Why bother with probiotics? As a savvy consumer reading health information, you want to know if these things matter in order for you to be healthy, or if you are being scammed by marketers. Believe me, they really are powerful (as the website name suggests!), and without them, you could not live for very long!
To have them work for you to be healthy, or even be healthier, you have to know a little bit about what you are doing.
Probiotics are officially defined as, “Live organisms that, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host” by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations. This seems like a simple definition; just pop a pill with some good bugs in it and you will see benefits.
But wait! There is a lot more than meets the eye in that definition. This site will help you understand the answers to questions of who, what, when, where, why and how about taking these beneficial live organisms so you can make decisions for better health. You will appreciate that they fit into the bigger picture of your microbiome, the collection of microbes on you.
Much information has been learned about the microbiome and its influence on health from The Human Microbiome Project and other research projects around the globe. Many new research findings are published daily making the study of the microbiome fascinating and ever-changing. (That's why I love it!) The microbiome affects us, and things we do affect it. Even the roles of beneficial, neutral, opportunistic and pathogenic microbes are intertwined so that neither operates in a vacuum within or on us.
While nearly every website publishes articles about these beneficial microbes, PowerOfProbiotics.com is unique in that the content is extensively researched and delivered in the context of how the microbiome and probiotics impact each other, gut health and overall health, and how our diets and lifestyles affect all of them. You will see how and why they can impact so many health conditions, and learn things you can do and should stop doing.

Some competitors of SBI (Site Build It) are posting fake negative reviews of SBI. If you are considering creating your own website business, or if you have a brick-and-mortar business but want an online presence, I highly recommend SBI!
