The eight major roles of probiotics, it turns out that probiotics have so many benefits!

1. Maintain normal intestinal function

The intestine is the largest immune organ and the largest micro-ecosystem of the human body, the human body slowly interacts with the outside world through the mucous membrane of the gastrointestinal tract, promotes the normalization of the bacterial population in the intestine through its growth and various metabolic effects, inhibits the production of putrefaction substances in the intestine, and maintains the normal operation of intestinal functions.

2. Relieve the symptoms of lactose intolerance and promote digestion and absorption

Lactose intolerance refers to the lack of enzymes that metabolize lactose in the human body, and after ingesting dairy products, there are adverse reactions such as bloating and abdominal pain. Globally, 75% of adults show signs of weakening lactase activity, compared with more than 90% in some Asian countries. Studies have found that lactobacillus has galactosidase activity, which can significantly reduce the concentration of lactose, produce lactic acid, and facilitate human digestion and absorption.

3. Enhance human immunity

Probiotics enter the intestine, on the one hand, they can colonize in the intestine and maintain the balance of the intestinal microbial flora; On the other hand, probiotics can directly act on the host's immune system, induce intestinal immunity, and exert specific immune activity by enhancing the responsiveness of B and T lymphocytes to antigen stimulation, thereby enhancing the body's immune function.

4. Prevent cancer and inhibit tumor growth

Probiotics can produce some metabolites that inhibit tumor growth, such as polysaccharides, bacteriocins and lactic acid, etc., by inhibiting the production of enzymes that convert carcinogens, activating the body's immune system, especially macrophages, NK cells, B lymphocyte activity and inhibiting cell mutations, as well as reducing the PH value in the intestine, stimulating intestinal peristalsis, so that pathogenic bacteria toxins and carcinogens in the intestine are excluded from the body, reducing the possibility of carcinogens.

5. Relieve allergic reactions

Studies have found that the more probiotics in a normal person's gut, the less likely they are to develop allergic diseases. Probiotics can inhibit the production of Ig E and effectively prevent allergies.

6. Lower serum cholesterol

Probiotics are mainly used to lower the content of cholesterol through assimilation, inhibit the activity of cholesterol synthase (3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaric acid CoA reductase), through the action of probiotic bile salt hydrolase, the small intestine hydrolyzed bile salts can be precipitated with cholesterol in food, reducing the body's absorption of cholesterol, and promoting excretion from the feces.

7. The effect of probiotics on obesity

Intestinal flora disorders play a very important role in the occurrence and development of obesity. A large number of experiments have confirmed that obesity can be effectively prevented by ingesting probiotics.

8. The role of probiotics on diabetes

Studies have found that there is also an imbalance of intestinal flora in diabetic patients. Probiotics can attach to intestinal epithelial cells by modulating the intestinal bacterial phase, beneficial bacteria, etc. Probiotics reduce the absorption of the host by absorbing glucose into the bacteria, thereby lowering blood sugar levels. In turn, the purpose of preventing diabetes is achieved.
