How can probiotics benefit the body?

The human Microbiome keeps your immune system strong, aids in digestion, and promotes cognitive functions. Bacteria in our gut break down potentially toxic food compounds and synthesize a few vitamins and amino acids such as B vitamins and vitamin K. The Microbiome of a healthy person will also protect from pathogenic organisms that enter the body by drinking or eating contaminated water or food.

Sugars and easily-digestible nutrients are quickly absorbed in the upper part of the small intestine. Instead, more complex carbohydrates like starches and fibers move lower to the large intestine. Once they reach the large intestine, Probiotics will help break down these compounds with digestive enzymes. The fermentation of indigestible fibers will produce short-chain fatty acids (SCFA). Our body will absorb those as a nutrient source. Their absorption will benefit our muscle function, and brain health, and prevent the formation of chronic diseases, including certain cancers and bowel disorders. Recent studies have confirmed that SCFA may help treat ulcerative colitis, Chron’s disease, and antibiotic-associated diarrhea.
