Abstract:

Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for our health, especially our digestive system. We usually think of bacteria as something that causes diseases. But our body is full of bacteria, both good and bad. Probiotics are often called "good" or "helpful" bacteria because they help keep our gut healthy. Probiotics are naturally found in our body. We can also find them in some foods and supplements. It's only been since about the mid-1990s that people have wanted to know more about probiotics and their health benefits. Doctors often suggest them to help with digestive problems. And because of their newfound fame, we can find them in everything from yogurt to chocolate. Researchers are trying to figure out exactly how probiotics work. Here are some of the ways they may keep us healthy: When we lose "good" bacteria in our body (like after you take antibiotics, for example), probiotics can help replace them. They can help balance our "good" and "bad" bacteria to keep our body working like it should.
