Digestive Health – PROBIOTICS – Giving Bacteria a Good Name

Enrich Your Body with Beneficial Bacteria

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria found naturally in the intestinal tract. Acidophilus, which is commonly found in yogurt, is one popular type of probiotic and is especially helpful for promoting a healthy intestinal balance. Probiotics nutritionally support the digestive system by promoting a favorable environment for the absorption of nutrients.

Clinical trials show that probiotics (a general term for substances that promote the growth of microorganisms_ may help support gastrointestinal health by establishing “healthy colonies” within the intestines. A clinical trial that tested 137 subjects over four weeks showed that the probiotic Acidophilus was also effective in improving the health of the intestinal tract.
