Do you know?
70-80% of our immune system resides within the gut.
Microbes in the lower intestinal tract help digest food and combat against harmful bacteria. When the gut becomes unbalanced with unhealthy levels of bacteria, probiotics can help to restore the balance. Probiotics have been shown to secrete protective substances to reinforce the barrier function of the intestinal lining, hence lowering the chance of harmful substance in the intestines entering into the bloodstream.
To maintain a strong digestive and immune system, you should take probiotic foods or supplements to ensure a healthy balance of “good bacteria” to keep harmful bacteria away.
