Have you heard about probiotics? I bet you have! They have become very popular these days! Well, probiotics are bacteria…yes! Don’t panic! I am telling you the truth. They are live bacteria that are great for your digestive system. They are known as good bacteria, because they will help you have a healthy stomach, a good digestion and a healthy body. A lot of people think that probiotics are just found in yogurt, but they are wrong. You can find them even in your body. And of course, you can get supplements with probiotics to complement your intake.
They are two types of probiotics:
Is the most common type of probiotic, you can find it in fermented foods like yogurt.
Is very popular for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome, so if you suffer from that disease, add dairy products to your supermarket list, and start consuming them right now”.
Yoram Yasur Izz: “Probiotics will also help you with your health in a general way, they do a lot more of good things for your body, besides promoting a good digestion”. For example, probiotics will boost your immune system, and having a strong immune system will help your body to fight bacteria and viruses, you will be healthier than ever.
If you want to get more probiotics into your diet, you can include foods like: pickles, kefir, yogurt, miso, dairy foods. But my favorite way of getting probiotics is eating yogurt. If you don’t like eating yogurt alone, you can prepare a delicious smoothie with yogurt, fruits, oatmeal and chia seeds. That way you will not feel the taste of the yogurt, and you will be getting a great and nutritious snack.
They will also help you to avoid urinary infections, because the good bacteria will invade bad bacteria in the urinary tract. Remember that, these kinds of infections are very common, especially in women, that is why for women, taking a good probiotic intake is very important for health. Yeast infections are very common for woman too…and probiotics can help dealing with them.
Yoram Yasur Izz: “Recent studies indicate that probiotics can also help you treating certain skin allergies like eczema.”
And if you are suffering from diarrhea or any kind of stomach disease, you make sure to get probiotics in your diet, because they will help you recover your intestinal flora and will help you control your diarrhea faster than any other medicine.
After reading all these benefits, I am sure you will start consuming more probiotics, right? Do you agree with me?
