The #1 food trend for health is Probiotics. What are Probiotics? The US Probiotic Organization states that they are "live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amount confer a health benefit on the host." When it comes to staying healthy and preventing disease you should consider adding probiotics to your daily regimen. Scientists are learning more each day about the role of microbes in keeping people healthy and the multitude of health benefits associated with consuming the right type and levels of probiotic microbes.
Probiotics was the number #1 food trend in 2008 and continues today to be at the forefront of food trends for health. It is not hard to understand why. As our society continues to grow fatter, develop more chronic degenerative disease, and suffer from pain, fatigue or worse, there are those seeking to change that tune and get as healthy as possible. Others that know the benefits of good health & seek to embrace the fact that if your body is effectively digesting, processing, utilizing and eliminating food then your health and immune systems will be improved. Research at Harvard University & discussed by the U.S. Probiotic Organization says that probiotics can be helpful for multiple conditions of poor health from preventing childhood allergies, decreased cancer risk, preventing dental carries, alleviating irritable bowel syndrome, preventing & eliminating yeast infections & candida, aid in treatment for Crohn's disease and more. Probiotics boost the immune system. They may also prevent multiple forms of digestive tract cancers like Colon Cancer. I personally have worked with and encountered many people that attest to the benefits of probiotics and superfoods. Thousands of people are using products like Superfood supplements containing probiotic organisms, probiotic capsules or tablets and the new generation of dairy free probiotic drinks.
The most well known way to get probiotics is yogurt but most yogurts are made with milk from cows treated with growth hormone or antibiotics that can be detrimental to your wellbeing & counteract the benefits of the probiotics. They also contribute to the development of allergies to dairy. Probiotics are beneficial however there are some conditions in which you will want to seek a qualified professionals advice regarding their use. That would be if you have a compromised or weakened immune system such as in the case of HIV and are taking certain medications. Certain probiotic organisms may want to be avoided in these individuals.
People using probiotics know that they feel better, have more energy, less fatigue, less pain & have regular bowel function. A company that I recently discovered is Good Belly. Good Belly was founded by Steve Demos ad Todd Beckman (formerly of White Wave - Largest producer of Soy products in the US) Read more about their story of GoodBelly at Good Belly.com What makes GoodBelly's products particularly appealing is that their products are dairy free which is substantial due to the fact that a large percentage of adults and children have some level of lactose or dairy intolerance and you don't have to worry about the hormones & antibiotics found in many dairy products including yogurt. They also us LP299v which is a naturally occurring probiotic organism found in the human digestive system used by millions in Sweden for more than 13 years with no harmful effects. I am not getting paid by GoodBelly or selling the product but just thought you should know about them. Have a great day and click the links for more information.
