Is it okay to take 10 billion CFU's of probiotics daily long term? Ive had digestive issues for two years and these get rid of my issues.

In brief: Pro mean with

and bio means life.
Probiotics help the GI system digest food. Anti means against. So, if one takes excessive antibiotics (which are sometimes needed) they can kill off the good bacteria in our GI systems and we can have digestive problems. LOOK FOR A WIDE VARIETY OF STRAINS RATHER THAN HIGHER NUMBER OF FEWER STRAINS. Peace and good health.
