Probiotics are living bacteria and yeasts that are good for the digestive system. They help keep the gut healthy.
They are found in yoghurt and also in supplements. Take a probiotic if you are taking antibiotics, because sometimes good bacteria are lost with the bad bacteria. This will help to keep your natural bacteria balanced and maintain gut health.
