The expert explained that probiotics are different from each other.
- There are probiotics - biologically active additives - dietary supplements, and there are probiotics - drugs, the activity of which has been confirmed by many years of clinical trials.

These probiotics do not contain individual bacterial cells, but whole microcolonies of bifidobacteria, fixed on a special carrier - particles of activated carbon. They, which is important, restore the microflora balance as quickly as possible,”the doctor noted.
Experts advise to choose sorbed probiotics, which use a species of bifidobacterium bifidum, isolated from the human body. Such probiotics are a drug. They increase the efficiency of the body's immune system.
