'Did you know that the bacteria in your body outnumber your body’s cells 10 to 1?
It’s true, and most of them reside in your gut.
But there really is no need to panic, most bacteria are quite harmless.
Having the right bacteria in there has even been linked to numerous health benefits (1).
This includes weight loss, improved digestion, enhanced immune function, better skin and a reduced risk of many diseases (2).
This leads us to the topic at hand, probiotics.
Probiotics are foods or supplements that contain these friendly bacteria, and are supposed to help colonize our guts with health-boosting microorganisms.
The importance of this can not be overstated.'
