Our bodies are full of trillions of healthy probiotic bacteria, which help with digestion and immunity. A poor diet, viral illnesses, antibiotics, chemotherapy, radiotherapy or even simply travelling abroad, can upset the balance between friendly bacteria and harmful bacteria.

There are an increasing number of chronic conditions which are now linked to abnormal bacterial flora such as arthritis, dementia, high cholesterol and osteoporosis (read more).
In situations where the natural balance between good and bad bacteria has been upset, a healthy probiotic supplement can help to restore this balance and is recommended in combination with healthy dietary changes… Read the evidence of how probiotics could help our health.
