Here are some additional facts about probiotics from the ABC Health and Well-being website!
Probiotics have become more popular over the last 10 to 20 years, along with vitamins, wheatgerm, and various other alternative and complementary medicines. The idea of restoring our normal intestinal flora and putting us back into balance, without using drugs, makes them seem natural and safe.
They’re classed by the Therapeutic Goods Administration as complementary medicines. You can find them in supermarkets in fermented milk drinks and some yoghurts, and in health food stores and pharmacies as capsules and powders.
The most commonly used probiotics are yeast, particularly Saccharomyces, and bacteria, particularly Lactobacillus (lactic acid bacteria) and Bifidobacterium. These micro-organisms are found in large numbers in the normal healthy intestine.
