There are billions, if not trillions, of bacteria which have made a home in your large intestine. These healthy bacteria are probiotics, which mean they are extremely beneficial to your health. These bacteria, research suggests, fight off toxins and other infectious bacteria which can lead to sickness and poor health.
Yogurts and fermented milk often contain live bacteria, which could build or even re-build the bacterial colony inside you. Healthy bacteria play a very important role in your health and wellness.
These beneficial bacteria can strengthen your immune system and aid your digestive system by pre-digesting food particles. However, as important as these bacteria are, most people do not know a whole lot about them.
