What Are Probiotics?
Pro (for) + biotic (life) = For Life
Probiotics are beneficial micro-organisms which are good for your health, especially for your digestive system and immunity. According to the joint FAO/World Health Organization, Probiotics are defined as, “Live micro-organisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host”.
You may think of bacteria as being harmful, however, there are both beneficial and harmful bacteria in your digestive system. Since beneficial bacteria can help digest food, absorb nutrients, make vitamins and stimulate immunity, it is very important to maintain their number.
Probiotics help to increase the number of beneficial bacteria and decrease the number of harmful bacteria in your body, thus help you enjoy your life.
