what is the difference to your health between pro- and pre-biotics? Is one better than the other?
Great, thanks for sharing!
Don't forget buttermilk! I sweeten it and use it as a salad dressing.
Is there any specific time to take these probiotics?
A great one! Thank you!
Can be a great help for those who need them.
I thought that probiotics are medicines but actually, they are not. Our digestive system is an idol place for bacteria, so we need to maintain a balance between healthy and bad bacteria. Probiotics are healthy bacteria which help in better digestion. After consuming Yakult for a long time I can see several positive changes in my health, my digestion become strong, I have better bowel moment and also got better immunity. I take it as a regular part of my daily diet.
Very informative! Thank you!
Take a probiotic daily.
What the heck??? Probiotics are found in a lot more than just dairy products - do you work for the national dairy association or something?
How about sourdough bread, sauerkraut, miso paste, kimchi...
Anything fermented will have probiotics.
I've been taking probiotics for years now and have really noticed the difference. I feel much healthier now that I did several years ago. I've been reading sits like http://bestprobiotics.org and a few more to increase my knowledge in this good bacteria.
