Sample Sentences & Example Usage
We all have bacteria, yeasts and other types of microbes living in our digestive tracts and many strains of these actually provide a benefit — that's why fermented foods and probiotics are so healthy, but excessive sugar intake can throw off the balance leading to an overgrowth of normally occurring yeast and pathogenic bacteria. This can have a negative effect on our energy, skin, immune function, mood and many other consequences.
Well, we've seen in our research that the honey bees actually add great flora of lactic acid bacteria in honey so the mead, when produced, is actually fermented by these lactic acid bacteria together with wild yeasts and the lactic acid bacteria can really kill off all the dangerous pathogens that are even resistant against antibiotics. So our thinking is that the mead, when you consume the mead, these (antibacterial substances in) lactic acid bacteria in the drink can actually be transferred to your blood and help you when you are infected with dangerous bacteria or promote health, preventing infections.
