Lactobacillus. Bifidus. Gut Flora... You may not know what these words mean, but if you are in the habit of taking a probiotic pill, these are more than likely common probiotic strains found in them. What exactly do probiotics do? Even if you don't know exactly how they work, I bet you've heard this common phrase before, "If you want your gut and immune system to be healthy, take probiotics".
