Journey with Probiotics

“The best way to activate genius within the immune system is by ingesting certain super herbs, taking probiotics and cultured foods, minimizing toxic food exposure by eating pure organic raw living foods, and making appropriate healthy lifestyle improvement.” – David Wolfe

Probiotics are a staple on pharmacy shelves these days. Having a healthy gut has proven to be the next frontier for improving general health Let’s delve deeper into what evidence it has to say about their effectiveness.

What are Probiotics?

We have millions of bacteria, some good and bad that are situated in our colon. The combination of all these microorganisms is often referred as our microbiome. Because they have so many beneficial health effects, probiotics are commonly referred to as “the good bacteria”

Since most of our digestion happens in our small intestine much of what reaches probiotics are things like fibre and other compounds that we as humans are unable to digest. Bacteria have different equipment than we do, however, and can break down much of what we can't, making them an integral part of obtaining nutrients from the food we eat that we would have missed otherwise.

What are the benefits of Probiotics?

Probiotic bacteria are involved in a wide range of functions from:

  • Aiding in digestion and absorption
  • Boost the immune system and speed of illness recovery
  • Protect against colds and flu
  • Reduce the severity of certain allergies and eczema
  • Help with Heart and Skin Health

Sources of Probiotics?

Probiotics can be consumed through fermented food, such as yogurt, kefir, aged cheese like parmesan and cheddar, kimchi, sauerkraut, miso, and non-dairy yogurts that indicate they are cultured.

While there are no recommended daily amounts for probiotics, if these aren’t foods that you typically eat, may be a good idea to consider dietary supplements. Choosing the right Probiotics can be tough, as there are many variations to choose from. BePure offer probiotics needs through supplementation to aid your journey.
