not a dumb question....


A probiotic is an organism which contributes to the health and balance of the intestinal tract. A probiotic is also referred to as the "friendly", "beneficial", or "good" bacteria which when ingested acts to maintain a healthy intestinal tract and help fight illness and disease.

You can get probiotics through yogurt or by taking supplements. They are extremely good for you - especially if you have IBS, IBD or yeast overgrowth.

It can also be helpful when taking antibiotics.
