Modern medicine has just come to terms with the benefits of probiotics, a slow realization when looking at probiotics discovered by Russian scientist Eli Mechnikov almost 100 years ago. Meaning “for life”, probiotics are the complete opposite of antibiotics. Although antibiotics kill harmful bacteria and beneficial bacteria, probiotics stimulate the growth of healthy bacteria that occur naturally in the body.

It was only after the positive results of a group of researchers responsible for controlling the virus in the hospital that it was noticed by doctors. However, health food retailers and homeopaths were already ahead of the study. As the list of benefits of probiotics grows, modern medicine has begun to incorporate and incorporate them into traditional medicine.

The following is a brief list of the benefits of probiotics:

• Children – With clinical studies showing a possible link between bacterial imbalances and the onset of eczema in childhood in children, probiotics have been used as a treatment that has failed. that it reduces the symptoms of eczema but also, sometimes, eliminates it completely. Infants given a fortified probiotic formula experienced fewer episodes for the same reason. Reducing the symptoms of severe diarrhea and the spread of rotavirus are two other benefits of probiotics for children.

• Adults – Men have experienced lower overall cholesterol levels by using biofit probiotic supplements . In women, probiotics have been shown to alleviate the symptoms of vaginal infections by promoting the growth of flora in the vagina (healthy vaginal bacteria). Because of the well-known ability of probiotics to control the digestive process, older adults have experienced significant improvements indigestion.

• Digestive Disorders-With many factors such as stress, travel, illness, and the use of antibiotics that can upset the balance of bacteria in the digestive tract, symptoms of gastrointestinal disorders may include constipation, gas, diarrhea, and discomfort. If left untreated, such symptoms can lead to other problems such as a breakdown of the immune system. However, the use of probiotic supplements or eating a diet containing probiotics can restore the natural bacterial balance to the line that the body can repair itself and reduce symptoms. By promoting the growth of plants in the intestine, the specific form of acidophilus present in probiotics can inhibit the conversion of bile into carcinogens, thus preventing autoimmune diseases. Similarly, active bacterial cultures of certain types of probiotics can produce lactase enzymes that counteract the effects of lactose in those who are intolerant. Therefore, many people who are lactose intolerant can eat yogurt with an active culture.

• Bioavailability – The body’s ability to absorb nutrients from food is known as bioavailability. Probiotics increase bioavailability by breaking down complex hydrocarbons, which allows them to inhibit their action.

The use of probiotic supplements allows the body to regulate itself in a natural way. This allows a person to increase their quality of life, avoid common complications and lead a healthier lifestyle.
