Probiotics are live bacteria found in yogurt, fermented foods and pills. It is introduced as an advantage for the human digestive system. In the colon humans normally have trillions and trillions of bacteria. Each time they swallow, they usually ingest bacteria. Many of these swallowed bacteria can help, while most of them are simply safe and do not cause problems. For anyone who takes a probiotic far beyond yogurt, it is a question of whether it really benefits the health.
Bacteria have repute for disease, so it may seem–literally and figuratively–difficult to swallow the idea of throwing down a few billion a day for your health. But an increasing number of scientific evidence suggests that some food and supplement diseases containing certain types of live bacteria may be treated or even prevented. Northern Europeans consume most of these beneficial microorganisms, named probiotics (from pro and biota, meaning "for life"), and because of their tradition of eating foods fermented with bacteria, such as yogurt. In Japan too, probiotic drinks are big business.
