Probiotics: Probiotics are defined as microorganisms that are believed to provide health benefits when consumed. The term probiotic is currently being used to name ingested microorganisms associated with benefits for humans and animals. Probiotics include fermented foods (i.e. yogurt), dietary supplements, and products that are not ingested orally like skin lotions. Bacteria and other microorganisms that often thought of as harmful “germs,” actually provide a lot of these microorganisms to help our bodies to function properly. Bacteria that are present in our intestines actually help to digest food, destroy disease-causing microorganisms, and produce vitamins for the body. A large number of microorganisms live on and in our bodies while outnumbering the human cells ten to one. Many of these microorganisms especially in probiotic products are similar to microorganisms that naturally live in our bodies. Many local healthcare professionals examines how these microorganisms help an individual to become healthy and stay healthy.
