Probiotics, or beneficial lactic acid bacteria, are part of the human intestinal microflora and help maintain normal digestive processes. Lactic acid bacteria form communities of good bacteria in the body and prevent the proliferation of harmful bacteria. This, in turn, helps maintain balance in the body.
Unhealthy diet, environmental toxins, high stress levels – these are just a few factors that make the intestinal microflora less diverse and make us more susceptible to diseases. During the autumn-winter period, it is recommended to repeat probiotic courses every couple of months. This helps prevent infection with stomach flu and respiratory infections, which is especially important for a child in kindergarten, strengthens immunity, and helps vitamins and minerals be better absorbed. It is particularly important to take them during antibiotic treatment and for some time after the course. Probiotics are also recommended to be taken on trips to protect the stomach from foreign bacteria.
