You used to find quite a bit in yogurts and the like but so much of that is now processed out of them. Apparently, that 1 yogurt that claims to be good for your digestion does do a good job of keeping the probiotics living.
So what are probiotics, you may be asking? We do have them in our body's. But with all of the processes that our food supplies go through these days, many of these "good" bacteria are dead and worthless to us or are killed by the foods we ingest. this can lead to a number of issues for us fragile humans. From IBS and constipation to anxiety and stress, mood to even messing up our immune system and appearance. Our skin can be affected by "bad" bacteria in our system. Duh!
The more CFU's/serving (colony forming units) the better along with the number of strains of bacteria in the probiotic. There is a lot to look for. The bacteria also needs to be alive.
I'm giving it a try. I figure it can't hurt. I am confused a little because I do cook most of my own foods but I don't always buy organic and that may be what else I need to look at. I also wonder why "organic" always means 3x's the price. Can't help it. I've noticed that since I was in high school when raw cashews uncooked and unsalted were more expensive than their roasted, salted counterparts. Less done to and more cost????? didn't make sense to me and frankly, still doesn't. Oh well.
We need your help. A wonderful woman I know has been missing for a number of days now. Ann Pardo apparently went out for a walk Tuesday morning and hasn't been seen since. The news of this sent an ice, cold chill up my spine and immediately brought tears to my eyes.
Peace out & keep dancing
