What are probiotic supplements?
Probiotic supplements are a type of food supplement that contains non-pathogenic and non-toxic bacteria or yeasts that contribute to the balance of the intestinal flora.
Probiotic supplements are defined as "bioactive" and are considered to be a new class of phytonutrients.
The intestinal flora is made up of millions of microorganisms that live in the small intestine: bacteria and fungi. This intestinal flora is very important for our health as it helps digestion and absorption of nutrients.
What are probiotics for?
Probiotic supplements serve to balance the intestinal flora. A good intestinal flora is essential for digestion and absorption of nutrients.
Probiotics can also be used to promote optimal health and even improve physical and mental health.
Probiotics are live microorganisms that, when ingested in adequate amounts, provide benefits for our health. It could be said that they feed on prebiotics and among their functions we find that they help strengthen our immune system.
What are the natural sources of probiotics?
There are also numerous probiotic foods that naturally contain helpful bacteria, such as yogurt.
A high-quality plain yogurt with live cultures can be a great addition to your diet if you want to add beneficial bacteria.
Fermented foods are another great option, as they contain beneficial bacteria that thrive on the natural sugar or fiber in your food.
Some examples of fermented foods are: sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha tea, kefir (dairy and non-dairy), some types of pickles (unpasteurized), and other pickled vegetables (unpasteurized).
If you are going to eat fermented foods for their probiotic benefits, make sure they are not pasteurized, as this process kills bacteria.
