Probiotics are various strains of “good bacteria” that have been shown to help prevent disease, and support good health.  The specific type and number of a probiotic, may help to play a role in determining health and disease, and each one helps a specific part in your digestive tract, or body.  For example, L.acidophilus is commonly found in yogurt, and fermented soy products like miso, and helps to produce vitamin K and lactase, and is mostly found in the upper gastrointestinal tract.  Bifidobacteria is another type of good bacteria which has been found to help colitis, diarrhea, atopic eczema, and may even help with irritable bowel syndrome.
