Culture of microbes.Do we need probiotics?

Postby IvanOst1990 on Wed Nov 21, 2018 9:13 am

Probiotics are microbial cultures that help the intestines work properly. Mostly lactobacilli and bifidobacteria. With a sufficient amount of these beneficial bacteria in the intestine, all digestion processes proceed correctly: the breakdown of foods, the absorption of nutrients, etc. These bacteria are also responsible for the production of certain nutrients and vitamins, in particular folic acid, vitamin K.
Sources of probiotics are all dairy products. Again, on average, it is recommended to consume about 600 grams of dairy and dairy products. At the same time fermented milk should prevail. It is important to pay attention to the shelf life of such products.

 Dairy products: how they are useful and how to choose natural
Should I be guided by the inscription “contains live bacteria” on the packaging of kefir or yogurt? It does not matter, since most bacteria die under the influence of gastric hydrochloric acid. To the intestine, where they are called to work, it is unlikely that they will reach alive in the right quantity. That is why there are drugs containing lacto-and bifidobacteria. They are usually made in capsules that protect them from destruction in the acidic environment of the stomach. So for a healthy diet, ordinary kefir and yogurt are fine.
Only live
Today, the use of dairy products is no one in doubt. “They can be attributed to the so-called functional nutrition *,” explains Andrei Prodeus, “which, in addition to its nutritional benefits, also has the ability to benefit our health.” However, in order for this benefit to manifest itself, it is necessary to fulfill several important conditions. “Probiotic strains contained in fermented milk products must pass through the upper sections of the gastrointestinal tract, where they are found, for example, with gastric acid,” explains Natalia Bredikhina. “Therefore, they must have qualities that will allow them to overcome similar barriers and settle in the colon.” One of these qualities is, paradoxically, the sheer number of bacteria. “In order for a fermented milk product to work effectively for the prevention of dysbacteriosis, the total content of microorganisms in it must be not less than one million to one milliliter,” explains Natalya Yefimochkina. “In drug products with probiotics, the dose is increased many times.” But for microorganisms to "work", they must remain alive. And for this they need special conditions, first of all temperature conditions - then they will be able to remain active for six weeks. The recommended storage temperature of fermented milk products is from 4 to 8 ° C. But in the warmth of the activity of bacteria increases, and their life cycle may end before we have time to benefit from yogurt or kefir.
Why did I write all this? Everything is just really necessary for us to work out, especially for people who are overweight, BUT during physical exertion and diets, you do not need to eat them thoughtlessly hoping for the thought the more the better, you need to coordinate this with your dietician and trainer!
Yes, you can use this, but please do not forget about healthy food, it depends on health and longevity
