It's probably not a type of subject that particularly caught your attention, but have you ever wondered how much help certain bacteria can give you? I bet not!
Most of us know that these are things we must absolutely avoid. Still reminiscent of childhood, we all heard the voice of mother and teacher who always told us to wash our hands to keep us from bacteria.
However, they populate almost the entire surface of our intestinal tract. Whether we like the idea or not, inside the digestive system there is a continuous battle between two types of bacteria.
Let's see who these are and which bacteria we should avoid and which ones we shouldn't. They are of two types: beneficial bacteria, that is, probiotics or "friendly bacteria"; they help us to keep healthy, populate the digestive tract forming a group of about 400 types, and others that we have called "harmful" that means pathogens, because their multiplication favors the appearance of different diseases.
Probiotics are living non-pathogenic microorganisms, with extremely beneficial effects on health, their effects manifesting in the buccal cavity, digestive tract, respiratory tract and in the uro-genital system.
The role of "friendly bacteria", that is, probiotics, is an extremely important one, promotes easy digestion, aids in the complete absorption of nutrients, protects the intestinal mucosa, reduces the manifestations of the irritable colon and stimulates the body from an immune point of view. In addition, they all have the role of providing the enzymes and nutrients necessary for the body, eliminating cholesterol, synthesizing vitamins, cleaning the intestinal deposits and preventing the development of pathogenic bacteria, all contributing to maintaining a healthy digestive system.
The colon can be kept healthy with 85% probiotics and 15% pathogens. Our health depends on the balance between these two types of bacteria. Probiotics predominate because they colonize a larger portion of the intestine - that is, the entire small intestine and part of the colon, while pathogens are found only in the descending colon. Any modification or imbalance of this report means an increased sensitivity to infections, because the intestinal flora does not play its protective role correctly.
However, intestinal balance can be disturbed by many factors: infections, stress, drugs (antibiotics). After prolonged antibiotic treatments, the intestinal flora is affected and digestive and immune disorders appear. In these conditions the intake of probiotics helps to restore the intestinal balance.
Antibiotics destroy 99% of the probiotic flora and thus dysbiosis occurs (abdominal pain, flatulence, constipation or diarrhea).
But do not think that you only need probiotics, but also children or even newborns. There are clinical studies that have confirmed a close link between the gut microbial balance and the onset of asthma and allergies in children.
The probiotic balancing of the child begins during the birth, when the newborn, who has a perfectly sterile intestine, is exposed to the probiotic bacteria present in the mucous (vaginal) membranes and thus begins the colonization of the gastrointestinal tract of the child with probiotics helping to develop it. and protecting the intestinal flora, by decomposing ingested foods making them assimilable, they prevent and treat diarrhea and constipation, flatulence and colic.
The most important probiotics of the intestinal flora are: Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Bifidobacterium longum, Bifidobacterium breva and Pediococcus acidilactici. These probiotic bacteria are naturally produced by the body and are supported by a healthy diet, stress control, exercise and of course the administration of probiotic supplements.
Unfortunately, as we get older, the level of probiotics in the body drops dramatically, causes of this can be chlorine from drinking water, radiation, meat and dairy products, antibiotics, diets, increased fat intake, constipation, cigarettes, alcohol and stress.
When probiotics gain dominance in the body, you will gain strong immunity, protection against digestive disorders, less chance of disease occurrence. You will no longer suffer from constipation, diarrhea or irritable bowel syndrome, and the nutrients you ingest will reach where it is needed.
All these things make you think and cause you to start using natural probiotic supplements starting today.
SECOM helps you earn as many "friendly bacteria" as possible, giving you the most effective natural probiotic supplements for you and your little ones.
What should you be careful about when choosing a probiotic product?
As with any other natural health product, pay attention to the concentration of ingredients and the number of "friendly bacteria" types. The more types present, the more the number of friendly bacteria will increase and the more pathogens will be attacked. For optimal results, it is recommended to combine probiotics with prebiotics in the same product, which potentiate and support the action of probiotics.
The mixture of prebiotics and probiotics creates the symbiotic group, substances beneficial for health, which in particular stimulates the growth and activity of lactobacteria and bifidobacteria.
Jarro-Dophilus EPS reactivates over 90% of probiotic bacteria between 20 and 90 minutes after administration, it is found in the form of entero-soluble capsules that ensures increased resistance to the destructive action of lysozyme in saliva, to the action of acidic stomach PH, bile salts and of pancreatic enzymes.
Jarro-Dophilus EPS contains 5 billion probiotic bacteria of 8 different types with the role of restoring and maintaining the integrity of the intestinal mucosa and the healthy balance of the intestinal flora, especially in the case of antibiotics, to reduce the manifestations and recurrence of digestive, vaginal, genital infections. - urination and to improve the manifestations in digestive disorders.
Recommended price: 118 Ron / 60 capsules.
Baby's Jarro-Dophilus + FOS contains 3 billion probiotic bacteria of 6 different types, develops and protects the beneficial intestinal flora of newborns and young children by colonizing the entire digestive tract, facilitates digestion and reduces colic in the newborn, prevents and treats diarrhea, malabsorption and intestinal syndrome permeable, it protects the immune function, accelerates the breakdown of food making them assimilable.
