Probiotics – the body in harmony
Gastric and intestinal problems afflict a large number of people today. Whether it is a question of the effects of unfamiliar bacteria acquired during a holiday in a foreign culture or of the after-effects of a traditional penicillin treatment, imbalance in the gastric system can be rectified by adding “good” bacteria to the system, quickly restoring the balance in the intestinal flora.1, 2
During recent years, a number of products containing probiotics – a commonly used micro biotic food-ingredient – have emerged on the market. Probiotics usually consist of different strains of lactic acid bacteria that have a positive effect on people’s health and well-being. This is due to the beneficial effect of probiotics on the microbiotic balance in the intestines via micro-organisms.3, 4, 5, and 6
