The role of bacteria - lactobacilli in the body
The concept of prevention and treatment of infectious diseases of the digestive system by bacteria called probiozą (pro - in the direction, bios - life). Introduced in the interwar period, the pharmaceutical preparations containing live cultures of lactic acid bacteria - Lactobacillus and cidophilus have failed because they are not resistant to hydrochloric acid which occurs in the stomach and bile salts in bile secreted by the liver. They also have limited ability to adhere to the intestinal epithelium and, consequently, does not colonize the gastrointestinal tract. Served, however, in the form of yogurt or sour milk may have beneficial effects on the body, lowering blood cholesterol, by inhibiting its absorption from food. Or for some people, to a large extent, to reduce or remove the symptoms - nausea, cramps, bloating and diarrhea, associated digestion of milk sugar contained in milk, caused by a deficiency of the enzyme - lactase. Sour milk products containing lactic acid bacteria can be treated effectively threatening diarrhea in infants, caused by infection with bacteria from the group - Salmonella (typhoid fever) and Shigella (bacillary dysentery). It was also shown that the efficacy of fermented milk (yogurt) may be even greater than that of strong antibiotics such as neomycin.

Only recently started to produce pharmaceutical preparations containing live cultures of lactic acid bacteria in the form of protecting them from hydrochloric acid, their documented Acid and żółciooporności. This type of bacteria is often referred to as probiotics, and made preparations based thereon - probiotics. Today we know that their medicinal properties are associated not only with species of bacteria, but also with specific strains within those species. Therefore, it is necessary to carefully selected by the producers of these strains of probiotics to create a prophylactic and therapeutic preparations.

Probiotics
Probiotics delivered to the body, in a positive way improve the balance of intestinal microflora and the physiological functions of the gastrointestinal tract. Consuming them strongly positive impact on our health.

The criteria to be met by probiotics:
  • should come from the normal microflora of the human body,
  • microorganisms must be safe for people and to have clinically confirmed positive effects on human body
  • should be resistant to stomach acid and digestive enzymes and bile,
  • should have the ability to colonize the human gastrointestinal tract and permanent adhesion to the intestinal epithelium
  • must produce substances that inhibit growth of pathogens that cause intestinal infections, diarrhea, or tooth decay,
  • it is also necessary to improved rather than worsened the taste of food products that enrich.

 

Currently, one of the most preferred bacterial strains for the production of probiotic is Lactobacillus casei. This bacterium from the human gastrointestinal tract, is resistant to the action of stomach acid, bile salts, and shows a greater ability to adhere to intestinal epithelial cells than other strains of bacteria. So has the capacity of permanent colonization of the gastrointestinal tract. L. casei produces substances that inhibit the development of many of our health-threatening bacteria, including strains of Clostridium Pseudomonas, Staphylococcus and Enterobacteriacae. This does not inhibit the development of other types of lactic acid bacteria

The population of intestinal bacteria is ten times larger than the size of our cells in the body and consists of 400 different strains. It is easy to realize the importance and impact that microorganisms can have on our health. In the final section of the large intestine and excrement - or stool, is about one trillion different bacteria in one gram of colon contents or feces. Calculated that the average healthy human colon is about 1 kilogram of bacteria. These bacteria belong to different species, not just those that harm, but those that heal. Fifty percent of fecal mass is formed from living microorganisms. Factors stabilizing the proper multiplication of bacteria in the gut are - soluble and insoluble fiber, which are the backbone building blocks of plants.

Lactic acid bacteria - Lactobacillus acidophilus colonize the human intestine and adult intestine Biphidobacterium small children on a diet of milk and adults consuming milk. Disorders in the quantitative composition of these beneficial bacteria to our health for pathological strains of the genus - Proteus, Clostridium, Staphylococcus, Escherichia coli, Salomonella, Shigella may present with abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, bloating, diarrhea or constipation stool. Some strains of these bacteria can produce toxins, causing the death of the mucosal cells lining the intestinal wall from the inside to form erosions and some may produce carcinogenic compounds. A good example is the bacterium Helicobakter pylori, whose metabolic activity leads to chronic gastritis, duodenal ulcers and in a few cases of gastric cancer.

Most bacteria lactobacilli exhibits antagonistic activity against certain pathogenic bacteria. Particularly active in the production of antibacterial substances in relation to the strains of bacteria that cause food poisoning shows producing Lactobacillus acidophilus: acidolinę, acidofilinę, laktacynę and laktocydynę. Thanks to these properties govern the composition of bacteria acidophil gastrointestinal microflora. Their antibacterial activity was used in medical practice. Preparations containing probiotic exhibit antitumor activity of the liver and large intestine, secreting substances protein - sugar (glycopeptides). Probiotic preparations for the operation it is also used in the treatment of neuromuscular disorders - psychological distress and associated liver cirrhosis (hepatic encephalopathy). This is a consequence of ammonia toxicity in the body that attracts a result of inability to neutralize the ammonia by the liver. They have the ability to inhibit the growth of pathological bacteria and fungal decay, contribute to the detoxification of metabolic products released by neutralization by ammonia and free phenol. It gets to be beneficial therapeutic effects in patients with diarrhea and purulent inflammation of the colon. Having a positive effect on the immune system, stimulating the immune response, or intensifying, thus increasing its resistance to pathogens. Assist the treatment of bronchial asthma, infectious diseases, respiratory diseases, allergic skin inflammation, fungal infection and urinary tract infections. Are involved in the production of vitamins - B1, B2, B12, nicotinic acid, folic acid, digestive enzymes, lactic acid, acetic, propionic and butyric acids and fatty acids, which are an energy source for cells throughout the colon and body. Stimulating peristalsis, facilitate digestion and absorption of nutrients and prevent constipation stool. Reduce the absorption of fatty compounds in the intestine, thus lowering overall cholesterol levels.

Unfavourable changes in the composition of intestinal microflora may result from:
antibiotics, sulfonamides and chemical pharmaceuticals, acute and chronic infectious diseases,

  • use of drugs that affect the quantity and acidity of gastric juice secreted,
  • taking hormonal preparations and gestegenów as contraceptives,
  • changes in diet on wysokowęglowodanową,
  • penetrate the gastrointestinal tract large amounts of pathological bacteria from the outside, weakening the immune system in acute and chronic diseases,
  • Interaction between bacteria,
  • emotional stress
  • X-ray irradiation,
  • hemioterapii in the process of cancer treatment.

The use of probiotics is becoming a very important part of a balanced diet. They can sometimes replace the function of antibiotics in the treatment of infectious diseases. It highlights in particular their selective bactericidal action, without fear of overdose and the unwanted side effects. They are used prophylactically, but mainly as a corrosion inhibitor before the so-called gut. dysbakteriozą - mutual unbalance the equilibrium composition of the bacterial flora of the colon. As a medicinal preparations may be useful in treating disorders of the gastrointestinal tract. They are not drugs in the strict sense of the word, because you can also buy them in stores. There are also medical preparations of oral or vaginal, also available at pharmacies without a prescription. May include in its composition varying number of active bacteria and vary their type, used to produce the product. The capsule may contain one - from 2 billion to 2 trillion bacteria. The type strains used determines the manufacturer of the drug. Choosing the product should be guided by the guidelines for their use.
