What Is the Microbiota?

Our body is inhabited by many microorganisms, which live in peaceful coexistence with us; their system is called microbiota.

The microbiota varies from individual to individual and colonizes every surface of the body exposed to the external environment: skin, respiratory tract, urogenital tract, and gastrointestinal tract.

It's a vast ecosystem that includes fungi, viruses, yeasts, and bacteria, which play a critical role in controlling the various physiological functions of our organism.

More specifically, the microorganisms that populate our intestine represent the intestinal microbiota, namely every kilometer of the small intestine, intestinal villi, and the large intestine. The harmonious interaction between microbes and villi, and microbes and large intestine, is extremely important for the proper operation of our organs; they support each other - they help each other in the secretion of enzymes, in the production and assimilation of substances, and in preserving the organism's health.

Our intestine presents an ecosystem in which every inhabitant has a specific role: those who produce, those who consume, and those who clean.

Keeping a balanced intestinal flora is extremely important.

Why Keep the Intestinal Microbiota Healthy?

The balance between bacteria, yeast, and fungi is extremely important for our health. Stress, antibiotics, and an unhealthy diet, but particularly the consumption of sweets and refined foods combined with a sedentary lifestyle, lead to a disequilibrium in the intestinal flora.

In a state of dysbiosis or disequilibrium, the pathogen bacteria start to predominate and change what our body tolerates, leading to the occurrence of some food intolerances, such as lactose and, in most cases, it occurs due to the lack of bacteria able to process this sugar; this can also be due to bodily dysfunctions and disorders.

In order to keep healthy bacterial intestinal flora, it is important to follow a balanced diet combined with regular physical activity and avoid the excessive consumption of sweets and alcohol.

How to Repair the Intestinal Flora

In order to balance the altered bacterial flora once more, it is important to do a good intestinal cleaning, followed by increased consumption of products rich in  probiotics. Probiotics are microorganisms good for our organism that can replicate and colonize the intestinal tract and rebalance the microbiota, contributing to the healthy state of our organism.

Therefore, the consumption of probiotics has a regulatory action, inhibiting the development of pathogens, and reinforcing the immune system, strengthening the intestinal barrier.

Probiotic food, while good for our organism, must, however, be combined with a healthy lifestyle, a balanced diet, and regular physical activity.

Which Products Are Healthy for My Microbiota?

Usually, our bacterial ecosystem recovers spontaneously once the cause of the alteration vanishes. In order to avoid intestinal imbalances, it is important to keep a healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet, even better if combined with regular exercise.

The products that promote our microbiome's health are various: the diet should be based upon the consumption of whole-grain, natural-origin products.

Consuming probiotic supplements and fermented foods are the ways to support and increment our microbiota; products like kefir, cabbage, miso, tempeh, and others might promote the development of a diverse ecosystem. This, however, should be helped by consuming products such as legumes, oat, rice, quinoa, asparagus, artichokes, chicory, scallions, broccoli, cabbage, oranges, full of prebiotic substances, because they facilitate the fermentation processes.

What Are the Consequences of an Unhealthy Diet?

We all have a unique microbiota, depending on genetic, food-related, and environmental factors. The causes of an altered ecosystem differ from individual to individual; here are some of the main causes:

  • Food intolerances
  • Intestinal infections
  • Parasitosis
  • Smoking
  • Constipation
  • Alcohol
  • Stress
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Unhealthy diet.

Stress, an unbalanced diet, and a sedentary lifestyle can lead to different imbalances.

The alteration of the equilibrium between good and pathogen microorganisms is called intestinal dysbiosis. Dysbiosis identifies a genetic alteration of the human bacterial flora.

This condition causes a series of symptoms, mainly concentrated in the gastrointestinal tract, such as:

  • Diarrhea*
  • Abdominal pain*
  • Constipation*
  • Bad breath*
  • Colitis*
  • Enteritis*
  • Bloating*
  • Rash or redness*
  • Anxiety*
  • Depression*
  • Fatigue*.

How Much Time Is Needed to Improve the Microbiota?

As we already said, the microbiota recovers automatically over periods of time that, sometimes, might also be very long!

For example, the recovery time after a period of diarrhea and intestinal disorders might even be of one month; here’s why it is important to follow a correct diet and lifestyle.

However, if these habits are only temporary, the microbiota goes back to its original composition, making it difficult to return to a state of harmony.

This occurs because some pathogens can stay dormant and wake up when the environment is favorable to their growth.

What Are the Benefits of Consuming Bifidice?

Bifidice goes beyond your intestine. Bifidice contains Bifidobacterium bifidum,which is activated in various ways.

Bifidobacteria help the body digest food, eliminate toxins, and synthesize vitamins. It also sahpes our immune system and protects us from diseases. This positively influences weight management, mood, food preferences, and stress management. Therefore, it is important to provide our organism with such beneficial bacteria daily.

The Bifidice Technology

The Bifidice method is based on the different sensibilities of the microorganisms on the action of the digestive enzymes in the human gastrointestinal tract. Our probiotics have been selected during a specific period of their cell cycle, which allows us to manipulate their life cycle, passing safely and completely through the most aggressive environment of the gastric gastrointestinal tract. The innovation of this technology is found in the union between the growth stadium specific to the probiotic and the freezing temperatures they have undergone.

Why Ice Cream?

The freezing temperatures guarantee the best conservation of the biomass of the Bifidobacteria in a specific phase of their cell cycle and assure their resistance in the gastric tract and their efficacy in the intestine. The “ice cream” food matrix has been chosen for its physical features, of which the most important is the temperature, but also for its sensory properties: everybody likes ice cream.   Bifidice is suitable for all ages, especially for children; they are the ones that should especially be guaranteed a support of the intestinal bacterial flora. The sooner the intestinal microbiota is regulated, in a state of eubiosis, the sooner disorders and diseases can be prevented*.
