Types of Probiotic Strains

To fully grasp the role of probiotics in the beautiful and mysterious vessel that is our body, we have to start with a simple understanding of the gut. Our bodies contain anywhere from 39 – 300 trillion bacteria; most of which are harmless and most of which reside in the gut and make up what we call the microbiome. When the amount of “bad” bacteria in the gut starts to surpass the amount of “good” bacteria in the gut, that’s when individuals experience all sorts of symptoms ranging from inflammation to painful gas and bloating. Probiotics, or “good” live bacteria, help to correct this imbalance and restore harmony within your microbiome.
