Probiotics are living microorganisms that live in the human digestive system, sometimes referred to as the “good” bacteria because they are important in keeping the “bad” bacteria or “illness causing” bacteria under control. Studies like the one performed by Stanford University School of Medicine indicate that supplementing weight loss surgical patients with probiotics may be beneficial for maximizing weight loss. Probiotics, particularly lactobacillus acidophilus, may help lactose digestion in lactose-intolerant individuals, a common problem for post bariatric patients.
