Microbes – a more ancient form of life, so – and more adapted. Microbes adapt to environmental changes, and the people – no. As early as 1932, scientists Freund and Kaminer noted that coliform bacteria are capable of producing a healthy person a substance that destroys cancer cells. Last 50 years – a period of particularly dire environmental degradation. Intestinal flora also activates the immune system – healthy intestinal bacteria stimulate the lymphoid apparatus, synthesize immunoglobulins and interferon, ie, exercise proper immunostimulation. Thus, the useful microflora is useful by itself. Interaction between humans and microbes began when a man appeared on Earth. The total mass of microorganisms that live in the intestines, is 3-5 kg. Due to the steady growth of cancers of particular interest is the total kantseroliticheskaya protective reaction of the organism, ie, lysis of “foreign” cells. The human body has been adapted to the hundreds of thousands of species of microbes, many of them we would live in peace together, if… If the environmental situation was still calm, the environment – free of toxic substances, and food – grade. And in terms of dry matter up to 80% of the intestinal contents. The number of microorganisms in the intestine up to five hundred. Useful microflora (bifidobacteria and lactic acid) can increase the effects of each other, that is, there is an effect of symbiosis. It is known that the useful microflora (if you have it in sufficient quantity) produces an antibiotic-like substance, and even enzymes – they contribute to the further digestion of food proteins, fats and carbohydrates. An important property of the normal flora is to maintain homeostasis, which ultimately is an indicator of health status.
