How to strengthen your immune systemPrint
The vital part of your system
Probiotics have formed a vital part of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern diets for thousands of years.
The form of fermented milk and vegetable products such as yogurt and pickles.
They are credited, in part, for the optimal health and longevity seen in people of Mediterranean descent.
In recent years, the enormous importance of the gut bacteria and their influence on e.g. the immune system has been increasingly recognized.
Although Hippocrates (born 460 bc) – known as the father of medicine stated: “All disease begins in the gut.”
More than 70% of the human immune system reside in the gut.
But the intestinal immune system comprises more antibody-producing cells than the rest of the body – together!
The delicate balance between beneficial and bad gut bacteria can be disrupted by many factors.
Including the use of antibiotics, excessive hygiene, the Western diet, modern medical treatments, and obesity.
And as you age, your bacterial population gradually shifts towards a disease-promoting, rather than a disease-preventing state—simply because of aging!
In other words, probiotics can restore your body’s natural, intestine-based protection against a host of non-intestinal diseases and shield you from the diseases related to aging.
Fortunately, probiotic supplements can restore a healthy balance to gut bacteria and reverse these disruptions to intestine-based signaling mechanisms.
