Our Digestive System is a home to trillions of bacteria also called the “Gut Flora” which works day and night all seasons a year for a happy and healthy immune system. The Gut Flora helps in digestion, converts food we eat into nutritions and stimulate immune cells.
Though we need only beneficial bacterias in our gut but due to lifestyle habits and environmental infections we get harmful bacteria also. Hence it is very important to keep a balance of Gut Flora improving lifestyle habits and eating beneficial bacteria’s. The Digestive System aka Gut Flora contains more than 70% of overall immune cells of a human body which plays an important role in protecting from infections fighting harmful bacteria, viruses and cancer cells.
It is an undebatable fact that Gut Flora’s are one of the key virtual organ of human body. Hence it is very important to protect the immune cells providing a healthy colony of bacterias. This is the same Gut Flora which helps to get rid of the waste materials from body forming stools.
Among other things, probiotics help send food through your gut affecting nerves that control gut movement. Researchers are still trying to figure out which are best for certain health problems. Some common conditions they treat are:
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
- Infectious diarrhea (caused viruses, bacteria, or parasites)
- Diarrhea caused antibiotics
There is also some research that shows they’re useful for problems in other parts of your body. For example, some people say they have helped with:
- Skin conditions, like eczema
- Urinary and vaginal health
- Preventing allergies and colds
- Oral health

PREBIOTICS are a type of fiber that the human body cannot digest but act as food for the gut flora or the tiny living microorganisms, including bacteria and yeast. Hence it is important to serve the gut flora with adequate prebiotics along with probiotics. Prebiotics occur naturally in many foods. There is no need for people to take prebiotic supplements but need to understand which food contains prebiotics.
PROBIOTICS are live beneficial bacteria and can be created naturally fermentation process. Few examples of probiotic foods are yogurt, sauerkraut, miso soup, kimchi etc. Consumption of probiotic food helps gut to dominate bad bacterias in the gut.
