Enough gloating about them and let me you tell you about these little wonders.
First, when did this all start? These awesome little microorganisms were found by doctors of course. It was in the mid-1990’s that doctors had found that were multiple health benefits from prescribing their patients to increase there probiotics to ensure better health. They had found that there are two probiotics that are health benefits and they can be found in all kinds of foods. Not just in a pill form. They are found in foods you probably eat on an everyday basis or even at least on occasion. These two awesome probiotics are called Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus.
Bifidobacterium is a probiotic that is found in most yogurts, dark chocolate, and even pickles. Doctors have done studies to show that this type of probiotic can help people who suffer from most bowl syndromes and diseases.
Lactobacillus, Is a probiotic that is found in most yogurts and pickles too as well as kombucha, and sauerkraut. Doctors have found that this type of probiotic can help people who suffer from diarrhea. It is also been shown that it can help people who have trouble digesting lactose, which is the sugar that is found in most kinds of milk.

For women, it helps support a healthy vaginal and urinary. It can also help prevent colds. Also for those who suffer from allergies, it can help with that as well.
The reason that probiotics are so awesome and have such good health benefits is the fact that they have a good balance of good and bad bacteria. Those good and bad bacteria help balance our bacteria that is already existing in our bodies. So of course when your body has that good balance it can function the way it should. When our body is running well we can fight and heal.
When we take antibiotics for an infection it treats the infection but it also drains our bodies natural bacteria. Which is why in most cases when we take antibiotics we have that terrible side effects of either diarrhea or for women a yeast infection. It is cause our bodies are flushing out bacteria and it throws our bodies natural balance off. By eating yogurts, kombucha, pickles, sauerkraut, and dark chocolate. It can help your body rebuild its natural bacteria.
