Natural probiotics are fermented foods that cultivate good bacteria to benefit our gut and general health.
Yogurt is one of the best sources of probiotics while breastfeeding. In addition, it also helps maintain healthy levels of calcium and protein.
Sauerkraut is a finely cut raw green cabbage fermented by natural probiotics and lactic acid bacteria. I recommend taking sauerkraut without additives to get the maximum benefits of this food.
Like yogurt, kefir is another fermented dairy product, but it is made with several different types of bacteria and yeasts and is typically lactose-free.
Kombucha is a fermented tea made with sugar, yeast, and bacteria. It helps enhance digestion, support gut health, and balance your microbiome.
