Inside the human body, we contain trillions of Microorganisms- outnumbering human cells by 10 to 1, so think of probiotics as your own personal military. While you can receive good probiotics from the foods you eat, you need to remember, unless you are growing it yourself, it is likely that the strains are not pure. For this reason, you’re best to invest in a probiotic regimen.
