About the intestinal flora
The intestinal flora is a single name for all micro-organisms living in the intestine. That's about 100 trillion in total! The body acts as a host for these microbes. One species is more desirable than the other, and they can be divided into resident and passing gut microbes. When these are in balance, there is homeostasis, a key objective in our body. Essential substances such as vitamins and neurotransmitters are produced here. Moreover, the microbiome plays a key role in the digestion of food and thus in the absorption of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Our intestinal system is not only very complex, it is also just as unique as our fingerprint! The collaboration between body and intestinal bacteria is one of the most ingenious bodily collaborations.
How do bacteria and enzymes function?
Our intestinal system is populated by billions of microorganisms, each of which has its own task within the greater whole of our intestinal flora. In order for the digestion to run smoothly, the body works together with these microorganisms. With a normal intestinal flora, these types are in balance, a balance that is different for everyone. Enzymes are able to accelerate all kinds of processes in our body: they are the workhorses of our body. Enzymes can sometimes speed up processes up to a trillion times! Digestive enzymes act as a kind of catalyst in our intestinal system, then. They are 'chemical factories' in our body that deserve our attention.

The unraveling of our intestinal flora
We are gaining more and more insight into the vitals functions of our intestinal flora, but actually we still know very little about this mysterious 'organ' in our body. The knowledge we have today is probably just the tip of the iceberg! We are slowly beginning to understand the special ways bacteria communicate with each other through a mechanism known as 'quorum sensing'. The mechanism enables bacteria, through the secretion of signal molecules, to be in constant conversation with each other and to coordinate their behavior. They can know, among other things, how many congeners they are with, in order to subsequently trigger a synchronous reaction in a certain number of congeners. Friendly bacteria communicate and work together through quorum sensing, a phenomenon that remains as fascinating to many researchers as it is mysterious.
The History of Probiotics
Although the term 'probiotics' dates from 1953, the principle is much older. The first traces of the use of probiotics date back to the Neolithic period, between 10,000 and 5,000 BC. Cattle herders in the Middle East at the time kept the milk in sacks made from goat skins. Because the sun was shining on it, the milk began to ferment through a combination of lactic acid bacteria and yeasts. The origin of other fermented foods, such as kefir, beer and wine, also dates back to about 7,000 BC. The importance of these, sometimes accidental discoveries, however, came to light much later, in the 19th century. In this century, French chemist and biologist Louis Pasteur developed his theory that the cause of many diseases was a tiny living being, which he called a "microorganism." This microbe theory is one of the most important discoveries in medical history that has led to many new insights in the field of microbiology. However, the real science of probiotics in Europe only started in the 1990s. Since then, probiotics have been the subject of countless clinical studies.
