• About Pre & Probiotics

    Probiotics are friendly microbes that help us digest food, maintain health and fight disease. Scientific research in probiotics has exploded in the past 20 years and is showing that these friendly microbes can be used to prevent and treat disease – particularly in our gut.

    Probiotics work mainly by stimulating our intestinal and immune systems and by displacing harmful bacteria that might otherwise cause disease. We now know that probiotics can indeed provide health benefits. However, different strains of probiotics have different effects, so it is important to choose the right type of probiotic in the right dose and duration recommended for the specific ailment or symptoms you want to relieve.
