By Christina Anthis



MegaFood | January 2020

Have your friends been talking about getting their daily probiotics, but you’re still not sure what this “good bacteria” really is? That’s ok! Today’s the day to learn!

What are probiotics?

While it might seem unsettling, our bodies host a plethora of different types of bacteria; some good and some bad. The good bacteria in our bodies, called probiotics, help to keep our gut healthy by balancing out the bad bacteria and aiding digestion.* Keeping a healthy biome in your belly can give your body the boost it needs to help support digestive balance and immune health.*

Taking probiotic supplements is the most efficient way to keep this balance in check, but you can also find probiotics in many fermented food and beverage sources such as yogurt, fermented veggies, kefir, kombucha, sauerkraut, miso, kimchi, and more!

There are MANY studies being done in the area of probiotics and gut health right now, which is exciting! The strongest scientific evidence to date finds that probiotics provide the following benefits:

  • supports the immune system*
  • promotes urinary health*
  • supports intestinal and digestive health*
