Nevertheless, a symbiotic relationship has been developed with several species of bacteria that not only inhabit the gut, but also make up the natural commensal flora or microbiota. The microbiota, being essential in the breakdown of nutrients, helps prevent colonization by potentially pathogenic bacteria. Also, the gut commensal bacteria appear to be vital in the growth of an efficiently functioning
