Probiotic Yogurts-Hype or Hope?

May 15, 2017

Probiotic foods yogurts are a big seller and yes, they do have the benefit of adding good bacteria into your stomach and intestines that aids in food digestion, your immune system and help move everything along smoothly. However there is a better way to get those benefits and could be healthier too.  Most yogurts on the market kill the good bacteria in the manufacturing process (heat from pasteurization) and contain a lot of added sugars.  While those who advertise theirs contain probiotics only contain them after artificially placing them back in in many cases.  While that's OK and effective, according to Dr. Michael Mosley, you can get good bacteria into your gut by eating fermented cabbage, such as sauerkraut and kimchi, which contains good bacteria that is created naturally. Apple cider vinegar is also a good source of good bacteria too. If sauerkraut or apple cider vinegar isn't your bag, consider making your own yogurt [CLICK HERE FOR A RECIPE].
