How does probiotics help you?

How does probiotics help you?

The human body hosts a very diverse population of microorganisms, called the microbiome. These microorganisms are found in the skin, the uro-genital tract, the upper respiratory tract, the oral cavity and the intestinal level, without affecting the body. On the contrary, their role is to help maintain optimal functioning.

The gastrointestinal tract is colonized shortly after birth and it is estimated that over 1800 bacterial species are found in the intestine. Basically, the bacterial cells that colonize the intestine are 10 times more numerous than the cells that make up the human body. Probiotics are such microorganisms, which impede the development of harmful bacteria and help maintain health.

Therefore, probiotics are used as therapeutic resources because they are capable of conferring multiple health benefits. Positive effects are conferred by the ability of probiotics to colonize the mucous membranes when administered. There are also particular situations, when the therapeutic value resides strictly in the effects conferred by the probiotic-host interaction, without colonization with bacteria.

Fighting infections

The antimicrobial role of probiotics is based on their dual action. They act both through their own production of factors with antimicrobial role, as well as by stimulating the production of peptides, wholly anti-infective, produced by the organism that the probiotics colonize.

Probiotics have the ability to produce a broad spectrum of substances with antimicrobial role (such as short-chain acetic and lactic fatty acids, bacteriocins, H2O2), but also other substances that help probiotics limit proliferation, pathogenicity or even induce the death of pathogenic microorganisms. . In most cases, the antimicrobial protection effect exerted by probiotics is due to the peptides produced by them, called bacteriocins.

Bacteriocins have bactericidal or bacteriostatic properties, so they kill or stop the proliferation of harmful bacteria in the body, the positive effect being that, although it inhibits the development of pathogens, it does not affect the other strains that make up the organism's microbiome.

I support immunity

Probiotics help stimulate the synthesis of type A immunoglobulins, and this is the main mechanism by which probiotics are able to support immunity, that is, to participate in immunomodulation.

The studies document the increase of the general production of Ig A as well as that of IgA specific to a certain pathogen, as a result of the interaction with probiotics. This action is an extremely important mechanism for anti-infectious defense. Studies tend to advocate for the superior ability to stimulate immunoglobulin Ig A synthesis of probiotic supplement formulas that associate probiotics with prebiotics.

In addition to supporting the synthesis of type A immunoglobulins, probiotics have also been shown to modulate inflammatory processes and the activity of natural killer cells, NKs, which fight viral and cancer cells. Also, probiotics increase the efficiency of the barrier function that the intestinal mucosa represents, which is why it reduces the permeability induced by pathogenic microorganisms, but also that associated with inflammation.

Ensures normal digestion

Digestive disorders caused by the microbiome imbalance can be easily corrected by the intake of probiotics. Whether it's temporary imbalances, antibiotic use, or chronic conditions that lead to imbalances in the gut flora, digestion can be improved by probiotics. When choosing a probiotic, you need to take into account not only the number of probiotic bacteria in a capsule, but also the variety of their strains that ensure efficient action on a high number of pathogenic bacteria.

Unlike other probiotic products available on the Romanian market, Jarro-Dophilus® + FOS contains 3.4 billion probiotic bacteria in one capsule, grouped into the largest number of strains with different spectrum of action on the market. Romanian: 6. Also, Jarro-Dophilus® + FOS has the addition of FOS (prebiotics), thus acting up to the level of the large intestine.

In the daily activity, the synergistic action of probiotics and prebiotics in the intestinal mucosa ensures the balanced functioning of the digestive system. Probiotics mainly affect the small intestine, while prebiotics (FOS) potentiate the action of probiotics, increase the level of Bifidobacterium probiotic bacteria and act on the large intestine, accelerating food assimilation processes.

Bifidobacterium longum, Bifidobacterium lactis, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus plantarum and Lactobacillus rhamnosus are strains of "friendly" bacteria required for proper functioning of the body and present in Jarro-Dophilus® + FOS.

Probiotic bacteria in the Bifidobacterium class contribute to the fermentation of sugars and to their conversion into lactic acids, thus regulating the acid-alkaline balance.

Probiotic bacteria Lactobacillus owes its name to their role in converting lactose and other sugars into lactic acid. In the human body they are present in the gastrointestinal tract and in the vagina, where they act symbiotically with other groups of bacteria of beneficial intestinal flora. Lactobacillus inhibits the development of pathogenic bacteria in the intestines. The immunomodulatory actions of these bacteria, as well as their importance in protecting the body from various diseases and infections caused by pathogenic bacteria such as E. coli, are recognized.

Secom® offers you Jarro Dophilus + FOS 30/100 capsules, a state-of-the-art symbiotic with a leading role in balancing the body's flora. The 3.4 billion probiotic bacteria represented by 4 strains of Lactobacillus and 2 of Bifidobacterium, selected for natural resistance to the action of gastric juice, contained in Jarro Dophilus + FOS 30/100 capsules from Secom®, ensure optimum flower repopulation. microbes and action on a wide spectrum of pathogens.

The formula benefits from the protective film made of protein film and polysaccharides, which ensures high resistance to the acidity of the gastric environment and the action of digestive enzymes, for maximum therapeutic efficiency. With the addition of prebiotics (FOS-fructo-oligosaccharides) for potentiating the effects of probiotics and for efficient action up to the colon.
