Are you sore most of the time?
If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably acquired a few aches and pains over the years to complain about.
At least that was the case until I discovered the many health benefits of probiotics.
Now, to be clear, this doesn’t involve some complicated diet regime or elaborate grocery list.
It’s quite the opposite actually and can be as simple as eating yogurt.
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you come across the word “bacteria”?
If you’re like the majority of people, you most likely associate this term with sickness or disease; however, not all bacteria is created equal.
Like many things, there are good and bad versions of both and that’s exactly what probiotics consist of – GOOD BACTERIA.
Consuming probiotics promotes good gut health by maintaining the bacteria in your body.
Yes, believe it or not, your body naturally contains bacteria that is beneficial to your health, which is exactly what makes probiotics so appealing in the first place!
So what contains this good bacteria?
As I previously said, yogurt is one option and is probably the most common way for people to intake probiotics.
Maybe your taste buds don’t fancy yogurt though. If so, no worries. There are plenty of other alternatives for adding probiotics to your diet.
Kimchi, which is a Korean cuisine made up of fermented vegetables, is one example of a healthy way to take in this bacteria.
And if you prefer to drink these nutrients instead, then Kombucha is another option as well.
The list goes on and on, but there are plenty of routes to choose in order to receive your dose of probiotics.
So what are you waiting for?
Not only do probiotics battle chronic inflammation, but they can prevent a variety of health issues, such as arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease, as well.
A typical American diet is high in sugars and refined carbohydrates, which cause inflammation and block the formation of the healthy bacteria that probiotics supply.
The thing is, if your immune system is working to battle inflammation instead of focusing on other infections then you’re more prone to diseases.
There’s really no reason not to include probiotics into your diet. It’s easy!
And the best part is that there are plenty of options to choose from so you can make it enjoyable.
Start implementing good bacteria into your diet and take advantage of the health benefits it has to offer.
