Thanks for asking Paula! There are a number of foods that naturally contain probiotics. Just keep in mind that probiotics must be alive when ingested to be of benefit. Often, the food production process destroys living bacteria. If a product is available on a shelf and is not refrigerated, it may not contain live and active probiotics. Look for foods that have minimal artificial sweeteners, sugars, and other artificial flavorings. Here is a list of some foods to add to your diet to support a healthy microbiome.
Yogurt (but watch out for high sugar content), sauerkraut, kefir, tempeh, miso, kombucha, buttermilk, natto, pickles and aged cheeses such as gouda, mozzarella, cheddar and cottage cheese.
And you can consider adding bananas for their ‘pre-biotic’ benefits to help feed your beneficial bacteria.
