Re: Probiotics survive stomach acid...yet another myth busted!

Did you know that the human digestive system contains over 400 different species of micro-organisms? On average, an adult human carries about 3 to 4 kgs of bacterial gut flora. This represents an enormous number of bacteria. The reason we have so many bacteria inside us is because we require them for many beneficial actions within the body.

In order for us to maintain a healthy digestive system we need to ensure that we have lots of "good" bacteria. These friendly bacteria have a number of important roles:

Improving your digestion;
Producing vitamins;
Relieving symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS);
Detoxifying chemicals;
Producing nutrients to repair the gut lining;
Increasing resistance to infections and regulating the immune function;
Preventing the overgrowth of bad bacteria.
