Relationship Between The Gut and Probiotics

Dr. Jee explains in Bahasa (translation In English) , the relationship between the gut and probiotics. In this video series, he will be explaining in more detail, less understood facts, no how the gut, and your health in general benefits from consuming probiotics, be it from natural sources, or in the form of supplements.

Using Probiotics to Maintain Gut Balance

In this 2nd video, Immunologist Dr. Jee explains the mechanism of probiotics in maintaining gut balance. Gut balance refers to the maintenance of a balanced community of microorganisms in the intestines. Gut balance is important for the optimal function of the intestinal tract and overall individual health. The gut microbiota, consisting of trillions of microorganisms including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and archaea, play a crucial role in maintaining this balance. Harmonious interaction between these microorganisms and intestinal cells is essential for various physiological processes, including digestion, nutrient absorption, immune system development, and protection against pathogens (disease-causing microorganisms). Probiotics play an important role in achieving and maintaining this balance through various mechanisms: Increasing the number of beneficial bacteria in the gut. Competitive exclusion. Influencing gut pH. Overall, probiotics exert their effects through various mechanisms that collectively support gut balance by promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria, inhibiting the growth of harmful bacteria, and maintaining a balanced microbial community in the gut.

Probiotics And Intestinal Barrier

In the context of bowel obstruction care or intestinal barrier maintenance, the role of probiotics is very important. Dr. Jee will share on four types of mechanisms used by probiotics to enhance the integrity and function of the intestinal barrier.

The Biomolecules of Probiotics – Short Chain Fatty Acids (SCFAs)

Short Chain Fatty Acids (SCFAs) produced by probiotics play a crucial role in disease management by modulating host physiology and immunity. Probiotics containing SCFA-producing strains have shown promise in managing various diseases, including metabolic disorders, cancer, and neurological diseases, by influencing gut microbiota composition and SCFA production.
