7 Probiotic Foods That Are Great For Your Gut....

Probiotics are live, friendly bacteria that are in the intestinal tract and play an important role in maintaining your digestive — and overall — health.
Antibiotics, excess sugar consumption, and stress kill the naturally occurring probiotics, leaving more bad bacteria than good. This imbalance can lead to food allergies, skin issues, urinary tract infections, and evenmood disorders
Here are 7 foods to incorporate into your diet that pack a powerful probiotic punch:
1. Yogurt
Yogurt’s often recommended for those who are taking antibiotics or struggling with yeast infections and it’s chock full of beneficial bacteria.
2. Sourdough Bread
Sourdough bread contains both yeast and a bacteria called lactobacillus; both benefit the digestive tract.
3. Kombucha
Kombucha is made by fermenting sweetened tea with a blend of bacteria and yeast. The health benefits of kombucha include reduced joint pain, increased energy, and improved digestion and immune support.
4. Miso
Miso is a Japanese seasoning made from fermented soybeans (and sometimes rice or barley). It helps regulate the digestive system and lowers the risk of heart disease and cancer.
