There are many benefits to adding probiotics to your diet. Probiotics, which are beneficial bacteria, provide all sorts of powerful benefits for your body and brain. They may:
-improve digestive health
-promote heart health
From physical to mental health, it all starts in your gut! The gut, also called the body’s second brain, benefits from good bacteria to help fight off infection as well as balance the bad bacteria in our body, which leads to a variety of benefits. More over, you don’t need to remember to take a supplement everyday because probiotics are present in many foods we can add to our diet. Here are a list of probiotic dense foods that are easily added to anyone's diet.
1. Yogurt-milk that is fermented by proteins such as lactic acid and bacteria. Our favorite is the vanilla flavor by the brand The Coconut Cult!
2. Kimchi/ sauerkraut- Sauerkraut and kimchi is cabbage that has been fermented by bacteria. It is one of the oldest traditional foods and is popular in many countries,
especially in Eastern Europe and Korea. Try WildBrines' many flavors of both kimchi and sauerkraut.
3. Kefir- Fermented probiotic milk drink, our fave is Green Valley Creamery’s Lactose Free Kefir
4. Tempeh- Fermented soybean product used in many parts of the world as a meat replacement. We love the brand Lightlife for our tempeh fix.
5. Miso- a Japanese seasoning traditionally made by fermenting soybeans with salt and a type of fungus called Koji. A great addition to soups, eggs and salad dressings for a boost in daily probiotics.
6. Kombucha- Fermented black or green tea drink. Funky and refreshing add to cocktails in replacement of a spirit and have a guilt free summer drink! For a yummy bubbly treat we reach for GT’s guava goddess flavor every time.
