Why Are Probiotics So Important?

We don’t always think about our digestive system and why it is important to our general health. It is important to have a healthy flora for digestion and health.
We have nearly 100 trillion bacteria, fungi, viruses, and other microorganisms which compose your microflora.

 80 percent of them are originated in our gut. These organisms play a major role in our mental and physical health.

Microorganisms living in our body:
• Probiotic
• Pathobiotic
• Eubiotic

 A probiotic is a microorganism in our body contributing positively to our body’s health. These are also called intestinal flora __meaning ” healthful ”

The pathobiotic is a microorganism that can impede and harms our body.

Eubiotics can be either helpful or harmful to your body depending on the location and the size of their colony.

Probiotics were first discovered in the early 1900’s by a scientist named Metchnikoff.  The word means ” for life “.

They can have an influence on our immune system. Also, the right quantity and content of the probiotic populations can make a difference for those who are sickened by viral, bacterial or fungal infections. Probiotics can identify what is harmful or not and work on it.

Also, probiotics can effectively reduce allergies and help for the absorption by assisting the peristalsis motion along the digestive tract, and slow down the cellular degeneration.

Moreover, they can manufacture:

They can manufacture biotin, thiamin (B1),
