Every time I think about probiotics, the concept is a little hard to wrap my head around: Bacteria that are actually beneficial? This obviously seems counterintuitive, but by definition, bacteria are simply a group of single-celled organisms. Probiotics—the beneficial bacteria—are typically found in cultured milk products such as yogurt.
Researchers have already found myriad ways to utilize probiotics, but they are constantly looking for new diseases and disorders that respond to treatment. Probiotics have been used in conjunction with antibiotics as a way to reduce the adverse side effects. In clinical studies, probiotics have also been used effectively to curtail eczema, thwart the creation of stomach ulcers and reduce the risk of colon cancer. There has also been research into their ability to combat diarrhea, bacterial infections, and a host of other diseases and disorders.
