Everyone is talking about them, Probiotics. Those live cultures that are helping to stabilize our guts one kombucha at a time. But what are they and how are they really helping us?
Probiotics are tiny microorganisms (bacteria and yeast) that decrease pathogenic gastrointestinal organisms (bad bacteria in your gut that accumulates from bad diet and sedentary lifestyle). They help strengthen your immune system, improve bowel regularity, which in turn helps reduce flatulence and bloating and it protects your proteins and fats from oxidative damage.
Where do they come from?
Here are only 4 ways of getting your daily probiotics. Any fermented food is going to get that good bacteria in your gut, be mindful of what you are eating and drinking and make sure you take in at least one type of probiotic daily! Your body will thank you.
