With over 100 trillion bacteria in our bodies we need all the good bacteria we can get. 80% of our immune system is in our gut, we need to have a healthy balance of good bacteria for it to fight off the bad.
Taking probiotics is one of the solutions for having a healthy gut, but what’s in those pills? Good bacteria like Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium are just a couple important bacterias for your intestines. These two are most commonly found in yogurt, but not all yogurt had good bacteria present.
Make sure you’re checking the labels of dairy products if you’re searching for good bacteria. Most will labeled with ‘live cultures’ while others will actually label which bacteria it contains.
Having an unbalanced amount of bacteria in your gut can lead to a long list of health concerns. Depressions, anxiety, ulcers, obesity and many others can be partially attributed to a bacteria imbalance.
Pay attention to your gut guys.
