Probiotic Yoghurt for Digestion

Probiotics benefit digestion and improve health…

Probiotic products contain live bacteria which keep the digestive system healthy. The probiotic bacteria work along with the good bacteria already present in the stomach to maintain intestinal health and promote digestion. This leads to intestinal lining being preserved, immunity receiving a boost, nutrients getting absorbed better and toxins being broken-down. Probiotics also suppress the growth of pathogenic bad bacteria.

As a consequence of unhealthy diet and erratic lifestyle bad bacteria in the gut gain an upper hand. Hence, regular consumption of probiotic products helps in aiding digestion as well as in controlling constipation and gas problems. The most easily available sources for probiotics in India are probiotic yoghurt, dahi and drinks.

In addition to yoghurt and dahi, other natural probiotic foods with active live cultures are Japanese miso paste, Eastern European Kefir, Korean kimchi, Indonesian tempeh, German sauerkraut and so on.
