Probiotic Nutrition

We have billions of friendly bacteria living in digestive tract. Each person’s bacterial flora may be as unique as fingerprints. Friendly bacteria help in digesting the food and absorb nutrients effectively. In a sense, many components of our food cannot be digested in common— the bacteria digest it. The probiotic bacteria used in commercial products today are largely members of the genera Lactobacillus and Bifid bacterium.

Enteral nutrition generally refers to any method of feeding that uses the gastrointestinal (GI) tract to deliver part or all of a person's caloric requirements. It can include a normal oral diet, the use of liquid supplements or delivery of part or all of the daily requirements by use of a tube (tube feeding).
