  • It repopulates your digestive track with good healthy bacteria that the body needs and antibiotics and other things kill off.

  • It restores beneficial flora (good bacteria that your body needs) and ups your immune system by doing so.

  • It replaces bad bacteria with good bacteria.. my mom just recently took some and got this huge rash that's lasted for over a month and has been itching constantly.. she was on an antibiotic at the time she took the pro-biotic and mixing it could have made the rash occur. She went to the dermatologist a few days ago and her results wont be in until mid- next week.
