Probiotics are a class of “good” or “friendly” bacteria that are natural inhabitants of the intestinal tract, which helps in digestion and nutrient absorption. They aid in digestion by breaking down food into their component parts for absorption into the body. “Bad” or “pathogenic” bacteria, on the other hand, can cause intestinal microflora imbalances that lead to illness and diseases. We start life with a relatively healthy intestinal tract but lifestyle and environmental factors can greatly reduce the number of friendly bacteria allowing pathogenic bacteria to dominate and cause problems. Supplementing our diets with an effective probiotic repopulates the intestinal tract with friendly strains that improve intestinal and immune health.
