BLife Mechanism of Action
Functions of BLife in the small intestines:
-Decrease the pH
-Detoxify and cleaning up the surface of the mucosa layer
-Increase the uptake of Essential Nutrients (EN)
-Restore the normal interplay between the Small Intestine and its own lymphatic system (Payer’s Patch System)
-Prevent Cytokine Storm
The signal system between our immune cells is one of the reason for sickness or the key to our immune health. The signals are high speed messages from cell to cell and must be 100% accurate.
From the signal system:
To the signal substance:
To the actual cells:
Coordinating with the entire lymphatic system:
Lactic acid producing bacteria seems to modulate non-specific cellular and humoral immunity possibly by stimulating lymphocyte and macrophage activity and modulating cytokine production by mononuclear cells. They also seem to decrease markers of hypersensitivity reactions and intestinal inflammation, such as tumor necrosis factor (TNF), and alpha-1-antitrypsin.
They stimulate the production of transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta), which protects against allergy. In cases such as atopic dermatitis, they might reduce serum levels of chemokines CCL17 and CCL27 which attract T-cells to the skin. They also appear to enhance synthesis of antibodies in response to microbial pathogens, particularly secretary immunoglobulin A.
Beneficial Bacteria and Yeast in the Colon may convert Cholesterol to Coprostanol for excretion, thereby lowering total serum Cholesterol levels.
Beneficial Bacteria in the Large Intestine cause the fermentation of dietary Carbohydrates (especially Polysaccharides) that results in the production of Volatile Fatty Acids including Acetic Acid, Butyric Acid and Propionic Acid
Beneficial Bacteria produce Hydrogen Peroxide (which is utilized by the body to “extinguish” neutralized Antigen/Antibody complexes)

The Small Intestine is the Key centre for proper functioning and support of every organ and the entire immune defence system.The Small Intestine converts the food to Essential Nutrients for all organs and cells.It has also its own immune defence system,the Peyer’s Patch lymphoid tissue, named after the 17th-century Swiss anatomist Johan Conrad Peyer. This system is critical in the signalling process and the control of immune responses.
