What do you know about ... probiotics?


The human body is host to around 1014 bacteria, contributing to at least a kilo of total body weight. Most of these (about 80%) live in the intestines and are collectively known as the gut flora. They reside on the gut's mucous membrane, some attached to the gut wall. The majority (80%) of these bacteria are harmless, if not beneficial, and include more than 500 different species.
