What are probiotics?
Probiotics are live micro-organisms often referred to as "friendly bacteria" or "good bacteria," which are similar to the usual members of normal human microflora communities, such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. Probiotics help to restore and replenish the good, natural bacteria in the digestive system and reduce the growth of harmful organisms.
The benefits of probiotics
Stress, alcohol consumption, certain medications and eating poorly can throw out your gut’s balance of good versus bad bacteria and may lead to dysbiosis
(a change in the microflora). Probiotics help to restore balance of good bacteria to help support general health. Having a balance of the ‘good’ gut bacteria also helps to support digestive health, skin health, and immune system and bowel health.
