In previous article, we have talked about the functions of lactic acid bacteria in our body. We will be talking about its several benefits here so you will know why having sufficient lactic acid bacteria could play a big role of being healthy.
- Several advantages that lactic acid can do with your health
- Clean intestinal tract and purify the colon
The growth of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria inhibit the growth of intestinal pathogenic bacteria and maintain clean environment of the gastrointestinal tract for better intestinal flora.
- Increase liver function and prevent liver disease
Toxic compounds such as phenols, ammonia, and indole are created by the body during digestion, particularly during the digestion of proteins. Probiotic can decrease the damage of toxin to the intestinal mucous membrane by breaking down with certain enzymes. Lactic acid bacteria can adjust the balance of intestinal bacteria, inhibit the activity of bad bacteria, reduce carcinogens and toxins, and delay aging.
- Reduce cholesterol level
Lactic acid bacteria can regulate the cholesterol concentration and prevent the cholesterol increase.
- Promote digestion, synthesize multivitamin nutrition
Lactic acid bacteria can decompose lactose and protein, synthesize vitamins B1, B2, B6, B12, K, Niacin and folic acid promote the utilization of various nutrients in the body.
- Prevent constipation and diarrhea
The organic acids such as lactic acid and acetic acid produced by lactic acid bacteria can inhibit the growth and reproduction of bacteria and viruses that cause diarrhea, promote intestinal peristalsis, make defecation smooth, and avoid constipation and diarrhea.
- Prevent pathogen infection
Probiotic maintains the colon tract pH to 4.5~5.5 by producing organic acid. The acidic colon tract eliminates the chance of infection and reduces the probability of diarrhea, inflammatory bowel disorder, and colon cancer.
- Boost Immunity
Lactic acid bacteria can activate macrophages and lymphatic systems in the white blood cells of the human immune system, strengthen the immune system, and inhibit the formation of tumors.
- Improve the metabolic disorder of lactose intolerance
Some people have diarrhea immediately after drinking milk, the main reason is that the human body is insufficient or inability to secrete lactase, leading to lactose intolerance. Lactic acid bacteria can produce a large amount of lactose-decomposing enzymes to metabolize and decompose lactose in the intestine, improving the metabolic disorders of lactose intolerance.
- Improve body constitution
For people with weak constitution and long-term use of antibiotics or drugs leads to unbalance microflora in GI tract. Taking probiotics can reconstruct the healthy microflora of GI tract and improve body constitution.
