Probiotics are live microorganisms that can be consumed through fermented foods or supplements.
Live probiotic cultures can be found in fermented dairy products such as yoghurts and milk drinks. Fermented foods like pickled vegetables, tempeh, miso, kefir, kimchi, sauerkraut and soy products may also contain some lactic acid bacteria.
You can also take probiotics as tablets, capsules and powders that contain the bacteria in dried form.

These include benefits for weight loss, digestive health, immune function and much more!
