Probiotics are living microorganisms that are naturally produced in our digestive system. They colonize mainly the colon and benefit from the health of the individual by providing digestive help and stimulating the immune response. A low level of beneficial bacteria and microorganisms in the colon increases the chance of having pathogen bacteria. Probiotics can be beneficial to reduce the seriousness and occurrence of gastroenteritis, diarrhea, and kidney stones, specially in children. It can also benefit their health by supporting the immune system, but it should not be regarded as a panacea or as an alternative to a healthy lifestyle or diet. (1)
