Love kefir and yogurt
I've heard about it, but didn't do much follow-up research. I'm going to visit my health food store
I take a probiotic supplement but this article doesn't mention fermented foods like sauerkraut, only dairy which about 20% of population doesn't handle well. Incomplete info from my stand point.
Great article. Thanks for the information.
I was told by the pharmacist that probiotics would assist my gut while I was on a course lo strong anti biotic's for an infection and they did .
Later I found my psoriasis had died down and i was feeling much better.
Also my digestive system is behaving better, I am 76 and like many people of my age despite eating the fresh foods I had some problems .
I have no idea why they are helping me so much but I now take one each morning on an empty stomach with a big glass of water and am feeling a lot more ready to do things .
who knew we needed bugs
Take refrigerated supplements everyday and they really help. Do not take these at the same time of day as an antibiotic. Per the doctor they would work against each other
I'm allergic to dairy products. It's one of the top eight most common food allergies. The most common one! So some alternatives to dairy mentioned in an article about probiotics would be helpful. I feel that this is really incomplete, and I'd give it a C- if I were a teacher.
Great insight to little known facts.
I always take something that has probiotic in them. If I don't my stomach and gut hurts.
