Gastrointestinal health is the one that is most benefited by probiotics as they promote a healthy gut apart from boosting intestinal functions. All these benefits eventually lead to a healthy immune system.

Fermented dairy products such as yogurt, cheese and kefir are great sources of probiotic bacteria. Other sources include miso, fermented soybeans, granola bars and dried cereals.
