Probiotics are living microorganisms that deliver a range of health benefits when included in the diet. Traditional fermented food sources of these bacteria exist in nearly every culture, and can also be taken in supplement form.

These beneficial microorganisms are believed to improve brain function and digestion, and may also promote heart health and better skin.

This list of healthy fermented foods containing beneficial probiotics can help you round out your health plan and get the most out of your menu.

  1. Kefir and Traditional Buttermilk

These fermented milk products may be well-tolerated even by those who are lactose intolerant because friendly bacteria have already begun to digest the milk sugar (lactose) that causes problems for some people.

The name “kefir” is derived from the Turkish word “keyif,” referring to feeling good after eating it.

Kefir grains added to goat or cow’s milk are cultures consisting of yeast and lactic acid bacteria; the potent bacterial action of the several strains contained in kefir have been valued as a healthy food for centuries.

Animal studies indicate bone health is supported by the consumption of kefir; it may also provide protection against infections, as well as helping to correct digestive problems.

Buttermilk can refer to any one of several fermented dairy products, but the only kind containing live cultures is the traditional type, which is the liquid remaining after butter is made.

Commonly used in Pakistan, India and Nepal, traditional buttermilk is skinny on calories and rich in several important nutrients, including calcium, phosphorus, riboflavin and vitamin B12.

Healthy Bacteria

Probiotics are gaining momentum and for good reasons. Probiotics, also known as the friendly bacteria, are necessary for a healthy body and mind. Bacteria outnumber cells 10 to 1. On average, there are 5 pounds of bacteria in the human body. The key to a healthy micro-biome is to have the right balance of the friendly bacteria and the not as friendly bacteria. The not as friendly bacteria are necessary for a healthy micro-biome. It’s all about the correct balance. 

Since so many people are having digestive, immune, skin and brain issues, taking a high quality supplemental probiotic can start the journey to a healthier body and mind. Eating super healthy foods, including some fermented foods, is necessary to ensure the correct micro-biome balance. Some of the healthy fermented foods include sauerkraut, miso, raw yogurt and kefir, and kombucha. Other healthy protocols to ensure a healthy micro-biome include using natural and organic body care products, cutting back on taking showers every day, reducing or eliminating over the counter medications and antibiotics, and embracing dirt and germs by walking outside, barefooted, on natural surfaces such as grass, sand and dirt. Walking barefoot on the Earth’s natural surfaces is called Earthing. 

It can be overwhelming when deciding on what supplemental probiotics to take. There are dozens of choices at health food stores, many with different strains and with different amounts of probiotics, ranging from 5 billion to 400 billion. Fortunately, reviews.com has done a wonderful job of researching the maze of probiotics on the market by analyzing the effectiveness of the different probiotics based on different types of health issues.
