What are all the probiotics we need to add in our daily diet?
Hello, I am 35 years old. I recently suffered from covid19 and has got recovered. As I was on antibiotics for many days, my gut flora has got disturbed. I heard that probiotics are good for maintaining the flora. I am thinking of adding probiotics in my diet. But I am not sure about what to add. Can anybody suggest me what are all the probiotics we need to add in our daily diet?
@rekha There are two ways to get more good bacteria into your gut: fermented foods and dietary supplements. Fermented foods are the most natural source. Probiotic supplements, which are typically sold over the counter, are reserved to treat specific ailments as suggested by your doctor, and not recommended for everyday use. Plus, supplements do not have the same FDA oversight as medications do. There is no recommended daily intake for probiotics, so there is no way to know exactly which fermented foods or what quantity is best. Therefore, the general guideline is to just add as many fermented foods to your daily diet as possible.
