Probiotics are living microorganisms found in foods, such as yogurt, sauerkraut and pickles, or supplements that can be beneficial to balance your gut. They also help with many other systems in your body, including your defense system, and can also help with digestive issues as well. So, should you take probiotics? Read on to find out.

1. Increase Gut Health

Your gut contains a delicate balance of microorganisms that are part of the digestive tract. Your gut flora is in charge of producing vitamin K and vitamin B and is overlooked, having as much metabolic activity as an organ. One of the benefits of taking probiotics is that they help your gut health by balancing the proper bacteria levels in your gut. These issues may arise from poor diet, illness, or antibiotics.

2. Increase Defense System

Probiotics may increase the production of natural antibodies and may also inhibit the production of harmful bacteria. Some probiotics have been shown to promote the production of antibodies as well as defense cells called natural killer cells.

3. Possible Weight Management

Another one of the benefits of taking probiotics is that some may prevent the absorption of fat through the intestines, and encourage it to be released in waste. Probiotics may also help you feel fuller longer, burn more calories, and store less fat due to the increase in the hormone GLP-1. This hormone induces satiety, which leads to reduced weight gain, and is also responsible for gut motility.
