If you feel tired and run down, if you get frequent colds, or if you have digestive issues, you may want to check your gut. An imbalance of gut bacteria can lead to digestive issues and make you more prone to infections. In fact, 80 percent of your immune system is located in your digestive tract.

So, how do you balance gut bacteria? Taking a probiotic supplement is a great first step. “Probiotics increase your ‘good’ bacteria, which helps to both relieve and prevent digestive and immune system issues,” says Melissa Josselson, ND, a naturopathic doctor.
