Probiotics, we all need more of these beneficial microorganisms that boost our gut health (and our immunity and digestion). Maybe you get some with yogurt or a dietary supplement, but consider adding some traditional foods to the mix that contain these organisms naturally.
Here’s a handful to consider with two caveats: If the food is pasteurized the manufacturer must add probiotics afterward and don’t boil the foods since this will kill the good bacteria.
- Kombucha (A cold tea beverage)
- Kim chi (a spicy Korean fermented cabbage)
