KNOXVILLE, TN -- (Marketwired) -- 01/15/14 -- Dr. Stephen G. Boyce, a board-certified Knoxville bariatric surgeon and developer of Bari Life Bariatric Supplements, says he is excited to add multi-probiotics to his line of bariatric vitamin products. According to a recent Stanford University School of Medicine study, supplementing weight loss surgery patients with probiotics can be beneficial for maximizing weight loss benefits. Dr. Boyce says after having a major surgical procedure such as weight loss surgery, the body can become depleted of its natural supply of probiotics. He says multi-probiotic supplements can be effective at restoring the body's natural levels of probiotics, helping the body to be healthier and function more normally following bariatric surgery.
"Current research tells us that prescribing probiotics for our bariatric patients after surgery can provide many benefits. I believe that probiotics significantly improves the health of my patients after surgery," says Dr. Boyce.
He says probiotics are the good bacteria in the body that keep the bad, illness-causing bacteria under control. Probiotics are usually found in many types of food, including yogurt and some soy products. Dr. Boyce says supplements generally contain a much more concentrated supply of probiotics than those found in food, providing a few million colony forming units (CFU's). He says in addition to fighting off bad bacteria, probiotics can be useful for bariatric patients by assisting in the prevention of diarrhea and irritable bowel syndrome, lowering bad cholesterol and raising good cholesterol levels, and supporting normal digestion.
Dr. Boyce notes, for patients who have had surgery for obesity to receive optimal health benefits, it is important to use probiotic supplements that contain multiple species of lactobacillus, such as L. acidophilus and bifidobacteria, as strains of these probiotics have been shown to improve digestion and have an extensive safety record for use in the generally healthy population.
"After researching probiotics, I found that many over-the-counter options for my patients were limited and expensive," says Dr. Boyce. "Through Bari Life, we created a shelf-stable multi-probiotic blend manufactured in the U.S. by a Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and Therapeutic Goods Association (TGA) certified nutraceutical manufacturing company. We can offer this complete formula to our bariatric patients at a much more affordable price than some of the over-the-counter products available. Bari Life Multi-Probiotics contain eight different bacteria per capsule containing 15 billion CFU's, and only one capsule is needed daily to restore the normal balance of bacteria in the digestive system."
Bari Life Bariatric Supplements also offers the only bariatric multivitamin formula that meets or exceeds the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery's (ASMBS) updated 2013 vitamin and mineral supplement guidelines, all in one bottle. Dr. Boyce notes: "These ASMBS guidelines are really important. These guidelines were established by combining the most recent findings of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE), The Obesity Society (TOS), and the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery." He says Bari Life Bariatric Supplements aims to provide high quality, complete, and affordable products designed specifically for the weight loss surgery patient.
Dr. Boyce recommends people looking to maximize benefits after weight loss surgery add a multi-probiotic supplement to their daily regimen. He notes the importance of using only those supplements that meet or exceed ASMBS guidelines.

With SaaS use rampant across organizations, how can IT departments track company data and maintain security? More and more departments are commissioning their own solutions and bypassing IT. A cloud environment is amorphous and powerful, allowing you to set up solutions for all of your user needs: document sharing and collaboration, mobile access, e-mail, even industry-specific applications. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Shawn Mills, President and a founder of Green House Data, discussed h...

Container technology is sending shock waves through the world of cloud computing. Heralded as the 'next big thing,' containers provide software owners a consistent way to package their software and dependencies while infrastructure operators benefit from a standard way to deploy and run them. Containers present new challenges for tracking usage due to their dynamic nature. They can also be deployed to bare metal, virtual machines and various cloud platforms. How do software owners track the usag...

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.

Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
