We all know the importance of taking a multivitamin for our health, now many health professionals say a quality probiotic supplement is just as important.
Probiotics are considered to be nutritional supplements containing live microbial organisms that promote the growth of friendly bacteria in the body, which help by replacing bacteria in the gut that have been decimated by our polluted environment, consumption of processed foods and chlorinated water, and heavy use of antibiotics and other medication—all factors that make us susceptible to infections and diseases.
Health professionals recommend probiotic supplements for digestive disorders, gastritis, lactose intolerance, gas, heartburn, irritable bowel syndrome, immune dysfunctions, candidiasis, and as a follow up to antibiotic therapy.
We created this site as an easy-to-understand guide to the benefits of probiotics and to teach you and your family how to use them to move towards optimal health. Here you will be able to not only learn about the basic concepts and scientific documentation of probiotics but what they are, for what conditions they are useful, contraindications, safety concerns, and more.
