Simply put, these are living microorganisms (such as bacteria or fungi) which, when consumed in appropriate quantities, bring the host a certain health benefit. When they are present in the intestines, they can be said to maintain the order of your stomach. They establish and maintain the balance of bacteria in the intestines, which are necessary for our digestion. In that way, the probiotic helps and supports a healthy microbiome to: increase the number of healthy microbes, compete with pathogenic bacteria for nutrients and thus block them, secrete antibacterial substances, stimulate immune functions. It has the ability to populate the intestines with good bacteria and thus prevents the colonization of the bad ones. That is why it is always recommended with an antibiotic which, since its destruction, does not spare even good bacteria. From all this, it is clear that the human intestinal system is alive and that the balance of microbes is very important. If the balance is upset (stress, poor diet, lack of sleep, aging, environmental toxins or the use of antibiotics) a probiotic can help your body. It seems that as it enters your body, it quickly understands where the problem is and reacts quickly, quickly understands where the problem is and reacts quickly, resolving the inflammation or increasing the immune response. It controls harmful bacteria by taking away their food and thus hindering their progress. Or allow pathogens a certain number, but do not allow them to release toxins. With regular use, they prevent problems from occurring, and manage problems if they occur. Some strains can be resistant to acid and bile, and some have the ability to stick (adhesion) to harmful microbes and thus carry them out of the gut. A probiotic can be, in addition to good bacteria, also a good fungus.


In addition to being in the form of capsules, as a medicine, probiotics they can also be introduced through numerous types of food. Sauerkraut is a long-standing tradition in this area and everyone knows how healthy it is (whether it is eaten as a main dish or as a salad). Then, the inevitable yogurt full of positive microbes. Fermented soy or “miso” is a Japanese spice that is added to soups, fish or frying. Its disadvantage is that it is not easy to find in our climate. Koreans have their own kimchi – a dish made by fermenting porcini in a spicy sauce, and is used as an addition to meat or fish. Pickles, gherkins are excellent natural regulators of microbial ratio. Kefir is a fermented milk product, created by fermenting milk and Tibetan mushrooms. Certain cheeses also contain probiotic cultures (cheddar, gouda, Swabian cheese). Kombucha is a fermented drink made from sweetened tea and a culture of bacteria and yeast. This elixir of youth is little known and is often rejected due to its sour taste, but it is an exceptional probiotic culture!


Foods that we call prebiotics are rich in fiber that feeds good bacteria in the stomach, such as garlic and onions, leeks, legumes (beans, chickpeas, lentils), walnuts, fennel. For a healthy stomach, it is best to consume fruits and vegetables, which is basically a prebiotic.


This fungus is a common inhabitant of our intestines and in women of the vaginal tract. However, when its number increases uncontrollably, it causes an infection. Causes of candidiasis are unhealthy life as well as diet and use of antibiotics. It is treated systemically and with local antifungals, but the use of probiotics is also very important, in order to establish a normal intestinal flora. Drugs regulate the increased number of candida, but we solve the colonization of the intestines with good pathogens by taking probiotics. They are the ones who will not allow the next rush of persistent candida fungus!
