Digesting the difference between good and bad gut bacteria

Share This Post

The human body naturally produces roughly 10 times more bacterial cells than human cells, these bacterial cells make up the microbiota in your gut. Recent evidence has shown that your gut microbiota can aid in protecting your body against infections. Your gut produces both “good” and “bad” bacteria, and keeps them both in balance. It’s when the “bad” bacteria dominates, and the “good” bacteria is outweighed, that we then have an imbalanced gut microbiota.

Where can I avoid “bad” bacteria?

The most important way to protect your “good” bacteria is to avoid fast foods, junk snack foods, usings medications when not necessary as well as drinking alcohol and soft drinks. Antibiotics are a type of medication that completely wipes out you gut microbiota, Good and the Bad! If your doctor feels that the infection is bacterial from your symptoms, then antibiotics is essential. However, if the doctor believes it is just a virus, do not take antibiotics as the infection isn’t a bacterial one and will cease to work on the infection.

If consumption of antibiotics is necessary, be sure to speak to your doctor about any new gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms that may arise from taking them, such as diarrhoea and/or constipation.

How can I introduce “good” bacteria into my diet?

Taking probiotic supplements that contain Lactobacillus or Bifidobacteria on a regular basis can restore the “good” bacteria within the gut. This supports the balance of friendly flora within the digestive system and to help strengthen both the immune and gastrointestinal systems. 

Probiotics are cultures that naturally occur in some foods and are added to other food products. However, the ‘good’ bacteria found in these foods need to survive the process through to the gut in order to be effectively consumed. Consuming a probiotic supplement can additionally aid the consumption of probiotics found in food into your system. NC Polybac® Everyday contains 5 Billion CFU of Bifidobacterium lactis and Lactobacillus acidophilus, producing an adequate level of bacteria in the right strains to achieve the health benefits that probiotics offer. 

Consuming health foods such as walnuts, a food found to be high in prebiotics can additionally aid the functionality of taking probiotics. Prebiotics have been found to be essential to producing a healthy gut environment. Together, probiotics and prebiotics produce a big jump in the numbers of beneficial bacteria, and the bacteria’s functional capacity was found to have improved as well.
