Today we wanted to talk about probiotics. Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health, especially your digestive system. We usually think of bacteria as something that causes diseases. But your body is full of bacteria, both good and bad. Probiotics are often called “good” or “helpful” bacteria because they help keep your gut healthy. The best type of probiotics are those that are naturally occurring in foods that are fermented – you will find a useful summary below.
Kombucha and Water Kefir are delicious drinks that can help your gut stay healthy, you can find them on our online shop; miso is a great alternative to salt whilst cooking; pickles, sauerkraut, and kimchi are great sides for your everyday meals. Make sure you rotate their use so that you maintain a strong gut flora and therefore immune system.
