What Are Probiotics?
Direct-fed microbials (probiotics) produce antibiotic-like substances that help prevent certain bacterial infections, help produce enzymes that aid in digestion, and help lower the pH of the gastrointestinal tract.
Gram Positive: Bacteria that are considered good bacteria and often destroy bad bacteria.
Gram Negative: Bacteria that live off of blood, tissue and bone, and give off toxic substances.
Lactobacillus: Organisms that are the most popular gram positive bacteria. There are other compounds, which are also helpful such as bacillus subtilis, lactis, bulgaricus, enterococcus, etc.
