has become a healthy lifestyle for more and more families all over the
world. But to provide your families with probiotics, you should become
familiar with the probiotics itself. This site will be your first source

friendly and good bacteria or yeasts normally found in human body. While
according to FAO/WHO’s definition, probiotics are: ‘Living
microorganisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a
health benefit on the host’.
The basic concept behind probiotics is that your body is
host to microorganisms or bacteria known as gut flora, that are
essential to your health. Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) are the most common
type of microbes. LAB has been used in the food industry for many
years, because they are able to convert sugars (including lactose) and
other carbohydrates into lactic acid.
Why Do We Need Probiotics ?
The negative effect of consuming antibiotics has already
been a concern among many families nowadays (including yours !). But why
Antibiotics are designed to kill germs and disease, however
in use, antibiotics kill also the good bacteria in your gut. Excess use of
antibiotics, such as any other drugs might unbalance a numbers of bacterial
types in your body. Excess alcohol, diseases, exposure of toxic substances,
and stress have also the same effect. In those conditions, the good bacteria
in your body will decrease, and at the end will allow harmful bacteria to
attack your health.
This is where you need probiotics. By introducing friendly
microbes or probiotics to your gut flora, you can strengthen your resident
friendly microbes over a period of time.

good bacteria who live in your gut flora ! But you might still wonder about
the bacteria. What kind of bacteria that can be treated as your ‘friend’ ?
