The word “probiotic” comes from the Greek term meaning “for life.”  They are live bacteria that are actually good for you health.  They restore the natural balance of the gut bacteria after taking antibiotics or a bout of diarrhoea or illness.

So what are the benefits of taking probiotics?  They aid digestion, weight loss, boost your immune system, help irritable bowel syndrome sufferers and diarrhoea.
Probiotics are found in food like yoghurt, kefir, sauerkraut, pickles, buttermilk, tempeh, dark chocolate, miso soup and kimchi.

If you are lactose intolerant, they may help reduce the symptoms. You can also take a probiotic supplement readily available over the counter.
