What are probiotics?
Residential bacteria form colonies in your gastrointestinal tract, mouth, and vaginal tract. Transient bacteria are travellers that are just passing through. Probiotics are another term for friendly bacteria that live and work in your gastrointestinal tract every day of your life. Think of them as the “home guard,” a mighty bacterial army that defends your body against dangerous invaders. Having sufficient numbers of these friendly bacteria in residence can help prevent a wide range of health problems.
