Clostridium difficile. If the microbiome, i.e. the totality of bacteria
in the intestine, is in balance, everything is fine. Problems
arise when the microbiome becomes imbalanced, for example
due to antibiotic therapy or poor diet over a prolonged period.
Pathogenic germs can then multiply and cause symptoms such
as diarrhoea, cramps and general malaise. The supply of probiotics,
i.e. the "good" bacteria, is intended to support the

diversity and balance of the intestinal flora.
So gut health has long since ceased to be a passing fancy. From
prebiotic dietary fibres, to ingredients for a personalised diet and
probiotics, now that people know the pivotal role the intestine
plays in overall well-being, fermented dairy products and probiotic
shots are playing a key role in their diet. Another hot topic is
the connection between intestinal health and immune defence.
