Probiotics are "beneficial" bacteria that, when ingested, help support healthy microbial balance in the gut. Healthy human intestines contain billions of microorganisms both "good" and potentially harmful. The "good" bacteria in the intestines are considered an integral part of normal immune system support.
Probiotics are important because they can synthesize certain vitamins and short-chain fatty acids to support a healthy intestinal lining and bolster immunity. When your intestinal lining is occupied by healthy beneficial flora, it leaves unwelcome microorganisms deprived of both space and nutrients.
Healthy people usually have a ratio of approximately 85% "good" and 15% potentially harmful organisms in the intestinal tract. In some cases, even those who appear to be well might have an unfavorable ratio as a result of daily exposure to environmental toxins and a modern lifestyle. For example, taking antibiotics and drinking chlorinated water, may often change the optimal microbial balance essential for good health.
Large scale use of pesticides, herbicides and other chemicals has changed the bacterial balance in the soil. Historically, we obtained the benefits of needed microorganisms from consuming foods cultivated in healthy soil. But today, A lack of "beneficial" bacteria in your diet can result in an unbalanced internal environment and a lack of support for your normal immune system function.
