Nurturing Your Probiotic Environment – Steve Lankford Interview with Josée Fortin

by A. Vogel USA, on 21 February 2017, Digestion, Health

Your good bacteria needs the proper environment to thrive

In this article we are sharing a Podcast done by Steve Lankford of Health Quest Podcast. Health Quest Podcast examines the science of nutrition and it’s application to good health. The research in nutrition is expansive and powerful. It is also sometimes confusing and challenging to understand. Steve interviews the nation’s most respected and knowledgeable experts and brings the science to his audience in a compelling and yet understandable form.

In this podcast Steve is interviewing Josée Fortin, a Naturopath and Biochemist with a degree in Biochemistry from University of Ottawa and is a member of the Association des Naturopathes Agréés du Québec (ANAQ).



Steve Writes About the Podcast:

‘This is an interesting interview for several reasons. First and foremost it is about how to improve the environment of our gut. We have had many interviews about the importance of probiotics. This interview is about changing and maintaining the proper pH of the colon which is the best for our microbiome. No matter which probiotic you use, or even if you don’t take a probiotic supplement, you can benefit from nurturing your microbiome’s environment. 

We will explore one of A Vogels products Molkosan. Molkosan is a prebiotic made from a concentrated whey rich in L+ Lactic Acid. Molkosan is one of Alfred Vogel’s original remedies. Made from whey obtained from organic milk, Molkosan is rich in a substance known as L+ lactic acid which is now known to support the growth of good gut bacteria. In this way, it acts as a prebiotic. It does this by creating the proper and desirable colon pH. Proper pH = happy bacteria which will flourish better. This is different from prebiotic fibers which serve as food for the bacteria. This is more about the environment of the gut. It is also important to note that bad bacteria do not like L+ lactic acid.

Molkosan is made from fresh organic whey using a special fermentation process involving lactic acid producing bacteria. It is rich in L+ lactic acid – a substance which improves the environment for friendly gut bacteria. Whey has a long history of use in healthcare and was known as far back as the time of Hippocrates (400 B.C.). In the 18th Century, whey enjoyed a renaissance, securing an enviable reputation and became popular with visitors to health resorts such as those in Gais, Switzerland, which was frequented by European royalty.

In the past, the trend has been to use probiotics for digestion problems. However, the difficulty is that if the internal environment hasn’t changed, probiotics will be killed off just as the original friendly bacteria were. Using prebiotics such as Molkosan to improve the internal environment of the gut increases the likelihood that a probiotic supplement will work well.

If you have gut issues, this is one product that can make a difference in one month, sometimes less. It works whether you take a probiotic or not. You have the opportunity to discover an answer to your distress in a short time. Try it and discover for yourself.’
