Probiotics are live bacteria that keep the growth of harmful bacteria in check and assist in restoring the levels of normal friendly bacteria in the gut. If the balance between good and bad bacteria is out of balance, causing harmful bacteria to overgrow, diarrhea and other digestive problems can occur. This is particularly likely during and after antibiotic use as the healthy flora may be disrupted during the course of antibiotics. Probiotics are also important for maintaining healthy gastrointestinal function and general wellbeing. They are available in foods such as yogurt, fermented and unfermented milk, miso, and some juices and soy beverages as well as in the form of dietary supplements (capsules and tablets). While there is no strong evidence to suggest that the use of probiotics may help assist people with bloating and IBS, some individuals do find that it helps.
