Probiotics for beginners

10 Sep 2020 by Ted Escobedo   1 min read

Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your digestive system. We usually think of bacteria as germs that cause diseases, but your body is full of bacteria both good and bad. Probiotics are often called "good" or "helpful" bacteria because they:

  • Help Balance the Friendly Bacteria in Your Digestive System.
  • Help Prevent and Treat Diarrhea.
  • Improve Some Mental Health Conditions.
  • Help Keep Your Heart Healthy.
  • Reduce the Severity of Certain Allergies and Eczema.
  • If you are taking a live strain probiotic supplement, it is best to take them 20 minutes after you eat, first thing in the morning or right before bedtime say experts. This allows more of the probiotics to get into the large intestines where they will have the most benefits.
