*******www.yourhealthstartshere**** Billions of bacteria - more than 400 different types - live in our digestive system. While we tend to think of most bacteria as illness-causing microbes that must be eradicated at any cost, there are some friendly bacteria it's actually best to have live inside us. So let's take a look at gut bacteria-the good, the bad and the ugly-and how to get the good guys to work for us. bullet The "good" gut guys The intestines are host to various strains of beneficial bacteria which help us absorb food and minerals. They also manufacture B vitamins and amino acids. Two examples of these beneficial bacteria in healthy people are acidophilus and bifidobacterium. When the gut is healthy, the growth of good bacteria helps to crowd out disease-causing bacteria and make conditions unfavorable for their growth. *******www.yourhealthstartshere****
