way Nature performs. At best, sometimes we are able to learn how to assist Nature in its fabulous deployment of life-giving forces.
SBO Probiotics Consortia is the result of precisely one of these efforts.    

Researchers have already evolved an extensive collection of literature dedicated to the composition and dynamics of Probiotics. Yet, some aspects still remain to be discussed in detail, lest the ultimate benefits of an effective SBO Probiotics Consortia not be assessed in their proper perspective.    

Several essays, written on SBO Probiotics Consortia, repeatedly mention bacterial enzymes. In order to gain in-depth understanding of these enzymes, it is necessary to first take a brief look at the source of these generous gifts of nature. Perhaps some of the readers will remember the basic principles of symbiosis taught in high school. The very concept of our profusely bespoken but scantily understood intestinal flora is based on symbiosis. 

Symbionts- participants in the process- regardless of size and species are living entities that contribute a substance or service to another life form’s well-being, and are rewarded by some service or substance that the latter offers to the former. The shark, for instance, has rather poor eyesight. Thus, it evolved a partnership, of sorts, with a tiny, multi-colored fish, that prances with its brilliant colors in front of the shark’s eyes and guides the shark to its prey. In return, after the hunt is over, the shark, having finished devouring its victim, will open its mouth and allow the little fish to pluck the remnants stuck in-between its teeth. Crocodiles and alligators have similar unionized arrangements with certain tiny birds. All these are perfect examples of symbiosis.    

Also, humans sport their own symbionts. For reasons we will not scrutinize in this essay, they go under the name of  “intestinal flora”. Now, not every species of such flora is necessarily desirable. Quite to the contrary, some are considerably noxious, cause diseases and even death. However, participants of the so-called “normal intestinal flora”- who contentedly consume only very modest amounts of nutrients available in the human intestinal tract-, are altogether capable of yielding substances or services the human body is not equipped to produce or to perform which, nevertheless, are paramount for several facets of its health. Now, considering that an average of two thirds of the nutrients consumed by these extremely useful participants of the intestinal flora originates in human waste, the notion of symbiosis becomes quite unequivocal and meaningful.    

Once the essence of the intestinal flora becomes clear cut, an inevitable question coalesces in our mind: since a myriad of human intestinal disorders are linked to the shortage and/or malfunctioning of our intestinal flora, why did research sidestep so nimbly the exploration of this mini-cosmos of microscopic allies capable of performing such wonderful services for our bodies?    

As a matter of fact, the general public is only vaguely aware of such microorganisms. If we browse through the shelves of any health food store, regardless of how well stocked these may be, the only component of the flora we can locate is the way over praised Lactobacillus Acidophilus. The vast majority of consumers don’t even know how many species are encompassed by the intestinal flora.    

Most are only aware of the acidophilus and that because it was virtually rammed down our throat by purposeful peddlers, determined do-gooders, well-meaning hypochondriacs and by the ubiquitous health pages of the media that dive-bomb the astounded reader with rare gems of science, considered by many the ultimate source of reliable medical information.        

Yet, none of these sources ever mentions any other components of our flora. We are always being given data about microorganisms in context of diseases and are steered to ignore other sources of bacteria. Why?    

There are also temporary symbionts that no self-appointed health-guru ever refers to which, nevertheless render priceless services to mankind while they last in the body. We refer to them as “temporary” because, while they do contribute greatly to the well being of the human body’s ambiance, the very environs they help improve do not favor the survival of their species. The bacillus subtilis, for instance, is most friendly to the human intestinal environment, yet, it is extremely virulent against all its infectious counterparts. It acts as a veritable biological broom that virtually exterminates all its infectious opponents. Alas, the pH of the human intestines invariably inhibits their rate of reproduction until, usually in a week or so, the orally implanted species becomes extinguished.    

​Then there are wonderfully useful soil bacteria quite capable of developing into temporary star performers of our flora, that produce entire collection of enzymes which are extremely important, not only to the defense of the human body, but also to assist digestion and the absorption of nutrients, as well as to regulate cellular waste disposal. Again, these cannot thrive in the unthankful human environs and so become extinguished shortly after performing their much welcome onuses. The good news is it that, since they are totally harmless and completely devoid of undesirable side-effects, they can be easily replaced by the simple means of ingesting a fresh supply on a daily basis.
