Probiotics

This is a word that is used so very often by so many people and companies. So much so that it feels like we hear it once every hour - right? But what exactly are probiotics and WHY is it causing this much of a hullabaloo? Don’t you also wonder about the same? So here is an in-depth look at everything about Probiotics!

What are they?

They are live microorganisms that have innumerable health benefits when you consume them. You can find them naturally in fermented foods like yoghurt or kombucha, or in dietary supplements and beauty products.

We often worry when we think of introducing bacteria and other microorganisms into our body. But keep your worries aside, as there are many bacterias that are helpful to the body. They help digest your food, destroy disease-causing cells and even product vitamins. Moreover, in your probiotics, the bacteria are same or similar to the microorganisms that naturally occur inside our bodies!

They are a part of a bigger picture that concerns your body and microorganisms - your microbiome. A biome is a diverse community of organisms that work together to keep the ecosystem functioning well - imagine a forest where the trees feed the animals, and the animals help with pollination and fertilization! A microbiome is the same but in a smaller scale. Your body’s microbiome consists of trillions of microbes. They exist in a combination of

  • Bacteria
  • Virus
  • Protozoa
  • Fungi (including yeasts)

These trillions of microbes can be found in varying combinations - ensuring that all of us have unique microbiomes! (Isnt that fascinating?)

Are all microbes probiotic?

No. While there are millions of bacteria and microorganisms present in the world, for one to be a probiotic, it needs to have the following characteristics

  • It should be able to survive outside a human being
  • It should survive inside the human being after being ingested
  • It should have a proven benefit to the human being
  • It should have the ability to be safely consumed.

Where do they live, once ingested?

The most common place linked as the home of beneficial microbes is your gut - mostly in your large intestines. However, there are several locations in your body that hosts good microbes.

  • Gut
  • Mouth
  • Vagina
  • Urinary Tract
  • Lungs
  • Skin

How do they work?

The main job of probiotics is to help your body maintain a healthy balance between the good and bad bacteria in your body. It basically helps your body stay neutral. When ill, a load of bad bacteria enters your body and knocks it off the neutral position. Sometimes, you take tablets - antibiotics - that rid your gut of all the bacteria - both good and bad! That’s when probiotics help restore balance.

They

  • Help your body digest food
  • Keep the bad bacteria from getting out of control
  • Help your gut remain strong
  • Create vitamins
  • Help support the cells of your gut lining
  • Help break down and absorb medications.
