Why Probiotics are Beneficial
Clinical research has found that your digestive tract contains more than 100 trillion bacteria (that is 10 times the number of cells in your entire body) and collectively makes up an inner ecosystem known as our gut flora. The health of that ecosystem, it turns out, can be very important to your overall health.
Gut flora are used to aid in the digestion of food and absorb nutrients; many vitamins and minerals are released from the food you eat by bacteria in our digestive tract. The gut flora act as part of our immune system and they help promote healthy intestinal activity, good digestion, and colon regularity.
If you want to maintain a healthy bacterial ecosystem, the best approach is to avoid refined grains, sugar, processed foods, chlorinated water, and certain medications.
You can also add good bacteria by getting them in your diet. Make sure to include fermented foods as a part of your daily routine. This means not only a good yogurt, but also pickles, sauerkraut, kefir, buttermilk, and tempeh. Make sure you choose these foods with live cultures; pasteurization can destroy the healthy bacteria.
In addition to cultured foods, a probiotic supplement can also help support healthy digestive and immune function.
