There are over 1000 species of bacteria that make up your microflora. That includes some that are friendly and others that aren’t so friendly. To keep your digestive system working efficiently it’s important to maintain the right balance of microflora. That’s where probiotics come into the picture.
Probiotics are most often living bacteria, but they may also be other organisms such as yeasts. When they’re ingested these micro-organisms take up residence in the lower intestines and help maintain a healthy microbial balance.
