Picture this: a microscopic party happening inside you with tiny living beings called microorganisms! Some are unicellular, some are multicellular, and some form their little clusters. Among these cool party crashers, is none other than bacteria – they're everywhere, on us, in us, you name it!
And get this, you're hosting more bacteria in your body than human cells! It's like a full-blown bacterial fiesta going on! But hold on, we're not done yet. Let's break it down: Genus, Species & Strains – sounds like the VIP guest list, right?
Genus and Species are your regular partygoers, but the real fun starts with the bacterial strains. They're like the unique and quirky party animals, each bringing its distinct vibe. Among the countless bacteria, the coolest ones rock the Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium family!
So, next time you feel a rumble in your belly or a dance-off in your gut, just remember it's the microorganism bash, and bacteria are here to party like it's their last night out!
Let's Decode Probiotics. Did You Know?
Probiotics are being recommended by health care practitioners for a host of benefits – immune enhancement, gut health, allergy, urogential health, skin care or oral health.
There is ongoing research in the areas of weight loss, diabetes, autism and as an adjuvants in chemotherapy. It has been established that probiotics do not enter the blood stream, and generally found to be safe for people of all ages including infants, pregnant women and the elderly.
The Role of Probiotics
Prebiotics are soluble, non digestible fibre which serves as the food for gut microbes and in turn ensures good colon health. Prebiotics and probiotics work together to ensure there is a healthy colony of bacteria in the body. Recent research has also shown that prebiotics can kick start the growth of the native gut bacteria and restore intestinal health.
