World statistics show that 83% of residents of megacities suffer from imbalance of intestinal flora, which is not the case with the population living in small towns or villages. It appears that the boons of modern civilization do not always have a positive effect on our health. On the contrary, creature comforts often ruin it. And though the World Health Organization did not include dysbacteriosis in its list of diseases, such a state of the body requires a timely adjustment.
Popular sources most often describe dysbacteriosis as a state of the gastrointestinal tract caused by deficiency of bifido- and lactobacilli and excessive growth of small intestinal bacteria. As a result, pathogenic or conditionally pathogenic flora becomes predominant in the intestine. However, such a notion of dysbacteriosis is not true: dysbacteriosis does not only exist as a deficiency of useful intestinal flora, but it is also a state of microbial imbalance of the whole organism. Dysbacteriosis can occur both on and inside the body and be accompanied with disorder of microbiota. For example, a portion of a human microbiota such as skin flora, vaginal flora or intestinal flora can become deranged, with usually predominant species being either not sufficiently presented or in excess and containing species that pullulate to fill the void.
Residents of megalopolises and big cities have dysbacteriosis not only due to deficiency of bifidus and lactobacilli, but also due to a decrease of the species diversity of bacteria that exist in the body. Inadequate microbiocenosis is caused by malnutrition, the use of foodstuffs containing antibiotics as well as sterilized and refined foodstuffs, abuse of medicines, and insufficient use of fermented milk products. In short, it is caused by what most of us do on a regular basis.
What does chronic dysbiosis cause?
- Medical studies show that dysbacteriosis is connected with the following diseases: colitis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, stomach and duodenal ulcer, periodontal disease, inflammatory bowel disease, bacterial vaginosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, obesity, cancer.
- Lack of benign or beneficial microbial colonies, which normally perform a number of useful and necessary functions such as helping digest or protecting the body from penetration of pathogenic microbes. This leads to a permanent decrease in immunity, both local and general.
- Pathogenic or conditionally pathogenic microbes, growing into a colony, release many different types of by-products. Unfortunately, a human body is unable to cope with the waste produced by oversized and inadequately large colonies, as the mechanisms responsible for removing the body waste are overloaded.
The company Lamyra produces a line of products that help residents of cities and megalopolises fight off dysbiosis. Our dietary supplements contain a wide range of probiotic cultures as well as prebiotics that promote selective stimulation of beneficial microflora.
