Probiotics have been growing in popularity over the last several years, with people touting benefits like helping with depresssion and other emotional disorders, increasing immune health, reducing symptoms of certain digestive conditions, and much more. Although people have different experiences with probiotics, there is a lot of research backing these claims, but the quality of the probiotic and what strains it contains is important and often determines how effective it is.
