Healthy bacteria are essential to the wellness of the organs such as skin, gut and GU tract and helps protects against infections and illnesses.

Probiotics are beneficial bacterial which are present in foods such as yogurt and fermented dietary products. They are also available as supplements.

Probiotics have shown to cause improvement in infants and children who have antibiotics associated diarrhea. Antibiotics can alter the beneficial bacteria in the intestines leading to the diarrhea and probiotics is thought to replace the depleted good bacteria leading to intestinal health.

Probiotics supplements are not regulated by FDA and more research is needed to determine its role. There is encouraging evidence that probiotics may be useful in illness and infections of the gut, skin and GU tract.
