Probiotics are beneficial microorganisms that colonize the intestines. Also known as beneficial bacteria or friendly flora, various strains of probiotics play a critical role in our well-being, promoting a range of important health benefits. There are 400 different probiotic strains that inhabit the digestive tract. Lactobacillus acidophilus is the most prominent strain that’s taken in probiotic supplements form. Bifidobacterium is popular as well, though not as widely consumed as lactobacillus acidophilus.
Probiotics (which means "for life") neutralize harmful bacteria and microbes throughout the digestive tract. Without probiotics like lactobacillus acidophilus, harmful bacteria would reproduce unchecked, leading to an unbalanced internal environment that may be more vulnerable. By neutralizing harmful bacteria and catabolic enzymes, lactobacillus acidophilus promotes digestive comfort. It also supports robust immune system performance.
Acidophilus probiotic plays a role in the gastrointestinal tract's motor function as well, helping the intestines to move food along while supporting a healthy mucosal lining. Lactobacillus acidophilus probiotics help catalyze the digestion of fats, proteins and carbohydrates, too, enabling probiotic supplements to help enhance digestion and synthesis of other nutrients, ultimately supporting overall nutritional status.
These good bacteria help to promote regularity, digestive wellness and comfort, optimize nutrient absorption throughout your gastrointestinal tract and support the overall function and health of your intestines. They help to move food along through the intestines by supporting a healthy mucosal lining all while kicking the digestion of fats, proteins and carbohydrates into high gear.
And that’s not all!
In addition to supporting overall digestive health, comfort and efficiency, which helps to promote peak nutritional status, probiotics are also powerful supporters of the immune system.
It is important to note that certain medications, including antibiotics, can decrease the levels of these friendly flora, so probiotic supplementation is especially important during this time. In addition to supplements, you can also find probiotics naturally in yogurt, cheese, and fermented foods.
