Our body is host to trillions of microbes. We have them in and in our body including the skin, nose, and mouth with the highest number being in our gut or the large intestine/colon. The microbes in our gut are known as the gut flora. The majority of these microorganisms are bacteria, with a small percentage consisting of fungi and protozoa. The relation between the gut microbiota and human health is being increasingly recognized. Good health is associated with a healthy gut which, in turn, means having a good microbial population in our colon. The colon has about 80% of good bacteria which can be termed as the essential flora. Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria are the two main groups which constitute the good bacteria in our gut. This essential flora is varied in nature and it controls the other types of less desirable microorganisms called pathogens which cause disease.
The essential gut flora has multiple functions to perform in the gut. They digest plant fibers, synthesize many different vitamins, and of late have been recognized in having a very important role to play in our immune health.
Several factors play a role in shaping a normal healthy gut flora. They include mode of delivery, diet during infancy and adulthood, and use of antibiotics and similar molecules.
A healthy gut is like a rich rainforest which is lush in its vegetation. A large number of reasons lead to a depreciation of this richness. The natural process of aging, usage of antibiotics, and the popular westernized diet leads to a havoc of this microbial balance. As a result, the richness decreases. The good bacterial population goes down in numbers and their space is taken up by the bad/ pathogenic bacteria. The gut now looks like an arid desert with thorny cacti. This imbalance is called gut dysbiosis. The immune system and our ability to ward off infections diminish and we become susceptible to various diseases.
How do we address this issue?
It has been estimated that approximately 80 – 85% of the immune system is located in the gut. So, if we can restore the gut balance by repopulating the good bacteria, the gut can become healthy again. These good or beneficial bacteria which can be supplemented are termed as probiotics.
Kibow Flora™ is a probiotic dietary supplement made up of six highly documented, and clinically studied strains of probiotic bacteria. The strains found in Kibow Flora™ restore a healthy gut microbial balance, and support healthy immune function.
