What are Probiotics

Probiotics are beneficial forms of gut bacteria that stimulate the natural digestive juices and enzymes that keep our digestive organs functioning properly. This healthy bacteria is essential for keeping the gut flora in our stomach and intestines balanced and has many other numerous benefits. Factors such as processed foods and antibiotics can kill off this beneficial bacteria and cause health problems. An imbalance of this healthy bacteria lowers the immune system and makes us much more susceptible to illness. There are many important benefits of probiotics that many people many be unaware of. This post will share with you the health benefits of this healthy bacteria and why it should be included in our daily regimen.
