Probiotics Foods & You


Studies show that probiotics actually reduce or eliminate many stomach complaints. And now this good bacteria is regularly added to many common diary products. Is this really good news for our health? Or should we be concerned?

What are Probiotics

Probiotics are the good bacteria found in our stomachs. Probiotics also known as acidophilus is thought to relieve many stomach complaints, prevent illness, and aid the digestion. And because of this fact, many food manufacturers are using this as a lucrative reason to add probiotics to the foods they sell.

Probiotic Foods

Maybe you've digested probiotic foods without really realizing the fact. Why? Probiotics are commonly found in many of the foods most of us eat everyday. Let me begin by saying I love yogurt! Yogurt is produced in many sizes, styles, and flavors. When ever I start a new diet I always use yogurt as one of my main food products. Often, consuming a cup of yogurt in place of one full meal. Now, probiotics is the new rage in healthy eating. And probiotics are regularly added to many yogurts like Dannon and StonyField Farm. Probiotics are also added to sour cream, regular cheese, and popular sports drinks.

Some prefer to take their probiotics in supplemental form. This is an easy and fast way to boost the amount of good bacteria in their digestive system. These supplements are usually available at local health food stores and some supermarkets.

Probiotic Benefits

What are the common health benefits? This is what everyone would like to know. Well, lets first look back at exactly what the deal is with probiotics. First, researchers know that probiotics is the good bacteria. And they found that by adding the good bacteria (probiotics) to the stomach the amount of bad bacteria is reduced. That's it in easy digestible terms for the average person. And here are a few more health benefits.

Treat Stomach Problems
Treat Female Complaints
Treat Urinary Tract Problems
Treat Vaginal Infections
Treat Diarrhea, Gas, Bloating
Lowers Blood Pressure
Lowers Cholesterol

Probiotic Warnings

Some researchers found evidence that people who suffer from lactose intolerance might benefit from taking probiotics because it helps them digest more lactose than usual. Other researchers say this may not be necessarily so for all lactose intolerant people. And that probiotics should not be taken to treat lactose intolerance.

Many wonder if probiotics is just the new health fad of the decade. Over time most of us should know. Meanwhile, have you had your yogurt today?
