Re: Probiotics really help
Probiotics are live bacteria that you need in your intestines. Also, what turns milk into yogurt. They are destroyed by antibiotics and high sugar diets which allow candida and other fungus to grow causing an imbalance.
Walgreens and most drug stores will have probiotics, usually just acidopholus with a few million live critters per capsule. Health food stores or whole foods will have them with a blend of live flora in the billions. I'm using one ordered from vitacost called Nature's Way Primadopholus Bifidus.
There are many, many potential benefits to keeping your intestinal flora in balance and digestive system healthy--improving conditions such as lactose intolerence, lowering blood pressure and cholestoral, week immune system, inflammation, irritable bowel syndrome, etc.
