Probiotic Medicine
Meaning "for life", probiotics are live micro-flora supplements given in a variety of ways to improve the balance of beneficial micro-flora in the intestinal tract. This normal microflora prevents the overgrowth of potentially pathogenic bacteria in the intestinal tract.  
 
Sometimes, due to viral or bacterial infections, diet, lifestyle changes, antibiotic use, and other factors, the normal bacteria in our intestinal tract become depleted, allowing the potentially pathogenic bacteria to overgrow  
 
Probiotic micro-flora suppress harmful bacteria such as E.Coli and Salmonella. They are also engaged in beneficial activities such as essential vitamin production and digestion of food components and are thought to have a role in stimulating the immune system.
