Health Canada and the World Health Organization define probiotics as “live microorganisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit to the host.”⁸
The human body hosts approximately 100 trillion microorganisms, also known as microbiota or microflora.
When the flora in your digestive system becomes imbalanced due to antibiotics, viruses, or unfriendly bacteria, it can lead to abdominal discomfort and diarrhea. Probiotics help balance your gut flora to support a healthy digestive system.
