Frequently Asked Questions:

1. What are probiotics?

Probiotics are the "good" organisms and bacteria that live in the intestinal tract which digest food and mantain the proper pH or acid/base balance of the digestive system. They are natually occuring bacteria which are being studied for their properties and abilit

Antibiotics were developed in the late 1930's and early 1940's. The drugs we have today are the decendents of the medications which saved millions of lives by fighting infections, diseases and illnesses. Antibiotics work by killing the bacteria which makes a person or animal ill--antibiotics decreases the population of "bad" bacteria so that we don't continue to be sick.

2. Why do we need probiotics and just what are they?

Scientits have had to develop more and different kinds of antibiotics to kill the bacteria which makes us sick because the bacteria has developed, in some cases, a resistence to the antibiotics we use.

Probiotics are the "good" bacteria that are natually found in the digestive systems of humans, dogs, dairy cows, cattle, pigs, and horses. Colonies of the good bacteria lives in the digestive systems and helps to breakdown food for digestion.
