Probiotics is a must for sufferers of acid reflux to repair and restore the gut flora. Live microorganisms or good bacterial strains help the stomach digest better, protect it against harmful pathogens and guard the body against foreign invaders that cause disease. A healthy stomach is the first step to optimal health. Research has shown that probiotics help to treat gastrointestinal viral infections like rotavirus, infectious diarrhea, atopic diseases like eczema, allergic rhinitis and asthma, and inflammatory bowel syndrome. They also aid in the prevention of diarrhea, urinary tract infections, irritable bowel syndrome, dermatitis (eczema), and even bladder cancer.
