World Digestive Health Day

May 29 is marked as World Digestive Health Day, Created in 2003 to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the establishment of the World Gastroenterology Organisation (WGO), World Digestive Health Day aims to raise awareness and provide resources and tools for management and treatment of gastrointestinal diseases and disorders. The WGO selected the “Gut Microbiome” as the theme of the 2020 World Digestive Health Day campaign.

The Gut Microbiome which comprises of trillions of microbes, live together in a harmonic and dynamic equilibrium in the intestinal tract. Gut microbiome exert permanent pivotal functions by promoting food digestion, xenobiotic metabolism and regulation of innate and adaptive immunological processes. The gut microbiome plays an important role in human health and influences the development of chronic diseases ranging from metabolic disease to gastrointestinal disorders and even cancer. Nobel laureate Eli Metchnikoff said that “the majority of diseases begin in the digestive tract when “good” bacteria are no more able to control “bad” bacteria”, calling this condition dysbiosis. Dysbiosis has been linked to several pathologies, and the list continues to grow. The scientific community has now recognized the importance of maintaining a balanced gut microbiome to maintain a healthy status. To serve this purpose, administration of probiotics is one of the strategic therapies to restore and maintain the normal state of the microbial intestinal ecosystem. Probiotics can be used both to prevent the onset of dysbiosis when the patient is exposed to predisposing conditions and as therapeutic agent to rebalance an ongoing condition of dysbiosis. Probiotics offer several benefits that helps to maintain a sound health.
