LactoPafi Probiotics’ Potential Against the A(H1N1) (Swine Flu) Virus

- Antibiotics only kill bacteria, not viruses
- To this day, there is no class of drugs that destroys viruses overall
- Some drugs, considered antiviral have side effects-
- The most effective approach to beating a viral invasion is to PREVENT VIRUS FROM BECOMING SUCCESSFUL once it enters the body
- Probiotic bacteria in our intestines are like vaccines – they help certain viral invasions from becoming serious threats-
- Probiotic bacteria have internal control factors to work against viruses. Without these controls, bacteria would have been extinct- Dr. Emmanuel Revici, founder of the Institute of Applied Biology in New York, believe that Lactobacilli secrete VIRICIDAL COMPOUNDS that kill viruses
- Dr. Emmanuel Revici, founder of the Institute of Applied Biology in New York, believe that Lactobacilli secrete VIRICIDAL COMPOUNDS that kill viruses
- One of these important viricidal compound in hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)
- Acidolin, also produced by Lactobacilli, also have both antibiotic and antiviral properties (successful against polio and cowpox virus as studied by Hamdan and Mikolajcik)
- Dr. Weekes, in a publication of the EENT Digest, showed the effectiveness of Lactobacilli against the herpesvirus
- A study at the Department of Medicine of the University of Washington showed that Lactobacilli may help in preventing the transmission of the HIV virus
- An in vitro study by a group of scientists (Ivec, Botic, Koren, Jakobsen, Weingartl, Cencic)  showed the potential of probiotics in tandem with macrophages in combating viral infection
- Probiotics also decreasing the severity and duration of rotavirus infections in children
- Lactobacilli have several beneficial effects on immune function by means of competitive inhibition and improving immune function by increasing the number of IgA-producing plasma cells, increasing phagocytosis as well as increasing the proportion of T lymphocytes and Natural Killer cells
