What are they?
Probiotics are live bacteria, microorganisms, that facilitate digestive functioning in the human body. Most of the bacteria are considered probiotic but in specific terminology, Lactobacillus is commonly found across fermented food and beverages.
What do they help with?
These microorganisms restore the natural balance of gut bacteria when the number of bad bacteria is higher than the number of good bacteria in our gut. This disproportion can happen due to illness, medication such as antibiotics, and poor diet.
Subsequently, treatments for conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, and diarrhea caused by antibodies all include probiotics.
