If you have digestive problems, we bet that your doctor has advised you to increase your intake of dairy products, especially curds. What he is referring to is an increase in probiotic foods in your diet. Probiotic comes from the Greek language and simply means 'pro life'. Probiotic food is excellent for ailments like constipation, diarrhea, and even the common cold, as it enhances the growth of friendly bacteria when you take in antibiotics.
