Probiotics are live microorganisms that are naturally present in some foods (kefir, kombucha, yogurt, pickles, etc.), but also available as dietary supplements.
- Microorganisms, like bacteria, are found throughout the gastrointestinal tract and can affect quality of life
- People usually correlate bacteria with illness, but there are good bacteria that can have a beneficial effect on the gut
- Probiotics can offer a wide variety of benefits from relief of chronic skin conditions to digestive and immune support
