What Are Probiotics
While we often think of bacteria as something that is bad for us, Probiotics are actually a form of “good” bacteria. They are found naturally in your body, and can be supplemented through food products like Naturally More Roasted Almond Butter. Probiotics are thought to protect us in two primary ways, supporting digestive health and immune health.
On a normal day, our bodies have both helpful and harmful bacteria in them, and for optimal health the right balance must be maintained. Many factors such as poor diet, age, illness, hormonal change, travel, stress, antibiotics, and changes in diet can disturb the balance of bacteria. Probiotics can help you to replace “good” bacteria you lose from your body (for instance, after you take antibiotics), or help to balance the “good” and “bad” bacteria in your body to keep it working like it should.
