The intestinal flora, also known as the gut microbiota, is made up of around 100 trillion micro-organisms, the balance of which has a direct impact on health. When the flora of the digestive system is out of balance, either through antibiotics or harmful viruses and bacteria, abdominal discomfort and diarrhea are likely to occur.
The role of probiotics
Probiotics are defined as living microorganisms (bacteria or yeast) that are naturally present in the intestines. However, when the intestinal microbiota is weakened, probiotic supplements are used to support the digestive system.
Taking probiotics helps maintain good health by, among other things :
- Producing vitamins
- Aiding in digestion
- Stimulating the immune system
- Offering protection against specific intestinal imbalances (diarrhea, bloating, etc.)
