ProbioticsProbiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are either found in food, or taken as dietary supplements to help promote gastrointestinal balance. While there is still ongoing research to determine the benefits of taking probiotics as a dietary supplement, many doctors and nutritionists credit probiotics for assisting the immune system by creating a healthy flora environment in the digestive track.
You can find probiotics naturally in cultured dairy products such as kefir and yogurt, as well as other fermented foods like soy and miso. Many people refer to probiotics as ‘friendly’ bacteria.
