Beneficial effects of probiotics on the Immune System

Beneficial effects of probiotics on the Immune System

For a few years now, doctors have reminded people of how important it is to take care of your gut health because your gut houses more than 70% of your immune system. A healthy immune system can help fight many external aggressors, and it has the power to improve the older we get. Whether it is to fight against the benign diseases to which we are potentially exposed throughout our life, or for more serious diseases, our immune system protects us as soon as an abnormal rate of bacteria becomes lodged in our body. In other words, it is therefore important to take care of it.

You may not know it, but ensuring balance in the gut is one of the first steps we can take to support our immune health. Getting enough sleep, drinking enough water throughout the day, eating properly, and avoiding excesses such as too much alcohol or cigarettes are just a few of the additional steps we can take to ensure that our immune system is functioning at its best. However, there are even simpler actions that we can add to this routine to support our immune health, which are the intake of health supplements, in particular those that target the proper functioning of your digestive system.

Indeed, the balance of the intestinal flora plays a major role in strengthening our immune defenses. When bad bacteria try to attack our immune system, defense mechanisms are put in place by the immune cells and the intestinal flora to prevent these bacteria from entering the bloodstream. The intestinal flora, also called gut microbiota, form a protective lining that prevents bad bacteria from colonizing and multiplying in the gut.  

A balance of intestinal flora also creates an environment conducive to the further development of good bacteria.

Clinical studies have shown that a diet rich in fiber allows the microbiota to work more effectively against micro-attacks in our environment. Probiotics, too, are there to ensure that bad bacteria don’t take over your gut’s balance and prevent immune system dysfunction. Probiotics, which are living microorganisms, mimic the action of the intestinal flora that reside in our digestive tract, supporting your digestive health and promoting a healthy immune system.
