Probiotics and their health benefits

Why should I take Probiotics?

Probiotics are the beneficial, friendly bacteria that you will find throughout the digestive tract. Bad eating habits, drinking chlorinated water, stress and disease and the use of antibiotics in food industry as well as in medical treatments can cause problems in the gastrointestinal tract by killing friendly bacteria and allowing bad bacteria to multiply.

New research is proving how important the supplementation of Probiotics can be for many different degenerative diseases.

Probiotics are “good” bacteria that help keep your digestive system healthy by controlling growth of harmful bacteria.

Prebiotics are carbohydrates that cannot be digested by the human body. They are food for Probiotics. The primary benefit of both appears to be helping you maintain a healthy digestive system.

What foods are good sources of Probiotics?

One of the best sources of Probiotics is yogurt. It has good bacteria like lactobacillus or bifid bacteria. Look for “live or active cultures” on the label to be sure your favorite brand of yogurt is a rich source of healthy bacteria. Another good food sources are sauerkraut, miso soup, fermented, soft cheeses (like Gouda), and sourdough bread. The common feature of all these foods is fermentation, a process that produces Probiotics.

What foods are good sources of prebiotics?

To help maintain healthy level of prebiotics, you can feed them with the foods you eat. Foods rich in prebiotics include asparagus, artichokes, bananas, oatmeal, and legumes.

What foods, if any, have both prebiotics and Probiotics in them?

The types of foods that contain Probiotics and prebiotics are very different. Therefore, there is no food that contains both. However, you can find supplements that contain Probiotics and prebiotics. That`s why I recommend to supplement with Udo`s Choice.
