We all love to eat. We need food for growth and maintenance for a healthy body to perform any physical and mental tasks required in our daily life. Healthy living to most men and women means both physical and mental health is in balance or functioning well together. It’s a fact that physical and mental healths are tightly linked, so that any little or major change in one (good or bad) naturally affects the other. If the body is sick, the mind gets impacted and vice versa.
Health experts believe that whatever food we put in our gut does matter and is critical to our overall health. About eighty percent of the immune system is located in the digestive tract. The digestive system is the second largest part of our neurological system and is called the enteric nervous system. It is located in our gut. A Healthy gut contributes to a healthy mind and body and probiotics plays a vital role in achieving this.
What are Probiotics?
The root of the word probiotic comes from the Greek word pro, meaning "promoting," and biotic, meaning "life." Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts living in our digestive tract that helps to break down our food and gain nutrition from them.
Our body is full of both good and bad bacteria. Digestive experts agree that the balance of gut flora should be approximately 85 percent good bacteria and 15 percent bad bacteria. Some people usually think of bacteria as harmful germs or illness and something that is bad for our health. Probiotics are known as the friendly, good, or healthy bacteria because they help keep our gut healthy. Probiotics are naturally found in our body and we can also find them in some foods and supplements.
Types of Probiotics
Probiotics have many types of bacteria that have different benefits. Most of them come from two groups. Before consuming any, it is necessary to ask your physician which one is appropriate for what you need.
Lactobacillus - is the most common probiotics and found in yogurt and other fermented foods. Different strains can help with diarrhea and may help with people who can’t digest lactose, the sugar in milk.
Bifidobacterium - may help ease the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and some other conditions. This is found in some dairy products.
