What Are Probiotics?

Feb 26, 2022

One of the great things about eating yogurt is that it is full of probiotics. So what are probiotics and what makes them so great for us?

Probiotics are tiny little bacteria that fill your gut and help you digest your food. Your intestines are naturally full of these good bacteria, and by eating probiotic-rich foods, we help to repopulate the gut. Therefore we can absorb the nutrients from our foods better.

Here are some probiotic-rich foods. How many have you tried?

  • YOGURT
  • KEFIR
  • KOMBUCHA
  • SAUERKRAUT
  • PICKLES
  • MISO
  • TEMPEH
  • KIMCHI
  • SOURDOUGH BREAD
