In brief: Intestinal health

Probiotics help maintain the normal bacterial balance of your intestines.
This approach is going to be the next "big" thing in medicine (in my opinion). If you don't have any issues, you probably don't need them, but they won't hurt. If you have irritable bowels, diarrhea, or cramping, trying a medicine like florastor or align can't hurt!
