While probiotics do also help us breakdown and digest food, they are not the same as enzymes. They are actually living bacteria rather than chemical compounds. Probiotics also produce vitamins, help improve our resistance to infections and have the amazing ability to lower cholesterol levels, help maintain healthy weight or lose weight when needed, relieve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and thrush and help us recover from diarrhea and other illnesses.
