Our gut is made up of thousands of strains of good and bad bacteria. The key is to have a high ratio of good bacteria then bad. When there is an imbalance, the immune system becomes compromised and colds, flus and digestive problems can arise. The reason it's so important to have more good bacteria in our gut is because 70% of our immune system is in our gut. Our gut controls what's going on elsewhere in the body. With multiple strains of probiotics available there are formulas on the market that target different areas of the colon. Some of these probiotics will also add prebiotics like FOS (fructooligosaccharides) which feeds the good bacteria so it can multiply and thrive. Probiotics supplements come in several forms, probiotic powder, probiotic capsules, probiotic liquid and probiotic chewables.
