Good Bacteria & Gut Flora

Intestines in body-labelledGood Bacteria

Good bacteria are among the intestinal microbes (microscopic parasites) that live in your intestines.  Some bacteria are good and some are bad.  The good ones help make up your intestinal flora (or gut flora as some people call it).

Exactly where do the good bacteria live?

They live in the digestive tract which is a long tube that begins at your mouth and ends at your anus where you pass your bowel movements.  The first section of the digestive tract has a tubular section that runs from your mouth to your stomach called the food pipe (a.k.a. esophagus).  The digestive tract has another tubular section that runs from your stomach to your anus as labelled above.  The good bacteria are now known to live in the stomach as well as the large intestines.   The city of good bacteria and other microbes that live in the colon is called the intestinal flora.

What does the intestinal flora do?

The intestinal flora consist of many tiny microscopic microbes like good bacteria and fungi that live in the colon.  They are considered good microbes since they help:

  • Digest your food.
  • Keep bad microbes from taking over your intestines.
  • Keep moisture in your stool.
  • Bulk up your stool and lead to an urge to pass your bowels.
  • Bulk up your stool so the fiber content can act as a broom and sweep your intestines clean.
