What is a probiotic?

Probiotic, prebiotics, synbiotics, as well as kefir and yoghurts with probiotics(beneficial bacteria), lactobacilli and live yoghurt cultures, affect the intestinal microflora in the bowel cavity beneficially.

Probiotic are existing or specially bred cultures of live bacteria that positively affect the intestinal microflora. Those microorganisms name is probiotic.


As a rule, bacterial cultures are meant as probiotic, although other species can be found among microorganisms that have proven their value, for example, yeast culture. But in most cases, probiotics are types of bacteria that live in the intestines.

The total number of microbes in the human body is several times the number of cells, and if we estimate the volume of microorganisms. It turns out that the weight of an adult includes symbiotic bacteria, and there are up to 3 kilograms of bacteria in an adult’s body!

Probiotic in the intestinal cavity

Most of the bacteria are in the intestinal cavity. It reduces the risk of reproduction of pathogenic flora.

However, the pathogenic flora may multiply faster and suppress beneficial bacteria. It leads to a wide variety of consequences, ranging from stool disorder to ulcerative colitis. General deterioration of well-being up to long-term chronic disease states may also develop.



Various diseases, an uneven and defective diet, sedentary lifestyle and long-term antibiotic therapy can lead to a decrease in the number of beneficial bacteria. As a result, harmful bacteria take over the large intestine.

Two mechanisms are the basis of the influence of probiotics on the body. Firstly, they help in suppressing the growth of pathogenic microorganisms and yeast infections. And secondly, they partially take on the functions of beneficial bacteria. Colonic irrigation, which is available in our clinic, improves the environment in the bowel. As a result, the intestinal microflora restores rapidly and becomes even more beneficial than before.
