Four Reasons to Eat More Probiotics

Your immune system could always use more support.

One of the main reasons you should eat more probiotics is for your immune response. Your digestive system plays a huge part in your overall health, and the bacteria in your gut supports your immune system, as well as your stress levels, cholesterol, and even your skin.

Keeping your gut healthy is crucial to a lot of your body’s systems, and the best way to do that is with regular probiotics, from foods like Greek yogurt, dairy, and kombucha.

Here are four benefits to probiotics:

Regularity- Staying regular is one of the best ways to keep things flowing in your digestive system. Unfortunately a lot of the junk food we eat these days doesn’t pass through our systems very easily. Probiotics help keep things running smoothly, which is great for weight-loss, metabolism, and overall health.

Energy- When your body is getting the right nutrients, it creates more energy which helps you feel better overall. Have you ever noticed that you feel sluggish after eating a bag of chips, and energized after eating a kale salad? There’s a reason for that.

Weight Loss- When your digestive system is healthy, your absorption of nutrients helps keep your metabolism up and running. This helps aid in weight loss, so eating more probiotics will not only make you feel better, but look better too.

Less Bloating- Bloating is generally caused when the balance of good and bad bacteria in your gut is thrown off. Once that balance is achieved, you will experience less bloating overall.
