Pro means For. Biotic means Life.
Probiotics, sometimes called “friendly bacteria,” are beneficial microorganisms that naturally inhabit the human digestive system.
You already have billions of bacteria living in your gut. Some are harmful (pathogenic), but many are beneficial. Keeping a balance between the good and the bad bacterial is critical to maintaining good health. Probiotics help keep bad bacteria and yeast from growing in your intestinal tract, and confer many other proven benefits to you, including vitamin production and keeping your immune system healthy.
Probiotic bacteria in our bodies are essential to maintaining good health, as proven by many years of scientific research! Normally you have an abundance of friendly bacteria, but certain circumstances can lead to a depletion of these essential microorganisms.
