According to the World Health Organization, probiotics are “live micro-organisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host1. Probiotics help intestinal bacteria perform their tasks more efficiently. They take over when your intestinal bacteria have too much work, or are weakened, or even destroyed by antibiotics, stress, poor nutrition or any other factor.
The intestinal flora represents a first line of defence against microbes and other infectious germs. The bacteria of the flora temporarily adhere to the intestinal wall and reinforce this physical barrier to pathogens and blocking them from adhering while also competing directly with them for the nutrients found there. Lactic acid bacteria produce organic acids that contribute to a low intestinal pH level, bacteriocins, and hydrogen peroxide, all of which actively discourage the propagation, growth, and survival of pathogens5.
