Gut Health is Critically Important

100 Trillion Bacteria in the Gut
The number of bacteria in the colon is about 10 times the number of
cells in the entire rest of the body. About 10 Trillion cells make up
the body. In a healthy colon there are about 100 Trillion bacteria.
The foundation of health in a mammal is the gut - a healthy gut
equals a healthy animal.
The HUGE number of beneficial bacteria in the colon suggests that a
correspondingly high level of importance be assigned to their purpose
there which is to maintain the integrity of a healthy, functioning system.
The massive colony of beneficial bacteria in the gut is not only 10 times
the number of cells that make up the rest of the body but they are crucial
components of a healthy system.
The 100 Trillion bacteria in a healthy colon are designed to:
Maintain healthy functioning of the Enterocytes that line the inside
wall of the colon and the Cilia that grow out of the colon wall and extract
nutrients from the food.
• Maintain a healthy balance of beneficial bacteria (90 Trillion or so)
to keep the pathogenic bacteria, like Candida Albicans, from over
populating, penetrating the colon wall, and escaping into the blood
stream to cause Systemic Candida.
• Remove excess moisture from the fecal matter and return it to the
The Gut is the CORE OF THE ORGANISM and is the primary basis for
creating health or disease.

A) Most of the Immune System (70% to 80%) is generated in the gut
wall so if the health of the gut is compromised the ability of the body to
defend itself is compromised as well.
B) The gut wall is lined with hairs (Cilia) that effectively increase its
surface area from 2 sq. ft. to about 1,200 sq. ft. If the cilia are not kept
clean and functional then the ability of the body to absorb necessary
nutrients from the food it eats becomes limited.
C) The Cilia also plays a part in returning excess water in the fecal
matter to the body. If they are compromised then loose stool or
diarrhea is usually the result.
The lining on the inside of the gut wall that separates the fecal matter
from the blood stream and the rest of the body is only one cell thick and
is made up of rectangular cells called Enterocytes that fit together like
little bricks.
Leaky Gut occurs when gaps form in the joints between the enterocytes
and fecal matter leaks out of the colon into the blood stream.
Leaky Gut can be caused by a diet that contains grain, potato, sweet
potato, or sugar in any form (molasses, sucrose, etc.) because these foods
all turn into sugar which feeds the ever present Candida Albicans yeast/
fungus and the fungus rhizomes can penetrate the joints between the
The overuse of antibiotics is also a cause of Leaky Gut because antibiotics
kill the beneficial bacteria which maintain the health of the gut lining as
well as keep the Candida fungus in check. It is very important for the
integrity of the gut lining to keep the healthy bacteria healthy and strong
which is why Brothers adds special Encapsulated Probiotics
and PreBiotics.
The constant flow of pathogens into the blood stream through a Leaky
Gut makes the immune system highly overreactive. In time it causes an
auto immune response as the immune system becomes hyperactive and
begins attacking healthy tissue that has similar amino acid sequences as
the partial proteins that are leaking into the blood stream.
Another problem caused by a Leaky Gut occurs when
Candida Albicans Fungus, which is naturally in every gut, gets through a
Leaky Gut wall into the blood stream and becomes a condition called
Systemic Candida.
When Candida Albicans leaks into the blood stream the condition is
called Systemic Candida because the fungal form of Candida is in the
blood stream and spreads throughout the entire system. Systemic
Candida causes no end of skin and fungus problems throughout the
body. It can change from hot spots to itching, to hives, to yeasty ears, etc.
Grain, potato, and sweet potato are a form of sugar that feeds the
Candida Fungus and helps it get stronger and do more damage to the
system. It is not practical to use medicine to kill the Systemic Candida
because it is too damaging to the dogs liver and as the Candida dies off
it releases toxins that will make the poor dog go crazy if it dies too
quickly. It's better to slowly starve the Candida back over a period of
three to six months so the die off is not too painful and uncomfortable for
the dog.

Once the Systemic Candida is weak enough the immune system will
eliminate the rest of it in the blood stream and your dog will be healthy
and happy again.
Brothers is designed to heal Leaky Gut over a period of 3 to 6 months
and prevent it from recurring in the future by eliminating the grain,
potato, sweet potato, and other ingredients that cause the problem in the
first place.
By adding Digestive Enzymes, long chain PreBiotics, and Unique
Encapsulated ProBiotics that deliver a thousand times more active
cultures to the gut than normal probiotics, Brothers helps the gut heal
and restore itself to full healthy functioning.
