Probiotics and prebiotics

Online course

Many of us associate probiotics mainly with antibiotics as something that is supposed to help rebuild the body's bacterial flora after being depleted by antibiotics - and rightly so. The antibiotic kills bacteria that are harmful to us, but it has no "target" or "radar" and with them, it also eliminates some of the microorganisms that we need for proper functioning, i.e. probiotics. To support the smooth functioning of the body, we often take them from the outside - in appropriate doses, which is very beneficial for health. One of the pro-health effects of probiotics is antitumor activity - their use may reduce the incidence of cancer and improve progress in its treatment.
