In the human body, the digestive tract is a crucial organ for processing nutrients and for the functioning of the immune system. The gut is not sterile; in fact, it is colonized by thousands of billions of bacteria. Most of the over 400 different bacterial speicies found in the gut are considered friendly because they contribute to the overall health of the intestinal tract and the body in general.
The balance between the various bacterial species present in the gut can be upset by lifestyle changes, including the food we eat, use of anti-inflammatories, antibiotic use, chemotherapy agents and other factors like stress and radiation.
The signs associated with gut bacterial imbalace may include:
- bloating and distension,
- bad breath,
- malodorous stools,
- malabsorption associated with lactose intolerance or carbohydrate intolerance,
- inflammation from: antibiotic-associated diarrhea, traveller's diarrhea, digestive conditions relating to the stomach, small intestine, colon and rectum.
Recent research suggests that reestablishing the balance between the number and proportion of different bacterial species present in the gastrointestinal tract can normalize the permeability, motility, metabolism, immune response and other functions of the gut. One natural way to achieve this goal is by ingesting adequate number of selected species of lactic acid bacteria (i.e. Lactobacilli, Streptococcus) and Bifidobacteria.
