The sum of the organisms in our gastrointestinal tract is known as the gut microbiota. A healthy balance of our gut microbiota is important for digestive and overall good health. Evidence suggests that if there is an imbalance between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ bacteria it can cause adverse health effects. Some symptoms associated with an imbalance of the gut microbiota include bloating, flatulence, abdominal discomfort, constipation or irregular bowel movements.
The composition of our gut microbiota is highly divergent, and this diversity is likely to be important in health maintenance. Broad-spectrum probiotics, that is those with a higher number of strains, support this diversity.
What may cause an imbalance?
An imbalance may occur after the use of some medications, with poor dietary habits or in certain illnesses.
