What exactly are probiotics, and why do I need them?

 

Probiotics are healthy bacteria that live in your digestive tract, where they aid digestion and keep your immune system functioning properly. However, antibiotic use, stress, and an unbalanced diet can disrupt their normal balance in your gut, reducing their protective effects.

To improve your digestive health and its impact on your overall well-being, it's definitely a good idea to boost your intake of probiotics. A high-quality probiotic supplement is easy to take on a daily basis, and ensures you receive the targeted probiotic strains to relieve symptoms such as gas, bloating, and abdominal discomfort.
