Probiotics have formed a vital part of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern diets for thousands of years, in the form of fermented milk and vegetable products such as yogurt and pickles. They are credited, in part, for the optimal health and longevity seen in people of Mediterranean descent.
The delicate balance between beneficial and bad gut bacteria can be disrupted by many factors, including the use of antibiotics, excessive hygiene, the Western diet, modern medical treatments, and obesity.
Fortunately, Probiotic supplements can restore a healthy balance to gut bacteria and reverse these disruptions to intestine-based signaling mechanisms.
In other words, Probiotics can restore your body’s natural, intestine-based protection against a host of non-intestinal diseases and shield you from the diseases related to aging.
