Naturopathic Doctor and Health Expert, Dr. Yasmin Snippe ND, RN, B.Sc. explains the benefits of taking Probiotics and how it works.
Probiotics are the beneficial microbial flora that we all need for optimal health. These “good” bacteria (and yeast) colonize our digestive and urinary tracts and the vagina in women where they grow and help to maintain the health of our mucous membranes. You can think of this in the same way as sowing your lawn with grass seed to create a thick, lush carpet of grass that can protect against the growth of weeds.
