Probiotics (meaning “for life”) are the first line of defense in our bodies. Probiotics refer to the “friendly” flora living in our digestive tracts that help us to break down our foods and gain nutrition from them. Probiotics nourish the gut lining and are essential for normal GI development.
Benefits of probiotics:
-Help improve digestion by nourishing the gut lining and producing some digestive enzymes
-Assist in the manufacturing of some essential vitamins such as B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, A and K
-Reduce gut inflammation
-Assist in the elimination of toxins and chemicals from the body

-Protect against harmful bacteria, fungi, & viruses
