Germs in our body

Countless microbes live in our intestines. By them innumerable reactions and works are going on. Babies do not initially have these germs in their gut. But once they start breastfeeding, little by little these germs reach their intestines. Bacteria, yeasts, fungi, viruses and parasites are the microbes that live in the gut.

Looking for clarity!

Blood tests are also coming to check the different microbes that live in the gut. In it, the root components of these germs will be detected. The work performed by these microorganisms in the body and the reactions caused by these changes are very complex. This is why research is being done on their role. It’s not over yet. Let’s hope the future will give us clarity on these

Major Germs

Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium are the most studied microorganisms so far.
Benefits of Lactobacillus:
* Lactobacillus inhibits the growth of bacteria that cause ulcers in the stomach and small intestine.
* Prevents diarrhea caused by antimicrobial drugs called ‘antibiotics’.
* It also helps to reduce the effects of fat accumulated in the liver, diabetes, AIDS, inflammation of the urinary tract.
Benefits of bifido bacteria:
* These bacteria help prevent colon cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, obesity, and irritable bowel disease.
* And these two germs are active against rotavirus which causes diarrhea in children.

Microorganisms that thrive

Microbes are about 1.5 kg in our gut.
The number of these germs is 10 times more than the total number of cells in the human body.
The number of genes in these microbes is a hundred times greater than the number of genes in the human body.
In terms of bacteria, about 300 to 10,000 species of germs have made our intestines their home.
About 30-40 species of microorganisms occupy a large part of the gut.
The types and numbers of microbes that live in the gut are not the same for everyone in the world. This varies due to many factors such as their age, sex, ethnicity, living conditions, dietary habits, genetics; will differ.


How the micro-organisms living in the roots of some plants live on the plant and at the same time produce what the plants need for growth. Also, these microorganisms help the body to get some nutrients and digest food. They also contribute to our immune function. It has been found to be beneficial for colds, liver diseases, inflammatory bowel diseases, tooth decay, allergic diseases, skin diseases etc.

Products produced

The main product of these microorganisms is lipopolysaccharide (LPS). It is absorbed and helps to improve the body’s resistance. Another product, Trimethylamine (TMA) can determine the nature of the disease in the body.

Where is it found?

These are found in the lining of our small intestine, large intestine and the mucous membrane produced by the intestines. Due to the acidity of the stomach, these do not occupy that space.

Biotic species

Probiotic, prebiotic, syn biotic are more pronounced by doctors.
Probiotic A probiotic is a food that goes to our gut and does good. This food is rich in beneficial bacteria and yeast micro-organisms that enter the gut and start life.

Cheese, yogurt, dairy-based kefir, fermented cabbage, soybeans, tea, and whey are the main probiotic foods. These foods contain the bacteria Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium, and the fungus Saccharomyces boulardii.


Prebiotics are certain types of foods that we consume. It helps the beneficial bacteria grow. These foods contain special fiber. Examples of these foods are garlic, onions, bananas, seaweed, wheat bran, flaxseed, apples, oats, barley, (asparagus), watercress, and cacao.

Syn Biotic

Synbiotic is a combination of both probiotic and prebiotic.

Can everyone consume it?

Despite these various benefits, doctors do not advise everyone to take medicines containing these microorganisms. Because not all human bodies are the same. Doctors will prescribe this medicine to the patients after analyzing various aspects like the human health, the diseases he has already suffered, the medicines taken for it, his current physical condition, intestinal diseases, eating habits, body resistance.
