What are probiotics? Are probiotics good for you?

Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for you, especially for a healthy digestive system. Your body is full of bacteria, both good and bad. Probiotics are often called "good" or "helpful" bacteria because they help keep your gut healthy.
