Friendly Colonization
1.What is the benefit of probiotic ingestion?

Probiotic ingestion has been linked to many disease-preventing and health-promoting factors, such as: healthy colonic cell growth, including a possible reduction in colon cancer; degradation of toxins; synthesis of many B vitamins, such as biotin and riboflavin; boosting of the immune system by increasing the activity of phagocytes (cells that eat dead and invading cells); and reduction in vaginal yeast infections. For these reasons, as well as other possible benefits, many Japanese and Europeans consume yogurt or yogurt drinks every morning the way many Americans drink coffee.

2.What is probiotic?

the term "probiotic" refers to friendly bacteria such as Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactobacillus bulgaricus - yogurt's starter cultures. Probiotic bacteria metabolize undigested carbohydrates (such as lactose) through fermentation between 36° and 38°C, which produces short-chain fatty acids: acetate, propionate and butyrate. These short-chain fatty acids may promote intestinal cell growth, enhance water and mineral absorption, and prevent yeast, mold and "unfriendly" bacteria growth.
