Benefits of Probiotics

- Aid in digestion and suppress disease-causing bacteria.
- Aid in preventing and treating diarrhea.
- Combats the overgrowth of "unhealthy" organisms in the gastrointestinal tract (a condition that can cause diarrhea and may occur from antibiotic use).
- Alleviate symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease.
- Helps prevent and/or reduce the recurrence of yeast infections, urinary tract infections, and cystitis (bladder inflammation).
- Lactobacillus sporogenes binds cholesterol in the gut, and may inhibit the cholesterol-producing enzyme HMG CoA Reductase.
