There are over 100,000 billion viable bacteria in your digestive system made up of some 400 different kinds. Maintaining a proper balance between "friendly" bacteria and bad bacteria is important to good health. With the explosive use of antibiotics today, many people may experience unexpected side effects as the good bacteria are destroyed along with disease causing bacteria. Along with decreased digestive function, you may also experience gas, bloating, toxicity, or bad breath. This also leaves the system vulnerable to an overgrowth of candida.
