Female Speaker : Worldwide, probiotics for diarrhoea have been used for millennia, thanks to their wide-ranging health benefits. What are probiotics? Probiotics are living microorganisms—bacteria and yeast—that confirm their beneficial effects once they reach the gastrointestinal tract. [00.20]
In order to reach the gut, however, they first have to survive the harsh, acidic conditions of the stomach. Once in the gut, they need to adhere to the intestinal mucosa where they can then multiply and start colonizing.
It is at this stage that [00.40] probiotics increase immunity and start delivering their health probiotic benefits to the host, including maintaining a healthy gut, helping restore gut flora, strengthening the immune system, reducing symptoms of gut imbalance such as diarrhea, bloating, constipation as well as reducing inflammatory processes [01.00] and helping vitamin biosynthesis. Strains from the lactobacillus, bifidobacterium, saccharomyces and the bacillus genus make up the most common probiotics. [01.20]
