Everyone knows about antibiotics and has used them at one time or another to get over an illness. But what about probiotics? It is a topic that is rising and is becoming a “must” in the health community.

So what is a probiotic? Simply put, it’s good bacteria! And hundreds of different kinds of bacteria live in your gut, but there are two that are most common that are called L. acidophilus and Bifidobacteria bifidum. These guys are very friendly and can seriously benefit your health by counteracting bad bacteria like E. Coli.

The thing is, you need good bacteria in your body all the time, not just when your sick. People often recommend taking a probiotic along with your antibiotic when you are ill; that’s true! However, your body will benefit from a probiotic every single day because when you don’t have enough “good bacteria” in your stomach, side effects are often in the form of digestive upset, headaches, sluggishness, irritability, candidiasis , and even anxiety.

So start doing some research and find a probiotic that you can start taking daily! Global Healing Center has a great one you can find here.
