Probiotics is is a word we hear quite often when discussing health and wellness. While I have had an on again/off again relationship with probiotics over the last few years, generally buying a bottle, finishing it, and after not noticing any big advantages, failing to repurchase. When I was given the chance to try a supplement by Nexabiotic, I decided to give my relationship with probiotics the “on again” status and give it a try.
What are probiotics?
Probiotics are essentially strains of good bacteria that live in our gut to help absorb nutrients, keep the bad bacteria at bay, and generally keep digestion running smoothly. Things like stress (something we all experience) and age (something no one can avoid) can cause those good bacteria to die off. Have you ever noticed that when you’re particularly stressed, maybe because of work or travel, your digestion seems to be a tad uncooperative? Apparently those good bacteria don’t respond well to stress either..
