Probiotics Boost the Immune System

June 14, 2019

The good bacteria found in fermented foods like kimchi, yogurt, kefir, and more have long been known to be good for our health. Studies have been piling up with specific ways the gut bacteria we cultivate influence us: mood (depression and motivation), cardio health, digestion, inflammation, weight, and now researchers have found that eating probiotics stimulates a specific immune system receptor.

Humans and great apes both have this third receptor, likely to aid the digestion of partly fermented foods. When we eat a bowl of yogurt or add some kimchi to our meal, we stimulate the receptor which scientists believe triggers inflammation management.

Probiotics are a part of a healthy diet. You can eat them, drink them, or get them from a probiotic supplement.

Cultivating good-for-us probiotics helps make us healthier—in addition to the direct benefits researchers are uncovering, they’re part of an important feedback loop of good habits (or without good bacteria, bad habits).

Good probiotic foods or supplements require refrigeration, have a wide variety of bacteria, and a high number of each. One example is Flora MGR, a high-quality probiotic supplement.

Because probiotics are so integral to soany aspects of our health, supporting our body with them is an important part of our health goals, whether it’s weight loss, mood management, or improving overall health. To change over to a robust colony of good bacteria can take a year. In addition to eating your way there, support the feedback loop—good habits grow good bacteria and vice versa! Sleep, exercise, fighting stress and eating veggies are all a part of a bigger picture that includes good, supportive bacteria.

Get a daily dose of probiotics with Flora MGR.
