Probiotics

image Probiotics

Probiotics are also known as friendly bacteria and are live microorganisms thought to be beneficial to the digestion. Bifidobacteria and lactic acid bacteria (such as lactobacillus acidophilus) are the most common types of friendly bacteria used as probiotics. Probiotics are often included in fermented foods such as yogurt or as dietary supplements.

The gastrointestinal tract (digestive system) of a normal, healthy individual plays host to a large and varied population of microorganisms. This microbial population is delicately balanced and it is only when this balance is maintained that the gastrointestinal tract functions most effectively.

The quality of the body's intestinal flora is determined by the balance between the various microbial species, especially that between the two predominant groups; the beneficial bacteria (friendly bacteria) and the putrefactive bacteria. During time of stress, travel and illness, changes in the diet or taking antibiotics, the unfriendly, pathogenic bacteria sometimes overwhelms the friendly bacteria.

Probiotics are capsules or sachets containing beneficial bacteria such as lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidobacterium bifidum which help to keep in check the growth of gas-producing bacteria and support digestive health.
