I attended The Healthy Gut Summit earlier this year, and learned from 32 experts about gut health. Although, not all the speakers on the summit ate a plant-based lifestyle, I sure learned a lot from them about this vital topic.
Probiotics have gained rapid popularity in the media, and praised by many health enthusiasts. More and more people are becoming aware of the importance of probiotics and the health of our gut/digestive tract.
The word, ‘probiotics’ is a scientific for ‘friendly’ or ‘beneficial bacteria’. The word is also derived from the two greek words: “pro” means to signify promotion of, and “biotic” means life (or relating to life). So the word “probiotic” means “to signify promotion of life”.
Probiotics are living, microbial, bacteria that work to balance the non-friendly bacteria (or flora) that often live within our digestive tract. These “good bacteria” work synergistically to prevent and heal many of the known diseases, illnesses and ailments that many folks are diagnosed with.
Probiotics like L. Acidophiilus basically create a natural and healthy form of antibiotics in the body, helping to improve and increase our ability to make anti-microbial activity against the pathogens found from the foods we eat, air we breathe and the things we touch.
Probiotics vs Antibiotics: What’s the Difference?
When you breakdown both of the words: probiotics ad antibiotics, one sounds more friendlier than the other one. The word “probiotics” literally means life giving, whereas “antibiotics” means to destroy life.
Antibiotics work simultaneously to kill the bad bacteria that cause infections, while destroying the friendly, beneficial bacteria that fight infections. Probiotics, on the other hand, help to keep our intestinal tract a healthy environment, filled with 85% good bacteria and 15% bad bacteria.
