Probiotics are a type of beneficial bacteria that exist in the human gut itself. There are more than 100 trillion bacteria in the human gut, which are roughly divided into beneficial bacteria, intermediate bacteria and harmful bacteria. When the human body is healthy, the intestinal flora is in a balanced state, but when you have symptoms of constipation and diarrhea, it means that the number of harmful bacteria in the intestinal tract is far greater than that of beneficial bacteria and neutral bacteria. When harmful bacteria occupy the majority of the intestinal tract, they will cause different diseases. At this time, it is necessary to restore the balance of intestinal flora by supplementing probiotics.

What are the functions of probiotics?
1. Supplementary nutrition
After entering the human body, probiotics can also produce many nutrients that are beneficial to the human body, such as vitamins, including pantothenic acid, niacin, b1, b2, b6 and vitamin k. In addition, a large amount of short-chain fatty acids, antioxidants, amino acids, etc. can be produced in a short period of time. These nutrients are of extraordinary significance for bone growth and heart health. That is to say, probiotics can help us effectively prevent heart disease and various common bone problems.

2. Promote digestion
Only when there are enough probiotics in the gut can we quickly decompose and absorb the various foods we ingest. A lack of probiotics in the gut is likely to cause us to suffer from indigestion. Therefore, you should eat more foods rich in probiotics in your daily life to help the digestion and absorption of nutrients. And probiotic strains can produce digestive enzymes in the gastrointestinal tract, which help the body better digest the food ingested and absorb the nutrients in the food.

In addition, this bacterium can inhibit harmful microorganisms from absorbing nutrients and entering the blood circulation system, and it can also secrete lactase, which digests lactose, thereby relieving lactose intolerance.

3. Prevent and treat certain diseases
The effects of probiotics are very broad. The researchers pointed out that probiotics also have the effect of preventing and treating certain diseases, such as intestinal syndrome, respiratory infections, reproductive system infections, allergies, bad breath, stomach ulcers and so on. Many times the human body suffers from these diseases, mostly because of the imbalance of the flora in the body, such as diarrhea, constipation, etc. At this time, it is only necessary to supplement with probiotics to effectively treat it.

4. Prevent infection
Only a large amount of probiotics in the human body can effectively avoid the infection of various bacteria and germs. At the same time, a large number of studies have found that probiotics can improve human immunity. Moreover, probiotics can remove the damage of harmful bacteria to the body, and sufficient probiotics can also inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria. In addition, probiotics can inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria by producing chemicals that kill harmful bacteria and compete with harmful bacteria for space and resources.

At the same time, probiotics can also effectively inhibit the production of toxins by harmful bacteria, which means that supplementing more probiotics in our daily life can also help us effectively prevent various infectious diseases.

How to choose probiotics?
The selection of probiotics should be considered from three aspects: one is activity. The second is bacterial species. Different species of the same probiotic will have completely different effects. The third is quantity, only a sufficient amount of probiotics can work. Bifidobacterium adolescentis can inhibit the growth of bad bacteria in the intestine, prevent diarrhea, improve bowel movements, regulate diarrhea and constipation in both directions, help synthesize vitamins, promote mineral absorption, and improve digestion and absorption.
