Probiotics: Cure-All Gastroenterology?

As many gastroenterology studies show positive results, more people turn to products with probiotics to treat stomach problems. The media hit by advertisements and the media have raised it again on the radar of those with little or no health care and are seeking alternative medical treatment.

What are probiotics?

In 1965, the term was coined to identify microbes that operated on the other end of antibiotics rather than killing other organisms, which helped them flourish. In gastroenterology, they go along with prebiotics, which are substances that are barely digested by the human stomach and help good bacteria grow as opposed to harmful diseases.

What are they used for?

· Some probiotic strains have also been documented to treat acute diarrhea in children effectively and efficiently, taking into account specific doses and time frames. The jury is still out of his mind as a deterrent to diarrhea. As for the diarrhea caused by the supply of antibiotics, they were considered a remedy and a preventive measure.

· Gastroenterology studies have shown that patients who ingested symbiotic (probiotics with prebiotics) have shown several of the indicators of colorectal cancer in their blood.

Premature babies whose children understood these microbes were less likely to develop intestinal failure and death from necrotizing enterocolitis.

· Deliberations between gastroenterology companies are still made on their therapeutic value for food allergies and weak immune systems.

· Indigestion and lactose intolerance were attenuated in several control groups that consumed yogurt with live bacteria.

· Irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease have been successfully treated by several strains of these organisms.

· Insufficient studies have been done for the gastroenterology community advocating its benefits against heart problems, liver disorders or infections that can easily infect adult patients in intensive care.

They’re safe?

Undoubtedly, experts in gastroenterology cite breast milk as the safest of all probiotics. Regarding cultured organisms, several groups, including non-gastroenterologists, have expressed concern about the lack of standards and definitions that currently allow various food and drug manufacturers to include these microbes in their label. According to the World Gastroenterology Organization, a probiotic should be classified by genus and strain, live, released in correct amounts until expiration, supported by controlled and safe human studies. The World Gastroenterology Organization also recommends that they be used as additional or additional help. Patients with illness should inform their physician if they plan to use it with the prescribed medication.
