Friendly Bacteria for Gut Health
The term probiotic means “for life.” The Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO) define probiotics as “live microorganisms administered in adequate amounts which confer a beneficial health effect on the host.” The human body relies on a healthy level of these friendly bacteria for numerous functions, including metabolizing foods, absorbing nutrients and maintaining a proper balance of intestinal flora.
• Aids digestion and intestinal function.
• Strengthens immune response.
How It Works
Probiotic microbes have a symbiotic relationship with their human hosts – both the probiotics and the humans benefit from their relationship. It is estimated that over 400 different types of normal flora inhabit the human gastrointestinal and genitourinary tracts.
Children age 1 to 6 years old who attended day care centers were given milk containing Lactobacillus rhamnosus. The study found that these children missed fewer days of day care than children not receiving the probiotic. Studies have also shown that healthy intestinal bacterial colonization may reduce the risk of food allergies in infants. Researchers have also found that probiotics aid digestion.
