We all know that probiotics are good for you…but why? This “good” bacteria” helps improve digestion, which in turn helps improve the absorption of nutrients such as vitamin B and C. These living microorganisms also help with the digestion of dairy, plus helps ﬁght off infection. And if you’re on an antibiotic, PRObiotics will prevent diarrhea and stomach upset associated with the drugs.
So how does this super bacteria work? Probiotics are similar to the naturally occurring ﬂora in your gut. And studies show that healthy gut ﬂora is linked to a healthy immune system. In fact, 70% of our immune system is concentrated in our gut. You can hit your local drug store and pick these micro organisms up in pill form. The average healthy person should look out for the bottle that says 1 billion live active cultures.
