Probiotics are live microorganisms that are intended to have health benefits when consumed or applied to the body. They can be found in yogurt and other fermented foods, dietary supplements, and beauty products. Although people often think of bacteria and other microorganisms as harmful “germs,” many are actually helpful. Some bacteria help digest food, destroy disease-causing cells, or produce vitamins. Many of the microorganisms in probiotic products are the same as or similar to microorganisms that naturally live in our bodies.
What types of bacteria are in probiotics?
Probiotics may contain a variety of microorganisms. The most common are bacteria that belong to groups called Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. Other bacteria may also be used as probiotics, and so may yeasts such as Saccharomyces boulardii.
Different types of probiotics may have different effects. For example, if a specific kind of Lactobacillus helps prevent an illness, that doesn’t necessarily mean that another kind of Lactobacillus or any of the Bifidobacterium probiotics would do the same thing.
Are prebiotics the same as probiotics?
No, prebiotics aren’t the same as probiotics. Prebiotics are nondigestible food components that selectively stimulate the growth or activity of desirable microorganisms.
What are synbiotics?
Synbiotics are products that combine probiotics and prebiotics ensuring synergy in this multi-faceted probiotic as is the case with the Imsyser 12 strain Fermented Liquid product. In fact, Imsyser is known for its postbiotics a relatively new term since the breakdown process is as important as the build up to of a really good probiotic.
How popular are probiotics?
Among adults, probiotics or prebiotics were the third most commonly used dietary supplement other than vitamins and minerals. The use of probiotics by adults quadrupled between 2007 and 2012. The newer introduction of probiotics for babies and children is an even greater growing industry as they too are battling with the modern day discrepancies and feel the difference in foods void of effective nutrition and missing the essential good micro-organism from the soil and foods. Also, if mommy is compromised what is passed on is a compromised baby and so the level of depletion remains and or increases.
How might probiotics work?
Probiotics may have a variety of effects in the body, and different probiotics may act in different ways. They help your body maintain a healthy community of microorganisms or help your body’s community of microorganisms return to a healthy condition after being disturbed. Probiotics produce substances that have desirable effects on and influence your body’s Immune response and every other secondary response thereafter even including brain health and responses onto and in old age. New therapeutic approaches designed to modify the microbiome to treat disease and support health is the subject of the moment. Probiotics have shown promise for a variety of health purposes, including prevention of antibiotic-associated diarrhea (including diarrhea caused by Clostridium difficile), prevention of necrotizing enterocolitis and sepsis in premature infants, treatment of infant colic, treatment of periodontal disease, and induction or maintenance of remission in ulcerative colitis….and so the list continues:
