For every cell in our body there are about ten bacterial cells. The microflora in our gut plays an active role in a wide variety of diseases, and, it could affect our health status throughout life. People over 60 can have as much as 1,000-fold less friendly bacteria in their guts compared to younger adults, and increased levels of disease-causing microbes. For this reason, the importance of probiotic supplementation is crucial with advancing age. Recent research also shows that microorganisms present in our gut can affect how well we age, as well as our mental and immune function. Studies have demonstrated that consumption of the probiotic strain Bifidobacterium Lactis could lead to increased disease-fighting capacity of white immune cells, thereby boosting the immune system in aging seniors.
