Between the ages of 8 and 60, the intestinal flora should largely remain stable. In adults, a healthy intestinal flora contains groups of bacteria including Bacteroidetes, Lactobacillus, Enterococcus, Clostridium, Fusobacterium and Staphylococcus. The adverse effects of poor diet, stress or lack of exercise can cause unhealthy bacteria to multiply. We call this "dysbiosis" - a microbial imbalance.
Bad bacteria produce increased amounts of gas, which can lead to discomfort and flatulence. In adults, constipation can also cause bad bacteria to colonise the gut. In this case, it's a good idea to take probiotics. These rebuild the intestinal flora, reducing wind and constipation. Other illnesses can also lead to constipation, including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), diabetes, diverticulitis and bowel cancer. Certain medications and laxatives can also lead to constipation.
