Probiotic? Why do I need that?!

Ever wonder how your GI (gastro-intestinal) tract keeps everything functioning the way it should be? You can thank the good bacteria that circulates it! Did you know that 80% of your immune system lives in your gut? So what happens when we start putting toxins into our bodies, such as chlorinated drinking water or processed foods? We start to lose all of the good stuff we need. Probiotics are live microorganisms (in most cases, bacteria) that are similar to beneficial microorganisms found in the human gut. They are also called “friendly bacteria” or “good bacteria.”Probiotic formulas are available with many different types of bacterial strains,  with the most common being Lactobacillus acidophilus. But as you'll find out, not all probiotics are created equal and not all probiotic formulas are properly produced to provide optimal benefits. Want to find out more, take a look at this article on the health benefits of taking a probiotic.
