How Do Probiotics Work?

The trillions of bacteria in the digestive tract—both good and bad—make up the gut microbiota, which is considered a key to health. The “good” bacteria in the intestines have a symbiotic relationship with the body—they get energy from the foods people eat and provide health benefits to the entire body. Probiotics in the diet can enhance the good bacteria in the gut and improve health and disease risk.
