Our gut. How it works
The intestinal microflora is composed of more than 500 different bacterial species that live in a delicate balance among themselves and with human body. The colon is the region of our gut where there is the highest concentration of bacteria, between 10 and 100 billion bacteria/ml of feces material considering an average total contents of 1500 ml of feces material.
The intestinal microflora is very important for our health because it is able to:
• fight against pathogenic bacteria through a mechanism of competition and the production of antibacterial substances (bacteriocine, H²O², lactic acid, etc,);
• produce short chain fatty acids, the most important nourishment for enteric cells;
