    PROBIOTICS: You see them everywhere, yet what do they do?

     Probiotics is a term I’ve come across while shopping for groceries many a time, yet I haven’t the grainiest idea what they are or what they do. Here’s what I’ve found:

     Probiotics in a food sense is a form of “healthy” bacteria/microorganism that you introduce into your body to help other elements in your body combat stuff that can be harmful to your health.

     The benefits:

     Think of them as being a watchman in the annals of your digestive system. Basically they keep the bad bacteria away that give you diarheea, stomach aches, etc.

     Not only do they keep bad bacteria away, but they open doors to minerals and vitamins that normally pass through our digestive system unabsorbed. They rid the intestines of unwanted junk and buildup so there’s more room to take in the things that our body needs to operate at optimal level.

     For those that are lactose intolerant, they make it easier for our bodies to digest and tolerate lactose.

     What are probiotic foods?

     Looks to me like most fermented foods are probiotic, and here are some examples:

    •  Kimchi
    • Miso
    • Tempeh
    • Yogurt
    • Keffir
    • Saurkraut
