What Are Probiotics?
Probiotics are live microorganisms that can be consumed through fermented foods. Natural probiotic-rich foods are superior to supplements, they hold up to 100 times more probiotics than most supplements.
More and more studies show that probiotics promote a healthy balance of gut bacteria and have been linked to a wide range of health benefits. These include improved digestive health, immune function, weight loss and more.
These are some key health benefits linked to probiotics.
Probiotics can reduce the risk and severity of diarrhea from a number of different causes, like antibiotic use. Research shows taking probiotics may help improve symptoms of mental health disorders like depression, anxiety, stress and memory. Probiotics may help protect the heart by reducing “bad” LDL cholesterol levels and lowering blood pressure, reduce the risk and severity of certain allergies, such as eczema, reduce the symptoms of bowel disorders like ulcerative colitis, IBS and enterocolitis, give your immune system a boost by inhibiting the growth of harmful gut bacteria, and protect against infections, certain probiotics may help you gain energy, mental clarity and lose weight and belly fat (however other strains, like Lactobacillus acidophilus have been linked to weight gain).
Here are my top 3 probiotic foods that I like to eat or drink in moderation and that I consider healthy for me.
