What are probiotics?
The word itself comes from the Greek meaning “for life”. Probiotics are “friendly” bacteria that live in our digestive track and help maintain and protect gastrointestinal health.
What are prebiotics?
PREBIOTICS encourage the growth of the existing good bacteria in your gut and possibly stimulate the growth of probiotics. As a result, they will help to favor an optimal gastrointestinal health.
What is a CFU?
CFU stands for Colony-Forming Units. The number of CFU is high (often in the billions) to ensure that the microorganisms are still alive when they get to your gut.
What is a strain?
STRAINS refer to the origin of the live microorganisms contained within the probiotic itself and they are usually accompanied by a long Latin name. Each strain offers a different health benefit and combining complementary strains helps to target the overall desired benefit of the probiotic.
Why should I take probiotics?
