A picture is worth a thousand words... or a trillion microbes! "Probiotics" is a difficult and wordy concept to explain: "live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host." Huh?
What if you had an entertaining and factually accurate DVD that could do the job for you? You could teach (or learn) about probiotics the easy way, watching lively graphics and hearing the story of probiotics directly from world-class experts! Health Point Productions has recently released just such a DVD: Microwarriers. The Power of Probiotics. You can learn a lot just by watching the trailer:
See what I mean? The movie really brings the miniature and powerful world of our microbial life-partners up to a size that anyone can see and understand. The experts interviewed in the movie are the real deal. I heard two of them, Dr. Mary Ellen Sanders and Dr. Martin Floch, speak just last month at the Yale Workshop on Advances in Probiotic Use.
If you want to learn more about the relationship between humans and bacteria, and about the manufacture and use of probiotic foods and supplements, you might like to own this 53-minute movie. If you are a health care provider or an educator, this movie makes a great teaching tool, and would be an excellent addition to your professional media library.
