- What are probiotics?
The word "probiotic" literally means "for life." Probiotics are active bacteria that provide health benefits beyond their basic nutritional value when consumed in sufficient quantities.
Scientific studies suggest probiotics may play a vital role in human health. Here are some of their benefits:
Assist in metabolizing vitamins
Boost the immune system
- Is there a link between obesity and probiotics?
Linking obesity with yogurt consumption is misleading. In addition, it contradicts Canada’s Food Guide, which recommends consuming two dairy products per day, and up to four servings for children, adolescents and the elderly. Obesity involves a number of factors and is very often linked to an unbalanced diet and a lack of physical activity.
