What are Probiotics?

Probiotics, defined as live microorganisms with documented health benefits4, have become a well-recognised option to support the composition of a beneficial microbiota in the gastrointestinal tract. Different strains have been documented to have different health benefits and it is very important to be sure of the strain contained in the probiotic.
