Probiotics are friendly bacteria. Over thousands of years, our bodies and probiotics have developed a mutually beneficial relationship. The probiotic bacteria can’t live without us – and we can’t live without the probiotics!
To build a strong immune system, we need exposure to a wide variety of microorganisms, 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 and, intern, this keeps you healthy.
