The expression ‘health begins in the gut’ is very true. The gut, also known as the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, is responsible for transforming food into energy and nutrients necessary for every system in the body to function properly. An unhealthy gut can lead to more than just digestive issues, it can also contribute to compromised immune response, neurological disorders, psychiatric disorders, malnutrition, weight gain, and cardiovascular disease to name a few [1,9,10,11,12].
How does probiotics help maintain a healthy gut?
One of the most important components of the human GI tract is its microbiome which consists of thousands of bacterial strains and numbering in the trillions. This community of microorganisms is necessary for healthy digestion because it facilitates the conversion and absorption of vital nutrients. Gut microbiome also acts as a protective layer against corrosive acids, pathogens, and toxins [2, 5,16].
Unfortunately, stressors such as aging, environmental contaminants, diet, stress, and medication can destabilized a gut microbiome . For example, the frequent use of antibiotics against harmful bacteria also decrease the number of good bacteria in the GI tract . Even more, particular diets can also impact gut microbiome in a negative way. For instance, the frequent consumption of high saturated fat adversely affects gut microbiome by promoting the growth of harmful bacteria .
Fortunately, probiotics or beneficial live bacteria from food and supplements can help reestablish a healthy gut microbiome. Fermented food such as yogurt and kefir are a good source of beneficial bacteria . For a standardized quantity and specific strains of probiotics, dietary supplements are a good option. Gut bacteria also thrives on prebiotics such as fiber, so regularly consuming probiotics with prebiotics can support a healthy gut .
What Are Prebiotics?
Prebiotics are non-digestible compounds that when metabolised by microorganism in the gut, presents beneficial effects to the host . There are various types of prebiotics and they are commonly obtained from complex carbohydrates (eg. fiber) or enzymatically produced from disaccharides .
While humans cannot digest complex carbohydrates, bacteria in the gut rely on them for food .Probiotic food and supplements are often formulated with prebiotics to support the growth and survival of beneficial bacteria in the gut.
The metabolism of prebiotics by gut bacteria also results in the production of short-chain fatty acids. This process has been shown to lower pH, improve the bioavailability of calcium and magnesium, and protect the gut from potentially harmful bacteria .
Biome 100® is optimized with a prebiotic fiber known as NutraFlora® FOS (fructo-oligosaccharides). It has shown to favor the growth of good gut bacteria such as bifidobacterium [7,8]. Additionally, it can also decrease the production of harmful intestinal putrefactive substances and alleviate constipation .
