Probiotics / Acidophilus and Beneficial Bacteria
 
Researchers estimate that more than400 species of bacteria inhabit the digestive tract. Some of these are the pathogenic, or disease-producing, bacteria. But other species are considered"friendly” bacteria. To an extent, digestive tract health depends on the condition of the friendly bacteria and the control they exert over the less friendly, pathogenic variety.
 
Friendly bacteria are often referred to as probiotics for their multiple,interacting benefits. Some friendly bacteria, such as bifidobacteria can thrive only in oxygen-free environments. Others, such as Lactobacillus acidophilus,require small amounts of oxygen and are known as micro-aerophilic organisms. Asa result, friendly bacteria have the potential to play several roles.
 
Friendly bacteria produce acetic, lactic and formic acids which lower the pH inthe intestine, thereby inhibiting growth of undesirable bacteria and enhancingthe nutritional status by helping to digest food and manufacture essential vitamins.
