Probiotics are good bacteria that your body needs. Our bodies are full of good and bad bacteria. We lose good bacteria when we take antibiotics and we need to always make sure our good and bad bacteria are balanced.
Good bacteria is essential for proper gut health. Probiotics help send food through your gut by affecting nerves that control gut movement.
In addition to gut health, researchers are convinced that probiotics also aid with other parts of the body like your skin, oral health, urinary and vaginal health, and more. Some researchers are even convinced that a healthy gut relates to our mental health.
