Intestinal flora, beneficial bacteria features

Supplement to the intestinal flora

Bacteria in the colon have many names associated with them: probiotics, good or bad bacteria, beneficial bacteria, acidophilus, dysbiosis, micro flora, Proflora, friendly flora, harmful bacteria.

In this article we'll use a simple term, beneficial and harmful bacteria to refer to all the bacteria in the small intestine and colon.

The colon contains bacteria and harmful. It is estimated that the amount may be around 100 trillion bacteria, equivalent to a kilo of weight. The beneficial bacteria should be 85% of total bacteria in the colon, whereas only 15% harmful, however, these percentages are very unbalanced in most people. The good bacteria maintain the health of your colon, preventing harmful bacteria from multiplying and reduce constipation.

Most people have bad bacteria as dominant condition in the colon. And this is one of the main reasons why there are so many diseases. These people suffer from the disease in later life by the negligence and lack of balance in your intestinal flora.

When harmful bacteria multiply

The enabling conditions for the imbalance of the intestinal flora are:

Consuming toxic substances due to pollution, pesticides, food additives, preservatives, dyes, etc..

  • Drinking alcohol
  • Eating processed foods
  • Having excessive anxiety
  • Lack of fiber in your diet
  • Use of contraceptive pills
  • Use of laxatives
  • Use of drugs and medicines

Symptoms of imbalance of intestinal flora

Among the most common symptoms due to this imbalance include:

  • Candidiasis (candida albicans infection)
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Abdominal swelling
  • Gases
  • Bad breath or halitosis
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Colds and flu
  • Skin problems (acne, psoriasis, etc.).

The beneficial bacteria in the colon are composed of hundreds of species of bacteria. The beneficial bacteria are most active at pH 5.9 to 6.9, an acid environment. This allows the colon is healthy.

The colon serves as a home for beneficial bacteria, ferment specific carbohydrates, and in turn keep the colon environment slightly acidic. The acidic environment promotes beneficial bacteria and prevents harmful or other pathogens to multiply.

Harmful bacteria create an alkaline environment and are more active at a pH between 7.1 to 7.9.

Bulgaricus and Lactobacillus acidophilus or bifidus are the main bacteria that exist in the colon. It is in the ascending colon (right side of your abdomen), where the majority of bacteria. The amount of bacteria is lower in the transverse colon, and lower still in the descending colon. A small amount of bacteria found in the sigmoid colon and rectum.

When beneficial bacteria are dominant in the colon prevent the spread of diseases promoted by various agencies: as parasites, bacteria, viruses, fungi.

Specific organisms such as shigella, salmonella, candida albicans, viruses, protozoa, amoebas, staphylococci, cold viruses and influenza, helicobacter, and so on., Are responsible for deadly diseases such as dysentery, meningitis, pneumonia, influenza, encephalitis, etc. . due to the fertile ground that the dysbiosis has occurred in the colon.

Beneficial bacteria keep these organisms in the minority, which prevents them from multiplying, spreading to the blood and body organs. This is achieved by the production of lactic acid and other secretions that maintain an acidic environment.

Beneficial bacteria need to be fed to be dominant in the colon. If there is any bacteria in the descending colon, try to multiply their population. If you have a good population of beneficial bacteria in the colon, then has to make a good program to repopulate. One way to restore the beneficial bacteria may be making an enema with a supplement of beneficial bacteria.

How should be the feces

In his book, Acidophilus and Colon Health ', 1999, David Webster, says:

"The indicators of a healthy intestinal flora have a bowel movement is soft, but well formed, with amber and little or no odor, and floating in the water most of the time. When feces are dry, dark brown, very solidly formed or too loose, especially if there's a rotten smell, these are clear indicators of a flora in putrefaction, an alkaline colon. Chronic constipation, diarrhea and irritable bowel syndrome are often removed when the colon is restored and maintained with a slightly acidic pH. "

In his research, Webster said to be feeding the bacteria with whey (whey). Taking 2 to 5 tablespoons or more per day than a cup of distilled water with whey can feed the good bacteria and multiply its population. Webster recommends doing this for 30 days. After this period can be seen in the feces if the beneficial bacteria have been revived.

Products to restore the intestinal flora

Other products that are helpful to improve the population of the intestinal flora are probiotics, kefir, Brotrunk Kanne, etc.. of the following links that are given much more information.
