What are probiotics? Probiotic supplementation involves supplying large quantities of beneficial bacteria that normally live in the small intestine of warm blooded animals. These beneficial bacteria "crowd-out" disease causing organisms by taking over nutrients and attachment sites. They also make the intestine less favorable for harmful bacteria and yeast by producing lactic and acetic acids.
Beneficial bacteria also assist in nitrogen retention and weight gain in babies and in the production of vitamin B.
