If you’re thinking “What even is a probiotic?”, the answer is already inside of you (LITERALLY)! Probiotics keep your gut healthy and promote a healthy digestive system. Adding more of these to your body allows for food to be digested properly and helps destress your digestive system.
The first type of probiotic I ever tried was greek yogurt! Whenever I had a stomach ache or felt heavy after eating a large meal I had a little greek yogurt, which did the trick when I was younger.
The next type of probiotic I discovered was Kefir! Kefir is a yogurt type drink that contains live probiotics and comes in a variety of yummy flavors! I really enjoy this type of probiotic to throw into a smoothie!
Kombucha is another type of probiotic that has become popular! Whole Foods carries a variety of flavors and even has some chia seed kombucha drinks. I love kombucha and find it super refreshing, it has an apple cider vinegar taste that’s bitter and sweet at the same time.
Lately, I’ve been taking a probiotic pill every morning from Whole Foods because of my busy schedule! Make sure the product is refrigerated or freeze dried when you buy these types of probiotic pills. Live probiotics need cold environments to survive in order for them to work their magic!
The reason I take a probiotic everyday is due to the fact that they support digestive health and therefore immune system! I don’t feel as sluggish as a consequence of the energy it takes to digest my food, since the probiotics are helping maintain my digestion’s efficiency.
