Bacteria – the good, the bad and the ugly!
‘Good’ bacteria or microbiotics are essential for good health and vitality, no matter what your age. Poor diet, stressful situations, low quality food, travel tummy and antibiotics can all affect our levels of ‘good’ bacteria. ‘Bad’ or ‘unfavourable’ bacteria on the other hand, can cause intestinal imbalances that can lead to the risk of infection and illness.
Benefits of Microbiotics
When the ratio of good bacteria to bad is lowered, problems begin to arise such as excessive gas, bloating, intestinal toxicity, constipation and poor absorption of nutrients. Microbiotics play an especially important role in keeping in check the pathogenic bacteria that cause disease. Friendly Bacteria/Microbiotics are absolutely essential for
- proper digestion
- strong immune function and
- overall health.
