Today’s London: Probiotics for a Healthier You

We have been bombarded with the word pro-biotics for years. I was under the impression until recently this meant your usual sweet yoghurt based shots you have first thing in the morning… but the more I investigate the more I realised…nope just another sugar filled shot of nonsense.

I went investigation on the world wide web and found out the benefits of having raw, unpasteurised and femented probiotics.

Probiotics help boost the billions of good bacteria that live in our gut… now you may be thinking “whaaa? I don’t want bacteria” no no no this is the good kind. The stuff that boosts your digestive health, increases your immunity, increases the level of nutrients you get from food and your overall wellness. It has also been linked to more energy, shedding pounds and help with allergies.

For more scientific info have a look at the following:

Wahoo – these sound wonderful – where do I get them…?

The best way to increase these bacteria is by the following:

  • Kefir – Several varieties of probiotic bacteria are found in kefir products such as Lactobacillius acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Streptoccus themophilius – the list goes on. It is tart to taste and is not good for those avoiding milk.

  • Sauerkraut – Good old pickle cabbage! Make sure it is raw and unpasteurised. I quite like this – its a bit vinegary but great to include in meals to give a sour/ sharp accompaniment.
  • Miso – Miso soup – found in most supermarkets or Japanese restaurants. Order as a side when out for dinner to give your tummy a boost

  • Tempeh – Similar to Tofu – tempeh is made from fermented soy beans originally from Indonesia. Full of protein and probiotics – an absolute winner to meatless monday or everyday life.
  • Kimchi – an spicy and sour side dish from Korea – packed full of probiotics. A great addition to make your stir fry a little more fiery

  • Kombucha tea – This one I am yet to try… (instantly jumps on amazon to order) a tea which can be sipped throughout the day to add this goodness in.

If you are like me and would give the world to feel full of energy, no bloatedness and know that my gut is as happy and healthy as the rest of me – then join me in my conquest to add billions of the good stuff to my gut.

Love your gut and your gut will love you
