Probiotic Love

Probiotics and Me: A Love Story

Probiotics and I go back, aka about 3 years. I WISH we went way back, but unfortunately it took quite a number of trials and time to discover probiotics.

If your guys took the time to read my story, I want to first say thank you, and if you didn’t then go take a peak! Okay, so now that everyone has read my story, you will know that shortly after I was married I found out I had candida. Candida is the overgrowth of yeast in your gut, which resulted in the tearing of my stomach lining and the release of toxins into my body that made me sick.

Sounds super fun, I know…

Though it wasn’t the most pleasant experience, I am thankful for it because I was able to learn so much about my body and the power of holistic health. With every supplements I tried my all-time favorite product I learned about was probiotics.

Probiotics are the good type of bacteria that can help to improve gut health. They also help maintain good digestion and improve your body’s ability to absorb nutrients from your food! Probiotics boost your immune system and are especially helpful after taking an anti-biotic.

If you are wondering about how to add probiotics into your life you can begin with taking capsules daily. This method is extremely effective, but a little boring. If you want to step up your game, then take the capsules, but aim to add probiotic rich food into your diet! Some of my favorite probiotic rich foods are,

·         Sauerkraut

·         Kimchi

·         Pickles

·         Miso

·         Apple Cider Vinegar

·         Yogurt

·         Kiefer

·         Kombucha

This week, do your body a favor and see what kind of probiotics you can work into your diet. Trust me, your tummy will thank you!

Pssst*…When you are buying these products, make sure to read the labels! You want simple ingredients with as little sugar as possible. The benefits of these products can decrease because of additives, so choose wisely!
