How is bacteria beneficial to your body?
Bacteria are naturally present in and on your body. Bacteria grow on your skin and help to prevent the growth of bad bacteria. Bacteria also grow in your colon, which helps to break down food and feed the large intestine. Bacteria in your colon produce essential nutrients like Vitamin K.
Bacteria are also beneficial indirectly. Bacteria are used to make many nutritious foods like yogurt and cheese. Bacteria are also used to make drugs like insulin.

Bacteria are part of chemical cycles during which they release essential elements such as carbon and nitrogen for recycling. Bacteria decompose dead and decaying organic matter, assist animal digestion of food, and produce chemicals such as ethyl alcohol, butyl alcohol, acetic acid, and acetone. B…acteria also aid in the production of food products such as cheese, butter, sauerkraut, coffee, wine, and cocoa. Bacteria can be an integral part of the manufacture of silk, cotton, and rubber. Bacteria synthesize certain antibiotics . Bacteria that can digest and dissolve hydrocarbons are used to clean up oil spills. For more information visit the Related Link. ( Full Answer )
The bacteria in the intestines is beneficial. Acidophillus bacteria as in Yogurt is also beneficial. Lactobacillus is used commercially in dairy industry widely
One of the example is the GUT FLORA. It is needed of our body to break down food remains that have not been digested earlier in the digestive system and to discourage harmful bacteria and yeasts from invading the body. It also produces beneficial substances like vitamin K.. Another one is Lactobac…illus acidophilus , which is a bacterium that turns milk into yogurt. ( Full Answer )

Nitrogen-Fixing Bacteria change nitrogen from the air into forms that plants and animals can use easily. ( Full Answer )
Yes !. Beneficial bacteria are everywhere. They are in the food that we eat, the air that we breathe and the water that we drink. They appeared on earth over 3.7 billion years ago and have colonised virtually every environmental niche since. To date, approximately 4,000 species of bacteria are know…n to man but it is thought that there are many millions that remain to be identified. Bacteria are found in the coldest, hottest, driest, wettest, deepest and highest places on earth. They can survive in the most acidic, alkaline and salty of environments. They can eat virtually anything from dead bodies to car tyres. They have been found growing in toxic waste dumps and sites contaminated by radiation. They can help certain plants grow by accumulating nitrogen from the atmosphere. They are involved in the production of various foods and beverages like yoghurt, cheeses and wine. Without bacteria there would be no degradation. We, as humans, cannot live without them. Our bodies are covered in billions of bacteria (normal flora) that provide us with nutrients that we cannot supply ourselves and they help us digest our food.. Like every living thing on earth, it is of vital importance for bacteria to reproduce and pass on their genetic information to the next generation. Many bacteria do this in harmony with their environment by existing in a free-living or parasitic form. Of the parasites, only a very small portion of them actually cause disease and this characteristic can actually be seen as a failure of the bacteria to adapt to its environment. ( Full Answer )

Bacteria lives everywhere and can be harmful or beneficial. Humans have bacteria living in the stomach and duodenum such as Helicobacter Pylori. This bacteria is beneficial in that it regulates the acidity of the stomach. However, the very same bacteria can be harmful when the acidity of the stomach… is disrupted in which case it overgrows. Such imbalance leads to what is known as gastric ulcers. even if you ate chicken you will fart alot and you might die from chicken nugget cancer.you might die from farting alot.

Gelatin hydrolysis is the ability of certain microorganism to use the enzyme gelatinase to proteolytically hydrolyze gelatin. This means they can break the bonds between the amino acids and use them as nutrients. This helps them establish themselves and can even make them more pathogenic.
Humans have E.coli in our intestines to help us form certain vitamins. Our skin has normal flora on it that outcompete the "bad" bacteria. Plants need bacteria to fix nitrogen for them. There are many examples.
Drinking plenty of fluid is good for your body (this produces more urine). I think about 8 large glasses of water is a good amount to drink each day, more in the summer.
For the huge numbers of bacteria that live symbiotically with us, in our gut and elsewhere, it is mutually beneficial. The human body creates a lovely, safe environment for the bacteria, and they provide us with certain substances (like vitamin K) that we cannot produce on our own. Pathogenic bacte…ria are another matter altogether, but I don't think you are asking about those. ( Full Answer )
A bacteria called E.Coli lives in our intestines and our body and e.coli live in symbiotic relation that means we give food to it and it gives us vitamin K in return so it is beneficial..

There is something called an inhibitor that works in exactly the opposite way as catalysts. Inhibitors slow the rate of reaction. Sometimes they even stop the reaction completely. You might be asking, "Why would anyone need those?" You could use an inhibitor to make the reaction slower and more cont…rollable. Without inhibitors, some reactions could keep going and going and going. If they did, all of the molecules would be used up. That would be bad, especially in your body.
