The bacteria line the gut wall and help to stop toxins and harmful substances passing through the gut into the body – so ideally, we need a lot more good than bad. Taking friendly bacteria in a supplement can help to re-balance the levels of bacteria in the gut. ProVen Probiotics Adult Acidophilus and Bifidus 25 Billion, contains Lab4, the most comprehensively studied group of friendly bacteria in the UK.
