Bacteria have always received a bad press. Some bacteria are ‘Friendly' and we need them to help many parts of our bodies. They are present in our mouths and run right the way through our digestive tract. Without their support, particularly in the lower intestine, many functions throughout the body would be compromised.
The use of probiotics is encouraged, for the benefits that it has to our general health and in particular our digestive tract. People generally think of bacteria as the cause of infection or disease. They do not think about the good some of them do to lessen a number of problems.
As with many substances included as an ingredient in supplements, probiotics occur naturally in the body, and is present in the intestine along with yeast. If the probiotics inside uses are depleted then the yeast begins to grow, and that is when stomach and intestinal problems emerge.
The most common food that contains probiotics is yoghurts. Probiotics can also be found in chocolate. The body contains many bad bacteria but the presence of probiotics creates a balance.
Probiotics aid digestion by making it easy for food to move through the gut. Some common probiotics are Lactobacillus found in yoghurts and Bifidobacterium, which can be found in some dairy products.
