Vivomixx® for adults
In healthy adults, the intestinal microflora is in perfect balance with its good and potentially pathogenic bacteria.
Some specific situations such as diet, way of living, use of antibiotics, inflammatory diseases, anxiety, depression, stress etc, can provoke alterations of the intestinal microflora, with a consequent reduction of “good bacteria”. A decrease in the quantity of “good bacteria” present in a healthy gut triggers a condition called “dysbiosis”, an imbalance which leads to an overgrowth of potential pathogenic bacteria.
This alteration in the composition of intestinal microflora is responsible for intestinal discomforts such as abdominal pains, cramps, excess gas, bloating, change in bowel habits such as harder, looser or more urgent stools than normal. Another consequence of dysbiosis is the translocation of potential pathogenic bacteria in various parts of the human body, which may be responsible of other infections, for example urinary tract infection, vaginal infection etc. This alteration is also responsible for the change of intestinal permeability, with possible development of intolerance, allergy and inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD).
