Bacteria thrive in our bodies. There are around 100 trillion bacteria in the digestive system, which is more than the number of cells in the body. The weight of these bacteria is about 4 lbs (1.8 kg).
Depending on the species, bacteria can be good or bad for your gut. When bad bacteria dominate, the effects include diarrhea, flatulence, bloating, intestinal toxicity, constipation and malabsorption of nutrients.
A national survey of over 2,000 adults showed that 72 percent of Americans experience gastrointestinal discomfort of some kind multiple times a month, and most experience these issues for over 6 months.1 These health concerns result in time lost at work, school and play. They also appear to be occurring with much more frequency. While many digestive discomforts were almost unheard of decades ago, they are cropping up more frequently and in much younger people as well.
One way to help support digestive health is to be aware and take care of our intestinal flora—the trillions of bacteria that make the digestive tract their home. This includes maintaining the delicate balance between good and bad bacteria in your gut.
