Probiotics are living microorganisms that have shown benefits to the balance of intestinal microflora. Probiotics can be found in a variety of bacteria and yeast forms. These forms include, bifidbobacterium, lactobacillus, lactococcus, saccharomyces, streptococcus thermophilus, and enterococcus. Probiotics have many immunomodulatory effects that are beneficial to the body and good health. Probiotics demonstrate antimicrobial, anticarcinogenic, antidiarrheal, antiallergenic and antioxidant activities. Probiotics are found as nutritional supplements and as foods such as yogurt and dairy products. Many probiotics are found naturally in the body and help maintain proper balance within the system.
The combined use of probiotics and prebiotics may increase the effectiveness of probiotics.
The use of probiotics may cause gastrointestinal side effects such as constipation and flatulence although probiotics are usually well tolerated by most people.
