Enterovital

ENTEROVITAL is made from the association of three strains taxonomically identified of lactic acid bacteria belonging to bacterial species usually present in the intestinal flora. These species have been freeze-dried to maintain their vitality, with inulin (indigestible vegetable fibers) and lactoferrin, a milk protein which is part of the family of transferrin, which are responsible for iron uptake and transport.

Intestinal dysbiosis

The gastrointestinal tract is populated by the microorganisms that form the microflora, the so-called microbiota. The species and the number of microorganisms present in the intestine condition the health of the individual hosting them for better or for worse. When the balance of the composition of the intestinal microflora is broken, it is called intestinal dysbiosis. This can cause disturbances in the digestive system or in other organs and systems.

The microflora of the gastrointestinal tract represents an extremely complex ecosystem. The microflora is believed to be composed of over 50 genera of bacteria divided into over 500 different species. An adult man’s gastrointestinal tract is estimated to contain 1014 viable microorganisms, which is 10 times the number of cells within the human body. Some researchers have defined this microbial population as an additional organ similar in size to that of the liver (1-1.5 kg in weight) and which carries out a number of biochemical transformations and reactions similar to the number of biochemical reactions carried out by the liver itself.

Intestinal dysbiosis can be induced by easily identifiable causes, such as an inappropriate diet, gastroenteritis, antibiotic therapy or alcohol abuse, but more often multiple causes concur simultaneously. Among the various causes, stress is of extreme interest. Recurrent or chronic stress conditions determine the frequent release in the intestine of substances, such as cortisol and catecholamines, which can alter the growth and attitude of the microbiota.

Dysbiosis conditions have been linked to numerous pathological states such as irritable bowel syndrome, chronic inflammatory bowel disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, obesity, some forms of cancer.

The alteration of the intestinal microbiota is determined by a change in the conditions of the environment in which it is found, the intestinal lumen, or the introduction of substances that cause direct damage to the microorganisms that compose it, such as antibiotics or alcohol . Underestimating the states of dysbiosis can expose you to the risk of triggering chronic disorders at the level of the digestive system or in other organs. To address intestinal dysbiosis, it is therefore essential to correct any incorrect behavior, such as the inappropriate use of some drugs, the introduction of alcohol, an unbalanced diet. This must be followed by the introduction of substances that protect the tissues that make up the walls of the intestinal tract, which have undergone insults of various kinds and therefore must be protected. Besides, it is necessary to promote the restoration of the balance of the microbial flora both by making available the substances by which the good bacteria can proliferate, the so-called prebiotics, and by introducing the good bacteria themselves, the so-called probiotics. Prebiotics are substances of food origin that cannot be digested by our body but are essential for promoting the selective development of good intestinal bacteria such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli, which represent probiotics, proliferate at the expense of potentially pathogenic microorganisms and strengthen intestinal defenses, gradually reducing intestinal symptoms.
