Have you ever realized that every day you are constantly carrying a mob of tiny organisms along with you wherever you go and whatever activity you do! Yes! These microbes found in your gut are called probiotics. In other words, they are also called 'the friendly bacteria' that colonize in your intestines. They exist naturally in your bodies and have certain functions to perform. They are found in foods like yoghurt, dahi and fermented foods like sauerkraut. They can also be taken as supplements to aid your digestion and bowel movements. The most common probiotic bacteria are Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria. Probiotic-rich foods like homemade 'Dahi' or curd is almost considered as a staple food in India, as it goes into the plates every day.
Did you know that our bodies contain more bacteria than human cells? Our bodies are home to almost a hundred trillion bacteria!
They are so vital for our bodies that even a small imbalance in their numbers can put you in big trouble, especially when the gut microbe balance shifts. Consuming foods rich in probiotics can help your body to maintain a healthy colony of microbes. It can also contribute to weight management.
