Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for you, especially for your digestive system. We usually think of these as germs that cause diseases. But your body is full of bacteria, both good and bad. Probiotics are often called “good” or “helpful” bacteria because they help keep your gut healthy.
It’s easy to get probiotics in supplements and some foods. Doctors often suggest them to help with digestive problems. Also, you should know there are two types of probiotics: lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. Ask your doctor which is the best for you and check out the probiotic foods that are super healthy!
