Learn About Probiotics
January 1, 2012 | By Rachel Leone
In this section, we explain what probiotics are and how probiotics can change your life.

Probiotics are defined as microorganisms that live inside your intestinal flora or gut where bacteria live, grow, thrive, and colonize. Microorganisms cannot be defined as probiotics, unless they benefit the host in some form. So, what are probiotics? Probiotics can take two forms: bacteria and yeast. The bacteria form is the best known and most documented.

Probiotics and Its Benefits

Probiotics are good bacteria that live inside your intestines, and do much more than rest there.* They work around the clock to give you all the benefits of a better, healthier life.* Clinical studies have determined that probiotics help in two major ways.* Digestive health and support of your body's natural defenses are the primary job duties of the probiotics living inside your gastrointestinal tract.*
