What are the medicines for the restoration of intestinal microflora of the children's gastrointestinal tract?

8 Sep 2018 wellness-studio.co.uk

What are the medicines for the restoration of intestinal microflora of the children's gastrointestinal tract? Typically, the microflora of the children's intestine is 85-98% composed of bifidobacteria, the exact rate depends on the age. In addition to them, lactobacilli, streptococci and other useful microbes, as well as some pathogenic microorganisms, live in the intestine. When the balance is disrupted, and harmful bacteria outnumber the good ones, dysbacteriosis starts developing.
There are three main reasons for the development of dysbiosis in the children's gastrointestinal tract:

  • Errors in nutrition, mistakes in introducing complementary foods;
  • Infections;
  • Antibacterial therapy in mom or baby.
If the dysbacteriosis usually occurs in older children against the background of a change in diet or taking antibiotics, then the state of the microflora of the intestines of infants is directly related to the health of the mother. Medicines for children's intestinal microflora can restore the state of the gut after various violations in the balance of probiotics.
Breast milk contains prebiotics the substances that are a nutrient medium for beneficial bacteria. Also, Mom's milk contains a lot of immunoglobulin A, supporting the immune system, and lysozyme, an enzyme that fights harmful microorganisms, destroying their cells. Thus, nature initially provided for the protection of the baby from harmful bacteria. However, if a mother develops mastitis or an ENT disease, then the shield collapses, and the baby can develop a dysbacteriosis or so-called dysbiosis.

Effective drugs for restoring children's intestinal microflora

If the bacterial balance in the body is unstable, the paediatrician can recommend special supplements: probiotics and prebiotics. People confuse these two concepts quite often. And the difference between those is as in the composition and in the mechanism of action.
Probiotics already contain useful microorganisms that are needed to normalise the intestinal microflora, i.e. victory of "good" bacteria over an aggressive form of microbes.
Prebiotics contain only substances for feeding and active reproduction of microorganisms already living in the intestine. There are no bacteria in the prebiotics which is just a so-called nutrient medium.
It would seem that it can be more straightforward: drink a probiotic, and the microflora should improve. However, this is not entirely true. Useful bacteria have to overcome many dangers on the way to the intestines: they have to "swim" through the acidic environment of the stomach, are exposed to the aggressive action of salts of bile acids and digestive enzymes. Only a few survive in the end.
Today there is another group of drugs that help in the recovery of microflora: these are synbiotics. They combine the benefits of probiotics and prebiotics, and they contain both beneficial bacteria in their composition and nutrients for their reproduction. Thus, synbiotics allow more effective control over manifestations of dysbiosis.
Supplements to restore children's intestinal microflora help restore health. And adults will be helped by colonic irrigation in our clinic in London to improve the microflora balance.
