Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health, especially your digestive system. We usually think of bacteria as something that causes diseases. But your body is full of bacteria, both good and bad. Probiotics are often called "good" or "helpful" bacteria because they help keep your gut healthy.

Probiotics are naturally found in your body. However some medications (especially antibiotic) disturb the balance of good bacteria as antibiotics cannot distinguish between what’s good and what’s bad. Therefore during and after a course of antibiotics, you consider taking a high quality probiotic, to get the stomach health back in order.

Probiotics not only support your stomach digestive health but, because these organs play a large part in the immune system, they are also hugely beneficial to immunity, and should also be considered when trying to ward off those winters ills and chills.
