Over 70% of your immune system is located in your digestive system.
Having a good ratio of "good" and "bad" bacteria is critical to your optimal health.  "The ideal balance is 85% good & 15% bad."
Consumption of antibiotics, dietary changes, cigarette smoking, fluctuating stress levels 
and pollution are some of the causes of microflora imbalance your gut doesn't warn you about.

What is Probiotics?
Probiotics are GOOD bacteria that keep your natural balance of microflora and promote digestive health.
Benefits of 6 strains Probiotics as below:

Bifidobacterium bifidum
- Increase resistance to gut infections by inhibiting pathogens and improving host immunity 
- Reduces the chances of acute diarrhea and even helps fight E.coli infections 

Bifidobacterium lactis 
- Break down body waste, increasing stool frequency, reduce constipation
- Aid in the absorption of nutrients 
- Strengthen the immune system 
- Reduce colds and flu 

Lactobacillus acidophilus
- Produces vitamin K as well as lactase, the enzyme that breaks down lactose  
- Provide living bacteria that help the body absorb nutrients and keep a healthy balance of good bacteria
 

Lactobacillus casei 
- It produces lactic acid which helps lower pH levels in the digestive system and impedes the growth of harmful bacteria
- Improve and promote digestion 
- Control diarrhea 

Lactobacillus rhamnosus
- Helps eliminate and prevent the growth of harmful bacteria in the intestines. 
- Promoting and maintaining digestive tract health. 

Streptococcus thermophiles
- Is a lactic acid bacterium that produces lactase, which facilitates the digestion of lactose in milk
- Decreases the symptoms of malabsorption - a disorder that occurs when people are unable to absorb nutrients from their diets
- Reduces the risk of antibiotic associated diarrhoea
