If you are taking antibiotics, traveling or simply want to promote your health, taking CULTURELLE daily will maintain the health-promoting ""good"" bacteria in your intestinal tract. These friendly bacteria, called ""flora,"" form a protective barrier to keep ""bad"" bacteria out, maintaining a healthy intestinal tract. This is important because the intestines are the largest immune organ in the body and promoting their health strengthens your body's overall natural defenses.
