Probiotics: Which Probiotic-Rich Foods Should You Include in Your Diet?

Probiotic foods to add to your diet. Probiotics
are beneficial forms of gut bacteria that help stimulate the natural digestive juices
and enzymes that keep our digestive tract functioning properly. In addition to taking
a probiotic supplement, you can also support your probiotic intake through eating foods
that are a host to these live bacteria. We all know of the great health benefits of probiotics,
however, not all of us know how to take advantage of these health benefits. Now we’ll talk about
the best probiotic foods for you to add to your diet. I would also recommend buying the
organic version of these probiotic foods. Number one, yogurt is one of the best probiotic
foods. It’s live cultured yogurt, especially if it’s handmade. Look for brands made from
raw goats milk that have been infused with extra forms of probiotics like lactobacillus
or acidophilus. Raw goats milk or cows milk and cheese, are particularly high in probiotics
like thermophiles, bifidus, bulgaricus, and also acidophilus. Be sure the read the ingredient
list, as not all yogurt is made equally. Many of the popular store brands are filled with
high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, and artificial flavors, and they are way to
close to being a nutritional equivalent of sugary, fatty ice cream. Number two, kefir.
Similar to yogurt, this fermented dairy product is a unique combination of goat’s milk and
fermented kefir grains. It’s high in lactobacilli and bifidus bacteria. Kefir is also rich in
anti-oxidants. Look for a good, organic version at your local health food shop or local farm.
Next food is sauerkraut. Sauerkraut is made from fermented cabbage and sometimes other
vegetables. Sauerkraut is not only extremely rich in healthy, live cultures, but might
also help with reducing allergy symptoms. Sauerkraut is also rich in vitamins B, A,
E, and vitamin C. Microalgae. This refers to super food ocean based plants such as spirulina,
corella, and blue-green algae. These probiotic foods have been shown to increase the amount
of both lactobacillus and bifidobacteria in the digestive tract. Miso soup. Miso is one
of the traditional Japanese foods, and is commonly used in macrobiotic cooking as a
digestive regulator. It’s made from fermented rye, beans, rice, or barley. Adding a tablespoon
of miso to some hot water makes an excellent, quick probiotic rich soup, full of lactobacilli
and bifidus bacteria. Beyond its important live cultures, Miso is extremely nutrient
dense and believed to help neutralize the effects of environmental pollution. It also
alkalizes the body and stops the effects of carcinogens in the system. The next food is
pickles. Believe it or not, the common green pickle is an excellent source of probiotics.
Try making your own homemade pickles in the sun using organic ingredients. Kim Chi. Kim
chi is an Asian form of pickled sauerkraut. Kim Chi is an extremely spicy and sour fermented
cabbage, typically served alongside meals in Korea. Besides beneficial bacteria, Kim
Chi is also a great source of Beta Carotene, calcium, iron, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin
B1 and vitamin B2. Kim Chi is one of the best probiotic foods you can add to your diet,
assuming you can handle the spice. Next, kombucha tea. This is a form of fermented tea that
contains a high amount of healthy gut bacteria. This probiotic drink has been used for centuries,
and is believed to help increase your energy, enhance your well-being, and maybe even help
you lose weight. Other good sources of probiotics are natural probiotics you could take in a
bottle such as Latero-Flora, which contains the pro biotic bacillus laterosporus. For

  3. Fermented foods are full of sugars, vinegar and yeast, make it alcohol and that can feed candida overgrowth so if you are suffering disease do not have fermented foods or drinks. if you are healthy then go for it…. candida overgrowth causes all disease and you dont want to feed it more..
