Probiotics (from proandbiota, meaning "for life"), are living bacteria that, in the proper amount, offer a considerable health benefit to its host. There are billions of "friendly" bacteria in your gut that are beneficial to your health and they are similar to the bacteria are necessary for healthy, comfortable living. The general use of probiotics is to assist your body's naturally occurring digestive flora which means they help to establish and maintain the right balance of microorganisms that exist in your stomach and intestines. If the natural, friendly microorganisms that exist in your gut are overrun or killed off, probiotics can be introduced to help stabilize the friendly flora, bringing balance to your digestive tract.
Probiotics have been shown to be beneficial in many ways. Through introducing friendly types of bacteria into your intestines you can make the environment unfriendly to the harmful bacteria, viruses, yeast and parasites that may intrude. These interactions have much to do with a healthy immune system and a healthy gastrointestinal tract. This balance can be severely altered in two major ways. One way to upset this balance is by the introduction of harmful microorganisms in the body in the form of harmful bacteria, yeast, fungi and parasites. Another way is by the use of antibiotics that, in an effort to kill off unwanted bacteria, the helpful bacteria in your intestines are also killed off. Probiotic Complete may be beneficial to get your body back into its normal rhythm by supplying active friendly bacteria into your body to return to normal.
