What are probiotics?
In the normal human gut there are over 100 trillion bacteria. As you get older, get stressed, or take antibiotics those normal good-guy bacteria die off. These probiotics do everything from helping to break down food, providing essential nutrients like vitamin K, and keeping the competing bad bacteria at bay. Probiotics supplement the gastrointestinal tract with those known, good, beneficial organisms. Probiotic supplements are one of the most popular health supplements because they actually work to help maintain digestive health.
Nexabiotic® has been formulated to cover all bases in terms of probiotics. Nexabiotic® provides your digestive tract 23 different kinds of probiotics at a substantial dose (34.5 billion CFUs) which helps restore digestive balance. Not only that but Nexabiotic® capsules are also specially engineered so that its high-quality probiotics survive the harsh stomach acid and make it into the gut where they need to be.
The gastrointestinal system
The GI system is where the food you eat gets broken down and absorbed into the body. For most of us it functions without a hitch. For others however, each meal is a nerve-wracking experience. Foods that don’t agree cause great discomfort and unpredictable bowel movements. For those, meals need to be planned and the location of bathrooms known beforehand.
The role of microorganisms
How well your digestive system functions is indicative of its health. However it is not only your digestive system that does that digesting of food, there are microorganisms that help as well.
In fact, there are more organisms living in your colon than there are people living on the Earth. Not much has been known about the role these organisms play until the recent explosion in use of antibiotics. The problem with antibiotics is that they are not discerning. They kill all bacteria that aren’t resistant to that particular antibiotic. As we now know, not all organisms in our colons are bad.
Depending on the relationship of the organism with our body, they can be either categorized as mutualistic, parasitic, or commensal. A relationship is mutualistic when both we and the organism benefit. It is commensal when one benefits and the other isn’t impacted. A relationship is parasitic when one organism benefits and the other is negatively harmed.
What’s a probiotic?
The goal of a probiotic supplement is to maximize the number of mutualistic or commensal organisms within your colon. In doing so, parasitic and harmful organisms cannot establish themselves and cause harm. The mere presence of other organisms in your gastrointestinal tract keeps your immune system running at optimal levels. Often times people who travel abroad will develop diarrhea because their immune systems are not accustomed to the different types of microflora in other countries.
