Lactobacillus reuteri, Lactobacillus casei, Probiotics, Lactobacilus
Lactobacillus are a variety of gram-positive and anaerobic bacteria found in the gut. Lactobacillus casei can be found in the intestinal microbiota, while lactobacillus reuteri is used as a probiotic supplement. They can perform various functions in the body, such as aiding digestion, improving the immune response, increasing the absorption of lactose by the body, among others.

What are Lactobacilus benefits?
Lactobacilli are found in our body in the mouth, intestinal tract, and vagina. Better known as good bacteria, lactobacillus have numerous functions in our body and therefore should be consumed regularly to ensure the optimal amount of these agents in our body. The main action of lactobacilli is to regulate the lazy intestine and prevent infections and diseases caused by other bacteria. Other benefits of lactobacilli in our body are: regulate cholesterol, treat constipation, fight bad breath, and contribute to the control of food allergies.

The intestinal flora or intestinal microbiota is a group of bacteria that live in the intestine. Even though they are bacteria, these microorganisms are beneficial to the body in a mutual relationship, as the bacteria consume the nutrients in the area to reproduce while helping in the digestion of food. Although this is a natural community in the body, it is not always that this relationship is in balance, so some interventions may be necessary for the intestinal flora to function properly. This rebalancing can come through food supplementation, as a way to optimize the intake of ingredients that can help the development of this system.
