Does anyone supplement their diet with probiotics? Thoughts?
The fanatic health/diet/foodie people I know say that you need to make your own sauerkraut, kimchi, etc because commercial products will have been processed to kill a lot of the probiotics in order to extend shelf life and make supply logistics easier. They also recommend raw dairy as a probiotic. And to stay away from foods with lots of preservatives because preservatives kill microorganisms, on purpose in your food but consequently in your gut as well.
Yes I use them daily, in different forms. Probiotics are the best thing you can do for your body. 70% of your immune system is in the gut so if it is balanced (good/bad bacteria) your health will benefit. Also there are connections to be made with brain, heart and gut. They all contain neurotransmitters, so it all ties in. Prebiotics are also a helpful addition. They actually feed the good bacteria which in turn enables them to multiply.
