Can I Naturally Get Probiotics From Food?

    Probiotic foods are an important aspect to a healthy diet.

    The answer is yes. Certain foods have probiotics in them and can benefit the health of your microbiome. You may be regularly eating them and not realise that they contain probiotics. These foods can be introduced into your diet at any moment. A few suggestions for probiotic-rich foods include:[1]

    • Yoghurt
    • Sourdough bread
    • Kombucha
    • Kimchi
    • Cottage Cheese
    • Miso

    It is important to ensure that each meal is a balanced and healthy meal. Adding too much of just one food type prevents your body from reaping the benefits of other food groups.
