Probiotics are Supplements of Good Bacteria
Did you know?
We have 10 times the number of bacteria in our digestive tract as the number of cells in our body?
Our gut bacteria-microbiome-affects so many aspects of our health. The good bacteria (and some good yeasts) can influence our risk of infection, allergies, and even some cancers. The latest research shows there is a definite connection between the health of our gut bacteria and our moods.
Poor eating habits, constipation, diarrhea, stress and antibiotics and many drugs can disrupt or destroy this bacterial community. Probiotics are supplements of good bacteria. To maintain healthy gut bacteria, it helps to take probiotic supplements or eat probiotic foods.
