The Microbiota

The body contains huge numbers of bacteria naturally. These bacteria are part of a complex ecosystem in the gut called intestinal flora or gut flora. The gut flora performs a number of useful functions in the body and is important for good health.

Probiotics and the Microbiota

There is a constant battle going on in the gut flora between good and bad bacteria. Common digestive problems are often a sign that the bad bacteria have the upper hand. The good bacteria, which are natural to the body, need reinforcements that are provided also by probiotics.
