Introduction

Probiotics have been receiving a lot of attention recently.  Probiotics (pro- meaning “good” and biotic- meaning “living”) were discovered by Russian scientist and Nobel Prize winner, Elie Metchnikoff of the Pasteur Institute in Paris.

We are surrounded by microorganisms. Trillions upon trillions of bacteria, fungi, viruses, parasites, nanobacteria and extremophiles live within our clothes, cars, bathrooms, beds, floors, air, and all over our bodies. Just about everything we touch has millions of microbes living on it. Bacteria also live in and around just about every food. Our bodies are also densely populated with bacteria.

There are more bacteria in our bodies than there are cells.
