Historically, all we knew about bacteria was that they were causing infections and disease. Today, we know that bacteria are generally beneficial and, together with other microorganisms, vital for keeping us alive. Most bacteria are friendly and only a few of them cause disease. This is why it is so important to keep a good bacteria balance in our bodies. In a balanced gut, good bacteria outnumber the bad ones by ten to one. If bad bacteria start to exceed in quantity, it may lead to various health conditions.
Probiotics are good bacteria that, when administered in adequate amounts, offer health benefits to the host.
