How many of you are taking probiotics? Be honest! Well, I was just like you, hearing all about them, but balking at the thought of having to take them on an everyday basis and the cost of it. In the last few years doctors started recommending that we do take it, and there is a serious reason behind it. I am pretty sure that it is the thing for me and my family. It helped me overcome my dermatitis and so much more than that. My husband, who is dead against all vitamins came down with the nasty stomach bug that was going on in his work. His co-workers were out for a week and he was back to his fighting form within two days, everyone was amazed and wanted to know what he has taken. Probiotics help myriad of symptoms and are needed for much of the body's functions. I really see the benefits of it and will continue to take it for the rest of my life. But let's start from the beginning, shall we?
What are probiotics?
Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health, especially your digestive system. We usually think of bacteria as something that causes 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. They help with myriad of health conditions, like digestive problems, IBS, skin conditions, cancer, and so much more than that! Probiotics hold the key not just for better health and a stronger immune system, but also for healing digestive issues, mental health illness, and neurological disorders. I won't bore you with all the scientific stuff, you can find it out for yourself, all the info is out there, you can start with Wikipedia page, but I can only speak for myself and the experience I had.
