Essential Formulas tells us that …..
You aren’t just an individual, you’re an environment. Bacterial cells are much smaller than individual human cells. Each human body is home to about 10 times more bacterial cells than human cells. The majority of these bacteria live in the large intestine.
That’s why it’s so important to make sure that your bacterial population is dominated by friendly probiotics!
According to the World Health Organization (WHO):
“live micro-organisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host.”
substances that are not digested, and when they reach the large intestine, they stimulate the growth of beneficial bacteria.
a combination of probiotics and prebiotics.
Did you ALSO know that Probiotics are helpful bacteria, but yes, there are many bacteria strains that are NOT beneficial. Some bad bacteria overgrow in the small intestine, some cause havoc in the large intestine. These bad bacteria may cause a wide variety of digestive symptoms that include gas, bloating, pain, nausea, diarrhea, cramping, constipation and anxiety.
