Probiotics are dietary supplements containing healthy strains of bacteria. They are intended to assist the body’s naturally occurring flora in the intestinal tract, maintaining the proper balance between “good” and “bad” bacteria. This delicate balance can be adversely affected by the use of antibiotics, resulting in candida from an overabundance of yeast in the digestive tract.
Other factors inhibiting the growth of good bacteria are the consumption of excess alcohol, stress and exposure to toxic substances. The good news is that studies suggest a wide range of health benefits when supplementing with probiotics!
