What the benefits of probiotics?
Posted on Nov 19, 2015
Probiotics is derived from Greek, and means for life. Also known as 'good bacteria', probiotics are live microorganisms that stimulate growth and are said to confer health benefits. Probably the term evolved in direct contrast to antibiotics, which are substances that inhibit growth. Probiotics or beneficial bacteria have been in use for centuries in food and alcoholic fermentation.

There are more than a million microorganisms such as bacteria, virus, and yeast present in our digestive system. Of these, the friendly or good bacteria protect the body from harmful or pathogenic bacteria by reducing their presence and multiplication. The most common probiotic strains are Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, which are used widely to promote good health.

Health benefits of probiotics

Scientists still do not have an exact answer as to how probiotics work. However, while some are of the opinion that good bacteria replaces the bad ones in the intestinal tract, another theory suggests that the friendly bacteria makes the intestinal tract acidic, where bad bacteria can't survive. We have, in our bodies, 400 different types of good microorganisms that fight infection to keep us healthy. Clinical studies have shown that probiotics have several health benefits, such as:

Good sources of probiotics
  • Greens: Spirulina, chlorella, wheatgrass and green leafy vegetables.
  • Polyphenol-containing food: Green tea, garlic and ginseng.
  • Cultured dairy products: Yogurt, buttermilk, powdered milk, cottage cheese, different aged cheese, and frozen desserts.
  • Supplements: Capsules, tablets, and freeze-dried preparations.

Probiotics are living bacteria that benefit our digestive system and overall health. Effects of different strains differ from each other, so it's best to heed your doctor's advice on the amount of probiotic required by your body.
