What are Probiotics and the benefits of taking them?


Our body normally has what we would call good or helpful bacteria and bad or harmful bacteria. Maintaining the correct balance between these bacteria is necessary for optimal health. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Probiotics are live "good" microorganisms that may be able to help prevent and treat some illnesses, while promoting a healthy digestive tract and immune system! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


Food and supplements that contain probiotics help the "good" bacteria that are already present in your gut. The most common bacteria belong to groups called Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Probiotics can help keep you healthy by:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

- Decreasing the number of "bad" bacteria in your gut that can cause infections or inflammation (swelling).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

- Stabilizing the digestive tract’s barriers against “bad” bacteria, or producing substances that hinder their growth.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

- Replacing the body's "good" bacteria that have been lost, for example, when you take antibiotics.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

- Restoring the body's "good" versus "bad" bacterial balance, which then helps to keep your body functioning properly.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

You can find them in foods like: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

- Some juices ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

- Soy drinks⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

- Fermented and unfermented milk⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

- Soft cheeses ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

- Tempeh ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

- Kefir⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

- Kimchi ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

- Sauerkraut⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

- Yogurt ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
