Probiotics are living organisms that are beneficial for life when taken in sufficient quantities. They play a role in the healthy functioning of our immune system, digestive and excretory system. Bacteria that settle in our organs such as skin, mouth and intestines are called “MICROBIOTA”. About 85% of the microbiota are beneficial microorganisms. About 15% are opportunistic bacteria, and they harm the body when the immune system is weakened. The balance of beneficial and non-beneficial microorganisms is called “PREBIOSIS”, and the disruption of the balance of the system is called “DYSBIOSIS”.
All cavities in our body, starting from our mouth to our excretory organ, are covered with a membrane called mucous. Microorganisms living in these membranes are generally the same, although they differ from place to place. Oral flora is affected by intestinal flora changes, when the oral flora or microbiome changes, harmful bacteria multiply, our body’s defense system is damaged, gum diseases, dental caries, dental calculus occur, aphthae occur frequently, this is a result of the immune system weakened after intestinal flora disorder. is a symptom. Without treating the intestinal disorder, gingival treatments often tend to recur, so in addition to mechanical debridement, treatment with probiotics is supported in gingival treatment. Probiotic support is important, especially if antibiotics are given. Because antibiotics eliminate all bacteria, good or bad, and then pathogenic bacteria multiply again. Decreasing our probiotic bacteria leads to various health problems
1- Gas, bloating, indigestion, reflux.
2- Diarrhea or constipation attacks.
3- The weakening of the immune power and the proliferation of infections.
4-Depression, parkinson, fibromyalgias.
6-Disruption of cholesterol and sugar balance.
7-Proliferation of allergies and dermatitis.
8- Bad breath.
9- Constant fatigue is one of the most common symptoms.
Important probiotics are Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species. These bacteria are found in fermented foods such as homemade yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, boza, turnip, tarhana. The foods that create a suitable environment for the nutrition of probiotics are called Prebiotics. Prebiotic foods are leek, Jerusalem artichoke, celery, okra, banana, beet.
The immune system is our defense system that protects our body against diseases, pathogenic bacteria and virus attacks. Strengthening our immune system protects us from viral and chronic infections. We need beneficial probiotic microorganisms to strengthen the immune response, the body’s defense soldiers such as macrophages and neutrophils. Probiotics are the building blocks of the immune system, the more beneficial bacteria we have in our body, the more resistant we will be, especially against viral diseases. 85% of the happiness hormone Serotonin is produced by probiotics in the intestines, and probiotics manage to protect us from depression in this way. If we want to live a healthy life, we should consume plenty of vinegar, sauerkraut, homemade yogurt, kefir, artichokes, onions, garlic, Jerusalem artichokes, and take care of our probiotics.
