They say it's the small things that matter the most. And we agree! Tiny micro-organisms that live in your guts are a great example - so small and yet so mighty.
Also known as gut flora, it is the collection of all the microorganisms that have colonised our gut.
Did you know that we have about 390 trillion microorganisms in our guts? This number is 1.3 times larger than the total number of human cells in the body. They must be mighty important!
Unique to each gut:
The composition of the gut microbiota passes from mother to baby and evolves throughout life.
Environmental factors, lifestyle, diet and medication have more influence than genetic factors.
Gut good bacteria / probiotics:
A large part of the bacteria in our gut are beneficial, living in harmony with our organism. They are very important for maintaining good gut health.
It's all a question of balance:
A healthy gut contains a diverse community of microorganisms that work together to perform various vital functions to our bodies. Functions such as keeping the number of pathogenic micro-organisms in check, breaking down undigested food, synthesising vitamins, producing neurotransmitters and much more.
Probiotics are true allies in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
