Probiotics? Are They Worth the Hype?
Probiotics are live bacteria and cultures that are found naturally in fermented foods. They aid in digestion and help regulate women’s natural flora. There are many different strains and it seems like everyone is talking about them. Is it worth it to start taking probiotics? Yes, it is. If you are having a hard time with your digestion, getting frequent yeast infections, or taking antibiotics, you should take probiotics. Probiotics are most commonly found in yogurt or kefir. Make sure the yogurt you buy contains live and active probiotics, Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. If you don’t like yogurt, then you can find probiotic supplements at any vitamin or health food store.
