As most of us know, food is normally digested partially in
the mouth, stomach, and finally in the intestine, where the partially digested
food is ultimately metabolized (broken down) by billions of microorganisms (the
Probiotics) working simultaneously, synergistically, and symbiotically with
other agents. What most of us don’t know is that that our body’s largest immune
system is our intestines, so in order to have a healthy immune system; we MUST
have a healthy gut. In order to have a health gut we need to have a healthy
population of friendly bacteria in the gut.
Under favorable, healthy conditions the Probiotics are
present in large numbers in our gut. These friendly bacteria do not just take
up residence in the gut. They live in symbiosis with our bodies performing many
important functions. As long as we provide the bacteria with a healthy food
supply, and as long as they stay healthy, these bacteria perform an important
function. In an unhealthy or diseased situation, pathogenic organisms dominate
and disrupt the healthy function of the gut.
Numerous researches studies have revealed specific
nutritional and therapeutic properties attributable to Probiotic organisms. In
simple words, the daily ingestion of Probiotics can improve your general
quality of life.
