Zusammenfassung

Die Darmflora besteht aus einer großen Anzahl verschiedener Bakterienarten, die multiple wichtige Funktionen für den menschliche Stoffwechsel, die Infektabwehr und das Immunsystem erfüllen. Das wachsende Wissen über den Zusammenhang zwischen Darmflora und Gesundheit hat die Forschung auf dem Gebiet von Pro- und Präbiotika gefördert. Verschiedene prophylaktische und therapeutische Wirkungen dieser Nahrungsmittelzusätze konnten inzwischen wissenschaftlich belegt werden.

Abstract

The intestinal flora consists of a large number of various bacterial species with many important multiple functions for human metabolism, prevention of infections diseases, and the immune system. Increasing knowledge of the relationship between the intestinal flora and health has encouraged research in the field of probiotics and prebiotics. Scientific evidence has documented several prophylactic and therapeutic effects of these food supplements.
