Probiotics, derived from the Greek, meaning “for life”, are live microorganisms with remarkable health benefits. Not only do these healthy, good organisms protect you from the common cold, boost your immune system, and improve your digestion, they are also ideal for anyone who has tried to lose weight but just can’t seem to make it happen.
Sometimes, even if you are eating really healthy foods, gut imbalances will lead to weight gain, poor assimilation of nutrients, and excess inflammation. It’s essential to bring your body back in balance with nourishing foods and to educate yourself about probiotics.
Good bacteria in your body will give you some wonderful benefits including:
- Healthier digestion
- Stronger immune system
- Glowing skin
- Amazing sleep
- Less bloat
- Reduced food and seasonal allergies
- Improved memory and brain function
- More energy
- Better bowel movements
- Better food assimilation
Probiotic rich foods include:
- Sauerkraut (I have a tablespoon with lunch and dinner)
- Live cultured or handmade yogurt
I have a probiotic every morning when I wake up (make sure you take a very high quality probiotic as many probiotics are broken down by stomach acid and are never absorbed) and a tablespoon of sauerkraut with every main meal. Try probiotics today and see the results yourself!
