Probiotics

   

We know that some bacteria can be bad for you, but bacteria are a normal part of your body. Probiotics can help you make sure you have all the good bacteria you need. Probiotics are live, good bacteria that are found naturally in some fermented foods and are added to other foods or provided in a supplement for their health benefits.

Make your tummy happy with good bacteria

After consuming a product that contains probiotics, the good bacteria are passed into the digestive tract where they help to improve the overall balance of bacteria in the digestive system. Factors such as diet, stress and antibiotics can upset the balance of good bacteria in the digestive system. Probiotics can help to balance out the harmful bacteria, keeping the digestive system healthy.
