Probiotics - support for healthy intestinal flora
Our intestines are not "just" a digestive organ. Rather, it is the largest immune organ within our body. About 100 trillion bacteria from about 1,000 different species nest on the inner mucous membranes of the intestine, forming a complex ecosystem known as "microbial flora". This intestinal flora has an enormously important role in the health of our body, as well as our psyche.
Without the small bacteria in our intestines, normal digestion would be impossible, for example. Other tasks of the intestinal flora include the stimulation of intestinal movement, which is responsible for the transport of the food pulp, and the production of vitamin K, which is important for blood clotting.
The small bacteria react sensitively when we are exposed to too much stress or eat an unhealthy diet. In both cases, the balance between the different types of bacteria shifts, which can often manifest itself in flatulence, constipation or even diarrhoea.
Probiotics - support for the intestinal flora
In addition to healthy eating and avoiding stress, taking probiotics can also ensure a healthy and strong intestinal flora. However, a prerequisite for a positive effect is that the probiotics reach the large intestine in sufficiently large quantities after ingestion. In addition, probiotics must have the ability to adhere to the intestinal wall. Only in this way can they settle locally and support the local intestinal flora. For this reason, various lactobacilli and bifidobacteria are often used as probiotics.
How do probiotics work?
Various studies have shown: probiotics have a positive influence on the balance of the intestinal flora. The reason is that probiotics increase the number of "good" germs and bacteria in the intestine, so that pathogens have less chance of settling in the intestinal flora. By the way: every fourth person has about 40 % too few healthy germs in their intestines.
If you want to use probiotics not only to support your well-being and health, but also to alleviate or prevent certain diseases, you should look for suitable products with the right composition. An example of this are the products from the "OMNI-BIOTIC" series, which offer the right product for many different areas. For example, there are certain compositions for the prevention of diarrhoea when travelling, for the treatment of migraine and severe headaches and much more.
