The purported benefits of Probiotic 10 include probiotic organisms that help digest food, maintain healthy intestinal flora, absorb nutrients and contribute to proper immune system performance, states Nature's Bounty, the product's manufacturer. Each serving of the product contains 20 billion live probiotic cultures of 10 separate naturally occurring probiotic organisms.
Probiotics are live yeasts and bacteria that benefit the human body, especially the digestive system. They are good bacteria that naturally occur in the body and in foods including chocolate and yogurt, and they aid intestinal health, explains WebMD. Most strains of probiotics are lactobacillus, which can ease diarrhea and lactose intolerance, or bifidobacterium, which can ease conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome. Some strains can ease eczema, prevent colds and allergies, and promote oral, vaginal and urinary health. Patients should consult their doctors to determine which probiotics may help them.
