Probiotics are healthy bacteria that live in your gut. They help with food digestion as well as fend off invading bacteria that could make you ill. If the probiotics in your digestive system become depleted then you may experience IBS symptoms. Taking a probiotic supplement may help restore the healthy probiotics back to your gut & perhaps improve or cure your symptoms.

Probiotics can be helpful for all IBS symptoms like diarrhea or constipation. Those with pain predominant IBS may even see benefit from probiotics regulating their digestive tract.
