5 AMAZING Ways to Get Your Probiotics

If there's one health trend you need to be informed about, it's the implementation of probiotics in your diet. Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that help the digestive system, that's right- GOOD bacteria! These good bacteria keep your gut healthy and functioning at optimal levels. More specifically, probiotics help food move through the gut and digestive system. Probiotics have also been linked to stronger immune system, healthier skin and weight loss. You've probably heard of probiotics being found in yogurt or a pill form, but they actually come in several forms. 

1. Yogurt: One of the most accessible forms of probiotics is live-cultured yogurt. However, pay close attention to how the yogurt is made and the sugar/ high fructose corn syrup content. 

2. Kombucha: This fizzy, sweet probiotic drink is a refreshing way to incorporate probiotics into your diet. The black tea is fermented with SCOBY, which is a live bacteria and yeast colony. Along with digestive benefits, Kombucha boosts energy and detoxes the liver. 

3. Sauerkraut and Kimchi: These flavorful, cultured vegetables are an excellent way to build probiotics into your cooking. Sauerkraut is made from fermented cabbage and is high in organic acids. Kimchi is widely used in Korean dishes and can also add some spice to your cooking!

4. Kefir: Kefir is very similar to yogurt because it is a fermented dairy product that is combined with fermented kefir grains. Because it's fermented with more bacteria and yeast, it's actually higher in probiotic content than yogurt. 

5. Miso Soup: Miso Soup is made from fermented soybean paste. Miso is a traditionally Japanese dish that is known for its macrobiotic and digestive regulating properties.
