Probiotics have recently received considerable attention by the healthcare professionals and the public. Probiotics are live microorganisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host.
From this definition, it becomes clear that probiotics can be a component of food, dietary supplement and drug, administered at any age for obtaining any type of health benefit.
Bacillus coagulans is an excellent example of a probiotic. Discover why LactoSpore® is the Probiotic of Choice.
