Probiotics Types and Functions

Probiotics are healthy germs which a person takes to improve intestinal and overall health. According to the World Health Organization definition from 2001, probiotics are “live micro-organisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host.”

Current probiotic products fall into three categories:

  • human intestinal bacteria
  • soil-based spore-forming bacteria
  • human intestinal yeast.

The health benefits of probiotics may include:

  • stimulating the immune system
  • removing toxins,
  • balancing inflammation caused by infections and allergies
  • controlling food and environmental allergies
  • keeping Candida Albicans intestinal yeast under control
  • fighting and controlling unhealthy intestinal bacteria like Clostridium Difficile (C. Diff)
  • maintaining the good balance of normal intestinal bacteria, viruses and parasites
  • preventing intestinal bacteria, viral, and yeast (from Candida) infections
  • aiding food digestion
