Q: What are probiotics?
A: Probiotics are live beneficial microorganisms that improve health by fortifying
the indigenous micro flora, or naturally existing beneficial microbes. Usually
consumed with food or supplement, probiotics can improve an organism's
resistance to disease and stimulate the immune system. By ingesting probiotics
regularly, it is possible to manipulate the composition of the intestinal micro flora
to ensure a healthy ecosystem and improve the benefits of the indigenous
microorganisms.

Q: What is the difference between probiotics and antibiotics?
A: A problem with antibiotics is the possible emergence of “super bugs,” which
are resistant to the effects of the antibiotics and would make antibiotics useless
in protecting the health of animals. Because probiotics use microorganisms that
are naturally found in the body, there are no negative effects.

compatible.
