The Promise of Probiotics for Arthritis.



It’s almost impossible to turn on the television or read a magazine without seeing ads for products with probiotics – so-called “good bacteria,” yeast or other living microorganisms in foods or supplements that are touted to have health benefits, including for arthritis. 

And demand for these products is only growing; the global market for probiotics is expected to top $28 billion in 2015, according to industry reports.

Foods and supplements with these “good bacteria” may prove to help arthritis and overall health.
