How do Probiotic and Prebiotic Food Give You Good Health?

When you hear the word bacteria the last thing you would relate it to is good health. But bacteria can be both good and bad. Here we will understand what ‘good’ bacteria are and how we can preserve them for our optimum health.

There are about three pounds of bacteria in normal, hale and hearty digestive tract. Under optimum conditions about one third of this bacteria populace comprise of the ‘good’ ones. At worst, and mainly due to extended use of antibiotics over the years, the population of the good bacteria gets reduced to a number which is practically untraceable. This condition is known as dysbiosis. As argued by many health specialists, dysbiosis lies at the root of over seventy percent of all diseases, which includes unceasing and regular problems like depression, acne, allergies caused by certain food products, digestive problems and weakness.

The alimentary canal is the home of more than 400 types of bacteria, good as well as bad. Probiotics are the good ones. Two common types are lactobacilli and bifidobacteria. If a good balance of probiotic bacteria is maintained, the bad bacteria are incompetent to cause significant diseases or irritable health conditions.

Foods that contain alive and advantageous bacteria are also known as probiotics. Milk products such as yogurt and buttermilk are the most acknowledged foods that provide the beneficial bacteria for the bowel.

How Probiotics Benefit Your Health

  • It helps in synthesis of essential vitamins, mainly vitamin B.
  • The nutrients are more readily available.
  • Reduces lactose intolerance.
  • Increases immunity.
  • Destroy illness creating microorganisms by producing antibacterial and antimicrobial substance like cytokines, butyric acid.
  • Helps in easy digestion, chiefly of milk products, by fueling the development of bacteria producing lactic acid.
  • It increases the production of cells that boosts immunity.
  • It makes the gastrointestinal tissue layer strong which helps protect against infections.
  • It prevents and restricts the activity and development of helicobacter pylori, a bad bacterium, which causes peptic ulcers.
  • Lot of studies and researches has indicated that probiotcs may help fight cancer risks, reduce the chances of urogenital infections in females, may also reduce cholesterol level and decrease blood pressure.

Foods that contain significant volume of probiotics are mainly milk products like yoghurts, buttermilk, fermented milk and ice creams. Two most commonly found good bacteria in these products are lactobacilli and bifidobacteria. It is always best to meet the probiotics requirement through food products, however, in some cases herbal supplements or nutritional supplements can also be taken.

What Are Prebiotics?

Then again, there are food products known as prebiotics that aid in the growth and multiplication of good bacteria. To understand better you can say that prebiotics are energy providing food for probiotic bacteria. Prebiotics are those food components that are indigestible in nature. Prebiotic foods include wheat, soybeans, onions, lentils, garlic, peas, banana, chicory, tomatoes and beans. These foods affect the probiotic bacteria in the stomach positively.

How Prebiotics Benefit Your Health

  • Prebiotic foods aid in reducing the bad cholesterol levels.
  • Greatly reduces the risk of having heart problems.
  • It helps the body in absorbing most of the important minerals particularly calcium.
  • It strengthens the bones.
  • It improves the bowel health and helps in providing relief during stomach problems such as acidity and constipation.
  • Studies have also indicated that prebiotics helps in detoxification of carcinogens produced in the abdomen.

Now that you know the benefits of having more good bacteria in your stomach don’t forget to add probiotic and prebiotic foods in your diet.

    I believe that a foreclosed can have a major effect on the client’s life. Home foreclosures can have a 6 to several years negative effect on a borrower’s credit report. A borrower who has applied for home financing or virtually any loans for that matter, knows that your worse credit rating is usually, the more difficult it is to obtain a decent mortgage. In addition, it may affect a borrower’s capability to find a decent place to let or rent, if that results in being the alternative property solution. Thanks for your blog post.

    I meant to say, I think it takes far more faith to believe in evolution than it does in creation. I absolutely respect other peoples beliefs, I am only sharing mine. More importantly, I believe God honors the choices we make in our beliefs. I do not see anywhere in the Bible where God is shoving a belief system done anybody’s throat. So us Christians should NOT try to shove our beliefs on to anybody else. I wish everyone who reads this the very best and happiness in? this world.

    I’ve always found those sorts of deals really skeptical. Unless you’re willing to do any job and go anywhere, I’d guess you’d get scammers, temp jobs or other things that aren’t helpful. You might get some good leads, but you’ll probably have to do a LOT of wading to get through the junk.. . I’d advise you do things like use LinkedIn or Facebook (although I have concerns about the latter) to make connections with people you know and let them know you’re looking for a job. Usually going through your networks are more helpful and effective than shooting your resume out there into the black hole.. . Good luck!
