Probiotics are pharmaceuticals, food products, or dietary supplements (functional foods) which contain microorganisms with beneficial effects, usually living bacteria. By restoring the microbial balance (of good and bad bacteria), they benefit the gut flora and thus are good for your health. Typical probiotic microorganisms are lactobacilli (lactic acid bacteria), bifidobacteria, or specific yeasts. According to a range of research results, probiotics may help to reduce cholesterol, improve digestion, and strengthen the immune system.
