Probiotics are good bacteria that live throughout your gut and kill harmful bacteria, viruses, fungi, and yeast. They also help you break down and absorb the foods that you eat. Years ago milk, cheese, and naturally fermented foods like homemade buttermilk and sauerkraut were plentiful with healthy bacteria. That isn’t the case anymore. Some yogurts contain probiotics, but usually just one strain and in a low dose. Probiotics need to be replenished on a continual basis. Everyday stress, chlorinated water, fluoride, alcohol, birth control pills, and poor diet are all killers of probiotics. Prescription antibiotics kill all bacteria in the body. When the good bacteria are depleted, yeast, fungi and other pathogens have a greater opportunity to do harm to your body.
Probiotics help with: allergies, skin problems, bad breath & body odor, yeast & fungal infections, constipation & diarrhea, immune system, and overall well being.
