What are probiotics?
Probiotics are the live microorganisms that can be consumed through fermented foods or supplements. Not one but many studies have shown that the balance or imbalance of bacteria in our digestive system is linked to overall health and diseases.
Probiotics help by promoting a healthy balance of the gut bacteria and have been linked with many other health benefits.
Probiotics are good for weight loss, digestive health, immune function and more.

How probiotics can help boost our immunity
Probiotics are one of the lesser-known ways of boosting immunity.
We need to have more good bacteria in the gut than bad, this state is called symbiosis. When we have more bad bacteria than good, our health suffers, the state is called dysbiosis.
A healthy gut makes for a healthy immune system and vice-versa. While eating healthy and exercising also help in maintaining the gut bacteria, taking pobiotics is an easy way to stay on the top of your health.
