Probiotics and healthy bacteria

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines probiotics as ‘living micro-organisms which, when administered in adequate quantities, have a beneficial effect on health.’ Most of us know probiotics as lactic acid bacteria or a dietary supplement for the stomach. In this article we explain why probiotics are so important for your gut and how to eat natural probiotics or supplement your food with probiotics.

Probiotics & beneficial bacteria

Healthy bacteria

The gut flora is located in our digestive system, and it consists of a collection of bacteria and other micro-organisms. These have a number of different properties and important functions, like your immune system. For our bodies to feel good and function properly, the majority of these bacteria should be good bacteria. Our gut flora should also be rich with many different species of these good bacteria.

The good gut bacteria do best when they’re fed fibre – a type of carbohydrate found in plant foods. In the same way, an imbalance can be created in the intestinal flora if we eat a low-fibre diet. Other factors that can affect our gut flora are stress, sugar, alcohol, antibiotics, etc.

Probiotics – diet or supplement

To support and strengthen the gut flora, we need to ensure we’re eating natural probiotics which are mostly found in fermented foods such as kimchi and sauerkraut. You can also supplement your food with probiotics, or synbiotics which consist of good bacteria and fibre.

Probiotic powder

Probiotic supplements are available in various forms – in capsules, as drinks, and as powders. Powdered probiotics are usually mixed with water or some other cold or lukewarm liquid. Probiotics should not be heated as this will kill the living lactic bacteria. 

The best probiotic

When choosing a probiotic or synbiotic, the most important thing to consider is to choose a supplement that is backed up by research and clinical studies. Probiotics come in different varieties – for example, the amount of bacteria may vary from a few million to several billion. In addition, different supplements often use different bacterial strains, and there are also supplements that contain 1 strain while others contain 15 strains.

Nowadays, a lot of people choose to take a so-called synbiotic which is a mixture of good bacteria (probiotics) and fibre (prebiotics). Fibre functions as food for the bacteria on their way down to the intestine and make sure that they feel comfortable once they’re there.

Probiotic research

Gut flora and probiotics have become an area of research that’s been given a lot of attention in recent years. The bacteria in our stomachs are linked to different digestive problems, such as IBS and other lifestyle diseases. Something that’s awakened a lot of interest among both researchers and the general public lately is the connection between the gut and the brain – the gut-brain connection or gut-brain axis.

A supplement for your gut health

To strengthen or restore the balance in your gut flora, it's important you feed your gut with a daily dose of pre- and probiotics.
