‘Good’ bacteria or microbiotics are essential for good health and vitality, no matter what your age. Poor diet, stressful situations, low quality food, travel tummy and antibiotics can all affect our levels of ‘good’ bacteria. ‘Bad’ or ‘unfavourable’ bacteria on the other hand, can cause intestinal imbalances that can lead to the risk of infection and illness.
